  • Cardinals' Juan Yepez: Swats seventh homer

    Yepez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Cubs on Sunday.

    Yepez joined in on a hit parade against innings-eater Alec Mills, belting the Cardinals' third home run of the third inning. That was all the damage it took to chase Mills from the game, and Yepez now has seven home runs since being called up May 4. The 24-year-old rookie first baseman is slashing .318/.304/.545 over the past week and continues to prove that he is ready for an everyday role in the big leagues.

  • Cardinals' Juan Yepez: Regular role reopens

    Yepez went 2-for-3 with his seventh double of the season in Monday's 2-0 loss to the Brewers.

    Yepez accounted for the Cardinals' only extra-base hit on the night and looks poised to recapture a steady role after he was on the bench for the team's previous four games. Though he filled in at first base Monday while Paul Goldschmidt served as the Cardinals' designated hitter, Yepez projects to see most of his playing time at DH or in left field for the foreseeable future after Tyler O'Neill (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list prior to the series opener in Milwaukee.

  • Cardinals' Juan Yepez: Homers as pinch hitter

    Yepez hit a three-run home run in Sunday's 6-4 loss to the Red Sox.

    Yepez hit for catcher Ivan Herrera in the ninth inning, and he lasered a three-run blast over the Green Monster. Considering he's been limited to just two at-bats as a pinch hitter in the last four games, this was a good time for the rookie slugger to show some power. He's up to six homers, 16 RBI, 18 runs scored and six doubles while maintaining a .276/.333/.465 slash line through 141 plate appearances. Yepez will likely continue to battle with Albert Pujols for starts as the designated hitter.

  • Cardinals' Juan Yepez: Sitting in fourth straight game

    Yepez is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Yepez will sit for the fourth consecutive game and has started to see his playing time dry up in the wake of the recent returns of Tyler O'Neill and Dylan Carlson from the injured list along with Brendan Donovan's emergence as an everyday player. If the Cardinals can't find steady at-bats for him in the near future, Yepez could be headed back to Triple-A Memphis soon.

  • Cardinals' Juan Yepez: On bench for afternoon game

    Yepez is out of the lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Pirates, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    Yepez will head to the bench for the third time in five games, with his playing time beginning to take a hit of late as a result of the recent returns of Tyler O'Neill and Dylan Carlson from the injured list. Carlson will be joining Yepez on the bench for the afternoon game, allowing Albert Pujols to enter the lineup at first base while Paul Goldschmidt serves as the Cardinals' designated hitter.

  • Cardinals' Juan Yepez: Hits late homer

    Yepez went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 7-6 loss to the Reds.

    Yepez got the Cardinals within a run with his ninth-inning blast, but they couldn't tie the game. The 24-year-old rookie drew the start at first base Sunday with Paul Goldschmidt getting a rare day off. Yepez has gone 8-for-28 (.286) in 10 games in June while finding playing time in the corner outfield spots and as the designated hitter. He's been solid with a .280/.341/.458 slash line, five homers, 13 RBI, 16 runs scored and six doubles through 35 contests, but the recent returns of Tyler O'Neill and Dylan Carlson could cause Yepez to lose playing time if his hitting slips.

    Yepez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's 7-3 extra-inning win over the Blue Jays.

    Starting at DH and batting fifth, Yepez took Jose Berrios deep in the seventh inning. The 24-year-old continues to prove he belongs in the majors, and through his first 18 big-league games, he's slashing .304/.377/.522 with four homers, seven RBI and 13 runs.

  • Cardinals' Juan Yepez: Goes deep in blowout win

    Yepez went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in a 10-1 victory versus the Orioles on Wednesday.

    Though St. Louis scored 10 runs in the rout, Yepez's second-inning solo shot was the only homer of the contest. The long ball was the second of the rookie's career and extended his hitting streak to seven games to begin his big-league tenure. Yepez has been a revelation thus far, slashing .444/.483/.778 through 29 plate appearances. He has been one of the season's top pickups in fantasy.
