Cardinals | Matt Adams, Kolten Wong out Friday

Fri, 06 May 2016 11:45:29 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams (knee) and 2B Kolten Wong are out of the lineup Friday, May 6. 1B Brandon Moss is hitting cleanup, and 2B Jedd Gyorko is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Adams banged his knee yesterday, but he probably wouldn't start against left-hander Francisco Liriano anyway. Moss has actually hit lefties this year at a .357 clip in 14 at-bats. He hit a monstrous home run yesterday, and he's a midrange option in DFS. Gyorko hit lefties fairly well the last three years, and he's a speculative low-end start today.

Cardinals | Kolten Wong turning a corner?

Thu, 05 May 2016 12:17:59 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong had his first extra-base hit Monday, May 2, a solo home run in his 60th at-bat of the season. He has shown a more disciplined approach since Monday, working two walks the last two games. "Kolten's at-bats the last few games that he's been in look significantly better," manager Mike Matheny said. "He looks like he's in a good place. We just have to try and keep building on that."

Fantasy Tip: Wong has been a huge disappointment this year, slashing .226/.315/.274 with the one home run and four RBI. He missed a decent stretch of time with an illness, and that hasn't helped him lock in at the plate. Not to mention he has lost playing time against lefties to Jedd Gyorko. There's a chance he's been dropped in mixed leagues. There's no guarantee he'll turn things around or play every day, but if he does, look to acquire him immediately.

Cardinals | Kolten Wong not in the lineup

Wed, 04 May 2016 14:53:09 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong is not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan Wednesday, May 4. 2B Jedd Gyorko will start at second base and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko has only two hits in his last six games and may not be the best starting candidate for owners in daily fantasy leagues.

Cardinals | Kolten Wong back in the lineup

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 09:04:25 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong (illness) is in the starting lineup against the Washington Nationals SP Joe Ross Saturday, April 30, and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Wong has not been in the starting lineup over the last six games because of an illness but was used later in games. He is batting only .216 with two RBI this season and may not be the best option for some fantasy owners.

Cardinals | Kolten Wong remains sidelined

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 14:42:11 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong (illness) remains out of the starting lineup Friday, April 29. 2B Jedd Gyorko is starting at second base and batting sixth against Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg.

Fantasy Tip: Wong has to be one of the biggest fantasy disappointments in the early going. He has just 11 hits in 51 at-bats (.216) and hasn't started in almost a full week. If you haven't already, you need to make alternate plans at second base, and it's not out of the question to dump him in shallow leagues. Gyorko has pop but fares much better against lefties. He does have a homer in nine career at-bats against Stras, but he's more of a sleeper pick tonight in daily contests.

Cardinals | Kolten Wong remains out of the lineup

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 14:41:56 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong (illness) is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 28. 2B Jedd Gyorko is starting at second base and batting seventh against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Wong hasn't registered an extra-base hit yet and has just two RBI through his first 58 plate appearances, and he is quickly becoming one of the bigger early-season busts, especially with the rest of the lineup hitting well. Gyorko is a viable flier in daily contests Thursday, but he has historically fared much better against southpaws and owns an underwhelming . 237/.279/.399 slash line against right-handed pitchers dating back to the beginning of 2015.

Cardinals | Kolten Wong remains out

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 14:42:36 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong (illness) is not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin Wednesday, April 27. 2B Jedd Gyorko will start at second base and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko will receive his fourth straight start at second base and should keep the job until Wong returns. He has gone 6-for-19 with two home runs and four RBI over the last seven days and could be an attractive option in daily fantasy leagues.

Cardinals | Kolten Wong quarantined

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 17:37:47 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong (illness) is still "quite ill." He's at the ballpark but has been quarantined from teammates Tuesday, April 26.

Fantasy Tip: This isn't a good sign for Wong, who has struggled out of the gate with a .204/.281/.204 line to go along with zero home runs and just two RBI in 49 at-bats. It sounds like this could be something that sidelines him at least a few more days, if not more, so owners should be scrambling to scoop up another option at second base. Even when he's healthy again, Wong might lose some playing time based on his performance thus far.

Cardinals | No Kolten Wong again Tuesday

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 14:46:19 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong remains out of the starting lineup again Tuesday, April 26. 2B Jedd Gyorko is at the keystone and is hitting seventh against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Shelby Miller.

Fantasy Tip: That's three straight games Wong has been on the bench against right-handers, and it's certainly concerning to his owners after he has started hitting only .204 (10-for-49) with no homers and just two RBI. Gyorko could continue to see more starts at Wong's expense, making it understandable to cut Wong in shallow mixed leagues if better options are available.

Cardinals | Matt Adams, Kolten Wong sitting

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 15:26:21 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams and 2B Kolten Wong are not in the starting lineup Monday, April 25. 1B Brandon Moss is at first base and is hitting cleanup, while 2B Jedd Gyorko is at the keystone and is batting seventh against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke.

Fantasy Tip: Moss could be a sneaky target in daily games as a sleeper against Greinke. Moss has a home run in seven at-bats against Greinke in his career. Gyorko had a big game against his old team Sunday and could be stealing more playing time away from the struggling Wong, mainly against left-handers. Despite a strong game yesterday, Gyorko is a risky daily pick against Greinke, who he has just five hits off of in 17 plate appearances.
