Milwaukee Brewers Fantasy Spin
Lorenzo Cain went 2-for-5 with a stolen base and a run scored in the Brewers' loss to the Giants on Friday. Cain notched a pair of hits and also swiped his seventh base of the season in this one. The 33-year-old outfielder has been a massive disappointment from a fantasy perspective, hitting .250/.308/.364 with 42 runs scored, four homers and 27 RBI across 299 plate appearances. After recording 25-plus steals in each of the last two seasons, fantasy owners were probably expecting more of a contribution in that department than he's provided so far
San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin
Kevin Pillar went 3-for-3 with a solo homer and a pair of stolen bases in the Giants' win over the Brewers on Friday. Pillar slugged a solo shot -- his eighth long ball of the season -- off Brewers starter Zach Davies in the fifth inning. He also swiped a pair of bases to bring his season total to eight. The 30-year-old isn't a fantasy star, but he offers enough speed (and occasional pop) to warrant a roster spot in extremely deep formats. If you're going to roster him, it's best to ignore his unsightly .224/.251/.373 triple-slash line across 255 plate appearances.
