Toronto Blue Jays Fantasy Spin

Freddy Galvis singled in the ninth inning to break up a no-hit bid by Trevor Bauer and two Indians relievers on Thursday. Trevor Bauer was pulled after seven innings despite having a no-hitter in progress. Galvis singled against closer Brad Hand to break up the no-hitter in the ninth inning and eventually came around to score on a double by Teoscar Hernandez. Galvis also walked three times in the ballgame. He has his slash line up to .318/.400/.500 with one home run and three RBI after eight games.

Cleveland Indians Fantasy Spin

Tyler Naquin went 2-for-4 and scored a run during Thursday's 4-1 win over the Blue Jays. He led off the seventh with a double and came around to score on a Jose Ramirez sacrifice fly. Naquin is getting a chance to start on a near-everyday basis for the Indians right now and has the talent to generate a decent amount of fantasy value. He has 600 career plate appearances (basically one full season's worth of playing time) and owns a .278/.336/.439 slash line with 17 home runs, 67 RBI and seven stolen bases. That sort of stat line can be useful in deep leagues.
