Tony Cruz belts first home run of season

The Cardinals used the long ball in defeating the Diamondbacks on Thursday by the score of 5-3. Tony Cruz hit one of the two home runs, connecting on his first of the season in the second inning. It was his only hit in four at-bats and he's now batting .181 for the season.

Fantasy Impact:

Cruz got a rare start behind the plate in place of Yadier Molina. Cruz has just three extra-base hits in 83 at-bats. His on-base percentage and slugging percentage are both under .250. Combine that with very little playing time and Cruz has virtually no fantasy value, but his home run was worth mentioning.
