Chicago Cubs DFS SPIN
Adrian Sampson gave up four earned runs in 5 1/3 innings on Friday in his start against the Red Sox. Sampson got off to as poor of a start as you can, giving up a solo homer to Jarren Duran to lead off the game. He would allow seven more hits — eight total — with one walk and four strikeouts. The 30-year-old has pitched decently in his limited action with the Cubs in 2022, but unsurprisingly wasn’t overly effective against one of the better lineups in baseball. He now has a 3.38 ERA and 14/3 K/BB ratio over his 16 innings, and will look to bounce back on Wednesday in Milwaukee against the Brewers.
Milwaukee Brewers DFS SPIN
Hunter Renfroe (calf) was able to resume on-field baseball activity on Monday. Renfroe was able to throw, run and hit during batting practice prior to Monday’s contest against the Cubs. The 30-year-old slugger is working his way back from a left calf strain that sent him to the injured list back in late June. There isn’t an official timetable for his return, but he’s getting closer.
