Cardinals' Matt Holliday (left arm contusion) out against Royals


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2015) Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday will not play in Sunday's game against the Royals. 

Heading out to left field in his spot will be Mark Reynolds, who was the designated hitter on Saturday. Jhonny Peralta will be St. Louis' DH and Pete Kozma will play shortstop. 

In addition, outfielder Jason Heyward is out due to left hip tightness. 

Peralta will hit third, Reynolds will his hit seventh and Kozma will bat ninth. 


Mark Reynolds hits solo homer in Cardinals' win


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2015) Cardinals first baseman Mark Reynolds hit a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Mets. 

Reynolds went 3 for 5, scoring twice and raising his average to .267. 

Reynolds hit his third home run and drove in his twelfth run. 


Cardinals 1B Matt Adams sits on Tuesday vs. left-hander


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/19/2015) Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams will be out of the starting lineup for Tuesday's contest against the Mets. Mark Reynolds will get the start in his place.

With the Mets throwing a left-hander on the mound Tuesday, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny was quick to dismiss any thoughts of a possible platoon. He told MLB Network Radio that he does believe Adams will hit left-handed pitching on a "consistent basis". 

Nevertheless, Adams will sit on Tuesday. This season, Adams has just three hits (zero home runs) in 20 at-bats against left-handed pitching. 


Cardinals 1B Matt Adams not in starting lineup on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/15/2015) Despite facing a right-hander on the mound Friday, Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams is absent from the starting lineup against the Tigers. Adams typically sits against left-handers, but Mark Reynolds will get the start at first base while batting fifth on Friday. 

No injury has been reported as of yet, so it appears to just be a day of rest after starting five straight games. 


Matt Holliday, Jon Jay not in Cardinals' lineup


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2015) As expected, the Cardinals do not have Matt Holliday or Jon Jay in their lineup for Thursday's game against the Indians. 

Holliday was plunked in the elbow yesterday, though x-rays came back negative. Jay, who has left wrist tendinitis, was placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday. 

The Cardinals have shifted their lineup around on the diamond as a result of Holliday's absence. Mark Reynolds will play left field, Jhonny Peralta will be the designated hitter and Pete Kozma will step in at shortstop. 


Mark Reynolds goes 3 for 4 in Cardinals' win


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2015) Mark Reynolds went 3 for 4 for the Cardinals in Tuesday's win over Cleveland. 

Playing designated hitter in the interleague game, Reynolds drove in two runs and scored one. 

Reynolds improved his average to .258 and drove in eleventh run. 


Matt Carpenter still out, Cards go with Mark Reynolds at 3B Saturday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/9/2015) With Matt Carpenter out until at least Tuesday, the Cardinals continue to mix and match at third base, giving Mark Reynolds his second start in three days at the position Saturday in Pittsburgh.

Reynolds will bat eighth for the first time this season.

Carpenter had not missed a start at third all season until sitting out the Pittsburgh series with "extreme fatigue." 

Reynolds is hitting .212 on the season, with two homers and nine RBI.


With tough lefty on the mound, Cardinals 1B Adams takes a seat


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/8/2015) Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams will take a seat on Friday, as he is out of the lineup against the Pirates. Left-hander Francisco Liriano is on the bump for Pittsburgh, so manager Mike Matheny is limiting his lineup of lefty swingers. 

Adams is hitting .364 (12 for 33) over his last nine games, but he'll get the night off. Mark Reynolds will get the start at first, though he is just 1 for 15 lifetime against Liriano.


Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter gets first day off in 2015 on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/7/2015) Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter was given his first day off of 2015, as he was held out of Thursday's starting lineup against the Cubs. Carpenter had started all 27 games so far for St. Louis, but he has just four hits in 22 at-bats this month, so manager Mike Matheny opted to give him a rest.

Mark Reynolds received the start at the hot corner and hit fifth on Thursday, while Jon Jay moved up to the leadoff spot in the order.

The team is playing their 17th straight game without a break on Thursday, and their next schedule off-day isn't until May 11. So Matheny thought it best to give his starting third baseman a breather. 

"That's emotionally draining, physically draining," Matheny said, per FoxSports.com. "Some of these other guys have been stepping up big and got to keep them sharp."


Cardinals sit Jon Jay, Matt Adams, Kolten Wong vs. lefty


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2015) Cardinals center fielder Jon Jay, first baseman Matt Adams and second baseman Kolten Wong are out of the lineup for Wednesday's matchup with the Cubs and lefty Jon Lester.

Jay has made six straight starts in the leadoff spot but will cede the top of the order to Peter Bourjos Wednesday. Adams was also on the bench in the team's recent two games against lefty starters Saturday and Monday, and he'll sit for a third time in the last five games in favor of Mark Reynolds. Wong has started 24 of the team's 26 games at second base but will sit for the second time in a four-game span.

The Cardinals are favorites (-119) at home against the Cubs Wednesday, per VegasInsider.com.


Cardinals 1B Mark Reynolds hits grand slam in win over Cubs


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/5/2015) Cardinals first baseman Mark Reynolds doubled his RBI total for the season during Monday's 10-9 win over the Cubs. 

Reynolds totaled four RBI, which is the amount he had entering the game. He did so by taking an 0-1 pitch for a grand slam, which also scored Jon Jay, Matt Holliday and Jhonny Peralta. The grand slam was Reynolds' second homer of the season. 

Reynolds finished the game 2 for 3 and also drew a walk. He entered the game with only six hits in 34 at-bats. Going 2 for 3 with a grand slam raised his slash line to .216/.341/.459.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/2/2015) Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams and outfielder Jason Heyward received the day off Saturday against Francisco Liriano and the Pirates, per the team's official website.

Adams is hitting .208 (5 for 24) with a double, a triple and three strikeouts this season against left-handers. Adams is slashing .192.241/.256 with no home runs and no RBI this season. Mark Reynolds took his place and was slotted in the No. 5 hole in the lineup.

Heyward is a .263 hitter against southpaws this season. He is slashing .212/.272/.341 with two homers and four RBI over 92 plate appearances. Jon Jay will be moved to right field and will bat leadoff for the Cardinals.

St. Louis is considered a slight underdog (+100) at home against Pittsburgh, per VegasInsider.com.


Cardinals' Yadier Molina returns to the lineup, Jason Heyward out


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2015) Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina will return to the starting lineup Monday against the Phillies after missing two games with a knee injury, the team announced. 

Molina, who is hitting .294 with eight RBI in 51 at-bats, was replaced by Tony Cruz for the last two days while Molina recovered. He will bat sixth. 

Outfielder Jason Heyward is out of the lineup Monday after picking up a hamstring injury in Sunday's game. Mark Reynolds will take his place and bat fifth. Jhonny Peralta will slide up to Heyward's regular two spot in the batting order.

The Cardinals are currently the favorites (-145) against Philadelphia.


Cardinals' Mark Reynolds homers, plays left field Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Cardinals infielder Mark Reynolds went 1 for 5 with a solo home run while serving as the team's left fielder in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Brewers.

It was the first career appearance in left field for Reynolds, who played three games while making one start in right field last season. Sunday's game marked his second time in 1,025 career starts that he's been an outfielder in the starting lineup.

The home run was the first of the season for Reynolds, who has hit .200/.310/.440 with three RBI in 25 at-bats.

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Adams has started 12 of the Cardinals' 15 games coming into Saturday.

Cardinals' Mark Reynolds racks up two hits Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) Cardinals first baseman Mark Reynolds drew a rare start Thursday and rewarded his manager's decision by going 2 for 4 with a double and an RBI in his team's 4-0 win over the Brewers.

"Great day," manager Mike Matheny said afterward, per MLB.com. "This guy has some thunder in his bat, and it's going to be nice to get him locked in to where we can bring him into a situation where we know the other team isn't really happy about it."

Reynolds was just 1 for 5 for the season coming into Thursday's game.

"I was at a point in my career that I accepted [a part-time role] coming in, trying to win," Reynolds said of his agreeing to a role with little promised playing time. "So far, so good. I'll get some at-bats down the road, stay fresh and be ready to pinch-hit when I need to."


Matt Adams not in Cardinals lineup Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cardinals trying Mark Reynolds in left field


by Eric Kay | CBSSports.com Staff
(3/23/2015) The Cardinals are looking for creative ways to get Mark Reynolds into the lineup, and left field might be an option.

The Cardinals played Reynolds in left on Monday, his first outfield appearance of the spring.

"He's done some things, as far as run production goes, that not many people have done," manager Mike Matheny said, per MLB.com's Andrew Simon. "So obviously we view that as a weapon and we have to figure out how to maximize it and just keep our eyes and mind open to what that could possibly look like and not have it figured out ahead of time." 

Reynolds has played five career games in the outfield, all in right field, starting one and catching two fly balls. 


Cardinals will not try to overhaul Mark Reynolds' approach at plate


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2015) Cardinals slugger Mark Reynolds has carved out a niche in the majors as a power hitter. He has 224 home runs and a .457 slugging percentage over eight MLB seasons.

Unfortunately, Reynolds is also known as an all-or-nothing hitter and strikes out quite a lot. He has 1,398 strikeouts in 1,118 games.

Still, the Cardinals have no plans to dramatically overhaul Reynolds' swing, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

“We need to capitalize on what his strengths are and not to focus on the weaknesses,” Matheny said, “and realize that he’s got a power component that is very rare. There are going to be some swings and misses.

“But we’re not necessarily going to go up and ask him to completely overhaul that. Make some subtle changes to maybe improve, but not be afraid to drive the ball. That’s why we did bring him in, and also to give us some options against tough lefthanded pitching.”

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Mark Reynolds delivers in rare start


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) Brewers first baseman Mark Reynolds, who hadn't started in five games, got a start at third base Sunday against the Reds and delivered a home run -- a solo shot in the eighth inning. He finished the game 1 for 2 with a walk, a strikeout and two runs scored.

Reynolds entered the game mired in a 4-for-44 (.091) slump, causing manager Ron Roenicke to split first base between rookie Matt Clark and usual catcher Jonathan Lucroy in recent days.

"We know he's a streaky guy; we know that he needs to be out there playing to get it back," Roenicke told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Saturday. "We're in a situation where we have to make some decisions and try to play the hottest guy. That's what I've been doing."
