Cardinals | Handful of Cardinals resting in Game 2

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 14:42:52 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Aledmys Diaz, C Yadier Molina and OFs Randal Grichuk and Matt Holliday are all out of the starting lineup in Game 2 against the San Diego Padres Wednesday, July 20. SS Greg Garcia is starting at the 6 and hitting leadoff, OF Tommy Pham is starting in center field and hitting fifth, OF Jeremy Hazelbaker is in left field and batting sixth and C Alberto Rosario is doing the catching and batting eighth against Padres SP Paul Clemens.

Fantasy Tip: Against Clemens, who is making his first start of the year, all Cardinals hitters are worth considering as value picks in DFS action. However, the replacements are more of deep sleepers to help you save salary cap space if you're feeling bold. Rosario should probably still be ignored hitting down in the order.

Cardinals | St. Louis resting three regulars

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 10:17:18 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong, 1B Matt Adams and C Yadier Molina are not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Adam Conley Sunday, July 17. OF Matt Holliday will start at first base, while OF Randal Grichuk will start in left field. OF Tommy Pham will start in center field and is batting first. 2B Jedd Gyorko will start at second base and is batting seventh. C Alberto Rosario will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Pham is hitting 6-for-13 with two home runs and four RBI over the last seven days and is an attractive option for fantasy owners. Gyorko is hitting .350 with three RBI this month and could be used in daily leagues. Rosario has gone 2-for-4 since being recalled, but owners should be able to find better options.

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 10:31:27 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina is not in the starting lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Junior Guerra Sunday, July 10. C Alberto Rosario will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Rosario was recently called up from the minor leagues and is not a strong fantasy option at this point.

Cardinals | Two Cardinals starters on the bench

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 13:48:11 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Brandon Moss and C Yadier Molina are not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Steven Brault Tuesday, July 5. 2B Jedd Gyorko will start at first base and is batting sixth, while C Brayan Pena will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko has been a bit inconsistent at the plate over the last few weeks and probably should be avoided in most mixed leagues. Pena was recently activated from the disabled list and has gone hitless in his four at-bats. Owners should see him play in a few more games before using him in their lineups.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina receives day off

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 15:08:22 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina (rest) is not in the lineup Thursday, June 30, versus the Kansas City Royals. C Brayan Pena gets the start behind the plate in his place and will hit seventh against SP Chris R. Young.

Fantasy Tip: It's just a day off for Molina, who should return to the batting order on Friday. The backup veteran Pena will get some rare playing time as a result, but isn't really worth much of a look in daily games for this evening.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina receives day off

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 12:24:57 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP James Paxton Sunday, June 26. C Eric Fryer will start at catcher and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Fryer is hitting .394 in his limited playing time but has received only eight at-bats this month. Owners in most leagues should be able to find better options to use in their lineups.

Cardinals | Trevor Rosenthal holds on for 13th save

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 22:37:56 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals RP Trevor Rosenthal made things interesting yet again on Monday, June 20 - giving up a leadoff double to Chicago Cubs OF Albert Almora Jr., hitting pinch-hitter Chris Coghlan with a pitch and allowing a single to 2B Ben Zobrist - but forced a game-ending infield popup for the final out after C Yadier Molina made a stellar defensive play to retire Almora at third for the second out.

Fantasy Tip: Manager Mike Matheny continues to stand by his man, but Rosenthal isn't making it easy. The 26-year-old closer has only three clean outings this month and, as a result, a 12.00 ERA and 2.67 WHIP in nine June appearances. He also has a HBP each of his last two games as well. A closer change doesn't appear imminent yet based on Matheny's postgame comments, but owners could make a play for Kevin Siegrist if they have room on their roster to do so.

Cardinals | Matt Adams, Yadier Molina out

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 10:29:52 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams and C Yadier Molina are not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez Sunday, June 19. OF Brandon Moss will start at first base and is batting sixth, while C Eric Fryer will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Moss has at least one hit in seven of his last eight games and has five multi-hit games during that span. He should be a solid starting candidate in most fantasy leagues. Fryer is hitting .414 in limited playing time this season, but owners may be able to find better options to use.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina sitting vs. Pirates

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 14:09:00 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 10. C Eric Fryer is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Molina is a viable starting catcher with 22 runs, 22 RBI and a .271/.348/.362 slash line, but don't expect much power, as he has just 12 bombs since the beginning of the 2014 season. Fryer is 11-for-26 this season and could be a contrarian flier in daily contests, albeit it a risky one facing Cole Friday.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina slumping

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 10:50:58 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina is stuck in a 4-for-45 slump entering the game Wednesday, June 1, and he has started 49 of the team's first 54 games. Molina could be rested more once C Brayan Pena (knee) returns in a couple of weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Molina is still hitting .271 with a homer and 19 RBI and remains one of the better fantasy starting catchers to own despite his recent slump. Ride it out and wait for Molina to find his groove at the plate again.
