Cardinals' Lars Nootbaar: Homers twice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nootbaar went 3-for-4 with two solo home runs and three RBI in a 12-4 win over the Cubs in the second game of Friday's doubleheader.

Nootbaar went deep in the third and seventh innings of the nightcap. He also added an RBI single in the fifth. It was his first time leaving the yard since Aug. 13. The 23-year-old doesn't get a lot of starts, but he made the most of his opportunity Friday and is now slashing .221/.306/.432 with nine extra-base hits, 13 RBI, 13 runs scored, two steals and 12:24 BB:K over 109 plate appearances in his first MLB stint.

Cardinals' Lars Nootbaar: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nootbaar is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Tigers, Zachary Silver of reports.

Nootbaar posted a .758 OPS while starting in each of the Cardinals' last nine games, but he'll likely have to settle for a role as the team's fourth outfielder moving forward after Dylan Carlson (wrist) returned from the injured list Tuesday. Tyler O'Neill is dealing with back stiffness, but the Cardinals are labeling him as day-to-day and are hopeful he'll be ready to reclaim his usual spot in left field by the end of the weekend. O'Neill, Harrison Bader and Carlson will comprise St. Louis' everyday outfield from left to right when all three are healthy.

Cardinals' Lars Nootbaar: Swinging hot bat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nootbaar, who went 2-for-4 with a double in a win over the Pirates on Sunday, is hitting .368 (7-for-19) with Sunday's two-bagger, a home run and two RBI over his last five games.

The rookie has boosted his season average 67 points to .267 since Aug. 12, extending the hot hitting he'd displayed all season at Triple-A Memphis before his promotion. Nootbaar has also notably improved on the 18.4 percent strikeout rate he generated with the Redbirds, as he's gone down on strikes at a 16.2 percent clip over his first 68 encounters with big-league arms.

Cardinals' Lars Nootbaar: Connects on third homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nootbaar went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in an 8-4 victory against the Brewers on Thursday.

Batting fifth, Nootbaar homered off Brandon Woodruff in the fifth inning to cap a five-run frame, and he later walked in the seventh. The 23-year-old has compiled an impressive .229/.321/.479 slash line in 48 at-bats and has filled in admirably for the injured Dylan Carlson. Look for Nootbaar to return to a fourth-outfielder/bench-bat role soon as Carlson is expected back within the next week.

Cardinals' Lars Nootbaar: Settles into near-everyday role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nootbaar will start in right field and bat sixth Wednesday against the Brewers.

After providing a pair of pinch-hit home runs over the weekend against Kansas City, Nootbaar will draw his fourth consecutive start Wednesday. The lefty-hitting Nootbaar looks poised to fill a strong-side platoon role in the corner outfield while the Cardinals wait for Dylan Carlson (wrist) to return from the injured list.

Cardinals' Lars Nootbaar: Swats first major-league homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nootbaar went 1-for-1 with a two-run homer in Thursday's 7-6 win over the Pirates.

Nootbaar remained out of the starting lineup once again Thursday, but he served as a pinch hitter in the top of the fourth inning and put the Cardinals on top with his two-run shot. Since returning to the major-league roster July 31, the 23-year-old has gone 2-for-4 with a homer, three RBI, two runs and a walk across six games.

Cardinals' Lars Nootbaar: Recalled by Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nootbaar was recalled by the Cardinals on Friday.

Nootbaar appeared in his first 11 MLB games earlier in the year but didn't do much with his 30 plate appearances, hitting just .154/.233/.231. He'll likely fill a bench role.

Cardinals' Lars Nootbaar: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals optioned Nootbaar to Triple-A Memphis on Monday.

Nootbaar earned a look in an everyday role following his first big-league call-up in late June, but he served exclusively as a fourth outfielder in his second stint with St. Louis. Following his July 7 promotion, Nootbaar appeared in just two games for the Cardinals and picked up two plate appearances in total. He'll get the chance to play regularly upon returning to Memphis.

Cardinals' Lars Nootbaar: Returns to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals recalled Nootbaar from Triple-A Memphis on Wednesday, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

The rookie hit .160 with a triple and three RBI in 25 at-bats before being sent down July 1. Nootbaar's .310 average and five homers with Memphis have certainly turned heads, though, and he'll provide additional outfield depth going into the All-Star break. Carlos Martinez (thumb) was placed on the 10-day IL in a corresponding move Wednesday.

Cardinals' Lars Nootbaar: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nootbaar was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Thursday.

Nootbaar had gone hitless with a walk and two strikeouts in his last 11 at-bats, and he had been out of the lineup for each of the last two games. The 23-year-old will now return to the minors after Harrison Bader (ribs) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Thursday.

Cardinals' Lars Nootbaar: Sitting in second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nootbaar remains out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

The lefty-hitting Nootbaar saw a streak of seven consecutive starts come to an end Tuesday, when Arizona brought southpaw Caleb Smith to the hill. Though Arizona will start a right-hander (Riley Smith) on Wednesday, Nootbaar will remain on the bench, perhaps signaling that his days as a regular in the St. Louis outfield could be numbered. The 23-year-old rookie is off to a 4-for-23 start (.174 average) to his big-league career.

Cardinals' Lars Nootbaar: First multi-hit effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nootbaar went 2-for-4 with an RBI single, a walk and a run in a loss to the Pirates on Friday.

The rookie has made a quick impression at the big-league level, hitting safely in three straight contests while driving in a pair of runs. Nootbaar has drawn starts in all four of his big-league appearances and has certainly earned the opportunity for more opportunities.

Cardinals' Lars Nootbaar: Productive in first two games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nootbaar is 1-for-6 with a triple, RBI sacrifice fly and a run in his first two big-league games.

The 23-year-old made his big-league debut in left field on Tuesday before drawing a turn in right field in Wednesday's matinee. Nootbaar's three-bagger came in the latter contest, and his efforts over the first pair of games are likely to continue earning him additional opportunities.

Cardinals' Lars Nootbaar: Making big-league debut Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nootbaar is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Tigers, batting ninth and playing left field, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

Nootbaar was recalled earlier Tuesday with Lane Thomas being sent to Triple-A Memphis in a corresponding roster move. He'll be making his major-league debut after slashing a strong .329/.430/.557 across 93 plate appearances with Memphis. While Nootbar is starting in left field during the series opener, he seems more likely than not to get most of his starts in the opposite corner of the outfield when the club returns to National League play, as Tyler O'Neill will return to his typical spot in left field.

Cardinals' Lars Nootbaar: Receives big-league call-up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals selected Nootbaar's contract from Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday.

St. Louis designated pitcher Bernardo Flores for assignment and optioned outfielder Lane Thomas to Memphis to make room on the 40-man roster and 26-man active roster, respectively, for Nootbaar. An eight-round pick in the 2018 first-year player draft, Nootbaar doesn't possess noteworthy pedigree and didn't enter the season with major buzz in prospect circles, but he drew the big club's attention through his hot start to the season at Memphis. The 23-year-old slashed .329/.430/.557 with five home runs in 93 plate appearances at Triple-A, posting a magnificent 14 percent walk rate while striking out just 18.3 percent of the time. Expect the Cardinals to give the lefty-hitting Nootbaar a trial as a strong-side platoon option in right field, which would allow Tommy Edman to spend more time at his natural position of second base.
