St. Louis Cardinals DFS SPIN

Yadier Molina was removed from Friday's game against the Reds due to neck stiffness. Molina felt his neck stiffen up as he was taking swings in the batting cage prior to his final at-bat, prompting manager Mike Shildt to have Adam Wainwright hit for him. For now, it sounds like a minor issue and something that should be considered day-to-day, but pay close attention to his status on Saturday.

Kyle Farmer homered while going 3-for-4 on Friday in a victory over the Cardinals. Farmer homered for the eighth time on the season, and it was a solo blast off Wade LeBlanc that gave the Reds a 3-2 lead in the fourth. Farmer has been a big helper with the glove, but the .255/.303/.364 slash is a pretty good indicator of what to expect offensively.
