Indians | Cleveland looking at Eduardo Nunez

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 16:26:31 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Eduardo Nunez is a player the Cleveland Indians have considered pursuing leading up to the trade deadline.

Fantasy Tip: Nunez is hitting .298 with 12 home runs and 46 RBI this season and likely will be an option for several teams if available. It is not known where he would play if the Indians acquired him, but he would still be a solid fantasy option.

Twins | Three Twins starters on the bench

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 09:33:52 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Robbie Grossman, SS Eduardo Escobar and C Kurt Suzuki are not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello Sunday, July 24. SS Eduardo Nunez will start at shortstop, while 1B Kennys Vargas will serve as the designated hitter and is batting sixth. OF Eddie Rosario will start in left field and is batting seven, while C Juan Centeno will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Vargas is hitting .211 with one RBI over the last seven days and probably will not be the best starting candidate for most owners. Rosario should be a sleeper option in daily fantasy leagues because he is hitting .396 with two home runs and seven RBI in July. Centeno is hitting .245 this season and would only have value in two-catcher leagues.

Twins | Big game for Eduardo Nunez

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 23:50:33 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Eduardo Nunez went 2-for-6 with three RBIs and a stolen base Saturday, July 23, against the Boston Red Sox to push his average back up to .302.

Fantasy Tip: Nunez entered 0-for-11 over the past three games, so this game was necessary to quell the fears of Nunez's impatient fantasy owners.

Twins | Eduardo Nunez continues to rake

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 21:47:31 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Eduardo Nunez went 2-for-4 with a run scored, three RBIs and a stolen base Tuesday, July 19, against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Nunez has been a bright spot for the dismal Minnesota offense, posting a .312 average with 43 RBIs at the top of manager Paul Molitor's batting order. He has re-emerged as a must-start fantasy option in AL-only leagues, deeper mixed formats and as a strong mid-tier option in DFS.

Twins | Minnesota resting three players

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 09:51:24 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Joe Mauer, 3B Miguel Sano and CB Byron Buxton are not in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Josh Tomlin Sunday, July 17. SS Eduardo Nunez will start at third base, while OF Robbie Grossman will serve as the designated hitter. 1B Kennys Vargas will start at first base and is batting third. OF Eddie Rosario will start in left field and is batting sixth, while OF Danny Santana will start in center field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Vargas is hitting .400 with three home runs and four RBI since being recalled from the minor leagues and should be a decent option in daily fantasy leagues. Rosario has 12 hits in his last five games and should be used in starting lineups. Santana has at least one hit in five of his last seven games, but owners probably will be able to find better options.

Griffin Sunday, July 10. 1B Joe Mauer will serve as the designated hitter, while 1B Kennys Vargas will start at first base and is batting fourth. OF Eddie Rosario will start in center field and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Vargas is hitting .467 with two home runs and three RBI over the last seven days and should be an attractive option for owners in daily fantasy leagues. Rosario is has nine hits and three RBI over the last seven days and could be a decent option in daily leagues.

Twins | Eduardo Nunez finds the seats

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 22:58:55 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Eduardo Nunez launched a two-run home run in five at-bats Saturday, July 9, against the Texas Rangers.

Fantasy Tip: Nunez has managed 12 homers with 40 RBIs and a .321 average, re-emerging as a dependable middle infielder fantasy option in AL-only leagues, deeper mixed formats and DFS play.

Twins | Eduardo Nunez swipes 20th bag

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 15:52:43 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Eduardo Nunez went 1-for-4 with an RBI and his 20th stolen base of the season Wednesday, July 6, versus the Oakland Athletics. He's the first Twins player to steal 20 bases before the All-Star break since Houston Astros OF Carlos Gomez did it with the club back in 2008.

Fantasy Tip: There might be some criticism over Nunez making the All-Star team to represent Minnesota, but it's hard to say he hasn't earned his first career berth in the Midsummer Classic. After today's performance, Nunez is now hitting .316/.340/.478 with 11 home runs and 36 RBI. He's on pace for a rare 20/20 season, which makes him a valuable commodity in all formats.

Twins | Joe Mauer, Eduardo Escobar out

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 13:18:21 -0700

Minnesota Twins C Joe Mauer and SS Eduardo Escobar (hamstring) are not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Sean Manaea Tuesday, July 5. 1B Kennys Vargas will start at first base and is batting fifth. SS Eduardo Nunez will start at shortstop, while OF Robbie Grossman will serve as the designated hitter. OF Danny Santana will start in left field and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Vargas went hitless in his only other start of the season, so owners outside of AL-only leagues should avoid him. Santana is hitting only .188 over the last seven days and is not a strong fantasy option.

Twins | Eduardo Nunez continues All-Star Game bid

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 15:07:02 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Eduardo Nunez notched his fourth four-hit of the season versus the Texas Rangers on Saturday, July 02, and added two RBI to go along with three runs scored.

Fantasy Tip: For some perspective on the company Nunez is keeping at the moment, he, Jose Altuve and Francisco Lindor are the only infielders in the majors batting at least .300 with at least 10 homers and 10 steals. Nunez's 42 runs scored are a bit low compared to the other two, but he has obviously taken advantage of his first chance at a full-time gig. He's a must-start in all leagues.
