Cardinals | St. Louis resting three players

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 17:01:22 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Stephen Piscotty, 1B Matt Adams and C Yadier Molina are not in the starting lineup for the second game of a doubleheader against the New York Mets Tuesday, July 26. 1B Jedd Gyorko will start at first base, while 3B Greg Garcia will start at third base and is batting first against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon. OF Randal Grichuk will start in right field, while OF Tommy Pham will start in center field and is batting fifth. C Alberto Rosario will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Pham may be the most attractive option among the three new players in the starting lineup, but none of the players should be considered in most mixed fantasy leagues.

Cardinals | Wholesale changes for Cards

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 14:23:47 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Greg Garcia is leading off Saturday, July 23, OF Jeremy Hazelbaker is hitting sixth and C Alberto Rosario hits eighth. 2B Kolten Wong, OF Matt Holliday and C Yadier Molina are out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia has cooled a bit, but he's still hitting .314. He has upside at leadoff against Kenta Maeda. Hazelbaker and Rosario don't offer much for DFS purposes.

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.
