Chicago Cubs DFS SPIN

Ryan Tepera's suspension for throwing at Brewers pitcher Brandon Woodruff has been reduced from three games to two, which he will begin serving on Sunday. The reduction is a bit of a surprise considering Tepera openly admitted to throwing at Woodruff intentionally. Either way, the right-hander will begin serving his two-game suspension immediately.

Atlanta Braves DFS SPIN

Freddie Freeman went 1-for-3 with a single in the Braves' shutout loss to the Diamondbacks in the first game of Sunday's seven-inning doubleheader. Freeman supplied the lone hit for the Braves in the opening game of Sunday's twin-billing, breaking up Zac Gallen's no-hit bit with a one-out single in the sixth inning. The 31-year-old first baseman has gotten off to an extremely slow start at the plate, slashing .214/.368/.457 with 10 runs scored, five homers, 10 RBI and one stolen base across 87 plate appearances.

The Braves, meanwhile, are 4-1 in their last five games versus the National League Central, are 5-2 in their last seven games overall and have cashed in 57 of their last 83 games as a home favorite.
