Twins | Brian Dozier sitting against Angels

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 08:39:30 -0700

Minnesota Twins 2B Brian Dozier is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Sept. 20. SS Eduardo Nunez draws into the lineup and is batting ninth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Dozier ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has slowed down significantly in the second half with a .206/.286/.361 slash line. It isn't out of the question to surf the waiver wire for an upgrade in seasonal leagues. Nunez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) offers sneaky upside at FantasyScore with a .313/.350/.443 line against right-handed hurlers this season.

Twins | Brian Dozier sitting vs. Cleveland

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 15:13:37 -0700

Minnesota Twins 2B Brian Dozier is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 14. SS Eduardo Escobar is starting at second base and batting seventh against Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Dozier ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday. He has emerged as the premiere power hitter at the keystone this season with 24 home runs. Escobar ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is nothing more than a low-priced flier at FantasyScore Friday, and you should likely aim higher.
