St. Louis Cardinals Fantasy Spin
Paul Goldschmidt went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer and two walks on Friday in the Cardinals' 9-4 victory over the Giants. Goldschmidt's homer was a no-doubter to centerfield with a runner on in the first inning off of Drew Pomeranz, and it gave the Cardinals a 3-0 lead with his 15th round-tripper of the year. The two walks help increase his on-base percentage to .342, and his slugging mark ups to .418 with the homer. There's no denying this has been a disappointing first half of the season for Goldschmidt, but we have every reason to believe he'll be back to providing elite production over the second part of the season.
San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin
Alex Dickerson went 2-for-4 with a homer on Friday in a loss to the Cardinals. Dickerson launched his fourth homer of the season with a solo shot off of Dakota Hudson. He also singled, and he's now hitting .357 with a 1.211 OPS over his 14 games with the Giants. These numbers aren't even remotely sustainable, but Dickerson has shown flashes of offensive upside before, and he's going to get a chance to play for the rebuilding Giants. There are worse upside plays, to be sure.
