Diamondbacks | Socrates Brito could play center field

Sat, 02 Apr 2016 11:11:13 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Socrates Brito could serve as the team's center fielder on opening day, as a result of the injury to OF A.J. Pollock (elbow). The team may also consider using non-roster invitee Jason Bourgeois at the position.

Fantasy Tip: Brito hit .303 with a home run, seven RBIs and three stolen bases in 66 at-bats during spring training. He's worth selecting in the later rounds of drafts for NL-only fantasy leagues. Bourgeois can remain undrafted in all formats.

Reds | Billy Hamilton out Saturday

Sat, 19 Sep 2015 13:27:22 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton (shoulder) remains out of the lineup Saturday, Sept. 19, with OF Jason Bourgeois leading off.

Fantasy Tip: Bourgeois ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is hitting just .208 this month and isn't a good FantasyScore play against Taylor Jungmann.

Reds | Billy Hamilton out again Friday

Fri, 18 Sep 2015 14:04:01 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton (shoulder) is out for a third straight day due to a shoulder injury. OF Jason Bourgeois is in the lineup in Hamilton's place and is leading off against Milwaukee Brewers SP Zach Davies.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) should be kept off your lineup until a day or two after he returns, if he does this season. Bourgeois ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is hitting .308 in the past week and has the top spot, so he is worth the lower salary on your roster.

Reds | Billy Hamilton not in lineup

Tue, 15 Sep 2015 16:41:10 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 15. OF Jason Bourgeois is starting in center field and is hitting leadoff against San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston.

Fantasy Tip: Bourgeois ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has very little power and doesn't run much, so he doesn't have much to offer as a low-end outfield play on FantasyScore in a pitching-friendly environment tonight.

Reds | Billy Hamilton dropped to nine-hole

Sun, 13 Sep 2015 07:40:50 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton is batting ninth and OF Jason Bourgeois is batting first against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha Sunday, Sept. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is 4-for-17 with two walks and two stolen bases over four games since returning from injury. He can post fantasy points in a hurry when he reaches base, but that is the biggest problem. It isn't an ideal matchup to take a gamble on the speedster. Bourgeois ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) should be viewed as nothing more than a low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests Sunday.

Reds | Billy Hamilton not playing

Tue, 08 Sep 2015 10:58:56 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 8. OF Jason Bourgeois continues to start in center field and is hitting leadoff against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton was just activated from the DL today, so the Reds may wait until tomorrow to return him to the starting lineup. Bourgeois ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is a low-end outfield play in daily setups. He's hitting just .237 (28-for-118) this year with only two home runs.

Reds | Jay Bruce out for Game 2 Saturday

Sat, 05 Sep 2015 14:11:50 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce is not in the starting lineup for Game 2 of the doubleheader against the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday, Sept. 5. 3B Adam Duvall is in left field and OF Ryan LaMarre is in center, and OF Jason Bourgeois is manning right field against Brewers SP Wily Peralta.

Fantasy Tip: Bruce ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) is merely sitting because it is the second game of a doubleheader. Both Duvall and LaMarre are September callups who have not extablished much FantasyScore value as of yet.

Reds | Jason Bourgeois scores a pair

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 16:07:22 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jason Bourgeois went 2-for-5 with two runs and a solo home run during the Reds' 7-4 win over the Chicago Cubs Wednesday, Sept. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Bourgeois ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has been playing much more frequently with Billy Hamilton (shoulder) sidelined. He entered the game with a .294/.345/.373 slash line over his past 13 games, and left with another respectable outing. Bourgeois is nothing more than an NL-only and cavernous mixed league option, but he does boast sneaky FantasyScore value at his low cap hit.

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 11:32:23 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Bourgeois ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has hit safely in eight of his last nine games and is batting .268 in 41 at-bats this month. If you're looking for a low-priced flier in FantasyScore, consider him.

Reds | Jason Bourgeois leading off vs. Royals

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 14:59:30 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jason Bourgeois is starting in center field and leading off against Kansas City Royals SP Jeremy Guthrie Wednesday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Bourgeois ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) stands to receive everyday at-bats -- potentially in the leadoff spot -- with Billy Hamilton (shoulder) on the disabled list. Bourgeois has fleeting value in NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, and he is currently an excellent low-priced flier at FantasyScore.
