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.

Rays | Ben Zobrist to DL

Thu, 15 May 2014 15:15:13 -0700

The Tampa Bay Rays placed 2B Ben Zobrist (thumb) on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, May 15, and recalled INF Cole Figueroa from the minors in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Zobrist dislocated his thumb sliding headfirst into second base yesterday and will need several weeks to heal. Sean Rodriguez is the likely candidate to take over most of the playing time at the keystone in Zobrist's absence, with Logan Forsythe mixing in occasionally. Figueroa will serve as middle infield insurance. Grab Rodriguez in AL-only or cavernous mixed leagues if you need MI help.

Rays | Ben Zobrist could land on DL

Wed, 14 May 2014 16:44:37 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 2B Ben Zobrist (thumb) will be evaluated Thursday, May 15, when it will be determined if he'll need to go on the disabled list. He might need two weeks before his thumb is fully healed.

Fantasy Tip: There seems to be a pretty good chance that Zobrist will land on the DL so that he'll have sufficient time to heal. Sean Rodriguez and Logan Forsythe will likely split duties at second base with Zobrist sidelined. Rodriguez should be your first target in deep mixed and AL-only leagues if you're looking for middle infield help.
