Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte (ankle), 3B Jung Ho Kang, 2B Josh Harrison and C Francisco Cervelli are not in the starting lineup for the second game of a doubleheader against the New York Mets Tuesday, June 7. OF Gregory Polanco will start in left field, while OF Matt Joyce will start in right field and is batting fourth against Mets SP Jacob deGrom. 1B Sean Rodriguez will start at third base and is batting sixth. 2B Cole Figueroa will start at second base and is batting seventh, while C Chris Stewart will start at catcher and is batting eighth.
Fantasy Tip: Joyce is probably the only player that has value among the new players in the lineup. Joyce is hitting .319 on the season and should be an attractive option in daily fantasy leagues.

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Jung Ho Kang is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 6. 3B Cole Figueroa is starting at the hot corner and batting eighth against New York Mets SP Steven Matz.
Fantasy Tip: The left-handed hitting third baseman has just four hits in 20 at-bats (.200) this year and doesn't have a single home run in 44 career major league games. Avoid him everywhere tonight.

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Josh Harrison is not starting Saturday, May 28, against the Texas Rangers. 2B Cole Figueroa is batting ninth against Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish.
Fantasy Tip: Harrison was sick earlier in the week, but this appears to be a normal night off. Harrison has a .538 average in the last week and is tearing the cover off the ball. Figueroa doesn't have a broad sample size to merit fantasy consideration and should be left off your lineup.

New York Yankees 3B Chase Headley (calf) remains out of the lineup Friday, July 10. 3B Cole Figueroa is starting at the hot corner and hitting ninth against Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz.
Fantasy Tip: Figueroa should be ignored in daily games even after recording two hits in four at-bats after being recalled from the minors the other day.

New York Yankees 3B Chase Headley (calf) is out of the lineup Thursday, July 9. The team recalled 3B Cole Figueroa from Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and optioned 2B Jose Pirela to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Fantasy Tip: Figueroa is in the lineup hitting ninth against Jesse Chavez. He had a .317-3-36 line on the farm, but give him a day or two to wet his toes before using him on FantasyScore.
