Cardinals | Stephen Piscotty bats cleanup

Thu, 19 May 2016 20:41:03 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Stephen Piscotty hit cleanup for the fourth time this season, going 3-for-4 with two doubles, two RBI and two runs scored in a 13-7 win over the Colorado Rockies Thursday, May 19.

Fantasy Tip: Despite owning one of the better offenses, St. Louis has not had a lot of production from its cleanup hitters. If Piscotty can secure the role, his RBI production should increase substantially.

Cardinals | Cards shake up lineup Thursday

Thu, 19 May 2016 12:03:17 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Aledmys Diaz is hitting in the two-hole against Colorado Rockies SP Jon Gray Thursday, May 19. OF Stephen Piscotty moves to cleanup as a result, and OF Randal Grichuk is pushed down to seventh in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Diaz has been one of the better hitters on the team all season, slashing .376/.403/.648 with six home runs and 20 RBI. The move up the lineup will certainly boost his fantasy value, especially in daily setups. Piscotty has been solid, too (.318-5-23) and remains a fine option in all formats. Grichuk is off to a slow start (.218-5-19), but he's hitting .306 (11-for-36) with a homer and six RBI since May 6. This move could let him relax more and continue turning things around. He's a contrarian play in DFS against Gray.

Cardinals | Three Cards regulars sitting

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 12:11:41 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Brandon Moss, OF Stephen Piscotty and SS Aledmys Diaz are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 19. 1B Matt Adams is at first base and hitting cleanup, OF Jeremy Hazelbaker draws another start in right field and is in the two-hole, and SS Ruben Tejada is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel.

Fantasy Tip: Adams draws and can become an under-the-radar sleeper against a right-hander Tuesday in daily contests. He had all five of his long balls against righties last year. Hazelbaker has cooled off a bit but still has value in all fantasy formats as long as he's playing. Tejada is a low-end shortstop option who will steal playing time away from Diaz after coming off the DL yesterday.

Cardinals | Stephen Piscotty back in lineup

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 11:19:22 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Stephen Piscotty is back in the lineup batting fourth and starting at first base Friday, April 15, against Cincinnati Reds SP Tim Melville.

Fantasy Tip: Piscotty will be getting his first action of the season at first base, thanks to the emergence of Jeremy Hazelbaker in the outfield. The 25-year-old is out to a modest start, batting .281 with one homer and four RBI, but he could be solid tonight for daily lineups. He's registered multi-hit efforts in three of his last four contests, and could get in some good swings against a pitcher making just his second career start.

Cardinals | Stephen Piscotty sitting Thursday

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 08:08:27 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Stephen Piscotty is out of the lineup Thursday, April 14, with OF Jeremy Hazelbaker hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Hazelbaker has made quite a splash in his first couple of weeks in the majors. He's hitting .500 (11-for-22) with a couple homers and a couple of steals. He's a midrange DFS option against Wily Peralta.

Cardinals | Stephen Piscotty not in first base plans

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 13:26:02 -0800

St. Louis Cardinals OF Stephen Piscotty is not expected to play first base this season, according to manager Mike Matheny. "I think his time is best served right now continuing to work in the outfield," Matheny said.

Fantasy Tip: Piscotty posted a .305/.359/.494 slash line through 256 plate appearances with 29 runs, seven home runs and 39 RBI. He is a key piece for the Cards going forward and projects to have a solid season with upside to approach 20 home runs with an excellent slash line. He is a nice piece to round out your virtual outfield in the late rounds of drafts.

Cardinals | Matt Carpenter prefers leadoff spot

Thu, 03 Mar 2016 10:27:10 -0800

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter prefers to stay in the leadoff spot. "I take a lot of pride in setting the tone for, OK, you're getting the St. Louis Cardinals' lineup today and here goes, right now," Carpenter said. The Cardinals struggled to score runs last year, so moving Carpenter down in the order a bit in 2016 has been discussed.

Carpenter's .378 on-base percentage since 2013 in the leadoff spot is the 12th-best in baseball and highest of any leadoff hitter. His .453 slugging percentage is the highest of any full-time leadoff hitter over that span, and his 132 doubles leads the majors since 2013. 2B Kolten Wong and OF Stephen Piscotty are other leadoff options this year.

Fantasy Tip: The Cards are likely to boot Carpenter from the leadoff spot this year. In a better run-producing spot, don't expect another season of close to 30 home runs from the sudden free hacker. He's also making less contact with his altered approach, so some regression is expected. Keep that in mind when drafting him in the early rounds.
