Reds | Michael Lorenzen to start Wednesday

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 14:27:32 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Michael Lorenzen will be called up to make his major league debut against the Milwaukee Brewers Wednesday, April 29, pushing SP Mike Leake back to Thursday, April 30.

Fantasy Tip: Lorenzen will be a cheap commodity at FantasyScore in his major league debut, and against the struggling Brew Crew, he could be a fantastic profit play to outsmart your competition. It's unclear if this is just a spot start or if he'll remain in the rotation. Lorenzen was 2-1 with a 2.84 ERA and 12 strikeouts in 19 innings for Triple-A Louisville this year.

Reds | Mike Leake likes facing Cubs

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 15:28:03 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake is 4-0 with a 2.45 ERA in his last six starts against the Chicago Cubs, who he faces Friday, April 24.

Fantasy Tip: Leake ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is 0-1 with a 3.92 ERA and 1.11 WHIP while fanning 13 in 20 2/3 innings in 2015. The Cubs lineup has more upside and pop than in recent years, though, and Leake is more of a low-end starting pitching option at FantasyScore tomorrow night.

Reds | Mike Leake likes to face Bucs

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 22:19:32 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake will face the Pittsburgh Pirates Wednesday, April 8. He is 4-0 with a 2.75 ERA in his past eight starts against the Pirates, and he hasn't lost to the Bucs since May 5, 2012.

Fantasy Tip: Leake is a tremendous bargain for FantasyScore owners at just $3,900 (or 7.8% of cap) for Wednesday's slate of MLB games. Take advantage.

Reds | Cincy announces rotation

Wed, 18 Mar 2015 11:22:38 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SPs Johnny Cueto, Mike Leake, Anthony DeSclafani, Jason Marquis and Raisel Iglesias will comprise the team's starting rotation to enter the regular season. SP Paul Maholm is competing for a bullpen spot.

Fantasy Tip: Cueto is really the only pitcher in this five that deserves heavy fantasy baseball attention as an ace for your fake staff. The others are all likely just NL-only targets, with DeSclafani and Iglesias possessing intriguing upside.

Reds | Mike Leake open to contract extension

Sat, 21 Feb 2015 12:24:51 -0800

Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake said he is open to discussing a contract extension with the club, although they haven't approached him yet. "I'll be happy to stay in Cincinnati, but I'd also be happy to go to free agency," Leake said. "I'd like for them to show interest. They haven't yet. If they don't have interest, they don't have interest." He does not have a price range in mind for what it would take to sign him.

Fantasy Tip: Leake is expected to begin the season as Cincinnati's No. 3 starter and will be projected to go in the middle rounds of most fantasy leagues.

Reds | Homer Bailey's start pushed back

Tue, 12 Aug 2014 13:06:23 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Homer Bailey (elbow) will not pitch Wednesday, Aug. 13, because of elbow stiffness. Instead Bailey will pitch Saturday, Aug. 16, against the Colorado Rockies. Manager Bryan Price noted it was a precautionary move, and that the injury is not considered serious. SP Mike Leake will pitch Wednesday, followed by Johnny Cueto and Alfredo Simon.

Fantasy Tip: Strategically sitting Bailey Saturday, at hitter-friendly Coors Field, isn't out of the question.
