Luis Sardinas finished 3-for-5 with an RBI, two runs scored, and a stolen base on Wednesday afternoon. Sardinas is 11-for-24 with a double, triple, four RBI, and six runs scored over the last seven days. He has a .662 OPS this season.
Sardinas has received playing time since coming over from the Mariners in August and now has five multi-hit games in his last eight games. It is far to say that Sardinas is a must-start player, but if you are in need of a player to fill a gap in the playoff race or a cheap option in DFS, you can do much worse.
Luis Sardinas got the start at third base on Saturday and went 1-for-4.
Sardinas got the start for the struggling Kyle Seager with a left-handed starter on the mound. Sardinas did not fare much better than Seager has lately, but it was a much needed day off for Seager. Sardinas is just 22 years old but is proving to be a valuable utility infielder for the Mariners.
Luis Sardinas will replace Ketel Marte at shortstop on Tueday's game against the Rangers.
Sardinas will bat second in the order and has a solid match up against Rangers starter Derek Holland. Sardinas hit well in the Spring and won a utility backup role because of it. If you want to save money in DFS leagues, you could do worse than Sardinas.
Luis Sardinas would come on as a pinch-hitter for Dae-Ho Lee and ended up getting a couple of at-bats. He went 1-for-2 with a home run, two RBI, and a run scored.
Sardinas played extremely well in the Spring both at the plate and on defense. He is the ultimate utility infielder as he can play every spot other than catcher. He is just 22 years old and could end up pushing Lee out as the primary backup to Adam Lind. If an injury occurs to the Mariners infield, do not be afraid to pick up Sardinas right away.
