Chicago White Sox DFS SPIN
Tony La Russa told reporters after Thursday's win over the Royals that Yoan Moncada is likely to have treatment on his leg. Moncada, 26, didn't come out of the game on Thursday, but La Russa mentioned that he felt a "tug" in his leg. Scott Merkin of MLB.com notes that the third baseman was moving around fine, but fantasy managers might just want to take a close look before Friday's game.
New York Yankees DFS Spin
Giancarlo Stanton went 2-for-3 with a homer, three RBI and two walks Thursday against the Orioles. Stanton has 11 homers on the year, with nine of them coming in his last 19 games. Judging by all of the barreling he's been doing, he'd probably already have more like 15 or 16 in a normal year. Still, even with the deadened baseball, he's batting .296/.347/.563.
