The latest Todd Cunningham MLB and fantasy baseball news

From -- thru  --


Angels | Three sitting out for Angels

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 10:56:53 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Daniel Nava, 2B Johnny Giavotella and C Jett Bandy are not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Jacob Turner Sunday, July 17. C Geovany Soto will start at catcher and is batting sixth. 2B Gregorio Petit will start at second base and is batting eighth. OF Todd Cunningham will start in left field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Soto has gone 2-for-7 since returning from the disabled list and should be a decent option in two-catcher leagues. Soto has gone 3-for-11 in his limited playing time this month, but owners should be able to find better options. Cunningham is hitting only .067 this season and should be avoided in all leagues.

Angels | Todd Cunningham not in the lineup

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 15:22:04 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Todd Cunningham is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana Tuesday, June 14. 3B Jefry Marte will start in left field and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Marte is hitting .263 with three home runs and five RBI over the last seven days. He should be a decent starting candidate in AL-only leagues and may be a deep sleeper in daily fantasy leagues.

Angels | Rafael Ortega sent down

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 09:16:40 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Rafael Ortega was sent to the minors Saturday, June 11. In corresponding moves, OF Todd Cunningham was recalled and OF Craig Gentry (spine) was moved to the 60-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Left field has been an absolute disaster for the Angels this year, and they haven't gotten any traction out of the position. Cunningham figures to share time with Shane Robinson in left field now, at least until Daniel Nava is healthy. Cunningham is hitless in eight at-bats this year and has a career .206 average with no home runs in three years. You should avoid the Cunningham/Robinson platoon, even in deep AL-only leagues.

Angels | Daniel Nava could take over LF

Wed, 17 Feb 2016 16:20:31 -0800

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Daniel Nava is set up to get the most plate appearances in left field, though he would still likely sit against most left-handed pitchers. OF Craig Gentry, a right-handed hitter, would "start basically every third day" if that's the case, but there will probably be an open competition in spring training for the job. This would also include OFs Ji-Man Choi, Rafael Ortega and Todd Cunningham.

Fantasy Tip: Clearly, Nava and Gentry would have the highest ceiling out of everyone in this competition, especially the former, who slashed a respectable .278/.364/.403 with the Boston Red Sox from 2012-14. Gentry, meanwhile, has pretty much always been a platoon player so that will probably remain the case in Anaheim. Keep an eye on Nava if he prevails with the job.

Braves | Todd Cunningham out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 12:31:04 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Todd Cunningham is not starting Tuesday, June 9, against the San Diego Padres. OF Jonny Gomes is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: With James Shields pitching for the Padres, it appears Cunningham ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is taking a seat. Of course, a .107 batting average at Turner Field doesn't help, either. Gomes ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) carries a .214 batting average in the past week, so he should be left alone on the bench.

Braves | Jonny Gomes hitting seventh

Sat, 06 Jun 2015 13:39:12 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Jonny Gomes will start in left field and bat seventh in the order Saturday, June 6, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. OF Todd Cunningham will come out of the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is hitting a more than respectable .286 against left-handed pitchers this season, and he should be considered against Pirates LHP Jeff Locke. Gomes has walked six times and been struck out on just nine occasions in 37 plate appearances against southpaws this season.

Braves | Cameron Maybin not in lineup

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 15:58:21 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Cameron Maybin is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 1. OF Todd Cunningham is starting in center field and hitting eighth in the batting order against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Archie Bradley.

Fantasy Tip: Cunningham ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) makes for an interesting deep sleeper pick just for the fact that Bradley has given up 14 earned runs in his last three starts after being struck in the face by a liner.

Braves | Jonny Gomes starting in LF

Tue, 26 May 2015 17:22:52 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Jonny Gomes will start in left field and bat fifth in the order Tuesday, May 26, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. OF Todd Cunningham is out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is riding a four-game hit streak in which he has gone 5-for-14. Gomes hasn't driven in any runs, but he has scored three times in that span. FantasyScore owners can consider Gomes for GPP use.

Braves | Jonny Gomes in lineup Monday

Mon, 25 May 2015 13:49:10 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Jonny Gomes is in the starting lineup Monday, May 25, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. OF Todd Cunningham is on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) looks like he is spelling Cunningham for a regular night off. Gomes has a .300 average in the last week, so he may be a decent low-cost option for your daily lineup.

Braves | Todd Cunningham not in lineup Thursday

Thu, 21 May 2015 12:33:02 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Todd Cunningham is out of the starting lineup Thursday, May 21, against the Milwaukee Brewers. OF Jonny Gomes is in left field and hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: This is a normal day off for Cunningham ($1,700, 3.4% of cap). Gomes ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) carries little fantasy value so look elsewhere for outfield help.
