Washington Nationals Fantasy Spin
Adam Eaton had a double, a stolen base and a run scored in a win over the Dodgers on Thursday. Eaton led off the game with a double and, three batters later, was part of a double steal that ultimately proved inconsequential after Howie Kendrick's three-run homer allowed them all to jog home at a leisurely pace. The stolen base was Eaton's fifth of the year and his first attempt since April 22, making him 5-of-6 in stolen base tries on the year. The 30-year-old is off to a decent start atop the Nats lineup this year, batting .291/.349/.411 with three homers and those five steals in in 36 games.
Los Angeles Dodgers Fantasy Spin
Russell Martin went 2-for-4 in Thursday's loss to the Nationals. Drawing the start against Nats southpaw Patrick Corbin, Martin collected two of the Dodgers' six singles en route to being shut out. The multi-hit game was Martin's first since April 5, a statistic that's both true and skewed by the fact that he missed three weeks in early April with lower back inflammation and has only played 13 games this year. Backing up starter Austin Barnes, the 36-year-old is hitting .235/.400/.353 on the year.
