Orioles | J.J. Hardy departs with foot injury

Sun, 01 May 2016 13:01:32 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SS J.J. Hardy (foot) left the game on Sunday, May 1, against the Chicago White Sox after fouling a ball off his left foot. 3B Pedro Alvarez replaced him in the batting order, while 3B/SS Manny Machado slid over from third to play shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: The Orioles figure to make some kind of announcement about the seriousness of this injury in the next few hours. Baltimore doesn't lose much offensively as a result of the injury, although its defense takes a big hit. Hardy is a fringe fantasy option and shouldn't be out too long, however, so continue to use him as you normally would.

Orioles | Matt Wieters, Pedro Alvarez out

Sun, 01 May 2016 09:11:37 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters and 1B Pedro Alvarez are not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale Sunday, May 1. C Caleb Joseph will start at catcher and is batting ninth. OF Mark Trumbo will serve as the designated hitter, while OF Nolan Reimold will start in left field and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Joseph is hitting .226 with zero RBI this season and probably can be avoided by most owners. Reimold is 4-for-9 with one home run and three RBI over the last seven days and could be a sleeper option for owners in daily fantasy leagues.

Orioles | Pedro Alvarez draws a start

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 13:09:24 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 1B Pedro Alvarez is hitting sixth Saturday, April 30, with OF Nolan Reimold out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Playing time has been sparse for Alvarez after the team faced three straight lefties. Alvarez is 4-for-10 (.400) the last seven days and has an OK .276-2-6 line in 29 at-bats against Mat Latos. He's worth the low-end flyer.

Orioles | Nolan Reimold in lineup vs. lefty

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 12:22:22 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Nolan Reimold is starting in left field and batting eighth against Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon Friday, April 29. DH Pedro Alvarez is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Reimold boasts a .321/.367/.643 slash line through 30 plate appearances to start the season, and he posted a .374 on-base percentage against southpaws last season. Reimold is a potential flier in daily contests Friday. Alvarez is snoozing to start the year and has gone just 8-for-44 with a single RBI. At this point, he is waiver-wire fodder in most leagues.

Orioles | Matt Wieters, Pedro Alvarez out

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 12:26:56 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters and 1B Pedro Alvarez are not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox left-handed SP John Danks Thursday, April 28. C Caleb Joseph is behind the plate and is batting ninth, while OF Nolan Reimold starts again in left field and is hitting seventh. OF Mark Trumbo is serving as the designated hitter and batting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: All Orioles players have some intrigue in Baltimore tonight facing the very hittable Danks. Joseph's daily value is limited while hitting ninth, however. Alvarez is off to a slow start (.186, no home runs) and could be benched regularly against lefties. Pay up for Trumbo tonight.

Orioles | Nolan Reimold draws in vs. southpaw

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 12:47:44 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Nolan Reimold is starting in left field and batting eighth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore Wednesday, April 27. DH Pedro Alvarez is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Reimold had a .374 on-base percentage against southpaws last season, and he stands as a viable flier in daily contests Wednesday. In yearly leagues, he still should be left to cavernous mixed and AL-only formats. Alvarez is off to a horrific start (.186/.314/.256 slash line through 51 plate appearances) and doesn't project to see many at-bats against lefties when showing well at the dish to begin with. He is quickly becoming a tough start in all fantasy formats.

Orioles | Slump-busting game for Pedro Alvarez?

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 18:59:36 -0700

Baltimore Orioles DH Pedro Alvarez went 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles Monday April 25, against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Tip: It might not be a slump-buster, but it's a start. He entered the game with just one double, and even after the four total bases he is still hitting just .150. Fantasy owners and DFS players cannot depend on him just yet, but this could be the start of a hot streak finally.

Orioles | Pedro Alvarez takes a seat

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 13:28:24 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 1B Pedro Alvarez is out of the lineup Saturday, April 23, with OF Hyun-soo Kim hitting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Kim is 3-for-6 in sparse playing time after a brutal spring training. He could be a low-end DFS option at a basement price against Kris Medlen.

Orioles | Pedro Alvarez sitting Thursday

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 12:11:12 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 1B Pedro Alvarez is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 21. OF Mark Trumbo is serving as the designated hitter, which allows OF Nolan Reimold to start in right field. Reimold is hitting ninth against Baltimore Orioles SP Marco Estrada.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez could find himself on the bench more often because of a 4-for-32 (.125) start with seven strikeouts. Reconsider him for a roster spot in mixed formats. Reimold has his daily upside limited because he's hitting ninth, but he already has two homers on the year and faces a decent matchup.
