Reds | Tucker Barnhart starting Tuesday

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 17:04:22 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Tucker Barnhart will start Tuesday, July 28, and he'll hit seventh in the order against LHP Jaime Garcia. C Brayan Pena comes out of the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Barnhart ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is hitting just .105 against lefties this season, and he should be avoided on FantasyScore.

Reds | Marlon Byrd out Tuesday

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 16:59:44 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Marlon Byrd is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, July 28, against the St. Louis Cardinals. OF Jason Bourgeois will start in left field and hit leadoff against LHP Jaime Garcia.

Fantasy Tip: Bourgeois ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is riding a three-game hit streak, but he's still hitting just .222 on the season, and he won't be worth consideration.

Reds | David Holmberg starting Thursday

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 14:03:59 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP David Holmberg will start Thursday, July 30, and enter the starting rotation for now. SP Robert Stephenson was not in consideration for the spot.

Fantasy Tip: Stephenson should already be on the radar of keeper and dynasty owners, and he could come up when rosters expand in September or if Cincy deals away another starting pitcher, such as Mike Leake. Holmberg was 7-6 with a 4.40 ERA and 1.54 WHIP in 17 starts (108 1/3 innings) for Class AAA Louisville this year. His 5.1 K/9 rate suggests he won't have much to offer for fantasy owners with the Reds.

Reds | Johnny Cueto dealt to KC

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 12:11:33 -0700

The Cincinnati Reds have acquired RP Brandon Finnegan and minor league Ps John Lamb and Cody Reed from the Kansas City Royals, in exchange for SP Johnny Cueto and cash considerations.

Fantasy Tip: Finnegan has been used exclusively as a reliever at the major league level but the Reds may opt to turn him back into a full-time starter, a role he excelled at in college. Lamb was 9-1 with a 2.67 ERA in 17 starts for Class AAA Omaha, while Reed was 7-7 with a 2.53 ERA in 18 games (15 starts) for Class AA Wichita. Of the three, Finnegan appears to have the most upside and should be added in NL-only leagues and monitored in deep mixed fantasy leagues.

Reds | CIN had interest in Zack Wheeler

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 10:14:53 -0700

The Cincinnati Reds are one of several teams that had expressed interest in trading for New York Mets SP Zack Wheeler, although no deal appears imminent, according to multiple major league sources.

Fantasy Tip: Wheeler is expected to be sidelined until the middle of the 2016 season as he recovers from Tommy John surgery but could be used by the Mets as trade bait for offensive help, given their starting pitching depth. He is worth stashing in deep keeper and dynasty fantasy leagues.

Reds | Joey Votto on hot streak

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 07:05:00 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto is hitting .548 since the All-Star break and has 10 hits in his last 17 at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: Votto ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has at least two hits in six of his last seven games with two home runs and three RBI during that span. Votto should be a nightly starting option in FantasyScore while he is on this hot streak.

Reds | Joey Votto hits 18th home run

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 06:55:32 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto went 3-for-5 with a solo home run during the Reds' 6-5 loss to the Colorado Rockies Friday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: Votto ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) entered the game with a .447/.567/.723 slash line with nine runs, four doubles, three home runs and six RBI over his past 13 games, and is clearly in fine form for the rest of his series at hitter-friendly Coors Field. Continue to view Votto as a high-end fantasy option in all formats until he cools back down at the dish.

Reds | Ivan De Jesus starting vs. Rockies

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 13:57:57 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Ivan De Jesus is starting at shortstop and batting sixth against Colorado Rockies SP Eddie Butler Friday, July 24. SS Eugenio Suarez is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Suarez ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has a solid .306/.344/.488 slash line through 130 plate appearances since taking over full-time duties at shortstop for the Reds. De Jesus ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) stands as an excellent source of cap relief with the game being played at hitter-friendly Coors Field.

Reds | Royals interested in Johnny Cueto?

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 08:21:35 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto could be a target of the Kansas City Royals, sources have told Jon Morosi of FOX Sports.

Fantasy Tip: Cueto ($8.900, 17.8% of cap) struggled in two straight starts and has been inconsistent over his last seven, dating back to June 12. Combined with reports that his velocity being down, and fantasy owners should be cautious about acquiring him. A move to the pitcher-friendly confines of Kauffman Stadium and the contending Royals would be a significant boost to his fantasy value if he is healthy. AL-only players would have a fine waiver wire target to acquire.

Reds | Billy Hamilton collects three hits

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 19:26:24 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton tied a season-high with three hits in five at-bats in the second game of a doubleheader against the Chicago Cubs Wednesday, July 22, with two doubles and two RBIs.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is only batting .226 this season but perhaps this is a sign that he's starting to turn things around. After batting ninth for much of the year, Hamilton went 1-for-4 with two RBIs as the No. 7 hitter during the first game of the doubleheader and was moved to the leadoff spot for the nightcap. FantasyScore owners may want to avoid using him for another game or two just to make sure this wasn't a fluke.

Reds | Tony Cingrani struggles in start

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 19:05:10 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Tony Cingrani allowed five runs on six hits over 2 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Chicago Cubs Wednesday, July 22, with two walks and three strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: It was Cingrani's ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) first start since coming off the disabled list with a strained left shoulder, so the struggles he experienced weren't surprising. Avoid using him in FantasyScore until he demonstrates that he can consistently get outs.

Reds | Todd Frazier continues surge

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 17:40:59 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 3B Todd Frazier picked up three more hits Wednesday, July 22, in Game 1 of the doubleheader against the New York Mets. Frazier is now 6-for-12 with a homer and six RBI since receiving an off day Sunday, July 19.

Fantasy Tip: Frazier ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) has just one home run since winning the All Star Derby, but he's hot right now and the power will surely return to full force.

Reds | Night off for Brandon Phillips

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 13:38:45 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips is not in the starting lineup for Game 2 of the doubleheader against the Chicago Cubs Wednesday, July 22. 2B Ivan De Jesus is playing second base and batting eighth against Cubs SP Dallas Beeler Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Phillips ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday night. The veteran went just 1-for-5 in Game 1, which moves him to 9-for-23 over his past five contests. He is a low-end second baseman in the majority of formats. De Jesus ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) should be viewed as a low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests.

Reds | Jay Bruce on bench for Game 1

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 06:59:05 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce is out of the lineup for the first day of a doubleheader Wednesday, July 22, with OF Jason Bourgeois hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Bourgeois ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is just 3-for-18 on the year and isn't worth the flyer on FantasyScore.

Reds | Billy Hamilton sitting out

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 10:39:56 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton is out of the lineup Tuesday, July 21, with OF Skip Schumaker hitting eighth in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Schumaker ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) isn't much of an option on FantasyScore. It's their fifth game in as many days so it's likely a routine day off for Hamilton.
