Rockies | Nick Hundley sitting vs. Tampa

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 09:14:23 -0700

Colorado Rockies C Nick Hundley is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 20. C Tony Wolters is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Hundley has underwhelmed during a 30-game stretch with a .230/.310/.380 slash line and just two home runs and 14 RBI since returning from the disabled list Friday, June 3. Currently, he should be viewed as a low-end option in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and NL-only leagues. Given the game is at Coors Field, Wolters is worth starting in all seasonal leagues and warrants a long look in daily contests. He owns a .311/.391/.492 line at home this season, after all.

Rockies | Mark Reynolds, Nick Hundley resting

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 16:23:11 -0700

Colorado Rockies 1B Mark Reynolds and C Nick Hundley are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 6. 2B Daniel Descalso is starting at first base and hitting sixth, while C Tony Wolters is behind the plate and batting eighth against San Francisco Giants SP Johnny Cueto.

Fantasy Tip: Both Descalso and Wolters are deep sleepers, at best, in DFS games tonight. Descalso has been hot of late and is hitting .377 (23-for-61) with two homers and 17 RBI on the year, but his offensive ceiling is limited. Wolters has an ugly .211/.297/.316 line with a long ball and 15 RBI.

Rockies | Three Rockies regulars out

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 10:22:15 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Trevor Story, 2B DJ LeMahieu (knee) and C Nick Hundley are all out of the starting lineup Wednesday, June 29. SS Cristhian Adames is starting at the 6 and hitting second, 2B Daniel Descalso is at second and batting sixth and C Tony Wolters is doing the catching and hitting eighth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez.

Fantasy Tip: Story and LeMahieu have been dinged up lately. Story returned to the lineup yesterday and LeMahieu should return any day. Adames, Descalso and Wolters don't bring much to the table offensively and should all be considered low-end DFS options this afternoon against a strong pitcher.

Rockies | Career game for Tony Wolters

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 18:34:49 -0700

Colorado Rockies C Tony Wolters went 3-for-3 with a home run, the first of his career, a double, four RBI and a run scored in an 11-6 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks Saturday, June 25.

Fantasy Tip: Wolters' is a defensive-minded catcher with little pop, so there is no need to rush out to add him after his career day at the plate.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez, Trevor Story return

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 11:57:28 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez and SS Trevor Story are back in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Shelby Miller Saturday, June 25. In addition, INF Daniel Descalso will bat sixth and play first base, while C Tony Wolters starts behind the plate and bats eighth. 1B Mark Reynolds and C Nick Hundley are receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez is batting .317 with five homers and 17 RBI through 79 June at-bats, while Story is hitting .282 with four homers and 13 RBI this month. Both players should be viewed as viable fantasy options this afternoon. Wolters is hitless in his last 12 at-bats and should be avoided in all formats, while Descalso is nothing more than an inexpensive flier option.

Rockies | COL makes several lineup changes

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 08:30:44 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Ryan Raburn, 1B Mark Reynolds and C Nick Hundley are not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler Sunday, June 19. INF Daniel Descalso will bat sixth and play first base, OF Brandon Barnes will bat seventh and play left field and C Tony Wolters will start behind the plate and hit eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Descalso is 13-for-32 (.406) with a double, triple, home run and 11 RBI through 32 at-bats this season and is an excellent source of salary cap relief in DFS. Wolters is worth considering as an inexpensive flier behind the plate but Barnes should be avoided in all fantasy formats today.

Rockies | Nick Hundley resting Wednesday

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 09:59:32 -0700

Colorado Rockies C Nick Hundley is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 15. C Tony Wolters is behind the plate and is batting eighth against New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova.

Fantasy Tip: It'll be Wolter's first start since coming off the 7-day concussion DL yesterday. It's a nice matchup at home, but Wolters is barely over the Mendoza Line this year and has no home runs on the season. He's a desperation low-end catching pick for DFS lineups this afternoon.

Rockies | Chris Rusin to DL, Tony Wolters back

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 14:05:28 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Chris Rusin (shoulder) was placed on the disabled list with a left shoulder strain Tuesday, June 14, while RP Miguel Castro was called up from the minors. C Tony Wolters (concussion) was activated from the 7-day concussion list and C Dustin Garneau was optioned to Class AAA.

Fantasy Tip: Rusin had a 4.12 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in 12 outings (seven starts) for the Rockies. He didn't carry much value outside of NL-only formats and as a daily matchup play away from Coors Field. Wolters returns as the backup to Nick Hundley, but he's more of a defensive-minded catcher and was hitting a mere .217 with no home runs and 11 RBI.
