Chicago White Sox Fantasy Spin
Welington Castillo went 0-for-3 with a strikeout on Saturday against the Yankees and is now batting just .083 on the year. Castillo has just two hits so far this season and finds himself in the middle of an 0-for-20 slide. After serving an 80-game PED suspension last year, his two-year, $15 million deal hasn’t worked out as planned just yet. Given his past power production, he’s capable of being a top-10 fantasy catcher, but James McCann could push for additional at-bats if the struggles continue.
New York Yankees Fantasy Spin
Aaron Judge went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in Saturday’s 4-0 win over the White Sox. After the Yankees scratched across three runs in the seventh inning, Judge provided some insurance with an opposite-field poke which traveled just 335 feet into the short porch at Yankee Stadium. Not surprisingly, it was the shortest home run of his career. Still, it counts just the same. Judge has four homers and nine RBI through his first 14 games this season to along with a .275/.406/.529 batting line.
MLB Betting Trends
The White Sox have now lost 36 of their last 53 games at Yankee Stadium.
The Yankees are 5-1 in Masahiro Tanaka’s last six starts versus the White Sox.
With CC Sabathia making his season debut and Ivan Nova on the hill for the White Sox, I thought bettors could count on some offensive fireworks at Yankee Stadium yesterday. Instead, Sabathia dominated and Nova pitched better than anyone could have expected. The first game of this series was a high-scoring affair and yesterday the Yankees scored the only four runs in the game. I’m more apt to believe today will also be relatively low-scoring. Tanaka has issues allowing home runs, but the White Sox have not homered off the Yankees’ starter in 72 at bats and have just five runs to show for their collective .278 batting average versus Masahiro. Meanwhile, the Yankees are hitting just .212 of Chicago starter Carlos Rodon in 33 at bats. That’s when they’re healthy and at full strength, which they’re not. There’s a reason why the total is only 8.5 for today’s game despite the matchup being played at Yankee Stadium.
The Pick: White Sox/Yankees UNDER 8.5
