Reds | Brayan Pena will not start

Sun, 31 May 2015 08:36:44 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 31. C Tucker Barnhart will be the starting catcher for the Reds.

Fantasy Tip: Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has been the regular catcher and is probably receiving a day off. Barnhart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) hit a home run in his last start and is batting .250 in limited playing time this season, but owners on FantasyScore should be able to find a better option.

Reds | Brayan Pena the DH against Tribe

Fri, 22 May 2015 12:01:21 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena is serving as the designated hitter and hitting sixth in the batting order against Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco Friday, May 22. C Tucker Barnhart gets the start behind the dish and is hitting ninth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) who is hitting .322 (29-for-90) with no homers and four RBI, is also excelling from the left side against right-handers, going 23-for-62 (.371) this year. At his price, it's hard not to like him as a sleeper option at catcher. Barnhart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be ignored.

Reds | Brayan Pena resting Wednesday

Wed, 20 May 2015 14:51:03 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 20. C Tucker Barnhart is starting and hitting ninth in the batting order against Kansas City Royals SP Jeremy Guthrie.

Fantasy Tip: Barnhart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) does have two home runs and a .308 average (8-for-26) in a small sample size, but he should remain a low-end catching commodity at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Barnhart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is batting .304 through 23 at-bats this season, with a pair of home runs and three RBIs. He is an intriguing catching option for FantasyScore owners who would rather spend their money at other positions.

Mon, 11 May 2015 10:10:47 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena is taking the day off Monday, May 11. C Tucker Barnhart is starting and hitting eighth in the batting order against Atlanta Braves SP Shelby Miller.

Fantasy Tip: Barnhart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be considered a weak option at FantasyScore tonight going up against Miller, who has pitched extremely well in 2015 while effectively using his sinker to his advantage. Barnhart is hitting .250 (5-for-20) with two home runs and two RBI on the year.
