Twins | Several MIN regulars resting Sunday

Sun, 15 May 2016 08:18:05 -0700

Minnesota Twins 2B Brian Dozier, 3B Trevor Plouffe and C Kurt Suzuki are not in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer Sunday, May 15. 3B/OF Miguel Sano will play the hot corner and bat third, INF Jorge Polanco will bat sixth and play second base and C Juan Centeno will start behind the plate and bat eighth. In addition, OF Oswaldo Arcia will bat fifth and play right field.

Fantasy Tip: Sano is making his fifth start at third base this season but he has struggled over the last two weeks, batting just .179 with two home runs and four RBI in 39 at-bats. Centeno is making his second consecutive start and is worth considering as a value play in DFS after going 5-for-11 with a home run through his first four games this season. Polanco should be viewed exclusively as a source of desperation cap relief in daily fantasy games.

Twins | Oswaldo Arcia, Kurt Suzuki resting Saturday

Sat, 14 May 2016 11:13:58 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Oswaldo Arcia and C Kurt Suzuki are out of the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber Saturday, May 14. OF Eddie Rosario will play left field and bat seventh, while C Juan Centeno will start behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Rosario is just 4-for-21 over the past two weeks and is batting .198 for the season, so he is not a recommended fantasy option this afternoon. Centeno is 3-for-8 at the plate and should be viewed as a means of desperation cap relief in daily contests.

Twins | Three starters sitting for Twins

Sun, 08 May 2016 10:21:11 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Danny Santana, 1B Joe Mauer and C Kurt Suzuki is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Sunday, May 8. OF Darin Mastroianni will start in center field and is batting seventh in the lineup. C Juan Centeno will start at catcher and is batting eighth, while OF Eddie Rosario will start in left field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Rosario is the only one of the three that has had some success at the plate this season but he is hitting only .193. Owners probably should look for better options to use and avoid Rosario, Mastroianni and Centeno.

Brewers | Juan Centeno starting at C

Milwaukee Brewers C Juan Centeno is starting behind the plate Saturday, May 17, against the New York Mets and RHP Noah Syndergaard. Centeno will hit seventh in the batting order. C Martin Maldonado will have the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Centeno ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitless through 10 plate appearances this season and is a career .191-hitter against righties. Even against an unproven Syndergaard, FantasyScore owners can do far better than Centeno.
