San Francisco Giants DFS SPIN

Brandon Belt went 1-for-4 with two RBI and a walk against the Rockies on Wednesday. Belt broke things open in the second inning with a two-run base hit off of German Marquez to put the Giants up 4-0. He later drew a walk in the eighth inning, his 12th walk of the season. The 33-year-old first baseman is slashing .219/.338/.453 with four home runs through 77 plate appearances following Wednesday's action.

San Diego Padres DFS SPIN

Wil Myers was a late scratch from the Padres' lineup on Wednesday due to COVID-19 contact tracing. An unnamed Padres player tested positive for COVID-19 just before the Padres' series finale against the Diamondbacks, so look for a transaction heading into Friday night's series opener versus the Giants. Myers wound up pinch-hitting in the eighth inning Wednesday, so he obviously wasn't the positive case.
