San Diego Padres DFS SPIN
Jurickson Profar went 1-for-4 with a grand slam and a walk in the Padres’ win over the Diamondbacks on Sunday. With the bases loaded in the top of the second, Profar took a 1-1 slider from Caleb Smith deep to left center field, giving the Padres a 4-0 lead. Profar has now hit two home runs over his first ten at-bats of 2022. For reference, he hit four home runs over 353 at-bats in 2021.
San Francisco Giants DFS Spin
Heliot Ramos went 2-for-3 with a run scored Sunday as the Giants took down the Marlins, 3-2. With two-out and nobody on in the bottom of the second, Ramos shot a 107.4 mph single up the middle that deflected off of Jazz Chisholm Jr., his first career big league hit. A top-five prospect in the Giants’ farm system according to MLB.com, Ramos is worth a speculative add in most fantasy formats. Though, how much playing time he receives will likely come down to how he’s performing.
