Arizona Diamondbacks DFS SPIN
Alek Thomas is not in the Diamondback’s starting lineup for Sunday’s finale against the Twins. Alek Thomas and Jake McCarthy appear to be splitting time 50/50 since Arizona acquired Tommy Pham in a trade with the Mets earlier this week. If this trend continues, it will make both players very difficult to roster in anything other than deep leagues where five outfielders are rostered.
Minnesota Twins DFS SPIN
Ryan Jeffers hit a pair of homers, doubled and knocked in four runs as the Twins trounced the Diamondbacks 12-1 on Saturday. Jeffers finally did it. He’s been far better than Christian Vázquez offensively all season, but only tonight did Rocco Baldelli finally acknowledge that it was time to start playing him more. Jeffers is batting .292/.392/.503 this season, compared to .226/.292/.307 for Vázquez. Still, Vázquez has continued to play a little more than half the time anyway. We imagine Jeffers will sit Sunday in a day game after a night game, but he might, finally, for the first time all year, start at catcher in consecutive games this week.

Diamondbacks vs. Twins MLB BETTING PREDICTION
Gallen is 11-5 with a 3.41 ERA, but is 2-4 with a 4.93 ERA in 12 road starts this season compared to 9-1 with a 1.96 ERA in 11 starts at Chase Field. On the other side, Keuchel will make his first start of the season after he had his contract selected from Triple-A Saint Paul on Thursday. He’s been released by three teams since the start of the 2022 season and over that span, he’s 2-9 with a 9.20 ERA in 14 starts that span 60 2/3 innings. I can’t imagine that he’ll throw anything but batting practice today and despite Arizona’s offensive problems, I still like the over today in Minnesota.
