Milwaukee Brewers Fantasy Spin
Mike Moustakas will sit out Wednesday's game after getting hit in the hand by a pitch Tuesday against the Padres. X-rays were negative, so expectations are that he'll be fine in a couple of days. The Brewers will probably start both Hernan Perez and Travis Shaw on Wednesday.
San Diego Padres Fantasy Spin
Manny Machado went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in the Padres’ win over the Brewers on Tuesday. Machado was handed a one-game suspension for his actions following his ejection last Saturday, but is currently appealing and has remained in the Padres’ lineup. He extended their lead to a pair of runs with a two-out, RBI ground-rule double off Brewers starter Brandon Woodruff in the fifth inning. The 26-year-old shortstop owns a seven-game hit streak and has raised his full-season line to .268/.348/.468 with 42 runs scored, 14 homers, 41 RBI and one steal across 305 plate appearances.
