Pirates | Gregory Polanco will not start

Sun, 24 May 2015 09:46:07 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 24. OF Jose Tabata will start in right field for the Pirates.

Fantasy Tip: Polanco ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) likely is sitting out since the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Tabata has picked up two hits in his three at-bats since joining the team but may need more plate appearances to be trusted as a starting fantasy option.

Pirates | Gregory Polanco bumped down the order

Fri, 22 May 2015 12:34:28 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco is batting eighth against the New York Mets Friday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: Polanco ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) had a nice surge setting the table of the Pirates, but he has a measly .412 OPS dating back to Tuesday, May 5, so a demotion in the lineup shouldn't be surprising. At his cap hit, he is a risky FantasyScore play, and especially against capable hurler Noah Syndergaard.

Pirates | Gregory Polanco out of Wednesday lineup

Wed, 20 May 2015 12:44:53 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco is out of the starting lineup Wednesday, May 20, against the Minnesota Twins. The move triggered a chain reaction, as 3B Josh Harrison took Polanco's spot in right field, SS Jung-Ho Kang moved over to third and SS Jordy Mercer is playing shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Polanco ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is struggling mightily in the past 10 games with a .161 batting average. Wednesday's benching is also due in part to Twins right-hander Mike Pelfrey being on the mound. Still, Polanco is losing his fantasy value at this high price. Don't be surprised to see this more often if Polanco struggles.

Pirates | Gregory Polanco sticking atop lineup?

Fri, 01 May 2015 14:45:11 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco is batting leadoff for a second consecutive game Friday, May 1.

Fantasy Tip: Josh Harrison ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) had been leading off, but Polanco ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) might be better suited for the gig. Polanco is 15-for-44 (.341 average) with 12 runs and five stolen bases over his last 12 games, after all. Polanco's stolen base and runs scored potential receives a boost leading off, but his RBI takes a minor hit. Overall, consider it a positive for Polanco.

Pirates | Gregory Polanco feeling better

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 16:24:34 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) could be worth a look in GPP tournaments on FantasyScore as he is hitting .353 through 18 plate appearances, with one home run and a stolen base. Rodriguez is a career .227 hitter so regression is on the way, but anyone looking in the range of $200 above the minimum price, will be hard pressed to do better.
