Los Angeles Angels DFS SPIN
Shohei Ohtani went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Saturday's loss to the Indians. Nothing doing for Ohtani against a masterful Triston McKenzie on Saturday afternoon. It happens. Overall this season, the two-way star is working to a .269/.363/.638 triple-slash with 40 homers, 88 RBI and 18 steals in 119 games while pitching to a 2.79 ERA and 120/39 K/BB ratio across 18 starts. The numbers speak for themselves.
Cleveland Indians DFS Spin
Jose Ramirez went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run, a double and two runs scored in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Angels. Ramirez had perhaps the biggest hit of the contest, swatting a three-run home run off Reid Detmers in the third inning to boost the Indians to an early 3-0 lead. With starter Triston McKenzie dealing on the mound, that would be all that the Tribe really needed for the win. Overall this season, Ramirez is working to a .259/.344/.552 triple-slash with 29 home runs, 79 RBI and 15 steals in 112 games played. He has now homered in three consecutive contests.
