San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin

Mike Yastrzemski launched a two-run homer in the Giants’ loss to the Rockies on Friday. Yastrzemski clobbered a gargantuan 472-foot two-run tater to right field off Rockies starter Peter Lambert in the fifth inning. It was his lone hit in four at-bats. The 28-year-old slugger’s over-the-fence power has been extremely impressive. He’s gone deep 10 times in just 219 plate appearances and carved out a permanent everyday role in the Giants' lineup in the process. He should be owned in deeper mixed leagues.

Colorado Rockies Fantasy Spin

Trevor Story went 2-for-3 with a solo homer and a walk in the Rockies’ win over the Giants on Friday. Story skied a solo homer -- his 23rd long ball of the season -- to center field off Giants starter Shaun Anderson in the third inning. It was his first home run since July 17. The dynamic 26-year-old shortstop is a virtual lock to eclipse the 30-homer plateau for the second consecutive season and has a realistic chance to match or surpass last year’s career-high 37 dingers with a strong two-month finish to the 2019 campaign. He’s hitting .280/.344/.545 with 78 runs scored, 59 RBI and 14 stolen bases in 436 plate appearances.

MLB Betting Trends

San Francisco

The Giants are 10-2 in their last 12 games against divisional opponents and are 8-1 in their last nine games coming off a loss.


The Rockies have won six of Jon Gray’s last seven home starts and are 9-4 in his last 13 outings overall.


The Giants are a perfect 4-0 in Madison Bumgarner’s last four starts against the Rockies but are just 9-21 in his last 30 road starts and have lost 20 of 27 games at Coors Field (that even includes a four-game sweep of the Rockies a few weeks ago). The Rockies have been profitable when Gray starts, including producing a 10-1 record in his last 11 starts coming off four days of rest. They’re also 6-2 in Gray’s last eight outings against the rest of the National League West. You can feel the Giants dipping and their smoke-and-mirrors offense is about to cave.

The Pick: Colorado Rockies -129
