Los Angeles Angels Fantasy Spin

David Fletcher (shoulder) is back in the Angels' starting lineup on Thursday night against the Rays. He will start at shortstop and bat leadoff versus Tampa Bay after missing a handful of games with left shoulder discomfort. The 25-year-old boasts a .308/.363/.434 batting line with four home runs, 23 RBI, five stolen bases, and 32 runs scored in 63 games this season.

Tampa Bay Rays Fantasy Spin

Austin Meadows is not in the Rays' lineup Thursday against the Angels. Meadows fouled a ball off his foot on Tuesday, but he was able to serve as the Rays' designated hitter on Wednesday. This looks to be a routine day of rest. Travis d'Arnaud is at DH on Thursday and Tommy Pham, Kevin Kiermaier, and Avisail Garcia will start across the outfield.
