Tampa Bay Rays DFS Notes

Drew Rasmussen was lifted after allowing three runs in two-plus innings Sunday against the Red Sox. Rasmussen gave up six hits, including a homer to lead off the first and three straight to begin the third. After throwing just 33 pitches, he should be available later in the series against the Red Sox. He might be needed, too, as the Rays pitching staff is pretty depleted at the moment.

Boston Red Sox DFS Notes

Red Sox manager Alex Cora said after Sunday's victory that Eduardo Rodriguez is likely to start in Game 4 on Monday. Nick Pivetta had been scheduled to start for the Red Sox on Monday, but he was forced to work four innings out of the bullpen and earned a victory over the Rays in Game 3 on Sunday. Rodriguez was pulled in the second inning of his start against the Rays in Game 1 -- and the Rays are known to crush left-handed pitching -- so Rodriguez could have another short leash in this one.
