Cleveland Indians Fantasy Spin

Carlos Santana went 3-for-5 and knocked in three RBI in a loss to the Yankees on Saturday. He plated Francisco Lindor and Oscar Mercado with a single in the first inning to give his club a short-lived lead. He drove in Lindor again with another single in the fifth frame. Santana has been swinging a potent bat all season long and is poised to annihilate his career highs in nearly every category. He is slashing .293/.414/.551 with 29 home runs, 78 RBI and 89 runs scored through 121 games.

New York Yankees Fantasy Spin

Gleyber Torres drilled two solo home runs in a 6-5 triumph over the Indians on Saturday. Torres has been white-hot at the plate and today was no exception. He stroked bases-empty homers off Zach Plesac and Nick Wittgren and now has 29 longballs on the season. He is slashing .284/.348/.537 with 73 RBI and 79 runs scored in 113 games. The 22-year-old middle infielder has proven his rookie season was not a fluke and that he is here to stay as a perennial All Star-caliber performer.
