Nationals | Tanner Roark a model of consistency

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 15:31:02 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Tanner Roark has lasted at least seven innings in five straight starts and is coming off his best outing in which he threw eight scoreless innings against the Pittsburgh Pirates. He hosts the San Diego Padres Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Roark sits with a sparking 2.82 ERA and 1.17 WHIP while striking out 7.7 batters per nine innings. There might not be a safer value play in daily formats than Roark against the Padres without Wil Myers on Friday night. He's a great play.

Pirates | PIT reshuffles lineup Saturday

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 14:11:08 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B/3B David Freese is not in the lineup against Washington Nationals RH Tanner Roark on Saturday, July 16. 1B John Jaso is playing first and batting leadoff, OF Starling Marte moves from the cleanup spot in the team's previous game to second and occupy left field. 3B Jung Ho Kang is hitting fourth and will replace Freese at third, INF/OF Sean Rodriguez is batting fifth and will be stationed in right field while 2B Josh Harrison will slide down from first to sixth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Of the Pirates' top six hitters from Friday's 5-1 loss, only Andrew McCutchen will retain his spot in the order (third). Marte and McCutchen each have a home run in limited at-bats against Roark and are the best plays from Pittsburgh's lineup in daily or traditional formats today.

Nationals | Tanner Roark silences Phillies

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 12:53:10 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Tanner Roark bounced back from a poor outing to defeat the Philadelphia Phillies for the second time in three starts Saturday, June 11, striking out seven over as many scoreless innings.

Fantasy Tip: Roark has faced Philadelphia three times this season and worked exactly seven frames in every outing, holding the Phillies scoreless twice and allowing two runs in the other turn. The 29-year-old gets another favorable matchup at Petco Park against the San Diego Padres on Thursday, and is a highly recommended fantasy start for that contest.
