Diamondbacks | Zack Grienke throws bullpen

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 14:45:50 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke (oblique) threw 45 pitches during a bullpen session Sunday, July 24. His next step either will be a simulated game with the Diamondbacks or a minor league rehab game, manager Chip Hale said.

Fantasy Tip: Keep an eye on Greinke's progress and be prepared to activate him after he has had one major league start, mainly to see how Greinke does when he returns.

Diamondbacks | Zack Godley takes win

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 14:38:58 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Godley became the first pitcher in franchise history to reach seven career wins as a starter in as few as 10 starts. He allowed 10 hits and five runs with two walks and three strikeouts and also hit a batter Sunday, July 24, in a 9-8 win over the Cincinnati Reds.

Fantasy Tip: Godley is only 3-1 overall, but here's the bad news. He has a 5.88 ERA and a 1.62 WHIP. Those totals are way too high to recommend playing him. Also, Godley is in a precarious role as the fifth starter on the team. He could find himself on the outside looking in.

Diamondbacks | Yasmany Tomas hits two homers

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 14:32:24 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Yasmany Tomas hit his 14th and 15th home runs of the season Sunday, July 24, in a 9-8 win over the Cincinnati Reds.

Fantasy Tip: Tomas has been a bit of a disappointment this year. Entering this game his line was .252-13-34, so to drive in that few runs with that many homers isn't really special. Still, Tomas has had nine hits in his last seven games, including three doubles, so he is showing some signs of life at the plate. He may be worth play in DFS formats and deeper NL and mixed leagues.

Diamondbacks | Paul Goldschmidt breaks slump

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 14:24:43 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt hit a solo run in his team's 9-8 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday, July 24. Goldschmidt was 0-for-6 with four walks in the series prior to this homer.

Fantasy Tip: Goldschmidt is hitting .290-16-62 with 13 stolen bases, but his home run production had declined in the last week. Still, he's hitting well enough to recommend his usage in all formats.

Diamondbacks | Shelby Miller available

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 12:00:20 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Shelby Miller has been made available in a trade, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Miller has had an awful first season with Arizona and is currently 2-9 with a 7.14 ERA. He probably would receive the chance to start if he is traded but is not a strong fantasy option until he is able to put several quality starts together.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb, Michael Bourn out Sunday

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 09:30:27 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb and OF Michael Bourn are not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Brandon Finnegan Sunday, July 24. INF/OF Chris Owings will hit sixth and play center field, while INF/OF Brandon Drury will bat seventh and play third base. In addition, INF Phil Gosselin will bat second and play second base, OF Rickie Weeks will hit cleanup and start in left field and C Welington Castillo will bat fifth and start behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Arizona is using a lineup exclusively made up of right-handed and switch hitters against the lefty Finnegan this afternoon, which explains the absences of Bourn and Lamb. Although he has struggled recently, Weeks may be worthy of consideration as a value play in DFS because he is hitting fourth and has performed well on the road (.304) and against southpaws (.278) this season.

Reds | No Eugenio Suarez vs. Diamondbacks

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 07:36:48 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS/3B Eugenio Suarez is not in the starting lineup Sunday, July 24. INF Ivan De Jesus is starting at third base and batting seventh against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Godley Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Suarez is struggling in July with just six runs, two home runs, three RBI and a .242/.299/.355 slash line. He's a replaceable asset in most mixed settings. De Jesus owns a .242/.303/.350 line over the past two seasons and is nothing more than a desperation start in all fantasy formats Sunday.

Diamondbacks | Braden Shipley to start Monday

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 18:24:17 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Braden Shipley will be promoted from Class AAA Reno to make his MLB debut against the Milwaukee Brewers Monday, July 25. Although he is filling in for injured SP Zack Greinke (oblique), it is uncertain if Shipley will remain in the rotation beyond Monday's game.

Fantasy Tip: The 24-year-old right-hander was 8-5 with a 3.70 ERA in 19 starts for Reno, with 22 walks and 77 strikeouts over 119 1/3 innings. He may be worth picking up in NL-only seasonal leagues but daily fantasy players should avoid using Shipley because of his lack of a track record at the big-league level.

Diamondbacks | Nick Ahmed placed on disabled list

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 13:16:30 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed (hip) was placed on the 15 day disabled list on Saturday, July 23, with a right hip impingement. INF/OF Chris Owings was activated off the DL to replace Ahmed.

Fantasy Tip: Owings was batting .285 with two home runs with 18 RBI and eight stolen bases prior to being diagnosed with plantar fascilitis. He'll make his first start since June 5 on Saturday and represent an intermediate upgrade over Ahmed, who is hitting just .218 with four home runs and 20 RBI in 90 games this season. Owings has a shot to be relevant in mixed leagues before the end of the season, but owners should let him get re-acclimated to major-league pitching again first.

Diamondbacks | Welington Castillo gets a break

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 12:26:08 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo and SS Nick Ahmed are not in the lineup against the Cincinnati Reds SP Keyvius Sampson on Saturday, July 23. INF/OF Chris Owings will fill in for Ahmed and hit fifth, while C Tuffy Gosewisch will replace Castillo behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo is batting a miserable .158 in July, but this appears to be nothing more than a day off as he is in no danger of losing his job to Gosewisch. Owings will be making his first big-league appearance since June 5 after recovering from a foot injury, but neither Gosewisch nor Owings is worth using outside of NL-only leagues today.

Diamondbacks | Chip Hale may be replaced

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 23:48:45 -0700

The Arizona Diamondbacks may replace manager Chip Hale in the next couple weeks.

Fantasy Tip: A managerial change doesn't carry fantasy value with it, but whoever replaces Hale may have his own set of favorites. Phil Nevin is rumored to be in line for the job, and Nevin could have his own favorite players. If Hale is let go, see how the lineup shakes out before going for certain players in daily and overall leagues. Players like Paul Goldschmidt and Zack Greinke would be safe, obviously.

Diamondbacks | Zack Greinke to throw bullpen session

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 19:47:07 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke (oblique) will throw his first bullpen session Saturday, July 23, and a decision on whether he is ready for a simulated game will be made following the session.

Fantasy Tip: A timetable for his return remains uncertain, but he should be stashed in all formats in the meantime.

Diamondbacks | Archie Bradley good on the road

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 15:43:38 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Archie Bradley has a 1.57 ERA in his last four road outings, which is the second-lowest mark in the National League since his promotion from the minors May 29.

Fantasy Tip: Bradley, who has a 4.37 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 8.9 K/9 on the year, is facing the Reds in a hitter-friendly environment Friday night. Given his road splits he'd seem to be a nice under-the-radar daily pick as your second starter. But the fact remains he's been pretty inconsistent this year and is a low-end risk-reward starter.

Diamondbacks | Zack Greinke rehab update

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 19:00:02 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke (oblique) played catch from a distance of 120 to 150 feet Tuesday, July 19. He could have a bullpen workout in the coming days, according to manager Chip Hale.

Fantasy Tip: Greinke was pitching well prior to landing on the disabled list and should remain stashed in all fantasy formats. Since April 30, the 32-year-old right-hander is 8-1 with a 2.63 ERA over 12 starts, with 15 walks and 67 strikeouts over 78 2/3 innings.

Diamondbacks | Welington Castillo had minor hand injury

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 18:48:00 -0700

Updating a previous report, Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo (hand) was out of the starting lineup against the Toronto Blue Jays Wednesday, July 20, because of a minor hand injury suffered after being hit by a pitch Monday, July 18. However, manager Chip Hale said he was fine and added that he was available off the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Through 69 games this season, Castillo is batting .261 with 10 home runs and 30 RBI. He should be viewed as a midrange catching option in all fantasy formats.
