St Louis Cardinals vs Washington Nationals 3/21/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The St. Louis Cardinals will meet with the Washington Nationals in MLB action in FITTEAM Ballpark of the Palm Beaches West Palm Beach, FL, on Monday, March 21, 2022, at 6:05 PM ET.

 

On Nov. 29, the team acquired starter Steven Matz, a much-needed left-handed pitcher who regained his footing in recent years. He’ll likely be the No. 3 or 4 starter in a lineup that includes Jack Flaherty, Adam Wainwright, Dakota Hudson, Miles Mikolas, and a slew of other names vying for a spot in the rotation.

 

T.J. Rivera was also re-signed by the Cardinals. Early in the summer, McFarland signed Yadier Molina and Adam Wainwright to one-year contracts for 2022 during the regular season.

 

St. Louis would benefit from adding another hitter to their lineup, perhaps a left-handed power bat. Former Cubs slugger Kyle Schwarber, as well as Joc Pederson, might be intriguing fits following their disastrous 2021 season. Otherwise, improvements may have to be kept to a minimum.

 

  • The Cardinals are 2-3 in their last 5 matches.
  • St. Louis is 19-18 in their road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 14 of the Cardinals’ 34 last matches at home.

St Louis Cardinals vs Washington Nationals Predictions 3/21/2022

 

This summer, the Nationals already tackled infield problems. In early October, they re-acquired veteran Alcides Escobar to a one-year deal, giving them a reliable option at shortstop, second base, and third base.

 

In late November, they also signed former AL Gold Glove Award recipient César Hernández to a one-year agreement. He played the same infield positions as Escobar and has roughly 200 innings in center field to his belt. The Nationals are also busy signing former big leaguers to Minor League contracts. 

 

On the 40-man roster, there are two openings. Infielder Lucius Fox and pitcher Francisco Perez were grabbed off waivers by the Nationals. The Nationals released the first baseman Mike Ford, as well as right-handers Ryne Harper and Wander Suero, to make room.

 

A trio of right-handed pitchers who were injured last season should help the Nationals’ pitching rotation in 2022. After being limited by injury for the second year in a row, Stephen Strasburg (thoracic outlet syndrome) had a season-ending operation in July.

 

  • The Nationals are 4-1 in their last 5 matches.
  • Washington is 13-17 in their road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 10 of the Nationals’ 39 last matches at home.

St. Louis Cardinals vs Washington Nationals. The MLB pick for this game is the Washington Nationals. Lane Thomas took over as the regular center fielder last season, and Victor Robles was pitched to Triple-A in late August.

 

The Nationals stated that Robles is a part of their future plans, although it is unclear if he will be a starter. The starting left-field spot is up for grabs, and Andrew Stevenson and Yadiel Hernandez are among the candidates. The Washington Nationals will win to a predicted score of 6-4.
