San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin
Mac Williamson went 0-for-3 with a walk Friday in the loss to the Diamondbacks. Here's a question for the Giants: if you think Anderson is any good, why the heck are you batting him eighth a pretty horrible assortment of hitters? And if you don't think he's any good, why are you playing him at all? We lean towards the "not good" side of things, but he's still probably a better hitter than the Giants' center fielder, right fielder, shortstop and second baseman.
Arizona Diamondbacks Fantasy Spin
David Peralta homered and walked Friday against the Giants. Peralta left Wednesday's game with back tightness, but he was back in left field tonight.
