Cleveland Indians DFS Notes
Myles Straw went 1-for-3 with a solo homer against the White Sox on Sunday. Straw hit eighth for Cleveland in his second start since he was acquired from the Astros. He scored the only run of the day for the team with a leadoff homer off of Jimmy Lambert in the third inning. It was just the third homer of the season over 378 plate appearances. The 26-year-old outfielder is hitting .261/.337/.333 on the year with 17 stolen bases.
Toronto Blue Jays DFS Notes
Marcus Semien crushed his 25th home run of the season on Sunday, leading the Blue Jays to a three-game sweep of the Royals with a 5-1 victory in the series finale at Rogers Centre. Semien walloped a titanic 411-foot two-run shot to center field off righty Brad Keller in the third inning. It was the first time he's gone deep since July 24 and his lone hit in four at-bats. The 30-year-old All-Star second baseman has been one of the most valuable free agent signings from last offseason, slashing .275/.341/.530 with 77 runs scored, 25 homers, 66 RBI and 10 stolen bases across 455 plate appearances.
