Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb, Michael Bourn out Sunday

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 09:30:27 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb and OF Michael Bourn are not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Brandon Finnegan Sunday, July 24. INF/OF Chris Owings will hit sixth and play center field, while INF/OF Brandon Drury will bat seventh and play third base. In addition, INF Phil Gosselin will bat second and play second base, OF Rickie Weeks will hit cleanup and start in left field and C Welington Castillo will bat fifth and start behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Arizona is using a lineup exclusively made up of right-handed and switch hitters against the lefty Finnegan this afternoon, which explains the absences of Bourn and Lamb. Although he has struggled recently, Weeks may be worthy of consideration as a value play in DFS because he is hitting fourth and has performed well on the road (.304) and against southpaws (.278) this season.

Diamondbacks | Rickie Weeks batting cleanup

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 15:07:20 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Rickie Weeks is starting in left field and batting fourth against San Diego Padres SP Christian Friedrich Tuesday, July 5. Arizona INF/OF Phil Gosselin is not in the starting lineup Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Weeks owns a .563 slugging percentage against southpaws this season, and he is a potential low-priced flier for daily contests Tuesday. However, his seasonal value is tied to cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. Gosselin's playing time projects to dwindle once Arizona is healthy, and his .263/.315/.347 slash line doesn't exactly move the fantasy needle.

Diamondbacks | Three D-backs resting Wednesday

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 09:23:43 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed, C Welington Castillo and OF Peter O'Brien are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 29. 2B Phil Gosselin is starting at second and hitting second, C Chris Herrmann is catching and batting sixth and 3B Brandon Drury is in left field and hitting seventh against Philadelphia Phillies SP Zach Eflin.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the juicy lineup spot, Gosselin is a light-hitting middle infielder that isn't attractive to those playing DFS today. Drury had a hot start to the year but has faded with limited playing time and is a low-end option near the bottom of the order. Herrmann has been a big surprise this year with a .298/.363/.529 slash line, six home runs and 26 RBI. You could do much worse than Herrmann if you're looking for a cheap value pick at catcher in daily games.

Diamondbacks | Arizona resting two players

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 15:19:35 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo and SS Nick Ahmed are not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Anderson Friday, June 24. 2B Jean Segura will start at shortstop, while 2B Phil Gosselin will start at second base and is batting fourth. C Chris Herrmann will start at catcher and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Gosselin has been producing at the plate recently and has a .353 batting average and one RBI over the last seven days. He could be a sleeper option in some daily fantasy leagues. Herrmann is hitting .276 in June and should be a starting option in two-catcher leagues and some daily leagues.
