Cincinnati Reds Fantasy Spin

Yasiel Puig went 2-for-5 with a homer on Monday to help the Reds beat the Cubs 6-3 on Monday. Puig's homer came in the sixth inning, and it brought the Reds to within a run at 3-2. It's the 22nd homer in a Reds' uniform for your friend, and he's driven in 56 runs over 87 games. Puig also singled, so his line improves to .263/.307/.509 over 87 games.

Chicago Cubs Fantasy Spin

Kyle Schwarber went 2-for-5 with a homer in a loss to the Reds on Monday. Schwarber hit his 20th bomb of the year when he took Luis Castillo deep in the third inning. He also doubled, and that's the 16th two-bagger for the outfielder. Schwarber is hitting just .232, but the 20 homers and 45 RBI along with an .803 OPS help compensate for that. At least a little bit.
