Baltimore Orioles DH Pedro Alvarez is not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore Saturday, July 16. OF Mark Trumbo will bat cleanup and serve as the designated hitter, with OF Nolan Reimold hitting eighth and playing left field and OF Joey Rickard hitting ninth and playing right field.
Fantasy Tip: Trumbo is batting .359 with five home runs and eight RBI in 39 at-bats this month and is a must-start option in all fantasy formats. Reimold is 4-for-13 with two doubles and two RBI in his career against Moore, while Rickard is batting .294 during the month of July. Both outfielders are worth considering as value plays in daily fantasy contests today.

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters and DH Pedro Alvarez are not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Nick Tropeano Saturday, July 9. OF Joey Rickard will bat eighth and play right field, with C Caleb Joseph starting behind the plate and batting ninth. OF Mark Trumbo will serve as the designated hitter.
Fantasy Tip: Rickard is 4-for-9 with a double and two RBI at the plate this month and is worth considering as a productive source of cap relief in DFS Saturday. On the other hand, Joseph is hitting just .164 with zero RBI through 73 at-bats and is not a recommended fantasy option.
