Los Angeles Dodgers Fantasy Spin
Corey Seager picked up two hits Wednesday in a loss to the Diamondbacks. Seager was the only Dodger to log more than one hit in Wednesday’s defeat. He poked a two-out double to left in the fourth, then added to his haul by beating out an infield single (also with two outs) in the eighth. Seager hasn’t performed up to his usual elite standards this year, though he’s been on a tear recently, batting .333 (15-for-45) with four homers and 14 RBI over his last 12 contests.
San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin
Joe Panik went 0-for-4 on Thursday and is 10-for-54 in his last 12 games. Panik had a nice run initially after taking over the leadoff spot for the Giants, but he's definitely cooled off of late. Maybe it's time to give Steven Duggar another turn.
