Chicago White Sox DFS Notes
Reynaldo Lopez was hit hard in Saturday's no-decision against the Royals, giving up three runs on three hits in his four innings of work. Lopez walked one and struck out one on the night. All of the damage done against him came in the third inning, where Cam Gallagher delivered an RBI single and then rode home on Salvador Perez's two-run blast. Lopez was lifted after just 65 pitches (42) strikes in this one. He'll carry a 2.08 ERA and 0.72 WHIP into a likely matchup against the Red Sox next weekend.
Oakland A’s DFS Notes
Sean Manaea surrendered two runs on five hits over seven innings while taking a no-decision in Friday's 11-10 loss to the Blue Jays. Manaea was wheeling and dealing throughout the start, fanning nine Jays without walking a batter. The only runs to score on his watch came when Teoscar Hernandez bopped a two-run homer in the fourth inning. The A's held an 8-2 advantage heading into the bottom of the eighth but Manaea ended up with a no-decision, rather than a win, when the Jays erupted for six runs in the frame to tie up the game. Up next on the docket for Manaea, a home showdown with the White Sox. The 29-year-old southpaw will bring a 3.91 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 165/36 K/BB ratio (149 2/3 innings) into that outing.
