Rockies | Michael McKenry sits out

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 18:23:04 -0700

Colorado Rockies C Michael McKenry (knee) was held out of the starting lineup Wednesday, July 22, against the Texas Rangers due to fluid in his right knee. However, he was able to make a pinch-hitting appearance in the sixth inning, and manager Walt Weiss said he expects McKenry will be ready to start Friday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: McKenry ($2,600; or 5.2% of cap) is normally the receiver when Jorge De La Rosa is on the hill. He has a little bit of pop at a cut-rate price for FantasyScore players, but let him make it through a full game without any setbacks before trusting him again.
