From -- thru  --


Cardinals | Brandon Moss starting vs. Arizona

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 14:29:42 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B/OF Brandon Moss is starting in right field and batting fourth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa Thursday, April 28. OFs Randal Grichuk and Jeremy Hazelbaker are not in the starting lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Moss lands in a juicy matchup against De La Rosa. The hurler has allowed a .559 slugging percentage to left-handed batters dating back to the beginning of last season, and Moss has 15 runs, five home runs and 14 RBI through his past 17 games. Avoid Grichuk and Hazelbaker where you can Thursday.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday not playing

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 14:41:59 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday (leg) is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 26. OF Jeremy Hazelbaker is starting in left field and is hitting leadoff against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Shelby Miller.

Fantasy Tip: Given Holliday's age and lower-body injury that plagued him last year, this is a bit concerning to his fantasy owners. Check back for updates on when he might return to the lineup. Hazelbaker (.308/.333/.731 with five homers and 13 RBI) has done nothing but hit when in the Red Birds' lineup. A matchup against Miller, who has been off mechanically, is a perfect time to take advantage of his hot start.

Cardinals | St. Louis resting several starters

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 13:10:01 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday, 1B Matt Adams and 2B Kolten Wong are not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres SP Colin Rea Sunday, April 24. OF Brandon Moss will start at first base and is batting third in the lineup. OF Jeremy Hazelbaker will start in left field and is batting sixth, while 2B Jedd Gyorko will start at second base and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Moss and Hazelbaker have struggled at the plate recently but could still be decent options in daily fantasy leagues because of his success earlier in the month. Gyorko is hitting .333 with two home runs and four RBI over the last seven days and could also be an attractive starting option.

Cardinals | Jeremy Hazelbaker homers

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 04:34:43 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jeremy Hazelbaker hit his fourth home run of the season in a pinch-hit appearance Saturday, April 23. St. Louis beat the San Diego Padres, 11-2.

Fantasy Tip: Hazelbaker is doing quite well, but his problem appears to be pinch-hitting. In short, he does a lot of damage as one and doesn't see a lot of regular playing time. He broke an 0-for-17 slump with this performance. The best you can do is keep an eye on whether or not he starts and act accordingly. He is a sleeper candidate for points as a starter in fantasy.

Cardinals | Matt Adams, Ruben Tejada in lineup

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 15:58:44 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams and SS Ruben Tejada are in the starting lineup facing San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner Friday, April 22. Adams is hitting cleanup and Tejada is hitting eighth. OF Jeremy Hazelbaker and SS Aledmys Diaz are the odd-men out.

Fantasy Tip: After hot starts, Hazelbaker and Diaz could see spotty playing time moving forward unless an injury opens up more time. Tejada is more of a defensive option and should only be owned in deep NL-only leagues. Adams has five hits (one homer and two doubles) in his last six games and figures to platoon at first with Matt Holliday and Brandon Moss. Against Cashner this evening, Adams is certainly worth investing in in daily leagues.

Cardinals | Matt Adams draws another start

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 08:12:36 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams is hitting cleanup Wednesday, April 20, for the second straight day. OF/1B Brandon Moss and OF Jeremy Hazelbaker are out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: "Big City" has four hits in his last 10 at-bats, including a homer, and he's a decent start against Kyle Hendricks at the right price.

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 | Jeremy Hazelbaker cools down

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 23:30:16 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jeremy Hazelbaker went hitless in four at-bats with a strikeout Monday, April 18, against the Chicago Cubs to drop his batting average to .351.

Fantasy Tip: Hazelbaker is now hitless in 10 at-bats over his past four games after hitting safely in eight straight from April 5 to 14. It isn't time for fantasy owners to bail on him just yet, but he'll need to start hitting again soon.

Cardinals | Randal Grichuk sitting Monday

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 11:40:14 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Randal Grichuk is not in the starting lineup Monday, April 18. OF Jeremy Hazelbaker is starting in center field and is batting second against Chicago Cubs SP John Lackey.

Fantasy Tip: Hazelbaker has been one of the big surprises of this early season, hitting .394 (13-for-33) with three home runs, two stolen bases and seven RBI. He won't keep this pace up but should continue to be an attractive daily pick while he's hot.

Cardinals | St. Louis resting five players

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 10:56:18 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jeremy Hazelbaker, OF Matt Holliday, C Yadier Molina, 2B Kolten Wong and SS Aledmys Diaz are not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Jon Moscot Sunday, April 17. 1B Brandon Moss is starting in left field and is batting second. 1B Matt Adams is starting at first base and is batting fifth. 2B Jedd Gyorko is starting at second base and is batting sixth. SS Greg Garcia is starting at shortstop and is batting seventh, while C Eric Fryer starting at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Fryer and Garcia have played well early this season but probably should not be options in most leagues. Moss, Adams and Gyorko could be used in daily fantasy leagues.
