Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb, Welington Castillo sitting

Sun, 29 May 2016 11:54:49 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb and C Welington Castillo are not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres SP Drew Pomeranz Sunday, May 29. 2B Phil Gosselin will start at third base and is batting second, while C Chris Herrmann will start at catcher and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Gosselin has three hits in his last three games but has only four RBI on the season. Owners could consider using him in their lineups but should be able better options to use. Herrmann has seen more playing time this month and is hitting .413 with three home runs and 13 RBI during that span. He should be a solid starting option in most daily fantasy leagues.

Diamondbacks | Two D-Backs sitting out

Thu, 26 May 2016 07:42:09 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo and SS Nick Ahmed are out of the lineup Thursday, May 26, with OF Michael Bourn hitting second and C Chris Herrmann hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Herrmann is hitting .390 with three homers and 13 RBI this month. He's a great low-end option against Gerrit Cole. Bourn is 6-for-17 (.353) with one steal with the D-Backs, but he's more of a traditional leaguer than a DFS option because his value comes in steals.

Diamondbacks | Chris Herrmann homers in win

Sat, 21 May 2016 00:02:32 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Chris Herrmann homered and singled to drive in three runs Friday, May 20, in an 11-7 win over the St. Louis Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Herrmann is now hitting .290, which is a decent average for a catcher in either league. What's more impressive is his .609 slugging percentage. Herrmann is a solid hitter who should be activated in daily fantasy circles when he plays. As long as Herrmann has a hot bat then you should take advantage of it.

Diamondbacks | No Welington Castillo against Cards

Fri, 20 May 2016 14:46:02 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 20. C Chris Herrmann draws the start behind the dish and is batting sixth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo remains Arizona's starter and a fine midrange fantasy catcher, but he hasn't homered since May 3 and is seeing more time off lately in favor of Herrmann. The lefty swinging Herrmann hasn't been too shabby himself with a .277/.324/.569 line and four home runs. He should garner interest in two-catcher and deeper NL-only leagues for his hot hitting of late. You could do much worse in DFS if you're looking to save money at the catching position tonight.

Diamondbacks | Brandon Drury not playing

Tue, 17 May 2016 16:29:14 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B/OF Brandon Drury is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 17. C Chris Herrmann is starting in right field and is hitting second against New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda.

Fantasy Tip: Herrmann draws a nice lineup position against a struggling pitcher in Pineda. Herrmann does have four home runs and 16 RBI in backup catching duties, but he's more of a wildcard in daily setups tonight. However, you could do worse as a low-end catcher that'll help you save valuable cash.

Diamondbacks | Chris Owings, Welington Castillo sitting

Mon, 16 May 2016 14:23:27 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Chris Owings and C Welington Castillo are not in the starting lineup Monday, May 16. OF Michael Bourn draws a start in center field and is hitting second, while C Chris Herrmann is behind the plate and batting seventh against New York Yankees SP Chad Green.

Fantasy Tip: The 33-year-old Bourn could see decent playing time while David Peralta is on the disabled list. Bourn is worth a low-priced flier in NL-only leagues for his speed. However, keep in mind that he stole just 17 bases in 24 attempts in 482 plate appearances in 2015. Keep expectations in check. Herrmann can hit the occasional home run but remains a low-end catching option in DFS action.

Sun, 15 May 2016 12:51:46 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Herrmann is hitting .333 with two home runs and seven RBI over the last seven days and could be a decent starting option in daily fantasy leagues.

Sat, 14 May 2016 16:01:48 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Herrmann has surged the last seven days with a .333-2-7 line. He makes an excellent streamer at catcher against the struggling Jake Peavy.

Diamondbacks | Two D-Backs resting Wednesday

Wed, 11 May 2016 09:39:29 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo and SS Nick Ahmed are out of the lineup Wednesday, May 11. 2B Phil Gosselin is hitting sixth, and C Chris Herrmann is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Gosselin doesn't have anything that jumps off the page numbers-wise, but the game is in Coors Field. If you're scratching your head for someone to stream at a basement price, maybe he's your answer against Chad Bettis. Speaking of scratching, Herrmann has been clawing at playing time lately and has taken advantage. He's hitting .357 with a couple homers the last week. Add him to the sneaky flyer bin today.
