St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina (thumb) was scratched from the Game 4 lineup Tuesday, Oct. 13, with C Tony Cruz hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is not a potent enough weapon to use on FantasyScore against Jason Hammel.

Cardinals | Tony Cruz to start every day

Mon, 21 Sep 2015 15:08:23 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Tony Cruz will become the team's everyday catcher with C Yadier Molina (thumb) sidelined for at least a week. Cruz was hitting .173 with a home run and seven RBI in only 104 at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: It's a huge dropoff both offensively and defensively from Molina to Cruz ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) for the Cardinals. Stash Molina in all fantasy formats in hopes he can return for the final week, although he may be limited regardless. Cruz isn't a viable option unless you're in an NL-only league, and he's a low-end FantasyScore play to close out the year.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina sits again

Fri, 18 Sep 2015 08:48:17 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina is out of the lineup Friday, Sept. 18, with C Tony Cruz hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Molina struck out six times in two games a couple days ago and clearly needed a couple of days as a breather. Cruz ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) isn't skilled enough offensively to use on FantasyScore against Dan Haren at this juncture.

Thu, 17 Sep 2015 15:20:05 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Sept. 17. C Tony Cruz is behind the plate and is batting seventh against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting just .188 (18-for-96) with one homer and six RBI in 2015 and is not a good pick for daily gamers.

Cardinals | Tony Cruz catching Saturday

Sat, 12 Sep 2015 10:21:40 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Tony Cruz will bat seventh against the Cincinnati Reds Saturday, Sept. 12. C Yadier Molina will receive the game off.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is batting just .176 (6-for-34) since the All-Star break and is not a great FantasyScore catching option today.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina sitting against Nats

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 13:33:31 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 2. C Tony Cruz is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Molina ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) drove in 21 runs in August, which was by far his largest monthly total, but the backstop can't play every day. Don't rule out a solid finish from Molina, but just note he is no longer a power threat with just four long flies this year. Cruz ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore Wednesday.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina not in the lineup

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 16:04:50 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina is not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa Thursday, Aug. 27. C Tony Cruz will start at catcher and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Molina ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the next game or two. Cruz ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting .177 in limited playing time this season and should not be a starting option on FantasyScore.
