Houston Astros Fantasy Spin

Jose Altuve (hamstring, knee) went 1-for-4 with a triple, a walk, and two strikeouts Monday in his latest rehab game with Triple-A Round Rock. To be fair, the triple was a fly ball that got lost in the lights. Altuve was pulled off his rehab assignment late last month due to fatigue and soreness" around his surgically-repaired right knee, but he appears on the verge of a return. It remains to be seen how his knee will impact his production moving forward, but he'll obviously be worth using right away in fantasy leagues.

Cincinnati Reds Fantasy Spin

Jesse Winker went 4-for-5 with a two-run home run and five total RBI in Sunday's 11-3 win over the Rangers. Winker came through time and again on Sunday. His huge day on the RBI front began with a two-run double in the second inning. The outfielder followed that blow up with an even louder one two frames later, smacking a two-run home run in the fourth inning. He finished up his afternoon's work with an RBI single in the fifth inning. Alas, no triple would be forthcoming to complete the near-cycle. For the campaign as a whole, Winker is slashing .244/.320/.454 with 11 home runs and 23 RBI across 63 games played. Prior to Sunday's four-hit outburst, Winker had not come up with a multi-hit effort since back on May 27.
