Arizona Diamondbacks C/OF Chris Herrmann (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring on Sunday, July 17, after receiving the results of an MRI. 2B/OF Mike Freeman was recalled from Class AAA Reno in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Herrmann has been playing through his hamstring issue but aggravated it on Friday. Although he is still one of the better fantasy catching options for the season, with his .290 average, six homers and 28 RBI, he has only managed one home run and eight RBI in part-time duty since the start of June, making him even a poor option in two-catcher leagues.

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Brandon Drury is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 15, against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Bud Norris. OF Yasmany Tomas has shifted over to right field, and C Chris Herrmann is in left.
Fantasy Tip: The club would like to get Herrmann some playing time, as he is hitting .291-6-28 with five doubles and four triples. His .511 slugging mark is quite strong. Herrmann merits consideration in DFS leagues, but he does not have a regular spot yet to call his own.

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 6. C Chris Herrmann is doing the catching and is hitting fifth against San Diego Padres SP Colin Rea.
Fantasy Tip: Herrmann has been a pleasant surprise for the Snakes this year, slashing .289/.353/.504 with six home runs and 27 RBI in 135 at-bats. He's a perfect second catcher in two-catcher formats, and he profiles as a decent value selection in DFS tonight against Rea.

Arizona Diamondbacks C/OF Chris Herrmann (hamstring) was scratched from the starting lineup Sunday, July 3, because of a hamstring injury. OF Yasmany Tomas will start in right field, while OF Brandon Drury will start in left field and is batting seventh against San Francisco Giants SP Albert Suarez.
Fantasy Tip: Drury only has five hits in the last eight games and has not recorded an RBI since May 29. Owners should be able to find better options to use in their lineups. Tomas has posted solid numbers this season and should be a starting candidate.

Arizona Diamondbacks C/OF Chris Herrmann is starting in right field and batting sixth against San Francisco Giants SP Johnny Cueto Friday, July 1. OF Peter O'Brien is not in the starting lineup Friday.
Fantasy Tip: Herrmann is a viable option in deep mixed, two-catcher and NL-only leagues because of his eligibility behind the plate and .286/.350/.508 slash line. The only knock is his lack of playing time (just 141 plate appearances). It's also worth noting, he's a weak daily option against Cueto Friday. While O'Brien has four home runs through his first 18 games this season, he's also 7-for-54, which makes him a tough start in the majority of seasonal leagues.
