Randy Arozarena walloped a grand slam on Sunday in the Rays' win over the Orioles. Arozarena put the finishing touches on the Rays' lopsided victory with a line-drive 410-foot shot to right-center field, which barely cleared the outfield fence, against righty reliever César Valdez in the seventh inning. It was his eighth round-tripper of the season and also snapped a 20-game homerless drought in the process. The 26-year-old outfielder has failed to replicate last season's historic postseason run, but he's been a solid five-category fantasy contributor nonetheless.

José Abreu went 3-for-5 with an RBI on Sunday, leading the White Sox to a three-game sweep against the Tigers with a 4-1 victory in the series finale. Abreu kicked off the scoring with an RBI single to right field off lefty reliever Tyler Alexander in the fourth inning. The 34-year-old first baseman has heated up over the last few weeks after a slow start to the 2021 campaign. He's hitting .262/.339/.475 with 31 runs scored, 11 home runs, 49 RBI and one steal over 254 plate appearances.
