Cardinals | Michael Wacha, Carlos Martinez make history

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 00:21:46 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha and SP Carlos Martinez each have at least nine wins through the first 75 games of the season. Martinez (9-3) and Wacha (10-3) are the first duo aged 23 or younger with nine or more wins at this point since Dwight Gooden and Sid Fernandez for the 1986 New York Mets.

Fantasy Tip: The Cardinals were supposed to fold without Adam Wainwright, but Wacha ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) and Martinez ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) are part of the reason this team has a 51-24 record. These two are must-plays in FantasyScore and pretty much every other fantasy format.

Cardinals | Xavier Scruggs continues hot pace

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 00:17:29 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Xavier Scruggs had his ninth hit in five games Sunday, June 28, against the Chicago Cubs. His RBI single was part of a 4-1 victory over the Cubs.

Fantasy Tip: Scruggs ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is supposed to be a bench player, but if he keeps this up it may be Mark Reynolds who heads back to the bench. Because his price is so low and his bat is so hot, Scruggs is a must-play in FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Pitchers on historic tear

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 14:56:19 -0700

Entering Sunday, June 28, the St. Louis Cardinals starting pitchers, led by SP Michael Wacha, had a team ERA of 2.63, which is the lowest through 74 games since the 1972 Baltimore Orioles posted a 2.31 mark.

Fantasy Tip: Pitchers like Wacha ($8,400, 16.8% of cap), Carlos Martinez ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) and Lance Lynn ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) are helping the Cardinals make history. These three are must-starts in FantasyScore formats.

Cardinals | Mark Reynolds not in lineup Sunday

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 14:34:40 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Mark Reynolds is not starting Sunday, June 28, against the Chicago Cubs. 1B Xavier Scruggs is starting in Reynolds' place.

Fantasy Tip: Reynolds ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is 2-for-14 (.143) against Cubs starter Jason Hammel, but Scruggs ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) doesn't have any history against Hammel yet carries a .571 average during the past week. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny may be going for the hot hand here, so roll the dice on Scruggs.

Cardinals | Jason Heyward reaches four times

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 20:38:10 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward went 2-for-3 with two walks and two runs scored in an 8-1 win over the Chicago Cubs Saturday, June 27.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is enjoying a strong month, and whether he has turned or a corner or is simply enjoying a hot streak, he makes a solid mid-priced option at FantasyScore right now.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia pushed back

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 14:49:55 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (groin) won't start Tuesday, June 30, but could pitch Wednesday, July 1. The team could opt to skip his next start altogether.

Fantasy Tip: The team is treating the oft-injured lefty with kid gloves because he has become a vital part to their success. At $7,100 (14.2% of cap), he's a big risk in his next start with the gimpy groin.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday taking BP

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 14:09:07 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday (quadriceps) is taking batting practice Saturday, June 27.

Fantasy Tip: Holly is making steady progress. His original timetable has him missing three more weeks. He might be ahead of schedule from that if he comes out of BP fine.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday hopeful to run next week

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 15:16:38 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday (quadriceps) is expected to test his quadriceps running next week, and the organization is not ruling out a return before the All-Star break.

Fantasy Tip: It appears to be an aggressive timeline, especially with Holliday not even beginning to run until next week. He'll need a rehab assignment, too. Fantasy owners shouldn't count on any returns from Holliday until late July. Continue to stash him in all formats.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday not running

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 09:00:00 -0700

Updating a previous report, St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday (quadriceps) has ramped up his baseball activities but isn't ready to return to game action, as he hasn't even progressed to the point where he can test his leg by running. He has hit off a tee and played catch and said his quadriceps was getting "stronger" and "better." Holliday is getting closer, but there is no clear timetable for a return.

Fantasy Tip: Holliday needs to remain stashed in a DL slot in all leagues. Be patient, as he can still be effective for your team in the second half. Randal Grichuk ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has been effective for fantasy owners in all leagues, and his mix of speed and power plays nicely at FantasyScore, too, for a modest price.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday starts activities

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 06:01:16 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday (quadriceps) has begun throwing and hitting off a tee this week. Holliday has received acupuncture as part of his treatment, and he has been able to strengthen the leg.

Fantasy Tip: He's still three or four weeks away from a return. Keep him stashed in all formats. Randal Grichuk ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has come alive in Holly's absence. He has a .348-3-5 line the last week and is a mid-to-low outfield option on FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia on track

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 20:55:57 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (groin) is on track to make his next scheduled start after leaving his start Wednesday, June 24, with a cramp in his groin.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) owns a stout 1.69 ERA, and while modest strikeout totals cap his upside, he is still well worth his price tag at FantasyScore right now.

Cardinals | Lance Lynn returns with a bang

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 20:22:39 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Lance Lynn (forearm) came off the disabled list and allowed no runs on two hits over six innings in a win over the Miami Marlins Thursday, June 25.

Fantasy Tip: Lynn ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) showed signs of rust with four walks, but he lowered his ERA to 2.84 on the year. Feel free to use him at FantasyScore going forward whenever he has a solid matchup.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina in extended hot streak

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 13:20:25 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina has a .331 batting average (52-for-157) through 43 games dating back to Tuesday, May 5.

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately, Molina's ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) solid hitting hasn't translated to his counting stats, as he has just 15 runs, two home runs and 14 RBI during the stretch. He does have six runs, two home runs and four RBI during his current nine-game hitting streak, though. Molina is an excellent mid-range catcher in the majority of seasonal leagues, and he is currently an excellent budget play for FantasyScore contests.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia left with injury

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 05:41:05 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (groin) left the game Wednesday, June 24, with a cramp in his groin while running the bases. Garcia said he'd be fine for his next start.

Fantasy Tip: Hopefully for the resurgent Garcia ($7,100, 14.2% of cap), it was just a hydration issue in the Miami heat. Keep an eye on his status because Garcia is pitching like a stud right now.

Cardinals | Carlos Martinez feeling fine

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 22:09:43 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez (shoulder) felt good Wednesday, June 24, just one day after being hit on the pitching shoulder with a fastball while batting Tuesday, June 23. "It looked bad at the time," manager Mike Matheny said.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($7,200; or 14.4% of cap) should be fine for his next scheduled start, so FantasyScore owners will want to use him. He is 5-1 with a 1.33 ERA over his past seven starts.
