Chicago White Sox DFS Spin

Tim Anderson went 3-for-5 with a double, two runs scores, and a stolen base on Sunday in a 4-3 win over the Royals. Anderson started his day with a base hit in the first inning off of Brady Singer. He added another single in the fifth and stole his seventh base of the season before he scored on a two-run home run by Adam Eaton. The 27-year-old shortstop got the comeback started in the ninth with a double off of Wade Davis to lead off the inning. He'd score the tying run on a base hit by Yoan Moncada. Despite missing time earlier this season with a hamstring injury, Anderson has been one of the best five-category producers in fantasy with a .328 batting average, five home run, and seven steals over 129 plate appearances.

Max Kepler was lifted from Sunday's contest against the Athletics after tweaking his hamstring. Twins skipper Rocco Baldelli said after the game that the injury occurred late in the game. He'll presumably head for further testing to determine the severity of the injury. Fantasy managers who are relying on Kepler for next week should have a contingency option ready in the event that he's forced to miss a few games.
