St. Louis Cardinals DFS SPIN
Conner Capel went 1-for-2 with a homer and two RBI on Monday in a loss to the Braves. Congrats to Capel on his first ever MLB homer. The 25-year-old isn't likely to get enough playing time while with St. Louis to consider in any type of fantasy league, but that means nothing to Capel, he hit his first MLB home run today.
Atlanta Braves DFS SPIN
Eddie Rosario went 1-for-4 on Monday in his return to the Braves' lineup. Rosario started in left field and batted seventh on Monday against the Cardinals in his return after missing over two months due to an eye procedure back in late April. He figures to factor prominently into the Braves' corner outfield mix over the remainder of the season.
