New York Yankees Fantasy Spin

Making his return from Tommy John surgery, Didi Gregorius went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles against the Indians on Friday night. Batting sixth in the Yankees’ lineup, Gregorius was thrown out after attempting to stretch a single into a double in his first at-bat in the second inning. Still, it was a successful return for those who have had him stashed in fantasy leagues. The Yankees will likely give Gregorius some regular rest out of the gate, but he's in a great situation and can be a difference-maker the rest of the way.

Cleveland Indians Fantasy Spin

Carlos Santana popped a two-run homer and drew a pair of walks in Friday’s victory over the Yankees. Santana put the Indians ahead by taking Domingo German deep in the sixth. He’s now up to 12 homers on the year to go along with a strong .286/.405/.518 batting line. It’s been quite the resurgence in Cleveland after his disappointing season in a Phillies uniform.
