Pittsburgh Pirates DFS SPIN
Henry Davis went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in a loss to the Phillies Tuesday night. Since returning from the injured list with a right-hand injury on September 15, the 24-year-old has only played the field twice. Tuesday was no different, but he connected with his season’s seventh homer in a tough loss to the Phillies. It seems like his catching days are over, as he hasn’t started behind the plate in the majors, and he will only be outfield eligible at the start of draft season.
Philadelphia Phillies DFS SPIN
Bryson Stott went 1-for-4 with one strikeout and a stolen base Tuesday night against the Pirates. Stott must be a huge fan of the rule changes MLB implemented before the season. He stole his 31st base of the season Tuesday night, and he has easily blown past his previous career high of 12 swipes, which came last season. To go along with all those steals, the 25-year-old is also hitting .277/.332/.439, an outstanding follow-up to his rookie campaign.
