Pirates | PIT reshuffles lineup Saturday

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 14:11:08 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B/3B David Freese is not in the lineup against Washington Nationals RH Tanner Roark on Saturday, July 16. 1B John Jaso is playing first and batting leadoff, OF Starling Marte moves from the cleanup spot in the team's previous game to second and occupy left field. 3B Jung Ho Kang is hitting fourth and will replace Freese at third, INF/OF Sean Rodriguez is batting fifth and will be stationed in right field while 2B Josh Harrison will slide down from first to sixth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Of the Pirates' top six hitters from Friday's 5-1 loss, only Andrew McCutchen will retain his spot in the order (third). Marte and McCutchen each have a home run in limited at-bats against Roark and are the best plays from Pittsburgh's lineup in daily or traditional formats today.

Pirates | Gregory Polanco, Josh Harrison out

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 09:07:59 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez is hitting .250 with three home runs and five RBI over the last seven days. He could be a sleeper option for owners in daily fantasy leagues. Frazier is hitting .350 in limited playing time this season, but owners should be able to find better players to use.

Pirates | Jung Ho Kang, Jordy Mercer resting

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 11:47:15 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Jung Ho Kang and SS Jordy Mercer are not in the starting lineup Friday, July 8. 3B David Freese is starting at third base and hitting cleanup, while 1B Sean Rodriguez is at the 6 and is batting seventh against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta.

Fantasy Tip: On top of a potential suspension depending on sexual assault allegations, Kang has been slumping lately, so go with other options if you have them. Freese, on the other hand, is gaining steam and has hits in all six games this month, going 8-for-20 (.400) with two home runs and five RBI. He's become relevant in deep mixed leagues with more consistent playing time. S-Rod doesn't play enough to be relevant in mixed leagues, and he's a risky DFS pick against Arrieta.

Pirates | John Jaso, Gregory Polanco out

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 14:29:39 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Freese has continued his terrific play and is hitting .409 with two home runs and five RBI in the last seven days. He should be an attractive option for owners in daily fantasy leagues. Rodriguez has gone hitless in his five games this month and can be avoided by owners.

Pirates | Two Bucs out of the lineup

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 07:56:35 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Freese is having a solid .290-6-30 season, and he's a low-end option against Scott Kazmir. Mercer hits .315 off of lefties and is worth consideration in DFS as well. Rodriguez has struggled this month and isn't worth using today.

Pirates | Three Pirates regulars out

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 14:35:03 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte (face), OF Gregory Polanco and 1B John Jaso are out of the lineup Saturday, June 18. 1B David Freese is hitting fifth, OF Matt Joyce hits sixth and OF Sean Rodriguez hits seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Freese is hitting .349 against lefties this year, and he's a decent flyer against Jon Lester. Joyce hits left-handed, but he hits lefties to a .313 clip. He's a decent low-end grab, too. Rodriguez's production has hit a freefall, but he hits .289 against lefties. He's an iffy low-end flyer.
