Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta injures thumb, return delayed

Sun, 29 May 2016 13:25:21 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta (thumb) will have his return to active duty delayed. Peralta cut his right thumb while opening a box Saturday, May 28, and will be delayed in his return from an injury to his other thumb as a result. Peralta, on a rehab assignment with Class AA Springfield, had to get three stitches and will not play for three or four days, manager Mike Matheny said.

Fantasy Tip: There is no answer to the question about why Peralta didn't have someone else open the box. Whatever the case, it looks like Peralta will be delayed a little bit longer. This is good news for Aledmys Diaz owners, who will get his services in full for several more days (and likely after Peralta returns, as it is). Peralta also has 3B eligibility coming his way, so keep him stashed in all but the shallowest of leagues and await his return.

Cardinals | Kolten Wong unlikely to miss much time

Sat, 26 Mar 2016 15:55:34 -0700

Updating a previous story, St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong (knee) might be too sore to play Sunday, March 27, according to manager Mike Matheny, who added that he did not expect Wong to miss much additional time. Wong left a Grapefruit League game against the Washington Nationals on Saturday, March 26, with a left knee contusion.

Fantasy Tip: There doesn’t seem to be much concern over this injury, so continue to view Wong a mid-range option at second base.

Cardinals | Adam Wainwright working on changeups

Mon, 15 Feb 2016 14:03:20 -0800

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright had manager Mike Matheny stand in as a hitter during a light bullpen session Monday, Feb. 15. Wainwright sought feedback on the two changeups he's been working on: a four-seam and two-seam grip.

Fantasy Tip: Wainwright missed most of 2015 with a ruptured Achilles' tendon, but he seemed to be no worse for wear upon his return last September, as he allowed two earned runs in six relief appearances spanning 8 1/3 innings (including postseason). The otherwise durable three-time All-Star should once again serve as the ace for a strong St. Louis rotation and could easily return to being an elite fantasy option if he stays healthy this season.
