  • Brendan Donovan Stays Red Hot, Homers Again On Saturday

    Headshot for Brendan Donovan

    St. Louis Cardinals infielder Brendan Donovan went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a 9-4 win over the San Francisco Giants on Saturday. He blasted a solo shot off Giants relieve Luke Jackson in the bottom of the seventh inning to put the Cardinals up 8-4. His home run traveled 422 feet with an exit velocity of 107.4 mph. The 27-year-old has now homered in three of his last four games. He is hitting .458 (11-for-24) with three home runs, eight RBI, and three runs scored over his previous five games. Donovan is slashing .262/.329/.415 with eight home runs, 37 RBI, and 34 runs scored in 70 games. Fantasy managers should continue to start Donovan in all league formats while he's on this torrid stretch.

  • Brendan Donovan Collects Three Hits, Homers On Thursday

    Headshot for Brendan Donovan

    St. Louis Cardinals utility man Brendan Donovan had a big game on Thursday, going 3-for-4 with a homer, a run, and three RBI in a 6-5 win over the San Francisco Giants. Donovan smacked a two-run homer in the first inning to put the Cards in front early, then singled home the game-winning run in the fifth. The 27-year-old has been alright this season, slashing .258/.327/.402 with 33 runs, seven homers, and 36 RBI in 271 ABs. Since he doesn't run much, his utility in category leagues is limited to deeper formats.

  • Brendan Donovan Returning To The Lineup

    Headshot for Brendan Donovan

    St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Brendan Donovan (neck) is back in the starting lineup ahead of Monday's game against the Houston Astros. Donovan will make his return after sitting out the entire weekend series due to neck stiffness. On Monday, Donovan will cover left field and bat sixth versus right-hander Justin Verlander. This isn't an ideal streaming situation for Donovan against an elite pitcher such as Verlander. However, fantasy managers in standard formats can go ahead and get Donovan back in their lineup.

  • Brendan Donovan Not In Sunday's Lineup

    Headshot for Brendan Donovan

    St. Louis Cardinals utility man Brendan Donovan (neck) is not in the team's starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Phillies. Donovan has missed the previous two games due to stiffness in his neck. Alec Burleson will start in left field and bat second for the Cardinals while Matt Carpenter will serve as the designated hitter and bat sixth. Donovan is considered day-to-day for now and will have a chance to return for Monday's game against the Houston Astros.

  • Brendan Donovan Out Of Lineup Again On Saturday

    Headshot for Brendan Donovan

    St. Louis Cardinals infielder/outfielder Brendan Donovan (neck) remains out of the starting lineup for a second consecutive day with neck stiffness. As a result, Alec Burleson will play in left field this evening and bat in the six-hole. Donovan, who is typically in the lead-off spot, will cede those duties to young shortstop Masyn Winn, who was riding an incredible 16-game hitting streak through most of May. Donovan should be considered day-to-day for the time being and could return to the lineup on Sunday. Both Burleson and Winn have a difficult matchup in southpaw Ranger Suarez, who enters Saturday with a stellar 1.75 ERA, 0.82 WHIP, and 16:77 BB:K ratio and should be faded in DFS.

  • Brendan Donovan Scratched On Friday

    Headshot for Brendan Donovan

    St. Louis Cardinals infielder Brendan Donovan (neck) has been scratched from the starting lineup ahead of Friday's game against the Philadelphia Phillies. The 27-year-old is considered as day-to-day due to neck stiffness. This doesn't sound like the type of issue that would force Donovan onto the injured list. Dylan Carlson will take his place in the lineup and bat eighth versus right-hander Aaron Nola. Fantasy managers should adjust their lineups with Donovan sitting out.

  • Brendan Donovan, Nolan Gorman Out On Friday Night

    Headshot for Brendan Donovan

    St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Brendan Donovan and second baseman Nolan Gorman are both out of the lineup on Friday with the team facing Milwaukee Brewers rookie left-hander Robert Gasser, who is making his major-league debut. Rookie Michael Siani is starting in center field and is batting ninth, while Jose Fermin is at second base and hitting leadoff for the Cardinals on Friday night. Donovan has struggled so far this year, hitting .217 (31-for-143) with four homers and 19 RBI. Gorman has been even worse, slashing .172/.256/.319 with four home runs and 12 RBI in 116 at-bats. Fermin will be a deep DFS sleeper on Friday night out of the leadoff spot. The 25-year-old Dominican has three hits in only 11 at-bats in eight games this year after making his MLB debut in 2023.
