Diamondbacks | Rubby De La Rosa back in action

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 22:51:03 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa is scheduled to start Thursday, June 30, against the Houston Astros. He has allowed just one earned run over the past 15 innings.

Fantasy Tip: De La Rosa ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has posted good results over the past couple of outings, and he should rack up big strikeout totals against the Astros, who strike out more than anyone in the American League.

Diamondbacks | Welington Castillo back with bang

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 22:50:34 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Welington Castillo (elbow) had a pair of home runs with three RBIs in his return to the lineup Wednesday, July 29, against the Seattle Mariners.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo's ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) performance was impressive enough, but his homers came off of Felix Hernandez which is even more impressive.

Diamondbacks | Nick Ahmed sitting out

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 11:26:54 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 29. SS Cliff Pennington is starting at the 6 and hitting ninth against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez.

Fantasy Tip: Pennington ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be ignored in all daily contests.

Diamondbacks | Yasmany Tomas the DH

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 11:23:05 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Yasmany Tomas is serving as the designated hitter and is batting seventh against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez Wednesday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: Tomas ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has been struggling at the plate a bit in July, going 18-for-75 (.240) with 26 strikeouts and two home runs. It's unlikely that he'll get back on track today against King Felix and the M's. Tomas is a risky daily play.

Diamondbacks | Welington Castillo back in

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 11:17:37 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo (elbow) is back in the lineup and is hitting fifth against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez Wednesday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is a catcher to avoid on FantasyScore today against one of the better pitchers in all of baseball.

Diamondbacks | Oscar Hernandez starts at C

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 17:57:38 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Oscar Hernandez is starting behind the plate Tuesday, July 28, against the Seattle Mariners with C Welington Castillo (elbow) sidelined.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a solid low-priced option at backstop in FantasyScore, allowing you to save thousands in salary to allocate at other more valuable spots.

Diamondbacks | Jarrod Saltalamacchia starting at DH

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 17:57:04 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is making the start at designated Tuesday, July 28, against the Seattle Mariners in an American League park.

Fantasy Tip: Salty ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is a decent low-priced alternative at receiver in FantasyScore, and he will save you valuable salary to spread across more valuable positions.

Diamondbacks | Welington Castillo out of the lineup

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 17:56:36 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo (elbow) is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 28, against the Seattle Mariners. Castillo's elbow is better, and he is expected to return Wednesday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) was hit on the elbow by a pitch so he is getting a day off. The injury doesn't sound tremendously seriously, but avoid him in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health.

Diamondbacks | ARI pursing Aroldis Chapman

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 13:13:01 -0700

Cincinnati Reds RP Aroldis Chapman is being pursued by the Arizona Diamondbacks in advance of the July 31 trade deadline.

Fantasy Tip: Chapman's ability to toss a 100 mile an hour fastball is attracting plenty of attention from teams, but the asking price for Chapman may be too high, according to some sources. Chapman remains one of the best relief pitchers on the market and in fantasy leagues.

Diamondbacks | Dansby Swanson suffers concussion

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 07:26:47 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Dansby Swanson (concussion) suffered a concussion and received 14 stitches on the side of his mouth after he was hit in the face by a pitch in a simulated game Thursday, July 23.

Fantasy Tip: The No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft was hit in the face by fellow prospect Yoan Lopez. Swanson was expected to begin his minor league career this week, but that has been pushed back. Swanson is still a worthwhile dynasty league commodity.

Diamondbacks | Arizona looking at Cole Hamels

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 14:07:47 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels has received interest from the Arizona Diamondbacks, and they have reached out to the Phillies to express their interest, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: It's probably unlikely the D-backs land Hamels ($8,900, 17.8% of cap), but even a move to Arizona and the National League West would likely be at least a small upgrade to his fantasy value. He remains a true fantasy ace that should become more valuable even with a move to the American League.

Diamondbacks | Jeremy Hellickson pitching well

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 20:49:45 -0700

Arizona Diamondback SP Jeremy Hellickson allowed four hits and struck out six over six scoreless innings in a win over the Milwaukee Brewers Sunday, July 26.

Fantasy Tip: Hellickson ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has allowed two runs or less in four straight starts, and he is worth using as a source of cap relief at FantasyScore while he is pitching this well.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb feeling healthy

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 20:22:17 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb went 2-for-4 with a triple, double, RBI and run scored in a 3-0 win over the Milwaukee Brewers Sunday, July 26, and he admitted to being rusty while he was working his way back from a foot injury.

Fantasy Tip: Lamb ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) hasn't shown much power this season, so his two extra-base hits Sunday are an encouraging sign. For now, you can find other players in the same price range at FantasyScore that offer more potential.

Diamondbacks | Yasmany Tomas out again

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 15:31:38 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Yasmany Tomas is out of the lineup Saturday, July 25, for the second straight day. OF Ender Inciarte is leading off and playing right field.

Fantasy Tip: Inciarte ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is 11-for-26 (.423) the last seven days. He doesn't hit for any power, and you'd like to have at least some power potential when you get close to the $4,000 range. He's facing rookie Taylor Jungmann, who has been solid, and Inciarte doesn't have a lot of upside on FantasyScore.

Diamondbacks | Patrick Corbin fans 10 during loss

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 05:47:49 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin struck out 10 batters while allowing a single run on four hits and a walk over seven innings during Arizona's 2-1 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers Friday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: This was Corbin's ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) best of four starts since returning from Tommy John surgery Saturday, July 4. Fantasy owners should expect the odd peak and valley as he works his way back, but his upside warrants ownership in the majority of yearly leagues. He is cheap at FantasyScore, too, and worth targeting in favorable matchups.
