With the Cardinals placing Tyler O'Neill (groin strain) on the injured list Sunday, Austin Dean drew the start in left field and went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI in a loss to the Brewers.
Dean also homered on Saturday as well. In 106 career games entering Sunday, Dean owns a lifetime .223 AVG and .668 OPS, so he's not a recommended add in standard leagues for the time being. In deeper 15+ team formats, however, he may be worth a look in the short-term if you need an outfielder while O'Neill is out.

The Cardinals reserve outfielder recorded his first hits, home run, and RBI of the young season and could see an increase in playing time in the short-term depending on the severity of O'Neill's injury. The owner of a career .219 AVG and .652 OPS entering the day, Dean can be left on waiver wires for now.
