St. Louis Cardinals Fantasy Spin
Matt Carpenter went 1-for-3 with an RBI and a walk in the Cardinals' loss to the Dodgers on Tuesday. Carpenter was responsible for the Cardinals' lone run of the contest thanks to an RBI single off Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw in the second inning. The 33-year-old veteran has been limited to only seven games since late-June due to back and foot issues. It's difficult to justify keeping him around on standard mixed-league rosters at this point in the season.
Los Angeles Dodgers Fantasy Spin
Justin Turner went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a walk to lead the Dodgers to a 3-1 victory over the Cardinals on Tuesday. Turner reached base safely in three of his four plate appearances. He put the Dodgers ahead with an RBI double to right field off Cardinals starter Miles Mikolas in the third inning. He also walked in the first and singled in the fifth. The 34-year-old third baseman is hitting .291/.372/.485 with 66 runs scored, 17 home runs, 50 RBI and a pair of stolen bases in 430 plate appearances.
