  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Gets aboard three times in win

    Burleson went 2-for-3 with a walk, a stolen base and one run scored in Monday's 6-3 win over the Orioles.

    Burleson upped his hitting streak to six games (12-for-25), and five of those contests have been multi-hit efforts. He also has two homers, two steals, four RBI and six runs scored in that span. Burleson isn't known for his speed -- he's at two steals in 2024, one shy of last year's mark, which he achieved in 107 games. The outfielder has added a strong .301/.333/.472 slash line with five home runs, 17 RBI, 11 runs scored and six doubles over 129 plate appearances.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Clubs fifth homer

    Burleson went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and an additional RBI in Friday's 10-6 win over the Red Sox.

    Burleson popped a go-ahead solo shot in the fourth inning and added an RBI single in the seventh. The 25-year-old has multiple hits in three straight games, which is only strengthening his claim for playing time between designated hitter, the corner outfield spots and first base. Burleson is up to five homers, 17 RBI, nine runs scored, one stolen base and a .286/.316/.473 slash line through 117 plate appearances this season.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Stellar in Tuesday's win

    Burleson went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run, a double, a stolen base and two total runs scored in Tuesday's 7-6 win over the Angels.

    Burleson has gone 9-for-24 (.375) over his last seven games, with five of his hits in that span going for extra bases. He also picked up his first steal of the campaign in Tuesday's win. The 25-year-old is up to a .272/.306/.437 slash line with four homers, 15 RBI, seven runs scored and five doubles over 108 plate appearances. He's operated in a strong-side platoon role for much of the season, but it's encouraging to note that two of his three hits Tuesday, including his homer, came against left-handed pitchers. With both Dylan Carlson and Lars Nootbaar under the Mendoza line, there could be an opportunity for Burleson to see more consistent playing time, especially since he's been in the lineup against the last three southpaws the Cardinals have faced.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Homers as part of three-hit night

    Burleson went 3-for-5 with a solo home run and two RBI in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Mets.

    Burleson cranked his third home run of the year in the sixth inning off Cole Sulser and also drove in a run on a base hit in the first. He notched his first three-hit effort of the campaign and his fifth multi-hit performance. The 25-year-old is slashing .262/.303/.393 with 12 RBI, five runs and a 5:18 BB:K in 89 plate appearances and is firmly in a platoon against right-handed pitching.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Won't start versus lefty

    Burleson is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Mets.

    The lefty-hitting Burleson will remain on the bench for a second straight game while the Cardinals oppose another southpaw starting pitcher (Sean Manaea). Ivan Herrera will replace Burleson as St. Louis' designated hitter.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Resting against lefty

    Burleson is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    The lefty-hitting Burleson's streak of five consecutive starts will come to an end while he exits the lineup with southpaw Garrett Crochet on the hill for the White Sox. With Burleson on the bench, Willson Contreras will get a day off of catching and instead serve as the Cardinals' designated hitter.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Drives in five in twin bill

    Burleson went 3-for-9 with a home run and five RBI across both games of Tuesday's doubleheader split against the Tigers.

    After going 1-for-4 with an RBI single in the matinee, Burleson went deep off Tyler Holton in the fifth inning of the nightcap. Burleson's two-hit game in the second contest was his first multi-hit performance since April 10, and on the season, the 25-year-old outfielder is slashing .273/.324/.394 through 24 games with two homers, four runs and 10 RBI.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Heads to bench Sunday

    Burleson is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mets, John Denton of MLB.com reports.

    The Cardinals are giving Willson Contreras a day off behind the plate and having him serve as the designated hitter, so Burleson will bow out of the lineup as Ivan Herrera enters the starting nine at catcher. Burleson had served as St. Louis' DH in both of the past two games, going 2-for-5 with a home run, two walks and three RBI.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Slugs first homer of season

    Burleson went 1-for-3 with a walk and a three-run home run in Friday's 4-2 win over the Mets.

    His second-inning shot off Jose Butto gave Miles Mikolas and the Cardinals' bullpen all the offense they would need. It was Burleson's first long ball of the year, and his first extra-base hit since April 8. Jordan Walker's demotion cements Burleson into a strong-side platoon role, but his .259/.310/.352 slash line through 58 plate appearances with three runs and five RBI doesn't offer a lot of fantasy appeal.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Sitting against lefty

    Burleson is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    While his path to regular playing time against right-handed pitching has opened up a bit with Jordan Walker getting optioned to Triple-A Memphis earlier Wednesday, the lefty-hitting Burleson is still projected to sit regularly against lefties. Burleson's absence from the lineup Wednesday thus comes as little surprise with southpaw Jordan Montgomery on the hill for Arizona.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Sits for sixth straight game

    Burleson is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Athletics.

    Burleson opened the season in a strong-side platoon role, but he's lost his grip on a regular spot in the lineup versus right-handed pitching in the wake of Lars Nootbaar's return from the 10-day injured list last week. The 25-year-old will find himself on the bench Wednesday for a sixth consecutive game.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: On bench Wednesday

    Burleson is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Padres.

    Burleson is absent from the lineup while St. Louis faces a right-hander (Joe Musgrove) on Wednesday, but the 25-year-old should still play fairly regularly against righties for the early part of the season until the Cardinals get two of Lars Nootbaar (rib), Dylan Carlson (shoulder) and Tommy Edman (wrist) back from the injured list. While Burleson takes a seat Wednesday, Willson Contreras will get a day off behind the dish and will serve as St. Louis' designated hitter.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Garners start at DH

    Burleson will serve as the Cardinals' designated hitter and No. 6 batter in Thursday's season opener against the Dodgers.

    The Cardinals have been hamstrung by injuries, but Burleson also earned a spot in the Opening Day lineup with a .988 OPS this spring. At least to start the season, the lefty-hitting Burleson looks to have earned the strong side of a platoon role at designated hitter over fellow lefty hitter Matt Carpenter.
