Washington Nationals Fantasy Spin
Trea Turner launched a solo homer and walked twice in the Nationals’ narrow victory over the Giants on Tuesday. Turner went deep off Giants southpaw Conner Menez in the fifth inning to record his 10th long ball of the season. It was his lone hit of the contest and his third round-tripper since the All-Star break. He also drew a pair of walks and was caught stealing for the fourth time this season. The 26-year-old shortstop owns a .285/.348/.481 triple-slash line with 52 runs scored, 10 home runs, 29 RBI and 23 stolen bases in 342 plate appearances.
San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin
Kevin Pillar went 3-for-4 with a pair of runs scored in the Giants’ loss to the Nationals on Tuesday. Pillar singled, advanced to third on an errant pickoff throw and crossed the plate on a ground out by ensuing batter Brandon Crawford in the third inning. He also singled and came around to score on an RBI double by Pablo Sandoval in the seventh and smacked a one-out double in the ninth. The 30-year-old outfielder possesses enough over-the-fence pop and speed to warrant a roster spot in deeper mixed leagues. He's hitting .243/.269/.403 with 55 runs scored, 13 home runs, 57 RBI and nine stolen bases in 446 plate appearances.
