Boston Red Sox DFS SPIN
Red Sox manager Alex Cora said after Wednesday's victory that Xander Bogaerts will get a day off on Thursday. Bogaerts is the Red Sox hottest hitter -- collecting seven hits over his last two games -- so of course now is the time they decide to give him a rest and let him cool off. Fantasy managers in daily moves leagues should be sure to have an alternative option in place if possible.
Toronto Blue Jays DFS Spin
Alek Manoah gave up two runs over six innings in Saturday's win over the Astros. He also gave up seven hits and struck out five. His night started off on a bad note after Alex Bregman took him deep in the bottom of the first, but he managed to keep the Astros off the board over his final five innings pitched. The gifted right-hander has completed six innings in all three of his starts to begin the year. He'll be looking to keep the good times rolling on Thursday in a home matchup against the Red Sox.
