San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin
Nick Vincent was pulled from Tuesday night's game against the Marlins due to an apparent injury. Vincent appeared to be pointing toward his neck or collarbone after throwing an 88.4 mph four-seam fastball to Curtis Granderson in the bottom of the sixth inning. Giants manager Bruce Bochy should provide an update after the game. San Francisco has already placed two other relievers on the injured list over the last week.
Miami Marlins Fantasy Spin
Harold Ramirez went 3-for-4 with an RBI single and a run scored in Tuesday's lopsided win over the Giants. Ramirez collected three of the Marlins' 14 hits as they attacked Giants pitchers for 11 runs on the evening. The multi-hit game was the sixth in his last eight contests, and he's now hit safely in 11 of his 12 starts this year. The 24-year-old is hitting an obscene .413/.460/.543 overall and is squarely on the NL-only radar with a start like this to his major league career.
MLB Betting Trends
The Giants are now 1-5 in their last six games versus the Marlins in Miami.
The Marlins have beaten the Giants in 10 of the last 14 meetings between the two teams.
The Giants are just 2-6 in Madison Bumgarner’s last eight starts versus the Marlins and are 2-6 in his last eight road outings. They’re also winless in their last six games overall and have dropped 11 of their last 13 games versus the National League East. The Marlins are hot while the Giants continue to struggle, so getting Miami with plus odds offers good value.
