Diamondbacks | No Yasmany Tomas Friday

Fri, 06 May 2016 15:12:48 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Yasmany Tomas is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 6. 3B Brandon Drury is starting in left field and is hitting sixth against Atlanta Braves SP Aaron Blair.

Fantasy Tip: Despite an 0-for-4 last night, Drury is slashing .358/.382/.679 with four home runs and seven RBI in his last 13 games since April 20 and is a fine fantasy consideration for daily leagues tonight. The hot streak has earned Drury regular playing time and has made him valuable in most mixed leagues, as well.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb out against the lefty

Thu, 05 May 2016 12:31:44 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb is out of the starting lineup against Miami Marlins left-handed SP Adam Conley Thursday, May 5. 3B Brandon Drury is starting at third base and is in the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Lamb is certainly in a platoon at third base with Drury. Drury has been Arizona's hottest hitter of late and certainly deserves a long look in daily formats tonight. As long as he's producing and playing regularly, Drury is one to add off the waiver wire in mixed leagues, too, if he's available.

Diamondbacks | Welington Castillo, Chris Owings sitting

Wed, 04 May 2016 12:33:23 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo and SS/OF Chris Owings are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 4. 3B Brandon Drury is starting in right field and batting fifth, while C Chris Herrmann is catching and hitting seventh against Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez. OF David Peralta moves over to center field.

Fantasy Tip: The matchup is tough for the D-backs, but with Drury so hot (18-for-46, four home runs in last 11 games), it might be worth keeping him in your starting lineups in traditional leagues. Herrmann has six hits in 33 at-bats (.182) and should be avoided everywhere.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb, David Peralta out vs. lefty

Tue, 03 May 2016 13:32:50 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb and OF David Peralta are not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins left-handed SP Justin Nicolino Tuesday, May 3. 3B Brandon Drury is at the hot corner and hitting second, while OF Rickie Weeks is starting in left field and batting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: If you're choosing one of the these players in daily contests, it best be Drury, who has gone 9-for-28 (.321) with three home runs and five RBI in seven straight games. His hot streak has been bad news for Lamb and has basically relegated him to more of a bench role. Drury should be attracting the attention of those in mixed leagues, as well. Weeks, despite hitting cleanup, is more of a low-end daily commodity.

Diamondbacks | Arizona resting three players

Sun, 01 May 2016 12:44:02 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Jean Segura, 3B Jake Lamb and C Welington Castillo are not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies Chad Bettis Sunday, May 1. 2B Phil Gosselin will start at second base and is batting first in the lineup. 3B Brandon Drury will start at third base and is batting second, while C Chris Herrmann will start at catcher and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Drury is hitting .321 with three runs and five RBI over the last seven days and should be an attractive starting option in most leagues. Gosselin is batting .276 in limited playing time and could be an option for desperate owners in daily fantasy leagues. Herrmann should be avoided by all owners.

Diamondbacks | Brandon Drury launches fourth home run

Sun, 01 May 2016 05:08:11 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B/OF Brandon Drury went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run during the Diamondbacks' 5-2 loss to the Colorado Rockies Saturday, April 30.

Fantasy Tip: Drury is riding a hot stretch over his past nine games with six runs, four doubles, three home runs and six RBI. As long as he is hitting, his bat will keep him in the lineup, which makes Drury a potential add in deep mixed leagues. At this point, he should be owned in all NL-only leagues, too.

Diamondbacks | Brandon Drury draws a start

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 13:44:29 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Brandon Drury is hitting second Saturday, April 30, with 3B Jake Lamb out against a left-hander.

Fantasy Tip: Drury has been solid with a .297-3-8 line thus far. He's a decent streamer against Chris Rusin.

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.
