New York Mets DFS SPIN
Mets manager Buck Showalter said after Monday's game that Jeff McNeil (hamstring) is considered day-to-day at this point. It certainly doesn't mean McNeil is out of the woods yet, but at least the hamstring injury he suffered Monday apparently isn't an auto-injured list situation. We'll have a better idea as to his condition on Tuesday.
Houston Astros DFS SPIN
J.J. Matijevic blasted a solo home run in the fourth inning on Sunday, helping to propel the Astros to victory over the White Sox. Matijevic victimized Michael Kopech for his 343-foot blast -- the first hit of his big league career. It would be his only hit in four at-bats on the night but it played a critical role in the victory. He's hitting just .091 in his limited time with the Astros this season.
