San Francisco Giants DFS SPIN

With Camilo Doval needing a night off, Jake McGee got a save chance against the Braves on Wednesday and blew it by allowing three runs while recording just one out. McGee was not the Giants' best option, but Doval, Tyler Rogers and Dominic Leone had all worked three of the last four days (actually, four out of five for Doval). McGee had thrown 6 2/3 scoreless innings this month, lowering his ERA from 8.74 to 5.50. Still, he's just not missing bats this year (13% strikeout rate) and he'd been extremely fortunate to allow just one homer before giving up Dansby Swanson's 10th of the year tonight. He should be through as a saves candidate.

Atlanta Braves DFS SPIN

Marcell Ozuna went 2-for-4 with two runs scored as the Braves came back to beat the Giants 4-3 on Wednesday. After Dansby Swanson homered to make it a 3-2 game, Ozuna, William Contreras and Adam Duvall all singled in the bottom of the ninth to give the Braves the win. Ozuna hasn't gotten hot at any point this season, but he likely will eventually. For what it's worth, Statcast thinks he should be slugging about 140 points higher than his current .415 mark.


The Giants are now 6-13 in their last 19 games versus the Braves, are 1-5 in their last six games as a road underdog and are 1-5 in their last six games versus a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15. On the other side, the Braves have won nine of their last 10 home games, are 14-2 in their last 16 games coming off a win and are 7-1 in their last eight games versus National League West opponents.
