Boston Red Sox Fantasy Spin
Jackie Bradley homered for the second straight game Tuesday in Toronto. Bradley failed to go deep in his first 38 games of the season but has now homered in back-to-back contests. This one was a solo shot and came off of Sam Gaviglio in the eighth inning. He also added a single. We've seen Bradley go on extended hot streaks before and perhaps this is the beginning of one, but we need to see more.
Toronto Blue Jays Fantasy Spin
Rowdy Tellez smashed a pair of home runs and drove in five runs as the Blue Jays took down the Red Sox on Tuesday. Eduardo Rodriguez was the victim both times, as Tellez socked a two-run shot off of him in the fourth inning and a three-run blast off of him in the fifth. It was the first multi-homer game of the 24-year-old's career. Tellez is now up to eight long balls on the season, although this was his first in 15 games. He entered the night with just a .500 OPS across his previous 11 contests.
