Stephen Piscotty went 2-for-3 with two walks and a run scored Saturday against the Diamondbacks.
Piscotty continues to get on base at a remarkable rate, as he's now reached at least three times in each of his past four games. Saturday's two-hit, two-walk games leaves his overall line at .335/.406/.521 with five homers, 25 RBI and 31 runs scored. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny has found a formula he likes with Piscotty batting cleanup in recent days, another plus for the 25-year-old outfielder. May 21 - 7:03 PM

Stephen Piscotty registered his second consecutive three-hit night Thursday, finishing 3-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored against the Rockies.

Piscotty had a pair of RBI doubles in the high-scoring affair. His hot hitting has caused Cardinals manager Mike Matheny to take note, as the skipper moved Piscotty to cleanup for Thursday's contest. If he sticks there, it should mean more RBI opportunities for the 25-year-old. Piscotty is batting .329/.390/.516 with 25 RBI and 29 runs scored through 40 games.
May 20 - 12:32 AM

Stephen Piscotty went 3-for-5 with two RBI as the Cardinals came back to beat the Phillies 5-4 on Wednesday.

Piscotty delivered a game-tying infield single in the bottom of the ninth, and Matt Holliday followed with the game-winner one batter later. Piscotty is batting .303 with four homers, seven doubles, 18 RBI and 17 runs scored through 27 games. He could well end up being one of this year's biggest bargains in the outfield.
May 4 - 11:52 PM

Stephen Piscotty is not in the Cardinals starting lineup on Saturday.

It's nothing more than a day of rest for Piscotty. Brandon Moss and Matt Holliday are starting in the outfield corners while Matt Adams draws the start at first base. Piscotty should return to the lineup for Sunday's series finale.
Apr 30 - 11:07 AM

Stephen Piscotty homered for the third time this year, finishing the night 3-for-5 with two runs scored in Saturday's rout over the Padres.

With his three-hit performance, he raised his batting average to .270 and his slugging percentage to .508. His sixth-inning solo homer chased rookie Cesar Vargas from the game, and the Cardinals demolished the Padres' bullpen. Piscotty is more of a well-rounded hitter than a fantasy powerhouse; however, he could still flirt with the 20-home-run mark, if everything goes well and he sees 600 plate appearances.
Apr 24 - 12:43 AM

Stephen Piscotty is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Cubs.

He's presumably just getting a night off. Jeremy Hazelbaker will start in right field and bat second against right-hander Jason Hammel.
Apr 19 - 2:58 PM

Stephen Piscotty went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and four RBI in Saturday's loss to the Reds.

Piscotty lifted a Brandon Finnegan offering to center, just clearing the outfield wall for his second homer of the season. He later added an RBI single. Piscotty batted second against a lefty, a good spot for him for fantasy purposes, and the 25-year-old is batting .268/.388/.512 on the young season.
Apr 16 - 6:48 PM

Stephen Piscotty is starting in right field and batting cleanup for the Cardinals in Friday's game versus the Reds.

There was an original report that had Piscotty at first base, but that was a typo from the Cardinals' official Twitter account. Matt Holliday is at first.
Apr 15 - 2:11 PM

Stephen Piscotty is out of the Cardinals' starting lineup Thursday afternoon against the Brewers.

It's just a routine day of rest for the Cardinals' right fielder. Jeremy Hazelbaker will start in right and again bat second versus Milwaukee right-hander Wily Peralta. Matt Holliday is in left, Randal Grichuk is in center, and Brandon Moss is at first base. Piscotty, 25, has hit .281/.410/.500 with four RBI and six runs scored in eight games this season.
Apr 14 - 10:58 AM

Stephen Piscotty will hit fourth in Wednesday's matchup with the Brewers.

Piscotty is off to a sizzling start this year, standing 9-for-29 (.310) with two doubles, a homer, a triple, and four RBI through eight games. Due to that hot bat, he has earned the right to man the cleanup spot Wednesday night against Brewers right-hander Chase Anderson. Piscotty has also hit second this season for St. Louis.
Apr 13 - 4:21 PM

Stephen Piscotty went 2-for-4 with an RBI, run scored and two walks in a win over the Braves on Saturday.

Piscotty had an RBI single in the fourth inning, the last of the damage done against Braves starter Julio Teheran. Piscotty has been moved around in the lineup in the first few games, but one thing that's been steady has been his ability to get on base -- he's walked five times and has a .417 OBP through the team's first five games. He also has a triple and a home run among his five hits thus far.
Apr 10 - 12:11 AM

Stephen Piscotty hit a pair of solo homers Thursday as the Cardinals beat a Yankees split-squad 9-1.

After batting second for most of the spring, Piscotty had his big game as a No. 6 hitter today. Second is where he belongs with his on-base skills, and we hope it's where he is on Opening Day. However, Kolten Wong was slotted in there today.
Mar 31 - 4:37 PM

Stephen Piscotty had two hits Wednesday and is hitting .435 this spring.

Mike Matheny deserves credit for recognizing that Piscotty is his best option to hit second. The 25-year-old has a .519 OBP in 26 at-bats this spring, and he came in at .359 in 233 at-bats after arriving in the majors last year.
Mar 16 - 4:42 PM

Stephen Piscotty left Saturday's game against the Mets after taking a pitch off his left elbow.

Piscotty was plunked following a home run by Randal Grichuk. Stolmy Pimental threw at the next batter, Jonathan Rodriguez, and was promptly ejected. Piscotty's X-rays came back clean and he shouldn't miss much time. He said he's considering wearing an elbow pad for the remainder of spring training.
Mar 12 - 5:24 PM

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny acknowledged Wednesday that he has abandoned the idea of using Stephen Piscotty at first base.

Piscotty drew nine starts last year at first base and worked on his defense there over the offseason, but the Cardinals will carry both Brandon Moss and Matt Adams on their Opening Day roster and no longer need the depth. Matt Holliday also worked out at first base over the winter and could see some starts there at some point this summer if Moss and Adams aren't delivering. Piscotty will open the 2016 season as the Cardinals' regular right fielder.
