Cincinnati Reds Fantasy Spin
Yasiel Puig went 2-for-4 in Sunday's loss to the Indians. In an essentially uncompetitive loss -- the Reds fell by an 11-1 final score -- Puig at least managed to put a little positive wind in his sails heading into the All-Star break. He wraps up the first half of the season slashing .257/.304/.493 with 20 home runs and 51 RBI across 82 games played. Puig has picked up multiple hits in four of his last five games, with three home runs clocked in that five-game sample.
Colorado Rockies Fantasy Spin
Charlie Blackmon slugged a solo home run in the 2019 MLB All-Star Game on Tuesday night in Cleveland. Blackmon was 0-for-8 in his three previous All-Star Game appearances before entering Tuesday night’s Midsummer Classic on defense in the bottom of the fourth inning and smoking a ball over the right-center field wall off A’s reliever Liam Hendriks in the top of the sixth. He then struck out with the bases loaded in the top of the eighth, finishing the night 1-for-2. The National League eventually fell to the American League by a score of 4-3.
