St. Louis Cardinals Fantasy Spin
Jose Martinez went 2-for-4 with a pair of solo home runs in the Cardinals loss to the Mariners on Tuesday. Martinez walloped a towering fly ball to left field off Mariners opener Matt Carasiti in the first inning and followed it up with an opposite-field blast off lefty reliever Wade LeBlanc in the sixth. It was his first multi-homer effort of the season and only the fourth time he’s accomplished the feat in his career. The 30-year-old slugger has turned in a virtual carbon copy of his full-season breakout campaign from last year, hitting .285/.348/.421 with 28 runs scored, 30 RBI and one stolen base in 244 plate appearances. He has a shot at eclipsing the 20-homer plateau if he continues to garner everyday at-bats in St. Louis.
Seattle Mariners Fantasy Spin
Dee Gordon (quad) went 1-for-3 with an RBI, a walk, a stolen base, and a run scored in his return to action Tuesday against the Cardinals. Gordon missed Sunday's series finale against the Astros with a minor right quad issue, but he looked healthy and spry in Tuesday night's series opener versus St. Louis. The 31-year-old is up to 15 steals on the season.

They’re now 1-6 in their last seven games overall and 0-4 in their last four games when facing a right-handed starter. St. Louis has dropped four of Adam Wainwright’s last five starts and is 0-4 in his last four outings on the road, too. Meanwhile, the Mariners have won five of their last six games at home and are 4-1 in their last five home games versus a right-handed starter.
