New York Yankees DFS Notes

Oakland A’s DFS Notes
Starling Marte went 0-for-4 but still managed to steal two bases during the Athletics victory over the Yankees on Saturday. The star outfielder reached base on a throwing error in both the third inning and fifth inning for those confused by the logistics. Marte becomes the first player in MLB history to record 20-plus stolen bases in both the American and National Leagues in the same season. The 32-year-old leads the majors with 42 stolen bases and sits 17 above Trea Turner in the National League. Marte is going to appear on quite a few championship rosters in fantasy this season.
