Diamondbacks | Shelby Miller's finger still an issue

Thu, 26 May 2016 08:42:06 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Shelby Miller (finger) is still bothered by a finger on his right hand that he banged on the mound in April, according to manager Chip Hale. Miller has been healthy enough to pitch, but the team will continue to evaluate his health. He is still on track for his next start Sunday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: Miller hasn't been good all year, and he's not a wise start until things start to turn around.

Diamondbacks | Jean Segura returns

Thu, 26 May 2016 08:30:28 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Jean Segura (head) returned to the lineup Thursday, May 26, and he's leading off.

Fantasy Tip: Segura has tapered off with a .293 average this month. He has a tough matchup against Gerrit Cole, but he remains a midrange consideration.

Diamondbacks | Two D-Backs sitting out

Thu, 26 May 2016 07:42:09 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo and SS Nick Ahmed are out of the lineup Thursday, May 26, with OF Michael Bourn hitting second and C Chris Herrmann hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Herrmann is hitting .390 with three homers and 13 RBI this month. He's a great low-end option against Gerrit Cole. Bourn is 6-for-17 (.353) with one steal with the D-Backs, but he's more of a traditional leaguer than a DFS option because his value comes in steals.

Diamondbacks | Yasmany Tomas homers Wednesday

Wed, 25 May 2016 20:46:34 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Yasmany Tomas went 2-for-4 with one home run and two RBI against the Pittsburgh Pirates Wednesday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Tomas has only three hits in his last six games but also has four RBI during that span. He should be in the starting lineup for Arizona most nights and should be a valuable player in most leagues.

Diamondbacks | Yasmany Tomas hitting eighth vs. Pirates

Wed, 25 May 2016 14:36:13 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Yasmany Tomas is batting eighth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke Wednesday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Tomas is mired in a 5-for-33 slump with just a single extra-base hit, which could explain his drop in the order, as he has hit in the heart of the lineup the majority of the season. Tomas remains a viable option in the majority of seasonal leagues, but it might be best to bench him until he turns it around at the dish.

Diamondbacks | Nick Ahmed leading off vs. Pirates

Wed, 25 May 2016 13:59:25 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed (head) is leading off against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke Wednesday, May 25. Ahmed left the game early Tuesday, May 24, after he was hit in the face by a pitch.

Fantasy Tip: Ahmed sees a fleeting value boost hitting atop the lineup, and he has a respectable .277/.335/.439 slash line against southpaws dating back to the beginning of last season. While his seasonal value is limited to cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, Ahmed could be a decent flier in daily contests Wednesday.

Diamondbacks | Rickie Weeks draws into the lineup

Wed, 25 May 2016 13:52:54 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Rickie Weeks is starting in right field and batting second against Pittsburgh Pirtates SP Jeff Locke Wednesday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Weeks has only received 46 plate appearances this season and turned them into a modest .238/.283/.429 slash line. He is nothing more than a depth option in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. However, in daily contests Wednesday, Weeks is a decent low-priced flier given his lineup spot and respectable .813 OPS against southpaws since the beginning of 2014.

Diamondbacks | Brandon Drury starting at second

Wed, 25 May 2016 13:50:36 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B/OF Brandon Drury is starting at second base and batting fifth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke Wednesday May 25. 2B Jean Segura (head) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Drury is receiving enough at-bats to be a viable option in the majority of seasonal leagues, and he has a .300/.329/.520 slash line for the campaign. He is a viable option in daily contests Wednesday, too. Segura was not diagnosed with a concussion after being hit in the head with a pitch during the game Tuesday, May 24, so he should return to the lineup sooner than later.

Diamondbacks | Jean Segura is not concussed

Wed, 25 May 2016 13:39:03 -0700

Updating a previous report, Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Jean Segura (head) said he did not suffer a concussion after being hit in the head by a pitch Tuesday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: Stay tuned for updates on Segura, but it appears he has avoided any serious injury and should be back in the lineup soon. To this point, he has an impressive 25 runs, five home runs, 23 RBI and six stolen bases with a .316/.347/.477 slash line.

Diamondbacks | Jean Segura sent for tests

Wed, 25 May 2016 09:08:54 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Jean Segura (head) was sent to the hospital for tests after showing signs of a concussion after he was hit by a pitch in the head Tuesday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: Don't expect Segura to be in the lineup today, and if he's diagnosed with a concussion he'll need to go on the 7-day concussion disabled list. Be prepared to be without him for at least a week and possibly longer. Phil Gosselin, Brandon Drury or Chris Owings are all candidates to see time at second base if Segura misses time.

Diamondbacks | Shelby Miller roughed up again

Tue, 24 May 2016 19:48:23 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Shelby Miller dropped to 1-6 on the season after losing his start Tuesday, May 24, opposite the Pittsburgh Pirates. He went five innings, yielding six runs on eight hits and four walks. He also struck out three.

Fantasy Tip: Miller's disastrous first season in Arizona continues. He was actually doing better in May, holding a 4.71 ERA for the month before tonight's assignment. Now, he owns a 7.09 ERA for the year, while also having almost as many walks (29) as strikeouts (30) in 45 2/3 total innings. Miller can't be trusted in any format right now and owners should wait until he can finally get into a rhythm.

Diamondbacks | Nick Ahmed out of the game

Tue, 24 May 2016 19:12:17 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed (head) left the game early Tuesday, May 24, after he was hit in the face by a pitch. OF Chris Owings moved to shortstop, while C Chris Herrmann entered the game to play center field.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Ahmed will miss any time. Ahmed and Phil Gosselin are options to start at shortstop and would be sleeper option in daily fantasy leagues.

Diamondbacks | Jean Segura leaves game

Tue, 24 May 2016 18:35:26 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Jean Segura (head) left the game early Tuesday, May 24, after being hit in the head by a pitch. He was replaced by OF Michael Bourn.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will have to keep an eye on the situation because Segura likely will be tested for a concussion. Chris Owings and Phil Gosselin are candidates to start at second base if Segura misses time and may be sleeper options in daily fantasy leagues. Bourn could receive starts if Owings moves to the middle infield but is not a strong fantasy option.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb out vs. lefty

Tue, 24 May 2016 11:32:03 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb is not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates left-handed SP Francisco Liriano Tuesday, May 24. 2B Phil Gosselin is starting at third base and is hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Gosselin doesn't do much at the plate (.250-1-4) and isn't a strong candidate to take as a deep sleeper in DFS action despite the nice position in the batting order tonight. Look elsewhere.

Diamondbacks | Three hits for Michael Bourn

Sun, 22 May 2016 17:19:08 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Michael Bourn went 3-for-5 with an RBI in a 9-2 win over the St. Louis Cardinals Sunday, May 22, and he is hitting .375 in five games with Arizona.

Fantasy Tip: Bourn is off to a solid start with his new team, but with his speed diminished at this stage in his career, he is merely a fringe option in NL-only leagues.
