Cardinals | Mark Reynolds sitting

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 14:50:55 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Mark Reynolds (hand) is not in the starting lineup again Monday, July 27. 1B Dan Johnson is starting at first base and is hitting seventh against Cincinnati Reds SP Raisel Iglesias.

Fantasy Tip: Reynolds has a sore left hand after being hit by a pitch over the weekend. Avoid him for now. Johnson ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has just two hits in 14 at-bats for the Cardinals, and he should be avoided on FantasyScore unless you're desperate for some salary cap relief for your daily lineup.

Cardinals | Stephen Piscotty scratched

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 13:51:18 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Stephen Piscotty (neck) has a stiff neck and was pulled from the starting lineup Thursday, July 23. 1B Dan Johnson is starting at first base and batting eighth against Kansas City Royals SP Chris Young Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Piscotty ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) from your fantasy lineups Thursday. Johnson ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a desperation flier in all fantasy formats Thursday, and starting him at FantasyScore is risky with all the upside you'll be passing up at first base. Check back for updates on Piscotty's health.

Cardinals | Kolten Wong remains out

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 15:05:58 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong (head) remains out of the lineup Wednesday, July 8. 3B Matt Carpenter sticks at second base, while 1B Mark Reynolds shifts across the diamond to third base, and 1B Dan Johnson is starting at first base and hitting eighth against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel.

Fantasy Tip: Carpenter ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) has cooled off of late at the plate, but he still isn't a bad FantasyScore option, especially against Hammel, who has been much tougher against righties this year. Reynolds ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) and Johnson are ones to avoid.

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 08:05:24 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Adam Lind (foot) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right foot fracture. Toronto recalled 1B Dan Johnson from Triple-A Buffalo and designated RP Bobby Korecky for assignment.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson should be an AL-only asset, at least in a platoon role, and may earn fleeting deep mixed utility. Lind should be out for at least one month.
