Reds | Robert Stephenson unlikely for Sunday

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 15:23:24 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Robert Stephenson is unlikely to join the rotation and start against the Pittsburgh Pirates Sunday, Aug. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Stephenson is the Reds' top pitching prospect and is a potential candidate to join the rotation at some point this season. However, he only has made five starts at the Class AAA level, so it is likely he'll require a little more minor league seasoning. He is an arm to watch, though, and a potential stash candidate in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues.

Reds | Jay Bruce out of the starting lineup

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 12:29:15 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 31. It is a planned night off and does not mean he will be traded.

Fantasy Tip: Jason Bourgeois ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) draws into the lineup in place of Bruce ($5,200, 10.4% of cap), and Bourgeois will bat second against Pirates SP Jeff Locke ($5,600, 11.2% of cap). Bourgeois is a worthy low-priced flier for FantasyScore players Friday, especially at his cap hit. Stay tuned on the Bruce trade front.

Reds | 50-50 chance Aroldis Chapman is traded

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 10:21:52 -0700

Cincinnati Reds RP Aroldis Chapman has a 50-50 chance of being traded, according to an official from a team involved in talks for Chapman.

Fantasy Tip: Chapman remains an elite fantasy closer wherever he's pitching. Owners in need of saves should immediately add J.J. Hoover, as he's the likely replacement in the ninth inning for the Reds if they do indeed trade Chapman.

Reds | Several teams want Aroldis Chapman

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 08:24:33 -0700

Cincinnati Reds RP Aroldis Chapman is being eyed by the Arizona Diamondbacks, Houston Astros, San Francisco Giants and New York Yankees. The Yankees appear to be more involved with San Diego Padres RP Craig Kimbrel, though.

Fantasy Tip: Chapman is one of the most dominant closers in the game and is an elite fantasy fireman. That won't change if he's dealt to a new team. J.J. Hoover would be the likely replacement in the ninth for the Reds, so stash him now if you're looking for more saves.

Reds | Mike Leake sent to SF

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 08:08:02 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake was traded to the San Francisco Giants Thursday, July 30, in exchange for 3B Adam Duvall and P Keury Mella.

Fantasy Tip: With Leake out of the Cincy rotation, another spot opens up. Is it possible the Reds will recall top pitching prospect Robert Stephenson to fill the spot? Dynasty and keeper league owners should already be all over Stephenson, and those in deep mixed leagues may want to follow suit.

Reds | Jay Bruce to the Mets?

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 06:21:10 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce was the focus of overnight trade talks Friday, July 31, with the New York Mets. Industry sources expect the deal will happen.

Fantasy Tip: Bruce ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) has been on a tear of late, with 10 RBI in his last five games. Citi Field is among the best parks for hitters, but the lineup could negatively impact Bruce's fantasy worth.

Reds | Mike Leake market narrowing

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 21:25:15 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake is expected to be traded to the San Francisco Giants or New York Yankees.

Fantasy Tip: Leake ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) has been a bargain at FantasyScore lately, and if he is traded, staying in the NL with the Giants would likely allow him to maintain his current fantasy value.

Reds | Jay Bruce on a tear

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 21:19:36 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce went 1-for-4 with three RBI in a 15-5 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates Thursday, July 30, and he has had at least one RBI in five straight games.

Fantasy Tip: Bruce ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) has 10 RBI during the streak, but with his name being mentioned in trade rumors, he is a risky option at FantasyScore Friday with the trade deadline looming.

Reds | Career night for Brandon Phillips

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 20:54:46 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips went 4-for-5 with two home runs, two runs scored, two steals and a career-high seven RBI in a 15-5 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) had just two RBI the entire month entering Thursday's game and none in his last 11 games. Needless to say, you can't expect him to duplicate this type of production, and he remains a below average play at FantasyScore.

Pirates | Gregory Polanco starting vs. Reds

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 13:03:34 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco (knee) is playing right field and batting first against Cincinnati Reds SP David Holmberg Thursday, July 30. Polanco was removed in the fourth inning of the game Wednesday, July 29, against the Minnesota Twins due to discomfort in his left knee.

Fantasy Tip: Polanco ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) might not be as speedy on the base paths due to the knee discomfort, so his FantasyScore value takes a hit Thursday, and he should be viewed as a high-risk, high-reward option for contests. Seasonal owners should be happy to see him right back in the lineup, though.

Reds | Brayan Pena resting Thursday

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 10:59:04 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 30. C Tucker Barnhart is catching and hitting seventh against Pittsburgh Pirates SP A.J. Burnett.

Fantasy Tip: You can do much better than Barnhart ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) as your FantasyScore catcher tonight, unless you're desperate for some salary cap relief in order to fit studs at other positions.

Reds | Todd Frazier sitting

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 10:56:45 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 3B Todd Frazier is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 30. 2B Ivan De Jesus is starting at the hot corner and is hitting second against Pittsburgh Pirates SP A.J. Burnett.

Fantasy Tip: De Jesus ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is in a good lineup position to capitalize in daily games, but he remains a low-end second base option against the savvy vet Burnett.

Reds | Anthony DeSclafani tosses up donut

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 22:52:40 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani allowed just three hits and three walks over seven scoreless innings in a win Wednesday, July 29, against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: DeSclafani ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) was surprisingly effective for FantasyScore players, but looking at his splits he is usually better on the road than at Great American Ball Park. He is 4-2 with a 2.41 ERA in 11 road outings, while he is 2-5 with a 5.69 ERA in nine home starts.

Reds | Jay Bruce moving up team list

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 22:52:00 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce belted a solo home run Wednesday, July 29, against the St. Louis Cardinals, providing all of the offense in a 1-0 win. It was his 199th homer, moving him past Hall of Famer Barry Larkin into ninth place on the team's all-time homers list.

Fantasy Tip: The homer could be Bruce's last in a Cincinnati uniform, as his name has been bandied about in many trade rumors. Over the course of the next few days it might be prudent to avoid Bruce ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) and his high salary in FantasyScore in case he is moved.

Reds | Aroldis Chapman likely to stay with Reds

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 14:14:05 -0700

Cincinnati Reds RP Aroldis Chapman is not expected to be traded. The list of teams interested in trading for him has shrunk dramatically, which has made the likelihood of him being dealt slim.

Fantasy Tip: Chapman remains a top-tier closer regardless of his jersey, so continue to view him as such. For the year, he has three wins and 20 saves with a 1.69 ERA, a 1.62 FIP, a 1.22 WHIP and a 15.8 K/9.
