Cleveland Indians Fantasy Spin
Jose Ramirez went 3-for-5 with an RBI double, a walk, a stolen base, and two runs scored Friday against the Twins. Ramirez has now hit safely in eight straight games and has multi-hit games in three straight. It has been a remarkable turnaround for the 26-year-old. His batting average sat at .198 back on June 12, but he’s now at a much more respectable .253.
Minnesota Twins Fantasy Spin
Eddie Rosario went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in Friday’s loss to the Indians. Jason Castro’s fifth inning solo shot was the only other offense for the Twins. Rosario’s blast was the 226th home run by the Twins this season, setting a new franchise record. The 2018 Yankees set the record with the most home runs by a team (267), but the Twins could be poised to blow that out of the water.

The Indians are 21-7 in their last 28 games when their opponent allows five runs or more in their previous contest.
