St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward is not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake Tuesday, July 28. OF Peter Bourjos is starting in center field and is batting eighth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Heyward ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the next game or two. Bourjos ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is hitting only .175 this month and is not a strong option on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Reynolds ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is hitting only .206 this month but does have four home runs and nine RBI during that span. Owners may be able to find better options to use on FantasyScore.

St. Louis Cardinals OF Randal Grichuk (groin) is not expected to miss a lot of time because of the groin injury he suffered during the game Sunday, July 26. Grichuk underwent an MRI Monday, July 27, which did not reveal any problems, but another doctor was scheduled to look over the MRI.
Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation to see when Grichuk ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) will be able to return to the lineup. He is hitting .276 with four home runs and 15 RBI this month and should be a solid option when he returns to the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) will make the start against the Cincinnati Reds Tuesday night. He's been a very adequate starter for fantasy owners this year, but sitting him tonight against the Reds might be wise, especially at FantasyScore. Cincy ranks eighth in baseball with a .722 OPS against left-handed pitchers this year.

Fantasy Tip: Molina ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can play a full game to prove he is well. Tony Cruz ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) could draw a start Tuesday if Y-Mo is unavailable.

St. Louis Cardinals OF Randal Grichuk (groin) is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 27. OF Peter Bourjos is starting in center field and hitting eighth against Cincinnati Reds SP Raisel Iglesias.
Fantasy Tip: Bourjos ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has been playing very sparingly lately as a bench option, and he's hitting only .184 (7-for-38) with no home runs and three RBI in July. Bourjos is valuable for his speed, but he hasn't been getting on base enough to make him a viable fantasy option.

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Mark Reynolds (hand) is not in the starting lineup again Monday, July 27. 1B Dan Johnson is starting at first base and is hitting seventh against Cincinnati Reds SP Raisel Iglesias.
Fantasy Tip: Reynolds has a sore left hand after being hit by a pitch over the weekend. Avoid him for now. Johnson ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has just two hits in 14 at-bats for the Cardinals, and he should be avoided on FantasyScore unless you're desperate for some salary cap relief for your daily lineup.
Mon, 27 Jul 2015 14:46:25 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Piscotty ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has four hits in his first 12 at-bats (.333) for the Cardinals after being called up last week. He's mainly a line-drive hitter that is developing a power stroke, and he can also run a little bit. You can do much worse than Piscotty when searching for an under-the-radar value play at outfield.
Mon, 27 Jul 2015 14:10:10 -0700
Fantasy Tip: You'll want to avoid Grichuk ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) on FantasyScore tonight and possibly tomorrow, too. Stephen Piscotty ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) remains in the starting lineup and isn't a bad value target against Cincinnati Reds starter Raisel Iglesias tonight. Piscotty has four hits in his first 12 at-bats for the Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Lind ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) missed the game Sunday with back tightness, but it's not expected to be serious. He would see a nice boost if he landed at fourth or fifth in the Cards' lineup. Check his status for Monday and view him as a midrange option on FantasyScore.
Sun, 26 Jul 2015 18:52:06 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It doesn't sound like the injury is too serious, but check on Grichuk's ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) status in the coming days to make sure he is able to play before using him at FantasyScore.

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Mark Reynolds is not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler Sunday, July 26. 1B Stephen Piscotty will start at first base and is batting sixth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Reynolds ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the near future. Piscotty ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has only gone 2-for-9 since joining the Cardinals and may not be a good option until he produces more at the plate.
Sun, 26 Jul 2015 11:07:49 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cruz ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is batting .200 with three RBIs through 60 at-bats and is not a great catching option in FantasyScore.
Sun, 26 Jul 2015 11:06:26 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Peralta ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and will return to the lineup soon. Kozma ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should not be a starting option on FantasyScore.
Sat, 25 Jul 2015 19:53:03 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Closer Trevor Rosenthal received his second consecutive scheduled day off after appearing in three straight games, and Choate's save chances will remain few and far between.
