Wed, 06 Jul 2016 10:18:12 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Peter O'Brien was sent down to Class AAA Reno to work on his plate discipline, according to manager Chip Hale. O'Brien struck out 24 times and hit .123 in his 56 at-bats with the Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Tip: O'Brien could be the first one up if an outfielder suffers another injury. He's an NL-only stash for now due to his power potential.

Diamondbacks | Peter O'Brien optioned to Reno

Mon, 04 Jul 2016 13:43:19 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Peter O'Brien was optioned to Class AAA Reno Monday, July 4. In a corresponding move, SS Nick Ahmed was reinstated from the paternity list.

Fantasy Tip: O'Brien is a potential bench stash in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues because of his power upside, but he went just 7-for-57 during this recent stint in the majors. View Ahmed as a low-end option in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues.

Diamondbacks | Peter O'Brien whiffing at big rate

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 22:22:25 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Peter O'Brien has struck out 25 times in 57 at-bats since coming up from Class AAA Reno.

Fantasy Tip: O'Brien has largely been relegated to pinch-hitting duties with a .123 batting average. A .333 slugging mark is about the only thing keeping him from going back to Reno, but O'Brien clearly needs some more seasoning in the minors. Don't bother picking him up in fantasy formats unless your league is super-deep enough to stash minor leaguers and prospects.

Diamondbacks | Chris Herrmann starting vs. Giants

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 15:29:58 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C/OF Chris Herrmann is starting in right field and batting sixth against San Francisco Giants SP Johnny Cueto Friday, July 1. OF Peter O'Brien is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Herrmann is a viable option in deep mixed, two-catcher and NL-only leagues because of his eligibility behind the plate and .286/.350/.508 slash line. The only knock is his lack of playing time (just 141 plate appearances). It's also worth noting, he's a weak daily option against Cueto Friday. While O'Brien has four home runs through his first 18 games this season, he's also 7-for-54, which makes him a tough start in the majority of seasonal leagues.

Diamondbacks | Three D-backs resting Wednesday

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 09:23:43 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed, C Welington Castillo and OF Peter O'Brien are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 29. 2B Phil Gosselin is starting at second and hitting second, C Chris Herrmann is catching and batting sixth and 3B Brandon Drury is in left field and hitting seventh against Philadelphia Phillies SP Zach Eflin.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the juicy lineup spot, Gosselin is a light-hitting middle infielder that isn't attractive to those playing DFS today. Drury had a hot start to the year but has faded with limited playing time and is a low-end option near the bottom of the order. Herrmann has been a big surprise this year with a .298/.363/.529 slash line, six home runs and 26 RBI. You could do much worse than Herrmann if you're looking for a cheap value pick at catcher in daily games.

Diamondbacks | Peter O'Brien out again

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 16:00:20 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Peter O'Brien is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 27. OF Rickie Weeks is starting in left field again and is batting fifth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Vincent Velasquez.

Fantasy Tip: O'Brien and Weeks are splitting time in left field. O'Brien has much more fantasy upside because of his elite power. Weeks is hitting .258 (24-for-93) with four home runs and 10 RBI, and he's a low-end DFS pick when he's starting for the Snakes.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb back in lineup

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 12:19:18 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb is in the lineup Sunday, June 26, against Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis and will bat fourth. OF Rickie Weeks will start in place of Peter O'Brien in left and hit fifth, while C Chris Herrmann will be behind the plate in place of C Welington Castillo and bat sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Lamb plays primarily against right-handers and has been mashing them for the better part of the season, hitting .310 with 12 homers and 39 RBI in 197 at-bats, although he is only 1-for-12 in his career against Bettis. Weeks is 2-for-2 versus the Rockies' right-hander, but he's a risky bet in any format. Herrmann has been exceptional whenever he's received a chance to play this year and makes for a solid DFS play today as well as a great fill-in for any starting fantasy catcher around the league that is getting the day off.

Diamondbacks | Peter O'Brien homers

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 04:56:32 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Peter O'Brien hit his fourth homer of the season Tuesday, June 21, in a 4-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: The sad thing is four of O'Brien's five hits this year have been homers, but O'Brien has a .152 average and 13 strikeouts in 33 at-bats. This spells trouble. Avoid O'Brien until he becomes more consistent, because numbers like this will send a hitter back to the minors.

Diamondbacks | Peter O'Brien homers twice

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 20:09:15 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Peter O'Brien went 2-for-5 with two home runs, four RBI and two runs scored in a 10-2 win over the Philadelphia Phillies Friday, June 17.

Fantasy Tip: O'Brien has three hits in 20 at-bats since being called up, all of them homers. His power is his biggest fantasy asset, and he is worth a look in deeper mixed leagues if you need some extra pop.
