Reds | Brayan Pena out Tuesday

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 10:56:39 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena is out of the lineup for the second straight day Tuesday, June 30. C Tucker Barnhart receives another start and is hitting seventh against Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes.

Fantasy Tip: Barnhart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) recorded four hits last night and is batting .308 (24-for-78) in a backup role this year. The switch-hitting catcher has excelled against righties in 2015 (.344/.386/.547) but remains a low-end sleeper play that'll give you cap relief.

Reds | Tucker Barnhart starting vs. Twins

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 12:16:28 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Tucker Barnhart is starting behind the plate and batting seventh against Minnesota Twins SP Mike Pelfrey Monday, June 29. C Brayan Pena is not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Barnhart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is 8-for-15 over his last four games with a 1.296 OPS. It is a small sample size, but he stands out as a solid upside source of cap relief for FantasyScore players Monday. Pena ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has only started three of the past seven games, and the catching situation is worth monitoring for owners in cavernous mixed, NL-only and two-catcher formats.

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena had four singles in four at-bats with a run scored and two RBIs Wednesday, June 10, against the Philadelphia Phillies, raising his batting average to .307. The four hits matched a career high.

Fantasy Tip: Pena ($2,900; or 5.8% of cap) has multi-hit games each of the past two days, and in three of his past four starts. When he is in the lineup he is a decent low-priced backstop for FantasyScore players while hot.

Reds | Brayan Pena sitting out

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 12:20:35 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 3. C Tucker Barnhart will be the starting catcher for the Reds.

Fantasy Tip: Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Barnhart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has posted decent numbers in his limited playing time and has at least one hit in nine of his last 12 starts. Barnhart is not the best option for owners on FantasyScore, but he could be an option if owners are looking to save some money.
