Reds | Mike Leake market narrowing

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 21:25:15 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake is expected to be traded to the San Francisco Giants or New York Yankees.

Fantasy Tip: Leake ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) has been a bargain at FantasyScore lately, and if he is traded, staying in the NL with the Giants would likely allow him to maintain his current fantasy value.

Reds | Jay Bruce on a tear

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 21:19:36 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce went 1-for-4 with three RBI in a 15-5 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates Thursday, July 30, and he has had at least one RBI in five straight games.

Fantasy Tip: Bruce ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) has 10 RBI during the streak, but with his name being mentioned in trade rumors, he is a risky option at FantasyScore Friday with the trade deadline looming.

Reds | Career night for Brandon Phillips

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 20:54:46 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips went 4-for-5 with two home runs, two runs scored, two steals and a career-high seven RBI in a 15-5 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) had just two RBI the entire month entering Thursday's game and none in his last 11 games. Needless to say, you can't expect him to duplicate this type of production, and he remains a below average play at FantasyScore.

Pirates | Gregory Polanco starting vs. Reds

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 13:03:34 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco (knee) is playing right field and batting first against Cincinnati Reds SP David Holmberg Thursday, July 30. Polanco was removed in the fourth inning of the game Wednesday, July 29, against the Minnesota Twins due to discomfort in his left knee.

Fantasy Tip: Polanco ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) might not be as speedy on the base paths due to the knee discomfort, so his FantasyScore value takes a hit Thursday, and he should be viewed as a high-risk, high-reward option for contests. Seasonal owners should be happy to see him right back in the lineup, though.

Reds | Brayan Pena resting Thursday

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 10:59:04 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 30. C Tucker Barnhart is catching and hitting seventh against Pittsburgh Pirates SP A.J. Burnett.

Fantasy Tip: You can do much better than Barnhart ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) as your FantasyScore catcher tonight, unless you're desperate for some salary cap relief in order to fit studs at other positions.

Reds | Todd Frazier sitting

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 10:56:45 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 3B Todd Frazier is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 30. 2B Ivan De Jesus is starting at the hot corner and is hitting second against Pittsburgh Pirates SP A.J. Burnett.

Fantasy Tip: De Jesus ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is in a good lineup position to capitalize in daily games, but he remains a low-end second base option against the savvy vet Burnett.

Reds | Anthony DeSclafani tosses up donut

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 22:52:40 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani allowed just three hits and three walks over seven scoreless innings in a win Wednesday, July 29, against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: DeSclafani ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) was surprisingly effective for FantasyScore players, but looking at his splits he is usually better on the road than at Great American Ball Park. He is 4-2 with a 2.41 ERA in 11 road outings, while he is 2-5 with a 5.69 ERA in nine home starts.

Reds | Jay Bruce moving up team list

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 22:52:00 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce belted a solo home run Wednesday, July 29, against the St. Louis Cardinals, providing all of the offense in a 1-0 win. It was his 199th homer, moving him past Hall of Famer Barry Larkin into ninth place on the team's all-time homers list.

Fantasy Tip: The homer could be Bruce's last in a Cincinnati uniform, as his name has been bandied about in many trade rumors. Over the course of the next few days it might be prudent to avoid Bruce ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) and his high salary in FantasyScore in case he is moved.

Reds | Aroldis Chapman likely to stay with Reds

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 14:14:05 -0700

Cincinnati Reds RP Aroldis Chapman is not expected to be traded. The list of teams interested in trading for him has shrunk dramatically, which has made the likelihood of him being dealt slim.

Fantasy Tip: Chapman remains a top-tier closer regardless of his jersey, so continue to view him as such. For the year, he has three wins and 20 saves with a 1.69 ERA, a 1.62 FIP, a 1.22 WHIP and a 15.8 K/9.

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.
