Twins | Kurt Suzuki out against Cleveland

Mon, 28 Sep 2015 13:02:03 -0700

Minnesota Twins C Kurt Suzuki is not in the starting lineup Monday, Sept. 28. C Chris Herrmann is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Suzuki ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Monday. He remains a low-end option in AL-only, cavernous mixed and two-catcher formats, but he should start the rest of the games with Minnesota chasing a playoff berth. Herrmann ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore Monday.

Twins | Kurt Suzuki resting

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 09:19:49 -0700

Minnesota Twins C Kurt Suzuki is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Sept. 3. C Chris Herrmann draws the start behind the plate and is batting eighth against Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija.

Fantasy Tip: On a day with very few games for FantasyScore users, Herrmann ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) still remains an unattractive option, unless you want to load up on studs for the rest of your roster. He's hitting only .165 (15-for-91) with two home runs and 10 RBI in a backup role in 2015.

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: Suzuki ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is receiving a day off and will return to the lineup soon. Herrmann ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has not done much in his limited playing time this season and should not be a starting option.

Twins | Kurt Suzuki resting Wednesday

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 09:06:30 -0700

Minnesota Twins C Kurt Suzuki is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 19. C Chris Herrmann is starting and is hitting eighth against New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi.

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.
