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.

Diamondbacks | Arizona lands Rickie Weeks

Sat, 27 Feb 2016 14:06:42 -0800

Free-agent 2B/OF Rickie Weeks (Mariners) signed a minor-league deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday, Feb. 27. According to a source, Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Weeks will see most of his reps in the outfield this spring and is a candidate for the final roster spot.

Fantasy Tip: Once a top prospect, Weeks has disappointed for most of his big-league career. He's coming off a season in which he batted .167 over 37 games for the Seattle Mariners before getting released in June. He's well off the fantasy radar.

Mariners | Seth Smith, Dustin Ackley sitting

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 15:27:03 -0700

Seattle Mariners OFs Seth Smith and Dustin Ackley are out of the starting lineup against a left-handed pitcher Tuesday, June 2. OF Rickie Weeks is serving as the designated hitter and batting sixth against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia, while OF Justin Ruggiano is starting in left field and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Weeks ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) and Ruggiano ($2,200) aren't playing that much this year and have really nothing to show for. However, they could be very valuable tonight at FantasyScore for the price. Sabathia allows a slash line of .345/.379/.546 to right-handed hitters this year.

Mariners | Seth Smith on the bench

Sat, 23 May 2015 07:53:44 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith is not in the starting lineup Saturday, May 23. OF Rickie Weeks will start in left field and bat leadoff for the Mariners.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) likely is sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Weeks ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is hitting only .185 this season and may not be a great option on FantasyScore.

Mariners | Rickie Weeks draws start

Wed, 20 May 2015 12:19:02 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Rickie Weeks is at designated hitter and leading off Wednesday, May 20, against the Baltimore Orioles.

Fantasy Tip: Weeks ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is trying to keep his average from falling below the Mendoza line. He has a .200 average in the last 30 days, but Weeks is hitting just .125 in the last week. Your best bet is to pass and go for a similar-priced outfielder.

Mariners | Justin Ruggiano, Rickie Weeks draw starts

Fri, 15 May 2015 15:11:28 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Justin Ruggiano is starting in center field and hitting sixth in the batting order against Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz Friday, May 15. OF Rickie Weeks is serving as the designated hitter and hitting eighth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Ruggiano ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) and Weeks ($2,200) are both shots in the dark at FantasyScore if you're trying to save money elsewhere. Ruggiano is hitting only .195 (8-for-41) and Weeks is hitting .192 (10-for-52) this year. Neither hitter inspires any confidence at FantasyScore.

Mariners | Dustin Ackley gets day off

Sat, 02 May 2015 14:53:25 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Dustin Ackley is not in the lineup Saturday, May 2, against the Houston Astros. OF Rickie Weeks will get the start against right-hander Collin McHugh.

Fantasy Tip: Weeks ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is hitting just .195 through 46 plate appearances, but he does have two home runs in the early going. Weeks shouldn't garner much FantasyScore consideration, as he is batting sixth in the order and is a career .243-hitter against righties.

Mariners | Rickie Weeks playing vs. Texas

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 16:16:04 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Rickie Weeks is starting in left field and hitting sixth in batting order against Texas Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo Monday, April 27. OF Dustin Ackley is on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Weeks ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) normally only starts against left-handed pitchers, but Dustin Ackley ($2,200) has been struggling. With that said, Weeks is worth considering at FantasyScore against Gallardo in a hitter-friendly ballpark. Weeks hit .294 (35-for-119) with one of his eight home runs against righties in 2014.

Mariners | Rickie Weeks starting vs. lefty

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 16:30:16 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Rickie Weeks is starting in left field and hitting leadoff against Los Angeles Dodgers left-handed SP David Huff Tuesday, April 14. Both OFs Dustin Ackley and Seth Smith will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Weeks ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is involved in a platoon situation in the outfield for the M's. He's a career .261 hitter against lefties, too, and he clubbed seven of his eight home runs in 2014 off southpaws. That'll make him a cost-effective, sleeper pick at FantasyScore on games that he's playing, and a matchup against Huff Tuesday could work in his favor.

Mariners | Rickie Weeks starting vs. A's

Fri, 10 Apr 2015 14:38:08 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Rickie Weeks is starting in left field and leading off against Oakland Athletics SP Drew Pomeranz Friday, April 10. OFs Dustin Ackley and Seth Smith are both sitting the bench in the matchup against a left-hander.

Fantasy Tip: Weeks ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) provides you a nice chance to save money at other positions in the evening slate of games at FantasyScore. He will regularly play against lefties this year, and he hit seven home runs and had a .504 slugging percentage in 2014 against lefties.
