Tampa Bay Rays DFS SPIN

Rays manager Kevin Cash indicated that Randy Arozarena (COVID-19) could rejoin the Rays as soon as Tuesday. Arozarena missed the weekend series against the Orioles after landing on the COVID-19 injured list for a close contact. The outfielder himself has not exhibited any symptoms and has taken several negative tests. It sounds like he should be ready to go following the team's off-day on Monday.

Boston Red Sox DFS Spin

J.D. Martinez went 4-for-5 with three RBI on Sunday, but it wasn't enough as the Red Sox fell to the Blue Jays. Martinez sat out Saturday's game due to a non-COVID related illness, but made quite an impact in his return. The 33-year-old designated hitter ripped an RBI double off lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu in the second inning, and also drilled a two-run single off righty reliever Patrick Murphy with two outs in the fourth inning. He's put together a phenomenal bounce-back campaign, slashing 290/.355/.533 with 71 runs scored, 21 homers and 71 RBI across 454 plate appearances.
