Nelson Velasquez hits solo home run Monday

Nelson Velasquez hit his first major league home run in a 5-2 extra inning loss to Milwaukee on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Velasquez is slashing .303/.378/.515 with one home run, four RBIs, one stolen base, and six runs scored in his first 14 games. Depending on who the Cubs sell at the trade deadline, the 23-year-old could begin to see more playing time. If you have a free roster spot, he could be worth a speculative add as we get closer to the trade deadline.
