Playing out of the DH spot, Mike Trout went 3-for-8 with a home run, two RBI, two runs scored and walk against the Red Sox on Saturday.
Trout ended an 0-for-10 slump in Saturday's marathon game, and is now slashing .299/.387/.575 with 26 home runs and 84 RBI on the season Although his stolen base production is down this season (12 SB), now that he is maturing into more of a power hitter in the two-hole, there aren't going to be as many opportunities for him as we have seen in the past. Either way he is still arguably the best fantasy option moving forward. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Diamondbacks are having internal discussions about whether to pursue Jarrod Saltalamacchia.
Salty has been god awful so far this season, and the Marlins feel comfortable going forward with J.T. Realmuto as their starting catcher. They decided to designate him for assignment, giving the Diamondbacks a chance to go after the veteran catcher. Going to Arizona wouldn't do much for his fantasy value besides for having him remain in the big leagues, so unless he somehow turns it around and gets a deal worked out with the D-Backs, punt on Saltalamacchia.
