Atlanta Braves Fantasy Spin

Dansby Swanson hit a pair of homers Friday as the Braves topped the Cardinals 5-2. After slumping all month, Swanson has come through with eight hits, including three homers, in his last four games. He pushed his OPS back over .800 tonight, and his OBP, which had dropped all of the way to .305 since he was moved into the second spot in the order, has rebounded to .319.

St. Louis Cardinals Fantasy Spin

Kolten Wong went 0-for-4 on Friday, leaving him with a .194 average in 67 at-bats this month. Wong was a nice surprise in April, but the numbers have fallen steadily since his fast start. He'd be a lot more interesting for fantasy purposes if he wasn't stuck at the bottom of the Cardinals lineup.
