Chicago White Sox DFS SPIN

Tim Anderson hit a game-tying homer in the ninth and delivered a go-ahead single in the 11th as the White Sox beat the Rays 7-5 on Friday. Anderson finished the night 3-for-6 and scored four times. It's taken a toll on his OBP that he's gone 24 games without a walk, but he's still picking up plenty of hits, including some very big ones. The homer tonight was his 14th of the year, and he's scored 78 runs in 104 games.

Tampa Bay Rays DFS Spin

Luis Patino allowed two runs on two hits and five walks with two strikeouts over three innings in a no-decision against the Twins on Sunday. Patino struggled to find the zone on Sunday against the Twins, throwing 36-of-69 pitches for strikes while walking five batters. He walked the first two batters in the first inning before Josh Donaldson drove in a run with a single. One more walk would load the bases before Patino could record an out. He was fortune to come out of the 33-pitch first inning with just two runs on the board after Trevor Larnach brought a run across on a groundout. Patino tossed two more innings before his day was done. The 21-year-old right-hander has a 4.73 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, and 48 strikeouts across 45 2/3 innings. He's in line for a matchup against the White Sox in Tampa Bay on Friday.
