Kansas City Royals Fantasy Spin
Bubba Starling hit a three-run homer Monday in a losing cause against the Red Sox. It's still awfully unlikely that Starling becomes a quality regular, but he now has two more major league home runs than seemed at all probably a couple of years ago. He's hitting .250 with a 23/3 K/BB ratio through 76 plate appearances.
Boston Red Sox Fantasy Spin
Rafael Devers went 2-for-4 and hit his 23rd homer Monday in the Red Sox's 7-5 win over the Royals. The 23 homers have come in 80 games, as Devers went his first 32 games this year without ever leaving the yard. Devers currently leads the AL with 146 hits, 37 doubles and 258 total bases.
