Dropping off: Christian Arroyo (41st), J.J. Hardy (46th), Nick Ahmed (48th)

 

  • With Eric Sogard starting to slump some and battling a sore ankle, Jonathan Villar has started five of the last six games. Apart from a two-homer game in a rout of the Reds, he hasn’t done well yet since coming off the disabled list, but I can’t see dropping him out of the top 10 here if he’s going to play fairly regularly.

 

  • I don’t expect that the Cardinals will be as prompt in bringing Aledmys Diaz back to the majors as they were with Randal Grichuk. Diaz hadn’t hit very well at any point this year, but he also didn’t seem completely hapless in hitting .260/.293/.396. Defense was the bigger issue there. I’m not much of a believer in Paul DeJong’s bat, but as long as he remains the steadier defender, I imagine the Cardinals will stick with him.
