New York Yankees DFS SPIN

DJ LeMahieu went 2-for-4 and swatted his first home run of the season in a losing effort against the Rays on Friday afternoon in Tampa Bay. LeMahieu crushed his solo shot off of Hunter Strickland in the 8th inning, pulling the Yankees to within five runs at 10-5. That would be as close as they would get. He also doubled off of Rich Hill in the third inning and came around to score on a two-run single off the bat of Giancarlo Stanton. So far, so good for LeMahieu in the early going as he's hitting .310/.412/.588 with a homer and three RBI.

Tampa Bay Rays DFS SPIN

Austin Meadows had a nice day at the dish in Friday's victory over the Yankees, going 3-for-4 with a double and a pair of runs scored. He also drew a walk, reaching base safely in four of his five trips to the plate. With the three-hit attack, the 25-year-old is now hitting .269/.367/.577 with a pair of homers, five runs scored and two RBI -- though he's still looking for his first stolen base of the season.
