San Diego Padres DFS SPIN
Manny Machado went 2-for-4 in a loss on Wednesday to the Giants. Machado also scored a run. The 2022 regular season comes to an end for Machado, and it was one of his best as a regular — certainly a compliment for one of the best players in the sport. He finishes with 32 homers, 102 RBI, nine stolen bases and a slash of .298/.366/.531 over 151 games. Machado will be one of the first third baseman off the board in 2023, but up next is a playoff series over the weekend against the Mets.
New York Mets DFS SPIN
Mark Canha went 2-for-4 and hit a three-run homer Wednesday as the Mets topped the Nationals 9-2. Canha took Erick Fedde deep in the first inning today, and the Mets never looked back in earning their 101st win. It was Canha’s 13th homer of the year. He lost playing time for a spell after Tyler Naquin was acquired, but he still gave the Mets at least as much as they should have expected in hitting .266/.367/.403 this year. It will result in something close to a 122 OPS+, which would be eight points better than his career mark.
