Washington Nationals DFS Spin

Josh Harrison went 2-for-4 with a stolen base on Thursday in the Nationals' loss to the Braves. Harrison's unexpected renaissance continued with his seventh multi-hit effort in 20 games this season. He also picked up his first stolen base of the season in this one. He's hitting .333/.422/.472 with 10 runs scored, two homers and nine RBI across 83 plate appearances. It's an extremely small sample size, headlined by a preposterous .355 BABIP, but he's shown enough to be worthy of a roster spot in deeper mixed leagues and NL-only formats.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Thursday that Aaron Hicks was dealing with a cramping issue in both of his legs during the team's loss to the Astros. Hicks managed to stay in the contest, which was important since the Yankees were dealing with a shorthanded bench situation, but it sounds like his availability for Friday's series opener against the Nationals could be in jeopardy. Fantasy managers should keep a close eye on his status over the next few days.
