Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb out of lineup

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 14:11:06 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb (hand) is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, July 26, against the Milwaukee Brewers. OF Brandon Drury will play third base and bat eighth against Brewers SP Matt Garza.

Fantasy Tip: Manager Chip Hale did say Lamb might get some time off to rest his bruised left hand, and it appears he's following up on it. Drury (.264-9-25) has five hits, including three doubles, in the past week and may be worth a low-cost flyer in DFS circles.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb, Michael Bourn out Sunday

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 09:30:27 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb and OF Michael Bourn are not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Brandon Finnegan Sunday, July 24. INF/OF Chris Owings will hit sixth and play center field, while INF/OF Brandon Drury will bat seventh and play third base. In addition, INF Phil Gosselin will bat second and play second base, OF Rickie Weeks will hit cleanup and start in left field and C Welington Castillo will bat fifth and start behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Arizona is using a lineup exclusively made up of right-handed and switch hitters against the lefty Finnegan this afternoon, which explains the absences of Bourn and Lamb. Although he has struggled recently, Weeks may be worthy of consideration as a value play in DFS because he is hitting fourth and has performed well on the road (.304) and against southpaws (.278) this season.

Diamondbacks | Brandon Drury not playing Friday

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 13:41:10 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Brandon Drury is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 15, against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Bud Norris. OF Yasmany Tomas has shifted over to right field, and C Chris Herrmann is in left.

Fantasy Tip: The club would like to get Herrmann some playing time, as he is hitting .291-6-28 with five doubles and four triples. His .511 slugging mark is quite strong. Herrmann merits consideration in DFS leagues, but he does not have a regular spot yet to call his own.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb sitting vs. Friars

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 14:56:56 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 5. INF/OF Brandon Drury is starting at third base and batting seventh against San Diego Padres SP Christian Friedrich Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Lamb is posting monster fantasy numbers with 46 runs, 19 home runs, 59 RBI and a .290/.365/.609 slash line. Start him confidently in all fantasy formats going forward. At this point, Drury is best left to cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, but he could gain value in shallower formats with semi-regular playing time. Drury is also a potential low-priced flier for daily contests Tuesday.

Diamondbacks | Yasmany Tomas sitting vs. Padres

Mon, 04 Jul 2016 14:49:34 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Yasmany Tomas is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 4. INF/OF Brandon Drury is starting in right field and batting seventh against San Diego Padres SP Luis Perdomo Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Tomas is a low-end starter at third base or the outfield in deep mixed leagues and sits with a mediocre 36 runs, 13 home runs, 31 RBI and .259/.308/.462 slash line. Sub him out where you can in seasonal leagues Monday. Drury is a potential flier in daily contests Monday, and he is back on the fantasy radar in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues with the potential to be a viable option in shallower formats with semi-consistent playing time.

Diamondbacks | Chris Herrmann scratched

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 11:37:27 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C/OF Chris Herrmann (hamstring) was scratched from the starting lineup Sunday, July 3, because of a hamstring injury. OF Yasmany Tomas will start in right field, while OF Brandon Drury will start in left field and is batting seventh against San Francisco Giants SP Albert Suarez.

Fantasy Tip: Drury only has five hits in the last eight games and has not recorded an RBI since May 29. Owners should be able to find better options to use in their lineups. Tomas has posted solid numbers this season and should be a starting candidate.

Diamondbacks | Three D-backs resting Wednesday

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 09:23:43 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed, C Welington Castillo and OF Peter O'Brien are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 29. 2B Phil Gosselin is starting at second and hitting second, C Chris Herrmann is catching and batting sixth and 3B Brandon Drury is in left field and hitting seventh against Philadelphia Phillies SP Zach Eflin.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the juicy lineup spot, Gosselin is a light-hitting middle infielder that isn't attractive to those playing DFS today. Drury had a hot start to the year but has faded with limited playing time and is a low-end option near the bottom of the order. Herrmann has been a big surprise this year with a .298/.363/.529 slash line, six home runs and 26 RBI. You could do much worse than Herrmann if you're looking for a cheap value pick at catcher in daily games.

Diamondbacks | Several ARI regulars return Saturday

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 10:47:31 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Yasmany Tomas, C Welington Castillo and SS Nick Ahmed (hip) are back in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa Saturday, June 25. In addition, INF/OF Brandon Drury will play third base and bat seventh, while 3B Jake Lamb receives the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Tomas has six home runs and 12 RBI during the month of June, including three homers in the past week, making him a viable outfield option in all formats. Castillo, Ahmed and Drury have been mediocre at the plate recently and should not be viewed as great fantasy options this afternoon.

Diamondbacks | Socrates Brito lands on DL

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 10:52:24 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Socrates Brito (toe) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday, June 24, with a fractured toe on his right foot. OF Brandon Drury was recalled from Class AAA Reno.

Fantasy Tip: Michael Bourn is likely to see most of the time in center now that Brito is out. Tough break for Brito, too, because he homered last night. Drury will be a low-end DFS flyer when he's in the lineup.

Diamondbacks | Brandon Drury sent down

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 23:14:17 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Brandon Drury was optioned to Class AAA Reno Sunday, June 19.

Fantasy Tip: He had a hot stretch early on this season, but he ultimately fell victim to a number's game. He actually could soon return if David Peralta (back) returns to the disabled list. Drury is worth holding in NL-only leagues.
