Baltimore Orioles DFS Spin

Anthony Santander (oblique) is good to go for Opening Day, per Orioles manager Brandon Hyde. Santander tweaked his oblique last Tuesday, but it turned out to be a relatively minor issue and he should be in the starting lineup for Thursday afternoon's opener against the Red Sox. The 26-year-old outfielder registered an impressive .890 OPS with 11 home runs and 32 RBI in 37 games played last season for Baltimore.

Boston Red Sox DFS Spin

Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Christian Vazquez (eye) is ready for Friday's rescheduled opener. Vazquez will get another day to rest his bruised eye after Thursday's game got rained out. He got struck by a throw late in camp and needed stitches, but it never seemed like an overly serious concern.
