St. Louis Cardinals Fantasy Spin

Tommy Edman broke open a tie game by smacking a grand slam in a 7-4 win over the Reds on Thursday. He cleared the bases by taking reliever Robert Stephenson deep in the sixth inning. A rash of Cardinal injuries has led to steady playing time of late for Edman and he has responded with a bit of pop. He has a .254/.284/.493 stat line with four home runs and 13 RBI in 27 games.

Cincinnati Reds Fantasy Spin

Eugenio Suarez went 1-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in a loss to the Cardinals on Thursday. He popped a solo shot off Dakota Hudson in the first inning -- it was the third time in his last four games that he's hit a home run in the first inning. He drove in another run with a sacrifice fly in the third. Suarez's batting average has taken a bit of a tumble from .283 last year to .246 so far in 2019. He has 24 home runs, 60 RBI and 49 runs scored in 94 games. He is an upper-tier fantasy third baseman.
