New York Yankees DFS SPIN

Gleyber Torres went 3-for-4 with a stolen base on Sunday in the Yankees' shutout loss to the Mariners. Torres has unexpectedly morphed into a legitimate stolen base threat, recording a career-high 12 thefts over 407 plate appearances this season. He had just 12 steals over his first three seasons combined prior to this year. Unfortunately, the Yankees saw their five-game winning streak snapped in this one. They'll look to get back on track against the rebuilding Royals on Monday evening.

Kansas City Royals DFS Spin

Richard Lovelady struck out two batters in a perfect ninth inning to record the save against the Cardinals on Sunday. After a long two-hour rain delay, the Royals managed to take a one-run lead in the top of the ninth. Lovelady was summoned to close it out. He did just that by striking out two of the three batters he faced to lock down his first career save.
