Minnesota Twins DFS SPIN
Byron Buxton hit a two-run homer and the Twins topped the White Sox 6-3 on Monday in extra-innings. On top of that, he also helped the Twins turn a triple play, which is fun. Buxton absolutely obliterated a two-run homer off of Johnny Cueto to turn a 1-0 Minnesota deficit into a 2-1 lead, and it travelled an estimated 449 feet. That gives the 28-year-old a total of 22 homers, and it puts him right around a 40-homer pace. As long as Buxton can stay on the field, he’s got a shot. Please do so, Lord Byron.
Chicago White Sox DFS SPIN
Liam Hendriks struck out the side in the eighth inning on Monday in his return from the injured list. Hendriks was summoned to work the eighth inning of a tie ballgame, following a nearly three-week absence due to a right forearm strain, and needed just 14 pitches (nine strikes) to dispatch the Twins. The 33-year-old stopper has converted 16 of his 19 save chances this season to go along with a 2.70 ERA and 40/8 K/BB ratio across 26 1/3 innings.
