St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (groin) is likely to come off the disabled list to face the Cincinnati Reds Tuesday, July 28. SP Tim Cooney was optioned to Class AAA Memphis to clear a rotation spot for him.
Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) was pitching brilliantly and is 4-1 with a 3.22 ERA against the Reds since 2012. He's at a good price to be an SP2 on FantasyScore.

St. Louis Cardinals SP Tim Cooney will start against the Pittsburgh Pirates Sunday, July 12.
Fantasy Tip: Cooney ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has a 3.95 ERA in three starts for the Cards this year, and he's striking out 7.9 hitters per nine innings. Against the Bucs, Cooney is one to avoid heading into the All-Star break on FantasyScore.

St. Louis Cardinals SP Tyler Lyons is starting the first game and SP Tim Cooney is starting the second game of the doubleheader against the Chicago Cubs Tuesday, July 7.
Fantasy Tip: Neither pitcher stands as a strong option in the majority of formats, and they should likely be limited to a spot start in just NL-only or cavernous mixed leagues. Chicago has only scored 23 runs over their last 10, though, so there is upside.

St. Louis Cardinals SP Tim Cooney will be brought up from Class AAA Memphis to start against the San Diego Padres Thursday, July 2.
Fantasy Tip: Cooney was not good in his first start and may only be up for one appearance. Avoid him on FantasyScore for now.

St. Louis Cardinals SP Tim Cooney is expected to come up from the minors to start against the San Diego Padres Thursday, July 2. The Cardinals haven't announced their starter yet, though.
Fantasy Tip: This will just be a spot start for Cooney to replace Jaime Garcia (groin), who will be pushed back to sometime early next week. Don't invest anything in Cooney in traditional leagues. At FantasyScore, he'll be very cheap and is intriguing against a Padres squad that is really struggling offensively of late. However, he's still pretty risky and profiles as a deep sleeper for the gambling type.

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.
