Kansas City Royals Fantasy Spin
Adelberto Mondesi went 1-for-3 with a single, a walk, and two stolen bases Friday against the Rangers. Mondesi is now up to 20 steals on the year, which leads the majors by a significant margin. Three players (Jose Ramirez, Mallex Smith, and Tim Anderson) are tied for second with 14 each.
Texas Rangers Fantasy Spin
Joey Gallo smoked a go-ahead grand slam in Friday’s 6-2 victory over the Royals. The Rangers tied things up before Gallo crushed one to straight-away center field at an estimated 457 feet. It stood up as the decisive blow in the ballgame. Gallo now has 16 homers and 39 RBI through 50 games while posting a .272/.415/.633 batting line. If he can maintain even a decent batting average, we’re talking about a fantasy stud here.
