Atlanta Braves Fantasy Spin

Ronald Acuña Jr. hit a two-run double in the top of the ninth inning to give the Braves an 8-7 victory over the Indians on Saturday in game two of a doubleheader. Before the double, it was a miserable game for Acuña Jr. He was 0-for-4, and three of those outs were strikeouts. With two outs and the bases loaded with Atlanta trailing 7-6, Acuña Jr. was able to pick up a two-run extra-base hit that gave the Braves the lead and ultimately the victory. He's hitting .300/.430/.614 to begin the year, and while those numbers will obviously see a bit of regression, it might be small. He's a special talent.

Cleveland Indians Fantasy Spin

Francisco Lindor went 1-for-5 with a run scored in a loss to the Braves on Saturday in game two of a doubleheader. Lindor sat the first game of the doubleheader, but was hitting atop the lineup for the Indians in the second contest. He singled in the second inning, and he came around to score on a single by Jose Ramirez. There might be some kinks to iron out, but Lindor is one of the best shortstops in baseball, and should be scoring runs, hitting homers and stealing bases for the Indians in no time.
