Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Aaron Hill is not in the starting lineup against the St. Louis Cardinals Wednesday, May 27. SS Cliff Pennington is starting at second base and batting sixth Wednesday.
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Hill ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. He is mired in a 2-for-22 funk with a single run and RBI over his past nine games, so his seasonal value is currently fading. Pennington ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is batting .186 over 43 at-bats this season, and he should be viewed as a desperation source of cap relief in FantasyScore contests Wednesday.

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Yasmany Tomas (illness) has been scratched from the starting lineup Friday, May 15, because of an illness. INF Cliff Pennington will be the starting third baseman for Arizona.
Fantasy Tip: Owners may want to watch for any updates on Tomas ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) to see if he will miss more time. Pennington ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has struggled in his limited playing time this season and should not be a starting option for owners on FantasyScore.
