St. Louis Cardinals DFS SPIN
Nolan Arenado delivered a three-run homer and a two-run single Wednesday versus the Royals. Arenado's homer was his seventh in 23 games this year. He's tops in the NL with 23 RBI, placing him five behind his Player of the Month counterpart in the AL, Jose Ramirez.
San Francisco Giants DFS Spin
Brandon Crawford went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Dodgers. Crawford attacked a Tony Gonsolin offering for a solo home run in the second inning, but the Giants would find little further offensive fun on the evening. Veteran shortstop Crawford has struggled to a .220/.319/.341 triple-slash with two homers and 10 RBI over 82 at-bats this season. Wednesday's home run was his first since mid-April.
