St. Louis Cardinals OF Oscar Taveras is starting in center field Wednesday, July 9, against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Fantasy Tip: This is what fantasy owners are hoping happens more frequently going forward. Allen Craig, Matt Adams, Matt Holliday and Taveras are all in the lineup. Manager Mike Matheny said he would give Taveras time in center field depending on the stadium. Today's start comes at home, so Taveras could begin getting additional starts in center field if he plays well defensively. NL-only owners will want to monitor this situation closely, as Jon Jay and Peter Bourjos could lose even more playing time.

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday (rest) is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, July 1. OF Oscar Taveras is playing right field, and OF Allen Craig is playing left field.
Fantasy Tip: Expect Mike Matheny to get creative with his lineups with the addition of Taveras to the mix. Owners will need to monitor the Cardinals lineup daily. Matt Adams will also be affected and Taveras could even see time in center field. Expect Taveras to see enough at-bats to be a worthy add in all formats. Similarly, the routine days off shouldn't amount to enough missed playing time to seriously hurt any of the Cardinals' top players.

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong (shoulder) is out of the lineup Wednesday, June 4, and OF Matt Holliday is serving as the designated hitter. Holliday is 12-for-52 (.231) with two home runs in his career as a DH. Wong bruised his left shoulder trying to make a diving play Tuesday, June 3. 2B Mark Ellis is starting at the keystone.
Fantasy Tip: Wong's injury doesn't seem serious, so there is a good chance he's back in the starting lineup in a day or two.
