Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb out vs. lefty

Tue, 24 May 2016 11:32:03 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb is not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates left-handed SP Francisco Liriano Tuesday, May 24. 2B Phil Gosselin is starting at third base and is hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Gosselin doesn't do much at the plate (.250-1-4) and isn't a strong candidate to take as a deep sleeper in DFS action despite the nice position in the batting order tonight. Look elsewhere.

Diamondbacks | Yasmany Tomas sitting vs. Yankees

Wed, 18 May 2016 13:26:17 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Yasmany Tomas is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 18. OF Phil Gosselin is starting in left field and batting second against New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Gosselin has gone 14-for-51 to start 2016 and has an unimpressive .663 OPS. He is nothing more than a low-priced flier in daily contests Wednesday. Tomas is having a nice season with 23 runs, five home runs, 14 RBI and a .295/.347/.485 slash line thus far, and he should be owned in the majority of seasonal leagues.

Diamondbacks | Two D-Backs resting Wednesday

Wed, 11 May 2016 09:39:29 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo and SS Nick Ahmed are out of the lineup Wednesday, May 11. 2B Phil Gosselin is hitting sixth, and C Chris Herrmann is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Gosselin doesn't have anything that jumps off the page numbers-wise, but the game is in Coors Field. If you're scratching your head for someone to stream at a basement price, maybe he's your answer against Chad Bettis. Speaking of scratching, Herrmann has been clawing at playing time lately and has taken advantage. He's hitting .357 with a couple homers the last week. Add him to the sneaky flyer bin today.

Diamondbacks | Jean Segura not starting vs. Miami

Wed, 04 May 2016 14:00:41 -0700

Correcting a previous report, Arizona Diamondbacks SS Jean Segura (hip) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 4. 2B Phil Gosselin is starting at second base and batting leadoff against Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Segura hasn't played since Saturday, April 30, and fantasy owners should hope the nagging hip injury doesn't interrupt his excellent start to the season. Through his first 25 games, Segura has 12 runs, four home runs, 15 RBI, four stolen bases and a .333/.362/.523 slash line. Gosselin is a fantasy afterthought facing Fernandez Wednesday.

Diamondbacks | Arizona resting three players

Sun, 01 May 2016 12:44:02 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Jean Segura, 3B Jake Lamb and C Welington Castillo are not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies Chad Bettis Sunday, May 1. 2B Phil Gosselin will start at second base and is batting first in the lineup. 3B Brandon Drury will start at third base and is batting second, while C Chris Herrmann will start at catcher and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Drury is hitting .321 with three runs and five RBI over the last seven days and should be an attractive starting option in most leagues. Gosselin is batting .276 in limited playing time and could be an option for desperate owners in daily fantasy leagues. Herrmann should be avoided by all owners.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb, David Peralta out

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 12:46:38 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb and OF David Peralta are not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Sunday, April 24. OF Brandon Drury will start in right field and is batting second, while 2B Phil Gosselin will start in third base and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Drury is batting .400 with one home run and three RBI over the last seven days and is a fine starting option in most leagues. Gosselin has gone hitless in his last three games but is hitting .280 this season and could be a cheaper option in daily fantasy leagues.

Diamondbacks | Two D-Backs sitting Thursday

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 09:40:34 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed and C Welington Castillo are out of the lineup Thursday, April 21, with 2B Phil Gosselin hitting sixth and C Chris Herrmann hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Gosselin is 5-for-9 (.556) with a homer the last seven days. He's a low-end flyer worth using against Johnny Cueto. Herrmann is just 1-for-17 (.059) on the season and isn't worth consideration.

Diamondbacks | Quintet of Arizona hitters catch a break

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 12:02:26 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt, OF David Peralta, 2B Jean Segura, OF Socrates Brito and C Welington Castillo are not in the lineup on Sunday, April 17, against San Diego Padres SP Robbie Erlin. 2B/OF Rickie Weeks will start in left and bat second, INF Phil Gosselin will play first base and hit third, INF/OF Brandon Drury will move to second base and bat fifth, OF Chris Owings will man center and bat seventh while C Chris Herrmann will set up behind the plate and hit eighth.

Fantasy Tip: For some perspective on how much offensive firepower Arizona is resting on Sunday, Yasmany Tomas moves up from eighth in Saturday's lineup to fourth in today's order. In the wake of last night's 14-inning marathon, the most recommended plays could the pitchers (Erlin and Patrick Corbin), each of whom will face a lineup missing about a good chunk of its regular hitters.

Diamondbacks | Pack of Arizona hitters take a seat

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 12:27:44 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Jean Segura, C Welington Castillo, LF Yasmany Tomas and SS Nick Ahmed are out of the lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta on Sunday, April 10. OF Socrates Brito is batting leadoff in place of Segura while 2B Phil Gosselin is at the keystone and hitting second. 3B/OF Brandon Drury is in left and batting fifth while INF/OF Chris Owings is replacing Segura in the field and hitting seventh. C Chris Hermann is behind the plate and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Arrieta was already a strong play Sunday and facing a number of Arizona bench players probably isn't going to hurt his cause. Conversely, it's hard to recommend starting any Diamondbacks outside of Paul Goldschmidt and maybe David Peralta in year-long or DFS formats in this contest.

Diamondbacks | Phil Gosselin goes deep

Mon, 14 Mar 2016 19:33:02 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Phil Gosselin socked a two-run home run Monday, March 14, in Cactus League spring play against the Seattle Mariners.

Fantasy Tip: Gosselin is battling Brandon Drury for at-bats and playing time behind Jake Lamb and Chris Owings at third base and second base. He has a chance to have some value in deeper NL-only fantasy leagues, but he needs Owings or Lamb to have a long-term injury before he is worth using in other formats.
