Tony La Russa told reporters after Thursday's win over the Royals that Yoan Moncada is likely to have treatment on his leg. Moncada, 26, didn't come out of the game on Thursday, but La Russa mentioned that he felt a "tug" in his leg. Scott Merkin of MLB.com notes that the third baseman was moving around fine, but fantasy managers might just want to take a close look before Friday's game.

New York Yankees DFS Spin

Giancarlo Stanton went 2-for-3 with a homer, three RBI and two walks Thursday against the Orioles. Stanton has 11 homers on the year, with nine of them coming in his last 19 games. Judging by all of the barreling he's been doing, he'd probably already have more like 15 or 16 in a normal year. Still, even with the deadened baseball, he's batting .296/.347/.563.


The White Sox are just 2-10 in their last 12 games versus the Yankees and are 16-37 in their last 53 games in the Bronx. Chicago is also a brutal 14-41 in its last 55 games as an underdog and has dropped four of its last five games following a win. Meanwhile, the Yankees are 15-3 in their last 18 games following a loss, are 40-12 in their last 52 games versus AL Central opponents and have won 22 of their last 29 games when playing the first game of a series.
