Boston Red Sox DFS SPIN

Kiké Hernandez homered twice, doubled and walked Monday as the Red Sox crushed the Blue Jays 13-4. Two homers, three runs scored and three RBI are all new season highs for Hernandez, who came into the night in a 1-for-17 slump. He hasn't been a very effective leadoff man for the Red Sox, but he has done well in the power department, especially lately. He has 13 homers, seven of which have come in his last 24 games.

Toronto Blue Jays DFS Spin

Nate Pearson is dealing with a sports hernia, but he's slated to get back on a mound next week. Pearson has seen multiple doctors about a lingering right groin issue, but the Blue Jays are relieved to finally have some clarity on the situation. He'll pitch as a reliever for the remainder of the season and could be an option for the major league club sooner rather than later. His fantasy upside will be limited in such a role, but the Blue Jays hope he can return to the rotation next year.
