Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Shifting to shortstop
Edman will primarily play shortstop moving forward with prospect Nolan Gorman being promoted Friday to play second base, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.
Edman has started at the keystone in 35 of 37 games this season, but he'll now shift to shortstop with Gorman being promoted in the wake of Paul DeJong's demotion last week. Edman struggled the past two years but has a .269/.367/.431 in 2022 and has reclaimed the leadoff role, and the positional move will give him a minor boost in fantasy once he reaches the eligibility threshold....

After batting .300 with five multi-hit games in April, the 27-year-old has produced a .233 average in May and hasn't had a multi-hit effort since May 5.... See More ... See Less

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Dealing with calf soreness
Edman isn't in Wednesday's lineup against the Mets due to calf soreness, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.
Edman was hit by a pitch in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader, and Brendan Donovan will take his place at the keystone a day later. However, Edman will be available off the bench, so it doesn't appear as though his injury is a significant concern.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Riding pine Wednesday
Edman isn't starting Wednesday against the Mets, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Edman is currently riding a four-game hit streak in which he's gone 4-for-16 with a homer, a triple, four runs, two RBI and a stolen base, but he'll be out of the lineup for the first time since May 2. Brendan Donovan will shift to second base while Edmundo Sosa starts at shortstop.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Hits solo homer

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Notches eighth steal

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Likely to remain at second base
Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak hinted that Edman may continue to see most of his starts at second base even after everyday shortstop Paul DeJong was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.
Mozeliak suggested that Edman will continue to get reps at shortstop during pregame activities over the next few days before the Cardinals contemplate a position change, but the club doesn't seem overly motivated to shift him off second base and potentially disrupt his excellent start to the season both in the field and at the plate. Before Edman gets a look at shortstop, the Cardinals are likely to give chances to Brendan Donovan -- who picks up his first MLB start at the position Tuesday -- and Edmundo Sosa (illness), who is expected to return from the COVID-19 injured list later this week. Edman, meanwhile, will remain at the keystone and bat leadoff in Tuesday's series opener.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Tommy Edman: May move to shortstop
Edman is expected move over from second base to serve as the Cardinals' everyday shortstop following the demotion of Paul DeJong to Triple-A Memphis, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.
Edman began his tenure with the Cardinals as a utility player in 2019, but in the majority of fantasy leagues, he carried only second base and outfield eligibility into 2022. He has played exclusively at the keystone through his 27 games this season, but he looks like he'll have a chance at gaining eligibility at shortstop. How long Edman sticks at the position will be determined by the length of DeJong's stint in the minors, as well as what kind of role the Cardinals envision Edmundo Sosa (illness) handling once he's activated from the COVID-19 injured list. Sosa had previously been DeJong's backup, but the Cardinals could opt to give him a trial as the everyday shortstop while moving Edman back to second base.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Adds seventh steal
Edman went 0-for-4 with a walk, a stolen base and a run scored in Saturday's 13-7 loss to the Giants.
Edman's picked up two steals in his last four games, though both have been in contests in which he didn't collect a hit. The second baseman is sporting a 13.3 walk rate, which has helped him post a sturdy .408 on-base percentage through 108 plate appearances. He's up to seven steals, three home runs, 14 RBI and 18 runs scored in 26 games this season.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Notches three RBI in three-hit game
Edman went 3-for-5 with a double, a run and three RBI in Thursday's 7-1 victory over the Giants.
Edman once again served as a catalyst atop the order for the Cardinals, finishing with his seventh multi-hit performance of the campaign and producing a season-best three RBI. The second baseman knocked in a pair of runs with a single in the fifth inning and drove home another run with a single in the seventh. Edman could be on his way to a breakout campaign, as he's slashing .325/.429/.494 with three homers, 14 RBI, 17 runs and six stolen bases across 99 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Back in action Tuesday
Edman (hip) will start at second base and bat leadoff in Tuesday's game against the Royals, John Denton of MLB.com reports.
Just as manager Oliver Marmol suggested was the case, the left hip flexor soreness that Edman experienced in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks was never a major concern, even though the 26-year-old was out of the lineup for Monday's 1-0 win over Kansas City. Edman's re-entry into the starting nine a day later implies that he was on the bench Monday mainly for precautionary purposes, so fantasy managers should bank on him playing in each of the Cardinals' remaining six games this week....

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Expected to be available Tuesday
Manager Oliver Marmol said Monday that he expects Edman (hip) to be available for Tuesday's game against the Royals, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.
The 26-year-old sat out Monday's game against Kansas City as a precautionary measure after he was removed from Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks with a sore left hip flexor. Marmol has consistently downplayed the severity of the issue, and while Edman will be re-evaluated Tuesday, it seems likely that he'll return to the lineup after missing just one game....

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Not concerned about injury
Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol said Edman is feeling great and the team has little concern about the second baseman's sore left hip flexor, even though he's out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Royals, John Denton of MLB.com reports.
Edman picked up the injury in the seventh inning of Sunday's 7-5 win over the Diamondbacks, but Marmol suggested that the 26-year-old's removal was mostly made out of an abundance of caution. Marmol is terming Edman's absence from the lineup as more of a rest and rehab day, which should be beneficial given that Edman had started in each of the Cardinals' first 21 games of the season. Brendan Donovan will get the nod at second base Monday, but expect Edman to reclaim starting duties at the position Tuesday when the series shifts from St. Louis to Kansas City.... See More ...

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Not starting Monday
Edman (hip) is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Royals, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.
Edman exited Sunday's 7-5 win over the Cardinals with a sore left hip flexor and is considered day-to-day, but he was overdue for a day off anyway after having started in each of the team's first 21 games of the season. Assuming he's able to make progress in the next day or two, Edman should avoid a stint on the injured list. The Cardinals will turn to Brendan Donovan to replace Edman at second base Monday....

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Managing hip flexor tightness
Edman exited Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks due to tightness in his left hip flexor, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.
Edman singled in the bottom of the fifth inning but ran awkwardly to first base and was removed from the game shortly after. Manager Oliver Marmol didn't sound too concerned about the 26-year-old's injury, so he should be considered day-to-day for now.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Exits early Sunday
Edman was removed from Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks in the top of the seventh inning with an apparent injury, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.
According to Woo, Edman was running awkwardly after singling to right field in what proved to be his final plate appearance of the day in the bottom of the fifth, but he still played the field for the next inning before ultimately bowing out of the contest. The Cardinals will likely provide an update on the nature and extent of Edman's injury after the contest. If the issue is something that forces Edman to the injured list, top prospect Nolan Gorman could get a call-up from Triple-A Memphis to fill the void at the keystone.... See More ... See Less
