Colorado Rockies Fantasy Spin
Nolan Arenado drilled a two-run homer in the Rockies’ loss to the Diamondbacks on Tuesday. Arenado walloped a two-run homer -- his 31st round-tripper of the season off Diamondbacks’ starter Alex Young in the fourth inning. It was his lone hit in five at-bats on the night. The 28-year-old slugger has been on an impressive tear recently, swatting nine home runs in 16 games this month. He owns a robust .302/.361/.557 triple-slash line with 81 runs scored, 96 RBI and two stolen bases in 529 plate appearances. He’s the safest four-category investment in fantasy baseball.
Arizona Diamondbacks Fantasy Spin
Nick Ahmed went 1-for-2 with a solo homer and drove in two runs to propel the Diamondbacks to an 8-6 win over the Rockies on Tuesday. Ahmed took Rockies’ starter Kyle Freeland deep to left-center field in the third inning to set a new career-high with 17th round-trippers this season. He also plated an additional run with a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning. The 29-year-old defensive wizard owns a solid .273/.333/.468 triple-slash line with 69 runs scored, 70 RBI and seven stolen bases in 493 plate appearances. There’s some mixed-league appeal, especially in deeper formats, as a middle infield option thanks to his blend of power and speed production moving forward.
