Twins | Eduardo Nunez not in the lineup

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 08:37:25 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Eduardo Nunez is not in the starting lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Mike Fiers Sunday, June 28. SS Danny Santana will start at shortstop and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Nunez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) probably will return to the lineup in the near future. Santana has gone hitless since returning to the team and should not be a starting option in fantasy leagues.

Twins | Danny Santana batting ninth

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 10:20:31 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Danny Santana is in the starting lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza Saturday, June 27, batting ninth. SS Eduardo Nunez is getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is only batting .161 in 87 at-bats on the road this year and is just 1-for-6 against Garza in his career. He is not a great FantasyScore option this afternoon.

Twins | Byron Buxton to DL

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 07:32:29 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Byron Buxton (thumb) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left thumb sprain Friday, June 26. SS/OF Danny Santana was recalled from Class AAA Rochester.

Fantasy Tip: Santana could platoon with Shane Robinson ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) in center, but neither are good options on FantasyScore right now. Stash Buxton on the DL universally.

Twins | Danny Santana sent down

Mon, 08 Jun 2015 05:46:45 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Danny Santana was optioned to Class AAA Rochester Sunday, June 7, and SS Eduardo Escobar will assume the bulk of the shortstop time. 1B Kennys Vargas will come up in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has done little to pull the trigger on FantasyScore with a .230-3-31 line.

Twins | Kennys Vargas recalled

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 15:28:40 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Kennys Vargas was recalled from Class AAA Rochester on Sunday, June 7. SS Danny Santana was sent to Class AAA in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: The Twins took a lot of people by surprise a few weeks ago when they optioned Vargas, saying he needed to cut down on his strikeouts. The team sacrificed some power, however, as Vargas was a good source of homers. Eduardo Escobar ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will take over for Santana ($3,300, 6.6% of cap), who should be removed from FantasyScore consideration.

Minnesota Twins SS Danny Santana is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 5. SS Eduardo Escobar is starting at shortstop and hitting eighth in the batting order against Milwaukee Brewers SP Kyle Lohse.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($1,600, 3.2% of cap), who is hitting .228 (33-for-145) with three home runs and 20 RBI, remains a low-end shortstop play on FantasyScore.

Minnesota Twins SS Danny Santana is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 4. SS Eduardo Escobar is starting at the 6 and hitting sixth in the batting order against Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a low-end FantasyScore play, even against the inconsistent knuckleballer Wright.

Twins | Danny Santana out again

Mon, 25 May 2015 10:00:20 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Danny Santana is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 25. INF Eduardo Escobar will be the starting shortstop for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is receiving another day off but should return to the lineup soon. Escobar ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has a .279 batting average this month, but owners should be able to find better options to use.

Twins | Danny Santana on the bench

Sun, 24 May 2015 10:36:00 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Danny Santana is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) probably will return to the lineup in the next day or two. Eduardo Escobar ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will be the starting shortstop and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore since he is hitting .298 this month.

Twins | Danny Santana at leadoff spot

Tue, 19 May 2015 12:56:19 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Danny Santana is batting leadoff Tuesday, May 19, against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) had been batting in the bottom third of the order, sometimes as low as ninth, but his bat is warming up again. Santana is hitting .286 with two stolen bases in the past week, so the team wants a leadoff hitter with speed and average. Santana is worth the lower price. It appears the Twins bumped everyone down in the lineup, with leadoff hitter Brian Dozier hitting second and home-run threat Torii Hunter in the fifth spot.
