Colorado Rockies Fantasy Spin
David Dahl went 1-for-3 and worked a walk in a loss to the Nationals in the second game of a doubleheader on Wednesday. Dahl's double was one of just five knocks for the Rockies in the shutout loss. The young outfielder has a .299 batting average with 13 home runs and 56 RBI in 92 games. He has the potential to develop into a fantasy monster but isn't there yet.
Washington Nationals Fantasy Spin
Yan Gomes went 2-for-3 and slugged a solo home run in a win over the Rockies on Wednesday. He deposited a Jake McGee offering over the fence in the seventh inning. The bomb was his fourth of the season. It's been a disappointing campaign for Gomes in his first season with the Nationals. He has a .212 batting average with 22 RBI in 61 games.
