Twins | Byung Ho Park not in the lineup

Mon, 30 May 2016 10:56:27 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Byung Ho Park is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Kendall Graveman Monday, May 30. OF Miguel Sano will serve as the designated hitter, while OF Oswaldo Arcia will start in right field and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Arcia has not received a lot of playing time over the last few weeks but does have three hits in his last two games. Owners in most leagues likely will be able to find better players to use in their lineups and can avoid Arcia.

Twins | Brian Dozier, Miguel Sano shake slumps

Thu, 26 May 2016 10:01:42 -0700

Minnesota Twins 2B Brian Dozier and OF Miguel Sano both broke out of power slumps with home runs Wednesday, May 25. Dozier struck out twice and lined out in his other at-bats, but manager Paul Molitor liked that Dozier wasn't trying to pull everything. Sano struck out his first time up and entered the game with a league-high 66 strikeouts. Molitor sees Sano getting through his funk at the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Dozier's low batting average on balls in play (.217) suggests more hits and home runs are in his future. After all, he did club 28 long balls a season ago. If the Dozier owner in your league is frustrated, take a gander at buying low. With Sano, you get what you see; tons of elite power potential as a 30-homer candidate but also a lot of swings and misses. He'll kill your average but aid you in power.

Wed, 25 May 2016 17:57:03 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Miguel Sano went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer, a walk and two runs scored in a victory over the Kansas City Royals Wednesday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Sano is batting just .221 with an MLB-leading 67 strikeouts through 45 games and had collected just two hits in his previous 24 at-bats before homering in the fifth inning Wednesday. DFS players should wait for him to string together several solid performances at the plate before relying on him again

Twins | Byung Ho Park taking the day off

Tue, 24 May 2016 14:58:27 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Byung Ho Park is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 24. OF Miguel Sano is serving as the designated hitter, while OF Oswaldo Arcia draws into the lineup in right field and is hitting sixth against Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez.

Fantasy Tip: Sano has elite power but is a boom-or-bust daily pick. Arcia is of a similar nature to Sano with big power and a big swing but with with plenty of strikeouts to boot. He's hitting only .217 this year but has four home runs in 83 at-bats. Arcia qualifies as more of a sleeper selection in DFS.

Sat, 21 May 2016 08:54:57 -0700

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.

Twins | Miguel Sano hits fourth homer

Wed, 11 May 2016 15:01:23 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Miguel Sano went 1-for-4 with a solo home run during the Twins' 9-2 loss to the Baltimore Orioles Wednesday, May 11.

Fantasy Tip: After hitting 18 home runs and posting a .530 slugging percentage through just 335 plate appearances last season, Sano's start to 2016 has been disappointing. He currently has just four home runs and 13 RBI with an underwhelming .227/.326/.378 slash line. Expect the bomber to pick up the pace offensively sooner than later. Remain patient with Sano.
