Paul DeJong hits 17th home run on Saturday

Paul DeJong went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in a win over the Reds on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Fantasy Impact

DeJong was initially in the starting lineup but late scratched due to a tight lower back. The severity of his injury is unknown at this time, and he's considered day-to-day. Edmundo Sosa replaced DeJong in the lineup and will handle shortstop duties on Saturday.

Paul DeJong homers again on Thursday afternoon

Cardinals shortstop Paul DeJong went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in a win over the Pirates on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

DeJong's homer in the fourth inning tied the ballgame for the Cardinals. It was the 16th home run of the season for the veteran shortstop who has hit safely in five of his past six games with a pair of homers in that span. If you play in a deep league and need some power, DeJong has proven in his career to offer solid fantasy value from time-to-time. However, the .204 batting average is a tough pill to swallow.

Paul DeJong drives in a pair with two-run double on Wednesday

Paul DeJong went 2-for-4 with a single, a run scored, and a two-run double in a 4-0 win over Pittsburgh on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

With the Cardinals clinging to a 1-0 lead, DeJong delivered a clutch two-out, two-run double to right-center field in the sixth inning before coming around to score later in the inning. DeJong's two-hit performance got his batting average back above the Mendoza Line (.204) on the season.

Paul DeJong goes deep in win over Pirates on Tuesday

Cardinals shortstop Paul DeJong went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in a win over Pittsburgh on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

DeJong's solo home run in the second inning put the Cardinals up 2-0 in a game that they never trailed. DeJong now has 15 home runs on the season to go along with a disappointing .199 AVG and .678 OPS. Despite some nice power output from time-to-time, DeJong isn't worth rostering while he's hitting below the Mendoza Line.
