Cardinals | Kolten Wong suffers head contusion

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 15:36:46 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong (head) suffered a head contusion in Game 1 of the doubleheader against the Chicago Cubs Tuesday, July 7, and he's sitting out of Game 2. Wong suffered the injury making a leaping catch in shallow right field. He felt dizzy and walked off with a trainer due to a headache. Wong said he passed concussion tests, but manager Mike Matheny had not confirmed it. "I checked out fine," Wong said. "I was a little slow on some parts, but that just happens when you hit your head. I told them I don't feel concussed at all. I don't feel out of it. I have a little headache, but that's about it." 3B Matt Carpenter is starting at second base in Game 2.

Fantasy Tip: The Cardinals are likely to take a cautious approach with Wong ($5,300, 10.6% of cap), especially with the All-Star break next week. Be wary of using him for the next couple of days on FantasyScore, and check back to see if he's in the starting lineup.

Cardinals | Matt Carpenter out in Game 1

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 08:59:34 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter is not in the starting lineup for Game 1 of the team's doubleheader Tuesday, July 7. 1B Mark Reynolds moves across the diamond to play third base. 1B Xavier Scruggs is starting at first base and hitting seventh against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta.

Fantasy Tip: Both Reynolds ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) and Scruggs ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) are both risky options at FantasyScore today. Reynolds has more upside because of his home run power, but Arrieta has allowed just eight home runs in 106 innings this year.

Cardinals | No Matt Carpenter Tuesday

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 15:16:43 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter is not in the lineup against Chicago White Sox left-handed SP Chris Sale Tuesday, June 30. 1B Mark Reynolds is starting at third base, while 1B Xavier Scruggs is starting at first base and hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Scruggs ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be left alone tonight on FantasyScore in a bad matchup. Reynolds ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is also a weak play against this dominant southpaw.

Cardinals | Matt Carpenter back in lineup

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 11:07:32 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter (back) is back in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Mat Latos Wednesday, June 24.

Fantasy Tip: Carpenter ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) should be a fine addition to your FantasyScore lineups today, and don't worry about the back tightness that kept him out yesterday. Carpenter enjoys plenty of success against righties (.335/.444/.553 with six of his eight home runs), and Latos has been very hittable in Miami.

Cardinals | Matt Carpenter out with back tightness

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 15:30:42 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter (back) is out Tuesday, June 23, against the Miami Marlins due to mid-back tightness. Manager Mike Matheny was looking to give Carpenter a day off prior to learning of the injury.

Fantasy Tip: Carpenter ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) was 0-for-8 in his past two games, so this may be something that had been lingering a little bit. Carpenter should be expected back in the lineup before too long, but owners should monitor the situation.

Cardinals | No Matt Carpenter Tuesday

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 12:17:11 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 23. 1B Mark Reynolds is starting at third base and hitting cleanup, while 1B Xavier Scruggs starts at first and is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Reynolds ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) loses some FantasyScore luster while taking hacks in the spacious Marlins Park. Scruggs ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) can be ignored everywhere.

Cardinals | Golden sombrero for Matt Carpenter

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 05:18:41 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter struck out in all four at-bats Tuesday, June 9, against the Colorado Rockies.

Fantasy Tip: Ouch. Carpenter ($5,300; or 10.6% of cap) totally laid an egg for FantasyScore owners Tuesday. He is still hitting .294 on the season and is normally much more dependable. Consider Tuesday’s stat line an anomaly.

Sat, 06 Jun 2015 21:00:19 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter (triceps) is considered day-to-day with a right triceps contusion after being hit by a pitch Saturday, June 6.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is that the injury doesn't sound too serious, but you will have to check on Carpenter's ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) availability over the next few days in order to use him at FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Matt Carpenter exits after HBP

Sat, 06 Jun 2015 20:34:31 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter (elbow) left in the first inning against the Los Angeles Dodgers after being hit by a pitch on the elbow Saturday, June 6. He was replaced by 3B Pete Kozma.

Fantasy Tip: Stay tuned for an update on Carpenter's condition. As for Kozma ($1,600, 3.2% of cap), he is hitting just .111 this year and offers little value at FantasyScore if the injury results in added playing time.
