Cleveland Indians Fantasy Spin

Jose Ramirez homered and doubled to help the Indians beat the Rangers 5-1 in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader. The Indians held the Rangers to four hits in a bullpen game in which no pitcher went more than 2 2/3 innings. Ramirez also homered to give the Indians their only two runs in the opener today. He's collected an extra-base hit in six straight game, and he's hit 11 homers in 28 games after totaling five in his first 82 games.

Minnesota Twins Fantasy Spin

Miguel Sano brought the heavies Wednesday, loading up with four RBI in a loss to Atlanta. Sano singled and scored in the sixth, then went for the jugular in the ninth by slugging a two-out, three-run homer off right-hander Josh Tomlin. It’s been the usual for Sano this year, who has balanced his 20 homers (he’s already the fifth Twin to reach that mark) with a horrifying 93 strikeouts in just 231 at-bats. He is the living embodiment of "feast or famine."
