Marlins | Martin Prado not in Tuesday lineup

Tue, 31 May 2016 12:38:13 -0700

Miami Marlins 3B Martin Prado is not in the lineup Tuesday, May 31, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. 3B Chris Johnson is in for Prado, and he will hit seventh against Pirates SP Gerrit Cole.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Prado is getting a normal night off, so DFS players should avoid Prado accordingly. Johnson carries little fantasy value (7-for-31, .226 average at home) with a .217 batting average overall.

Marlins | J.T. Realmuto batting second

Tue, 31 May 2016 12:29:09 -0700

Miami Marlins C J.T. Realmuto is batting second in the lineup Tuesday, May 31, against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole.

Fantasy Tip: Realmuto has three hits in four at-bats against Cole, but that's too small a sample size to merit fantasy consideration. Instead, look at the fact the team is batting him second instead of fifth or seventh like he has batted. Realmuto will have more chances to produce runs and hits in that high spot in the lineup. Take a flyer on him in daily leagues.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton still out Tuesday

Tue, 31 May 2016 12:26:33 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton (side) is still out of the starting lineup Tuesday, May 31, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. OF Ichiro Suzuki is in Stanton's place and will bat leadoff against Pirates SP Gerrit Cole.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton sounds like he's close to coming back to active duty, but hold him out of your lineups until you get full clearance. Stanton was struggling horribly, and it's hard to tell if the right-side soreness or another injury may have been to blame. Suzuki is worth utilizing in DFS leagues, because he's still been fairly hot when inserted in your lineup.

Pirates | Gerrit Cole decent in no-decision

Thu, 26 May 2016 14:48:52 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole picked up a no-decision in his start Thursday, May 26, against the Arizona Diamondbacks. He worked five innings, yielding only one unearned run on seven hits and three walks. He also struck out five.

Fantasy Tip: Cole only went five innings because he was pretty much as inefficient as can be, in needing 106 pitches to get through his day. He was actually in line for the win when he departed, but the bullpen coughed it up right away. Even so, this wasn't a bad outing by any stretch, as Cole still helped out owners with ERA and strikeouts. The Pirates ace is in the midst of putting together another nice campaign overall.

Pirates | Gerrit Cole shaky in win

Fri, 20 May 2016 19:07:27 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole didn't record a strikeout in a win over the Colorado Rockies Friday, May 20, allowing one run on 10 hits and walking one over seven innings.

Fantasy Tip: Cole has had some issues with efficiency that have led to some shorter outings, but his ERA stands at a respectable 2.79. The possibility of an early exit makes him a bit risky in daily formats, but he is a solid SP2 in season-long leagues.

Pirates | Gerrit Cole silences Cubs

Sun, 15 May 2016 16:37:03 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole toyed with the Chicago Cubs on Sunday, May 15, allowing only three hits and striking out seven over eight scoreless frames.

Fantasy Tip: Cole didn't get much help from his offense while dropping his first two starts of the season but has picked up the victory in four of his last five outings, holding the opposition to two earned runs or fewer in each of the wins. The Pirates' ace will attempt to notch his first home triumph in his third try against Colorado on Friday and is a strong fantasy option for that contest.

Pirates | Pittsburgh rotation update after PPD

Tue, 10 May 2016 22:37:44 -0700

The Pittsburgh Pirates will use SP Juan Nicasio Wednesday, May 11, against the Cincinnati Reds after the game Tuesday, May 10, was rained out. SP Francisco Liriano will work in the series opener Friday, May 13, against the Chicago Cubs, followed by SP Jeff Locke Saturday, May 14, and SP Gerrit Cole Sunday, May 15.

Fantasy Tip: Nicasio has the best matchup, as he faces the lowly Reds. Locke has the worst luck of the four, as he'll now draw Jake Arrieta in Saturday's game, rather than facing Jason Hammel Friday.

Pirates | Gerrit Cole earns first win

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 00:22:55 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole held the San Diego Padres to four singles in six innings, with no walks and seven strikeouts, in an 11-1 win on Thursday, April 21.

Fantasy Tip: To be fair, San Diego has had its troubles against certain teams this season, but this is still an outstanding outing. In Cole's two losses this year he pitched 10 2/3 innings with four walks and nine strikeouts. He's having good outings, but this was the first one to result in a win. Give Cole time. Eventually he'll put a good string together.

Pirates | Gerrit Cole loses again

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 13:56:13 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole allowed two runs on four hits in six innings against the Detroit Tigers Thursday, April 14, to suffer his second loss of the season. He struck out five batters and walked one in the game.

Fantasy Tip: Cole has allowed five earned runs in his first two starts and has not received much run support during those games. He will look to rebound in his next scheduled start against the San Diego Padres and should still be used in all leagues.

Pirates | Gerrit Cole grazed by liner

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 11:21:18 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole (head) was grazed on the top of his cap by a line drive Thursday, April 14, but he stayed in the game.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like he escaped injury, and he remains a top-flight starter in all formats.
