Tampa Bay Rays Fantasy Spin

Austin Meadows went 4-for-5 with a home run, four RBI, a walk, and a stolen base in the Rays' 10-5 win over the White Sox on Tuesday. It was the first career four-hit game for Meadows, who boasts a .303/.386/.564 batting line with three home runs and 10 RBI through 11 games this season for a Tampa Bay team that sits at the very top of the American League East standings with a record of 9-3. The 23-year-old outfielder has also now stolen two bases. He's looking like a must-own and must-play at this point in all standard mixed fantasy leagues.

Chicago White Sox Fantasy Spin

Eloy Jimenez finished 2-for-4 with an RBI in a loss to the Rays on Tuesday. Jimenez hasn't exactly been tearing the cover off the ball in his first taste of the majors, but he does have five multi-hit games. It's just that all of his 11 hits so far have been singles. The 22-year-old top outfield prospect should begin flashing the power soon enough and seems like maybe a good buy-low in fantasy.

MLB Betting Trends

Tampa Bay

The Rays have beaten American League Central opponents in six of their last seven games versus the division.

Chicago

The White Sox have dropped nine of their last 11 games when their opponent scores five runs or more in their previous game.

Prediction:

I expect the Rays to feast on White Sox pitching again this afternoon. Starter Reynaldo Lopez owns a 5.01 ERA and while his SIERA of 4.19 suggests that he’s due some positive regression, that doesn’t mean he’s been effective. He owns an 18.7% strikeout rate and a 9.8% walk rate and he’ll face a Rays lineup that, while it lacks power, puts the ball in play consistently. You can find the Rays’ runline odds at +110, maximizing the value with Tampa.

The Pick: Tampa Bay Rays -1.5 (+110)
