Kolten Wong back in leadoff spot, Matt Adams at cleanup for Cards
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/20/15) With Peter Bourjos resting after facing left-hander Jonathon Niese, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny inserted second baseman Kolten Wong back in the leadoff spot Wednesday night against the Mets.
With Wong back in the leadoff spot, Matheny moved Randal Grichuk to the eighth spot. Matt Adams also returned to the lineup and is batting cleanup against Bartolo Colon and the Mets.
Wong is hitting .339 (21 for 62) with four homers and 13 RBI over his last 16 games. Adams is hitting .105 (4 for 38) with nine strikeouts over his last 13 games played.

Peter Bourjos out of Cards' lineup Monday, Randal Grichuk gets CF nod
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/18/15) Center fielder Peter Bourjos is not in the Cardinals' lineup Monday in New York against the Mets, as the recently activated (back) Randal Grichuk will get the start in center, batting eighth.
Grichuk began the season on the Cards' Opening Day roster but was shelved April 24 with a lower back strain. He was activated May 16 and is 2 for 5 since his return.
Bourjos is hitting .160 (4 for 25) over his last eight games.
With Bourjos out of the lineup, second baseman Kolten Wong moves up to hit leadoff for just the third time this season.
"We'll keep feeling our way through it and hopefully somebody will take advantage of it, or nightly, somebody will take advantage of it," manager Mike Matheny said to MLB.com. "We have to find that good mix."
Cardinals CF Peter Bourjos goes yard for first time in 2015
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/16/15) Center fielder Peter Bourjos hit his first home run since last August, as the Cardinals loss to the Tigers in 10 innings on Saturday. Bourjos has been getting plenty of playing time in center field for the Cardinals with Jon Jay on the disabled list, and his second-inning solo shot gave the Cardinals a brief 2-1 lead.
The home run was his only hit on the afternoon, as he also struck out twice. He now has just three hits over his last six games.
Cards move Grichuk to top of order, Bourjos eighth with Heyward off
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/16/15) Cardinals outfielder Jason Heyward was given the day off Saturday against left-hander David Price and the Tigers, per MLB.com. Heyward is hitting .143 (2 for 14) over his last four games, and .361 against left-handers this season.
With Heyward on the bench, St. Louis manager Mike Matheny inserted Randal Grichuk in right field at the leadoff spot, bumping center fielder Peter Bourjos from the top of the order to the No. 8 hole.
St. Louis is an underdog (+105) at home against Detroit, per VegasInsider.com.
|2014 summary: When the Cardinals acquired Peter Bourjos from the Angels last offseason, the assumption was he'd replace Jon Jay as the team's primary center fielder. But he struggled so badly at the plate that the Cardinals eventually had to pull the plug, limiting him to just giving Jay occasional days off down the stretch.|
Playing time status: The Cardinals have never been sold on Jay in center field, but after their ambitious plan to oust him failed, they might be more inclined to stick with him going forward. Of course, Bourjos has been a competent hitter in the past -- perhaps something more than that in 2011 -- so if he gets off to a good start, he could enter into more of a timeshare with Jay. Then again, prospect Randal Grichuk is also lurking.
2015 outlook: At this point, you should be highly skeptical of Bourjos making a worthwhile contribution in Fantasy. He's done it only once, four years ago, and even then, his shortcomings were evident. And now, he's not even projected for a regular role. You might get a moderate number of steals from him in a best-case scenario, but he's looking like just an NL-only option.
