Diamondbacks | Chris Owings sitting down vs. Brewers

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 14:23:57 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Chris Owings is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 23. SS Cliff Pennington is playing second base and batting second against Milwaukee Brewers SP Mike Fiers Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Pennington ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) started Wednesday, July 22, at shortstop for Nick Ahmed ($3,400, 6.8% of cap), and Pennington went 0-for-3 with a walk. For the season, Pennington boasts a .236/.317/.282 slash line, so FantasyScore players should likely look elsewhere for cap relief Thursday.

Diamondbacks | Nick Ahmed sitting vs. Marlins

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 15:53:37 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 22. SS Cliff Pennington is playing shortstop and batting eighth against Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Ahmed ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. Pennington ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief by FantasyScore players, especially facing Fernandez ($8,800, 17.6% of cap)

Pirates | PIT interested in Cliff Pennington

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 12:50:07 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Cliff Pennington is attracting interest from the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Fantasy Tip: Pennington ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting .245 and has little power, so his skills may not translate well to PNC Park and its short porches. His versatility comes in playing second base, shortstop and third base.

Diamondbacks | Nick Ahmed will not start

Sat, 11 Jul 2015 09:18:30 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed is not in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Matt Harvey Saturday, July 11. SS Cliff Pennington will start at shortstop and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Ahmed ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) probably will return to the lineup in the near future. Pennington ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) does have six hits and four RBI in his last eight games but is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Diamondbacks | Chris Owings sitting out

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 14:55:04 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Chris Owings is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 8. SS Cliff Pennington is starting at second base and hitting ninth against Texas Rangers SP Matt Harrison.

Fantasy Tip: Pennington ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a weak-hitting infielder for Arizona, and he doesn't deserve much attention on FantasyScore unless you need the salary cap relief.

Diamondbacks | Nick Ahmed sitting vs. Rockies

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 15:38:03 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 3. SS Cliff Pennington is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against Colorado Rockies SP Kyle Kendrick Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Pennington ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) draws a plus-matchup against Kendrick. Pennington still should be viewed as a desperation source of cap relief, though. After all, he has a .216/.314/.239 slash line.

Diamondbacks | A.J. Pollock not in lineup Sunday

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 13:02:22 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF A.J. Pollock is not in the starting lineup Sunday, June 28, against the San Diego Padres. OF Cliff Pennington is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Pollock ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) appears to be getting a normal day off, so just plan accordingly. Pennington ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting .429 (3-for-7) in the last week and makes a decent FantasyScore alternative.

Nationals | Washington interested in infielders

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 13:24:59 -0700

The Washington Nationals are interested in the Arizona Diamondbacks' middle infield depth, which includes SSs Chris Owings and Cliff Pennington and 2Bs Aaron Hill and Nick Ahmed, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: None of these players carry a ton of fantasy value to begin with, but a move to a better lineup with the Nats could boost their value at least a little bit if they fall into consistent playing time. That's unlikely to happen in D.C., though, as they'd likely be in more of a utility role.

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 12:30:22 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Cliff Pennington is batting eighth against the San Francisco Giants Sunday, June 14. SS Nick Ahmed is getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Pennington ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is only batting .164 this season and is not worthy of FantasyScore consideration.
