Houston Astros DFS Notes

Jose Altuve hit a three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth to give the Astros an 8-7 win over the Yankees on Sunday. Altuve golfed a Chad Green breaking ball 368 feet for a Crawford Box homer, completing a five-run, ninth-inning comeback. It was his 20th homer of the year, and it prevented the Astros from getting swept at home in the final series before the All-Star break.

Chicago White Sox DFS Notes

Eloy Jiménez (pectoral) drew a walk while going 0-for-2 on Tuesday for Triple-A Charlotte. It was his first game with the Knights after he went 3-for-7 in his time with High-A Winston-Salem. The 24-year-old slugger has missed all of the 2021 season while recovering from his strained pectoral, but is closing in on a return at the end of the month. What a boost he could provide the White Sox and fantasy managers if he's the player we saw in 2020.

Astros vs. White Sox MLB Betting Prediction

The Astros have won 16 of their last 21 meetings with the White Sox overall, are 4-0 in their last four road games and have won 20 of their last 27 games coming off a win as well.
