Reds | Todd Frazier caps great week

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 10:27:17 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 3B Todd Frazier hit .500 with four doubles, four home runs, a .560 on-base percentage and a 1.227 slugging percentage.

Fantasy Tip: Frazier ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) is showing that his breakout 2014 was no fluke, and he already has 16 home runs and 31 RBI after hitting 29 long balls last year. Frazier will continue to be a popular and strong selection on FantasyScore.

Reds | Johnny Cueto could start Tuesday

Sun, 31 May 2015 11:19:09 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto (elbow) threw a successful bullpen session Sunday, May 31, and believes he could start against the Philadelphia Phillies Tuesday, June 2.

Fantasy Tip: If Cueto ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) suffers a setback and is unable to pitch Tuesday, manager Bryan Price said Mike Leake ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) would move up his next scheduled start by one day. Even though the Phils' offense is not intimidating, it would make sense to avoid using Cueto in FantasyScore in his first start back from injury.

Reds | Brayan Pena will not start

Sun, 31 May 2015 08:36:44 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 31. C Tucker Barnhart will be the starting catcher for the Reds.

Fantasy Tip: Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has been the regular catcher and is probably receiving a day off. Barnhart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) hit a home run in his last start and is batting .250 in limited playing time this season, but owners on FantasyScore should be able to find a better option.

Reds | Skip Schumaker receives start

Sun, 31 May 2015 08:34:02 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Skip Schumaker is starting in left field Sunday, May 31.

Fantasy Tip: Schumaker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has picked up four hits in his last seven games and is hitting .270 this month. Schumaker is one of the cheaper players available on FantasyScore, but owners should be able to find better options to use.

Reds | Marlon Byrd on the bench

Sun, 31 May 2015 08:23:40 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Marlon Byrd is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 31.

Fantasy Tip: Byrd ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) likely is receiving a day off after playing in each of the last six games. Skip Schumaker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is taking his place in the lineup but is not a great option on FantasyScore.

Reds | Billy Hamilton starting to come around

Sat, 30 May 2015 19:05:35 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton extended his hitting streak to six games, finishing 2-for-4 with a run scored, two RBIs and stolen base in an 8-5 win over the Washington Nationals Saturday, May 30.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has struggled to reach base all year, but he is starting to show signs of life at the plate. He has also scored a run and stolen a base in each of the last three games. His speed gives him solid upside at FantasyScore, and now isn't a bad time to gamble on him since he is hitting for a change.

Reds | Joey Votto warming back up

Sat, 30 May 2015 18:58:53 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBIs and two runs scored in an 8-5 win over the Washington Nationals Saturday, May 30, and he is 3-for-7 with two home runs, three RBIs and three runs scored over his past two games.

Fantasy Tip: Votto ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) had been ice cold this month, and he had zero home runs and just four RBIs prior to his last two games. He isn't entering must-start territory yet at FantasyScore, but he should no longer be considered off limits either.

Reds | Todd Frazier thriving at home

Fri, 29 May 2015 19:58:15 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 3B Todd Frazier hit his 15th home run of the year Friday, May 29, in a 5-2 win over the Washington Nationals, and 10 of his 15 home runs this year have come at home.

Fantasy Tip: Dating back to last year, 30 of his 44 homers have come at home, and considering he plays home games in one of more hitter-friendly parks, it should come as no surprise that Frazier ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) is a more valuable FantasyScore commodity when playing at Great American Ball Park.

Reds | Johnny Cueto to return next week?

Fri, 29 May 2015 15:30:07 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto (elbow) remains out with inflammation in his right elbow, and manager Bryan Price said the earliest Cueto would return would be during a series against the Philadelphia Phillies next week. Cueto has now missed two turns through the rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Cueto ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) could be a risky commodity at FantasyScore even if he returns to face the offensively inept Phillies next week after missing his last two starts. Tread carefully and continue to monitor his progress.

Reds | Jason Marquis moving to 'pen

Fri, 29 May 2015 15:14:26 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Jason Marquis is being moved from the starting rotation to the bullpen after going 3-4 with a 6.46 ERA in nine starts this year. He allowed four runs and 10 hits in 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the Colorado Rockies Monday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: The move of Marquis to the bullpen is expected to open up a rotation spot for Raisel Iglesias ($3,700, 7.4% of cap), who gave up just two earned runs in three innings in a loss to the Cleveland Indians Sunday. Give Iglesias more time to build up his innings before trusting him at FantasyScore. He's strictly an NL-only arm for now.

Reds | Brandon Phillips remains out

Fri, 29 May 2015 12:40:40 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (toe) is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 29. 2B Skip Schumaker is scheduled to start at second base for the Reds.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has not been in the starting lineup for three straight games, so owners should monitor the situation. Schumaker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is batting .242 this month, but owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options.

Reds | Zack Cozart leading off

Fri, 29 May 2015 12:27:57 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart is batting first in the starting lineup Friday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: Cozart ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has been on a bit of a cold streak with only two hits in his last eight games. Owners on FantasyScore may want to look for other options to use in their lineups.

Reds | Signs of life from Jay Bruce?

Thu, 28 May 2015 19:09:57 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce has hit safely in nine of his last 10 games, raising his average from .174 to .226.

Fantasy Tip: Bruce ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has five multi-hit games during the same stretch and is striking out less. He still isn't producing enough to demand you attention at FantasyScore, but he could be a nice buy-low candidate in seasonal leagues.

Reds | Brayan Pena resting Wednesday

Wed, 27 May 2015 09:19:36 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 27. C Tucker Barnhart is starting and hitting seventh in the batting order against Colorado Rockies SP Kyle Kendrick.

Fantasy Tip: Barnhart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a very weak FantasyScore catching option, even against Kendrick, who is 0-3 with a 13 earned runs in 25 1/3 innings in his four starts in May.

Rockies | Rafael Ynoa batting second vs. Reds

Wed, 27 May 2015 07:16:06 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Rafael Ynoa is batting second and playing left field against the Cincinnati Reds Wednesday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Through 114 career at-bats, Ynoa ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) sports a .325 batting average and 11 runs and 17 RBI. Hitting in front of the team's top three hitters is plus-spot in the lineup, and Ynoa is worth considering as a low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests Wednesday.
