Infielder Mark Ellis has been activated from 15-day disabled list.

It's not clear as to how much playing time Ellis will receive upon returning. The Cardinals could platoon him with Kolten Wong as they did before, so he could have some value in deeper NL-only play.

Kolten Wong is not in the Cardinals' starting lineup on Monday.

Wong was cleared of his concussion, but is still dealing with neck soreness. He'll take a day off with Pete Kozma filling in at second base Monday.

Matt Carpenter is not in the Cardinals' starting lineup on Monday.

Carpenter hasn't had a day off since June 17, so with rosters expanding, he'll get a breather here. Daniel Descalso will fill in at third base Monday.

Kolten Wong's Concussion tests came back negative.

This is good news for Wong owners as he does not have concussion. He should be viewed as day-to-day until further information is made available.

Jhonny Peralta went 3-for-4 with two RBI and a walk in the Cardinals win against the Cubs on Sunday at Busch Stadium. 

Peralta has a hit in each of his last eight games, and is enjoying watching his average rise. He has a batting average in the month of August above .320 and has watched his average rise to .268. In a thin shortstop market, Peralta should be started and he is approaching twenty home runs for the year.

Matt Carpenter went 1-for-2 with a double, RBI, three walks and three runs scored in the Cardinals victory against the Cubs on Sunday. 

Carpenter has dual eligibility which is a nice plus for fantasy owners. While his numbers have regressed he still has quality stats that deem him as an everyday starter in your line up.

Matt Holliday went 3-for-4 with a home run, double, four RBI and two runs scored in the win over the Cubs on Sunday. 

Holliday is finally starting to pick up the pace with the bat and is finally rewarding fantasy owners. While his average still sits at .267 he has accrued a hit in 12 of his last 13 games, including four home runs in that same stretch. Continue starting Holliday with his hot bat, and ride his bat while you can.

Trevor Rosenthal allowed one walk and no runs to earn his 40th save of the year for the Cardinals on Sunday against the Cubs. 

While Rosenthal continues to put up saves, he does not always get them with ease. Having a 1-6 record with a 3.6 ERA is not typical of a closer with 40 saves on the season. Continue starting Rosenthal as your closer but it typically is not a calm ninth inning.

John Lackey allowed five runs (two earned) on nine hits and a walk with six strikeouts over 6.1 innings in a no decision against the Cubs on Sunday. 

Since his implosion on August 9th, Lackey has settled into a nice little groove. He has not allowed more than two earned runs in any of his previous four starts and will be a quality innings eater for the Cardinals down the stretch. He can continue to be started in line ups.
