From -- thru  --


Reds | Jay Bruce sitting out

Fri, 15 May 2015 11:28:40 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 15. OF Kris Negron will start in right field for the Reds.

Fantasy Tip: Bruce ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) only has four games in his last 10 games, so he is receiving a day off. Negron ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is only hitting .109 at the plate this season and should not be an option for owners on FantasyScore.

Reds | Zack Cozart scratched late

Mon, 11 May 2015 16:10:02 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart (undisclosed) was a late scratch against the Atlanta Braves Monday, May 11. OF Kris Negron is starting at shortstop and batting seventh Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Cozart from all fantasy lineups Monday. Also, check back for updates on the nature of his late removal from the lineup. Negron ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be viewed as nothing more than a low-priced flier for FantasyScore players, and while he is starting at shortstop Monday, he likely isn't the long-term answer, if Cozart were to miss any time.

Reds | Kris Negron starting at 1B

Sat, 09 May 2015 09:31:06 -0700

Cincinnati Reds INF Kris Negron will be the starting first baseman in Game 1 of the doubleheader against the Chicago White Sox Saturday, May 9.

Fantasy Tip: Negron ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is starting at first base since Joey Votto has to serve a one-game suspension. Negron has struggled at the plate this season and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Reds | Zack Cozart remains out

Thu, 07 May 2015 11:47:32 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart (wrist) remains out of the starting lineup Thursday, May 7. OF Kris Negron is starting at shortstop and hitting seventh in the batting order against Pittsburgh Pirates SP A.J. Burnett.

Fantasy Tip: Negron ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has only two hits in 30 at-bats this year as a bench player, and he should be avoided in all daily games against the wily vet Burnett, who is off to a great start in 2015 now that he's back with Pittsburgh.

Reds | Zack Cozart out again

Wed, 06 May 2015 11:18:28 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart (wrist) remains out of the lineup Wednesday, May 6. SS Kris Negron is starting at shortstop again and hitting seventh in the batting order against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole.

Fantasy Tip: Negron ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is going up against one of baseball's most dominant pitchers this year in Cole, so he should be avoided in all daily games.

Reds | Zack Cozart not in Tuesday lineup

Tue, 05 May 2015 12:42:57 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart (finger, wrist) is not in the lineup Tuesday, May 5, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. SS Kris Negron is in the lineup and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Cozart ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) from your lineup until he is 100 percent healthy. It may be just another game or two. Negron ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) may be a way to save a bit of money and spend it other places, and he might be a good low-cost alternative.

Reds | Billy Hamilton not in lineup vs. Cubs

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 12:41:23 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton is not in the starting lineup against the Chicago Cubs Monday, April 13. OF Kris Negron is batting first and playing center field Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Hamilton from your daily lineups Monday. There is no indication on whether his absence in the lineup is injury related, so it is worth checking back for updates. Negron ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be viewed as a low-priced flier for FantasyScore players Monday, as he has flashed some upside when called upon -- .273/.343/.473 slash line through 150 career at-bats.
