Arizona Diamondbacks news, rumors and injuries
Mon, 25 May 2015 12:24:59 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Peralta ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has at least one hit in only five of his last 11 games but is hitting .246 in May. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find a better option to use in their lineups.
Mon, 25 May 2015 12:12:52 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Pollock ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) should return to the starting lineup in the near future. David Peralta ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) will take his placed in the starting lineup but may not be the best option for owners on FantasyScore.
Mon, 25 May 2015 02:02:53 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Arroyo ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) could give Arizona's rotation a much-needed jolt in the next few weeks. Monitor his progress and allow some extra time for him to settle in once activated.
Sun, 24 May 2015 12:22:03 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Pacheco ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is only batting .207 during the month of May. Unless you're a FantasyScore owner looking for salary cap relief at the backstop position, look elsewhere.
Sun, 24 May 2015 11:55:37 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Tomas ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is receiving the day off, despite batting .406 with five RBIs over the last seven days. Hill ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has struggled of late, with three hits in his last 18 at-bats, while Owings ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has been even worse, with only two hits in his last 24 at-bats.
Sat, 23 May 2015 14:34:54 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Peralta ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) continues to be an adequate play against right-handed pitchers. Batting behind A.J Pollock, Mark Trumbo and Paul Goldschmidt, Peralta will have plenty of potential to drive in runs, making him an intriguing FantasyScore choice for GPP tournaments.
Sat, 23 May 2015 14:30:27 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Hill ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is 0-for-his-last-13, and he has hit just .246 against right-handers this season. Hill should be avoided on FantasyScore against RHP Jake Arrieta.
Sat, 23 May 2015 14:18:43 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Trumbo ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has gone 5-for-26 in his last six games, making it odd that he's now jumping up the batting order. Against a tough right-handed pitcher in Jake Arrieta, Trumbo should be avoided on FantasyScore.
Sat, 23 May 2015 13:44:43 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Tomas ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) looks like he has dropped a little weight and it may have affected his batting average and overall performance. He remains a decent start at this low price.
Sat, 23 May 2015 06:22:02 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Dating back to Wednesday, May 6, Pollock ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has 15 runs, three home runs, eight RBI and six stolen bases with a .359/.397/.594 slash line. FantasyScore players will want to note two things. First, his .400 BABIP is due to drop closer to the norm, and Pollock's stat line will level off. However, seven of his last 23 hits have gone for extra bases, so he is a great play in points formats, like daily contests.
Sat, 23 May 2015 05:59:31 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Goldschmidt ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) is up to 31 runs, 11 home runs, 35 RBI and eight stolen bases to go with a .331/.429/.623 slash line. Continue to target him in FantasyScore contests as a lineup building block, and especially when facing a favorable matchup.
Fri, 22 May 2015 15:31:11 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Continue to stash Corbin in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, but he won't be an immediate must-start arm when he returns. It would be wise to be patient with him in all formats, and especially in FantasyScore contests. Continue to check back for updates on Corbin's recovery and a new timeline for his return.
Fri, 22 May 2015 14:57:36 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Lake is a viable flier for cap relief in daily contests Friday, but he isn't without risk. He has just 15 plate appearances at the highest level this season, and he is only a career .244 hitter.
Fri, 22 May 2015 14:21:08 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Hill ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday. He has caught fire of late and is currently sporting a .975 OPS since Wednesday, May 6, with seven runs, two home runs, nine RBI and two stolen bases.
Fri, 22 May 2015 14:16:32 -0700
Fantasy Tip: With tough-lefty Jon Lester on the hill, Peralta ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) slides into a bench role and should be avoided in all fantasy formats Friday. Peralta does his best work against right-handed pitchers, as he sports a career .305/.342/.510 slash line against righties.
