Pirates | Gregory Polanco feeling better

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 16:24:34 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco (groin) took batting practice Tuesday, April 28, prior to the game against the Chicago Cubs. Polanco said he is fine and is feeling better. OF Sean Rodriguez is starting in right field and batting eighth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) could be worth a look in GPP tournaments on FantasyScore as he is hitting .353 through 18 plate appearances, with one home run and a stolen base. Rodriguez is a career .227 hitter so regression is on the way, but anyone looking in the range of $200 above the minimum price, will be hard pressed to do better.

Pirates | Gregory Polanco out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 13:27:37 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco is not in the lineup Tuesday, April 21, against the Chicago Cubs. OF Sean Rodriguez is batting instead.

Fantasy Tip: Polanco ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is likely out of the lineup due to a left-handed pitcher. Rodriguez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has a small sample size. In his last six at-bats Rodriguez has three hits, so he might be worth the gamble if you want to spend your money on other positions.

Pirates | Sean Rodriguez starting at the keystone

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 12:58:08 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Sean Rodriguez is starting at second base and batting eighth against the Milwaukee Brewers Friday, April 17.

Fantasy Tip: While his cap hit is a contest low, Rodriguez hardly moves the needle against right-handed pitchers. He has a .226/.297/.349 slash line against righties for his career, and FantasyScore players should aim higher Friday.

Pirates | No injury for Sean Rodriguez

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 22:54:48 -0800

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Sean Rodriguez (rest) did not play Friday, March 6, but manager Clint Hurdle said he is fine. Rodriguez was rested because of heavy activity Thursday, March 5.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez is likely to make the club as the backup second baseman, and he can play a handful of other positions as well. He is only worth the attention of owners in NL-only fantasy leagues.

Pirates | Jung-Ho Kang won't start in minors

Tue, 17 Feb 2015 15:16:51 -0800

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jung-Ho Kang, who hit .356 with 40 home runs in the Korean League last year, has "zero chance" of starting in the minors, according to general manager Neal Huntington. He'll be battling SSs Jordy Mercer and Sean Rodriguez for playing time, and Mercer has been serviceable and underrated defensively. Kang could, however, force Mercer into a utility role if he tears it up this spring.

Fantasy Tip: Kang's power is extremely intriguing at a position that lacks it. However, it'll be a mystery how that power translates to the major league level until games begin. If Kang has a good spring and cements a starting job, he'll definitely be worth a flier in the later rounds for his power hack.
