Diamondbacks | Nick Ahmed leading off Wednesday

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 16:15:43 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed is hitting leadoff against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson Wednesday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Ahmed ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) homered in the last two nights and has six home runs and 20 RBI to go along with a .234 average (50-for-214). He's normally not likely to be on a daily gamer's radar, but he deserves attention while he's hot and hitting atop the lineup, and he is hitting .333 (16-for-48) with two of his home runs against southpaws this year.

Nationals | Washington interested in infielders

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 13:24:59 -0700

The Washington Nationals are interested in the Arizona Diamondbacks' middle infield depth, which includes SSs Chris Owings and Cliff Pennington and 2Bs Aaron Hill and Nick Ahmed, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: None of these players carry a ton of fantasy value to begin with, but a move to a better lineup with the Nats could boost their value at least a little bit if they fall into consistent playing time. That's unlikely to happen in D.C., though, as they'd likely be in more of a utility role.

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 12:23:57 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed is back in the starting lineup against the San Diego Padres Sunday, June 21, batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Over the past week, Ahmed ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has six hits in 16 at-bats with two RBIs, making him one of the better low-cost options in FantasyScore for owners who need salary cap relief.

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 12:30:22 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Pennington ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is only batting .164 this season and is not worthy of FantasyScore consideration.

Diamondbacks | Aaron Hill starting Saturday

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 13:20:27 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Aaron Hill is starting at second base and hitting sixth in the order Saturday, June 13, against the San Francisco Giants and RHP Ryan Vogelsong. 2B Nick Ahmed shifts over to shortstop, with SS Chris Owings coming out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Hill ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) went 2-for-3 with a walk Friday. Hill is hitting just .231 against right-handed pitching, but he has hit all three of his home runs against righties. FantasyScore owners should be avoiding Hill until he starts stringing some quality games together.

Fantasy Tip: Pennington ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) won't help your FantasyScore lineup at all. Avoid him.

Diamondbacks | Nick Ahmed sitting out

Sun, 31 May 2015 10:32:59 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 31. INF Cliff Pennington will take his place in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Ahmed ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Pennington ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has only three hits in his last 14 games and probably should not be a starting option on FantasyScore.

Braves | Jim Johnson notches 13th hold

Thu, 28 May 2015 17:56:13 -0700

Atlanta Braves RP Jim Johnson picked up his 13th hold of the season Wednesday, May 27. Johnson is one shy of the MLB lead, held by San Francisco Giants RP Sergio Romo.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is a must own in leagues with the holds category. Johnson is also worth grabbing in deeper standard leagues, as he'll be in line for the Braves' closer job if anything were to happen to Jason Grilli.
