Diamondbacks | Nick Ahmed takes a seat

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 14:46:52 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed is not in the starting lineup Friday, April 29. SS Jean Segura moves to shortstop and 3B Brandon Drury is starting at second base and is hitting seventh against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Chatwood.

Fantasy Tip: Ahmed is a defensive-first shortstop who's hitting just .190 (15-for-79), and he could see more bench time if Drury continues to swing a hot bat. Ahmed is an NL-only depth piece. Drury is hitting a cool .414 (12-for-29) with two homers and four RBI in his last seven games. He's a waiver wire target in deep mixed leagues for depth. Keep rolling with him as a low-priced sleeper in daily formats while he's hot.

Diamondbacks | Yasmany Tomas riding pine vs. Cards

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 13:40:12 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Yasmany Tomas is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 28. 3B/OF Brandon Drury is starting in left field and batting fifth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Tomas has paid off for fantasy owners who targeted him as a breakout candidate entering the season. The sophomore currently sits with 16 runs, five home runs and 12 RBI with a .288/.333/.563 slash line. Similarly, Drury has fared well when given an opportunity with a .298/.317/.526 line through 60 plate appearances. He is a risky start in the tough matchup against Wacha Thursday, though.

Diamondbacks | Chris Owings not starting

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 14:06:21 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks INF/OF Chris Owings is not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright Wednesday, April 27. OF David Peralta will start in center field, while OF Brandon Drury will start in right field and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Drury has been on a hot streak recently with 12 hits and four RBI over his last eight games. He could be a starting candidate in some daily fantasy leagues even though he is facing one of the better pitchers in the National League.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb out again Monday

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 15:29:58 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb is not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals left-handed SP Jaime Garcia Monday, April 25. 3B Brandon Drury starts at third base and is batting second.

Fantasy Tip: Lamb will often be rested against southpaws, so take note of that across all fantasy formats. Drury has nine hits in his last 22 at-bats, including a home run, triple and three RBI in five games. He's a consideration as a daily sleeper, but keep in mind he's facing a pitcher that has a 2.70 ERA in three starts this season.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb, David Peralta out

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 12:46:38 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb and OF David Peralta are not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Sunday, April 24. OF Brandon Drury will start in right field and is batting second, while 2B Phil Gosselin will start in third base and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Drury is batting .400 with one home run and three RBI over the last seven days and is a fine starting option in most leagues. Gosselin has gone hitless in his last three games but is hitting .280 this season and could be a cheaper option in daily fantasy leagues.

Diamondbacks | No Jake Lamb vs. lefty

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 14:40:35 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb is not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates left-handed SP Jon Niese Friday, April 22. 3B Brandon Drury is at the hot corner and is hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Drury is off to a .257 start (9-for-35) with a home run and four RBI. He's produced much better against lefties in his short career to this point, hitting .314 with all three of his home runs, albeit in 35 at-bats. There's potential here in the two-hole against Niese, but keep your daily expectations in check.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb out against lefty

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 15:25:06 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb is not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants left-handed SP Madison Bumgarner Wednesday, April 20. 3B Brandon Drury takes Lamb's place at third base and is hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Lamb has been heating up of late, so as soon as he returns to the starting lineup, likely tomorrow, get him back into your lineups. Drury has a favorable lineup spot but should be avoided against the MadBum.

Diamondbacks | Quintet of Arizona hitters catch a break

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 12:02:26 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt, OF David Peralta, 2B Jean Segura, OF Socrates Brito and C Welington Castillo are not in the lineup on Sunday, April 17, against San Diego Padres SP Robbie Erlin. 2B/OF Rickie Weeks will start in left and bat second, INF Phil Gosselin will play first base and hit third, INF/OF Brandon Drury will move to second base and bat fifth, OF Chris Owings will man center and bat seventh while C Chris Herrmann will set up behind the plate and hit eighth.

Fantasy Tip: For some perspective on how much offensive firepower Arizona is resting on Sunday, Yasmany Tomas moves up from eighth in Saturday's lineup to fourth in today's order. In the wake of last night's 14-inning marathon, the most recommended plays could the pitchers (Erlin and Patrick Corbin), each of whom will face a lineup missing about a good chunk of its regular hitters.

Diamondbacks | Yasmany Tomas, Welington Castillo out

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 15:33:05 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Yasmany Tomas and C Welington Castillo are not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 14. 3B Brandon Drury is starting in left field and hitting fifth, while C Chris Herrmann is doing the catching and is batting seventh against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Ross Stripling.

Fantasy Tip: Both Drury and Herrmann are bottom of the barrel options for daily gamers against Stripling, who carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning of his first start last week.

Diamondbacks | David Peralta out vs. lefty

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 14:51:33 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF David Peralta is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers left-handed SP Alex Wood Wednesday, April 13. 3B Brandon Drury is in right field and is batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Drury doesn't have much major league experience and hit only .214 with two home runs in 56 at-bats in his first taste last year. He's a deep sleeper in daily games Tuesday night.
