Cardinals | Oscar Taveras in center field

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 13:00:58 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Oscar Taveras is starting in center field Wednesday, July 9, against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Fantasy Tip: This is what fantasy owners are hoping happens more frequently going forward. Allen Craig, Matt Adams, Matt Holliday and Taveras are all in the lineup. Manager Mike Matheny said he would give Taveras time in center field depending on the stadium. Today's start comes at home, so Taveras could begin getting additional starts in center field if he plays well defensively. NL-only owners will want to monitor this situation closely, as Jon Jay and Peter Bourjos could lose even more playing time.

Cardinals | Allen Craig sitting

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 13:29:03 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Allen Craig is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 8, against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Fantasy Tip: Replace Craig in your lineup. He has been held hitless over his past two games and could begin to lose even more playing time to Matt Adams and Oscar Taveras, if he continues to struggle.

Cardinals | Allen Craig sitting

Thu, 03 Jul 2014 10:26:26 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Allen Craig is out of the starting lineup Thursday, July 3, with OF Oscar Taveras starting in right field. Craig is hitless in his last seven at-bats and is 6-for-34 on the current road trip. SS Jhonny Peralta is moving into the cleanup spot for the fourth time on the road trip.

Fantasy Tip: With Taveras back in the fold, daily lineup manuevering for fantasy purposes might be tricky. You'll have to consistently check the daily lineups to make sure your guy is starting.

Cardinals | Matt Holiday sitting

Tue, 01 Jul 2014 15:44:14 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday (rest) is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, July 1. OF Oscar Taveras is playing right field, and OF Allen Craig is playing left field.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Mike Matheny to get creative with his lineups with the addition of Taveras to the mix. Owners will need to monitor the Cardinals lineup daily. Matt Adams will also be affected and Taveras could even see time in center field. Expect Taveras to see enough at-bats to be a worthy add in all formats. Similarly, the routine days off shouldn't amount to enough missed playing time to seriously hurt any of the Cardinals' top players.

Cardinals | Allen Craig hit in head

Mon, 02 Jun 2014 07:25:28 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Allen Craig (head) was hit in the back of the head with a pitch Sunday, June 1, but stayed in the game until it became a blowout. The team says he's OK, and Craig said he didn't have any concussion symptoms.

Fantasy Tip: Keep an eye on this situation because sometimes concussions can creep up a couple of days later.

Cardinals | Matt Adams to be placed on DL

Fri, 30 May 2014 20:48:43 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said 1B Matt Adams (calf) will be placed on the 15-day disabled list because of his calf injury.

Fantasy Tip: Adams' injury likely will allow the team to give Oscar Taveras some playing time since Allen Craig probably will play first base while Adams is out of the lineup. Owners should pick up Taveras if he is available in their league.

Cardinals | Randall Grichuk hitting second

Fri, 30 May 2014 13:40:45 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Randal Grichuk is hitting second Friday, May 30, against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner. 1B Matt Adams is sitting, and Allen Craig is taking his spot.

Fantasy Tip: Grichuk may be a temporary fixture against southpaws; St. Louis needs to jump-start this lineup somehow, and they'll have DH at-bats coming up in the next few weeks. He's a deep-mixed asset to which you can give a trial add. Oscar Taveras doesn't have an everyday spot yet, which, along with the Super Two status, may delay his arrival.
