Boston Red Sox DFS SPIN
Trevor Story (illness) has rejoined the Red Sox but is unlikely to return to the lineup Tuesday. Story is battling a non-COVID related illness and is still feeling weak. The hope is that he'll be ready to play by Wednesday, but we'll have to wait to see how he progresses.
Detroit Tigers DFS Spin
Javier Baez hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the eighth to lead the Tigers to a 3-1 win over the Red Sox on Monday. Ryan Brasier got Baez to swing and miss at a slider to begin the at-bat. He then threw a slider in the dirt for a ball. His remaining four pitches were all fastballs, for some reason, and after Baez fouled off two in a row, he lined up the fourth one and hit it 396 feet. It was his first homer for the Tigers and 150th of his career.
