Toronto Blue Jays DFS SPIN
Matt Chapman hit an RBI single Sunday in the Blue Jays' loss to the Reds. Chapman hasn't made a significant impact this season in his Blue Jays debut, hitting .193/.274/.364 with six homers in 157 plate appearances. The 29-year-old third baseman remains an elite defender at the hot corner, but his days as a valuable four-category fantasy contributor appear to be in the past.
St. Louis Cardinals DFS Spin
Albert Pujols went 2-for-3 with a pair of homers and four RBI against the Pirates on Sunday. Pujols pinch-hit for Nolan Arenado in the fifth inning and took over as designated hitter with the Cardinals already ahead by 11 runs. The 42-year-old slugged a homer in his first at-bat, then went deep again in the ninth for a three-run shot. Pujols is up to four homers with a .231/.333/.446 slash line across 65 at-bats.
