Twins | Minnesota resting three players

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 09:51:24 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Joe Mauer, 3B Miguel Sano and CB Byron Buxton are not in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Josh Tomlin Sunday, July 17. SS Eduardo Nunez will start at third base, while OF Robbie Grossman will serve as the designated hitter. 1B Kennys Vargas will start at first base and is batting third. OF Eddie Rosario will start in left field and is batting sixth, while OF Danny Santana will start in center field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Vargas is hitting .400 with three home runs and four RBI since being recalled from the minor leagues and should be a decent option in daily fantasy leagues. Rosario has 12 hits in his last five games and should be used in starting lineups. Santana has at least one hit in five of his last seven games, but owners probably will be able to find better options.

Twins | Joe Mauer not in Friday lineup

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 13:56:35 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Joe Mauer is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 8, against the Texas Rangers. 1B Kennys Vargas is starting and batting sixth against Rangers SP Cole Hamels.

Fantasy Tip: Despite seven hits in his last three games, Mauer earns a bench spot with a lefty in the lineup Friday. Vargas has two homers and a .375 average in his first three games since being recalled from Class AAA Rochester. As long as he is pretty hot with the bat, consider him for daily starts in DFS formats.

Twins | Joe Mauer, Eduardo Escobar out

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 13:18:21 -0700

Minnesota Twins C Joe Mauer and SS Eduardo Escobar (hamstring) are not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Sean Manaea Tuesday, July 5. 1B Kennys Vargas will start at first base and is batting fifth. SS Eduardo Nunez will start at shortstop, while OF Robbie Grossman will serve as the designated hitter. OF Danny Santana will start in left field and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Vargas went hitless in his only other start of the season, so owners outside of AL-only leagues should avoid him. Santana is hitting only .188 over the last seven days and is not a strong fantasy option.

Twins | Joe Mauer, Byron Buxton out

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 10:19:18 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Joe Mauer and OF Byron Buxton are not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels Sunday, July 3. 3B Trevor Plouffe will start at first base, while OF Robbie Grossman will serve as the designated hitter. OF Eddie Rosario will start in left field and is batting eighth. OF Danny Santana will start in center field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Rosario had a .200 batting average with three home runs and nine RBI when he was with the team earlier in the season. He probably should be avoided by most owners at this point. Santana is hitting .083 with one home run over the last seven days and should not be used by owners.

Twins | Joe Mauer out Thursday

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 08:44:41 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Joe Mauer is out of the lineup Thursday, June 30, with OF Robbie Grossman hitting third.

Fantasy Tip: It's quite a leap for Grossman to go from a guy that didn't start the season in the majors to hit third for the Twins today. The numbers don't support it, though. He's hitting .136 the last seven days and .231 this month. He is facing lefty Carlos Rodon, and he has hit .362 against lefties in 47 at-bats this year. However, he needs to be at a basement price to make the risk feasible.

Twins | Byung Ho Park not in the lineup

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 09:32:23 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Byung Ho Park is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi Sunday, June 19. 1B Joe Mauer will serve as the designated hitter. 3B Trevor Plouffe will start at first base, while SS Eduardo Nunez will start at third base. SS Eduardo Escobar will start at shortstop and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar is hitting .412 with two home runs and four RBI over the last seven days and is a sleeper option in daily fantasy leagues. Mauer and Nunez should be starters in most mixed leagues, while Plouffe should be a candidate in deeper leagues.

Twins | Joe Mauer out vs. lefty

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 14:27:55 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Joe Mauer is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees left-handed SP CC Sabathia Thursday, June 16. As a result, SS Eduardo Escobar draws into the lineup at shortstop and is hitting sixth. SS Eduardo Nunez moves to third base and 3B Trevor Plouffe is serving as the designated hitter. Also, 2B Brian Dozier is hitting third in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Mauer is in the midst of a resurgent season thanks mainly to increased plate patience. He's squaring up more balls at the plate and has become an asset in most seasonal leagues with a .285/.386/.417 slash line and seven homers and 26 RBI. Escobar has lost considerable playing time to Nunez this year and has very little fantasy value remaining. Dozier has had a down year but is more of a contrarian play this evening in the three-hole in daily setups.
