Miami Marlins Fantasy Spin

Jordan Yamamoto spun seven innings of scoreless baseball to earn a win over the Cardinals in his major league debut on Wednesday. What a great way to start a career. He fired strikes all evening, surrendering only three knocks and two walks while striking out five in the gem outing. The Cardinals were unable to mount a serious threat against him all night. Yamamoto was called up from Double-A Jacksonville to make this start in place of the injured Jose Urena (back). He clearly pitched well enough to earn himself another start and maybe even a slot in the Marlins' rotation the rest of the way. He had a 3.58 ERA with 64 strikeouts in 65 1/3 innings this year in the minors.

St. Louis Cardinals Fantasy Spin

Paul DeJong went 2-for-4 on Monday with a run scored in a victory over the Marlins.DeJong now has a seven-game hitting streak, and he's improved his average from .269 to .281. He came around to score in the eighth inning on a Dexter Fowler three-run homer. The shortstop also has an .873 OPS, and he has 13 homers and 34 RBI in his 70 games. Solid numbers, for sure, but they're even better when you consider he's providing them at a premium position.
