Baltimore Orioles DFS Notes
Anthony Santander went 2-for-4 with an RBI on Sunday in the Orioles' loss to the Tigers. Santander smacked an RBI double to straightaway center field against lefty Tyler Alexander in the opening frame. He also added a two-out single in the third inning to record a multi-hit effort. The 26-year-old outfielder looked like a potential franchise cornerstone coming into the 2021 campaign, but has struggled to stay healthy and is hitting an underwhelming .228/.278/.380 with six home runs across 260 plate appearances.
New York Yankees DFS Notes
Aroldis Chapman spun a perfect ninth inning on Sunday, guarding a two-run lead against the Marlins to net his 22nd save of the season. If the Yankees are going to have any hope of making the postseason, they need Chapman to be at his best over the final eight weeks of the regular season. So far, he's been really good, yielding just one run on two hits with a 15/5 K/BB ratio across nine innings since the All-Star break. He's also converted all six of his save chances during that span.

On the other side, the over is 5-2 in the Yankees’ last seven home games when facing a right-handed starter and is 37-17-4 in their last 58 games when facing an opponent with a winning percentage below .400.
