Reds | Brayan Pena out Tuesday

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 10:56:39 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena is out of the lineup for the second straight day Tuesday, June 30. C Tucker Barnhart receives another start and is hitting seventh against Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes.

Fantasy Tip: Barnhart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) recorded four hits last night and is batting .308 (24-for-78) in a backup role this year. The switch-hitting catcher has excelled against righties in 2015 (.344/.386/.547) but remains a low-end sleeper play that'll give you cap relief.

Reds | Tucker Barnhart starting vs. Twins

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 12:16:28 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Tucker Barnhart is starting behind the plate and batting seventh against Minnesota Twins SP Mike Pelfrey Monday, June 29. C Brayan Pena is not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Barnhart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is 8-for-15 over his last four games with a 1.296 OPS. It is a small sample size, but he stands out as a solid upside source of cap relief for FantasyScore players Monday. Pena ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has only started three of the past seven games, and the catching situation is worth monitoring for owners in cavernous mixed, NL-only and two-catcher formats.
