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.

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.

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.

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Working out consistently
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman has been in the St. Louis area for some time and consistently fielding groundballs as part of his regular workouts, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Given his location, Edman projects to be one of the players present at Busch Stadium for the small group workouts teams will be allowed to conduct beginning next week. In addition to the aforementioned baseball activities Edman has been participating in, Mark Saxon of The Athletic reports the 25-year-old has also been utilizing a Rapsodo Hitting 2.0 unit, a device that allows players to track critical data such as exit velocity, launch angle and spin axis when taking swings. Edman's diligent work comes in anticipation of a robust role during a 2020 campaign that should see him log time at multiple positions for a second straight season.

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Sees plenty of action in spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman hit .237 (9-for-38) with a double, a home run, six RBI, two walks and eight runs across 12 Grapefruit League games before spring training was suspended.

The versatile 24-year-old is set for ample playing time at various positions whenever the 2020 season does kick off, and he received plenty of opportunities to tune up before play was paused. Edman proved to be a legitimate multi-category fantasy asset during his first taste of the big leagues in 2019 by displaying above-average pop (35 extra-base hits) and speed (15 stolen bases in 16 attempts) while also boasting a modest strikeout rate (17.5 percent). Edman could see time at up to five different positions again during the coming campaign, with his role potentially set to be further fleshed out in any ramp-up period prior to the start of the regular season.

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Slated for ample playing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman's likelihood of receiving ample playing time in both the infield and outfield increased with the release of Yairo Munoz on March 7, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Coming into spring training, Edman was already set to see plenty of action in 2020 after having logged time at second base, third base, shortstop and center field last season. The 24-year-old was highly productive at the plate as well with a .304/.350/.500 line across 92 games, and he hit .237 (9-for-38) with a double, a home run, six RBI, two walks, one stolen base and eight runs across 12 Grapefruit League games before spring training was paused.

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Prepping for super-utility role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman is expected to see action at as many as six different positions in spring training, as the Cardinals envision him filling an everyday role as a super-utility man in 2020, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

St. Louis is eager to open up everyday playing time for Edman after he posted a team-best .850 OPS last season following his promotion from Triple-A Memphis in early June. After playing 55 games at third base and 29 games at second base as a rookie, Edman should already carry dual-position eligibility in most fantasy leagues entering 2020, and the Cardinals could work him into the mix at all three outfield spots as necessary. Any additional eligibility he gains as the season rolls along will only provide another boost to the ascending value of Edman, who could make a run at a 20-20 season if he gets 600-plus plate appearances.

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Extends multi-hit streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and a two-run triple in a loss to the Cubs on Saturday.

The rookie churned out his seventh consecutive multi-hit effort, a remarkable run that's helped Edman to a .364 average in September. Edman has accomplished the feat in nine of the last 10 contests overall, and he heads into the final day of the regular season with a stellar .307/.352/.506 line over 344 plate appearances.

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: On base four times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman went 3-for-4 with a stolen base, a run scored and a walk in Friday's 8-2 loss to the Cubs.

Edman's display of speed came in the fifth inning, when he reached on an infield single and swiped second in short order. He later scored on a Yadier Molina single in the seventh. Edman has 11 homers and 15 steals to go with a .305/.348/.500 slash line, 33 RBI and 58 runs scored in 90 games.

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Pops 11th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, three runs scored and a walk in the Cardinals' 9-7 victory over the Diamondbacks on Monday.

Edman continues to swing a hot bat, launching his 11th homer of the season in the first inning off Alex Young as part of his seventh multi-hit effort in his last 10 games. The hot streak brings the 24-year-old's slash line up to a solid .298/.340/.500 slash line over 302 at-bats.

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Laces another three-bagger
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman went 2-for-4 with a triple and two runs in an extra-inning win over the Cubs on Thursday.

Edman has shown a welcome penchant for meaningful contact in an impressive September, as 11 of his 20 hits during the month have been either a double (four), a triple (two) or a home run (five). Coupled with his .313 average since the calendar flipped from August, the rookie's contributions have been pivotal to the Cardinals' ongoing postseason push.

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Hits 10th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, two RBI and two runs in a 5-1 victory against the Nationals on Wednesday.

Suddenly, the 24-year-old is on a little power spree, as he's hit three homers in the last five games. During that stretch, he also has five RBI. Overall, Edman is batting .286 with 10 homers, 32 RBI, 48 runs and 13 steals in 283 at-bats this season.

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Goes deep again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a loss to the Brewers on Sunday.

Edman joined in on the fun of the Cardinals' four-homer barrage with a 367-foot shot to right in the ninth with Yadier Molina aboard to bring St. Louis within a run. The rookie has left the yard in back-to-back games for the first time in his career and has reached safely in nine of the last 10 contests overall.

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Leaves yard in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a loss to the Brewers on Saturday.

Edman launched a 378-foot shot to right in the second off Jordan Lyles to open the scoring on the night for both clubs. Ultimately, that proved to be one of the few offensive highlights for the previously hot-hitting Cardinals, who were flummoxed by Lyles and four relievers. Edman has left the yard on three occasions over the last seven games, and he's now hit safely in eight of his last nine contests, including in four straight.

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Makes impact from bottom of order
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman went 1-for-2 with a double, two walks, a stolen base and a run in a win over the Brewers on Friday.

Edman drew another start at third base Friday and continued to make the multi-faceted contributions that have become a signature of his rookie campaign. The 24-year-old's two-bagger served as his seventh extra-base hit of September, and he continues to impress on the basepaths with a 92.3 percent success rate on steals (12-for-13).

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Heads to bench Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edman is not in Thursday's lineup against the Rockies.

He is hitting .250 with two home runs and two steals in 11 games this month. Matt Carpenter will start at third base and hit fifth.

Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Playing time secure rest of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Although he projects to continue playing multiple positions, Edman is essentially locked into an everyday role for the balance of the regular season, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

The rookie has forced manager Mike Shildt's hand via his strong play with both the bat and glove. The switch-hitting Edman has acquitted himself well against both handedness of pitcher, but especially versus southpaws (.333/.362/.545 line over 69 plate appearances). Edman's extensive positional versatility has also made him a valued defensive asset, with perhaps no better example than when he played three different positions over three games during the Cardinals' back-to-back doubleheaders last week. The 24-year-old's contributions at the plate have been well-rounded, as he's hitting .278 with 25 extra-base hits (14 doubles, four triples, seven home runs), 27 RBI, 10 walks, 11 stolen bases and 42 runs over his first 267 big-league plate appearances.
