Lorenzo Cain went 3-for-4 with a stolen base Saturday against Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact: Cain was activated from the injured list Tuesday, and has started every game since. The veteran outfielder will look to get his season back on track after a hamstring injury forced a lengthy absence. He's batting .252 with three homers and five steals.

Brandon Woodruff (7-6) took the loss Saturday against Atlanta, allowing three runs on eight hits and one walk across 5.1 innings. He struck out six.

Fantasy Impact: Woodruff was not at his sharpest Saturday night; he was primarily victimized by Dansby Swanson, who tagged him for an RBI single and a two-run homer. Woodruff has been excellent this season, so it's safe to chalk this start up as a 'bump in the road.' Overall, he holds a 2.26 ERA, 0.88 WHIP, and a 152:32 K:BB across 131.1 innings this season. He'll face the Giants next in a tough matchup.
