Arizona Diamondbacks Fantasy Spin

Ketel Marte went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer to lead the Diamondbacks to a 4-2 win over the Cardinals on Friday. Marte plated a pair of key insurance runs with a two-run homer off Cardinals relief ace John Gant in the eighth inning. It was his 21st round-tripper of the season and his lone hit of the contest in four at-bats. The 25-year-old outfielder has evolved into a true five-category fantasy superstar and is on the periphery of the first-round discussion right now. He's hitting .310/.358/.564 with 59 runs scored, 55 RBI and four stolen bases in 388 plate appearances.

St. Louis Cardinals Fantasy Spin

Matt Wieters launched a solo homer and walked in the Cardinals’ loss to the Diamondbacks on Friday. Wieters provided the Cardinals lone extra-base hit of the contest with a line-drive solo blast to right field off Diamondbacks starter Robbie Ray in the fifth inning. He also drew a two-out walk in the ninth inning to bring the tying run to the plate, but it wasn't enough. The 33-year-old backstop has filled in admirably for Yadier Molina recently and is now up to six long balls in just 93 plate appearances.
