Cardinals' Paul DeJong: Slugs 30th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeJong went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a loss to the Cubs on Saturday.

DeJong got to the 30-homer threshold with his 416-foot solo shot in the eighth, his third round tripper over the last six contests. The power-hitting shortstop is scuffling outside of the big blasts in September, however, as he's hitting just .179 (17-for-95) since the calendar flipped from August.

Cardinals' Paul DeJong: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeJong is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

DeJong will join a slew of starters on the bench Wednesday after playing all 19 innings during Tuesday's 3-2 loss, going 1-for-7 with a walk and two strikeouts. In his place, Yairo Munoz is starting at shortstop and hitting seventh.

Cardinals' Paul DeJong: Goes deep again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeJong went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in a win over the Cubs on Sunday.

DeJong made a notable contribution to the postseason-clinching win, knocking a 437-foot shot to left in the third to erase an early 1-0 deficit. The slugging shortstop isn't finding much success during a tough September at the plate (.195 average), yet eight (three doubles, five homers) of his 15 hits on the month have gone for extra bases, leading to a solid 12 RBI.

Cardinals' Paul DeJong: Bombs game-winning homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeJong went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a 9-8 win over the Cubs on Saturday.

DeJong crushed his 28th long ball of the campaign in the ninth inning off Craig Kimbrel to go back-to-back with Yadier Molina and put the Cardinals back in front 9-8. The 26-year-old shortstop is hitting just .189 (14-for-74) in September, but his 11 RBI this month have still allowed him to set a career high at 76 for the season.

Cardinals' Paul DeJong: Leaves yard in narrow loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeJong went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a loss to the Brewers on Sunday.

DeJong connected on his 27th blast of the campaign in the seventh with Marcell Ozuna aboard to erase a 2-1 deficit at the time. The slugging shortstop is hitting just .204 (11-for-54) in September, but the nine runs he's driven in during the month have pushed him to a career-high 74 RBI on the campaign.

Cardinals' Paul DeJong: Rare two-steal game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeJong went 0-for-4 with two stolen bases and a run in a win over the Rockies on Thursday.

While he didn't partake in the Cardinals' offensive breakout -- in fact, DeJong was the only St. Louis starting position player that didn't hit safely in the contest -- the shortstop made a nice contribution for fantasy managers on the basepaths. Having come into 2019 with just one stolen base apiece in each of his first two big-league seasons, DeJong now has nine swipes on 14 attempts during the current campaign. Coupled with similar career-best marks in doubles (30) , home runs (26) and RBI (72), it's mostly been a banner season for the 26-year-old that even his career-high 127 strikeouts can't sully, considering he's still managed to drop his actual strikeout rate a full four percentage points from last season's 25.2.

Cardinals' Paul DeJong: Plates two more in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeJong went 1-for-4 with a two-run double, a stolen base and a run in a win over the Pirates on Saturday.

DeJong's seventh-inning two-bagger plated Marcell Ozuna and Kolten Wong to extend the Cardinals' lead to 8-1. The slugging shortstop has hit safely in six consecutive games and already has seven RBI over eight September games thanks in part to a pair of home runs in addition to Saturday's double.

Cardinals' Paul DeJong: Goes yard again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeJong went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run Thursday against the Giants.

DeJong took Logan Webb deep in the first inning to record his 26th homer of the season. He's now homered in consecutive starts, the latter of which helped him set a new career-best mark for homers in a season. Though he's hit under .230 since the All-Star break, DeJong has still managed to post 13 home runs with 34 RBI and 33 runs scored across 50 games.

September 5, 2019 01:28 AM
Cardinals' Paul DeJong: Smacks 25th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeJong went 2-for-5 with a solo home run Wednesday against the Giants.

DeJong tied his career-high mark for home runs in a season when he took Madison Bumgarner deep in the fourth inning for his 25th long ball of the campaign. While pedestrian in most other categories, DeJong has proven to be a reliable source of power through three major-league seasons by posting a .470 slugging percentage across 1,504 plate appearances. He'll look to end the season on a positive note, though he's hit just .226 in 50 games since the All-Star break.

Cardinals' Paul DeJong: Not in lineup for matinee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeJong is out of the lineup for Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Reds.

DeJong started both games of Saturday's doubleheader and will sit Sunday's matinee after going 1-for-8 with a double, a run scored and an RBI. Yairo Munoz will start at shortstop and bat eighth in his absence.

Cardinals' Paul DeJong: Launches 24th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeJong went 1-for-2 with a homer, three RBI, two runs scored and two walks in Monday's 12-2 win over the Brewers.

DeJong's sixth-inning blast gives him 24 this season, one away from matching the career-high 25 he hit as a rookie in 2017. He later knocked a sacrifice fly to score Tommy Edman in the eighth. The 26-year-old shortstop owns a .248/.331/.462 slash line with 64 RBI and 84 runs scored.

Cardinals' Paul DeJong: Records 23rd homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeJong went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run Thursday against the Rockies.

DeJong made the most of his lone hit of the contest, as he took German Marquez deep in the sixth inning for his 23rd homer of the season. Despite struggling to hit for a respectable average for the majority of the season, DeJong's power has remained consistent as he is on track to hit at least five home runs for the third consecutive month. The 26-year-old is hitting .247/.326/.460 across 519 plate appearances for the campaign.

Cardinals' Paul DeJong: Smacks solo shot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeJong went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in a win over the Brewers on Monday.

DeJong closed out the scoring on the night with his sixth-inning solo blast, his third homer in the last six games. The shortstop's .246/.323/.457 line is a serviceable one, but for the second consecutive season, it appears DeJong will disappointingly fall way short of the promising .285 average and .532 slugging percentage he managed during his rookie 2017 campaign.

Cardinals' Paul DeJong: Out of lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeJong is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Reds.

This is a bit of an eyebrow raiser considering DeJong homered again Friday, his second homer in three games, but to this point there has been no mention of an injury. Consider it a breather for now. Yairo Munoz will start at shortstop and bat eighth against right-hander Anthony DeSclafani.

Cardinals' Paul DeJong: Smacks 21st round tripper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeJong went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in a win over the Reds on Friday.

DeJong launched one of four homers on the night for the hot-hitting Cardinals, marking the second time he's left the yard in the last three games. The 26-year-old has hits in eight of 13 games this month, slightly improving his fortunes after hitting just .205 in July.

Cardinals' Paul DeJong: Launches 20th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeJong went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and another run scored in Wednesday's 6-0 win over the Royals.

DeJong crushed a 432-foot homer off Josh Staumont in the eighth inning. The long ball was his 20th of the season, as the 26-year-old became the first Cardinals shortstop to produce multiple 20-home run campaigns. Factoring in Tuesday's production, DeJong is batting .250/.328/.454 with 76 runs scored and 54 RBI this season.

Cardinals' Paul DeJong: Slugs 19th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeJong went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a loss to the Athletics on Sunday.

DeJong went down on strikes in his other three at-bats, but he extended a modest hitting streak to three games by launching a 418-foot shot to left in the fourth inning off Tanner Roark to open the scoring for either club. DeJong is now 6-for-12 with a double, Sunday's round tripper and two RBI over his first three games of August.

Cardinals' Paul DeJong: Stays hot in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeJong went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in a loss to the Athletics on Saturday.

If the first two games of August are any indication, DeJong may be in for a resurgent month at the plate. With his second straight multi-hit outing Saturday, the formerly slumping shortstop is 5-for-8 with a double, an RBI and two runs in the two games he's played since the calendar flipped. The quick surge has already given an eight-point boost to his batting average, which had sunk to .247 as a result of a month of July when he hit just .205.

Cardinals' Paul DeJong: Emerges from slump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeJong went 3-for-4 with a double and two runs in a win over the Cubs on Thursday.

DeJong has been prone to both multi-game skids and some rather spectacular performances during his roller-coaster 2019, and he broke out of another funk -- he'd gone 1-for-20 in the six games subsequent to his three-homer effort versus the Pirates on July 24 -- in fine fashion Thursday. It was DeJong's first multi-hit effort since the aforementioned power display, and it got the new month off to a strong start after he limped to a .205 average in July.

Cardinals' Paul DeJong: Blasts three homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeJong went 4-for-4 with three home runs, a double, five RBI and four runs in a 14-8 victory against the Pirates on Wednesday.

The third homer he hit came against a position player, but DeJong was just mashing everything that was in the strike zone Wednesday. This was his second four-hit game of the season, but the first time he went 4-for-4 and the first three-homer game of his career. DeJong is hitting .258 with 18 home runs, 49 RBI, 68 runs and six steals in 376 at-bats this season.
