Houston Astros DFS Notes

Yuli Gurriel went 3-for-4 while driving in a pair of runs in a rout of the White Sox. Gurriel also drew a walk. It was an outstanding first half of the campaign for the 37-year-old first baseman, and a four-reach day is a nice way to begin the final push. Many wondered if the infielder was done after a poor -- and short -- 2020 season. A .318 average, 10 homers and .862 OPS have shown that his demise was greatly exaggerated.

Chicago White Sox DFS Notes

Tim Anderson went 2-for-4 with a triple and a run scored on Friday in a loss to the Astros. Anderson got the White Sox off to a nice start with a triple to lead off the game, and he came around to score on Yoan Moncada's double. That was it in terms of runs, and the Astros wouldn't have another hit over the next eight innings. Anderson added that next hit in the ninth, and the two-hit day has the All-Star slashing .311/.347/.432. That'll work.
