Atlanta Braves DFS SPIN
Matt Olson went 2-for-3 with two homers Monday in a loss to the Phillies. Fresh off winning the NL Player of the Week, Olson blasted his 49th and 50 home runs of the season off Phillies starter Michael Lorenzen. The 29-year-old is one homer away from tying the franchise record of 51 homers, set by Andruw Jones in 2005. With nearly three weeks left in the season, he has enough time to set a new record in Atlanta.
Philadelphia Phillies DFS SPIN
Craig Kimbrel fired a scoreless ninth inning on Monday against the Braves to record his 23rd save of the season. Kimbrel was called upon to protect a two-run lead. He allowed one batter to score but managed to get all three outs by tossing 13 pitches. On the season, the veteran has a 3.39 ERA and his 23 saves this season matches his high-water mark since he was the closer in Boston and collected 42 saves during the 2018 season.
