Oakland A’s DFS Notes

A.J. Puk pitched a perfect inning, striking out two, in his appearance Monday against the White Sox. For quite some time, Puk's minor league struggles suggested that he wouldn't contribute this year. However, he was able to turn it around in Triple-A, and he's pitched four scoreless innings, allowing only one hit and one walk, since returning from the minors. He should start to get a look in a setup role.

Chicago White Sox DFS Notes

Luis Robert went 3-for-4 with a homer, three runs scored and a steal Monday to lead the White Sox to a 5-2 win over the A's. No one would have complained much if Robert needed a little while to start hitting upon returning last week, but he's 9-for-24 with two homers and two doubles since coming off the IL. He also got his first steal since returning tonight. He's batting a rather stunning .328 in 128 plate appearances this season. As a rookie last year, he hit .233 in 227 plate appearances.

On the other side, the under is 2-0-2 in the White Sox’ last four games as an underdog and is 3-1-1 in their last five games as a home dog.
