Houston Astros Fantasy Spin
Alex Bregman went 2-for-4 with a double and three RBI against the Mariners on Tuesday. Rafael Devers was given the award, but Alex Bregman should have been the AL Player of the Month for May; while the two had similar offensive numbers, Bregman is clearly superior defensively and also plays in a tougher environment for scoring runs. Bregman, who hit 12 homers last month, has 29 RBI in 32 games since the beginning of May and 43 overall.
Seattle Mariners Fantasy Spin
Mitch Haniger homered and walked twice versus the Astros on Tuesday. With 15 homers, 46 runs scored and four steals, Haniger has been a pretty good fantasy outfielder. The Mariners, though, were hoping for more than a .230ish average and an OBP around .320. He'll get hot again at some point, but he's had a tough time stringing much of anything together since mid-April.
