Pirates | Josh Harrison not in lineup Tuesday

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 12:58:47 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Josh Harrison is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 30, against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Harrison ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) appears to be the odd man out because the Pirates are playing in an AL park. Francisco Cervelli ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is at designated hitter so Chris Stewart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is at catcher.

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 09:47:57 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Neil Walker is not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Alex Wood Sunday, June 28. 3B Josh Harrison will start at second base and is batting first in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has struggled against left-handed pitchers, which is why he is sitting out. Harrison ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) has at least one hit in 14 of his last 16 games and is a solid starting option on FantasyScore.

Pirates | No Starling Marte vs. Reds

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 14:25:22 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 25. 3B Josh Harrison is starting in right field and batting first, and OF Gregory Polanco is starting in left field and batting second against Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Marte ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) left a game last week with an ankle injury, but it is likely just a night off for the outfielder Thursday. Make sure to avoid him in FantasyScore contests and keep an eye out for updates concerning any potential injuries. Harrison ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) and Polanco ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) are worth considering for daily contests Thursday, but neither are lineup locks.

Pirates | Gregory Polanco in leadoff spot

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 11:44:20 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco is hitting leadoff against Cincinnati Reds SP Josh Smith Tuesday, June 23. 3B Josh Harrison moves down to the No. 5 spot in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Most of the Bucs starters are worth considering for a stack in your FantasyScore lineups tonight against Smith, who's making a spot start for his major league debut. Polanco ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) looks especially attractive as a value play while hitting atop the order.

Pirates | Neil Walker out of the lineup vs. Nats

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 12:42:53 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Neil Walker is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 19. 3B Josh Harrison is filling in at the keystone and leading off against Washington Nationals SP Joe Ross Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) also missed the game Thursday, June 18, with a stomach ailment. So fantasy owners will want to make sure he is starting Saturday before returning him to their lineups. Harrison ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) has been scorching hot of late with five runs, four RBI, three stolen bases and a .442/.479/.512 slash line over his last 10 games. He is worth considering for FantasyScore contests Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Polanco ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) was benched Monday because the White Sox had a lefty pitcher, and Tuesday appears to be the same reason. Sit Polanco in FantasyScore daily games.
