New York Yankees Fantasy Spin
Clint Frazier (elbow) went 2-for-4 in the Yankees' loss to the Red Sox on Sunday. Frazier made an early exit from Saturday's game after taking a pitch off his left elbow, but X-rays came back negative and he looked plenty healthy in Sunday's series finale. The 24-year-old outfielder holds an .836 OPS with 10 home runs and 28 RBI in 41 games this season, though his defense remains a work in progress.
Toronto Blue Jays Fantasy Spin
Justin Smoak went 1-for-2 with an RBI and a pair of walks in the Blue Jays' loss to the Rockies on Sunday. Smoak got the Blue Jays on the board with an RBI fielder's choice in the first inning, but that was all they could muster offensively as the Rockies stormed back with five unanswered runs. The 32-year-old first baseman remains a viable corner infielder in deeper formats, hitting .240/.383/.475 with 27 runs scored, 12 homers and 33 RBI across 222 plate appearances.
MLB Betting Trends
The Yankees are 35-17 in their last 52 road games and 36-16 in their last 52 games overall.
The Blue Jays have dropped 21 of 27 overall and are 1-4 in their last five home games.
The Yankees have been profitable when Masahiro Tanaka starts versus the Blue Jays. They’re 7-1 in his last eight starts versus Toronto overall and 5-2 in his last seven outings at Rogers Centre. The Yankees have also won 10 of the last 13 meetings in this series and are 4-1 in their last five games in Toronto. While all of those trends apply to the money line, there’s better value with the Yankees’ runline odds.
Tuesday MLB Prediction: New York Yankees -1.5 (-120)
