St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams (quadriceps) felt tightness in his left quadriceps running the bases over the weekend and returned to St. Louis for treatment and rehabilitation. Adams was rehabbing a torn right quadriceps when he felt the other leg tighten up.
Fantasy Tip: The setback could seal his fantasy value for this year. He was slated for a mid-Sept. return, but the setback surely puts a return before the final few days of the season in jeopardy.

Fantasy Tip: He should be rested and ready to close if a save chance presents itself against the Washington Nationals. Get him in your lineups.

Fantasy Tip: This is a good development for Piscotty ($4,000, 8.0% of cap), who showed signs of struggle when he was promoted from Class AAA. He has really come on strong and looks like, barring injury or slump, he could be with St. Louis for a long time to come.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has exploded after a weak month of April. He is over .300 for the third month in a row and has turned into a strong FantasyScore play. With all of the outfield injuries the Cardinals have incurred, Heyward needs to stay healthy.

Fantasy Tip: Moss ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is showing signs of warming up after a lackluster start at the plate in St. Louis. He's hitting .222 in August but .278 within the past week. As long as the bat is heating up and the FantasyScore price remains low, Moss may be a decent play. Of note: He has hits in his last four games.

St. Louis Cardinals SP Lance Lynn (ankle) is expected to make his next scheduled start after suffering a mild right ankle sprain in his start against the San Francisco Giants Saturday, Aug. 29. He had limited swelling around the ankle and was able to move around the clubhouse without much difficulty following the game, although the ankle was still tender.
Fantasy Tip: Lynn ($7,800, 15.6% of cap) is tentatively scheduled to make his next start against the Pittsburgh Pirates Friday, Sept. 4. He tossed seven scoreless innings before exiting Saturday, allowing just six hits and two walks while striking out two and picking up the victory. FantasyScore owners may want to avoid using him in his next outing just to be on the safe side.

St. Louis Cardinals 1B/OF Mark Reynolds will bat sixth and play first base against San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston Sunday, Aug. 30. 1B/OF Brandon Moss, who played first base Saturday, Aug. 29, will start in left field and bat seventh Sunday.
Fantasy Tip: Reynolds ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is 7-for-20 at the plate over the last seven days, making him worthy of FantasyScore consideration if you want an inexpensive option at first base this afternoon. On the other hand, Moss ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is only batting .216 this month and should be avoided.
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 11:30:13 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Remove Peralta ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) from all fantasy lineups. Garcia ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is hitting just .133 in 15 at-bats this month and is not a great FantasyScore option.
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 11:20:06 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Piscotty ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is 12-for-24 with two home runs and 10 RBIs over the past week and should continue to be used in FantasyScore lineups as long as his hot hitting continues.
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 16:20:10 -0700
Fantasy Tip: There is a chance Lynn ($7,800, 15.6% of cap) could be held out of his next start, so owners should look for an update on his status over the next few days. Lynn is a solid starting option against most opponents when healthy.
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 11:17:49 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Heyward ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is batting .304 over the past week and is 4-for-11 with a double and a home run in his career against Vogelsong, making him a solid FantasyScore option this afternoon.
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 11:04:51 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Moss ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is batting just .208 this month and is hitless in four career at-bats versus Vogelsong. Better first base options are available in FantasyScore this afternoon.

St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha allowed four unearned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out six batters during the Cardinals' 5-4 loss to the San Francisco Giants Friday, Aug. 28. Wacha did not factor into the decision.
Fantasy Tip: Wacha's ($7,600, 15.2% of cap) ERA is down to 2.69 for the season, and he has a 1.40 ERA over his past seven starts with 40 strikeouts over 45 innings. It could be suggested that there is risk with Wacha's workload far exceeding his previous career high of 107 innings, but at this point, he appears absolutely fine. Continue to view him as a fringe No. 1 starter in all mixed leagues, and he is likely underpriced at FanasyScore.
Fri, 28 Aug 2015 09:34:31 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Jay ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) would likely see the bulk of the playing time in center upon returning. Keep an eye on him for NL-only usage and for a low-end FantasyScore flyer.

St. Louis Cardinals OF Stephen Piscotty is not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa Thursday, Aug. 27. OF Brandon Moss will start in left field and is batting sixth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Piscotty ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return soon. Moss ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is hitting only .190 with one RBI this month and probably is not a great starting option.
