St. Louis Cardinals DFS SPIN
Dylan Carlson went 1-for-2 and drew a walk as the Cardinals were shut out by Zack Wheeler and the Phillies on Sunday night. As a team, the Cardinals totaled just four hits and two walks in the contest, with Carlson the only player to reach base twice. He’s now slashing .255/.320/.417 with five homers, 23 RBI and four stolen bases in 62 games on the season.
Atlanta Braves DFS SPIN
Marcell Ozuna hit his 15th and 16th homers of the year Sunday against the Reds. Ozuna and Michael Harris II both hit solo homers in the top of the ninth to tie up the game against Hunter Strickland, but the Reds went on to win in the bottom of the ninth. It was Ozuna’s third two-homer game of the year. Still, he’s been a disappointment in hitting .227/.280/.420. His average and OBP are both 50 points under his career marks.
