New York Yankees DFS SPIN

Aaron Judge had an RBI single, a sac fly, a walk and a stolen base Thursday against the Rays. Judge led off in this one, so he had to go for the steal. It was his third success in three tries this season. He's also been decent in the power-hitting department, but since he was leading off, it was all about getting on base tonight.

Tampa Bay Rays DFS Spin

Taylor Walls went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in the loss to the Yankees on Thursday. When we checked in on Walls 10 days ago, he was in the midst of a 2-for-31 slump. Now that's deepened to 3-for-53, leaving him at just .150/.248/.224 for the season. Once Wander Franco is closer to 100 percent, the Rays might need to send Walls down for a spell.


The Yankees have now won six of their last eight meetings with the Rays at Tropicana Field, are a perfect 6-0 in their last six games as a road underdog and are 13-3 in their last 16 divisional games. The Yankees have also won eight of their last 10 games against a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15, are 21-8 in their last 29 matchups against a left-handed starter and have won 12 of their last 16 road games versus a southpaw as well.
