RotoWire News: Piscotty, who is hitting just .143 this spring, could open the season further down in the batting order than originally projected, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports. "It depends on how confident he feels when we break camp," manager Mike Matheny said of Piscotty's lineup fit. "[For] every one of those guys, [it's] the same thing. How does each guy feel? Is this particular person in a good spot? That will help dictate what it looks like as we help put the lineup together." (3/27/2017)

Profile: Stephen Piscotty had a good first half, where he hit .295 with 11 homers and hit 30% better than the average player offensively. In the second half his average dropped to .247, and it wasn't just some bad luck. His strikeout rate went from 17% to 24% and his walk rate went from 9% to 6.5% indicating the struggle was real for Piscotty. He did manage to double his home runs in the second half, keeping his overall numbers on offense close to average. His line on the season ended up pretty good with 22 homers, 80+ RBI and runs and a .273 batting average. For the 26-year-old coming off his first full season in the majors, it is fair to think a repeat of those numbers is possible. Piscotty did also steal seven bases, but was caught five times so it isn't clear how many opportunities he will have going forward. Piscotty is entrenched in right field for the Cardinals, and he figures to hit in an important spot in the lineup, potentially cleanup, providing him with ample RBI opportunities. There is a chance that his second half numbers carry over and he's a low-average, 20-homer guy, and that seems about as likely as him finding 30-homer power with a .300 average. Odds are, he'll be somewhere in between. (Craig Edwards)

The Quick Opinion: Piscotty had a solid first half with a disappointing second. Expect a more consistent performance this season with roughly the same overall batting line, but with more opportunities to drive in runs.
