Arizona Diamondbacks Fantasy Spin
David Peralta was removed from Tuesday night's game against the Padres due to right shoulder soreness. This shoulder issue could very well be related to the trapezius tightness that Peralta battled through last week. He's considered day-to-day for now and will be reevaluated by the Diamondbacks' medical staff on Wednesday. Peralta went 0-for-2 with two strikeouts before getting lifted Tuesday, but he is still batting .309/.357/.524 on the season.
San Diego Padres Fantasy Spin
Eric Hosmer hit a two-run homer off Zack Greinke to lead the Padres to a 3-2 win over the Diamondbacks on Tuesday. Hosmer has seven homers. Six of them have come since April 20, and he's batting .346 in 107 at-bats since that date. On the other hand, he has slowed down some of late; he had gone eight straight games without an extra-base hit or an RBI before the homer tonight.
