Baltimore Orioles Fantasy Spin

Jonathan Villar went 3-for-4 with two stolen bases and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Astros. Villar had three singles and a walk on the afternoon, and when he gets on base that often it's a good bet that the 28-year-old is going to put his wheels to use. He did so in both the sixth and eighth innings, singling and stealing second base each time. He's now got 26 steals on the year, behind only Adalberto Mondesi in the American League. With the good day, Villar's season line is up to .271/.336/.443 with 15 homers, 52 RBI, 78 runs scored and those 26 stolen bases.

New York Yankees Fantasy Spin

Gio Urshela went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in a win over the Blue Jays on Sunday. The Yankees had just five hits on the day, so it's par for the course that Urshela had two of them. The impressive 27-year-old also scored the only run of the afternoon when, after he led off the fifth inning with a double, he came home to score on a Brett Gardner ground-rule double. Along with being one of the game's best defensive third basemen, Urshela has really come into his own as an offensive player since joining the Yankees. This year, he's hitting .323/.368/.572 across 97 games.
