Jeremy Hazelbaker went 3-for-3 with a walk and a run scored, reaching in all four plate appearances, in a win over the Indians on Saturday.
Giving A.J. Pollock a breather, Hazelbaker did his best Pollock impression by getting on base at will. All three of his hits were singles. Hazelbaker made a bit of a name for himself early on last season but is nothing more than bench depth who can make the occasional spot start, as he did Saturday. Apr 9 - 12:38 AM

Jeremy Hazelbaker went 1-for-1 with a pinch-hit RBI double in Wednesday's win over the Giants.

Hazelbaker pinch-hit for Taijuan Walker with one out in the sixth inning and the score knotted at 4-4. He proceeded to pick up an RBI double off Matt Moore to boost the Diamondbacks to a 5-4 advantage. They would score twice more in that frame, then twice more in each of the next two innings as they slowly pulled away from the opposition. Hazelbaker was claimed off waivers from the Cardinals in early November after slashing .235/.295/.480 with 12 homers and 28 RBI over the course of 200 at-bats during the 2016 season.
Apr 6 - 1:12 AM

Diamondbacks claimed OF Jeremy Hazelbaker off waivers from the Cardinals.

Hazelbaker got off to a great start this past season but really faded as the year went along, ultimately winding up with a .235/.295/.480 batting line and 12 homers. He should serve as an extra outfielder for the D'Backs in 2017.

Jeremy Hazelbaker led off the ninth inning with a solo home run to break up Kyle Hendricks' no-hitter in Monday's loss to the Cubs.

The Cardinals had drawn just two walks and didn't hit very many balls hard through eight innings, but Hazelbaker launched a Hendricks offering deep into the right field seats to spoil the no-no. It was St. Louis' lone hit on the night and Hazelbaker's first hit since August 23.

Jeremy Hazelbaker hit a two-run home run in Saturday's loss to the Phillies.

The homer, off Phillies starter Jeremy Hellickson, was his 10th of the year and his second in three games. Hazelbaker started in left field on Saturday, and with Matt Holliday sidelined he could see more starts, especially since he can play all three outfield positions, going forward. The 29-year-old is hitting .249/.306/.497 in 86 games overall.

Cardinals recalled OF Jeremy Hazelbaker from Triple-A Memphis.

Hazelbaker batted .250/.286/.484 with seven home runs and four stolen bases in 61 games earlier this season for St. Louis. He probably isn't going to play as regularly this time around and can be ignored in standard fantasy leagues. Jhonny Peralta (thumb) was placed on the disabled list in a corresponding 25-man roster move.

The Cardinals are calling up outfielder Jeremy Hazelbaker from Triple-A Memphis, reports Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish.

Nothing is official yet and the Cardinals have yet to announce a corresponding roster move, though they have a couple of players dealing with nagging injuries. Hazelbaker was optioned to the minors last month after cooling down significantly from his surprising hot start to the season.

Cardinals optioned OF Jeremy Hazelbaker to Triple-A Memphis.

Hazelbaker cooled off after a red-hot start and hadn't been playing much of late. He'll get another shot eventually.

Jeremy Hazelbaker hit a pinch-hit two-run homer in the ninth inning of Saturday's loss to the Dodgers.

Hazelbaker didn't start on Saturday, but came on in the ninth inning with the Dodgers trailing 5-1. He would launch a two-run homer to draw them closer, though the boys from the STL would not score again. The home run was Hazelbaker's seventh of the season and he is slashing a beefy .282/.330/.624 over 85 at-bats. While he won't often see everyday starts, he has proven to be productive when he does take the field.

Jeremy Hazelbaker was checked for a possible oblique injury during Wednesday's game, but he took batting practice Thursday and said he was "good to go."

Hazelbaker looked to stretch out his back/oblique after a swing in the eighth inning Wednesday. Although he insists he's fine, it's notable because he was not among the many left-handed bats the Cardinals started Thursday. Keep an eye on this, as it wouldn't be a surprise if Hazelbaker were attempting to hide an injury here given his situation.

Jeremy Hazelbaker had a two-run homer and an RBI double after taking over for an injured Matt Holliday in Monday's game.

Hazelbaker is now 5-for-11 with three homers, two doubles and seven RBI coming off the bench this year. He's been fine in his starts, too, hitting .268/.304/.512 in those 10 games, but it's as a sub that he's truly shined. It looked like he'd be spending more time on the bench going forward after cooling off some of late, but if Holliday is hobbled (early word is that it was just a cramp), that would change.

Jeremy Hazelbaker didn't start in Saturday's 11-2 win over the Padres, but he entered the game in the seventh inning as a pinch hitter and clobbered a three-run shot.

Hazelbaker had been the latest "Random Cardinal Who Suddenly Becomes Good." He's now hitting .311/.340/.689 on the year. However, the 28-year-old journeyman had only started two games since April 15, and his home run was his first base hit since April 14. It seems the clock may finally be getting close to striking midnight, even if he was able to sneak in a bit more excitement before the fairytale ends.

Jeremy Hazelbaker is out of the Cardinals' starting lineup on Wednesday against the Cubs.

Hazelbaker got off to an incredible start this season, but he went 0-for-4 on Tuesday night and is hitless in his last 14 at-bats. We all knew some regression was coming. Matt Holliday is in left field, Randal Grichuk is in center, and Stephen Piscotty is in right on Wednesday afternoon versus Chicago. Matt Adams will get the start at first base.

Jeremy Hazelbaker went 0-for-4 in Tuesday's game against the Cubs, leaving him hitless in his last 14 at-bats.

There was bound to be a learning curve eventually -- surprising as it is, he wasn't going to hit .526 forever -- and it certainly seems as though he's battling it. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny continued to bat him second Tuesday, although that may end as well given the Cardinals' struggles to score runs in the series. If this is the carriage quickly turning back into a pumpkin, it was one of the more fun pumpkins to root for in the first few weeks of the season, at least.
Wed, Apr 20, 2016 12:08:00 AM

Jeremy Hazelbaker is not in the Cardinals starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's game against the Reds.

Daily fantasy players everywhere will have to look elsewhere for value plays in the outfield. Matt Holliday is starting in left field with Brandon Moss entering the lineup and drawing the start at first base.
