Diamondbacks | Yasmany Tomas out Saturday

Sat, 28 May 2016 16:26:28 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Yasmany Tomas is not starting Saturday, May 28, against the San Diego Padres. Tomas' replacement is OF Michael Bourn, who will bat second against Padres SP Cesar Vargas. In addition, OF Brandon Drury has been moved to left field, OF Chris Owings will play center and Bourn is in right.

Fantasy Tip: Tomas is in a slump at the plate (3-for-20), so maybe this night of rest will do him some good. Bourn's average with Arizona is .125 at home, but his other numbers are pretty strong so he might be worth the flyer in daily leagues. Bourn is also hitting second, so he will have more chances to drive in runs.

Diamondbacks | Brandon Drury starting at second

Wed, 25 May 2016 13:50:36 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B/OF Brandon Drury is starting at second base and batting fifth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke Wednesday May 25. 2B Jean Segura (head) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Drury is receiving enough at-bats to be a viable option in the majority of seasonal leagues, and he has a .300/.329/.520 slash line for the campaign. He is a viable option in daily contests Wednesday, too. Segura was not diagnosed with a concussion after being hit in the head with a pitch during the game Tuesday, May 24, so he should return to the lineup sooner than later.

Diamondbacks | Brandon Drury not playing

Tue, 17 May 2016 16:29:14 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B/OF Brandon Drury is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 17. C Chris Herrmann is starting in right field and is hitting second against New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda.

Fantasy Tip: Herrmann draws a nice lineup position against a struggling pitcher in Pineda. Herrmann does have four home runs and 16 RBI in backup catching duties, but he's more of a wildcard in daily setups tonight. However, you could do worse as a low-end catcher that'll help you save valuable cash.

Diamondbacks | Brandon Drury enjoys first four-hit day

Sun, 15 May 2016 16:39:03 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B/OF Brandon Drury singled in each of his four at-bats against the San Francisco Giants on Sunday, May 15, accounting for half of his team's hits in a 2-1 loss.

Fantasy Tip: It takes some pretty poor luck to not score or drive in a run during a 4-for-4 effort, although it didn't help matters that Drury batted in the eighth spot today. With David Peralta going on the disabled list with a wrist injury on Sunday, the 23-year-old and his .890 OPS should remain a fixture in the Arizona lineup for at least the next week - hopefully higher in the order. Drury will get his shot at an encore at home Monday against the strike-throwing Michael Pineda and the New York Yankees.

Diamondbacks | David Peralta still out Saturday

Sat, 14 May 2016 15:56:42 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF David Peralta (wrist) remains out Saturday, May 14, with OF Brandon Drury hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Drury has leveled off a little bit, but he's still hitting .290 the last week. He has just one RBI during the stretch. He remains a solid option against a struggling Jake Peavy.

Diamondbacks | David Peralta out yet again

Wed, 11 May 2016 09:40:28 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF David Peralta (wrist) is out of the lineup Wednesday, May 11, with OF Brandon Drury hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta is slated to see a specialist, and he has missed enough time the team could just DL him with a backdate. Drury has raked in the meantime with a .303-6-13 line, and he's an excellent option against Chad Bettis in Coors Field today.

Diamondbacks | David Peralta remains sidelined

Tue, 10 May 2016 14:04:31 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF David Peralta (forearm) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, May 10. 3B Brandon Drury is starting in right field and is batting second against Colorado Rockies SP Chris Rusin.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta has been out since Sunday, but he could return any day now, so keep tabs on his progress. Drury is more than capable as a replacement, as he's hitting .306 with two home runs in May. Ride the tide and keep using him in all fantasy formats as long as he continues to produce and start regularly.

Diamondbacks | Yasmany Tomas, David Peralta out injured

Sun, 08 May 2016 09:12:02 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Yasmany Tomas (neck) and OF David Peralta (forearm) are not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz Sunday, May 8. 2B Rickie Weeks will start in left field and is batting fourth, while 3B Brandon Drury will start in right field and is batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Weeks has been used mostly as a pinch hitter so far this season but does have two hits in his last three games. He probably can be avoided in most leagues. Drury is hitting .370 with two home runs and three RBI over the last seven days and should be a starting candidate in all leagues.
