AL contenders meet Sunday as the Chicago White Sox and Houston Astros conclude their four-game series. The Oakland Athletics and New York Yankees will also be in the AL mix and meet each other Sunday afternoon. The St. Louis Cardinals and Atlanta Braves cap off the day with Sunday Night Baseball.

Best Games To Watch

White Sox-Astros and Athletics-Yankees are great games during the early afternoon slate. Phillies-Giants is a decent matchup from the late afternoon games given where both teams are in the standings.

Fantasy Spotlight

Lance McCullers Jr. and Nathan Eovaldi are two pitchers to look at in fantasy lineups. Fernando Tatis Jr. is a strong play as well. Salvador Perez and Shohei Ohtani have been hot in June, making them viable fantasy options.

Rookies to Watch

SP Casey Mize and C Eric Haase are two rookies to keep an eye on when the Tigers meet the Angels. Cubs 3B Patrick Wisdom has been solid in June, making him another rookie to look at.
