Toronto Blue Jays DFS SPIN

Ross Stripling allowed just a solo homer in 5 2/3 innings of work, but didn't factor into the decision on Saturday against the Rays. Stripling allowed just two hits in the contest, and while he did issue three walks, he was able to fan five and keep the damage to just the one run. That blemish came on a Manuel Margot solo homer, and outside of that, it was an excellent outing for the 31-year-old right-hander. He sees his ERA dip to 4.06, but unfortunately didn't qualify for a win as Toronto gave him just a run of support before he left. Stripling will get a rematch with the Blue Jays on Friday in his final start of the first half.

Tampa Bay Rays DFS Spin

Taylor Walls doubled twice and knocked in two runs Friday as the Rays beat the Blue Jays 7-1. Wander Franco will almost surely prove better than Walls in the end, but to date, Walls has outproduced the fellow rookie while also playing superior defense. Walls is hitting .240/.336/.365 through 110 plate appearances.
