VENUE: Miller Park, Milwaukee, WI
Los Angeles Dodgers DFS SPIN
Chris Taylor tripled in a run and walked twice Wednesday against the Reds. Gavin Lux is back to get the majority of the time at second base, but Taylor should retain some mixed-league value for now. He's hitting .264/.398/.542 with four homers and two steals in 72 at-bats.
Milwaukee Brewers DFS SPIN
Eric Lauer will be called up to start Thursday night against the Dodgers. Alec Bettinger will also be promoted to work in relief. Lauer struggled mightily in the Cactus League this spring and yielded 16 earned runs over 11 innings last season for an ERA of 13.09, but the Brewers are desperate for back-end rotation depth with Brett Anderson (hamstring) and Zack Godley (finger) both now on the IL.

On the other side, the under is 11-3-2 in the Brewers’ last 16 games following a loss and is 5-2 in their last seven games versus a right-handed starter.
