Cincinnati Reds 3B Todd Frazier and C Devin Mesoraco are not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 15, against the Colorado Rockies. C Brayan Pena is starting behind the plate and batting fifth, and 2B Ramon Santiago is playing third base and batting seventh.
Fantasy Tip: Remove Mesoraco and Fraizer from your daily lineups. This leaves the already depleted Reds lineup without its two best hitters. If ever there was a time to put Franklin Morales in a fantasy lineup, it is tonight. Morales' price in daily games makes him a high-reward option tonight, but obviously he is very risky.
