Los Angeles Angels Fantasy Spin

Shohei Ohtani went 1-for-4 with a bases-loaded walk, a stolen base, and a run scored Friday’s win over the Rays. While he wasn’t credited with an RBI, Ohtani was also in the middle of a botched double-play ball in the fourth inning. The 24-year-old sensation was understandably a little rusty after coming off the injured list, but he’s exploded this month by hitting .333 (15-for-45) with five homers and 14 RBI.

Tampa Bay Rays Fantasy Spin

Brandon Lowe is not in the starting lineup for the Rays against the Angels on Saturday. Angels left-hander Jose Suarez is starting today, so Lowe will watch from the dugout. Joey Wendle is starting at second base. The Rays shuffle their lineup on a daily basis and that leads to reduced opportunities for all of their best players. Tommy Pham leads the team with 238 at-bats, which ranks him 75th in the majors. Lowe is swinging a potent stick this year, slashing .289/.345/.548 with 14 home runs and 43 RBI in 228 at-bats. He has a solid .777 OPS versus lefties in his career and an .872 OPS versus righties
