Los Angeles Dodgers Fantasy Spin
Dodgers activated OF A.J. Pollock from the 60-day injured list. Pollock is finally ready to go after sitting out for more than two months with an infection in his right elbow that required the insertion of an antibiotic catheter line. The 31-year-old outfielder batted just .223/.287/.330 with two home runs and zero stolen bases through his first 28 games with Los Angeles, but there should be better numbers ahead with the elbow issue in his rear view
Boston Red Sox Fantasy Spin
Rafael Devers went 2-for-3 with a homer, two RBI and two runs scored on Friday in a rout of the Dodgers. Devers also doubled, and he drew a walk. He got the Red Sox on the board in the first with a solo shot off of Kenta Maeda, and it's the 17th round-tripper of the season for the 22-year-old. The double gives him 26 on the year, and Devers is now slashing .327/.381/.559 with 64 RBI and eight steals. Calling this a breakout season for the talented third baseman is an understatement.
