New York Yankees DFS SPIN
Domingo German was lifted after allowing three runs in three innings Wednesday against the Angels. German could have cruised to a win after getting seven runs in the bottom of the first tonight, but he was shaky throughout. On the plus side, between the long rain delay and Aroldis Chapman's meltdown, no one is going to much remember German's poor showing. German has a 4.50 ERA through 15 starts.
Seattle Mariners DFS Spin
Yusei Kikuchi picked up the win on Thursday after tossing seven strong innings of one-run ball as the Mariners defeated the Blue Jays 7-2. The southpaw had his entire arsenal working against Toronto, generating a 36 percent whiff rate on his four-seam fastball and a 50 percent whiff rate of his changeup. Kikuchi has tossed his last three games against the Rays, White Sox, and Blue Jays in which he went 3-0 while allowing only three runs over 19 2/3 innings. That is very impressive. The Seattle left-hander now carries a 3.18 ERA this season with a 1.03 WHIP over 93 1/3 frames with 93 punchouts. Kikuchi will look to keep this momentum going when 30-year-old takes on the Yankees next week in Seattle.
Yankees vs. Mariners Betting Prediction
The Yankees are now 22-5 in their last 27 games played in Seattle and are 43-19 in their last 61 games versus the Mariners overall.
