New York Yankees Fantasy Spin

Gleyber Torres is uncertain for Saturday's game against the Rays after being hit on the elbow during Friday's game. Yankees' manager Aaron Boone said after Friday's game that they'll monitor the swelling in the morning before making a determination about his availability. Either way, it doesn't sound like he'll require a trip to the injured list, though he may miss a day or two.

Tampa Bay Rays Fantasy Spin

Austin Meadows (thumb) didn’t show any rust in his return from the injured list Friday against the Yankees, going 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and a walk. Meadows ended up missing nearly three weeks with a right thumb strain, but you wouldn’t know it by how he looked at the plate on Friday. The 24-year-old actually holds a six-game hitting streak dating back to mid-April. Meadows has enjoyed quite the breakout so far this season, with a .359/.432/.718 batting line with seven homers, 21 RBI, three steals, and 12 runs scored in 21 games.

Furthermore, following last night’s 4-3 victory, the Yankees are now 4-1 in their last five games versus the Rays and are 4-1 in their last five games at Tropicana Field.
