Saturday’s MLB slate features two AL contenders going head to head when the White Sox take on the Astros, as well as two rising NL clubs battling when the Phillies meet the Giants. The Yankees, Mets, and Dodgers will also be in action.

Best Games To Watch

White Sox-Astros and Phillies-Giants are two good matchups of contending teams. The Brewers and Cardinals won’t be facing each other, but they’re expected to be in a tight NL Central race down the stretch and are worth checking out.

Fantasy Spotlight

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Fernando Tatis Jr. are electrifying the league with their flair and home runs. The two are tied for the home run lead with 22 each as of this writing and will continue to be big players for their respective clubs. Rafael Devers is another name to watch as one of Boston’s best hitters.

Rookies to Watch

Yermin Mercedes and Dylan Carlson will be in action and are rising stars on their respective clubs. Mercedes hasn’t found the fence in a long time, but will continue to get attention. Carlson has become an instrumental piece of the Cardinals lineup.
