Twins | Eddie Rosario out of the lineup

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 13:35:58 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Eddie Rosario is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 9. OF Shane Robinson is starting in left field and batting ninth against Detroit Tigers SP David Price Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Rosario ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is mired in a 13-for-61 slump with a .561 OPS, so sitting against tough-southpaw Price makes sense. Robinson ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is noting more than a desperation source of cap relief for FantasyScore players. He has a .235/.303/.309 career slash line, after all.

Twins | Torii Hunter takes a seat

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 08:00:05 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Torii Hunter is out of the lineup Wednesday, July 1, with OF Eddie Rosario hitting third.

Fantasy Tip: Rosario ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) presents one of the lesser challenges of three-hole hitters today as he had a .266-2-7 line in June. Sit him against Johnny Cueto today.

Twins | Eduardo Escobar in lineup

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 10:26:33 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Eduardo Escobar is in the starting lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza Saturday, June 27, playing left field and batting seventh. OF Eddie Rosario, who started in left field Friday, June 26, is playing center field and batting second Saturday.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is only batting .174 on the road this season, compared to a .302 mark at home. He is hitless in three career at-bats against Garza and is not a great FantasyScore option.

Twins | Eddie Rosario not playing Wednesday

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 09:41:22 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Eddie Rosario is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 24. OF Shane Peterson is starting in left field and hitting ninth against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson ($1,800, 3.6% of cap), despite a .300 average (15-for-50) is one to avoid in daily games today against Sale, the most overpowering lefty in the American League.

Twins | Eddie Rosario bumped down the order

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 14:09:57 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Eddie Rosario is batting sixth against Chicago White Sox SP John Danks Monday, June 22.

Fantasy Tip: Rosario ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) had batted second the past three games, but the move shouldn't be viewed negatively. He has a .282 batting average and .735 OPS for the seasonand is 7-for-20 over his last five games with four runs and two triples. He is a low-priced flier for FantasyScore players Monday.

Twins | Eddie Rosario playing right field

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 11:50:20 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Eddie Rosario is batting second and playing right field against Texas Rangers SP Nick Martinez Sunday, June 14, with OF Shane Robinson batting seventh and playing left field.

Fantasy Tip: Rosario ($2,700, 5.4% of cap), who normally plays left field, finds himself in right field for the second consecutive game. Regular right fielder Torii Hunter ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is serving the final game of a two-game suspension Sunday. Robinson ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) hasn't done much offensively this season and should be avoided in FantasyScore.

Twins | Eddie Rosario back from paternity leave

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 14:09:58 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Eddie Rosario is batting sixth and playing left field against Texas Rangers SP Wandy Rodriguez Friday, June 12.

Fantasy Tip: Rosario ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has nine runs, three home runs, 12 RBI, four stolen bases and a .287/.300/.425 slash line over 26 games since taking over the majority of playing time in left field. He is an under-the-radar flier for FantasyScore contests Friday. Although, he doesn't have the handedness advantage and could be slightly rusty after his short absence.

Twins | Eddie Rosario likely back Friday

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 05:10:56 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Eddie Rosario is expected back from paternity leave on Friday, June 12.

Fantasy Tip: This explains why Rosario ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has not been in the lineup as of late. Rosario should go back in your lineup when he returns, as he has become the Twins' go-to outfielder in left over the past few weeks.

Twins | Eddie Rosario sitting vs. Royals

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 14:40:51 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Eddie Rosario is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 10. OF Shane Robinson is playing left field and batting seventh against Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Rosario ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is posting nice numbers and is likely flying under the radar. He has nine runs, three home runs, 12 RBI, four stolen bases and a .287/.300/.425 slash line over 26 games since taking over the majority of playing time in left field. Still, he is a fringe option in deep mixed leagues. Robinson ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) should be viewed as a desperation source of cap relief for FantasyScore contests Wednesday.

Twins | Kennys Vargas dropped to 7th

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 16:19:37 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Kennys Vargas has been dropped from fifth to seventh in the batting order Tuesday, June 9, against the Kansas City Royals. OF Eddie Rosario will move up to fifth against RHP Chris Young.

Fantasy Tip: Rosario ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is hitting .290, with three doubles and two home runs against righties this season. Rosario is 6-for-16 during a four-game hitting streak, making him worthy of consideration in GPP tournaments on FantasyScore.
