New York Mets Fantasy Spin
Mets manager Mickey Callaway told reporters that Jeff McNeil left Tuesday's game due to left hamstring tightness. "Right now, all I know is his hammy tightened up on him," said Callaway. "He's getting evaluated and we'll just have to see what it is." There might not be an update on the 27-year-old rising star until sometime Wednesday. McNeil went 1-for-5 before exiting Tuesday's loss to the Braves in the bottom of the ninth inning after trying to leg out a grounder. He's batting .332/.400/.529 on the season.
Atlanta Braves Fantasy Spin
Ronald Acuna Jr. went 2-for-5 with a homer Tuesday in the Braves' 5-3 win over the Mets. Acuna also erased a run at home plate. He's up to 34 homers, nine of which have come in his last 11 games, and he scored his 100th and 101st runs tonight.

The Mets, meanwhile, have won 21 of their last 28 games overall and five of their last seven on the road. They’re also 5-2 in Steven Matz’s last seven road starts against the Braves.
