VENUE: Yankee Stadium, New York, NY

Tampa Bay Rays DFS SPIN

Kevin Kiermaier (quad) is scheduled to take batting practice on the field prior to Friday's game against the Yankees. Rays skipper Kevin Cash said that Kiermaier will then take at-bats in a simulated game on Saturday. They'll then evaluate where he's at. Barring any setbacks, it sounds like he should be ready to rejoin the Rays active roster any day now.

New York Yankees DFS SPIN

Giancarlo Stanton homered to give the Yankees their only runs in Friday's loss to the Rays. Stanton is struggling to make consistent contact at the moment, but he still possesses as much power as anyone in the majors and, as long as he can stay healthy, he'll surely find his rhythm. He'll rank among the league leaders in homers and RBI if he can play in 140-150 games.

Rays vs. Yankees Betting Prediction

The Rays are now 16-5 in their last 21 meetings versus the Yankees and are 7-2 in their last nine meetings in New York. They’ve also won six out of their last eight games when playing the second game of a series and are 81-36 in their last 117 games when their opponent scored two runs or less in its previous game. The Yankees, meanwhile, are just 2-6 in their last eight games overall and have dropped four of their last five games coming off a loss.
