Los Angeles Angels Fantasy Spin
Albert Pujols hit a solo homer in the Angels' loss to the Cardinals on Saturday. It's been a while since we've seen Pujols go deep in St. Louis, but it was a familiar feeling to see the future Hall of Famer drive a ball into the left-field bleachers off of Dakota Hudson. He now has 13 homers on the year along with 41 RBI, and he's slashing .233/.308/.449 in his 63 games.
St. Louis Cardinals Fantasy Spin
Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with a run scored on Saturday to help the Cardinals defeat the Angels. Goldschmidt came around to score his run on the Marcell Ozuna homer. The first baseman is starting to swing the bat better after his ugly beginning -- and middle -- of June, but his .260/.349/.432 line with 14 homers and 31 RBI are not the numbers we were expecting at this point from the first baseman. Goldschmidt is just too good for him to not be better in the second half of the season.
