Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Running hot at plate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman, who went 2-for-4 with a run in a loss to the Brewers on Tuesday, is hitting .318 (7-for-22) with a home run, two RBI, five walks, a stolen base and four runs across his last six games entering Wednesday's doubleheader.

The versatile 25-year-old continues to serve as a highly valuable defensive asset for manager Mike Shildt, but he's certainly picking up his contributions at the plate. Helping Edman to progressively increase his presence on the basepaths has been an improved walk rate, a figure that's up to 7.2 percent this year after sitting at 4.6 percent in his 2019 rookie campaign.

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Takes seat Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman is not in the lineup Sunday against the Reds, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

Edman started the past 16 games and will receive the day off for the series finale. Rangel Ravelo will receive the start in right field for the Cardinals.

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Swipes bag Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman went 2-for-5 with a stolen base in Saturday's 7-1 win over the Reds.

Both of Edman's hits were singles. His first came in the first inning, which was followed by his second stolen base of the year. The 25-year-old has produced four homers, 19 RBI, 21 runs scored and a .259/.320/.403 slash line in 37 games.

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Goes yard in nightcap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman went 2-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run during a 6-3 loss to the Tigers in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader.

His fifth-inning shot off Tyler Alexander gave the Cards a 3-0 lead before the bullpen fell apart, although Edman was also caught stealing for the third time in four attempts this year -- a far cry from his 15-for-16 performance on the basepaths as a rookie. The 25-year-old is slashing .262/.326/.415 through 35 games with four homers and 19 RBI.

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Swats third homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run during a 7-3 loss to the Twins in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader.

He also found ways to be productive in the nightcap, going 0-for-2 with a walk, an RBI and two runs scored. Edman's sixth-inning shot off Jose Berrios was his third homer of the year, but two of them have come in the last three days as he tries to re-discover last season's form in time for the Cards' stretch run.

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Opens scoring with solo shot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman went 1-for-5 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Sunday's 7-3 win over the Cubs.

Edman's only hit came in his first at-bat, when he took Cubs starter Jon Lester deep. In the third inning, Edman reached on a fielder's choice and scored on a Paul Goldschmidt homer. The 25-year-old Edman is slashing .263/.320/.377 with two homers, 14 RBI, 16 runs scored and a stolen base through 30 games.

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Collects three hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman went 3-for-7 with a double, a run and an RBI during Tuesday's 16-2 win over the Reds.

The 25-year-old now has multiple hits in each of the past three games and is 15-for-43 (.349 average) over his past 10 contests. Edman has a .274/.343/.379 slash line with one homer, one steal, five doubles, 12 runs and 12 RBI in 25 games this season.

September 1, 2020 06:40 PM
Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Enters September running hot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman, who went 2-for-5 with a double and a run in a win over the Reds on Monday, hit .344 (11-for-32) with two doubles, three RBI, three walks, a stolen base and four runs over the final eight games of August.

The versatile 25-year-old has pulled his season line out of the ditch with his current hot streak, as he's quickly boosted his average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage by 47, 47 and 25 points, respectively, in that stretch. Edman's current .261/.337/.364 slash line is beginning to progressively approximate the impressive .304/.350/.500 figures he generated during his 2019 rookie campaign, with a reduction in strikeout rate during that eight-game sample (16.7 percent, down from 19.4 percent) helping his cause.

August 28, 2020 05:12 PM
Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Day off Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman is out of the lineup Friday against the Indians, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

The 25-year-old started both games of Thursday's twin bill and went 3-for-7 with a walk, and he'll take a seat for Friday's contest. Edman is 12-for-34 with two doubles, five runs, seven RBI and a stolen base in his past 10 games. Matt Carpenter will shift to third base while Brad Miller serves as the designated hitter.

August 29, 2020 05:08 PM
Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Stays busy in twin bill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman went a combined 3-for-7 with a walk during a doubleheader against the Pirates on Thursday.

All three of the versatile Edman's hits were singles, but they served to extend his hitting streak to six games by day's end. The 25-year-old hasn't hit a home run since July 28 and only has a pair of extra-base hits (two doubles) in August, but he's now slashing an impressive .353/.436/.412 across 39 plate appearances over his last 10 games, raising his batting average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage by 82, 89 and 43 points, respectively.

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Another productive night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman went 1-for-4 with a two-run ground-rule double, a walk and a run in a loss to the Royals on Tuesday.

Edman erased an early 2-0 deficit for the Cardinals with his third-inning two-bagger, giving him five RBI over his last three games. The 25-year-old's .234/.319/.359 slash still has plenty of room for improvement, but Edman's .348 average over his last seven contests have certainly started his climb back to offensive respectability.

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Fills up box score in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman went 2-for-4 with two singles, an RBI, two runs scored and a walk in Monday's win over the Royals.

Edman shifted to second base with Kolten Wong getting the night off Monday. He reached base three times, increasing his on-base percentage to .313 on the campaign. Expect Edman to receive most of his playing time at third base going forward, with Wong likely returning to the lineup Tuesday.

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman is out of the lineup Sunday against the Reds, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

The 25-year-old operated as the Cardinals' fill-in shortstop over the last couple weeks in place of Paul DeJong, but DeJong makes his return from the COVID-19 injured list Sunday. Edman began the season as the everyday starter at third base and could return to that role with the team nearing full strength.

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Sits after productive Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman went 3-for-4 with two runs and two RBI in Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Cubs, but he's out of the lineup for Game 2, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

Edman started the past seven games at shortstop with Paul DeJong (illness) on the injured list, but he'll receive the night off after a strong performance in the matinee. Brad Miller will take over at shortstop for the Cardinals, while Max Schrock starts at third base.

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Likely shifting to shortstop
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman, who's started at third base in all five of his games thus far this season, is expected to shift to shortstop in the wake of Paul DeJong's (illness) absence, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The key takeaway from a fantasy standpoint is that Edman will naturally continue in an everyday role as he looks to build on an interesting start to the season at the plate. While the 25-year-old is hitting just .250 and has an on-base percentage of .286, he also boasts a .550 slugging percentage since three (one double, one triple, one home run) of his five hits have gone for extra bases.

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Smacks first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double and a solo home run in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Twins.

The 25-year-old took Trevor May deep in the eighth inning for his first homer of the season. Edman has gone 5-for-18 through the Cards' first four games with four RBI, and the early returns suggest his impressive rookie campaign last year was no fluke.

July 27, 2020 03:08 PM
Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Drives in lone run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman went 1-for-4 with an RBI in Sunday's 5-1 loss to Pittsburgh.

Edman gave the Cardinals a 1-0 lead with his RBI single in the third inning, but it was the only run his team could manage in the contest. The 25-year-old utilityman has collected a hit in each of his first three games this season.

July 26, 2020 11:20 PM
Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Timely hitting to close out win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman went 1-for-5 with a two-run triple in a win over the Pirates on Saturday.

As expected heading into the season, the 25-year-old Edman appears to have an everyday role at third base with the implementation of the universal designated hitter affording Matt Carpenter the opportunity to slide into that role. Edman has only two hits in his first 10 at-bats, but Saturday's three-bagger in the eighth inning brought home Harrison Bader and Kolten Wong to close out the scoring. Edman legged out an impressive seven triples in his first big-league season in 2019, and his above-average speed could well lead to a healthy amount of three-baggers again this year.

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Everyday role potentially awaits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman could potentially find himself in an everyday role at third base during the truncated 2020 regular season if manager Mike Shildt opts to make Matt Carpenter his primary designated hitter, Anne Rogers of MLB.com explains.

Edman has the luxury of sufficient defensive versatility to fill in at a number of spots, but the universal implementation of the DH for the 2020 campaign could result in him manning the hot corner regularly. Rogers explains Carpenter's extensive body of work as an accomplished hitter make him a natural to be the primary candidate for the role, which in turn would render Edman as the odds-on favorite to handle third-base duties. Not only does the 25-year-old's proficient glove work ensure there wouldn't be much, if any, defensive drop-off from Carpenter should Edman man third, but his ascension to the top job would also open up more playing time in the outfield for several promising young players.

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Has attended Busch workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman has been among the players that have attended small informal workouts at Busch Stadium in recent weeks, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Despite a rash of positive COVID-19 cases in some other camps, the Cardinals have apparently been able to hold their small gatherings of players without incident thus far. Edman has joined the likes of Harrison Bader, Paul DeJong, Kolten Wong and Adam Wainwright for the heavily regimented sessions, which have been limited to four players maximum and have included temperature checks, health surveys and strict social distancing.
