Orioles | Matt Wieters sitting vs. Texas

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 12:41:02 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 29. C Caleb Joseph is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against Texas Rangers SP Wandy Rodriguez Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Wieters ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) can be avoided in all formats Monday. He has nine runs, three home runs, 10 RBI and a .288/.316/.596 slash line over 16 games since returning from injury, and he projects to be a near-elite catcher in all fantasy formats going forward. Joseph ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has just one multi-hit game over his past 20 starts, and FantasyScore players should likely aim higher Monday.

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 12:47:52 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 24. C Caleb Joseph is starting and hitting eighth against Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz.

Fantasy Tip: You could do much worse than Joseph ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) as your FantasyScore catching option today as a way to save salary cap space for your roster. However, he's not a recommended option. Since Wieters has returned in June, Joseph is hitting .188 (6-for-32) with a home run and three RBI.
