Cardinals | Two players hot against Kyle Hendricks

Sat, 10 Oct 2015 00:59:12 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter and OF Matt Holliday have solid records against Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks. Carpenter is 6-for-10 with a homer and three RBIs and Holliday is 6 for 12 with two homers and four RBIs.

Fantasy Tip: Carpenter ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) and Holliday ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) are sweet targets for your FantasyScore lineup under these circumstances. Past history suggests one or both players could sizzle in Game 2 of the NLDS.

Cardinals | Several STL starters resting in Game 2

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 13:13:12 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday, OF Jason Heyward, 3B Matt Carpenter, OF Stephen Piscotty, SS Jhonny Peralta and 2B Kolten Wong are all not starting in Game 2 of the doubleheader Sunday, Oct. 4, against the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: Seeing this is the final game of the regular season, this is to be expected. Manager Mike Matheny is simply resting his starters. Of the reserves, OF Tommy Pham ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) might be worth a flier on FantasyScore.

Cardinals | St. Louis resting regulars

Fri, 02 Oct 2015 13:29:03 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OFs Jason Heyward, Matt Holliday and Stephen Piscotty (head), 3B Matt Carpenter, 2B Kolten Wong and SS Jhonny Peralta are not in the starting lineup against the Atlanta Braves Friday, Oct. 2.

Fantasy Tip: The Cardinals boast strong depth, so their lineup isn't exactly a cast of Class AAA players. However, Braves SP Julio Teheran ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) owns a 3.06 ERA and held opposing hitters to a .596 OPS through his 16 starts at Turner Field this season. There are enough cushier matchups to target for FantasyScore players Friday.

Cardinals | Matt Carpenter removed from game

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 00:25:18 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter (hip) was removed from the game against the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday, Sept. 26, after five innings due to left hip tightness. After the game Carpenter said the move was a precaution and he will play Sunday, Sept. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Carpenter ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) will likely make the call on his own, but check the lineup before you do anything else.

Cardinals | Kolten Wong out against southpaw

Wed, 23 Sep 2015 15:05:39 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong is not in the lineup against Cincinnati Reds left-handed SP Brandon Finnegan Wednesday, Sept. 23. 3B Matt Carpenter moves to second base and 1B Mark Reynolds is starting at the hot corner and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Reynolds ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has plenty of power but is a lotto ticket for FantasyScore gamers tonight, even against a left-handed youngster. Reynolds swings and misses too much to be relied on consistently, and he's hitting only .221 (23-for-104) with five of his 12 home runs this season. Carpenter ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) isn't attractive when facing lefties from the right side, either.

Cardinals | Matt Carpenter with three hits

Thu, 17 Sep 2015 20:35:13 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter went 3-for-5 with a solo home run and three runs scored in a 6-3 win over the Milwaukee Brewers Thursday, Sept. 17.

Fantasy Tip: After a slow start to the month, Carpenter ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has back-to-back games with a homer and three hits. Feel free to use him at FantasyScore when he draws a favorable matchup against a weak starter, but make sure to avoid him against lefties.

Cardinals | Kolten Wong out again

Tue, 08 Sep 2015 15:29:54 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong (calf) is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 8. 3B Matt Carpenter moves over to second base, and 1B Mark Reynolds is starting at third base and is hitting sixth against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel.

Fantasy Tip: Reynolds ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has big power but makes little contact to rely on him seriously on FantasyScore. He's an all-or-nothing type of player that could homer and knock in runs in bunches or go 0-for-5 with five strikeouts.

Cardinals | Kolten Wong scratched

Mon, 07 Sep 2015 11:03:47 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong (calf) was scratched from the starting lineup Monday, Sept. 7, because of a tight calf. 3B Matt Carpenter will start at second base, while 1B Mark Reynolds will start at third base.

Fantasy Tip: Wong ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is dealing with a minor injury and should return soon. Reynolds ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is batting .240 this season and may not be the best option on FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Matt Carpenter to play at 1B

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 15:50:46 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter will start at first base against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa Thursday, Aug. 27, and is batting first. 3B Greg Garcia will start at third base and is batting eighth, while 1B Mark Reynolds is not in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Carpenter ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has not seen a lot of playing time at first base but is should not affect his fantasy value. Garcia ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is hitting .298 in limited playing time this season, but owners on FantasyScore may be able to better options to use.

Cardinals | Kolten Wong with day off

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 14:45:19 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong is out of the lineup Saturday, Aug. 22, with 3B Matt Carpenter shifting to second base. 1B Mark Reynolds is playing third and hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Reynolds ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) isn't a good play against Ian Kennedy in Petco Park on FantasyScore.
