Washington Nationals Fantasy Spin

Juan Soto went 1-for-2 with a stolen base and three walks to propel the Nationals to a 4-0 victory over the Giants on Monday. Soto reached base safely in four of his five plate appearances. It was the fourth time this season that he drew three walks in a single game. He also executed a textbook double-steal to enable teammate Anthony Rendon to scamper home with a key insurance run in the ninth inning. The 20-year-old sophomore sensation isn’t flashy, but he’s beginning to look like a potential generational talent. He owns a sublime .285/.399/.522 triple-slash line with 64 runs scored, 21 home runs, 71 RBI and nine stolen bases in 449 plate appearances.

San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin

Scooter Gennett went 1-for-3 in the Giants' loss to the Nationals on Monday. The Giants simply had nothing going offensively, managing only seven hits combined in the shutout loss. No Giants' batter reached base more than one and starting pitcher Jeff Samardzija accounted for their lone extra-base hit of the contest.

On the other side, the Giants have dropped four out of their last five games overall and are just 8-18 in their last 26 games versus National League East opponents.
