New York Yankees DFS SPIN
Brett Gardner went 1-for-3 with a double, walk and RBI on Friday in a loss to the Red Sox. Gardner doubled in the only run for the Yankees in the second inning. The double with a walk is one of the better offensive games for the 37-year-old, which is pretty sad for those who remember when he was a strong fantasy option. Now, he's hitting .193/.313/.311.
Boston Red Sox DFS Spin
Rafael Devers homered twice and drove in five runs in Friday's 6-2 win for the Red Sox over the Yankees. Rafael Devers is having a good year. His homer in the fifth inning was a two-run shot to give the Red Sox a 3-1 lead, and it came off Gerrit Cole. The second homer was a three-run shot in the seventh that extended the lead to 6-1. That give Devers 26 homers, and the 24-year-old continues to pile up the RBI with 79 before the end of July. Devers is a special talent, and those numbers along with a .281/.357/.582 slash make him worthy of MVP consideration.
