Twins | No Kurt Suzuki against Rays

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 13:58:04 -0700

Minnesota Twins C Kurt Suzuki is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26. C Chris Herrmann is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is hitting .279 in August with 11 RBI over 19 games. It isn't huge production, but it pushes the needle in AL-only, cavernous mixed and two-catcher leagues. Herrmann ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) owns a .530 OPS this season and draws Archer ($9,200, 18.4% of cap). The backstop is an ill-advised FantasyScore play Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Herrmann ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) isn't a viable option on FantasyScore, as he's hitting only .162 (12-for-74) with two home runs and 10 RBI as the backup catcher. Eovaldi has been much more consistent in the second half of the season, too.

Twins | Kurt Suzuki out Saturday

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 13:13:46 -0700

Minnesota Twins C Kurt Suzuki is out of the starting lineup Saturday, July 4, against the Kansas City Royals. C Chris Herrmann will start behind the plate and hit eighth in the lineup against RHP Joe Blanton.

Fantasy Tip: Herrmann ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has gone 0-for-8 in his last three starts while drawing two walks. Herrmann hits for a pedestrian .200 batting average against righties, and he lacks upside. FantasyScore owners could consider Herrmann for GPP usage if they're trying to punt the position, but there are better options available.

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 10:29:26 -0700

Minnesota Twins C Kurt Suzuki is not in the starting lineup against the Texas Rangers Saturday, June 13. Chris Herrmann will start behind the plate and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is getting the afternoon off because the team is playing a day game after a night game. Herrmann ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is only batting .174 through 18 games and is only useful in FantasyScore as a means of salary cap relief.
