Rays | Marc Krauss starting Sunday

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 07:38:18 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B Marc Krauss is starting at first base and hitting seventh in the order Sunday, June 28, against the Boston Red Sox and RHP Justin Masterson. OF Jake Elmore comes out of the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Krauss is hitting just .162 on the season, having split time between the Rays and the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Krauss shouldn't be garnering FantasyScore consideration.

Rays | TB acquired Marc Krauss

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 15:43:07 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Marc Krauss was acquired by the Tampa Bay Rays in exchange for P Kyle Winkler Thursday, June 25. A team official said Krauss will mostly start at first base against right-handed pitchers.

Fantasy Tip: Krauss hit just .143 (5-for-35) in limited time with the Angels this year. He has considerable power from the left side of the plate, but he doesn't make much contact and strikes out frequently. He shouldn't be high on your list of first baseman on FantasyScore when he joins the Rays.

Angels | Marc Krauss likely to be optioned

Thu, 28 May 2015 06:58:27 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim DH Marc Krauss is expected to be optioned to Class AAA Salt Lake Thursday, May 28. He was seen packing up his locker after the Angels' 5-4 loss to the San Diego Padres Tuesday, May 27. In a corresponding move, Angels OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis is expected to replace him on the active roster.

Fantasy Tip: Krauss is a fringe player and had only spot-play worth in daily action, so this isn't exactly an earth-shattering move.

Angels | Chris Iannetta serving as DH

Wed, 27 May 2015 15:14:59 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim C Chris Iannetta is serving as the designated hitter and hitting seventh in the batting order against San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner Wednesday, May 27. 1B Marc Krauss is starting on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Iannetta ($2,300, 4.6% of cap), despite recently breaking a long slump, is still hitting only .161 (15-for-93) on the season, with two home runs and nine RBI. There's nothing that says to trust Iannetta against Cashner, who has been solid despite nothing to show for it in the win column in 2015.

Angels | C.J. Cron sitting against righties

Fri, 22 May 2015 15:12:43 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B C.J. Cron has a slash line of .200/.222/.274 and hasn't been starting against right-handers, including Friday, May 22. OF Marc Krauss is serving as the designated hitter and hitting eighth in the batting order against Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Cron ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) isn't usable at FantasyScore until he turns things around against righties. Krauss ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) hit his first homer last night, but he remains a deep sleeper at FantasyScore, especially against Porcello, who has limited lefty sticks to a .248/.299/.450 slash line in 2015.

Angels | Marc Krauss batting Thursday

Thu, 21 May 2015 12:42:32 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Marc Krauss is in the lineup Thursday, May 21, against the Toronto Blue Jays. Krauss is batting second.

Fantasy Tip: Krauss ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is hitting .154 in the last week, so he appears to be the lesser of the two possibilities as long as Albert Pujols is out with a wrist injury. Avoid using Krauss if at all possible.

Angels | Albert Pujols left game

Wed, 20 May 2015 17:36:05 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols (wrist) left the game Wednesday, May 20, against the Toronto Blue Jays. Pujols originally stayed in the game but he was replaced by 1B Marc Krauss for the next turn through the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Krauss ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) would benefit the most if Pujols were to miss any time. Krauss has opened the season with just one hit in his first 14 plate appearances. Not much is known about the extent of Pujols' injury, but Krauss won't be a viable option even with expanded playing time.

Angels | C.J. Cron sitting out against Rockies

Wed, 13 May 2015 15:21:55 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim DH/1B C.J. Cron is not in the starting lineup against the Colorado Rockies Wednesday, May 13. OF/1B Marc Krauss is batting ninth as the designated hitter Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Cron ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is batting .193 this season with just a single home run and six RBI through 87 plate appearances. Outside of AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, seasonal owners should aim higher. Krauss is nothing more than a flier for daily contests Wednesday. He profiles as a feast or famine slugger at the majors with 10 home runs over 357 career plate appearances and a .198 batting average and a .609 OPS.

Angels | C.J. Cron not playing Tuesday

Tue, 12 May 2015 16:01:22 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF C.J. Cron is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 12. OF Marc Krauss is starting at first base and hitting ninth in the batting order against Colorado Rockies SP Kyle Kendrick. 1B Albert Pujols will serve as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Krauss ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) has a good matchup against the struggling Kendrick, but his lineup position hurts his chances of coming through for you as a low-priced deep sleeper pick.
