Cincinnati Reds Fantasy Spin
Yasiel Puig is considered day-to-day after being diagnosed with a right shoulder sprain. Puig sustained the injury during Sunday's game against the Dodgers, when he jumped into the crowd to make a phenomenal catch in the sixth inning. It sounds like he was fortunate to avoid serious injury, though, and should be able to avoid the injured list. Expect him back in the Reds' lineup early in the week.
Milwaukee Brewers Fantasy Spin
Christian Yelich went 1-for-4 with his major league-leading 19th homer of the season in the Brewers’ extra-inning win over the Braves on Sunday. Yelich clobbered a solo homer to left-center field off Braves’ starter Mike Foltynewicz in the first inning. It was his lone hit in four at-bats. The 27-year-old reigning National League MVP had been held hitless in the first two games of the three-game series, but finally broke through in this one. He owns a surreal .325/.440/.732 triple-slash line with 40 runs scored, 41 RBI and nine steals across 191 plate appearances.
