Reds | Tony Cingrani a rotation option

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 14:13:34 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Tony Cingrani (shoulder) is an option for the starting rotation, according to manager Bryan Price.

Fantasy Tip: Cingrani began a rehab assignment at Class AAA Louisville and threw two innings in relief Friday. The team plans to stretch him out down there, and he could take a rotation spot if they trade Johnny Cueto by July 31. Cingrani is an NL-only add and one to watch in mixed leagues.

Reds | Brayan Pena catching Saturday

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 12:31:43 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena will bat fifth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson Saturday, July 4.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners looking for a low-cost catching option tonight may want to consider Pena ($2,900, 5.8% of cap). He is batting .462 through 13 at-bats against Milwaukee this season and is 3-for-7 versus Nelson in his career.

Reds | Billy Hamilton back to ninth

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 09:15:45 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton is returning to ninth in the batting order against Minnesota Twins SP Trevor May Wednesday, July 1, with 2B Brandon Phillips (thumb, hand) returning after sitting out several games.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is hitting only .224 (58-for-259) but leads all of baseball with 40 stolen bases, which has kept him relevant in fantasy baseball. He loses a little luster on FantasyScore hitting ninth, but he can still make a big impact if he can just manage to get on base several times.

Reds | Brandon Phillips returns

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 08:07:36 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (thumb, hand) returned to the lineup Wednesday, July 1, hitting leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: BP ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has hit safely in seven straight and faces Trevor May and his 4.62 ERA. Phillips is a solid midrange second baseman on FantasyScore.

Reds | Brayan Pena out Tuesday

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 10:56:39 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena is out of the lineup for the second straight day Tuesday, June 30. C Tucker Barnhart receives another start and is hitting seventh against Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes.

Fantasy Tip: Barnhart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) recorded four hits last night and is batting .308 (24-for-78) in a backup role this year. The switch-hitting catcher has excelled against righties in 2015 (.344/.386/.547) but remains a low-end sleeper play that'll give you cap relief.

Reds | Billy Hamilton back at leadoff

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 10:53:51 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton is back in the leadoff spot for the second straight day against Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes Tuesday, June 30, with 2B Brandon Phillips (thumb, hand) sidelined.

Fantasy Tip: Despite his .224 average (57-for-254), Hamilton ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) remains a valuable daily commodity because of his speed, and hitting at the top of the lineup maximizes his potential. He stole four bases last night and became the first player this year to reach 40 steals.

Reds | Brandon Phillips out again

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 10:51:55 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (thumb, hand) is out of the lineup for the second straight day Tuesday, June 30. 2B Ivan De Jesus is starting at the keystone and hitting second against Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes.

Fantasy Tip: De Jesus ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) had two hits last night but doesn't own much power and remains mainly a source of salary cap relief for the rest of your FantasyScore lineup.

Reds | Eugenio Suarez has big game

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 22:21:29 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Eugenio Suarez had three hits with a double, three RBIs and two stolen bases Monday, June 29, against the Minnesota Twins.

Fantasy Tip: Suarez ($2,700; or 5.4% of cap) has filled in admirably for the injured Zack Cozart. Keep rolling with him in FantasyScore, as he is hitting a respectable .316 on the season.

Reds | Tucker Barnhart sets career best

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 22:20:39 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Tucker Barnhart had a career-high four hits Monday, June 29, against the Minnesota Twins. He had a double with a run scored and two RBIs.

Fantasy Tip: Barnhart ($1,600; or 3.2% of cap) exceeded all FantasyScore expectations with his four-hit game, but don't look for this to be a regular happening.

Reds | Billy Hamilton runs Minnesota ragged

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 22:20:00 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton went 2-for-4 with a pair of walks, three runs scored and four stolen bases Monday, June 29, against the Minnesota Twins.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($3,700; or 7.4% of cap) is hitting just .224 on the season, but he showed how dangerous he can be if he gets on base regularly.

Reds | Brandon Phillips not a DL candidate

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 13:50:07 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (thumb, hands) is dealing with injuries to both of his hands, and he aggravated a left thumb injuring swinging Sunday, June 28. There is nothing to indicate that Phillips is in danger of landing on the disabled list, although he's not playing Monday, June 29. Phillips is riding a six-game hitting streak and is batting .300 (71-for-237) since April 12. He tested his hands before the game Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has five home runs, 30 RBI and also 11 stolen bases in 2015 and has been a very nice value play the past couple of months. Ivan De Jesus ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is a desperation source of salary cap relief for daily gamers.

Reds | Raisel Iglesias to make rehab start

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 13:40:35 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Raisel Iglesias (oblique) is set to make a rehab start for Class AAA Louisville Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Iglesias ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) had a 5.11 ERA and 1.46 WHIP in four starts for the Reds before going on the DL. Oblique injuries are tricky, so he's likely to need at least several rehab starts before Cincy considers returning him to the starting rotation. You can leave Iglesias on the waiver wire in shallow mixed leagues.

Reds | Tucker Barnhart starting vs. Twins

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 12:16:28 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Tucker Barnhart is starting behind the plate and batting seventh against Minnesota Twins SP Mike Pelfrey Monday, June 29. C Brayan Pena is not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Barnhart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is 8-for-15 over his last four games with a 1.296 OPS. It is a small sample size, but he stands out as a solid upside source of cap relief for FantasyScore players Monday. Pena ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has only started three of the past seven games, and the catching situation is worth monitoring for owners in cavernous mixed, NL-only and two-catcher formats.

Reds | Brandon Phillips out of the lineup

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 12:07:51 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (hand) is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 29. 2B Ivan De Jesus is starting at the keystone and batting second against Minnesota Twins SP Mike Pelfrey Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Phillips ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) in all formats Monday. His frequent injuries are becoming a real damper on what has been a bounce-back campaign from the veteran. De Jesus ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has played sparingly, and he is currently sporting a 6-for-34 run with 12 strikeouts and a .458 OPS. FantasyScore players shouldn't view De Jesus as anything more than a desperation source of cap relief Monday.

Reds | Billy Hamilton batting leadoff

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 12:03:32 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton is batting first against Minnesota Twins SP Mike Pelfrey Monday, June 29.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has a .250 on-base percentage over his past 12 games with five stolen bases. He has huge upside because of his speed, but Hamilton is a risky FantasyScore play because he is struggling to reach base consistently. Batting leadoff is a value boost, though.
