Greg Garcia, INF: He started during second bottom in Sunday’s 9-3 detriment during New York and did his on-base commission thing, going 2 for 4 and pushing in a run opposite a Yankees. He is now 4 for 12 with 4 walks drawn and a strike by pitch. With a Cardinals desperately seeking a spark, will he start some-more games forward of Kolten Wong opposite righthanded starting pitchers?
Matt Bowman, RP: Don’t censure this terrible Cardinals start on Bowman. All he does is get outs. He stranded runners on second and third in a fifth inning Sunday, afterwards got by a sixth inning unscathed. In 7 appearances this deteriorate Bowman has authorised dual hits, one travel and 0 runs in 6 1/3 innings. The New Seth Maness is doing his part.

In his initial 4 outings this deteriorate Cecil authorised 7 hits and dual walks in 3 innings of work. Now THAT is a pitcher a Cardinals invested free-agent dollars to get.

He indispensable 98 pitches to get 14 outs Sunday as he once again unsuccessful to tarry a fifth inning. Wainwright is 0-3 with a 7.24 earned-run average. He is going to keep battling, though during some indicate we all contingency comprehend he usually is who he is during this indicate in his career.
Dexter Fowler, OF: He is environment a tinge as this team’s new leadoff hitter — though that tinge is negative. His 1-for-5 opening Sunday indeed softened his deteriorate batting average. Fowler is attack .143 (7 for 49) this deteriorate with 16 strikeouts opposite 4 walks. During a Yankees array he was 1 for 14 with 0 walks.
Jhonny Peralta, 3B: He is losing at-bats to Jedd Gyorko, and justly so. Peralta is 1 for 17 in his final 5 games. Overall he is attack usually .120 (3 for 25) with 9 strikeouts, no extra-base hits and no RBIs. And remember, he non-stop this deteriorate as a Cardinals’ clean-up hitter.
Randal Grichuk, OF: His 1-for-11, five-strikeout display in New York wasn’t a misfortune on a team, given he did conduct to expostulate in dual runs. But a Cardinals need him to strike his approach toward a center of a batting order. Also, he needs to lane those fly balls, even in wily day diversion skies. Overall Grichuk is batting .182 (8 for 44) with 16 strikeouts and usually dual bases on balls.
Matt Adams, 1B-OF: The Yankee Stadium revisit gave him a integrate of cracks to fill a designated hitter purpose and he done a slightest of it, going 1 for 8 in those games with 3 strikeouts.
