Rockies | Chris Rusin to DL, Tony Wolters back

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 14:05:28 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Chris Rusin (shoulder) was placed on the disabled list with a left shoulder strain Tuesday, June 14, while RP Miguel Castro was called up from the minors. C Tony Wolters (concussion) was activated from the 7-day concussion list and C Dustin Garneau was optioned to Class AAA.

Fantasy Tip: Rusin had a 4.12 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in 12 outings (seven starts) for the Rockies. He didn't carry much value outside of NL-only formats and as a daily matchup play away from Coors Field. Wolters returns as the backup to Nick Hundley, but he's more of a defensive-minded catcher and was hitting a mere .217 with no home runs and 11 RBI.

Rockies | Nick Hundley resting Saturday

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 11:16:06 -0700

Colorado Rockies C Nick Hundley is not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres SP Erik Johnson Saturday, June 11. C Dustin Garneau will start behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Garneau is batting .246 with a home run and five RBI in 57 at-bats this year and should be viewed as nothing more than an inexpensive flier in daily fantasy games. Look for Hundley to return to the lineup Sunday, June 12.

Rockies | Charlie Blackmon, Nick Hundley out

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 15:57:54 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon and C Nick Hundley are not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Julio Urias Tuesday, June 7. OF Gerardo Parra will start in center field, while OF Ryan Raburn will start in left field and is batting second. C Dustin Garneau will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Both Raburn and Garneau have struggled at the plate over the last seven days, but Raburn has had success against left-handed pitchers and is a decent option in daily fantasy leagues. Owners can avoid Garneau in all leagues.

Rockies | Nolan Arenado, Tony Wolters not playing

Mon, 30 May 2016 10:34:37 -0700

Colorado Rockies 3B Nolan Arenado and C Tony Wolters are not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Dan Straily Monday, May 30. INF Daniel Descalso will start at third base and is batting seventh, while C Dustin Garneau will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Descalso has received limited playing time this season but has gone 6-for-12 with two RBI. He is probably not the best option for owners should have have some value in daily fantasy leagues. Garneau is hitting only .200 this month and probably should be avoided in most leagues.

Rockies | Several COL regulars resting Saturday

Sat, 28 May 2016 10:25:14 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Gerardo Parra, 2B DJ LeMahieu and C Tony Wolters are not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner Saturday, May 28. OF Ryan Raburn will bat sixth and play left field, INF Cristhian Adames will play second base and bat seventh and C Dustin Garneau will start behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn is 10-for-27 (.370) with three home runs and 10 RBI at home this year but is just 1-for-6 in his career versus Bumgarner, making him a risky play in DFS this afternoon. Adames (2-for-3) and Garneau (1-for-3) have enjoyed modest success against the veteran lefty but shouldn't be viewed as much more than potential sources of salary cap relief.

Rockies | Tony Wolters not in Tuesday lineup

Tue, 24 May 2016 13:19:17 -0700

Colorado Rockies C Tony Wolters is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 24, against the Boston Red Sox. C Dustin Garneau is batting eighth against Red Sox SP David Price.

Fantasy Tip: Wolters is out mainly due to the left vs. left matchup, although Wolters and Garneau are in a platoon situation and neither one catches a majority of games. Garneau doesn't have much fantasy value, so you should look elsewhere for a catcher.
