The Pittsburgh Pirates have placed OF Starling Marte (hand) on the 15-day disabled list with a right hand contusion. In a corresponding move, the team recalled OF Andrew Lambo from Triple-A Indianapolis.
Fantasy Tip: Lambo, Garrett Jones and Josh Harrison could see time in the outfield while Marte is out of the lineup, but none are expected to receive a majority of the playing time. Lambo could be a target in deep mixed leagues and NL-only leagues because of his power potential. Harrison could be an option in NL-only leagues if he gets enough playing time.

Fantasy Tip: Luke Scott or James Loney, likelier the former, would be a big loser in the first scenario. In the second, Garrett Jones or Jose Tabata, or both. In the third, Lyle Overbay.
