Orioles | Caleb Joseph activated

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 09:28:06 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Caleb Joseph (testicle) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Thursday, June 30. C Francisco Pena was sent to the minors in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Joseph will return to being the primary backup to Matt Wieters behind the plate. Joseph has occasional pop but doesn't see enough playing time to warrant ownership in any fantasy leagues.

Orioles | Matt Wieters, Hyun-Soo Kim resting

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 10:48:01 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters and OF Hyun-Soo Kim are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 29. C Francisco Pena is behind the dish and is hitting seventh, while OF Joey Rickard starts in left field and is batting eighth against San Diego Padres SP Christian Friedrich.

Fantasy Tip: With a lefty on the hill, Wieters and Kim are both given a day off. Pena is hitting only .214 in limited time this year and should be avoided everywhere. Rickard has faded considerably after a strong spring, and he doesn't possess much thump with the lumber. He's a low-end DFS pick today.

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters is not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Sunday, June 26. C Francisco Pena will start behind the plate and bat ninth.

Orioles | No Matt Wieters vs. Jay Birds

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 12:49:31 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 17. C Francisco Pena is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Wieters is having a mediocre season and checks out as a viable starter in the majority of leagues with six home runs, 28 RBI and a .256/.309/.415 slash line to date. He does have a .278/.319/.472 line since Sunday, May 1, too. Pena is a potential low-priced flier in daily contests Friday, but he doesn't receive enough starts to move the needle in seasonal formats.

Orioles | Baltimore sitting four starters

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 09:01:03 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Hyun-soo Kim, C Matt Wieters, 3B Pedro Alvarez and 2B Ryan Flaherty are not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ Saturday, June 11. OF Mark Trumbo will serve as the designated hitter, while OF Joey Rickard will start in right field and is batting second. OF Nolan Reimold will start in left field and is batting seventh. C Francisco Pena will start at catcher and is batting eighth, while SS Paul Janish will start at third base and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Rickard and Reimold have posted solid numbers against left-handed pitchers this season and can be decent options in daily fantasy leagues against Happ. Pena has gone 5-for-11 with one home run and two RBI since joining the Orioles and should also have some value in daily leagues. Janish has struggled at the plate this season and should be avoided.

Orioles | Matt Wieters not starting Tuesday

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 12:22:40 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters is not starting Tuesday, June 7, against the Kansas City Royals. C Francisco Pena will start and bat eighth against Royals SP Yordano Ventura.

Fantasy Tip: With the injury to Caleb Joseph, the team still wants to get Wieters ample chances to rest, so this is strictly an off night. Pena has done a fine job hitting the ball in his limited action, with four hits in seven at-bats. Pena should not be activated in regular leagues, but he may be worth a daily pickup.
