Pirates | Two Pirates sitting Thursday

Thu, 26 May 2016 07:41:23 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B John Jaso and 2B Josh Harrison are out of the lineup Thursday, May 26, with 1B David Freese hitting third and 2B Sean Rodriguez hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Freese homered yesterday and is hitting .350 against lefties this year. He's a solid option against Patrick Corbin. Rodriguez is hitting just .258 this month after a fast start. He hits lefties much better than righties, though, and he's a low-end option.

Pirates | Josh Harrison scratched with illness

Wed, 25 May 2016 14:56:36 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Josh Harrison (illness) was scratched from the starting lineup with an illness Wednesday, May 25. 1B Sean Rodriguez is replacing Harrison at second base and is batting sixth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa.

Fantasy Tip: S-Rod isn't a bad replacement, as he's hitting .298 with four home runs and 14 RBI. De La Rosa has improved this season but isn't exactly a daunting matchup, making Rodriguez worth a look as a midrange flier in daily contests.

Pirates | John Jaso, Josh Harrison out again

Wed, 11 May 2016 11:12:59 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B John Jaso and 2B Josh Harrison are out of the lineup again Wednesday, May 11, after the game the previous day was postponed. 3B David Freese is leading off, and 2B Sean Rodriguez is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Freese has a .282-1-10 line with a decent matchup against Alfredo Simon. It's questionable how well Freese translates to the leadoff spot, but Andrew McCutchen is behind him. He should see plenty of fastballs when the order turns over. Rodriguez still has a ridiculous .341-4-14 line, and both are worthy considerations today.

Pirates | John Jaso, Josh Harrison sitting

Tue, 10 May 2016 11:30:57 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B John Jaso and 2B Josh Harrison are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 10. 3B David Freese is starting at first base and hitting leadoff, while 1B Sean Rodriguez is at the keystone and is batting seventh against Cincinnati Reds SP Alfredo Simon.

Fantasy Tip: Leadoff is an odd spot for Freese, but the positioning atop the order gives him mild intrigue as a daily sleeper against the hittable Simon tonight. Rodriguez has four homers, 14 RBI and a .341 average in just 44 at-bats this year and also profiles as a sleeper to target in DFS action tonight.

Pirates | Starling Marte, Josh Harrison out

Tue, 03 May 2016 11:50:39 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte and 2B Josh Harrison are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 3. OF Matt Joyce is starting in right field and hitting cleanup, while 1B Sean Rodriguez is at the keystone and is batting seventh against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta.

Fantasy Tip: Joyce and Rodriguez have been very productive as role players for the Bucs to start the year, but their daily fantasy stock is down tonight while facing the almighty Arrieta.

Pirates | Josh Harrison's streak ends at 10

Mon, 02 May 2016 23:37:37 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Josh Harrison's hitting streak ended at 10 games Monday, May 2.

Fantasy Tip: J-Hay is hitting .313 with 15 RBI and five steals. He should be owned just about everywhere and is a daily consideration in the upper-middle second basemen.

Pirates | Starling Marte sitting Thursday

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 09:49:50 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte is out of the lineup Thursday, April 28, with OF Matt Joyce hitting cleanup. C Francisco Cervelli also has the day off, which bumps 2B Josh Harrison up to fifth, and C Chris Stewart is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Joyce has a .333-2-7 line and is a solid plug-and-play in Coors Field against Tyler Chatwood. J-Hay is on fire and is a daily consideration. Stewart is a basement flyer because of the park.

Pirates | Pittsburgh resting right side of infield

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 12:48:21 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B John Jaso and 2B Josh Harrison are not in the lineup Sunday, April 24, against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray. SS Jordy Mercer will replace Jaso in the leadoff spot while 1B Jason Rogers will occupy first base and bat fifth. INF Sean Rodriguez will slide over to second base and hit sixth.

Fantasy Tip: It's a rest day for Jaso and Harrison, each of whom are hitting well over .300. Mercer is 8-for-15 with a homer in the four games he has played during the Pirates' 10-game West Coast road trip and is a sensible low-cost option in DFS. Rodriguez has homered in each of the first two games of this series and appears to be in the middle of one of his patented power binges, making him a fine short-term pickup.

Pirates | Solid game for Josh Harrison

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 00:34:54 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Josh Harrison had two runs scored and two RBI singles Thursday, April 21, in an 11-1 win over the San Diego Padres.

Fantasy Tip: Harrison was a .287-4-28 hitter a year ago, but he already has nine runs batted in this season to go with a .302 average. His play didn't make Neil Walker expendable, but the infield of David Freese at third, Jordy Mercer at shortstop, Harrison at second and John Jaso at first base is working very well. Play Harrison as long as he is exceeding expectations.

Pirates | Josh Harrison is hot

Tue, 29 Mar 2016 11:33:58 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Josh Harrison went 2-for-3 in spring action with a triple and double Tuesday, March 29, and he has reached base safely in 10 of his last 11 games and leads the Pirates in doubles (seven).

Fantasy Tip: Harrison likely had his best year in 2014, but he offers fantasy owners a nice mix of decent power and speed at multiple positions. That'll make him valuable in the later rounds of mixed leagues as roster depth.
