Chicago Cubs DFS SPIN
Alfonso Rivas walked twice and scored a run Thursday in the Cubs’ loss to the Braves. Rivas reached base safely in two of his three plate appearances and scored the Cubs’ lone run of the low-scoring contest in the second inning. The 25-year-old infielder holds a surreal .462/.563/.769 batting line with one homer and six RBI in 16 plate appearances at the major-league level this season.
Milwaukee Brewers DFS Spin
Andrew McCutchen went 3-for-4 with a homer and three total RBI as the Brewers topped the Pirates on Thursday. McCutchen provided all of Milwaukee’s scoring in the 3-2 afternoon victory at PNC Park, first belting a solo homer off Jose Quintana in the opening frame before stroking a go-ahead two-run single over Josh VanMeter’s head in the top of the ninth. McCutchen also drew a walk on Thursday, boosting his season OPS from .556 to .656 in a span of just five plate appearances.
