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.

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong is not in the starting lineup Monday, Aug. 24. 2B Greg Garcia is starting at the keystone and batting eighth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Jhoulys Chacin Monday.
Fantasy Tip: The Cards broke out for 10 runs Sunday, Aug. 23, so it isn't surprising to see manager Mike Matheny stick with the same lineup Monday. Make sure to avoid Wong ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) in all fantasy formats, and it is worth adding, he is really struggling with a .145/.224/.145 slash line and just one multi-hit game in August. Garcia ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) brings solid contact skills to the plate and could open up plenty of cap space at FantasyScore Monday. He is worth a look, if you're trying to stack your lineup at other positions.

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong is not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan Sunday, June 21. 2B Greg Garcia will start at second base and is batting eighth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Wong ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) may be sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Garcia has picked up a hit in both of his at-bats this season but is still not a starting option in fantasy leagues yet.
