San Diego Padres DFS Notes
Adam Frazier went 2-for-4 with a double and three RBI against the Angels on Wednesday. After Wil Myers got on base with a walk to lead off the second inning, Frazier doubled off of Mike Mayers to drive in the first run for the Padres. Later in the same inning, he drove in the seventh and eighth runs with a two-run single. The 29-year-old All-Star is hitting .303/.367/.409 with four homers and seven steals over 555 plate appearances. Most of that production has come with the Pirates as the double on Wednesday was just the fourth extra-base hit -- no homers --with San Diego.
Los Angeles Dodgers DFS Notes
Cody Bellinger finished 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in the Dodgers' loss to the Cardinals on Thursday. Bellinger's most troubling at-bat in this one might have been when he flied out to right field with the bases loaded to end the top of the third inning. The former NL MVP has yet to record a hit through 24 plate appearances in September and is in a 5-for-65 rut dating back to August 18. For the season, he's batting just .158 with a .524 OPS.
