St. Louis Cardinals RP Carlos Villanueva is in the discussion for a start next week when the spot taken by SP Tim Cooney comes around.
Fantasy Tip: Cooney was lit up in his major league debut and is probably headed back to Triple-A Memphis. Villanueva could be awarded a start after bailing the team out a couple of times in long relief. The team could also turn to Tyler Lyons. Villanueva has been pretty shaky in a starting role the last couple of years, but he has a 0.96 ERA and a 0.54 WHIP in 9 1/3 innings thus far. He could be a matchup play on FantasyScore.

St. Louis Cardinals SP Tim Cooney will start Thursday, April 30, to take the place of SP Adam Wainwright (Achilles') for now.
Fantasy Tip: This is likely a one-time start, but it could turn into something more based on how things go. For now, steer clear of Cooney until he has established some value.

St. Louis Cardinals SP Tim Cooney is an option to replace SP Adam Wainwright (Achilles') in the starting rotation.
Fantasy Tip: Cooney has a 3.63 ERA at Triple-A, but he's not on the 40-man roster. Tyler Lyons and Marco Gonzales (pectoral) are probably ahead of him in the pecking order once Gonzales returns. Cooney would be an NL-only option and a very deep flyer on FantasyScore.
