Washington Nationals Fantasy Spin

Juan Soto finished 3-for-4 with a solo homer and two runs scored in Friday’s loss to the Reds. Soto just keeps on rolling. He’s now hitting .472 (25-for-53) with 12 extra-base hits (including four homers), 14 RBI, and 15 runs scored over his last 14 games. We hope you didn’t sell low in fantasy leagues.

Cincinnati Reds Fantasy Spin

Curt Casali enjoyed a huge night at the plate on Friday against the Nationals, going 3-for-4 with a homer, four RBI, and two runs scored. Casali helped put Patrick Corbin in an early hole with a three-run homer during a five-run first inning. He later added an RBI double in the fourth after Corbin was pulled from the game. The 30-year-old has been surprisingly productive as Tucker Barnhart’s backup this year, batting .298/.355/.452 with two homers and 16 RBI over 36 games.
