Cardinals | Jeremy Hazelbaker promoted

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 13:56:02 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jeremy Hazelbaker was promoted from Class AAA Memphis on Tuesday, July 19. In other roster moves, RP Miguel Socolovich was also promoted to the parent club, and C Michael McKenry was designated for assignment.

Fantasy Tip: Of these three, the one with the most value is Hazelbaker, and his fantasy value has gone way down from what it was at the start of the year. Hazelbaker hit .250-7-19 before being sent to Memphis, and it is not clear how much playing time the Cards will give him with Kolten Wong, Stephen Piscotty, Matt Holliday and others already ticketed for outfield duty.

Rangers | Chris Gimenez nursing ankle injury

Tue, 29 Mar 2016 12:08:52 -0700

Texas Rangers C Chris Gimenez (ankle) has an infection in his left ankle and might not be ready to play by opening day. He is resuming baseball activities Tuesday, March 29, though. If Gimenez is not ready to start the season, Cs Bobby Wilson or Michael McKenry will back up starting C Robinson Chirinos.

Fantasy Tip: Gimenez is nothing more than a low-end backstop in cavernous mixed, AL-only and two-catcher formats, so the potential of missing a few games to start the season doesn't have a significant fantasy impact. Wilson or McKenry would have fleeting value in those deeper leagues, if they break camp as the backup catcher.

Rockies | Michael McKenry draws into the lineup

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 13:49:08 -0700

Colorado Rockies C Michael McKenry is starting behind the plate and batting seventh against New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom Wednesday, Aug. 12. C Nick Hundley is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Typically, McKenry ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is worth a look at FantasyScore, but facing deGrom ($9,500, 19.0% of cap) stands as a daunting matchup. Make sure to avoid Hundley ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday, too.

Rockies | Nick Hundley on the bench

Sun, 09 Aug 2015 08:09:11 -0700

Colorado Rockies C Nick Hundley is not in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer Sunday, Aug. 9. C Michael McKenry will start at catcher and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Hundley ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the near future. McKenry ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is hitting only .212 this season and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Rockies | Nick Hundley sitting out Wednesday

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 09:05:03 -0700

Colorado Rockies C Nick Hundley is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 5. C Michael McKenry is starting and is hitting eighth against Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker.

Fantasy Tip: For a hitter with a .212/.328/.398 slash line with only three home runs and 12 RBI, his FantasyScore salary ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is rather high. Walker has had his share of ups and downs and could struggle at hitter-friendly Coors Field, but McKenry isn't your best catching option if you're looking to save money.

Rockies | Nick Hundley out of lineup

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 14:45:09 -0700

Colorado Rockies C Nick Hundley isn't starting Saturday, Aug. 1, against the St. Louis Cardinals. C Michael McKenry will start at catcher and hit sixth in the lineup against RHP Lance Lynn.

Fantasy Tip: McKenry ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) doesn't have a multi-hit game or an extra-base hit since June 27, and he doesn't need to be considered for FantasyScore purposes.

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 22:46:09 -0700

Colorado Rockies C Michael McKenry (knee) returned to the lineup Monday, July 27, against the Chicago Cubs after being sidelined for a few days due to a sore right knee.

Fantasy Tip: McKenry ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) had a hit in four at-bats with one run scored. When he starts he is a decent low-end FantasyScore option with a little power potential.

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 14:27:19 -0700

Fantasy Tip: McKenry ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is a weaker catching option on FantasyScore. He has only three home runs and 12 RBI while hitting just .212 (22-for-104) in a backup role this year.
