Jarrod Saltalamacchia finished Tuesday night 0-for-5 with three strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact: Saltalamacchia's terrible pace continues, as he is now hitting just .091 and has more strikeouts (8) than games played (7). Once a sleeper catcher in some fantasy formats, Saltalamacchia has lost all relevancy in the online game.
