Twins | Brian Dozier out again

Tue, 24 May 2016 14:52:58 -0700

Minnesota Twins 2B Brian Dozier is not in the starting lineup for the second straight game Tuesday, May 24. SS Eduardo Nunez is starting at second base again and batting leadoff against Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez.

Fantasy Tip: Dozier has shown no signs of life for the first two months other than four home runs and 14 RBI. His slash line of .199/.284/.318 has earned him a seat on the bench the last two nights in favor of the productive Nunez. It's not out of the question to dump Dozier in shallow leagues, but you'll need to keep him benched for other options everywhere else until he can figure something out. Nunez, meanwhile, continues to hit and can provide decent stolen bases numbers for those searching for depth in deep mixed and AL-only leagues.

Twins | Brian Dozier receives a breather

Mon, 23 May 2016 13:36:14 -0700

Minnesota Twins 2B Brian Dozier is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 23. SS Eduardo Nunez is starting at second base and is hitting leadoff against Kansas City Royals SP Ian Kennedy.

Fantasy Tip: Dozier (.199-4-14) could certainly use a break to clear his head. He's hitting .211 with nine strikeouts this month and hasn't homered since May 4. If you have better options at second base, you should consider benching him in mixed leagues until he shows life. Nunez continues to hit and is now batting .320 with eight stolen bases in 34 games. He'll lose some playing time with Eduardo Escobar back from the DL, but Nunez remains attractive in deep mixed and AL-only leagues for his high average and speed.

Twins | Eduardo Nunez clubs third home run

Sat, 21 May 2016 14:09:29 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Eduardo Nunez finished 2-for-4, including a three-run homer in the bottom of the eighth inning on Saturday, May 21, in a 5-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: If only Brian Dozier wasn't hitting .204, Minnesota might be fielding a much better offense right now. Not much has gone right for the 11-win Twins, but Nunez is batting .331 and roughly on pace to produce 12 homers, 68 RBI and 32 steals at a weak fantasy position. Until Nunez starts showing signs of slowing down, he needs to be in fantasy lineups just about every day.

Twins | Eduardo Nunez takes a seat

Tue, 17 May 2016 12:16:18 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Eduardo Nunez is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 17. 3B Jorge Polanco is starting at the 6 and is hitting second against Detroit Tigers SP Mike Pelfrey.

Fantasy Tip: Polanco has a combined 42 plate appearances in the big leagues to date and has one home run and eight RBI to speak for it. He's a true deep sleeper as a desperation play to save salary cap space in daily games despite the cushy lineup spot.

Twins | Eduardo Escobar taking a breather

Wed, 04 May 2016 14:58:51 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Eduardo Escobar is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 4. INF Eduardo Nunez is taking his place at shortstop and is hitting ninth against Houston Astros SP Mike Fiers.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar could split more time at the 6 now with Nunez now that Trevor Plouffe is off the DL. Nunez has a cool .371/.420/.484 slash line with a homer and 10 RBI in 62 at-bats to begin the year. He won't hit this well all year but is a consideration for infield depth in AL-only leagues as long as he sees regular playing time. Nunez's daily ceiling is low hitting ninth.

Twins | Oswaldo Arcia, Kurt Suzuki playing

Sun, 01 May 2016 07:52:55 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Oswaldo Arcia and C Kurt Suzuki are back in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Mike Pelfrey Sunday, May 1. 3B/OF Miguel Sano will play third base and INF Eduardo Nunez is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki is batting .346 with two doubles and three RBI over the past two weeks, so he should be viewed as an inexpensive flier option for daily fantasy leagues. Arcia has batted just .200 over the same stretch and is hitting just .227 versus righties this season, making him a risky play in all formats.

Twins | Eduardo Nunez out Tuesday

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 14:09:59 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Eduardo Nunez is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 26, against the Cleveland Indians. OF Miguel Sano is playing third base and batting fourth against Indians SP Cody Anderson.

Fantasy Tip: Nunez is a player with borderline fantasy value, even though he has hit leadoff. Sano carries plenty of value in the fourth spot (.323-3-6 in the last week) so put him in your lineup and reap the benefits.

Twins | Eduardo Nunez bangs out four hits

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 17:31:07 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Eduardo Nunez went 3-for-4 with two runs scored and an RBI in a 6-5 loss to the Washington Nationals Sunday, April 24.

Fantasy Tip: Nunez continues to destroy right-handed pitching, and while he will likely lose playing time when Trevor Plouffe returns, he makes a decent short-term option in AL-only and deeper mixed leagues.

Twins | Eduardo Nunez, Byron Buxton playing

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 08:36:26 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Eduardo Nunez and OF Byron Buxton are back in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg Sunday, April 24, batting first and eight, respectively. 3B/OF Miguel Sano will move back to right field after playing the hot corner Saturday and OF Oswaldo Arcia will get the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Nunez is batting .405 with seven RBI through his first 37 at-bats this year, including a .455 mark versus right-handed pitching, making him a solid value play in daily fantasy games. On the other hand, Buxton is just 6-for-40 at the plate and should be avoided today.

Twins | Eduardo Nunez out of the lineup

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 08:39:25 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Eduardo Nunez is not in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Tanner Roark Saturday, April 23. OF Miguel Sano will start at third base, while OF Oswaldo Arcia will start in right field and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Arcia is batting .400 with two home runs and five RBI over the last seven days and should be an attractive starting candidate in daily fantasy leagues.
