Pirates | Pedro Alvarez sitting vs. southpaw

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 14:41:34 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Pedro Alvarez is not in the lineup against Miami Marlins left-handed SP Chris Narveson Wednesday, Aug. 26. 1B Michael Morse is starting at first base and is hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Stacking Pittsburgh hitters tonight is a good idea on FantasyScore tonight against Narveson. That could even ring true for Morse ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) as a deep sleeper despite a disappointing year.

Pirates | Pedro Alvarez resting vs. lefty

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 11:46:58 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Pedro Alvarez is not in the lineup against Miami Marlins left-handed SP Brad Hand Tuesday, Aug. 25. 1B Michael Morse is starting at first base and hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Stacking Pirates hitters against Hand isn't a bad strategy today on FantasyScore. However, Morse, who has really struggled all year at the plate, will still be a deep sleeper pick. He's hitting .171 (6-for-35) with none of his four home runs against lefties this year.

Pirates | Pedro Alvarez out vs. Giants

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 13:49:14 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Pedro Alvarez is not in the lineup against San Francisco Giants left-handed SP Madison Bumgarner Friday, Aug. 21. 1B Michael Morse is starting at first base and hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Morse ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) just hasn't been able to get anything going at the plate this year in limited duty, and a matchup against Giants ace Bumgarner tonight shouldn't suddenly make you want to use him in your daily lineups.

Pirates | Pedro Alvarez out vs. Arizona

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 13:36:58 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Pedro Alvarez is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 19. 1B Michael Morse is starting at first base and batting seventh against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is heating up at the dish with four home runs, a .457 batting average and a 1.314 OPS over the past two weeks. He is worth a look in most seasonal leagues and is currently a great bargain at FantasyScore. Morse ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is 4-for-30 against lefties this season and has just 17 plate appearances since joining the Pirates. The juice likely isn't worth the squeeze in daily contests.

Pirates | Pedro Alvarez sits against lefty

Sat, 15 Aug 2015 15:18:37 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Pedro Alvarez is out of the lineup Saturday, Aug. 15, against New York Mets SP Jon Niese. 1B Michael Morse is hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Morse ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is 4-for-22 (.182) lifetime against Niese. He's probably a pass on FantasyScore tonight.

Pirates | Pedro Alvarez not starting Sunday

Sun, 09 Aug 2015 14:14:58 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Pedro Alvarez is not starting Sunday, Aug. 9, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. 1B Michael Morse is in Alvarez's place.

Fantasy Tip: With a .167 batting average in August and a .133 mark in the past week, it should come as no surprise that Alvarez ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is on the bench for the nationally televised game. The fact the Dodgers are throwing Alex Wood, a lefty, is also a major reason.

Pirates | Pedro Alvarez sitting vs. lefty

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 11:49:11 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Pedro Alvarez is not in the lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers left-handed SP Clayton Kershaw Friday, Aug. 7. 1B Michael Morse is starting at first base and hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Morse ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is having a rough season and is facing last year's Cy Young Award winner in Kershaw. Doesn't sound like a recipe for success.

Pirates | Pedro Alvarez out of the lineup

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 11:52:56 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Pedro Alvarez is not in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester Monday, Aug. 3. 1B Michael Morse will start at first base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) probably is sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Morse ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is hitting only .213 this season and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Pirates | Pittsburgh adds Michael Morse

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 13:16:18 -0700

The Pittsburgh Pirates acquired 1B Michael Morse from the Los Angeles Dodgers along with cash considerations in exchange for OF Jose Tabata Friday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: Morse ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) projects to handle the right-handed hitting side of a first base platoon with Pedro Alvarez ($4,200, 8.4% of cap). Morse is a low-end FantasyScore option in his current form, but he has potential. Sean Rodriguez ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) won't receive many starts at first going forward.

Dodgers | Michael Morse, Brandon Beachy DFA'd

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 16:31:42 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brandon Beachy and 1B Michael Morse were designated for assignment Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Morse ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) managed just a .214 batting average in 173 plate appearances for the Miami Marlins this season. He is still just 33, and he should receive another major-league opportunity, but he likely won't have any fantasy value again this season.
