Cardinals | Randal Grichuk starting in center field

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 13:17:14 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Randal Grichuk (groin) is starting in center field and batting seventh against Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani Wednesday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: Grichuk ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) missed the past two games with a groin injury, so there is a slight injury risk with rushing him back into your FantasyScore lineups Wednesday. Plus, he is down the batting order a little. Still, it is difficult to discredit Grichuk's body of work this season. He has 34 runs, 11 home runs, 36 RBI and a .281/.333/.558 slash line.

Cardinals | Randal Grichuk expected back soon

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 16:05:31 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Randal Grichuk (groin) is not expected to miss a lot of time because of the groin injury he suffered during the game Sunday, July 26. Grichuk underwent an MRI Monday, July 27, which did not reveal any problems, but another doctor was scheduled to look over the MRI.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation to see when Grichuk ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) will be able to return to the lineup. He is hitting .276 with four home runs and 15 RBI this month and should be a solid option when he returns to the lineup.

Cardinals | No Randal Grichuk Monday

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 14:54:51 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Randal Grichuk (groin) is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 27. OF Peter Bourjos is starting in center field and hitting eighth against Cincinnati Reds SP Raisel Iglesias.

Fantasy Tip: Bourjos ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has been playing very sparingly lately as a bench option, and he's hitting only .184 (7-for-38) with no home runs and three RBI in July. Bourjos is valuable for his speed, but he hasn't been getting on base enough to make him a viable fantasy option.

Cardinals | Randal Grichuk has MRI

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 14:10:10 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Randal Grichuk (groin) underwent an MRI exam Monday, July 27, that showed no serious concerns with his groin injury. Grichuk will likely be available to pinch hit Monday.

Fantasy Tip: You'll want to avoid Grichuk ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) on FantasyScore tonight and possibly tomorrow, too. Stephen Piscotty ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) remains in the starting lineup and isn't a bad value target against Cincinnati Reds starter Raisel Iglesias tonight. Piscotty has four hits in his first 12 at-bats for the Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Pham ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has a tough matchup at leadoff against Jake Arrieta, but he has flashed some power and speed potential. We need more of a sample size before using him on FantasyScore.
