New York Yankees DFS Notes
Anthony Rizzo finished 0-for-4 in the loss to the Blue Jays on Wednesday. Rizzo is hitting .252/.342/.409 with six homers and 19 RBI in 45 games for the Yankees. That's not dreadful, but it's also not what the team was hoping for in giving up two prospects for him.
Toronto Blue Jays DFS Notes
Bo Bichette went 3-for-4 with a pair of solo homers to lead the Blue Jays to a 6-5 win over the Yankees on Wednesday. The Jays badly needed this one in order to stay alive in the Wild Card race, and Bichette made it happen with his 27th and 28th homers of the year. He's at 101 RBI for the season, even though he's spent a lot of time hitting at the top of the order. Between he, Teoscar Hernandez, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Marcus Semien, the Blue Jays have four of the 16 players to reach 100 RBI this season.
