Padres | Wil Myers back after a day off

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 12:27:39 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Wil Myers is in the starting lineup batting second against Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer on Saturday, July 23. OF Travis Jankowski is also back after a rest day and will hit leadoff. However, C Derek Norris will sit in favor of C Christian Bethancourt, who will fill in behind the plate and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Myers sat out Friday after getting hit by a pitch for the first time all season Thursday, but the absence was not believed to be injury-related and this proves it. A bigger concern for fantasy owners is his 2-for-22 slump - something that doesn't figure to get much better with Scherzer on the mound, although he is 4-for-6 lifetime against the right-hander. Myers has been too good this season to bench, so non-DFS owners should keep starting him in hopes he can get back on track soon.

Nationals | Max Scherzer looks to pass Bucs

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 21:01:02 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer will make his first start since the All-Star Game when he pitches Sunday, July 17, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. He threw a no-hitter against the Pirates June 20, 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Scherzer has managed three straight quality starts, and he has allowed three or fewer runs while lasting at least six innings in seven of his past eight outings. After a rough start, especially by his standards, he has re-emerged as a must-start in all fantasy formats.

Mets | Yoenis Cespedes likely out through break

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 15:52:54 -0700

New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes (quad) is not in the lineup against Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer on Saturday, July 9. OF Alejandro De Aza will take his spot in center field and bat eighth. Cespedes has already been replaced by Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce on the NL All-Star roster, which suggests he won't play Sunday, June 10 either.

Fantasy Tip: Get him out of all fantasy lineups immediately. Cespedes told reporters he missed four to five days the last time he had a quad strain, so he is a good bet to be back in the heart of the Mets' order when they begin play next weekend, meaning he should be in all fantasy lineups at that time as well.

Nationals | Max Scherzer strikes out 11 in win

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 19:05:47 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Scherzer rebounded from a shaky outing against the St. Louis Cardinals to record his third double-digit strikeout game of 2016. His next start is scheduled for Wednesday, June 8, against the Chicago White Sox, and he should be viewed as a solid starting option in all formats.
