San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin
Giants acquired OF Kevin Pillar from the Blue Jays for INF Alen Hanson and RHPs Derek Law and RHP Juan De Paula. The Giants get two years of Pillar while the Blue Jays continue to pave the way for youth. The recent Kendrys Morales trade opened the door Rowdy Tellez while this deal should clear a path for Anthony Alford in the Jays' outfield. Pillar is an excellent defender in center field, but a move to San Francisco is a downgrade from a fantasy perspective. It's unclear yet what the deal means for Steven Duggar, but we figure he'll still play a lot given the alternatives in the Giants' outfield.
Los Angeles Dodgers Fantasy Spin
Chris Taylor went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in a loss to the Giants on Monday. Taylor gave the Dodgers a 1-0 lead when he took a Drew Pomeranz offering deep in the fifth inning. He also singled. Taylor is hitting just .154 on the season even after the two-hit night, but he should get back on track. He's a solid play against southpaws, and his positional versatility makes him a decent bench option in deeper formats.
