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.

Diamondbacks | Yasmany Tomas sitting vs. Brewers

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 15:43:26 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Yasmany Tomas is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 24. OF David Peralta (head) is playing left field and batting fourth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson Friday. Peralta was hit in the batting helmet by a 97 mph fastball from Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez Wednesday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: The Diamondbacks four-man shuffle in the outfield claims Tomas ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) as the victim Friday. He is worth owning in all formats, but his value takes a slight hit with Peralta ($4,400, 8.8% of cap), Ender Inciarte ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) and A.J. Pollock ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) all healthy. Peralta is worth considering as a mid-tier outfielder at FantasyScore, and he should also be owned in the majority of fantasy leagues.

Diamondbacks | Chris Owings sitting down vs. Brewers

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 14:23:57 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Chris Owings is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 23. SS Cliff Pennington is playing second base and batting second against Milwaukee Brewers SP Mike Fiers Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Pennington ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) started Wednesday, July 22, at shortstop for Nick Ahmed ($3,400, 6.8% of cap), and Pennington went 0-for-3 with a walk. For the season, Pennington boasts a .236/.317/.282 slash line, so FantasyScore players should likely look elsewhere for cap relief Thursday.

Diamondbacks | Aaron Hill draws in against Brewers

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 14:03:32 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Aaron Hill is starting at third base and batting sixth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Mike Fiers Thursday, July 23. 3B Jake Lamb is not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Lamb ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has just three runs and five RBI with a .630 OPS over 15 games in July, so receiving a breather might help him kick-start his offense again. Hill ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has a .212 batting average and .294 on-base percentage over 136 plate appearances against righties this season, so FantasyScore players should view him as nothing more than a low-priced dice roll.

Diamondbacks | David Peralta sitting vs. Brewers

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 13:57:14 -0700

Updating a previous report, Arizona Diamondbacks OF David Peralta (head) is not in the starting lineup against the Milwaukee Brewers Thursday, July 23. He passed concussion tests Wednesday, July 22, after he was hit in the batting helmet by a 97 mph fastball from Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) will likely return to the lineup Friday, July 24. The Diamondbacks currently have a four-outfielder shuffle going with Peralta, A.J. Pollock ($5,700, 11.4% of cap), Yasmany Tomas ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) and Ender Inciarte ($3,900, 7.8% of cap). All four outfielders will receive at-bats, so it is a slight value drain to each when they're all healthy.

Diamondbacks | David Peralta passes concussion test

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 08:12:08 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF David Peralta (head) passed concussion tests Wednesday, July 22, and said he was fit to play Thursday, July 23.

Fantasy Tip: It makes sense to give Peralta ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) today off. It's possible he could wake up today and show symptoms of a concussion as well. Avoid on FantasyScore today.

Diamondbacks | David Peralta hit in the head

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 21:14:40 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF David Peralta (head) left the game Wednesday, July 22, against the Miami Marlins after being hit in the batting helmet by a 97 mph fastball from SP Jose Fernandez. Peralta was able to walk back to the dugout on his own.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta ($4,400; or 8.8% of cap) appeared to be fine, but it's uncertain if he will be forced to miss any time. FantasyScore players will want to see him play at least one full game without any setbacks before trusting him again.

Diamondbacks | Welington Castillo scratched

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 19:04:28 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo (hamstring) is dealing with a tight left hamstring and was scratched Wednesday, July 22, against the Miami Marlins. C Oscar Hernandez was the late substitute.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($2,000; or 4.0% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks.

Diamondbacks | Nick Ahmed sitting vs. Marlins

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 15:53:37 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 22. SS Cliff Pennington is playing shortstop and batting eighth against Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Ahmed ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. Pennington ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief by FantasyScore players, especially facing Fernandez ($8,800, 17.6% of cap)

Diamondbacks | No A.J. Pollock vs. Fish

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 15:45:10 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF A.J. Pollock is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Pollock ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) shouldn't have been on your FantasyScore radar against Jose Fernandez ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) anyway, but make sure you avoid him all the same. Pollock has stayed hot in July with 12 runs, two home runs, seven RBI, four stolen bases and a .344/.420/.525 slash line through 15 games. Pollock will likely continue to see the odd game off with Yasmany Tomas ($4,500, 9.0% of cap), David Peralta ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) and Ender Inciarte ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) all healthy.

Diamondbacks | Josh Collmenter might start Thu.

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 18:06:19 -0700

The Arizona Diamondbacks might use SP Josh Collmenter for the start Thursday, July 23, against the Milwaukee Brewers with SP Chase Anderson (triceps) ailing.

Fantasy Tip: Collmenter ($3,900; or 7.8% of cap) lost his rotation spot earlier in the season, but has worked in emergency situations before. He could be a sneaky low-end FantasyScore option in a home start against a poor opponent.
