Baltimore Orioles DFS SPIN
Ramon Urias A pair of doubles drove in three runs on Wednesday as the Orioles beat the Dodgers 8-5. Urias has played as a starter since 2021, but he’s getting used to playing a lesser role with Gunnar Henderson and Jordan Westburg. However, while the Orioles may like to use him more against lefties, his numbers are much better against righties this season. He has an .824 OPS against righties and a .577 OPS against lefties. He at least faced the southpaw today, and both of his doubles came against Julio Urias.
Tampa Bay Rays DFS SPIN
Randy Arrozarna He told reporters after Wednesday’s game against the Rangers that he had some right knee and back pain after hitting the left field wall. Arozarna hit the wall in left field to steal extra bases from Marcus Semin in the seventh inning Wednesday, but was able to stay in the game. It’s possible he’ll be ready for Thursday’s series opener against the Orioles, but it wouldn’t be surprising to see Tampa Bay give him some time to rest and recover. This is a situation that fantasy managers should monitor closely.

Orioles vs Rays MLB betting predictions
Given the current state of the Rays, I’m betting on the underdog tonight. Tyler Glassnow has a superb 3.78 ERA on the season and was dominant in his last start, allowing six runs on seven hits and two walks with seven strikeouts against the Royals last Saturday. That said, Glasno was rocked by the Orioles last season, giving up six runs on six hits with seven strikeouts and two walks in just 4 1/3 innings. Kyle Gibson, meanwhile, faced the Rays on May 8 and allowed two runs on six hits with four strikeouts and two walks over six innings. Tampa Bay struggles aggressively.
