Reds | Mike Leake strong against Bucs

Tue, 05 May 2015 21:50:44 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake is scheduled to face the Pittsburgh Pirates Wednesday, May 6. He is 4-0 with a 2.95 ERA over his past nine outings against the Pirates.

Fantasy Tip: Normally Leake ($4,700; 9.4% of cap) would be a good play in FantasyScore, but he is up against Gerrit Cole ($8,700; 17.4% of cap) who won the National League Pitcher of the Month for April.

Reds | Todd Frazier leads NL in homers

Tue, 05 May 2015 21:50:19 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 3B Todd Frazier went 2-for-5 with a solo home run Tuesday, May 5, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. The homer was his National League-leading ninth of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Frazier ($5,500; 11.0% of cap) is a fantastic power source for FantasyScore players compared to others at the hot corner.

Reds | Marlon Byrd starting to awaken

Tue, 05 May 2015 21:49:49 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Marlon Byrd went 2-for-5 with a double, home run and four RBIs Tuesday, May 5, against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Fantasy Tip: Byrd ($2,700; 5.4% of cap) hit just .163 in the month of April with 25 strikeouts and just 13 hits, but he has turned it around lately with back-to-back multi-hit performances.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco likely to need surgery

Tue, 05 May 2015 14:07:26 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) is likely to require surgery on his hip that would need a four-month recovery. However, he's trying to do all possible treatments in the meantime.

Fantasy Tip: It's looking increasingly likely that Mesoraco ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) might not due his fantasy owners any good in 2015 at all. If you haven't already, you'll need to find a capable catching replacement for Mesoraco in standard leagues. Brayan Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a low-end catching matchup play at FantasyScore.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco hasn't tested hip

Tue, 05 May 2015 13:15:16 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) has yet to test his injured hip by squatting, and he's still trying to avoid surgery, which would cost him four months of rehab. Mesoraco will see at-bats as the designated hitter when the team plays the Chicago White Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) last played Sunday, and it looks like he'll avoid the disabled list for now. But you should avoid him at FantasyScore for the foreseeable future or until he's back in the lineup on a regular basis and catching. Brayan Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a low-cost consideration against right-handed pitchers in the meantime.

Reds | Marlon Byrd hitting second

Tue, 05 May 2015 13:01:14 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Marlon Byrd is hitting second in the lineup Tuesday, May 5, against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Fantasy Tip: Byrd ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is getting a slot higher in the lineup with Zack Cozart out due to an injured finger. He may be worth a pickup due to his lower cost and getting more at-bats in the game.

Reds | Zack Cozart not in Tuesday lineup

Tue, 05 May 2015 12:42:57 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart (finger, wrist) is not in the lineup Tuesday, May 5, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. SS Kristopher Negron is in the lineup and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Cozart ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) from your lineup until he is 100 percent healthy. It may be just another game or two. Negron ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) may be a way to save a bit of money and spend it other places, and he might be a good low-cost alternative.

Reds | Joey Votto swinging more

Tue, 05 May 2015 11:46:39 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto is taking 58.8% of pitches thrown at him and seeing 4.24 pitches per plate appearance, but he's also swinging at more than 70% of pitches inside the strike zone in 2015 for the first time since his MVP season in 2010, per FanGraphs. He's hitting .385 with a 1.154 OPS when he swings at the first pitch, which he's doing 4.8% more often than he did in 2013.

Fantasy Tip: The most important thing for Votto ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) appears to be that he's fully healthy after seeing his power sapped due to injuries in the last couple of years. He looks primed for a rebound season, and you should feel very comfortable rolling with him at FantasyScore right now.

Reds | Johnny Cueto will become free agent

Mon, 04 May 2015 09:44:33 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto hasn't had contract extension talks with the team since opening day, and he will become a free agent after the 2015 season.

Fantasy Tip: Cueto ($8,700, 17.4% of cap) has a 2.72 ERA and two wins in six starts this year despite allowing five earned runs in six innings to the Atlanta Braves yesterday. He'll continue to be a strong FantasyScore pitching option every five days

Reds | Jason Marquis should make next start

Sun, 03 May 2015 14:18:27 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Jason Marquis (forearm) was fine Sunday, May 3, one day after taking a line drive off his right forearm. Manager Bryan Price said Marquis should make his next start.

Fantasy Tip: Marquis ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has a high 5.22 ERA but is 3-1 in four decisions with nine walks and 28 strikeouts. He is a decent low-cost option depending on the pitching matchup.

Reds | Johnny Cueto roughed up

Sun, 03 May 2015 14:13:24 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto allowed five runs on nine hits in six innings of work as the Reds fell to the Atlanta Braves, 5-0, on Sunday, May 3.

Fantasy Tip: Cueto ($8,700, 17.4% of cap) just had a bad day. All five of his starts prior to this have been good, so don't hesitate to start him again next time out.

Reds | Zack Cozart injured

Sun, 03 May 2015 13:58:57 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart (finger) bruised his right index finger fielding a ground ball Sunday, May 3, against the Atlanta Braves. He left the game. X-rays were negative.

Fantasy Tip: Cozart ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) may miss a game, but the odds are equally good he'll be all right for the next contest. Keep an eye on his progress.

Reds | Skip Schumaker starting

Sun, 03 May 2015 09:34:40 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Skip Schumaker will be the starting left fielder against the Atlanta Braves Sunday, May 3, and is batting first in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Schumaker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has not received many starts this season and has four hits in 20 at-bats. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options to use for their lineups.

Reds | Brennan Boesch will play Sunday

Sun, 03 May 2015 09:30:30 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Brennan Boesch will be the starting center fielder against the Atlanta Braves Sunday, May 3.

Fantasy Tip: Boesch ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has not done much at the plate in his limited playing time this season and should not be a starting option for owners on FantasyScore.

Reds | Marlon Byrd sitting out

Sun, 03 May 2015 09:20:12 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Marlon Byrd is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 3.

Fantasy Tip: Byrd ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has struggled at the plate this season and likely is receiving a day off. Skip Schumaker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will receive a rare start but is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.
