Philadelphia Phillies Fantasy Spin

J.T. Realmuto hit a go-ahead homer in the 10th to help the Phillies beat the Cubs 5-4 on Monday. Realmuto also had an RBI single tonight. He's homered in back-to-back games after hitting just four homers in 42 games to start the year. He also swiped a bag tonight for the first time all season.

Chicago Cubs Fantasy Spin

Brandon Morrow (elbow) threw from 45-60 feet on flat ground Monday. It's the first time he's done any throwing since he was given an injection in his elbow following a setback in late April. Obviously, his timetable remains up in the air.

The Phillies beat the Cubs last night but are still just 3-8 in their last 11 games at Wrigley Field.

The Pick: Chicago Cubs -136
