Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte is not in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Shane Greene Tuesday, April 14. OF Corey Hart is starting in right field and hitting fifth in the batting order.
Fantasy Tip: Hart ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) had a pinch-hit home run in Monday's win, so he's entering with a little momentum. However, he's more of a low-end outfield option at FantasyScore against Greene and the Tigers.

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Andrew McCutchen (knee) is not in the starting lineup against the Milwaukee Brewers Saturday, April 11, because of left knee pain. OF Starling Marte will play center field and bat cleanup, with OF Andrew Lambo playing left field and batting seventh.
Fantasy Tip: It is uncertain how much time McCutchen ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) will miss or even if he'll be available to pinch-hit later in the game, so keep checking back for updates. Marte ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is a viable option for FantasyScore owners looking for a low-cost, high-potential outfielder but Lambo ($1,600) isn't worthy of consideration in daily leagues.
