Arizona Diamondbacks Fantasy Spin

Carson Kelly went 2-for-4 with a solo homer Friday against the Nationals. He gave the Diamondbacks the early lead with his solo shot in the third, but the Nationals held the advantage the rest of the way. Kelly has supplied a potent bat when called upon this season, with eight homers and an .867 OPS over 47 games. He’s still sharing playing time behind the plate, but he’s capable of being a useful second catcher in fantasy leagues.

Washington Nationals Fantasy Spin

Anthony Rendon went 1-for-3 with a solo homer and a sacrifice fly in Friday’s win over the Diamondbacks. Rendon gave the Nationals some extra cushion with his blast in the sixth and knocked in another run with a sacrifice fly in the seventh. He’s now gone deep four times in his last five games, bringing his total to 15 on the year to go along with 48 RBI, 49 runs scored, and a ridiculous .315/.414/.655 batting line over 55 games.
