Atlanta Braves DFS SPIN
Jorge Soler went 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored against the Giants on Sunday. After three scoreless innings, Soler plated the first run of the game with a solo homer off of Anthony DeSclafani to lead off the fourth inning. He added a single in the seventh and scored on a sacrifice fly by Jon Pederson. Despite a .213/.314/.410 slash line on the year, he's hit much better since joining the Braves with a .282 average and seven homers over 25 games with Atlanta.
Los Angeles Dodgers DFS Spin
Julio Urias blanked the Padres over five innings in a 5-2 victory for the Dodgers on Tuesday. Urias allowed just one hit, and he struck out four with two walks. The southpaw came off the injured list on Tuesday, and he pitched well while throwing 50-of-74 pitches for strikes and showing no obvious issues in his left calf. The 25-year-old now sports a strong 3.17 ERA over his 25 starts (144 2/3 innings), and he improves his K/BB ratio to 153/32. Urias is back on the mound Sunday against the Rockies, and it's of course worth pointing out that start is in Los Angeles.
