Sun, 09 Aug 2015 08:43:42 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 9. C Tony Cruz is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Molina ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Sunday. While he has a .270 batting average over his past 20 games, Molina has just two runs and six RBI to show for it. You likely can do better in the majority of seasonal leagues. Cruz ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a fantasy afterthought and should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore Sunday.

Cruz ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has received just 28 plate appearances this season, so FantasyScore players should view him as nothing more than a desperation flier behind the plate.
