Cardinals | Randall Grichuk, Kolten Wong out vs. Mets

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 13:46:36 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Randal Grichuk and 2B Kolten Wong are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 27. Cardinals OF Tommy Pham is starting in center field and is hitting eighth, while 2B Greg Garcia is at the keystone and batting leadoff against Mets SP Logan Verrett Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Grichuk and Wong haven't played since Sunday, July 24. It's a concerning trend, especially for Wong. Grichuk could enter into a semi-platoon and start solely against lefties, which would be bad. But Wong can't beat out Garcia for playing time right now, as Garcia boasts a .451 on-base percentage for the season. Garcia is a potential add in deep mixed leagues, but he's unlikely to sustain his current production, and he offers extremely limited pop.

Cardinals | Randal Grichuk, Kolten Wong sitting

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 11:11:54 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Randal Grichuk and 2B Kolten Wong are not in the starting lineup for Game 1 of the doubleheader against the New York Mets Tuesday, July 26. Cardinals OF Jeremy Hazelbaker is starting in center field and is hitting eighth, while 2B Greg Garcia is at the keystone and batting leadoff against Mets SP Noah Syndergaard Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Grichuk's fantasy stock is on the rise given his .574 slugging percentage through 57 plate appearances since returning from the minors. Wong, meanwhile, continues to struggle and remains a low-end option in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. Garcia has been hitting well (.313/.447/.444 slash line this season), but he and Hazelbaker are risky fantasy options against Syndergaard Tuesday.

Cardinals | Randal Grichuk, Kolten Wong out

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 13:59:32 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Randal Grichuk and 2B Kolten Wong are not in the starting lineup Monday, July 25. OF Jeremy Hazelbaker is starting in center field and is hitting eighth, while 2B Greg Garcia is at the keystone and batting leadoff against New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia's daily value is on the rise hitting leadoff, and he's batted .311 in 90 at-bats this year. However, he has just two homers and 11 RBI and is unlikely to fill up the stat sheet for DFS players, making him a low-end option. Hazelbaker has just two hits in 10 at-bats (.200) since his return from the minors and is an option to avoid against Thor.

Cardinals | Wholesale changes for Cards

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 14:23:47 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Greg Garcia is leading off Saturday, July 23, OF Jeremy Hazelbaker is hitting sixth and C Alberto Rosario hits eighth. 2B Kolten Wong, OF Matt Holliday and C Yadier Molina are out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia has cooled a bit, but he's still hitting .314. He has upside at leadoff against Kenta Maeda. Hazelbaker and Rosario don't offer much for DFS purposes.

Cardinals | No Kolten Wong against Padres

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 14:01:48 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B/OF Kolten Wong is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 21. INF Greg Garcia is starting at second base and batting eighth against San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Wong projects to continue receiving consistent playing time going forward, but that is the only thing keeping him fantasy relevant in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. His .290 slugging percentage is one of the biggest disappointments of the fantasy season. Garcia has a nice matchup against Cashner Thursday, but hitting eighth limits any real upside. Don't fret fading him in daily contests.

Cardinals | Three Cardinals regulars sitting

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 13:48:03 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams, 2B Kolten Wong and 3B Jhonny Peralta are not in the starting lineup Monday, July 18. OF Matt Holliday is at first base and hitting cleanup, 2B Jedd Gyorko is playing the keystone and batting seventh and INF Greg Garcia is at the hot corner and hitting eighth against San Diego Padres SP Christian Friedrich.

Fantasy Tip: Holliday is typically an everyday player and is facing a fine matchup against the lefty, so he is a great addition to all fantasy lineups tonight. Gyorko has power but makes inconsistent contact, while Garcia has a good average .333 in limited at-bats but very little offensive upside. Both Gyorko and Garcia are deeper sleepers for DFS. Adams and Wong are likely being rested against the southpaw.

Cardinals | St. Louis resting three regulars

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 10:17:18 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong, 1B Matt Adams and C Yadier Molina are not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Adam Conley Sunday, July 17. OF Matt Holliday will start at first base, while OF Randal Grichuk will start in left field. OF Tommy Pham will start in center field and is batting first. 2B Jedd Gyorko will start at second base and is batting seventh. C Alberto Rosario will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Pham is hitting 6-for-13 with two home runs and four RBI over the last seven days and is an attractive option for fantasy owners. Gyorko is hitting .350 with three RBI this month and could be used in daily leagues. Rosario has gone 2-for-4 since being recalled, but owners should be able to find better options.

Cardinals | Kolten Wong not starting

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 15:04:20 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong is not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Wei-Yin Chen Friday, July 15. 2B Jedd Gyorko will start at second base and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko should receive most of the starts against left-handed pitchers while Matt Carpenter is sidelined. He is hitting only .219 with two home runs and eight RBI against left-handed pitchers this season and is not a strong fantasy starter.

Cardinals | Two Cardinals sitting out

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 09:25:41 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong and 1B Matt Adams are not in the starting lineups against Milwaukee Brewers SP Chase Anderson Saturday, July 9. 2B Greg Garcia will start at second base and is batting first, while 2B Jedd Gyorko will start at first base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia is hitting .353 with two RBI over the last seven days and could be a sleeper option for some owners in daily fantasy leagues. Gyorko has played better over the past week but is still not a strong fantasy option.

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Matt Carpenter (oblique) and 3B Jhonny Peralta (thumb) are out of the lineup Thursday, July 7, with 3B Greg Garcia hitting leadoff and 2B Kolten Wong hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia is hitting .344 and has low-end upside against Tyler Glasnow in his major league debut. Wong has struggled at the plate all year, and he doesn't have much upside in this spot in the lineup.
