Boston Red Sox DFS Notes

Christian Vazquez went 3-for-4 and homered Wednesday as the Red Sox edged the Rays 3-2. Vazquez's homer was just his sixth in 427 plate appearances this year. In 2019, he hit 23 in 521 plate appearances, and last season, he finished with seven in 189 plate appearances. The three-hit game was also his first since June 18.

Tampa Bay Rays DFS Notes

Wander Franco hit a two-run homer and doubled Wednesday against the Red Sox. The homer gave the Rays their only runs of the night. Franco's on base streak sits at 32 games, and he's hitting .277/.339/.459 in 242 plate appearances since being called up. The only disappointing thing is that he hasn't attempted a steal in six weeks or pulled off a successful one in two months.
