Chicago Cubs DFS SPIN

David Bote went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts on Monday in his return to the Cubs' lineup. It'll likely take Bote a few games to knock off some of the rust after missing three consecutive contests due to left shoulder soreness.

Milwaukee Brewers DFS SPIN

Victor Caratini hit a three-run homer in the bottom of the 10th to give the Brewers a 5-2 win over the Cubs on Monday. With Pedro Severino back from his 80-game suspension, the Brewers finally (finally!) decided to give Caratini a start somewhere other than catcher today, using him at first base. It didn't look like it was going to work out when he struck out in his first four at-bats, but he more than made up for it against Scott Effross in the 10th. Caratini has been arguably the Brewers' best hitter this year, coming in at .245/.368/.464 in 133 plate appearances, but Craig Counsell refused to use him and Omar Narvaez at the same time with only two catchers on the roster. Now that Caratini has been freed, he could be at least a fringy option in one-catcher mixed leagues.


The Cubs are now 2-9 in their last 11 games in Milwaukee and are 8-21 in their last 20 games versus the Brewers overall. Chicago has also dropped 10 of its last 13 road games, is 2-5 in its last seven games away from Wrigley Field when facing a team with a winning record and is 3-7 in its last 10 road games when facing a right-handed starter. The Brewers, meanwhile, are 4-1 in their last five home games, are 7-2 in their last nine games overall and are 30-11 in their last 41 home games when facing an opponent with a losing record.
