Updates & News
St. Louis Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter, CL Trevor Rosenthal and OF Oscar Taveras arrived to camp early Tuesday, Feb. 11.
The Cardinals as a whole will be trying to get that bitter taste out of their mouths after losing in the World Series to the Red Sox a season ago and these three players are a little anxious. Both Carpenter and Rosenthal are going to have immediate fantasy impacts this season, while Taveras is slated to be a call-up at some point later in the season. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
George Springer went 2-for-4 with a double and one RBI in the Astros 6-2 loss to the Tigers on Friday.
Springer has now collected two hits in three straight games which has helped raise his average from .195 to .214 on the season. A concussion sidelined Springer in early May but he has played well since his return, hitting .282 with six runs, two home runs and four RBI. Fantasy owners will have to deal with the low batting average as Springer is once again on pace to rank among the league leaders in strikeouts but he’s already reached double-digit stole bases and could flirt with a 30/30 season given his potential.
