Colorado Rockies Fantasy Spin
Nolan Arenado went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and a pair of RBI in the Rockies’ loss to the Padres on Saturday. Arenado popped a solo homer -- his 26th long ball of the season -- off Padres starter Chris Paddack in the fourth inning. He’s gone deep four times in his last six games. The 28-year-old fantasy superstar is hitting .308/.369/.547 with 75 runs scored, 87 RBI and a pair of stolen bases in 491 plate appearances.
San Diego Padres Fantasy Spin
Manuel Margot went 3-for-4 with a go-ahead two-run homer and three RBI in the Padres’ win over the Rockies on Saturday. Margot singled in the second inning, delivered an RBI single in the fifth and slugged a go-ahead two-run homer -- his 10th round-tripper of the season -- off Rockies reliever Jairo Diaz in the eighth inning. The 24-year-old outfielder has been on an absolute tear at the plate, hitting .286 (26-for-91) with seven home runs, 22 runs scored and five stolen bases in 31 games since July 1. He's worthy of a roster spot in deeper mixed leagues.
