Twins | Byung Ho Park resting vs. Blue Jays

Fri, 20 May 2016 14:20:23 -0700

Minnesota Twins DH Byung Ho Park is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 20. 3B Jorge Polanco is drawing into the starting lineup at second base and is batting sixth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Park's .233 batting average is a drag, but if you knew he would have nine home runs by May 20 at the draft table, you would have gladly taken it. He should take a run at 30 bombs for the campaign, and there is room for the average to improve. Polanco has 48 career plate appearances and is nothing more than a desperation flier in all fantasy formats Friday.

Twins | Eduardo Nunez takes a seat

Tue, 17 May 2016 12:16:18 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Eduardo Nunez is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 17. 3B Jorge Polanco is starting at the 6 and is hitting second against Detroit Tigers SP Mike Pelfrey.

Fantasy Tip: Polanco has a combined 42 plate appearances in the big leagues to date and has one home run and eight RBI to speak for it. He's a true deep sleeper as a desperation play to save salary cap space in daily games despite the cushy lineup spot.

Twins | Several MIN regulars resting Sunday

Sun, 15 May 2016 08:18:05 -0700

Minnesota Twins 2B Brian Dozier, 3B Trevor Plouffe and C Kurt Suzuki are not in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer Sunday, May 15. 3B/OF Miguel Sano will play the hot corner and bat third, INF Jorge Polanco will bat sixth and play second base and C Juan Centeno will start behind the plate and bat eighth. In addition, OF Oswaldo Arcia will bat fifth and play right field.

Fantasy Tip: Sano is making his fifth start at third base this season but he has struggled over the last two weeks, batting just .179 with two home runs and four RBI in 39 at-bats. Centeno is making his second consecutive start and is worth considering as a value play in DFS after going 5-for-11 with a home run through his first four games this season. Polanco should be viewed exclusively as a source of desperation cap relief in daily fantasy games.
