Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte was activated from the paternity list Thursday, May 19, and 2B/OF Alen Hanson was optioned to Class AAA Indianapolis.
Fantasy Tip: Marte is hitting fifth against Mike Foltynewicz Thursday, and he's a daily consideration in DFS. Hanson remains an interesting prospect, but he can be dumped in all single-year formats.

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte was placed on the paternity list Monday, May 16. SS Alen Hanson was called up from the minors in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Marte is expected to miss a few games to start the week as a result. Act accordingly in traditional leagues. Matt Joyce might benefit the most with several starts in the outfield this week. He could be a great value play in daily setups, considering he's swinging exceptionally well (.333/.480/.692) in limited at-bats with Pittsburgh this year.

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte is expected to be sidelined on paternity leave Monday, May 16, and the Pirates are calling up SS/OF Alen Hanson when the move occurs.
Fantasy Tip: Hanson stole 35 bags at Triple-A last season and has seven in the early goings of 2016. He's expected to be a short-term callup, but he's worth the roll of the dice if you can find a spot in NL-only leagues. Marte could be out two or three days. He's certainly worth consideration to remain in your lineups for the back end of the week.
