Atlanta Braves Fantasy Spin
Dallas Keuchel yielded two runs on five hits over 7 1/3 innings in a win over the Marlins on Sunday. Keuchel struck out four batters and only walked one batter. He was charged with both runs after he exited the contest in the eighth inning when reliever Chad Sobotoka allowed a pair of inherited runners to cross the plate on a three-run blast by Garrett Cooper. The 31-year-old southpaw has been an excellent free agent acquisition so far, allowing three earned runs or fewer in each of his four starts since joining the Braves starting rotation in late-June. He’ll carry a 3.60 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 12/6 K/BB ratio into the All-Star break.
San Diego Padres Fantasy Spin
Fernando Tatis Jr. went 2-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI to help the Padres down the Dodgers 5-3 on Sunday. Tatis led off the game with a drive to center field for a solo shot, and he crushed a three-run homer in the fifth for his second dinger of the game. It was a nice exclamation point on a very strong first half for the rookie, who hit a robust .327/.393/.620 with 14 homers and 13 steals in 55 games. If we know anything about the 20-year-old, this is only the beginning.
