Toronto Blue Jays DFS SPIN
Zack Collins smacked a long solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Red Sox. Collins greeted Nathan Eovaldi with a mammoth 432-foot blast to center field to lead off the second inning. It opened the scoring but wound up being the Blue Jays' lone tally of the night. The long ball was the second in three games for Collins, who is now 8-for-15 with two homers and two doubles in his last four contests. With Alejandro Kirk struggling, it's possible Collins is earning some starts in the designated hitter spot when Danny Jansen (oblique) returns, although a lot can happen between now and then.
Boston Red Sox DFS Spin
Trevor Story doubled in a run and drew a walk on Tuesday against the Blue Jays. Offense was difficult to come by in this one, with the Red Sox managing to squeak out a win on Story's RBI double and a Connor Wong sac fly. Things haven't totally clicked for Story yet, but he does have at least one hit in each of his six games since Opening Day.
