Stephen Piscotty is not in the Cardinals' lineup Wednesday afternoon against the Rockies.

It's a day of physical and mental rest for Piscotty, who's batting .246/.301/.354 with 20 strikeouts in 65 at-bats this month. Jeremy Hazelbaker will start in right field and bat sixth Wednesday versus Rockies right-hander German Marquez.

Stephen Piscotty doubled in a pair of runs on a 1-for-4 night as the Cardinals came back late to beat the Brewers.

The Cardinals trailed 1-0 until the eighth inning when they broke loose with five runs. Piscotty's double was the key blow as Matt Carpenter and Kolten Wong came around to score. Piscotty has been pretty good his season but not a difference-maker in fantasy leagues. He is batting .279 with 21 home runs and 78 RBI.
Sep 10 - 10:25 PM

Stephen Piscotty (wrist) finished 1-for-3 with a walk on Wednesday versus the Pirates.

Piscotty was held out of the Cardinals' lineup Tuesday after taking a pitch off his left wrist Monday. X-rays obviously came back negative. Piscotty, 25, has posted an impressive .277/.350/.469 batting line with 20 home runs and 75 RBI in 130 games this season for the Wild Card-hunting Redbirds.

Stephen Piscotty (wrist) is out of the Cardinals' starting lineup on Tuesday night.

Piscotty took a pitch off his left wrist on Monday evening, but X-rays came back negative and he could return Wednesday. Brandon Moss is in right field and batting third on Tuesday versus Pirates right-hander Ryan Vogelsong. Matt Adams will start at first base.
Sep 6 - 6:45 PM

X-rays came back negative on Stephen Piscotty's left wrist.

Piscotty left Monday's game after he was hit in the wrist by a pitch, but he downplayed the issue after the game. He might not have to miss any time.
Sep 5 - 8:16 PM

Stephen Piscotty (wrist) left Monday's game against the Pirates for precautionary reasons.

Piscotty was hit in the left wrist by a pitch in the fifth inning and the Cardinals didn't want to take any chances with him. It doesn't sound like a major concern at the moment, so consider him day-to-day.
Sep 5 - 6:26 PM

Stephen Piscotty exited Monday's game against the Pirates with a possible left wrist injury.

Piscotty was hit in the left wrist/hand by a pitch in the top of the fifth inning and was replaced in the outfield by Kolten Wong in the bottom of the frame. The Cardinals have a huge lead, so they might just be trying to play things safe, but we should know more after the game. Piscotty went 1-for-3 with a two-run double and two runs scored before exiting.
Sep 5 - 6:20 PM

Stephen Piscotty finished 3-for-5 with a homer and three RBI in Wednesday's rout of the Mets.

Piscotty has four homers and 10 RBI in his last 10 games. His average and OBP have slipped, but he's remained pretty valuable anyway.
Aug 25 - 12:25 AM

Stephen Piscotty blasted a go-ahead three-run homer in the eighth inning on Sunday, powering the Cardinals to a 6-4 victory over the Cubs.

The Cardinals entered the eighth inning trailing 3-1, when Kolten Wong and Greg Garcia led off with singles against Hector Rondon. Piscotty then played the role of hero, demolishing a 1-1 offering over the wall in center field for the game-changing blast. He finished the evening 1-for-4 and is now slashing .276/.347/.468 with 17 homers and 65 RBI on the year.
Aug 14 - 11:20 PM

Stephen Piscotty is out of the Cardinals' starting lineup Wednesday night against the Reds.

Brandon Moss is starting in right field and batting third versus Cincinnati right-hander Anthony DeSclafani. Piscotty is just getting a day of maintenance.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Piscotty's absence is good news for Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani, but it also helps out a few of the Cardinals bats who are now in better run producing spots. Losing Piscotty towards the top of the order is obviously a downgrade to the offense in general, but it provides Kolten Wong with an opportunity to hit in the two-hole between Carpenter and Moss. Wong's numbers against RHP aren't strong this season, but he had a respectable .335 wOBA and .156 ISO against them in 2015.
Aug 10 - 3:53 PM

Stephen Piscotty got one of the two Cardinals hits in the game on Friday, but somehow they won anyway.

The only other hit was an RBI single by pitcher Jaime Garcia. Piscotty has cooled down a lot after his smoking-hot April and May. He is now batting .281 with 15 home runs, 61 runs scored, 60 RBI and four steals. Those are okay numbers but championship-caliber fantasy teams will need better.
Aug 5 - 11:58 PM

Stephen Piscotty hit his 15th homer Wednesday off the Reds' Cody Reed.

Seven of those homers have come in his last 25 starts. Piscotty's OBP has slipped some while he's hit his homers recently, but the Cardinals seem content with the tradeoff. He's mostly hitting third right now, though he did make a rare appearance in the leadoff spot Tuesday (going 1-for-4 with a walk in a loss).
Aug 3 - 11:21 PM

Stephen Piscotty is batting leadoff for the Cardinals on Tuesday night against the Reds.

It will be his first career start out of the leadoff spot. St. Louis has struggled to find a good option for that role since Matt Carpenter (oblique) went down.
Aug 2 - 4:52 PM

Stephen Piscotty is absent from the Cardinals' lineup Friday.

Piscotty is in the midst of an 0-for-12 stretch with eight strikeouts, so he'll get a breather. Jeremy Hazelbaker is in right field.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: With Piscotty on the bench, the strikeout prone Jeremy Hazelbaker will slide into the six spot in the order. Hazelbaker is available at or near minimum price across the industry, and this particular match-up seems to play to his favor. His biggest weakness is strikeouts (27.9% vs. RHP), but Marlins starter Jose Urena owns just a 2.55 K/9 rate against LH bats over his short career. Hazelbaker is also capable of swiping bases which only further elevates his upside. He's sporting a ,333 wOBA and .222 ISO against RHP this season.
