Minnesota Twins Fantasy Spin
Jonathan Schoop homered to give the Twins one of their three runs in Tuesday's win over the White Sox. Because of Luis Arraez's surprising showing, Schoop has been a backup for the Twins of late. However, he's come through with three homers and two doubles in his five starts over the last two weeks. That won't hurt his case for a little more playing time.
Chicago White Sox Fantasy Spin
Leury Garcia returned to action on Tuesday and went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts against the Twins. Garcia left Sunday's game with a shin contusion. He's batting .232/.253/.358 this month, so his spot at the top of the White Sox lineup could be in some jeopardy.
