Colorado Rockies Fantasy Spin
Trevor Story went 1-for-3 with a solo homer and a walk in the Rockies' loss to the Diamondbacks on Saturday. Story tattooed a gargantuan solo shot -- his 18th round-tripper of the season -- to center field off Diamondbacks reliever Yoan Lopez in the eighth inning to bring the Rockies within two runs. It also was his first home run since coming off the 10-day injured list earlier this week. The 26-year-old fantasy superstar missed nearly two weeks due to a right thumb sprain. He's hitting .293/.359/.543 with 67 runs scored, 49 RBI and 12 steals across 345 plate appearances.
Arizona Diamondbacks Fantasy Spin
Christian Walker went 3-for-4 with two homers and five RBI on Friday in the Diamondbacks' 8-0 rout of the Rockies. Walker got the scoring going for the D-Backs with a two-run shot off of Antonio Senzatela, and an inning later, he obliterated a three-run shot off of Jesus Tinoco to extend the lead to 5-0. He's now driven in 43 runs on the season, and the two round-trippers bring his total to 17 on the year. Walker has slowed down considerably as of late, but he still owns a .263/.332/.505 line, and you will certainly take those numbers; especially considering how low expectations were coming into the year.
