Pirates | Neil Walker out vs. Cards

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 14:20:28 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Neil Walker is not in the starting lineup Friday, Sept. 4. 2B Josh Harrison is starting at second base and batting second against St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Walker ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday. He has hit a bit of a funk of late going 7-for-34 with just one run and five RBI over his past 12 games. Harrison ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is struggling since returning from the disabled list Friday, Aug. 21, and facing Martinez ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) makes Harrison a low-end option at FantasyScore Friday.

Pirates | Andrew McCutchen resting vs. Brewers

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 13:56:15 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Andrew McCutchen is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Sept. 3. 2B Josh Harrison draws into the lineup and is batting second against Milwaukee Brewers SP Taylor Jungmann Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: McCutchen ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) posted a .348/.470/.609 slash line with 18 runs, five home runs, 19 RBI and two stolen bases in August, and he projects to finish the season strong. Harrison ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has been relegated to a bench role of late, but he stands as a viable value option for FantasyScore players Thursday. He does sport an underwhelming .547 OPS since returning from the disabled list Friday, Aug. 21, though.

Pirates | Josh Harrison remains out of lineup

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 13:48:01 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Josh Harrison is not in the starting lineup against the Milwaukee Brewers Wednesday, Sept. 2.

Fantasy Tip: This is the second consecutive game Harrison ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has sat out, so there is potential he stands to be the odd-man out of the infield shuffle. Still, it is unlikely he can't help in deep mixed leagues with the at-bats he receives.

Pirates | Josh Harrison receives the night off

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 14:47:02 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Josh Harrison is not in the starting lineup against the Milwaukee Brewers Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Fantasy Tip: The Pirates have exceptional depth, so a would-be regular has to sit out nightly, and Harrison ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is the guy Tuesday. He projects to continue to receive semi-regular at-bats going forward and is worth owning in the majority of seasonal formats. He is just 5-for-21 without an extra-base hit since returning from the disabled list Monday, Aug. 21.

Pirates | Neil Walker sitting out

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 08:42:29 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Neil Walker is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa Sunday, Aug. 30. 2B Josh Harrison will start at second base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is receiving a day off because he struggles against left-handed pitchers. Harrison ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has five hits and one RBI in his last five games and could be a starting option on FantasyScore.

Pirates | Starling Marte on the bench

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 13:08:25 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Chris Rusin Saturday, Aug. 29. 2B Josh Harrison will start in left field and is batting second in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Marte ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Harrison ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has gone 3-for-14 since he has come off the disabled list and may not be the best option at this point.

Pirates | Gregory Polanco out vs. Miami

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 14:30:23 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco is not in the lineup against Miami Marlins left-handed SP Chris Narveson Wednesday, Aug. 26. 3B Josh Harrison is starting in right field and hitting leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: Harrison ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has been quiet since his return from the DL, but this is the exact type of matchup that could get him going -- a soft-tossing, hittable lefty. Harrison has good marks against southpaws this year, too (.292/.356/.385).

Pirates | Neil Walker takes a seat

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 11:50:29 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Neil Walker is not in the lineup against Miami Marlins left-handed SP Brad Hand Tuesday, Aug. 25. 3B Josh Harrison is starting at the keystone and hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Harrison ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is fresh off returning from the DL this week, so many daily gamers may be avoiding him. You shouldn't; Harrison has a slash line of .306/.371/.403 in 62 at-bats against lefties this year.

Pirates | Aramis Ramirez draws out of the lineup

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 13:40:12 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Aramis Ramirez is not in the starting lineup Monday, Aug. 24. SS Jordy Mercer is starting at shortstop and batting eighth with SS Jung Ho Kang sliding over to play third base and bat fourth against Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler Monday. 2B Josh Harrison is not in the starting lineup Monday, either.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Ramirez ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) and Harrison ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Monday. Expect the Pirates to split up starts among their infielders, which slightly caps all their seasonal value. Mercer ($2,400, 4.8% of cap), Kang ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) and Neil Walker ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) will also receive some games off. For FantasyScore contests Monday, Kang is the more attractive shortstop option.

Pirates | Josh Harrison out of Sunday lineup

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 13:43:24 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Josh Harrison is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 23, against the San Francisco Giants. 3B Aramis Ramirez is batting fourth against Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong.

Fantasy Tip: Harrison ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) just came off the disabled list earlier this week, so this might be the team's way of keeping him refreshed by sitting him. He has been pressing with no hits in five at-bats. Ramirez ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is 9-for-27 with a .333 average against Vogelsong, so feel free to play him in FantasyScore.
