Atlanta Braves Fantasy Spin
Freddie Freeman went 3-for-4 with a homer and a walk against the Giants on Wednesday. Freeman has five homers during his current eight-game hitting streak. Tonight's performance gave him a 1.000 OPS for the first time since mid-April.
San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin
Tyler Austin homered and walked against the Braves on Wednesday. Austin is hitting .255 with three homers and 10 RBI in 51 at-bats for the Giants, but the team hasn't been willing to play him much in left field and they can only squeeze him in at first base so often. He might not last on the roster unless the team opts to trade Brandon Belt.
