St. Louis Cardinals 2B Daniel Descalso is starting for the second straight day at shortstop with SS Pete Kozma being benched so that he can work on his swing. Descalso has hit .355 in his last 30 games and had three hits Thursday, July 4. However, manager Mike Matheny was careful to say that there isn't a platoon situation in the works at shortstop. SS Ryan Jackson is batting .306 with a .384 on-base percentage at Triple-A Memphis, but he isn't an option for the team's bench at this moment.
Fantasy Tip: The Cards haven't given up on Kozma just yet, so you should look to retain him in cavernous mixed leagues. Descalso deserves some short-term attention in NL-only leagues.

St. Louis Cardinals 3B David Freese (back) will begin the season on the disabled list. SS Ryan Jackson will make the team in his absence.
Fantasy Tip: He isn't expected to be out long. After the MRI came back clean, this is likely a move to give him more at-bats before throwing him to the lions in the majors.

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Daniel Descalso is the favorite to enter the season as the starting second baseman, but 3B Matt Carpenter will challenge him at the position. INFs Pete Kozma and Ryan Jackson are in the mix for bench spots, but 2B Kolten Wong could make his way up at some point if he plays well in the minors.

Although St. Louis Cardinals SS Rafael Furcal (elbow) appears on track to be fully healthy for spring training and opening day, the team is unsure how his elbow will hold up when he resumes playing at full effort this spring. St. Louis is expected to be more cautious when giving Furcal playing time in order to keep him healthy throughout the season. INFs Daniel Descalso, Pete Kozma and Ryan Jackson are potential backups at shortstop for Furcal.
