Phillies | Jeff Francoeur batting fifth in Game 2

Sat, 03 Oct 2015 17:22:03 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Jeff Francoeur is playing right field and batting fifth against Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino in Game 2 of a doubleheader Saturday, Oct. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Francouer ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is hitting .308 at home this year, so he could be worth a flier as a source of cap relief at FantasyScore.

Sat, 03 Oct 2015 17:14:47 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco is starting at third base and batting third against Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino in Game 2 of a doubleheader Saturday, Oct. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Franco will be making his first start since Aug. 11, and considering he is hitting just .206 against lefties this year, it is best to avoid him.

Phillies | Freddy Galvis out for Game 2

Sat, 03 Oct 2015 17:10:36 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SS Freddy Galvis is not in the lineup against Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino for Game 2 of a doubleheader Saturday, Oct. 3. SS Chase d'Arnaud is starting and shortstop and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: In 11 games, d'Arnaud ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting just .214, and he isn't worth taking a chance on at FantasyScore.

Braves | Hector Olivera hitting sixth in debut

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 13:33:51 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Hector Olivera makes his major league debut Tuesday, Sept. 1, against the Miami Marlins and SP Justin Nicolino.

Fantasy Tip: Olivera was a highly touted prospect signed by the Los Angeles Dodgers and then dealt to the Braves. Wait and see how he does in his first game or two before starting to consider him for FantasyScore purposes.

Braves | Christian Bethancourt not starting Tuesday

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 12:29:09 -0700

Atlanta Braves C Christian Bethancourt is not starting Tuesday, Sept. 1, against the Miami Marlins. C A.J. Pierzynski is in Bethancourt's place, and he is batting fifth against Marlins SP Justin Nicolino.

Fantasy Tip: Bethancourt ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is out for the second time in three days, likely because of the presence of the lefty pitcher for Miami. He is also hitting .091 against the Marlins. Pierzynski ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is hitting .222 in the last week, so that light bat carries little FantasyScore value.

Braves | Andrelton Simmons out Tuesday

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 12:20:45 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons (ankle) is out Tuesday, Sept. 1, due to right ankle inflammation. SS Daniel Castro was recalled from Class AAA to start tonight's game, and he is hitting eighth against Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino.

Fantasy Tip: Simmons ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) should be monitored closely for your FantasyScore preparations. The fact Castro was recalled doesn't necessarily mean anything bad for Simmons, because Tuesday was the day to expand rosters from 25 to 40 players.

Marlins | Justin Nicolino suffers loss

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 19:00:24 -0700

Marlins | Jose Fernandez to DL

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 12:37:35 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez (bicep) was placed on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained bicep tendon. SP Justin Nicolino was recalled from Class AAA New Orleans to take his place, and Nicolino will start Tuesday, Aug. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Fernandez ($9,600, 19.2% of cap) should be immediately stashed away for keeper and dynasty leagues, as he may even be back before the season. Nicolino went 1-1 during his time with the Marlins in June, so watch how he does before you use him in your league. He is one of the Marlins' top prospects.
