Pirates | Jeff Locke wants more consistency

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 22:54:02 -0800

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke said Friday, March 6, that one of his goals this spring is to be more creative against left-handed hitters. "So many people are so conventional, with left-on-left changeups, etc. You have to be a little unconventional sometimes. You have to find out what works for you," Locke said.

Fantasy Tip: Locke is battling Vance Worley for the final spot in the Pittsburgh rotation. The winner of the battle will have use in NL-only leagues, while fantasy owners in deeper NL-only rotisserie formats will be the only ones who want the loser of the battle.

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke (illness) was excused from camp Thursday, Feb. 19, due to fever and chills.

Fantasy Tip: Locke has shown flashes of a solid fantasy pitcher, but he has yet to put it all together. He'll be a back-end rotation option in NL-only leagues.

Pirates | Set second-half rotation

Mon, 14 Jul 2014 08:18:45 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano will start Friday, July 18, in the first game of the second half, followed by Charlie Morton, Jeff Locke, Edinson Volquez and Vance Worley, according to manager Clint Hurdle.

Fantasy Tip: Gerrit Cole (lat) remains out of the rotation for at least another week, but he should be back sometime in August. Worley remains NL-only fodder for as long as he's taking Cole's spot.

Pirates | Gerrit Cole throws

Thu, 10 Jul 2014 12:29:45 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole (lat) threw on flat ground a few times from approximately 45 or 60 feet Thursday, July 10.

Fantasy Tip: Clearly, Cole isn't close to returning. Continue to stash him in all formats. Jeff Locke and Brandon Cumpton will continue to fill out the Pirates rotation in his absence. Locke is worth consideration in all formats, at least in favorable matchups. Cumpton has fleeting NL-only value, unless Cole is out longer than the expected few weeks.
