  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Fills stat sheet in win

    Burleson went 3-for-4 with two home runs, five RBI, three runs scored and a stolen base in a 9-4 win over the Giants on Saturday.

    Burleson singled and scored in the first and then walked and stole a base in the third. The real damage came in his next two at-bats, as he hit a three-run home run in the fourth frame and a two-run blast in the sixth. This was the first two-homer game of Burleson's major-league career, and he now has six multi-hit efforts and seven home runs in June. The 25-year-old has been a steady source of production this season, hitting .281 with 12 home runs, 30 RBI and three steals over 235 at-bats.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Clubs homer No. 10

    Burleson went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and a second run scored in Tuesday's 9-8 extra-inning loss to the Marlins.

    The 25-year-old's shot off Roddery Munoz in the fourth inning was the third of three long balls by the Cardinals on the night, but the offense managed only one more run after that. Burleson is up to 10 homers on the season, and five of them have come in June. Despite the power surge, however, he's slashing just .254/.286/.507 in 70 plate appearances this month, and has produced just seven RBI.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Taking seat versus lefty

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

    After starting in each of the Cardinals' last 29 games, Burleson will finally get a break in the series opener in Miami. With southpaw Braxton Garrett on the bump for Miami, Cardinals skipper Oliver Marmol likely viewed it as an opportune time to give the lefty-hitting Burleson a day off. Dylan Carlson will step in for Burleson in right field.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Racks up three hits in loss

    Burleson went 3-for-4 in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Pirates.

    There wasn't much for the hitters early in this contest, but Burleson was able to account for two of the five runs on Pittsburgh starter Paul Skenes' line. Through 10 games in June, Burleson is batting .286 (12-for-42) with five extra-base hits. He continues to be consistent for the Cardinals with a .283/.314/.455 slash line, nine home runs, 24 RBI, 20 runs scored and two stolen bases over 58 contests this season. Four of his homers have come in June.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Homers in Sunday's win

    Burleson went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Rockies.

    Burleson is up to nine homers this year, four of which he's hit over nine contests in June. He's batting .237 (9-for-38) this month, but that slight drop in hitting has yet to cost him the everyday role he earned with a strong May. The outfielder is slashing .273/.305/.448 with 24 RBI, 20 runs scored, two stolen bases and seven doubles over 203 plate appearances on the year, and he's routinely batted second in the order over the last week.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Goes yard again

    Burleson went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk in Tuesday's 8-5 loss to the Astros.

    Burleson's gone deep in three straight games after a stretch of 12 contests without a homer. He continues to look ready for an everyday role, which has come at a convenient time with the Cardinals missing Lars Nootbaar (oblique) and Tommy Edman (wrist). Burleson is up to a .276/.308/.448 slash line with eight homers, 22 RBI, 17 runs scored, two stolen bases and six doubles over 182 plate appearances this season.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Homers in back-to-back games

    Burleson went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Monday's 7-4 loss to the Astros.

    This was Burleson's second straight game with a homer after he went 12 contests without one. The 25-year-old is up to seven homers through 51 contests in 2024, one long ball shy of matching his total from 107 games last year. He's added a reliable .271/.299/.429 slash line with 21 RBI, 16 runs scored and two stolen bases over 177 plate appearances.

  • Cardinals' Alec Burleson: Snaps slump with homer

    Burleson went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 5-4 extra-inning win over the Phillies.

    Burleson entered Sunday 0-for-17 over his last four games. He ended the drought -- his longest of the season -- with a third-inning blast to put the Cardinals ahead 4-2. Burleson has been forced into a larger role with the Cardinals lacking several starters, including Lars Nootbaar (oblique), who is expected to be out for nearly all of June. Burleson is slashing .273/.302/.418 with six homers, 20 RBI, 15 runs scored and two stolen bases over 50 contests and should have a chance to continue playing on a near-everyday basis for the foreseeable future.

  • 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.
