Diamondbacks | Nick Ahmed takes a seat

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 14:46:52 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed is not in the starting lineup Friday, April 29. SS Jean Segura moves to shortstop and 3B Brandon Drury is starting at second base and is hitting seventh against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Chatwood.

Fantasy Tip: Ahmed is a defensive-first shortstop who's hitting just .190 (15-for-79), and he could see more bench time if Drury continues to swing a hot bat. Ahmed is an NL-only depth piece. Drury is hitting a cool .414 (12-for-29) with two homers and four RBI in his last seven games. He's a waiver wire target in deep mixed leagues for depth. Keep rolling with him as a low-priced sleeper in daily formats while he's hot.

Diamondbacks | Rubby De La Rosa fans 10

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 21:41:26 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa allowed two hits while walking two and striking out 10 over seven shutout innings in a win over the St. Louis Cardinals Thursday, April 28.

Fantasy Tip: De La Rosa made an adjustment to his approach a couple of starts ago, and he has allowed five hits and one run while striking out 16 over his last 13 innings. The success may not continue, but his strikeout potential makes him worth a look in deeper mixed formats.

Diamondbacks | No Welington Castillo vs. St. Louis

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 13:53:25 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 28. C Chris Herrmann is starting behind the plate and batting sixth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo is picking up where he left off in 2015 after joining the Diamondbacks, as he has six home runs and 12 RBI with a .290/.351/.580 slash line to start the season. Herrmann has a tough matchup against Wacha, and he should be viewed as a low-end start Thursday, especially in daily contests. Plus, Herrmann is just 3-for-25 to start the season.

Diamondbacks | Yasmany Tomas riding pine vs. Cards

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 13:40:12 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Yasmany Tomas is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 28. 3B/OF Brandon Drury is starting in left field and batting fifth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Tomas has paid off for fantasy owners who targeted him as a breakout candidate entering the season. The sophomore currently sits with 16 runs, five home runs and 12 RBI with a .288/.333/.563 slash line. Similarly, Drury has fared well when given an opportunity with a .298/.317/.526 line through 60 plate appearances. He is a risky start in the tough matchup against Wacha Thursday, though.

Diamondbacks | Patrick Corbin tuned up by Cards

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 23:56:04 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin allowed seven earned runs, seven hits and five walks over 5 2/3 inning in a loss Wednesday, April 27, against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: It was an ugly performance for Corbin who saw his record slip to 1-3 with a 4.88 ERA. He hasn't been very ace-like and is killing his fantasy owners. There is still plenty of time to turn it around, however, and you should stick it out and not compound the problem by dropping him and watching Corbin get hot with another fantasy owners team.

Diamondbacks | Hit streak over for Yasmany Tomas

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 23:55:35 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Yasmany Tomas went hitless in four at-bats with a strikeout Wednesday, April 27, against the St. Louis Cardinals to snap his 12-game hitting streak.

Fantasy Tip: Tomas entered the day with the longest active streak in the National League. He is still hitting .333 (19-for-57) with 15 runs scored, five homers and eight RBIs over the past 13 games to make him a must-start fantasy option until he cools off.

Diamondbacks | Two more hits for Jean Segura

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 23:55:05 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Jean Segura had two more hits Wednesday, April 27, against the St. Louis Cardinals. It was his 11th multi-hit game, most in the majors.

Fantasy Tip: Segura is hitting a cool .350 with a sparkling .932 OPS, and he has hit safely in each of his past seven games. He has emerged as a must-start in all fantasy formats.

Diamondbacks | Welington Castillo swinging hot bat

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 15:45:22 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo has been hot at the plate over the past seven days. In five games, he's hitting 9-for-22 (.409) with four home runs, nine RBI, seven runs scored and he even has a stolen base.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo began to make his case during spring training as one of baseball's most underrated catchers, and that success has evidently poured into the regular season. The former Chicago Cub is solidifying himself as a legitimate starting fantasy catcher, even in standard leagues, and owners should pounce if he's still out there. Plus, it also helps he plays half his games in a hitter-friendly park.

Diamondbacks | Chris Owings not starting

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 14:06:21 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks INF/OF Chris Owings is not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright Wednesday, April 27. OF David Peralta will start in center field, while OF Brandon Drury will start in right field and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Drury has been on a hot streak recently with 12 hits and four RBI over his last eight games. He could be a starting candidate in some daily fantasy leagues even though he is facing one of the better pitchers in the National League.

Diamondbacks | Shelby Miller bombed by old mates

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 23:45:49 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Shelby Miller allowed five earned runs, five hits and four walks with six strikeouts over five innings in a loss Tuesday, April 26, against the St. Louis Cardinals, his former team.

Fantasy Tip: Miller's ERA slipped to 8.69 on the season. He worked four scoreless innings before getting hammered for five runs in the fifth inning. He can no longer be trusted in any fantasy format until he strings together a good start or two.

Diamondbacks | Josh Collmenter works in extended spring

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 23:45:21 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Josh Collmenter (shoulder) threw one inning in an extended spring training game Monday, April 25, and he worked another inning in the bullpen. He will work in an extended spring game Thursday, April 28 before he heads out to Class A Visalia for a minor-league rehab assignment.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain in what capacity Collmenter will work when he returns to the big club. Avoid him in fantasy leagues until his situation becomes more certain.

Diamondbacks | Yasmany Tomas homers, stays hot

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 23:44:53 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Yasmany Tomas went 2-for-4 with a double and solo home run Tuesday, April 26, against the St. Louis Cardinals to push his hitting streak to 12 games.

Fantasy Tip: Tomas is 19-for-53 (.358) with five homers and eight RBIs during his hit streak, longest active run in the National League. Needless to say he is a must-start fantasy option across all formats.

Diamondbacks | Jean Segura with four hits

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 23:24:09 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS/2B Jean Segura was 4-for-6 including a three-run homer Monday, April 25, against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Segura is hitting .400 at home and .352 overall. He's a daily consideration in DFS.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb out again Monday

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 15:29:58 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb is not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals left-handed SP Jaime Garcia Monday, April 25. 3B Brandon Drury starts at third base and is batting second.

Fantasy Tip: Lamb will often be rested against southpaws, so take note of that across all fantasy formats. Drury has nine hits in his last 22 at-bats, including a home run, triple and three RBI in five games. He's a consideration as a daily sleeper, but keep in mind he's facing a pitcher that has a 2.70 ERA in three starts this season.

Diamondbacks | Jean Segura continues to produce

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 11:40:57 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS/2B Jean Segura is among the league leaders in hits, three-hit games, multi-hit games and total bases, and he has 28 hits in the first 20 games of the year, which is the most by an Arizona player since OF Justin Upton had 28 in 2008. Segura is batting .324 with five RBI in his last seven games and is hitting .367 at home.

Fantasy Tip: It's a great start for Segura and his owners, but it won't last at this rate. For one, he's already hit half of his home run total from last year, and his .352 batting average on balls in play (BAPIB) is well over his career norm. Now would be the right time to sell high on Segura.
