Diamondbacks | Nick Ahmed hitting second

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 13:07:14 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed is hitting second in the order Saturday, Aug. 1, against the Houston Astros and LHP Dallas Keuchel. OF A.J. Pollock (knee) is out of the lineup, so SS Cliff Pennington will start in left field and hit ninth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Ahmed ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is hitting .338 against left-handed pitching this season with eight walks and eight strikeouts. Ahmed is just 2-for-his-last-28, and he can be avoided against one of the league's top lefties. Pennington ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has three singles in 14 plate appearances against lefties this season, but he'll have next to no upside while at the bottom of the lineup.

Diamondbacks | Nick Ahmed sitting vs. Marlins

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 15:53:37 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 22. SS Cliff Pennington is playing shortstop and batting eighth against Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Ahmed ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. Pennington ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief by FantasyScore players, especially facing Fernandez ($8,800, 17.6% of cap)

Diamondbacks | Nick Ahmed leading off

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 07:51:15 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed is leading off against New York Mets SP Jon Niese Sunday, July 12, and OF David Peralta is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Ahmed ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) typically leads off against southpaws, and Peralta ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) shifts down the lineup. FantasyScore players should likely pass on Peralta (.733 OPS against southpaws) as an outfield option, but Ahmed is an intriguing shortstop play. Ahmed has a .965 OPS against lefties and receive the value boost atop the lineup.

Diamondbacks | Nick Ahmed will not start

Sat, 11 Jul 2015 09:18:30 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed is not in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Matt Harvey Saturday, July 11. SS Cliff Pennington will start at shortstop and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Ahmed ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) probably will return to the lineup in the near future. Pennington ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) does have six hits and four RBI in his last eight games but is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 22:46:46 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Ahmed ($3,700; or 7.4% or cap) has hit safely in eight straight games, going 13-for-34 (.382) with seven runs scored and five RBIs. At this price level he is a must-play in FantasyScore while he continues to hit.

Diamondbacks | Nick Ahmed leading off vs. lefty

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 14:45:34 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed is hitting leadoff against Texas Rangers left-handed SP Matt Harrison Wednesday, July 8. OF David Peralta drops down to sixth in the order against the southpaw.

Fantasy Tip: Ahmed ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has picked it up with the stick of late and has a slash line of .362/.448/.500 with two of his six home runs against left-handers in 58 at-bats this year. Harrison is making his first start of the season, so Ahmed is very attractive to daily gamers tonight while hitting leadoff. Peralta ($3,400, 6.8% of cap), who is hitting only .256 (11-for-43) with no homers against lefties, is a weaker play at FantasyScore tonight.

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 21:55:25 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed went 1-for-4 with a run scored Tuesday, July 7, against the Texas Rangers to push his hitting streak to seven games.

Fantasy Tip: Ahmed ($3,700; or 7.4% of cap) is 11-for-30 (.367) in on a serious roll, posting six runs scored with four RBIs during his impressive run. He is a great FantasyScore option at this price level.

Diamondbacks | Nick Ahmed sitting vs. Rockies

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 15:38:03 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 3. SS Cliff Pennington is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against Colorado Rockies SP Kyle Kendrick Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Pennington ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) draws a plus-matchup against Kendrick. Pennington still should be viewed as a desperation source of cap relief, though. After all, he has a .216/.314/.239 slash line.
