San Diego Padres DFS Notes
Fernando Tatis Jr. homered in a loss on Tuesday to the Rockies. Tatis swatted a solo homer that traveled an estimated 450 feet to center off of Germán Márquez. The superstar has homered three times since coming off the injured list on Sunday, and 34 times in the 2021 campaign.
Colorado Rockies DFS Notes
C.J. Cron homered while going 2-for-4 on Tuesday in a 7-3 victory for the Rockies over the Padres. Cron has now homered in three-of-four games, with this one being a solo shot off Tim Hill. The first baseman also singled, and his slash of .266/.374/.517 is a lot more impressive when you consider his scuffles to begin the season. Fantasy managers who see Cron available in their league should rectify that situation.
