Indians | Want to test versatility of Zach Walters

Tue, 12 Aug 2014 19:32:41 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Zach Walters was used in left field Sunday, Aug. 10, and as the designated hitter Tuesday, Aug. 12. Manager Terry Francona said he wants to test Walters' versatility over the next several weeks. "We need to find out how versatile he can be," Francona said. "With his power and his ability to switch-hit, if he can play short, that's always kind of the key. A guy that can play short and the outfield, that kind of lengthens out your roster."

Nationals | Deal Zach Walters

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 12:14:32 -0700

The Cleveland Indians have received 2B Zach Walters from the Washington Nationals as part of the SS Asdrubal Cabrera deal.

Fantasy Tip: With Mike Aviles the likely replacement at shortstop, Walters or Jose Ramirez will likely be sent to the minors. Aviles gets a huge boost to his fantasy value. He has proven to be a low-end middle infielder in the past. Everyday at-bats make Aviles a viable option in the majority of formats.

Nationals | Ryan Zimmerman has serious injury

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 06:15:57 -0700

Updating previous reports, Washington Nationals 3B Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) has a Grade 3 hamstring strain, according to two baseball sources.

Fantasy Tip: If the reports are confirmed, Zimmerman is likely done for the season. Anthony Rendon has taken over at third base, but second base has been a platoon of Danny Espinosa, Zach Walters and Kevin Frandsen. Espinosa has the only real value, in NL-only leagues, but the team could address second base at the trade deadline.

Nationals | Second base job up for grabs

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 18:15:20 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Washington Nationals will use 2B Danny Espinsoa, 2B Kevin Frandsen and SS Zach Walters at second base while 2B/3B Anthony Rendon serves as the everyday third baseman with 3B Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) sidelined. Manager Matt Williams said he will not just hand the job over to anyone in particular, and that he has decided the three players will battle it out.

Fantasy Tip: Daily fantasy owners will keep a close eye on the lineups an hour or two before game time. You can get good bargains in salary-cap formats, particularly if Frandsen or Walters are given the nod. They have generally had salary cap figures in the lower tier.

Nationals | 2B will be matchup-based

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 14:34:02 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Danny Espinosa and Zach Walters will keep splitting time based on matchups and hot-hand plays, according to manager Matt Williams.

Fantasy Tip: This adds shakiness to Espinosa's value, along with the possibility of the Nats adding a more stable 2B, like Aaron Hill.
