Cardinals | Xavier Scruggs an option at first base?

Fri, 29 May 2015 19:00:15 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Xavier Scruggs could be an option at first base if the team decides to call up a player from Class AAA to fill in for 1B Matt Adams (quadriceps), general manager John Mozeliak said Friday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: Scruggs only has 16 at-bats under his belts in the majors, but he has shown decent power potential at lower levels. If he does end up being called up, he could make an intriguing sleeper at FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Cardinals not rushing Stephen Piscotty

Fri, 29 May 2015 18:53:34 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Stephen Piscotty will not rushed to play first base to fill in for 1B Matt Adams (quadriceps), general manager John Mozeliak said Friday, May 29. "Obviously, he played third base in college and was drafted as a third baseman, so I think the transition for him would be pretty easy," Mozeliak said. "But again, I don't feel like we're desperate for coverage at first. We have plenty of time."

Fantasy Tip: Unless you play in an exceptionally deep NL-only league, it sounds like there is no reason to rush out and add Piscotty in the wake of Adams' injury.

Cardinals | Matt Adams out at least four months

Fri, 29 May 2015 15:14:41 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams (quadriceps) underwent surgery Friday, May 29. The surgeon found a complete tear of the quadriceps muscle, which will prolong the recovery timetable. Adams is expected to miss at least four months.

Fantasy Tip: Until there is a personnel change, Mark Reynolds ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) projects to receive the majority of starts at first base. He is a feast or famine hitter, and should be viewed as a risky FantasyScore play going forward. Adams can be stashed, but it is ill-advised to expect any meaningful production from him in 2015. At best he receives a few at-bats at the end of the season.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday won't play 1B

Fri, 29 May 2015 08:08:12 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday won't shift to first base with 1B Matt Adams (quadriceps) out, according to manager Mike Matheny. "That's a pretty big shift for a guy who's spent his whole career out there and bring him in to the infield," Matheny said. "There's a lot that goes on. It's not like you just throw anybody there. You've got to have some work to make that happen."

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Mark Reynolds ($2,700, 5.4% of your cap) will see the lion's share of time at first for the time being. He has a ton of power but hits at an awful rate. He's a matchup play on FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Matt Adams to undergo surgery

Wed, 27 May 2015 21:07:25 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams (quadriceps) is scheduled to undergo surgery Friday, May 29, to repair his torn quadriceps.

Fantasy Tip: Adams ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) could miss the rest of the season because of his injury. Mark Reynolds ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) likely will see most of the playing time and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore to consider.

Cardinals | Matt Adams could miss season

Wed, 27 May 2015 18:55:15 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams (quadriceps) will miss three to four months with a Grade 2 strain, according to an official team statement Wednesday, May 27. Team officials have said Adams could miss the rest of the season. 1B Mark Reynolds is listed as the next option at first base on the Cardinals' depth chart.

Fantasy Tip: Reynolds ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has been used mostly as a platoon option against right-handed pitchers this season. The Cardinals' are likely to look outside of the organization for Adams' replacement, with Ryan Howard's name among those rumored to be of interest.

Cardinals | Matt Adams facing lengthy absence

Wed, 27 May 2015 14:02:03 -0700

Updating a previous report, St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams (quadriceps) has a severe tear in his quadriceps which could require surgery, and he could miss significant time with the injury.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to check back for updates on the severity of Adams' ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) injury and a recovery and return timeline. In the meantime, and for the duration of Adam's absence, Mark Reynolds ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) projects to receive everyday at-bats. Over the past six seasons, Reynolds has averaged 23 home runs with a .213/.316/.429 slash line and 402 at-bats per season. He has power potential, but it will come with a bad batting average. He is a matchup FantasyScore play.

Cardinals | Matt Adams put on DL

Wed, 27 May 2015 11:58:03 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams (quadriceps) was put on the 15-day disabled list, as expected, Wednesday, May 27. C Edward Easley was recalled from the minors in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: With Adams out for at least two weeks, Mark Reynolds ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is likely to become the starting first baseman. While Reynolds has plenty of power (three home runs, 12 RBI), he's also hitting just .250 (24-for-96). Reynolds is strictly a matchup play at FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Matt Adams suffers injury

Tue, 26 May 2015 19:38:45 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams (quadriceps) left the game early Tuesday, May 26, and has been diagnosed with a strained right quadriceps.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to look for a possible timetable for Adams ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) over the next day or two. Mark Reynolds ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) likely would start at first base if Adams misses some time and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore to consider.

Cardinals | Matt Adams bumped to sixth

Sat, 23 May 2015 14:03:17 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams will hit out of the sixth spot in the batting order Saturday, May 23, against the Kansas City Royals.

Fantasy Tip: Adams ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has gone 0-for-8 in his last two games. Adams can make for a nice option when facing a right-handed pitcher, but due to his cold streak he should be left for GPP tournaments.
