Cardinals | Jason Heyward not starting

Sat, 23 May 2015 13:52:11 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward is not in the starting lineup Saturday, May 23, against the Kansas City Royals. OFs Matt Holliday, Randal Grichuk and Peter Bourjos will start with 1B Mark Reynolds serving as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Reynolds ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has three home runs on the season, and he has the ability to offer some occasional power. With a 33.7% strikeout rate and hitting out of the eighth spot in the batting order, Reynolds doesn't need much consideration on FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday sitting vs. Mets

Thu, 21 May 2015 08:07:08 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday is not in the starting lineup against the New York Mets Thursday, May 21. 1B Mark Reynolds is batting seventh and playing left field Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Holliday ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday, it is likely nothing more than a routine day off on getaway day. Reynolds ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has hit a hot streak over the past 15 games, as he sports a .327/.364/.500 slash line with seven runs, two home runs and eight RBI. FantasyScore players should view him as an upside source of cap relief, albeit a somewhat risky one against stingy starting pitcher Jacob deGrom.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday produces at the plate

Wed, 20 May 2015 20:06:45 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday went 3-for-4 with one RBI against the New York Mets Wednesday, May 20.

Fantasy Tip: Holliday ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) has seen his batting average drop in May but is still hitting .328 and picked up an RBI in each of his last two games. Owners on FantasyScore could consider Holliday as a solid starting option most nights.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday continues to reach base

Thu, 14 May 2015 14:17:34 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday has reached base safely in 32 straight games, which is the longest streak in the majors this year and third longest to start a season in Cardinals history.

Fantasy Tip: Holliday ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) went 0-for-3 with a walk in the victory Thursday afternoon after being hit hard on his elbow the night before. It's a good sign for his owners that he was back in there in a day game after a night tilt, but his arm is worth watching. Holliday has been an excellent FantasyScore option on a daily basis this year.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday a late insertion

Thu, 14 May 2015 08:55:02 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday (elbow) was a late insertion to the lineup Thursday, May 14, at designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Holly ($5,000, 10.0% of your cap) had trouble extending his lead arm yesterday. It's possible that the swelling was reduced in order to allow him to finish his swing. He's a risky option on FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta with day off

Thu, 14 May 2015 08:49:16 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta was a late scratch from the lineup Thursday, May 14, for OF Matt Holliday's (elbow) return.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta was slated to DH, but he is being given the day off instead. Pete Kozma ($1,600, 3.2% of your cap) is in at shortstop, but he has no FantasyScore appeal.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday update

Thu, 14 May 2015 06:18:29 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday (elbow) had scans reveal a deep left elbow contusion. He is listed as day-to-day, but he had trouble extending his arm in order to finish his swing.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Holliday will miss a day or two, and they'll need to call up an outfielder for their thin bench. OF Randal Grichuk (back) is close to returning from a back injury and could fit in the mix immediately. At $1,900 (3.8% of your cap), he's a matchup play at a cheap price on FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday leaves game early

Wed, 13 May 2015 16:40:22 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday (elbow) left the game early after being hit in the left elbow by a pitch Wednesday, May 13. He was replaced by SS Peter Kozma in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Keep an eye on Holliday's ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) status this evening and heading into tomorrow. The Red Birds are a little short-handed in the outfield with Jon Jay (hand, wrist) also hurt right now, so it's unclear who would benefit the most if Holliday had to miss time.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday reaches base again

Tue, 12 May 2015 20:03:01 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday had an RBI single in the fifth inning Tuesday, May 12, against the Cleveland Indians, and he added a three-run home run in the eighth inning. Holliday has reached base safely in each of his 30 games this season.

Fantasy Tip: Holliday will give you something almost every night, and it's nice to see his power numbers coming around somewhat. At $5,000 (or 10.0% of cap) he is a solid FantasyScore option due to his consistency.
