Philadelphia Phillies DFS SPIN
Bryce Harper went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer versus the Nationals on Monday. The homer was his 12th in 45 contests against his original organization, and he's hit an impressive .305/.463/.603 in those games. Of course, there's really no way Harper is ever going to one up the Nationals, given that they won the World Series the year after he left. All he can do is perform like one of the league's best players, which is what he's done this year.
Washington Nationals DFS Spin
Carter Kieboom went 2-for-4 and hit his fifth homer Monday versus the Phillies. It'd be nice if Kieboom could cut down on the strikeouts some, but at least he's showing some pop this time around after struggling there in the majors last year and in the minors in the early part of this season. He's at .236/.338/.400 through 130 plate appearances.
