Cardinals | Jason Heyward not in the lineup

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 17:02:18 -0700

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.

Cardinals | Mark Reynolds starting at 1B

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 16:55:36 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Mark Reynolds (hand) is starting at first base against Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake Tuesday, July 28, and is batting sixth in the lineup.

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.

Cardinals | Randal Grichuk expected back soon

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 16:05:31 -0700

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.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia activated

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 10:47:48 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (groin) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, July 28, and the Cardinals optioned RP Sam Tuivailala to Class AAA Memphis in a corresponding move.

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.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina leaves early

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 20:42:14 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina (illness) left the game Monday, July 27, against the Cincinnati Reds as the team said he was "not feeling well."

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.

Cardinals | No Randal Grichuk Monday

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 14:54:51 -0700

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.

Cardinals | Mark Reynolds sitting

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 14:50:55 -0700

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.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday resting

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 14:46:25 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 27. OF Stephen Piscotty is starting in left field and hitting sixth against Cincinnati Reds SP Raisel Iglesias.

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.

Cardinals | Randal Grichuk has MRI

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 14:10:10 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Randal Grichuk (groin) underwent an MRI exam Monday, July 27, that showed no serious concerns with his groin injury. Grichuk will likely be available to pinch hit Monday.

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.

Cardinals | Adam Lind drawing Cards' interest

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 06:38:15 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Adam Lind has drawn interest from the St. Louis Cardinals, and the two teams have had discussions.

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.

Cardinals | Randal Grichuk injured

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 18:52:06 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Randal Grichuk (groin) exited in the sixth inning against the Atlanta Braves with a minor groin injury, according to manager Mike Matheny.

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.

Cardinals | Mark Reynolds out of the lineup

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 11:09:58 -0700

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.

Cardinals | Tony Cruz catching Sunday

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 11:07:49 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina is not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler Sunday, July 26. Tony Cruz will start behind the plate and bat seventh.

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.

Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta will not start

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 11:06:26 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta is not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler Sunday, July 26. SS Pete Kozma will start at shortstop and is batting eighth.

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.

Cardinals | Randy Choate notches save

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 19:53:03 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals RP Randy Choate recorded the final two outs of a 1-0 win over the Atlanta Braves Saturday, July 25, to notch his first save of the season.

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.
