Pirates | Pedro Alvarez not playing Sunday

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 08:22:36 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Pedro Alvarez is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa Sunday, Aug. 30. 1B Michael Morse will start at first base and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) usually sits against left-handed pitchers, so he is receiving a day off. Morse ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is hitting .323 in limited playing time this month but has not recorded an RBI since July 21, so owners may want to look at other options.

Pirates | Pedro Alvarez hits another solo homer

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 18:38:11 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Pedro Alvarez hit his 21st home run of the season against the Miami Marlins Thursday, Aug. 27. Of those 21 homers, 18 have been hit with nobody on base.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is batting .302 with six home runs and 15 RBIs in 63 at-bats during the month of August and may warrant consideration for FantasyScore lineups if he has a favorable matchup.

Pirates | Pedro Alvarez sitting vs. southpaw

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 14:41:34 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Pedro Alvarez is not in the lineup against Miami Marlins left-handed SP Chris Narveson Wednesday, Aug. 26. 1B Michael Morse is starting at first base and is hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Stacking Pittsburgh hitters tonight is a good idea on FantasyScore tonight against Narveson. That could even ring true for Morse ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) as a deep sleeper despite a disappointing year.

Pirates | Pedro Alvarez resting vs. lefty

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 11:46:58 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Pedro Alvarez is not in the lineup against Miami Marlins left-handed SP Brad Hand Tuesday, Aug. 25. 1B Michael Morse is starting at first base and hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Stacking Pirates hitters against Hand isn't a bad strategy today on FantasyScore. However, Morse, who has really struggled all year at the plate, will still be a deep sleeper pick. He's hitting .171 (6-for-35) with none of his four home runs against lefties this year.

Pirates | Pedro Alvarez reaches 20 homers

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 01:10:27 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Pedro Alvarez reached the 20-homer plateau on Sunday, Aug. 23, as his team beat the San Francisco Giants 5-2.

Fantasy Tip: It has been a maddening season for Alvarez ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) and his owners. Alvarez had two errors to reach 18 for the year. Most leagues don't penalize for errors, but bad defense may lead to decreased playing time. The injury to Travis Ishikawa will help Alvarez a bit, but the fact the Pirates are asking Aramis Ramirez to learn first base only downgrades Alvarez's value.

Pirates | Pedro Alvarez playing first base

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 10:53:32 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Pedro Alvarez will bat seventh against San Francisco Giants SP Mike Leake Saturday, Aug. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) was out of the lineup Friday, Aug. 21, because the team was facing left-handed SP Madison Bumgarner. He is batting .333 with four home runs and 11 RBIs this month and is 11-for-45 (.244) with three doubles and two RBIs in his career against Leake. He makes a decent value play in FantasyScore this afternoon.

Pirates | Pedro Alvarez out vs. Giants

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 13:49:14 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Pedro Alvarez is not in the lineup against San Francisco Giants left-handed SP Madison Bumgarner Friday, Aug. 21. 1B Michael Morse is starting at first base and hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Morse ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) just hasn't been able to get anything going at the plate this year in limited duty, and a matchup against Giants ace Bumgarner tonight shouldn't suddenly make you want to use him in your daily lineups.

Pirates | Pedro Alvarez out vs. Arizona

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 13:36:58 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Pedro Alvarez is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 19. 1B Michael Morse is starting at first base and batting seventh against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is heating up at the dish with four home runs, a .457 batting average and a 1.314 OPS over the past two weeks. He is worth a look in most seasonal leagues and is currently a great bargain at FantasyScore. Morse ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is 4-for-30 against lefties this season and has just 17 plate appearances since joining the Pirates. The juice likely isn't worth the squeeze in daily contests.

Pirates | Pedro Alvarez swats milestone HR

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 21:41:30 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is starting to heat up, as he has homers in back-to-back games while also posting four homers with six RBIs over his past seven games. Strike while the iron is hot in FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Morse ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is 4-for-22 (.182) lifetime against Niese. He's probably a pass on FantasyScore tonight.
