Boston Red Sox DFS Spin

Alex Verdugo belted a tiebreaking, three-run home run in the top of the eighth inning Tuesday versus the Braves. Enrique Hernandez was unable to drive in the go-ahead run with runners on second and third and one out, but Verdugo picked him up by blasting one 409 feet over the left-center field wall. Verdugo also had a single and scored a run in the first inning. He's already up to nine home runs this season, which is a pleasant surprise for a guy fantasy managers weren't necessarily counting on for a ton of power.

Atlanta Braves DFS Spin

Ronald Acuna went 2-for-5 with a couple RBI and a run scored Tuesday versus the Red Sox. Acuna put a punctuation mark on the Braves' three-run fourth inning with a two-out, two-run double. He also gave his fantasy managers a single, a stolen base and a run scored in the ninth inning as the Braves' rally fell short. The five-category stud now has 13 stolen bases on the season. Only Whit Merrifield and Isiah Kiner-Falefa have more. Acuna had to leave the Braves' last game with pectoral tightness, but clearly he's fine.
