Cardinals | Allen Craig sitting, Oscar Taveras in lineup

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 14:55:06 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B/OF Allen Craig is not in the lineup Wednesday, July 23. OF Oscar Taveras is starting in his place, only his third time in the lineup since July 10.

Fantasy Tip: Mike Matheny is juggling playing time between the two bats, and it's becoming a frustrating game for fantasy owners, especially those who can only change their lineups weekly.

Cardinals | No Oscar Taveras

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 15:26:43 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Oscar Taveras is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 22, against the Tampa Bay Rays. Taveras can benefit more from two starts per week with the Cardinals than he would playing at Class AAA, where he has proven himself, according to manager Mike Matheny.

Fantasy Tip: Clearly, Matheny isn't committed to playing Taveras every day, at least at this point. Taveras should continue to see semi-regular playing time and is worth holding. However, this is far from an ideal situation for fantasy owners.

Cardinals | Oscar Taveras in center field

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 13:00:58 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Oscar Taveras is starting in center field Wednesday, July 9, against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Fantasy Tip: This is what fantasy owners are hoping happens more frequently going forward. Allen Craig, Matt Adams, Matt Holliday and Taveras are all in the lineup. Manager Mike Matheny said he would give Taveras time in center field depending on the stadium. Today's start comes at home, so Taveras could begin getting additional starts in center field if he plays well defensively. NL-only owners will want to monitor this situation closely, as Jon Jay and Peter Bourjos could lose even more playing time.

Cardinals | Allen Craig sitting

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 13:29:03 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Allen Craig is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 8, against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Fantasy Tip: Replace Craig in your lineup. He has been held hitless over his past two games and could begin to lose even more playing time to Matt Adams and Oscar Taveras, if he continues to struggle.

Cardinals | Allen Craig sitting

Thu, 03 Jul 2014 10:26:26 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Allen Craig is out of the starting lineup Thursday, July 3, with OF Oscar Taveras starting in right field. Craig is hitless in his last seven at-bats and is 6-for-34 on the current road trip. SS Jhonny Peralta is moving into the cleanup spot for the fourth time on the road trip.

Fantasy Tip: With Taveras back in the fold, daily lineup manuevering for fantasy purposes might be tricky. You'll have to consistently check the daily lineups to make sure your guy is starting.

Cardinals | Oscar Taveras starting in CF

Wed, 02 Jul 2014 15:24:47 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Oscar Taveras is starting in center field Wednesday, July 2.

Fantasy Tip: Taveras is expected to mainly play the corner outfield spots, but St. Louis would like to challenge him in center, too, since it'll give them more lineup flexibility. If Taveras proves he can be effective in center, it means less playing time for Peter Bourjos.

Cardinals | Oscar Taveras could play all OF spots

Wed, 02 Jul 2014 11:47:48 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Oscar Taveras, who will likely be used mostly in left and right field, could also end up in center field. He says he's comfortable playing all three outfield positions, which could mean OF Peter Bourjos loses some playing time. Taveras is prepared to stick around this time after hitting .189 after his initial call-up.

Fantasy Tip: Mike Matheny acknowledged that there is no set plan to get Taveras playing time, and he'll have to mix and match when players need rest. Bourjos and Matt Adams could be the ones affected the most when Taveras plays, though.

Cardinals | Matt Holiday sitting

Tue, 01 Jul 2014 15:44:14 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday (rest) is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, July 1. OF Oscar Taveras is playing right field, and OF Allen Craig is playing left field.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Mike Matheny to get creative with his lineups with the addition of Taveras to the mix. Owners will need to monitor the Cardinals lineup daily. Matt Adams will also be affected and Taveras could even see time in center field. Expect Taveras to see enough at-bats to be a worthy add in all formats. Similarly, the routine days off shouldn't amount to enough missed playing time to seriously hurt any of the Cardinals' top players.
