Pirates | Sean Rodriguez in the lineup vs. Texas

Fri, 27 May 2016 13:45:49 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Sean Rodriguez is starting at first base and batting ninth against Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels Friday, May 27. 1B John Jaso is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez owns a respectable .752 OPS against left-handed pitchers dating back to the beginning of last season, which makes him a potential against-the-grain flier in daily contests Friday. Just keep your expectations in check. In seasonal leagues, he is a low-end option in cavernous mixed and NL-only setups.

Pirates | Two Pirates sitting Thursday

Thu, 26 May 2016 07:41:23 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B John Jaso and 2B Josh Harrison are out of the lineup Thursday, May 26, with 1B David Freese hitting third and 2B Sean Rodriguez hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Freese homered yesterday and is hitting .350 against lefties this year. He's a solid option against Patrick Corbin. Rodriguez is hitting just .258 this month after a fast start. He hits lefties much better than righties, though, and he's a low-end option.

Pirates | Josh Harrison scratched with illness

Wed, 25 May 2016 14:56:36 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Josh Harrison (illness) was scratched from the starting lineup with an illness Wednesday, May 25. 1B Sean Rodriguez is replacing Harrison at second base and is batting sixth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa.

Fantasy Tip: S-Rod isn't a bad replacement, as he's hitting .298 with four home runs and 14 RBI. De La Rosa has improved this season but isn't exactly a daunting matchup, making Rodriguez worth a look as a midrange flier in daily contests.

Pirates | Jordy Mercer takes a seat

Mon, 23 May 2016 07:37:28 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jordy Mercer is out of the lineup Monday, May 23, with SS Sean Rodriguez hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez has cooled a bit, but he's hitting .429 with a couple homers in 21 home at-bats this season. He's a low-end option against Jordan Lyles.

Pirates | Andrew McCutchen returns to lineup

Sun, 22 May 2016 08:53:00 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Andrew McCutchen is back in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis Sunday, May 22, batting second. In addition, INF David Freese will bat fifth and play third base, while INF Sean Rodriguez will play shortstop and bat eighth. 3B Jung Ho Kang (hand) and SS Jordy Mercer are receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Freese is 4-for-12 at the plate over the past week and is batting .349 at home this season, so he should be viewed as a potential value play at the hot corner in daily fantasy contests. Rodriguez is another source of productive cap relief, with four homers and 14 RBI in just 54 at-bats.

Pirates | John Jaso, Gregory Polanco out

Sun, 15 May 2016 10:59:43 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B John Jaso and OF Gregory Polanco are not in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester Sunday, May 15. 3B David Freese will start at first base and is batting third, while 2B Sean Rodriguez will start in right field and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Freese has played well during the first six weeks of the season and should be used in most leagues. Rodriguez is hitting .400 against left-handed pitchers this seasons and could be a sleeper option in daily fantasy leagues.

Pirates | John Jaso, Josh Harrison out again

Wed, 11 May 2016 11:12:59 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B John Jaso and 2B Josh Harrison are out of the lineup again Wednesday, May 11, after the game the previous day was postponed. 3B David Freese is leading off, and 2B Sean Rodriguez is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Freese has a .282-1-10 line with a decent matchup against Alfredo Simon. It's questionable how well Freese translates to the leadoff spot, but Andrew McCutchen is behind him. He should see plenty of fastballs when the order turns over. Rodriguez still has a ridiculous .341-4-14 line, and both are worthy considerations today.

Pirates | John Jaso, Josh Harrison sitting

Tue, 10 May 2016 11:30:57 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B John Jaso and 2B Josh Harrison are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 10. 3B David Freese is starting at first base and hitting leadoff, while 1B Sean Rodriguez is at the keystone and is batting seventh against Cincinnati Reds SP Alfredo Simon.

Fantasy Tip: Leadoff is an odd spot for Freese, but the positioning atop the order gives him mild intrigue as a daily sleeper against the hittable Simon tonight. Rodriguez has four homers, 14 RBI and a .341 average in just 44 at-bats this year and also profiles as a sleeper to target in DFS action tonight.

Pirates | John Jaso takes a seat

Wed, 04 May 2016 06:59:38 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B John Jaso is out of the lineup Wednesday, May 4, with SS Jordy Mercer leading off. INF Sean Rodriguez is hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Mercer is hitting .319 with 13 RBI thus far, and he's worth midrange consideration against Jon Lester. Rodriguez has a .342-4-14 line on the season and is worth lower-middle DFS consideration.

Pirates | Starling Marte, Josh Harrison out

Tue, 03 May 2016 11:50:39 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte and 2B Josh Harrison are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 3. OF Matt Joyce is starting in right field and hitting cleanup, while 1B Sean Rodriguez is at the keystone and is batting seventh against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta.

Fantasy Tip: Joyce and Rodriguez have been very productive as role players for the Bucs to start the year, but their daily fantasy stock is down tonight while facing the almighty Arrieta.
