Minnesota Twins Fantasy Spin
Miguel Sano went 0-for-7 with three strikeouts on Thursday, dropping his average to ,195. It'd be understandable if Sano got off to a slow start in his return from the DL, but that's not what happened; he hit five homers in his first seven games back and was hitting .250/.348/.625 through 15 games. It's lately that things have gotten ugly, as he's 9-for-62 with 33 strikeouts in his last 16 games. He'll have to begin to turn it around to avoid losing playing time once Marwin Gonzalez comes off the IL.
Chicago White Sox Fantasy Spin
White Sox purchased the contract of LHP Ross Detwiler from Triple-A Charlotte. Detwiler holds a 3.98 ERA and 35/11 K/BB ratio over 43 innings covering eight starts for Charlotte this season. He will start Friday against the Twins and can be avoided for fantasy purposes.
