Atlanta Braves DFS SPIN
Travis d'Arnaud (leg) was held out of the Braves' starting lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Mets. No surprise here after d'Arnaud was involved in an on-field collision during Saturday's contest. X-rays came back negative on his right leg for any fractures, so he's considered day-to-day for the moment. He'll likely receive a few days off this week to rest up and recover.
Boston Red Sox DFS SPIN
Red Sox manager Alex Cora told reporters on Friday that Enrique Hernández (hip) has "felt great" since resuming swinging a bat. Hernández has made gradual progress towards returning to the Red Sox' lineup since receiving a platelet-rich plasma injection in his right hip just prior to the All-Star break. Boston could certainly use him back in center field with rookie Jarren Duran struggling mightily from a defensive standpoint recently. It sounds like Hernández is getting close to a minor league rehab assignment.
