Rangers | Josh Hamilton sitting against lefty

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 16:50:40 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton is not in the lineup against New York Yankees left-handed SP Chris Capuano Tuesday, July 28. OF Ryan Rua is starting in left field and hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: While Rua ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is typically one to avoid on FantasyScore, he faces a juicy matchup against Capuano tonight and could come in handy as a deep sleeper. Despite a .179 (7-for-39) average against lefties in 2015, Rua has hit two of his three home runs off them this year.
