Pirates | Francisco Cervelli sitting vs. Milwaukee

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 13:49:20 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 21. Pirates C Eric Fryer is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Cervelli is a fringe starting catcher in shallow leagues, but in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and NL-only settings, he's worth rolling with. Fryer is a potential low-priced flier in daily contests Thursday, but he's an afterthought in seasonal leagues.

Pirates | Jung Ho Kang starting Saturday

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 15:58:55 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Jung Ho Kang is in back in the lineup batting cleanup Saturday, July 9, against Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester and will play third base. 1B/3B David Freese will replace 1B John Jaso at first and hit second, while C Eric Fryer will bat eighth and fill in for C Erik Kratz.

Fantasy Tip: Even though Lester is coming off a horrible outing, it is hard to recommend any of these Pirates in DFS or most normal-sized leagues, although it is worth noting Kang is 3-for-9 and Freese is 5-for-13 against the southpaw. Fryer is worth adding in two-catcher leagues and may end up becoming the regular catcher in Pittsburgh before long.

Pirates | Eric Fryer stings former team

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 22:35:18 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Eric Fryer wasted little time exacting revenge on the team that released him less than a week ago, finishing 2-for-4 with an RBI single in the fifth inning and a two-run single in the sixth in a win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday, July 5.

Fantasy Tip: Fryer lost out in a numbers game in St. Louis when backup catcher Brayan Pena came off the 15-day disabled list, but owners need to keep a close eye on him, at least in the short term. The Ohio native batted .368 with St. Louis with five RBI in 38 at-bats behind Yadier Molina before his release and should get plenty of playing time over the next few weeks as Pittsburgh awaits the return of Francisco Cervelli. DFS owners should consider him a low-cost upside play.

Pirates | Chris Stewart to DL

Mon, 04 Jul 2016 08:28:33 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Chris Stewart (knee) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday, July 4, with left knee discomfort. C Eric Fryer was added to the active roster.

Fantasy Tip: The Bucs are in dire straits at the backstop, and Erik Kratz and Fryer should platoon. Neither are fantasy relevant unless you're needing a second catcher in NL-only leagues.

Cardinals | Brayan Pena activated

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 10:34:47 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Brayan Pena (knee) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, June 28. C Eric Fryer was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Pena hasn't played yet this year and should serve as Yadier Molina's primary backup. Pena shouldn't have much fantasy value at all with limited playing time.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina receives day off

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 12:24:57 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP James Paxton Sunday, June 26. C Eric Fryer will start at catcher and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Fryer is hitting .394 in his limited playing time but has received only eight at-bats this month. Owners in most leagues should be able to find better options to use in their lineups.
