New York Yankees DFS Spin

Domingo German gave up one run in six innings while picking up a win on Saturday over the Orioles. German allowed just four hits in the contest, and he walked two while striking out six. The only run allowed was on a fielder's choice in the sixth, and that came with Baltimore down 8-0. German has now struck out exactly six hitters in each of the last five contests, and he's walked just six hitters over that time frame. The 28-year-old will have a chance to continue the good run on Thursday against the Rangers.

Texas Rangers DFS Spin

Dane Dunning took the loss on Saturday after allowing four runs on seven hits and three walks to the Astros over four innings of work. The Rangers right-hander surrendered all four runs in the first inning, including a two-run homer to Carlos Correa, but Texas was never able to complete a comeback in the game to bail out the 26-year-old. The first inning has been an issue all season for Dunning who holds a 10.13 ERA during the first frame in 2021 so far. The righty will enter his next matchup with the Yankees with a 4.34 ERA and 1.42 WHIP over 37 1/3 innings with 42 punchouts.
