Diamondbacks | A.J. Pollock hitting cleanup Tuesday

Tue, 26 May 2015 16:10:22 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF A.J. Pollock is hitting cleanup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia Tuesday, May 26. OF David Peralta will start the game on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Pollock ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) looks a bit more attractive to FantasyScore users in a run-producing spot in the lineup behind Paul Goldschmidt. Pollock is hitting .417 (15-for-36) with a home run and six RBI against southpaws this year, making him an attractive player tonight. Garcia is making just his second start of the season, too.

Diamondbacks | Enrique Burgos to DL

Tue, 26 May 2015 13:37:57 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks RP Enrique Burgos (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day disabled list due to right shoulder tendonitis Tuesday, May 26. The team recalled RP Vidal Nuno from Class AAA Reno in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: With Brad Ziegler locking down the closing job for the time being, coupled with Burgos' injury, you can drop him in most fantasy formats now. Addison Reed could eventually work his way back into ninth-inning duties, but it'll likely take a stumble from Ziegler for that to happen.

Mon, 25 May 2015 12:24:59 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF David Peralta will be the starting left fielder against the St. Louis Cardinals Monday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has at least one hit in only five of his last 11 games but is hitting .246 in May. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find a better option to use in their lineups.

Diamondbacks | A.J. Pollock will not start

Mon, 25 May 2015 12:12:52 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF A.J. Pollock is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Pollock ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) should return to the starting lineup in the near future. David Peralta ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) will take his placed in the starting lineup but may not be the best option for owners on FantasyScore.

Diamondbacks | Bronson Arroyo to throw bullpen

Mon, 25 May 2015 02:02:53 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Bronson Arroyo (elbow) will throw his first bullpen session in 10 months on Tuesday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: Arroyo ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) could give Arizona's rotation a much-needed jolt in the next few weeks. Monitor his progress and allow some extra time for him to settle in once activated.

Diamondbacks | Jordan Pacheco catching Sunday

Sun, 24 May 2015 12:22:03 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Jordan Pacheco is starting behind the plate against the Chicago Cubs Sunday, May 24. C Tuffy Gosewisch is getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Pacheco ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is only batting .207 during the month of May. Unless you're a FantasyScore owner looking for salary cap relief at the backstop position, look elsewhere.

Diamondbacks | Yasmany Tomas not in lineup Sunday

Sun, 24 May 2015 11:55:37 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Yasmany Tomas is not in the starting lineup against the Chicago Cubs Sunday, May 24. INF Aaron Hill will start at third base, with INF Chris Owings starting at second base.

Fantasy Tip: Tomas ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is receiving the day off, despite batting .406 with five RBIs over the last seven days. Hill ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has struggled of late, with three hits in his last 18 at-bats, while Owings ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has been even worse, with only two hits in his last 24 at-bats.

Diamondbacks | David Peralta draws in

Sat, 23 May 2015 14:34:54 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF David Peralta will start in left field and bat cleanup Saturday, May 23, against the Chicago Cubs. OF Ender Inciarte will be available off the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) continues to be an adequate play against right-handed pitchers. Batting behind A.J Pollock, Mark Trumbo and Paul Goldschmidt, Peralta will have plenty of potential to drive in runs, making him an intriguing FantasyScore choice for GPP tournaments.

Diamondbacks | Aaron Hill starting at 2B

Sat, 23 May 2015 14:30:27 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Aaron Hill will start at second base and hit sixth in the order Saturday, May 23, against the Chicago Cubs.

Fantasy Tip: Hill ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is 0-for-his-last-13, and he has hit just .246 against right-handers this season. Hill should be avoided on FantasyScore against RHP Jake Arrieta.

Diamondbacks | Mark Trumbo hitting second

Sat, 23 May 2015 14:18:43 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Mark Trumbo will hit out of the two-hole Saturday, May 23, against the Chicago Cubs.

Fantasy Tip: Trumbo ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has gone 5-for-26 in his last six games, making it odd that he's now jumping up the batting order. Against a tough right-handed pitcher in Jake Arrieta, Trumbo should be avoided on FantasyScore.

Diamondbacks | Yasmany Tomas drops weight

Sat, 23 May 2015 13:44:43 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Yasmany Tomas appears to have dropped a little weight, as he is down to 250 pounds. He also has a better batting average (.349) than he did in spring training.

Fantasy Tip: Tomas ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) looks like he has dropped a little weight and it may have affected his batting average and overall performance. He remains a decent start at this low price.

Diamondbacks | A.J. Pollock has another big night

Sat, 23 May 2015 06:22:02 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF A.J. Pollock went 4-for-6 with two runs, a double and a triple during the Diamondback's 5-4 win over the Chicago Cubs Friday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: Dating back to Wednesday, May 6, Pollock ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has 15 runs, three home runs, eight RBI and six stolen bases with a .359/.397/.594 slash line. FantasyScore players will want to note two things. First, his .400 BABIP is due to drop closer to the norm, and Pollock's stat line will level off. However, seven of his last 23 hits have gone for extra bases, so he is a great play in points formats, like daily contests.

Diamondbacks | Paul Goldschmidt does it all

Sat, 23 May 2015 05:59:31 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt hit a game-tying ninth-inning home run against the Chicago Cubs Friday, May 23, and he finished the game 3-for-5 with three RBI and two stolen bases.

Fantasy Tip: Goldschmidt ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) is up to 31 runs, 11 home runs, 35 RBI and eight stolen bases to go with a .331/.429/.623 slash line. Continue to target him in FantasyScore contests as a lineup building block, and especially when facing a favorable matchup.

Diamondbacks | Patrick Corbin pushed back

Fri, 22 May 2015 15:31:11 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin (elbow) has been pushed back due to soreness after his last extended spring outing, and he is unlikely to return June 4, according to manager David Hale.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to stash Corbin in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, but he won't be an immediate must-start arm when he returns. It would be wise to be patient with him in all formats, and especially in FantasyScore contests. Continue to check back for updates on Corbin's recovery and a new timeline for his return.

Cubs | Junior Lake starting vs. Diamondbacks

Fri, 22 May 2015 14:57:36 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Junior Lake is starting in left field and batting sixth against the Arizona Diamondbacks Friday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: Lake is a viable flier for cap relief in daily contests Friday, but he isn't without risk. He has just 15 plate appearances at the highest level this season, and he is only a career .244 hitter.
