Philadelphia Phillies Fantasy Spin
Andrew Knapp had a double and three walks, scoring a run in a loss to the Rockies on Sunday. Drawing the start for J.T. Realmuto on Sunday, Knapp didn't represent much of a drop off in reaching base in all four of his plate appearances. He won't play often with Realmuto around, and the 27-year-old is hitting .235/.409/.353 in part-time duty this year.
New York Mets Fantasy Spin
Robinson Cano was seen wearing a soft cast on his injured hand after Sunday's game against the Cardinals and may require additional testing on Monday. Fantasy owners probably thought that they were in the clear after it was announced that Cano's X-rays came back negative, but he may not be out of the woods just yet. Be sure to have a contingency option in place in the event that Cano is forced to miss some time next week.
