New York Yankees DFS SPIN
Giancarlo Stanton drilled a pair of homers Friday in the Yankees' 5-3 win over the Indians. The homers left his bat at 118 mph and 115.7 mph. The 118-mph shot was the hardest-hit homer of 2021. Stanton has five homers in 67 plate appearances this season. He's not making consistent contact, which is why he's batting just .180, but he can still crush the ball like no one else.
Cleveland Indians DFS SPIN
Jose Ramirez reached all four times up Friday, going 2-for-2 with two walks against the Yankees. The rest of the Indians combined to reach base safely five times. Ramirez has to be pretty used to this kind of thing by now. He's yet to really warm up this year, but he has four homers and four steals after 18 games.
