Diamondbacks | Welington Castillo gets a break

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 12:26:08 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo and SS Nick Ahmed are not in the lineup against the Cincinnati Reds SP Keyvius Sampson on Saturday, July 23. INF/OF Chris Owings will fill in for Ahmed and hit fifth, while C Tuffy Gosewisch will replace Castillo behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo is batting a miserable .158 in July, but this appears to be nothing more than a day off as he is in no danger of losing his job to Gosewisch. Owings will be making his first big-league appearance since June 5 after recovering from a foot injury, but neither Gosewisch nor Owings is worth using outside of NL-only leagues today.

Reds | Jumbo Diaz part of bullpen shuffle

Sat, 21 May 2016 18:16:08 -0700

Cincinnati Reds RP Jumbo Diaz and RP Keyvius Sampson were optioned to Class AAA Louisville Saturday, May 21, and RP Steve Delabar was designated for assignment.

Fantasy Tip: The Reds bullpen has been historically awful, but if you must hunt for saves, Tony Cingrani may be the best bet for now.

Reds | Keyvius Sampson on losing streak

Mon, 28 Sep 2015 04:36:18 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Keyvius Sampson lost his fifth straight start Sunday, Sept. 27, as he allowed five runs on nine hits in 2 2/3 innings in an 8-1 loss to the New York Mets.

Fantasy Tip: Sampson ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) was largely nicked up by a patchwork Mets lineup with several starters getting a rest the day after clinching the National League East. That doesn't bode well for his success the rest of the way in 2015 and casts a shadow on whether he will be a 2016 rotation candidate.

Brewers | Khris Davis out of Game 2 Saturday

Sat, 05 Sep 2015 15:02:37 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Khris Davis is not in the starting lineup for Game 2 of the doubleheader with the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday, Sept. 5. OF Shane Peterson is in left field and batting fifth against Reds SP Keyvius Sampson.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) is merely out of the lineup to get him some rest. Peterson ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is hitless in his three September at-bats and has no fantasy value.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy not in Game 2 lineup

Sat, 05 Sep 2015 14:56:39 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy is out of the starting lineup Saturday, Sept. 5, against the Cincinnati Reds. C Martin Maldonado is starting and batting eighth against Reds SP Keyvius Sampson.

Fantasy Tip: Lucroy ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is simply getting a rest after catching the first game of the double dip. Maldonado ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) may be a cheap source of points thanks to his .667 average in the past week.

Reds | Cincy youngsters to be limited

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 16:31:34 -0700

Cincinnati Reds manager Bryan Price said all of the team's young pitchers, including SPs Anthony DeSclafani, Michael Lorenzen, Raisel Iglesias, David Holmberg, Keyvius Sampson, Robert Stephenson, Brandon Finnegan and John Lamb will have their innings monitored as the season wears on. "The biggest challenge is for a lot of guys who will be considered for call-ups for September or even earlier. We'll have guys who don't have that first major-league season where they pitched in September and had a chance to take their workload from 145 innings or 150 to 175 or 185. We'll have a lot of guys who we'll have to be cautious with their innings."

Fantasy Tip: That's not what owners of any of these pitchers want to hear, but it's a reality that often affects all young pitchers and their fantasy owners as the season winds down. On FantasyScore, none of the Reds young pitchers is ever a slam dunk, and their daily value will likely only continue to plummet if they are kept on pitch counts or innings limits.

Reds | Keyvius Sampson joining the rotation

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 16:11:08 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Keyvius Sampson will join the starting rotation and start against the Pittsburgh Pirates Sunday, Aug. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Through 39 innings with Class AAA Louisville, Sampson had a 5.08 ERA, a 1.59 WHIP and a 7.6 K/9, so fantasy owners should keep their expectations in check. Still, he'll hold value in NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, if he sticks in the rotation. FantasyScore players should take a wait-and-see approach.
