Change Team:

2017 RECAP

Record: 33 - 40

Last Season’s Fantasy Highlights

Kolten Wong shook off 2013’s playoff blunder to emerge as a nice dual power-speed threat at second base. His keystone partner, Jhonny Peralta hit 21 homers, the first time he passed the 20 mark since 2011. Adam Wainwright won 20 games despite a big drop in velocity.

What Has Changed?

Jason Heyward was acquired to play right field, the spot Expected to be occupied by the late Oscar Taveras. Shelby Miller was dealt for Heyward, finally availing a chance for Carlos Martinez to lay claim to a rotation spot. Setup man extraordinaire Pat Neshek left with Jordan Walden being brought in to take his place.

What to Expect:

You know that guy in your fantasy league that always wins but when you look at the team after the draft, you’re not impressed? That’s the Cardinals. The sum of the parts is usually greater than the whole. Everybody will do their job and at the end of the season, they’ll again be setting their playoff rotation. That said, look for Wainwright to take a step back with a healthy Michael Wacha picking up the slack. Justin Heyward should take a step up doing things the Cardinals way.

This Year’s Surprise:

Perhaps the result of being pushed for at bats by Mark Reynolds, Matt Adams puts it together versus left-handers as well as righties and hits 30 Big City flies.
