Milwaukee Brewers Fantasy Spin
Christian Yelich went 2-for-4 and scored a run in a win over the Phillies on Wednesday. He singled twice in the ballgame but it was a hit-by-pitch that got him on base to score the run. He was drilled by Jake Arrieta in the first inning and came around to score on a knock by Ryan Braun. He is making a run at another MVP Award by slugging .333/.451/.716 with 16 home runs, 38 RBI, 36 runs and eight stolen bases through 40 games. He is tied with George Springer for the major league lead in homers.
Philadelphia Phillies Fantasy Spin
J.T. Realmuto went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles in a loss to the Brewers on Wednesday. The Phillies couldn't get a whole lot going against Gio Gonzalez and the Brewers' bullpen. Realmuto's power has been down a bit despite moving to a more hitter-friendly ballpark in his first season with the Phillies. He is putting up a smooth and steady sort of season, owning a .276/.337/.421 slash line with four homers, 25 RBI and 26 runs scored in 40 games.
