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.


The Blue Jays are 31-15 in their last 46 games against the Twins in Minnesota, are 4-0 in their last four games coming off a loss and are 6-1 in their last seven games versus opponents from the American League Central. On the other side, the Twins are 1-4 in their last five games versus a team with a winning record, are 6-22 in their last 28 games following a win and are 1-6 in their last seven home games when facing a right-handed starter.
