Seattle Mariners DFS Notes
Abraham Toro went 2-for-3 with a double and two RBI on Monday in a loss to the Astros. Toro doubled home the only two runs in this game for Seattle. The infielder also drew a walk, and the three-reach game has his slash at .269/.348/.426 in his time with Houston and Seattle. There's been some ups and downs for the 24-year-old, but there's been more good than bad -- particularly since the trade to the Mariners near the deadline.
Houston Astros DFS Notes
Kyle Tucker went 3-for-4 with three runs scored and two RBi on Monday in a blowout win over the Mariners. Tucker has been a multi-hit machine as of late. The three hits give him at least two knocks in three-of-four games, and it's the seventh game with multiple hits since he came off the injured list on August 25. That hot streak has seen his average rise from .272 to .286. Combine that with 24 homers, 78 RBI and 12 steals, and Tucker has had a very nice 2021 season.
