Orioles | Steve Pearce starting at first

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 13:48:55 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 2B Steve Pearce is starting at first base and hitting eighth in the order Saturday, June 13. 1B Chris Davis will serve as the designated hitter against LHP CC Sabathia.

Fantasy Tip: Pearce ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is slowly rebounding from a horrendous start to the season, going 5-for-14 in his last four games. Although Pearce is hitting just .231 against lefties, he can be used in GPP contests as he goes up against the struggling Sabathia.

Orioles | Jimmy Paredes riding pine

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 12:36:57 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Jimmy Paredes is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 11. 1B Chris Davis is serving as the designated hitter and batting sixth against Boston Red Sox SP Wade Miley.

Fantasy Tip: Paredes has cooled off considerably, hitting .098 (4-for-41) with 20 strikeouts since May 28. He's seeing less playing time lately as a result. Davis ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) does have three of his 12 homers off lefties this year, but he's a weaker pick today in daily games. Miley has limited lefty sticks to a .217/.277/.300 line and hasn't allowed a single home run, Davis' bread and butter, in 2015.

Orioles | Jimmy Paredes not playing Tuesday

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 13:09:11 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Jimmy Paredes is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 9. 1B Chris Davis is serving as the designated hitter, while OF Steve Pearce receives the start at first base.

Fantasy Tip: Both Davis ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) and Pearce ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) shouldn't excite daily gamers all that much against Boston Red Sox starter Eduardo Rodriguez, who has been lights out so far in his MLB career. Rodriguez has been especially tough on lefties (.167/.167/.250), too.

Orioles | No Jimmy Paredes Thursday

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 10:24:14 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Jimmy Paredes is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 4. 1B Chris Davis is serving as the designated hitter against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel, while OF Steve Pearce receives the start at first base.

Fantasy Tip: Paredes is in the midst of a 2-for-18 (.111) slump as he starts to see regression to the mean take its effect. Davis ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is hitting .302 (13-for-43) with three of his 12 home runs off lefties, but he's a weak play today against Keuchel, who induces ground balls over 60% of the time.

Orioles | Chris Davis on a tear

Fri, 29 May 2015 20:33:22 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 1B Chris Davis went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in a 2-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays Friday, May 29, and he has four home runs in his last four games.

Fantasy Tip: During the stretch, Davis ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has seven RBIs and has scored five runs. He is a streaky, all-or-nothing hitter, but you might want to try to ride his hot streak for another game or two at FantasyScore.

Orioles | Chris Davis homers again

Thu, 28 May 2015 15:10:47 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 1B Chris Davis homered for the third time in two games, Thursday, May 28. Davis hit a two-run home run in the ninth inning of Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) went 2-for-5 in the game with a walk, a double, a home run, two runs scored, three RBI and zero strikeouts. Davis is up to 11 homers on the season, and his upside has returned on FantasyScore. Season-long owners willing to accept a drastic hit to their batting average should target Davis in trades.

Orioles | Chris Davis homers twice

Wed, 27 May 2015 17:53:33 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 1B Chris Davis hit two home runs Wednesday, May 27, against the Houston Astros.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) ended a 13-game homer-less drought, and he had hit just three doubles in that stretch. Davis continues to strikeout at a high rate, and he's a boom or bust FantasyScore option. Owners should be staying away, as the booms have been few and far between.

Orioles | Chris Davis sitting out

Mon, 25 May 2015 08:26:40 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 1B Chris Davis is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 25. INF Steve Pearce will start at first base.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is not in the lineup for the first time since opening day. Pearce ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has only five hits in his last nine games and is batting .188 for the season. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options to use.

Orioles | Chris Davis piling up strikeouts

Thu, 07 May 2015 21:02:56 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 1B Chris Davis struck out in all four plate appearances in a 4-3 loss to the New York Yankees Thursday, May 7, and he has struck out a combined 17 times in his last seven games.

Fantasy Tip: Despite all the strikeouts, Davis ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) does have two home runs and five RBIs during the same seven-game stretch. Even at his best, Davis tends to strikeout a lot, but his power potential keeps him relevant at FantasyScore. He is a gamble, but he is a gamble with plenty of upside.

Orioles | Chris Davis hits against Boston

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 00:49:50 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 1B Chris Davis completed the Boston Red Sox series Sunday, April 26, having gone 5-for-11 with two home runs, a double, a walk and six runs batted in.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) had been off to a slow start, so this might help him regain some confidence. As long as his salary is lower, it is worth paying to put him in the lineup.
