Philadelphia Phillies DFS Notes
Jean Segura went 3-for-5 and hit his first career grand slam Monday as the Phillies crushed the Brewers 12-0. Segura had 93 career homers, but none had come with the bases loaded. He knew it, too, as he immediately asked for the ball after hitting the slam. Segura is batting .295/.358/.441 with 11 homers in 470 plate appearances this season.
Milwaukee Brewers DFS Notes
Eric Lauer limited the Giants to one run and three hits over seven innings in a no-decision Thursday. We're not saying for sure that the Brewers wouldn't take it back, but the trade that sent Trent Grisham and Zach Davies to the Padres for Luis Urias and Lauer looks far less bad now than it did a year ago. Urias has been very solid with his .771 OPS, and Lauer has a 3.43 ERA in 15 starts and four relief appearances after pitching to a 13.09 ERA in his Brewers debut last year. He'll have a home start against the Phillies next.
