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.

Reds | Brandon Phillips still out

Wed, 27 May 2015 07:10:29 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (toe) is not in the starting lineup against the Colorado Rockies Wednesday, May 27. 2B Skip Schumaker is batting leadoff and starting at the keystone Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Phillips ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. There was speculation he might be able to play Wednesday, so seasonal owners shouldn't anticipate a lengthy absence. While Schumaker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is cheap and in a prime lineup spot, he is nothing more than a low-price flier for FantasyScore contests.

Reds | Johnny Cueto to miss at least one start

Tue, 26 May 2015 19:15:13 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto (elbow) will miss at least one more start after an MRI found inflammation in his pitching elbow Tuesday, May 26. No significant injury was found.

Fantasy Tip: Cueto ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) should be given an extra start or two upon his return before FantasyScore owners reinvest.

Reds | Johnny Cueto not out of the woods

Tue, 26 May 2015 16:56:47 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto (elbow) must still throw in the next few days to make sure the stiffness and soreness in his right elbow is gone, according to manager Bryan Price. "Before we can schedule a bullpen session and then schedule his next start. It will be a couple of days before we know when he will be back in the rotation. He has to kick the tires on how the elbow feels," Price said.

Fantasy Tip: It's unknown when Cueto's ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) next start will come, and depending on the matchup, you may want to avoid paying up for him at FantasyScore until we know he's back to 100% health.

Reds | Brandon Phillips dealing with turf toe

Tue, 26 May 2015 16:53:19 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (toe) had his turf toe issue flare up on him again Tuesday, May 26, which is why he wasn't in the starting lineup. "He aggravated it in Cleveland, but until you actually see it on the field you are not going to hear much about it from Brandon," said manager Bryan Price. "He is not going to alert anybody about it. He'll just go out and play and when it becomes noticeable we take the lead to make sure he gets adequate treatment and not continue to aggravate it."

Fantasy Tip: Phillips ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) could return tomorrow, but check the team's starting lineup before running with him at FantasyScore. Kris Negron ($2,000, 4.0% of cap), who started for Phillips Tuesday, isn't worth your time in daily games.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco to be bench player?

Tue, 26 May 2015 16:47:56 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) is likely to be a bench player when he returns from the disabled list while dealing with a hip impingement, according to manager Bryan Price. It's unknown is Mesoraco will need surgery to fix his injury or if he'll be able to catch again.

Fantasy Tip: The bottom line is that 2015 will be a lost season for Mesoraco, and his owners who spent a high draft pick on him are really paying the price. At this point we hope you've moved on in shallow mixed formats. Brayan Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap), who is hitting .308 (32-for-104), will continue to start behind the dish. It's hard to argue with his price as a value play at FantasyScore when he faces certain right-handed pitchers.

Reds | Zack Cozart at leadoff Tuesday

Tue, 26 May 2015 15:36:38 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart is hitting leadoff against Colorado Rockies SP Chris Rusin Tuesday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: Cozart ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has cooled off a bit of late, but he, along with most of the rest of Cincinnati's lineup, makes for a strong start against spot starter Rusin tonight at FantasyScore.

Rockies | Chris Rusin starting against Reds

Tue, 26 May 2015 15:31:21 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Chris Rusin is the starting pitcher against the Cincinnati Reds Tuesday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: Rusin, making a spot start for injured starter Jorge De La Rosa (finger), should be avoided in all daily games today. A smart strategy, though, would be to stack hitters from the Reds lineup at FantasyScore.

Reds | Brandon Phillips out of lineup Tuesday

Tue, 26 May 2015 12:12:09 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips is not starting Tuesday, May 26, against the Colorado Rockies. 2B Kris Negron is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) appears to be out due to a night off so remove him accordingly. As for Negron ($2,000, 4.0% of cap), he is 6-for-40 in the past month so don't bother saving space for him.

Reds | Johnny Cueto's MRI negative

Tue, 26 May 2015 11:14:06 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto (elbow) has no structural damage in his elbow, according to results of an MRI disclosed on Tuesday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: Cueto ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) dodged a bullet with this news as it looks like he won't need Tommy John surgery. Still, wait until he has a clean bill of health before putting him in your lineup.

Reds | Johnny Cueto to have MRI

Tue, 26 May 2015 10:24:15 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto (elbow) will undergo an MRI exam on his right elbow Tuesday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: It wasn't believed that Cueto ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) would miss more than one start because of his elbow issues, and the results of his MRI exam will determine whether that'll be true. Stay tuned.

Reds | Good news for Johnny Cueto?

Mon, 25 May 2015 19:12:20 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto (elbow) was examined for a stiff right elbow Monday, May 25, but manager Bryan Price said Cueto is not expected to miss more than one start.

Fantasy Tip: Cueto ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) has been one of the best pitchers available at FantasyScore, but any elbow issue is worrisome. It is not a bad idea to avoid him when he does make his next start just to make sure he is 100%.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco placed on DL

Mon, 25 May 2015 09:37:47 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday, May 25, because of a hip injury. The team also activated RP Manny Parra (neck, elbow) from the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has been limited to pinch hit and designated hitter duties over the last several weeks because of the injury. It is not known when he will be able to catch again. Brayan Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should continue to be the starting catcher for the Reds and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore.

Reds | Billy Hamilton batting ninth

Mon, 25 May 2015 07:34:52 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton is batting ninth in the starting lineup Monday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) has been struggling at the plate this season and is entering the game with a .211 batting average. He also has only four stolen bases this month. Owners on FantasyScore could still consider using Hamilton because of his stolen base potential, but he may not help much in the other categories.
