Oakland A’s DFS SPIN
Cole Irvin hurled seven scoreless innings on Monday in a win over the Angels. Irvin scattered seven hits and needed only 84 pitches to navigate seven flawless frames. He recorded three strikeouts and only handed out one free pass. The 27-year-old left-hander has delivered solid results as a mid-rotation starter for the Athletics this season, posting a solid 3.42 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 81/20 K/BB ratio across 113 innings (19 starts). He's lined up to face the Mariners at T-Mobile Park on Saturday night.
Seattle Mariners DFS Spin
Marco Gonzales allowed two runs over five innings on Tuesday in a win over the Rockies. Gonzales traded zeroes with Germán Márquez into the fifth inning until he gave up a colossal two-run homer to rookie Connor Joe. He finished with three strikeouts and also handed out three free passes. The soft-tossing 29-year-old lefty has recorded a calamitous 5.69 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 52/24 K/BB ratio across 61 2/3 innings (12 starts) this season. Simply put, he doesn't miss enough bats to make an impact outside of AL-only formats. He's not a recommended streaming option for fantasy managers when he faces the Athletics at home on Sunday afternoon.
