Diamondbacks | Tyler Clippard an option for D-Backs?

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 11:28:42 -0800

Free-agent RP Tyler Clippard (Mets) could become an option for the Arizona Diamondbacks, according to general manager Dave Stewart.

Fantasy Tip: Clippard slumped down the stretch last season, but he's still a solid fantasy reliever for ratios.

Diamondbacks | Jean Segura in offensive decline?

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 11:16:54 -0800

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Jean Segura's .610 OPS since July of 2013 ranks as the lowest in the majors over that time for players with at least 1,100 plate appearances. Segura's nine-month-old son died in July of 2014, and he was also distracted by a contract dispute during his time in Milwaukee. The ascent of SS prospect Orlando Arcia also weighed on Segura, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Perhaps a change of scenery is just what Segura needed. He's Arizona's middle infielder that should see the most playing time -- either at shortstop or second base -- and his fantasy value is boosted slightly likely sitting atop a much more potent offense. His speed is his biggest asset, but he needs to improve his on-base percentage for it to matter.

Diamondbacks | Jean Segura could hit at top of lineup

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 09:16:46 -0800

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Jean Segura could hit at the top of the batting order, according to general manager Dave Stewart. SS Nick Ahmed started 116 games at shortstop for the Diamondbacks last year, but he's known more for his defense and hit just .226.

Fantasy Tip: Segura should be expected to be the new starting shortstop, although Ahmed will spell him at the 6 occasionally. Segura's fantasy value should increase slightly at the top of a more potent lineup, and his stolen base abilities will continue to be his biggest asset.

Diamondbacks | Chris Owings expected to start at 2B

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 09:13:17 -0800

Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Chris Owings is expected to take over the starting second base job this season.

Fantasy Tip: Owings, 24, struggled in his second full season in the majors, hitting only .227 with four home runs and 43 RBI in 515 at-bats in 2015. The D-backs expect more out of him, but he doesn't have much power to speak of and isn't attractive to fantasy owners unless you're digging for a middle infielder with playing time upside in NL-only universes.

Diamondbacks | Jean Segura to compete

Sat, 30 Jan 2016 16:49:26 -0800

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Jean Segura will compete for a starting spot at shortstop and second base, according to general manager Dave Stewart. Segura will see the majority of his time at shortstop in spring training.

Fantasy Tip: Segura had 25 steals last season and could expand upon that with a little more power in Arizona if he lands a starting gig. He's a midrange SS option in fantasy.

Diamondbacks | Jean Segura headed to desert

Sat, 30 Jan 2016 15:52:50 -0800

Milwaukee Brewers SS Jean Segura was acquired by the Arizona Diamondbacks, along with P Tyler Wagner, in exchange for SP Chase Anderson, 2B Aaron Hill, SS Isan Diaz and cash Saturday, Jan. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Segura's value increases a bit with the jet stream in Arizona's gaps. He had a .257-6-50 line with 25 steals last season, and he could return to double digits in homers.

Diamondbacks | Arizona looking to move Aaron Hill

Sun, 24 Jan 2016 10:51:35 -0800

Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Aaron Hill is a player that the Diamondbacks are looking to trade.

Fantasy Tip: Hill likely will be a bench player this season if he remains with the Diamondbacks but could start if he goes to another team. Hill probably should be considered as a late-round option in deeper leagues at this point but could have more value if he has a starting job.

Diamondbacks | Howie Kendrick still not an option in AZ

Thu, 21 Jan 2016 07:23:01 -0800

Free-agent 2B Howie Kendrick (Dodgers) is still not an option for the Arizona Diamondbacks, who are reluctant to give up their second pick (No. 39) to sign him. The team also thinks 2B Chris Owings will bounce back offensively.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick is still an upper-echelon second baseman wherever he signs after the elite guys are taken in drafts.

Diamondbacks | A.J. Pollock files for arbitration

Sun, 17 Jan 2016 07:31:45 -0800

Arizona Diamondbacks OF A.J. Pollock has filed for salary arbitration. He is seeking a one-year deal worth $3.9 million while the team has countered with a $3.65 million offer.

Fantasy Tip: Pollock hit .315 with 20 home runs, 76 RBIs and 39 steals in 157 games last season and made the All-Star team for the first time in his career. He is expected to serve as Arizona's leadoff man in 2016, so his RBI totals are likely to decrease but he should still be viewed as a top-tier outfielder.

Diamondbacks | Welington Castillo avoids arbitration

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 18:50:38 -0800

The Arizona Diamondbacks have avoided salary arbitration with C Welington Castillo by agreeing to a one-year deal worth $3.7 million.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo will enter 2016 as Arizona's starting catcher, although he should still be viewed as one of the low-end backstop options in standard mixed leagues. He hit .255 with 17 home runs and 50 RBIs in 274 at-bats with the club after beginning last season with the Seattle Mariners.

Diamondbacks | Rubby De La Rosa avoids arbitration

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 18:46:44 -0800

The Arizona Diamondbacks have avoided salary arbitration with SP Rubby De La Rosa by agreeing to a one-year deal worth $2.35 million.

Fantasy Tip: De La Rosa went 14-9 with a 4.67 ERA in 32 starts last season, with 150 strikeouts in 188 2/3 innings. He's worth considering as a middle-of-the-rotation arm in NL-only fantasy leagues, although his ERA is a tad high and his 7.2 K/9 isn't eye-popping.

Diamondbacks | Shelby Miller avoids arbitration

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 18:28:49 -0800

The Arizona Diamondbacks have avoided arbitration with SP Shelby Miller by agreeing to a one-year deal worth $4.35 million.

Fantasy Tip: Miller pitched much better than his 6-17 record last season suggested, with a 3.02 ERA in 33 starts and 171 strikeouts over 205 1/3 innings. The Diamondbacks' offense should provide him with greatly-improved run support and he makes a solid No. 3 fantasy starter in mixed leagues.

Diamondbacks | Arizona not pursuing Fernando Rodney

Sun, 10 Jan 2016 07:43:42 -0800

The Arizona Diamondbacks are not interested in free-agent RP Fernando Rodney (Cubs).

Fantasy Tip: Rodney has been connected to the Chicago Cubs and San Diego Padres this offseason. He is likely to be used as a setup man wherever he lands, although he has closing experience and could see an occasional save opportunity. He's only worth targeting in single-universe fantasy leagues at this point.

Diamondbacks | ARI reached out to Howie Kendrick

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 20:24:53 -0800

The Arizona Diamondbacks have talked to the representatives of free-agent 2B Howie Kendrick (Dodgers), although general manager Dave Stewart did not sound optimistic Wednesday, Dec. 30, about a possible signing.

Fantasy Tip: The D-Backs would have to cough up a compensatory draft pick by signing Kendrick, so it appears the GM is hesitant to do so. Kendrick will land somewhere, it's just a matter of time.

Diamondbacks | Mike Leake not going to Arizona

Thu, 10 Dec 2015 09:40:04 -0800

Free-agent SP Mike Leake (Giants) was courted by the Arizona Diamondbacks Wednesday, Dec. 9, but the two sides couldn't strike a deal.

Fantasy Tip: Leake will be a back-end fantasy rotation option for your mixed league team regardless of his destination.
