Stephen Piscotty (neck) finished 2-for-3 with a walk and an RBI in his first major league start at first base Sunday afternoon against the Braves.
Piscotty started two games in left field for the Cardinals early last week in Chicago, but he was held out of the lineup for three straight games when the team returned home because of a stiff neck. The 24-year-old is obviously fine now and should begin to see semi-regular playing time at first base. He was sharp there defensively on Sunday and he's done some nice things offensively since his July 21 callup. Jul 27 - 9:02 AM

Stephen Piscotty hit a pinch-hit RBI sacrifice fly in the bottom of the eighth inning Saturday as the Cardinals edged the Braves at Busch Stadium.

Piscotty was held out of the lineup for a second straight day due to neck stiffness, but he got called upon to hit after a Yadier Molina single and a Randal Grichuk walk and drove in pinch-runner Pete Kozma. It was the only run scored in the game, a duel between young starting pitchers Carlos Martinez and Shelby Miller.

Stephen Piscotty (neck) is out of the Cardinals' starting lineup again on Saturday.

Piscotty remains day-to-day with a stiff neck. He was able to pinch-hit on Friday night against the Braves, so the injury obviously isn't too serious. The 24-year-old prospect should begin to see regular action at first base once he returns to full strength.
Jul 25 - 4:13 PM

Stephen Piscotty (neck) grounded out in his lone at bat as a pinch hitter in Friday's victory over the Braves.

He was out of the starting lineup the past two games due to a stiff neck, but the fact that he was available to take swings off of the bench is an encouraging sign. Look for him to return to the lineup on Saturday.
Jul 25 - 8:40 AM

Stephen Piscotty (neck) remained out of the Cardinals' lineup Friday.

He's now missed two straight contests due to a stiff neck, but Piscotty took swings before the game and could be available off the bench. Mark Reynolds is at first base Friday.
Jul 24 - 4:19 PM

Stephen Piscotty was scratched from Thursday's lineup against the Royals due to a stiff neck.

Piscotty was slated to make his first major league start at first base, but now Dan Johnson will fill in. Consider Piscotty day-to-day.
Jul 23 - 4:51 PM

Stephen Piscotty is starting at first base and batting eighth on Thursday versus the Royals.

It will be Piscotty's first major league start at first base. He served as the Cardinals' left fielder during a two-game interleague set against the White Sox. Mark Reynolds is on the bench on Thursday night.
Jul 23 - 3:42 PM

Stephen Piscotty is starting in left field and batting ninth in his MLB debut Tuesday against the White Sox.

Matt Holliday will serve as the Cardinals' designated hitter in their series-opener at U.S. Cellular Field, an American League park. Piscotty was officially promoted Tuesday afternoon from Triple-A Memphis, where he was slashing .272/.366/.475 with 11 home runs over 87 games. The 24-year-old former first-rounder is worth a look in deeper fantasy leagues. He'll play first base and some corner outfield for the Cards.
Jul 21 - 4:42 PM

Cardinals purchased the contract of OF/1B Stephen Piscotty from Triple-A Memphis.

News of the move was reported on Monday, but it's now official. Piscotty has mostly played the outfield in the minors, but he has gotten some exposure at first base in recent weeks and could begin to take playing time away from the struggling Mark Reynolds. The 24-year-old was batting .272/.366/.475 with 11 home runs over 87 games this season in Triple-A. He's worth a look in deeper fantasy formats.
Jul 21 - 1:04 PM

Rob Rains of STLSportsPage.com reports that top outfield prospect Stephen Piscotty will join the Cardinals on Tuesday evening in Chicago.

Piscotty has been getting work at first base over the last couple of weeks at Triple-A Memphis and could see some starts there with Mark Reynolds struggling and Matt Adams (quad) possibly done for the year. Piscotty got off to a slow start this season in the minors, but the 24-year-old former 36th overall pick was batting .314/.401/.497 over his last 42 games. He could carry some value in NL-only formats if he works his way into a regular role.
Jul 20 - 1:25 PM

Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak has revealed that outfield prospect Stephen Piscotty has been working out at first base.

He hasn't played in a game yet at the position, but Piscotty has plenty of experience at third base from college and his early days in the minors, so handling first shouldn't be a big issue. Piscotty's best chance at playing time with the big club likely would come at first base. There was some speculation after the 24-year-old was scratched from Triple-A Memphis' lineup Tuesday that he could be coming up to the majors, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
Jul 8 - 12:04 PM

Cardinals prospect OF Stephen Piscotty went 3-for-5 with a home run and two RBI on Wednesday for Triple-A Memphis.

Piscotty now has 10 home runs, including three in his last seven games. The 24-year-old is having a strong season in his second tour of the Pacific Coast League, batting .268/.363/.472 with 45 runs scored, 31 extra-base hits and 33 RBI through 68 games. It’s also worth noting that Piscotty currently is enjoying his best month of the season for Memphis, with a .942 OPS, nine extra-base hits, 10 RBI, four steals and more walks (12) than strikeouts (11) in 21 games. The Cardinals likely have been hesitant to promote Piscotty because he’s not on the team’s 40-man roster, but it’s hard to imagine he doesn’t get a look in the major leagues later in the year.
Jun 25 - 2:56 PM

Cardinals reassigned OF Stephen Piscotty, INF Scott Moore and RHPs Marcus Hatley and Mitch Harris to minor league camp.

None of the cuts come as a major surprise, as none of the quartet was expected to crack the Opening Day roster. The 24-year-old Piscotty hit just .216 (11-for-51) with a 13/3 K/BB ratio in Grapefruit League play.
Apr 3 - 10:27 PM

Stephen Piscotty went 2-for-3 with an RBI versus the Braves on Wednesday.

Piscotty didn't show as much home run power in Triple-A as hoped last year, but he's still a fine prospect with a chance to spend a few years as a starting corner outfielder. Whether it happens with St. Louis could hinge on the team's ability to sign Jason Heyward beyond 2015. Unlike Randal Grichuk, he wouldn't seem to have any chance of winning a spot as a bench player this spring.
Mar 11 - 4:09 PM

Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said Tuesday that outfield prospect Stephen Piscotty could be given reps at first base in spring training.

The Cards are looking at options outside the organization to possibly platoon with Matt Adams at first, but if they're not able to land anyone on that front they could turn to Piscotty. The former sandwich round pick played plenty of third base in college and at the beginning of his pro career, so he should be able to handle first base. Piscotty, who sports a career .292/.359/.435 line in the minors, was recently named St. Louis' No. 1 prospect by Baseball America.
