Paul DeJong Drives In Three On Monday

St. Louis Cardinals shortstop Paul DeJong drove in three runs on Monday, helping the Cardinals beat their cross-state opponents, the Kansas City Royals. DeJong ended up 1-for-3 with a run scored, a walk, and the three RBI. DeJong's hit was a double, just his second of the year. He's hitting just .208 with a .702 OPS, but DeJong can get on hot streaks and temporarily resemble the best player in baseball. He's worth owning and starting just in case this is the start of a tear.

Paul DeJong Gets Activated Sunday, Back In Starting Lineup

St. Louis Cardinals shortstop Paul DeJong is returning to the starting nine Sunday against Cincinnati, a day earlier than projected. DeJong has been out of the mix since July 29 due to a positive COVID-19 test and prior to his absence, he went 4-for-17 at the plate with one home run. His activation brings the Cardinals as close to having their regular lineup as theyve had in nearly a month, with Tommy Edman likely to be bumped off of the shortstop spot. DeJong is a medium-sized season-long fantasy asset with some considerable upside, as well as being an intriguing DFS play Sunday against right-hander Tyler Mahle.

Paul DeJong Expected To Return To Lineup Monday

St. Louis Cardinals shortstop Paul DeJong has been out of the lineup since July 29 due to a positive COVID-19 test, but his stint on the sidelines appears set to end Monday, which is the tentative date for him to get back in the lineup. DeJong will work out at the clubs alternate training site through the weekend, but owners can expect to have his bat back for the series against Kansas City. The sample size is minute, but DeJong has scalded the ball in the five games that he has played this year, producing a 93.8 MPH average exit velocity in addition to a .330 wOBA. He should be owned out of the gates in all season-long formats except those with fewer than 10 teams.
