New York Yankees DFS SPIN
Harrison Bader had three hits in Wednesday’s win over the Mets. Bader went 3-for-4 with a double, two singles, and two runs scored in the low-scoring affair. The oft-injured centerfielder has played just 52 games for the Yankees this year and is hitting .259/.281/.432. However, he has been cool over the summer with a .231/.265/.330 line since June 1st. His defense will keep him in the lineup regularly, but the Yankees would love for him to get going as they push for a playoff spot.
Baltimore Orioles DFS SPIN
Adley Rutschman homered in Wednesday’s loss to the Phillies. The home run was Adley’s 14th of the season, driving in three runs on a 396 foot blast off of Ranger Suarez. That gives the Baltimore youngster 46 RBI on the season, which is fourth in baseball amongst all catchers. The homer was his only hit of the afternoon, and the 1-for-4 effort brings his slash line to .268/.369/.428 in what has been a solid second season for the 25-year-old.

Yankees vs. Orioles MLB BETTING PREDICTION
Even though he says he felt like a “totally different pitcher” in his last outing, the fact remains that Rodriguez has struggled in his rookie season. He’ll make his 13th career start and first appearance against the Yankees and the first-year big-league is 2-2 with a 6.91 ERA this season. He’s allowed six runs in 10 2/3 innings in a pair of no-decisions and tonight will oppose Cole, who is 9-2 with a 2.78 ERA across 129 1/3 innings of work. Give me the Yankees.
