Nationals | Stephen Strasburg moves to 14-1

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 16:40:22 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg got back into the win column after beating the Cleveland Indians in his start Wednesday, July 27. The right-hander registered seven shutout innings, allowing only three hits and two walks. He also struck out seven.

Fantasy Tip: Well, after proving that he is indeed human when he finally lost his last time out, Strasburg made sure it wouldn't happen twice in a row, recording his third scoreless outing of the season in this one. Now 14-1 with a 2.68 ERA and 155 K's in 127 2/3 innings, Strasburg is clearly one of the favorites for this year's NL Cy Young award.

Nationals | Stephen Strasburg fans 10 in beating

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 14:39:03 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg allowed six runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out 10 batters during the Nationals' 6-3 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers Thursday, July 21.

Fantasy Tip: It was just the fourth time in 18 starts that Strasburg allowed more than three runs this season, and in 12 outings, he's limited opponents to two runs or fewer. And, the 10 punchouts mitigated some of the damage of the rough showing. Strasburg remains a high-end fantasy arm, and view this start as a blip on the radar.

Pirates | Gregory Polanco out Friday

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 14:03:00 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco (hamstring) will miss the game Friday, July 15, due to hamstring issues. OF Matt Joyce will play in right field and bat fifth against Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg.

Fantasy Tip: Polanco (.287-12-50) will be missed, but Joyce (.295-8-27) isn't a slouch hitter, either. Joyce is safe to insert in Polanco's place in all DFS lineups. As for Polanco, keep him idled until he returns.

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 13:59:48 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Josh Harrison (foot) is back in the lineup Friday, July 15, against Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg. Harrison will lead off.

Fantasy Tip: Harrison (.274-3-41) has 14 stolen bases coming out of the All-Star break, but foot problems have hindered him. Hopefully the break did some good. Leave him off your lineup for a game to see what happens.
