Colorado Rockies 1B Ben Paulsen was optioned to Class AAA Albuquerque Friday, May 13. In a corresponding move, INF Daniel Descalso (hand) was activated from the 15-day disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Paulsen heads to the minors with a .258/.300/.379 slash line, and he should be replaced in the majority of leagues, if not all. Descalso won't receive enough playing time to make a fantasy dent, but he is a potential low-priced flier for daily contests when playing at Coors Field. With Paulsen's demotion, Mark Reynolds is locked in as the starting first baseman, and he is sporting a .337/.392/.489 slash line through 102 plate appearances this season. Reynolds is a worthy add in the majority of seasonal leagues.

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is out of the lineup Wednesday, May 11, with OF Ryan Raburn hitting fifth. 1B Mark Reynolds is hitting cleanup with 1B Ben Paulsen out against a left-hander.
Fantasy Tip: Raburn has a .389-3-6 split in 18 at-bats against lefties this season. He looks like a dynamite midrange flyer against Robbie Ray. Reynolds is hitting .333 overall and .387 against lefties. Give him a spin today as well.

Colorado Rockies 1B Ben Paulsen is starting at first base and is hitting seventh against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa Tuesday, May 10. 1B Mark Reynolds will start on the bench.
Fantasy Tip: Paulsen has been the odd-man out more often than not this year with Reynolds hitting well as the primary first baseman. That leaves Paulsen's value mainly in daily formats for matchups against right-handers while home at Coors Field. Look to Paulsen tonight as a low-priced value pick.

Colorado Rockies 1B Mark Reynolds and C Tony Wolters are not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Jeff Samardzija Sunday, May 8. 1B Ben Paulsen will start at first base and is batting seventh, while C Dustin Garneau will start at catcher and is batting eighth.
Fantasy Tip: Paulsen is hitting .276 this season but has only two hits in his last nine games. He could be used in some fantasy leagues but there probably better options for some owners. Garneau was recently recalled from the minors and probably should be avoided by owners.

Colorado Rockies 1B Mark Reynolds and C Nick Hundley are not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Shelby Miller Sunday, May 1. 1B Ben Paulsen will start at first base and is batting seventh, while C Tony Wolters will start at catcher and is batting eighth.
Fantasy Tip: Paulsen has been a bit inconsistent at the plate recently but is still hitting .326 this season and could be a sleeper option in daily fantasy leagues. Wolters has struggled in his limited playing time this season and should be avoided in most leagues.
