Moss went 2-for-5 with a pair of homers and three RBI in a loss against the Mets on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

The Cards were getting blown out by a 7-0 tally, but soon after Mets starter Seth Lugo left the game with five scoreless innings and a calf cramp, Moss narrowed the gap with a two-run homer, sparking a late rally; he went on to complement that with a solo shot two innings later. He's been providing a pretty hefty dose of power for fantasy owners lately, having homered seven times with 13 RBI and 11 runs over the last 12 games.

Moss (illness) is back in the lineup Saturday against the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

The Cardinals were forced to scratch Moss on Friday as he was under the weather, but apparently he's feeling better already, well enough to return to the lineup anyway. Moss has hit five home runs since his early-August return from the DL, bringing his total on the season to 22. He still has a chance to approach his career-high of 30 home runs established in 2013.

Moss (undisclosed) was scratched from Friday's lineup.

EDGE Analysis

The Cardinals have yet to announce the reason behind Moss being scratched Friday, but the fact of the matter is that Matt Carpenter will be sliding over to first base and Yadier Molina will bat cleanup in Moss' place. A further update on Moss' status figures to be made available before first pitch of Friday's contest.

Moss was activated from the DL earlier on Tuesday, and came back with a 3-for-5 and a home run effort in a late 7-5 loss against the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Moss showed no effects of the ankle injury that held him out for most of July, hitting his 18th homer of the season in his first game back. Moss played left field, right field, and first base over the course of the game, and has split time pretty evenly across those positions over the course of the season. The Cardinals did not make any splashy additions to their lineup at the trade deadline, so it looks as though Moss will be a centerpiece of the Cardinals lineup moving forward.

The Cardinals have activated Moss from the disabled list on Tuesday, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Moss, who has been on the DL since July 5, will rejoin the Cardinals first base and outfield rotations. In a separate move, Randall Grichuk was sent back to Triple-A Memphis, making room for Moss to get playing time for St. Louis. Moss played in three rehab games for Double-A Springfield, collecting zero hits in eight at-bats.

Moss (ankle) could return as early as next Tuesday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports

EDGE Analysis

Moss has played in just one game on his rehab assignment at Double-A Springfield, so a Tuesday return is not set in stone at this point. Moss went 0-for-3 in his first game, however, he's been out since July 5, so it's only natural that he'll need a few games to get his timing back.

Moss (ankle) is unlikely to return to the team Wednesday, despite becoming eligible, Nick Krueger of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

After spraining his left ankle on July 5, Moss has been in a walking boot and receiving daily treatment, but despite progress he is still not ready to return to baseball activities. He will likely need a rehab assignment once he's healthy, so he will remain out for some time still.

Moss has been placed on the disabled list with a sprained left ankle, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is the first we've heard of the injury, but Moss is apparently dealing with a relatively severe sprain, as players typically get a few days to monitor an injury before a DL placement. The Cardinals' leading home run hitter, who's batting .251 on the year, won't be available until after the All-Star break, and the team recalled Randall Grichuk from Triple-A to take his place on the roster.

Updating a previous report, Moss will will start in right field Monday against the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

Moss was initially scheduled to sit Monday with southpaw Jon Niese on the mound for Pittsburgh, but the late scratch of outfielder Tommy Pham forced a lineup adjustment. Pham had been scheduled to play center field, but Stephen Piscotty will play there instead, making room for Moss in right. Moss is hitting just .186 against southpaws this season, but is 2-for-7 with a double in his career against Niese.
