Cardinals | Kolten Wong not in the lineup

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 09:51:30 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: Kozma ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has no FantasyScore appeal.

Cardinals | Kolten Wong adapting to leadoff spot

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 10:45:29 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong is adapting nicely to the leadoff spot, and he has reached base in 8 of 16 game opening plate appearances in the leadoff spot. "It's kind of been trials here and there," Wong said. "Most coaches don't really like me being a leadoff hitter just because I'm so aggressive, but I've learned how to kind of be aggressive but in the zone and be someone who can still see pitches and get on base." Wong has nine runs scored in the last nine games he's started.

Fantasy Tip: After a slow start as the table setter for St. Louis, Wong ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is now hitting the ground running, and he's hitting .306 (60-for-196) with six home runs, 23 RBI and four stolen bases on the year. It looks like the Red Birds have found their leadoff hitter, and there's no reason to believe he won't continue to be a solid FantasyScore play moving forward.

Cardinals | Kolten Wong will not start

Sun, 31 May 2015 11:02:14 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 31. 2B Pete Kozma will be the starting second baseman for the team.

Fantasy Tip: Wong ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and should play in the next game. Kozma ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting only .119 this season and should be avoided on FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Kolten Wong collects three hits

Wed, 20 May 2015 20:11:47 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong went 3-for-5 with two RBI against the New York Mets Wednesday, May 20.

Fantasy Tip: Wong ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has picked up at least one hit in six of his last seven games and has five RBI in his last four games. Wong is one of the better options at second base and could be a solid option on FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Kolten Wong back at leadoff

Wed, 20 May 2015 13:39:51 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong is back in the leadoff spot against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon Wednesday, May 20.

Fantasy Tip: Wong ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) hasn't hit well in the limited at-bats he's had in the leadoff spot this year, but that shouldn't discourage you from clicking on him at FantasyScore. He's hitting .304 (31-for-102) with four of his five home runs off right-handed pitchers, and although Colon is having a fine season so far, he shouldn't scare you away from Wong.

Cardinals | Kolten Wong setting the table

Mon, 18 May 2015 12:30:10 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong is batting leadoff against the New York Mets Monday, May 18.

Fantasy Tip: The bump to the leadoff spot is a plus for Wong's ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) runs and stolen bases upside, but it will lead to fewer RBI opportunities. FantasyScore players will take the trade off, especially with him sporting a 1.076 OPS with nine runs, four home runs and 11 RBI over his past 14 games. Daily players will want to note the potentially daunting matchup against Matt Harvey Monday, though.

Cardinals | Kolten Wong leading off

Tue, 12 May 2015 11:34:22 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong is hitting leadoff against Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco Tuesday, May 12.

Fantasy Tip: Wong ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has performed much better near the top of the lineup this season, although he has yet to hit leadoff. It boosts his FantasyScore value and makes him very attractive against Carrasco tonight.

Cardinals | Kolten Wong dialed in at the plate

Fri, 08 May 2015 21:09:38 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong went 3-for-5 with a home run, a run scored and three RBIs in an 8-5 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates Friday, May 8, and he has 13 hits in his last 26 at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: Wong ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has raised his average from .272 to .340 over his past six games, and he is one of the best options at second base at FantasyScore right now.

Cardinals | Kolten Wong back in two-hole

Fri, 08 May 2015 14:09:34 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong is hitting second in the batting order against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Friday, May 8.

Fantasy Tip: This is directly related to Matt Carpenter being out of the lineup for the second straight day. Expect Wong ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) to drop back down in the lineup when Carpenter returns. Wong hit surprisingly well against lefties in 2014, going 23-for-73 (.315) against them, so he shouldn't entirely be ruled out tonight at FantasyScore against Liriano. However, it could be tough for him to return value.
