Player Notes

  • Castellanos drives in go-ahead run in 12th inning
    Nick Castellanos went 3-for-5 with a homer and three RBI on Saturday to help the Reds to a 6-5 win over the Rockies in 12 innings. 

    Advice: Castellanos doubled in the go-ahead run in the 12th to make it 5-4, and as you can see from that score above, his run scored on a Eugenio Suarez fielder's choice played big. The homer was the 29-year-old's 10th of the season, and came off of Jhoulys Chacin in the third inning. It's been an excellent second season for the outfielder in Cincinnati. As he's driven in 25 runs and is slashing .326/.377/.637 over the first six weeks. One can't help but wonder if Castellanos could be a trade candidate if the Reds are still shaky at this point in July.  NBCSportsEDGE.com 36 minutes ago
  • Hampson triples, steals base in extra-innings loss
    Garrett Hampson tripled and stole a base on Saturday in an extra-innings loss to the Reds on Saturday. 

    Advice: Hampson also drew a walk. The steal is the eighth of the season, and he's been thrown out just once in nine attempts. The .258 average leaves fantasy managers wanting, but the .470 slugging mark along with those thefts make Hampson a solid -- if unspectacular -- fantasy option.  NBCSportsEDGE.com 36 minutes ago
  • Mitch Haniger goes deep for AL-leading 12th homer
    Mitch Haniger launched a solo home run on Saturday night versus Cleveland.

    Advice: Haniger went 2-for-4 on the evening; his solo shot home run happened in the first inning, off Triston McKenzie. It was a no-doubter that traveled 438 feet, and left Haniger’s bat at 107.4 miles per hour. This was Haniger’s 12th home run of the year; he’s currently at the top of the American League home run leaderboard, formerly tied with Jose Ramirez and Shohei Ohtani. The 30-year-old has a .859 OPS over 165 overall plate appearances. NBCSportsEDGE.com 41 minutes ago
  • Grisham has three-hit night in easy victory
    Trent Grisham went 3-for-5 with a run scored on Saturday in a blowout win over the Cardinals. 

    Advice: Grisham picked up singles with all three hits. Not that there's anything wrong with that, and Pham has shown plenty of pop as seen in his .492 slugging percentage. Grisham was considered a volatile fantasy option coming into the 2021 season, but so far, the 24-year-old has been an excellent option with a .304 average, five homers and six steals in 31 games.  NBCSportsEDGE.com 54 minutes ago
  • Bader has two hits, homer in blowout loss to SD
    Harrison Bader went 2-for-4 with a homer on Saturday in a blowout loss to the Padres. 

    Advice: The Cardinals hit three homers in this contest, which is good. All of them were solo shots and they were the only runs in the game, which is less good. Bader has swung the bat well since coming off the injured list, and has his fourth homer of the season in just 15 games. Bader hasn't shown this kind of offensive prowess in the past, but at the age of 26, it's not completely out of question that this is the breakout season for him. It'd be a mistake to bet on it right now, however.  NBCSportsEDGE.com 54 minutes ago
