Reds | Jason Marquis in danger?

Thu, 21 May 2015 00:17:58 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Jason Marquis was pulled from his start Wednesday, May 20, against the Kansas City Royals after 3 2/3 innings. Marquis allowed four runs, four hits, two sacrifice flies, two walks and a wild pitch.

Fantasy Tip: Reds manager Bryan Price did not say whether Marquis ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) would stay in the rotation, saying the whole team hasn't done well in his starts. Still, in losing his past three starts, Marquis has surrendered 21 hits and 15 runs in 12 1/3 innings for a 15.33 ERA. He is not worth the trouble, even at the lower price.

Reds | Brayan Pena resting Wednesday

Wed, 20 May 2015 14:51:03 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 20. C Tucker Barnhart is starting and hitting ninth in the batting order against Kansas City Royals SP Jeremy Guthrie.

Fantasy Tip: Barnhart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) does have two home runs and a .308 average (8-for-26) in a small sample size, but he should remain a low-end catching commodity at FantasyScore.

Reds | Brandon Phillips in two-hole

Wed, 20 May 2015 14:48:01 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips is hitting second in the batting order against Kansas City Royals SP Jeremy Guthrie Wednesday, May 20.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has been hot in the month of May (.346/.424/.404) with a home run and seven RBI in 52 at-bats for the Reds. He's also 4-for-6 with a double and home run in his career against Guthrie. Phillips could be a nice value pick in daily games this evening.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco works on catching stance

Tue, 19 May 2015 18:48:58 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) squatted around 15 times behind the plate before the game Tuesday, May 19, and made around also made some light throws to second base. Mesoraco has not been the starting catcher since April 12 and has considered surgery if the injury does not improve with treatment and therapy.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has been limited to being a pinch hitter and a designated hitter for the last month and does not appear to be close to playing regularly. Owners on FantasyScore probably should avoid using Mesoraco until he sees more playing time.

Reds | Jay Bruce dropped to seventh

Tue, 19 May 2015 15:49:02 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce is hitting seventh in the batting order against Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura Tuesday, May 19.

Fantasy Tip: Bruce ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is still under .200 (24-for-126) on the season, but he does have seven home runs and 19 RBI. The good news is that he's 7-for-24 (.292) with two homers since May 11, and the matchup is in his favor while facing the struggling Ventura. However, Bruce is a boom-or-bust FantasyScore selection.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco the DH Tuesday

Tue, 19 May 2015 15:46:00 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) is serving as the designated hitter and hitting eighth in the batting order against Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura Tuesday, May 19.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has been kept out of the lineup for most of the season with a hip injury, but this week in an American League park he should see time as the DH, making him relevant once again at FantasyScore. Against the struggling Ventura, Mesoraco could make for a sneaky sleeper pick tonight.

Reds | Brayan Pena in two-hole against KC

Tue, 19 May 2015 15:40:50 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena is hitting second in the batting order against Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura Tuesday, May 19.

Fantasy Tip: Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting a robust .337 (29-for-86) with no home runs and four RBI this year, including .397 (23-for-58) against right-handed hurlers. Ventura has struggled in 2015 and lefty swingers have an .821 OPS against him this year. With a spot at the top of the order, Pena is an intriguing value play at a weak position.

Reds | Billy Hamilton dropped to ninth

Tue, 19 May 2015 15:36:39 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton has been dropped to ninth in the batting order against Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura Tuesday, May 19.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) really isn't doing anything for FantasyScore users aside from stealing bases, which he has 17 of in 19 tries. A move to the bottom of the order permanently will make him very unattractive for his price unless he starts getting on base more often.

Reds | Billy Hamilton dropped to eighth

Sun, 17 May 2015 07:53:35 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton was dropped to eighth in the order Sunday, May 17, against the San Francisco Giants. C Brayan Pena will hit out of the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) will have his potential greatly reduced while hitting so low in the batting order. Hamilton can still be a threat on the bases, but his ability to score runs will be greatly reduced.

Reds | Jay Bruce ends homer drought

Sat, 16 May 2015 19:35:51 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in an 11-2 loss to the San Francisco Giants Saturday, May 16, ending a 13-game homerless drought.

Fantasy Tip: Bruce ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has been enduring a miserable year, and he is hitting .163 with four RBIs in 13 games this month. He needs to be avoided at FantasyScore until he shows some consistency at the plate.

Reds | Zack Cozart leading off

Sat, 16 May 2015 13:26:13 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart is hitting leadoff Saturday, May 16, with OF Billy Hamilton taking the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Cozart ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has hit well all season and is hitting .381-1-5 in the last seven days. He's a good midrange option on FantasyScore.

Reds | Billy Hamilton sitting out

Sat, 16 May 2015 13:22:18 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton is out of the lineup Saturday, May 16, in favor of OF Brennan Boesch.

Fantasy Tip: Boesch ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a low-end flyer without a lot of luster on FantasyScore.

Reds | Brennan Boesch starting Saturday

Sat, 16 May 2015 11:07:49 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Brennan Boesch is in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong Saturday, May 16. He will play center field and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Boesch ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is starting in place of Billy Hamilton ($5,000, 10.0% of cap), who is batting just .212 against right-handed pitching this season. Despite Boesch's low price tag, you should avoid using him in FantasyScore tonight because of his lack of offensive production.

Reds | Tucker Barnhart catching Saturday

Sat, 16 May 2015 10:44:14 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Tucker Barnhart is starting behind the plate against the San Francisco Giants Saturday, May 16.

Fantasy Tip: Barnhart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is batting .304 through 23 at-bats this season, with a pair of home runs and three RBIs. He is an intriguing catching option for FantasyScore owners who would rather spend their money at other positions.

Reds | Brandon Phillips returns to lineup

Fri, 15 May 2015 11:29:27 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Phillips ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is back in the lineup after missing the previous two games. He is hitting .385 during May and has recorded five RBI and five stolen bases in that span. Owners on FantasyScore could consider using Phillips in their lineups.
