Toronto Blue Jays DFS SPIN
Teoscar Hernández belted his 15th home run of the year in the Blue Jays' loss to the Rays on Wednesday. It was a fourth-inning solo shot off Ryan Yarbrough. He also poked a first-inning double off Jalen Beeks, basically accounting for all of the Jays' scoring in the afternoon tilt at Tropicana Field. Hernández has been in a nice groove at the plate in recent weeks, and his season OPS is up to .817.
Minnesota Twins DFS SPIN
Jhoan Duran worked a hitless eighth for a hold Wednesday versus the Tigers.Not that he had been picking up many saves anyway, but Duran figures to be a true setup man in Minnesota after the Jorge López acquisition. He's pitched eight scoreless innings in his last seven appearances, lowering his ERA to 2.11.
