Diamondbacks | Josh Collmenter earns shutout

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 05:43:37 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Josh Collmenter threw a complete game shutout against the San Francisco Giants Friday, April 17. Collmenter allowed four hits over the nine innings with two strike outs and one walk.

Fantasy Tip: Collmenter ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) struggled in his first two starts of the season but had a great outing against the Giants. Collmenter is scheduled to face the Pittsburgh Pirates in his next start and could be a risky option on FantasyScore.

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 15:58:50 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Mark Trumbo is not in the starting lineup Friday, April 17.

Fantasy Tip: Trumbo ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) likely is just receiving a day off and will return to the lineup Saturday, April 18. David Peralta ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is taking his place in the lineup but may not be the best option for owners on FantasyScore.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb not playing vs. lefty

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 14:57:53 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb is not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants left-handed SP Madison Bumgarner Thursday, April 16. 2B Aaron Hill is starting at the hot corner and hitting fifth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Hill ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has just five hits in 27 at-bats to start the year, including six strikeouts. Against Bumgarner, he's not the most ideal option for FantasyScore users tonight.

Diamondbacks | Yasmany Tomas penciled into bech role

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 16:36:29 -0700

Updating a previous report, Arizona Diamondbacks OF/3B Yasmany Tomas will be used primarily as a pinch-hitter and could receive a few starts in the outfield and at third base against left-handed pitchers, according to general manager Dave Stewart.

Fantasy Tip: Tomas' fantasy stock takes a huge hit with this news, which also raises the question of why he didn't stay with Triple-A Reno and receive everyday at-bats. Still, the upside is there, and the Diamondbacks have a lot invested in Tomas financially. Monitor his playing time, but he still warrants a roster spot in deep formats.

Diamondbacks | David Peralta out Wednesday

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 16:04:23 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF David Peralta is not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres SP Brandon Morrow Wednesday, April 15. OF Ender Inciarte is starting in left field and hitting leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: Inciarte ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has been a spark plug for the D-backs at the top of the lineup early in the year, hitting .393 (11-for-28) with six RBI. He's a nice value play at FantasyScore tonight for one of your outfield spots, even though he'll be in a hitter's park facing a pitcher that looked great in his first outing of the season.

Diamondbacks | Yasmany Tomas recalled from Class AAA

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 14:51:15 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B/OF Yasmany Tomas was recalled from Triple-A Reno Wednesday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: Tomas should be owned in the majority of formats, as he owns high-end power potential. However, he hasn't had a great start with Reno, which follows an unimpressive spring showing. He did not appear at third base during his minor league stint, so it appears likely he'll play in an already crowded outfield. Expect David Peralta and Ender Inciarte to feel the most significant pinch to their playing time. Still, it will likely be a fluid situation, which could take away a few at-bats from everyone.

Diamondbacks | Ender Inciarte sitting against Padres

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 15:17:51 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Ender Inciarte is not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres SP Odrisamer Despaigne Tuesday, April 14. OF A.J. Pollock is starting in center field and hitting leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: The D-backs continue to rotate their outfielders even after Inciarte's big game Monday night. Pollock ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is an intriguing FantasyScore option tonight at the top of what has been a very productive Arizona lineup in the early going. He hit .307 with four of his seven home runs against right-handers in 2014.

Diamondbacks | Ender Inciarte with big night

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 23:24:17 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Ender Inciarte went 3-for-5 with a career-high four RBIs Monday, April 13.

Fantasy Tip: Inciarte ($1,900, 3.8% of your cap) is 9-for-24 (.375) with six RBIs over the last week. At his basement price, he's worth consideration for a low-end outfield spot on FantasyScore Tuesday against the San Diego Padres.

Diamondbacks | A.J. Pollock sitting out

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 15:12:55 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF A.J. Pollock is not in the starting lineup Monday, April 13.

Fantasy Tip: Pollock ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should returning to the lineup in the next game. Ender Inciarte ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is starting in center field Monday, and could be a solid starting option on FantasyScore since he is off to a good start at the plate.

Diamondbacks | David Peralta batting fourth

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 15:12:15 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF David Peralta is batting cleanup in the starting lineup Monday, April 13.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has batted fourth in each of his previous two games but has gone 1-for-8 in those games. Owners on FantasyScore probably will be able to find better options to use.

Diamondbacks | Patrick Corbin eyeing June return

Sun, 12 Apr 2015 12:18:03 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin (elbow), who is recovering from Tommy John surgery, is expected to return to action in early June.

Fantasy Tip: Corbin is worth monitoring in all fantasy formats and he could be a good bargain in FantasyScore once he's activated from the disabled list.

Diamondbacks | Aaron Hill starting at third

Fri, 10 Apr 2015 13:25:21 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Aaron Hill is starting at third base and batting fifth against the Los Angeles Dodgers Friday, April 10.

Fantasy Tip: Hill ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has the favorable handedness in his favor against southpaw Brett Anderson, and hitting in the middle of the lineup is another plus. At his cap hit, Hill is worth a flier in FantasyScore contests Friday.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb sitting vs. Dodgers

Fri, 10 Apr 2015 13:23:39 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb is not in the starting lineup against the Los Angeles Dodgers Friday, April 10.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Lamb from your lineups in all fantasy formats. Against left-handed pitchers Aaron Hill ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has been starting at the hot corner, and it is likely the platoon will continue the majority of the time for the foreseeable future. Lamb has seven RBI already this season, and is worth a look in deep mixed leagues, especially if third base is an area of weakness. Hill is worth considering as a low-priced flier in FantasyScore contests Friday, too.

Diamondbacks | Yasmany Tomas' weight in question

Thu, 09 Apr 2015 12:06:43 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Yasmany Tomas will need to get in better shape before spring training in 2016. Manager Chip Hale said the team would like to see the Cuban import in better shape. Tomas started the year at Triple-A Reno after losing the starting third base job to 3B Jake Lamb. "The fitness part of it we expect is not going to happen over the course of this season because it's just too hard," Hale said. "But in the offseason I think you'll see a big change. He has a (weight) goal and he'll get there."

Fantasy Tip: Tomas ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) needs defensive seasoning in both the outfield and at third base in the minors, and there is no timetable for him to make his major league debut in Arizona. In standard leagues, you'll need to keep him stashed for now.
