Tampa Bay Rays DFS SPIN
Rays manager Kevin Cash told reporters after Sunday's game that Yandy Díaz was held out of the lineup for the second consecutive game simply to rest. The Rays want him to be fully healthy and ready to go for the start of the postseason, so they're taking it easy on him down the stretch. Cash indicated that Díaz would only play in one game during their final series of the regular season against the the Red Sox that begins in Boston on Monday.
Boston Red Sox DFS SPIN
Making his first start in a week, Bobby Dalbec had a solo homer and a two-run single to drive in all three Boston runs Sunday against the Blue Jays. Maybe his final appearance for the team. The Red Sox are about to activate Eric Hosmer from the IL, which could result in Dalbec's demotion tomorrow. There's still reason to think that Dalbec could be something close to an average MLB first baseman for a few years. The Red Sox, though, seem fine with moving on.
