Philadelphia Phillies DFS Spin
Bryce Harper, who left Sunday's game with back stiffness, went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Monday's game. Harper DH'd tonight, but judging by the end result, it seems as though he shouldn't have played at all. Harper is 4-for-23 with no homers and one RBI in seven games against his former team this year.

Asdrubal Cabrera went 2-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored Monday versus the Phillies.

He's 7-for-14 with four extra-base hits in his last four games, raising his OPS from .710 to .770.
