Detroit Tigers Fantasy Spin
Mike Mahtook went 0-for-3 with a walk Monday and is off to an 0-for-16 start this season. Mahtook wasn't supposed to be a regular this year, but he's been needed to fill in for the injured JaCoby Jones in center field. The sooner the Tigers can return him to a reserve gig, the better off they'll be.
New York Yankees Fantasy Spin
Miguel Andujar said Tuesday that he's hoping to avoid surgery to address the small labrum tear in his right shoulder. Word came down late Monday that Andujar could eventually face season-ending surgery, but they'll go the rest and rehab route for the time being. For what it's worth, Andujar said the Yankees did a physical test which "came back with good results" and showed that the strength was there. We won't really know much else until he ramps up activity again in a couple of weeks. DJ LeMahieu will function as the Yankees' regular third baseman for now.
MLB Betting Trends
The Tigers are 2-5 in Jordan Zimmermann’s last seven road starts and are 15-38 in their last 53 road games.
The Yankees are 5-2 in Masahiro Tanaka’s last seven starts and are 47-22 in his last 69 home outings.
The Yankees are too expensive on the moneyline but we can get them cheaper on the runline. The Tigers draw a tough matchup against Tanaka, who allows a fair share of home runs but he has held both left and right-handed batters in check the last two seasons. And even without Giancarlo Stanton, the Yankees still boast plenty of offense and have a hitter-friendly matchup against Zimmermann, who allows plenty of hard contact to opposing hitters.
The Pick: New York Yankees -1.5 (-115)
