Kansas City Royals Fantasy Spin

Hunter Dozier hit a two-run double in Sunday's win over the Angels. Dozier capped a three-run third inning with a two-RBI double against Angels starter Tyler Skaggs, his ninth double of the year. He's now got 28 RBI to go with nine homers and 22 runs scored. Dozier's gone a little cold recently, going 7-for-38 in his last 10 games, but his early surge still has his line at a respectable .303/.398/.574 overall.

St. Louis Cardinals Fantasy Spin

Paul DeJong had a double and three RBI in Sunday's loss to the Rangers. DeJong delivered a big hit in the first inning when he smacked a two-run double off Rangers starter Drew Smyly. It was his only hit on the afternoon, but he came through again in the 10th inning with a sacrifice fly that gave the Cardinals a fleeting lead. The shortstop has been one of the biggest pleasant surprises to date, batting .320/.408/.562 while primarily hitting between Paul Goldschmidt and Marcell Ozuna in the Cards' lineup. It's a sweet gig, one that should continue to yield good counting stats, even if regresses from his terrific average and OPS.
