Los Angeles Dodgers DFS SPIN
Justin Turner went 3-for-6 with two runs scored and an RBI against the Padres on Friday. Turner stayed red-hot with another multi-hit game and is off to one of his best starts of his career with a .440/.482/.800 slash line through 56 plate appearances. The 36-year-old third baseman had a key hit in the ninth inning with an RBI single off of Mark Melancon to put the Dodgers up by one run before the Padres tied the game in the bottom of the frame.
San Diego Padres DFS SPIN
Fernando Tatis Jr. went 1-for-6 with a solo home run against the Dodgers on Friday. Tatis Jr. took Walker Buehler deep in the fifth inning with a ball that left the bat at 106.1 miles per hour to put the Padres up 2-1. The 22-year-old superstar shortstop was making his return from the injured list after suffering a scary left shoulder subluxation on April 5. He's batting .167 through just 27 plate appearances and it remains to be seen how the injury will effect his season-long production or his ability to stay on the field.
