Philadelphia Phillies DFS SPIN

Matt Moore gave up two runs over four innings while not factoring in the decision on Monday against the Cubs. When the starters in this game -- Moore and Zach Davies -- left, the score was 2-2. From that point on, it was Phillies 11, Cubs 1. Moore wasn't as good as his five scoreless frames against the Mets last Friday, but it was a decent enough outing; one that should allow him to make a few more starts. That being said, it'd be a mistake to stream him on Saturday against the Red Sox.

Boston Red Sox DFS Spin

Martín Pérez allowed just two runs -- one earned -- in 5 2/3 innings of work to pick up a win Monday against the Angels. Pérez was unfortunate to give up an unearned run, but also was fortunate that he only allowed two on the day. He gave up eight hits in the contest, and he issued a walk and struck out three. He was able to wiggle out of jams, however, and Pérez has his seventh win on the season with a not-horrible 3.89 ERA to pair with it. The southpaw will start the first-half finale against the Phillies on Sunday.
