Stephen Piscotty (hamstring, knee) will be in Double-A Springfield's lineup Friday.

Piscotty was lifted from a rehab game Thursday as a precaution with a minor knee injury, but he's fine. He could be activated as soon as Saturday, assuming he doesn't experience any more hiccups.
May 19 - 1:50 PM

Stephen Piscotty (hamstring) left Thursday's rehab game with Double-A Springfield after two innings after tweaking his knee.

His removal was precautionary, and it's possible he'll be ready to play for Springfield again on Friday depending on how he feels. Piscotty had been due for activation this weekend and it sounds like that could still happen, but we'll have to wait and see how his knee is doing.
May 19 - 8:15 AM

Stephen Piscotty (hamstring) went 0-for-3 with a walk and an RBI groundout in his first rehab game Tuesday night with Double-A Springfield.

Piscotty is on track to return to the Cardinals' active roster on Friday, possibly pushing Magneuris Sierra back to the minor leagues. Piscotty, the Cardinals' regular right fielder, has been on the 10-day disabled list since May 5 because of a hamstring strain.
May 16 - 10:25 PM

Stephen Piscotty (hamstring) is on track to be activated from the disabled list Friday.

That's good news for the Cardinals, though it could be bad news for Magneuris Sierra's major league roster spot. Piscotty, out since May 5 with a right hamstring strain, is scheduled to begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday night with Double-A Springfield. He was batting .241/.378/.380 with two home runs and 11 RBI in 25 games this season for St. Louis.

Stephen Piscotty (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Springfield on Tuesday.

Piscotty said last week that he expected to be activated from the disabled list Tuesday, which is the first day he's eligible, but the Cardinals want him to knock some rust off in the minors first. It's unclear how many rehab games he'll require, but he should be activated by the end of the week.
May 15 - 5:24 PM

Stephen Piscotty (hamstring) is on track to be activated from the disabled list Tuesday.

It's the first day he's eligible to return. Piscotty tested out his right hamstring with some running on Friday and evidently came out of it fine. Tommy Pham should keep starting for a few more days until Piscotty returns.
May 12 - 4:18 PM

Cardinals placed OF Stephen Piscotty on the 10-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain.

Piscotty's strain isn't considered serious after he underwent an MRI, but the shorter 10-day disabled list allows the Cards to be careful here. Tommy Pham has replaced Piscotty on the roster and should see some starts, especially with Dexter Fowler (shoulder) also banged up. Jose Martinez figures to see regular at-bats in right field for a while.
May 5 - 12:21 PM

Stephen Piscotty (hamstring) won't travel with the team to Atlanta.

Piscotty said he was encouraged after undergoing an MRI on Thursday night. He was originally diagnosed with a strained hamstring but now Piscotty is calling the injury a "very mild muscle spasm." The Cardinals lost two thirds of their starting outfield Thursday with Piscotty and Dexter Fowler (shoulder) both going down with injuries. With Tommy Pham on his way to Atlanta, we should see a roster move before Friday's series opener.
May 4 - 11:24 PM

Stephen Piscotty left Thursday's game against the Brewers with a right hamstring strain.

Piscotty came up lame running to first on a groundout to end the second inning. He was helped off by a trainer and replaced by Jose Martinez in right field at the start of the third inning. It's been a rough night for St. Louis outfielders with Piscotty and Dexter Fowler (shoulder) both going down. We'll let you know as soon as the Cardinals provide an update on Piscotty's status.
May 4 - 8:48 PM

Stephen Piscotty singled, doubled and scored a run Tuesday versus the Brewers.

Piscotty singled in the fourth inning and then doubled and scored what turned out to be the winning run in the sixth. The most encouraging part of Piscotty's offensive game in the early going has been the 16 walks he's drawn, which has helped to lift his on-base percentage to .385.
May 3 - 12:38 AM

Stephen Piscotty is absent from the Cardinals' lineup Friday.

It's a routine day off. Jose Martinez will play right field.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: While Piscotty isn't an option tonight, Matt Carpenter still provides plenty of upside on the STL side. Carp hasn’t gotten off to a hot start this season, but his numbers against RHP are still fairly strong (.367 wOBA, .176 ISO) after he blasted a HR in last night’s contest. He was an elite bat against RHP last season (.386 wOBA, .262 ISO) and has absolutely owned Wily Peralta over the course of their careers, going 19-41 with 5 2Bs and 3 HRs. Peralta has been much better against RHBs this season which makes the Cardinals somewhat of a tough team to stack, but Carpenter as a stand-alone play is absolutely fine. Dexter Fowler, Aledmys Diaz and Jedd Gyorko are potential stacking partners.

Stephen Piscotty hit a solo home run for his only hit of the game in Saturday's loss to the Yankees.

His shot off Tyler Clippard drew the Cardinals within one run in the ninth inning but they were not able to complete the comeback. It was his second home run of the season and helped boost his slash line up to .250/.382/.500 through 33 at-bats. If he can keep up that sort of pace he should exceed last year's 22 home runs with 86 runs scored, 85 RBI and seven steals. He is an above average if not stellar fantasy outfielder.
Apr 15 - 4:49 PM

Stephen Piscotty went 3-for-5 with a three-run home run and five total RBI in Wednesday's 6-1 win over the Nationals.

Piscotty picked up an RBI double in the first inning and an additional RBI via a single in the fifth. That was just window dressing for his big ninth inning dinger. With the Cardinals holding a 3-1 lead in the top of the frame, Piscotty unloaded for a three-run shot against Joe Blanton to provide a nice chunk of insurance. This huge day no doubt allowed Piscotty to breathe just a little easier -- entering Wednesday's action, he had managed a mere three hits in his first 17 at-bats. He had been dealing with a minor knee injury over the weekend, but looked no worse for the wear against the Nats in this one.
Apr 12 - 7:58 PM

Stephen Piscotty (knee) has returned to the Cardinals' lineup Monday versus the Nationals.

Piscotty missed back-to-back starts over the weekend after banging his knee on a slide Friday, but apparently he's feeling a lot better now. He'll hit cleanup against Tanner Roark in his return to action.
