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, 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 | 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.

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.

Diamondbacks | Arizona defines OF roles

Wed, 17 Feb 2016 12:27:58 -0800

Arizona Diamondbacks OFs Yasmany Tomas and David Peralta will begin the season in left field and right field, respectively, according to manager Chip Hale.

Fantasy Tip: Tomas spent most of his rookie campaign in right or at third base last season, while Peralta occupied left field. Both appear to have a fair amount of job security at their new positions in 2016, although only Peralta did enough last year to justify a roster spot in most standard leagues to begin this season.

Diamondbacks | Arizona OFs could swap positions

Sat, 06 Feb 2016 11:32:46 -0800

Arizona Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said that he is considering flip-flopping OFs Yasmany Tomas and David Peralta defensively. Tomas would move from right field to left field, while Peralta would shift from left field to right field.

Fantasy Tip: These positional changes should have little or no impact in most seasonal fantasy baseball leagues. The move is being pondered because Tomas struggled defensively in right field after being moved from third base during the middle of last season and Peralta is considered to have the better glove of the two. Both outfielders should be available in the later middle rounds of drafts for mixed leagues.

Diamondbacks | David Peralta undergoing MRI exam

Fri, 02 Oct 2015 15:17:01 -0700

Updating a previous report, Arizona Diamondbacks OF David Peralta (hand) will visit a hand specialist for an MRI exam Friday, Oct. 2, after he injured his hand Thursday, Oct. 1.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Peralta's ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) season is over, and it isn't out of the question to grab a healthy replacement from the waiver wire immediately. It is worth checking back for an official word, if you have the fortune of outfield bench depth on your seasonal roster, though.

Diamondbacks | Two outfielders out for Arizona

Fri, 02 Oct 2015 13:45:28 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OFs David Peralta and Ender Inciarte (shin) are not in the starting lineup Friday, Oct. 2. OFs Yasmany Tomas and Socrates Brito draw into the lineup against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Keuchel ($9,500, 19.0% of cap) is chasing the Cy Young award, and Houston is battling for a playoff berth, so there isn't a lot to like about Tomas ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) or Brito ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) at FantasyScore Friday. At best, they check out as contrarian fliers with Brito being more attractive due to his contest-low cap hit.

Diamondbacks | David Peralta not starting

Sat, 26 Sep 2015 17:12:10 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF David Peralta is out of the lineup against San Diego Padres SP Robbie Erlin Saturday, Sept. 26. OF Yasmany Tomas is starting in left field and hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Tomas ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is hitting just .206 this month, but he could be worth taking a chance on at FantasyScore against Erlin ($3,900, 7.8% of cap), who was shelled in his season debut last week to the tune of seven runs in three innings.

Diamondbacks | David Peralta, Jake Lamb sitting

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 10:18:24 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF David Peralta and 3B Jake Lamb are out of the lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers left-handed SP Clayton Kershaw Thursday, Sept. 24. OF Yasmany Tomas is starting in left field and hitting sixth, while 3B Brandon Drury is at third base and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Both Tomas ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) and Drury ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) are both lackluster daily picks against one of the best pitchers on the planet. Kershaw has allowed six earned runs while walking seven and striking out 36 in his last four starts this month.
