  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Sitting against lefty again

    Burleson is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Rangers, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports. For the second straight game, the lefty-hitting Burleson finds himself on the bench while the Cardinals oppose another southpaw (Martin Perez). Luken Baker, who went 2-for-4 with a strikeout in Sunday's loss to Pittsburgh in his MLB debut, will serve as the Cardinals' designated hitter and will likely occupy the short side of a platoon with Burleson for the foreseeable future.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Idle versus lefty

    Burleson is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates. After going 0-for-8 in the first two games of the series with Pittsburgh, the lefty-hitting Burleson will hit the bench Sunday against Bucs southpaw Rich Hill. Burleson could find himself out of the lineup against lefties on a frequent basis, but he should hold down a near-everyday role in the outfield or at designated hitter versus right-handed pitching while all of Lars Nootbaar (back), Dylan Carlson (ankle) and Tyler O'Neill (back) are on the injured list. Burleson had started each of the Cardinals' last 10 games.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Pops fourth homer

    Burleson went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Guardians. Burleson got the Cardinals on the board with the first of their three homers in the fifth inning, which was his first homer since April 27. He's hit safely in five of his last six games, going 6-for-19 (.316) over that span. The outfielder has earned a strong-side platoon role in left field while Dylan Carlson (ankle) and Tyler O'Neill (back) are out. Burleson has hit .240 with a .694 OPS, four long balls, 14 RBI, 16 runs scored, six doubles and a triple through 137 plate appearances.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Nabs third straight start

    Burleson will start at first base and bat fifth in Thursday's game against the Reds. Burleson will stick in the lineup for the third game in a row, this time manning first base in place of a resting Paul Goldschmidt after making his prior two starts in left field. The Cardinals should have room in the starting nine for the lefty-hitting Burleson against right-handed pitching while both Tyler O'Neill (back) and Dylan Carlson (ankle) are on the shelf, though Burleson likely doesn't have a long leash on a strong-side platoon role. Brendan Donovan and Oscar Mercado are both capable of playing alongside Lars Nootbaar in the outfield and are performing better at the plate of late than Burleson, who has posted a .570 OPS in 20 games over the past month.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Sitting against lefty

    Burleson is not in the lineup Thursday versus the Dodgers. Burleson has seen a significant decrease in starts in recent weeks, and that trend continues Thursday even with Tyler O'Neill (back) and Dylan Carlson (ankle) both sitting on the IL. Oscar Mercado, Lars Nootbaar and Tommy Edman will start across the St. Louis outfield against the Dodgers and left-hander Julio Urias.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Sitting again Wednesday

    Burleson is absent from the starting lineup again Wednesday against the Cubs. Burleson has been on the bench in four straight games and might be at risk of a demotion when Tyler O'Neill (back) returns from the injured list. Juan Yepez, Dylan Carlson and Lars Nootbaar are starting across the outfield for the Cardinals on Wednesday in Chicago.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Not in Sunday's lineup

    Burleson is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Tigers. The 24-year-old will sit Sunday for the third time in St. Louis' past four games, this time against Detroit righty Alex Faedo. Burleson is 3-for-27 across his past nine contests, and his playing time could remain inconsistent despite Tyler O'Neill (back) recently landing on the injured list since Willson Contreras is now expected to see some time in the outfield. However, it's Brendan Donovan that gets the start in left field in Sunday's series finale.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Out of lineup versus lefty

    Burleson is not in the lineup Friday versus the Tigers. The recently-recalled Juan Yepez will start in left field and bat sixth against the Tigers and southpaw Matthew Boyd. This is now back-to-back absences for Burleson, whose season OPS has fallen to .687. He is 0-for-8 on the year versus lefties.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Sitting out Thursday

    Burleson is not in the Cardinals' lineup for Thursday's game versus the Angels, Bally Sports Midwest reports. It will be Tyler O'Neill in left field against Griffin Canning for Thursday's series finale. Burleson is just 2-for-22 at the plate over his last eight contests.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Out versus lefty

    Burleson isn't in Tuesday's lineup against the Angels, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports. The lefty-hitting Burleson will take a seat against southpaw Patrick Sandoval. In his absence, Tyler O'Neill, Dylan Carlson and Lars Nootbaar will make up the Cards' outfield from left to right Tuesday.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Slams third long ball

    Burleson went 1-for-3 with a solo home run against the Giants in a 6-0 win Thursday. Burleson entered Thursday having gone 0-for-9 across his previous three games, and he grounded out in each of his first two at-bats against San Francisco starter Logan Webb. However, the young outfielder got the best of Webb in the seventh frame, clubbing a solo homer to right field to break a scoreless tie. Nine of Burleson's 18 hits this season have gone for extra bases, and he's struck out just 10 times across 82 plate appearances.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Takes seat Wednesday

    Burleson is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports. Burleson will take a seat for the first time since April 11, ending a streak of seven consecutive starts in which he batted either second or third for the Cardinals while slashing a collective .192/.222/.346. Despite his recent slump, Burleson maintains a respectable .772 OPS for the season. His performance to date gives Burleson some leash in a regular role, though with all of Tyler O'Neill, Jordan Walker, Lars Nootbaar and Dylan Carlson all healthy again, Burleson's grip on playing time has likely loosened compared to where it was a week ago.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Hits second homer of season

    Burleson went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Monday's 6-3 loss to Arizona. After going 0-for-3 to start the game, Burleson crushed a two-run homer in the bottom of the eighth to cut Arizona's lead to 6-3. Through 50 plate appearances, he's slashing .277/.320/.532 with seven strikeouts to just three walks.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: In lineup at DH

    Burleson (shin) will serve as the Cardinals' designated hitter and No. 2 batter in Monday's game against the Diamondbacks, John Denton of MLB.com reports. Burleson exited Sunday's 5-4 win over the Pirates after fouling a ball off his right shin, but X-rays were negative and he's feeling well enough a day later to at least serve in a non-defensive role. The Cardinals will have Tyler O'Neill man left field, the position Burleson had occupied in both of the previous two contests.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: X-rays negative

    Burleson (shin) underwent X-rays that came back negative Sunday, John Denton of MLB.com reports. Burleson was diagnosed with a right shin contusion after fouling a pitch off his lower leg Sunday, and his X-rays confirmed the diagnosis. He's considered day-to-day for now, and the Cardinals will wait to see how he feels Monday before determining his status for the series opener against Arizona that day.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Managing bruised shin

    Burleson was diagnosed with a right shin contusion after leaving Sunday's game against the Pirates. The 24-year-old fouled a pitch off himself during the third inning and was unable to remain in the contest. Burleson finished the game 0-for-2, which snapped a modest four-game hit streak. He should be considered day-to-day.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Exits Sunday's game

    Burleson was removed from Sunday's game against the Pirates after he fouled a pitch off his lower leg, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports. Burleson fouled the pitch off himself during the third inning and stayed in to finish the plate appearance, but he was replaced in the field for the following frame. The specifics of the injury are unclear, but the Cardinals should update the 24-year-old's status in the near future.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Gets another start in left field

    Burleson is starting in left field and batting second for the Cardinals on Friday in Milwaukee. Burleson appears to have leap-frogged Dylan Carlson in the Cards' outfield pecking order, at least against right-handers. In five games versus righties since Lars Nootbaar (thumb) was sidelined, Burleson has been in left field and in the two-hole for all of them. Carlson, meanwhile, has made just three starts this season (two in center field, one in left field).

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Displays power potential

    Burleson went 3-for-4 with a home run, two doubles, two RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's 9-4 win over the Blue Jays. After going 0-for-4 on Saturday, Burleson stepped up in Sunday's series finale. He hit the second of three homers for the Cardinals in the first inning, and he later added an RBI double. The 24-year-old was a slightly surprising addition to the Cardinals' Opening Day roster, given how crowded their outfield is, but he's now started consecutive games in left field. It appears he'll compete with Lars Nootbaar (thumb) for regular playing time at that position.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Informed he'll make roster

    Burleson has been informed he'll make the Opening Day roster for the Cardinals, MLB Pipeline reports. Burleson and Jordan Walker have both swung their way onto the Opening Day roster for the reigning NL Central champions. The 24-year-old Burleson has registered a .744 OPS with a home run over his 61 plate appearances, and also shown the ability to help out at multiple positions. Burleson may not have a starting role to begin the 2023 campaign with the Cardinals, but he has a chance to hit his way into regular playing time to begin the new year.
