New York Yankees Fantasy Spin

DJ LeMahieu went 3-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored during Thursday's win over the Blue Jays. He laced an RBI-double in the second inning and followed that up with a run-scoring single in the fourth. This was the second three-hit game in a row for LeMahieu and he now has an 11-game hitting streak going. His .323 batting average ranks 11th in the majors. He has seven home runs, 40 RBI and 39 runs scored in 56 games. LaMahieu is a major reason why the Yankees have been able to remain in first place in the AL East despite being ravaged by injuries.

Cleveland Indians Fantasy Spin

Roberto Perez went 1-for-2 with a home run and two RBI in Thursday's loss to the Twins. He banged a solo homer versus starter Jose Berrios in the fifth inning, then added another RBI with a sacrifice fly in the seventh. Perez is serving as the Indians' primary catcher this year and is doing a pretty good job. He has a .799 OPS with 10 home runs and 22 RBI in 132 at-bats.
