Minnesota Twins DFS Notes

Ryan Jeffers went 1-for-5 with a three-run homer on Saturday during the Twins victory over the Cardinals. The blast was Jeffers' ninth of the season in which he is batting .205/.290/.430 over 151 at-bats. The 24-year-old is slugging .810 over the past seven games with three longs balls, but now that Mitch Garver is back it's tough to take advantage in fantasy.

St. Louis Cardinals DFS Notes

Yadier Molina went 2-for-3 on Saturday during the Cardinals' loss to the Twins. The 39-year-old veteran recently missed time with neck stiffness but is now 4-for-11 over the past three games. Molina is carrying a .252/.293/.383 slash line this season with eight home runs, 14 doubles, and 42 RBI over 287 at-bats.
