Los Angeles Angels Fantasy Spin
Mike Trout slugged a solo homer and drew a walk Friday against the Astros. That gives him four homers in his last three games and 26 on the year. He’s two homers ahead of Gary Sanchez for the AL lead. Trout leads the majors with a .454 on-base percentage and only Cody Bellinger and Christian Yelich best him in terms of his 1.087 OPS. We’re getting spoiled here, people.
Houston Astros Fantasy Spin
Michael Brantley went 4-for-4 with a solo homer and three runs scored Friday against the Angels. The Astros only had six hits on the night, so Brantley accounted for most of them. It was his first four-hit game of the season. Brantley entered Friday’s action with just one homer over his previous 43 games, but he’s obviously capable of better moving forward.
