San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin
Tyler Austin went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in the Giants’ loss to the Dodgers on Wednesday. Austin crushed a towering solo shot to right-center field off Dodgers reliever Yimi Garcia in the fourth inning. He also struck out three times in the contest. The Giants had nothing going offensively against a parade of Los Angeles relievers, managing only four hits combined in this one. The 27-year-old possesses impressive raw power, but continues to struggle to make enough contact to hold down an everyday role at the big-league level. His fantasy value is strictly limited to NL-Only formats.
Los Angeles Dodgers Fantasy Spin
Cody Bellinger went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer, a walk and a pair of runs scored in the Dodgers' lopsided win over the Giants on Wednesday. Bellinger walloped a two-run blast -- his 24th round-tripper of the season -- to deep left-center field off Giants reliever Dereck Rodriguez in the seventh inning to put the Dodgers ahead 9-2. The 23-year-old slugger is now tied with Mets rookie Pete Alonso for second in the majors with 24 round-trippers and trails only reigning National League MVP Christian Yelich, who socked his 27th long ball earlier in the day, for the major-league lead. He’s hitting .359/.455/.710 across 310 plate appearances. We've simply run out of superlatives at this point.
