St. Louis Cardinals DFS Spin

Nolan Arenado hit a solo homer in a loss to the Cubs on Saturday. Arenado gave the Cardinals a 1-0 lead with a solo homer in the second off Kyle Hendricks. It'd be one of just two runs that St. Louis would be able to score off the right-hander. The 30-year-old has gone deep 12 times, and he's driven in 44 runs. That on top of the .286/.335/.522 have made this a strong first six weeks as a member of the Cards.

Chicago Cubs DFS Spin

Sergio Alcantara went 1-for-3 with a homer on Saturday in a win over the Cardinals. Alcantara also drew a walk and scored another run in addition to hitting his second homer of the season. The 24-year-old has only appeared in 13 games, but they've gone well as seen in his .310 average and 1.137 OPS. That's not sustainable, but those looking for help in the middle infield might want to take a closer look while he's getting time with Chicago.
