Reds | Zack Cozart not playing Sunday

Sun, 24 May 2015 08:08:18 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 24. INF Kris Negron will be the starting shortstop for the Reds.

Fantasy Tip: Cozart ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) is receiving a day off after starting in the last several games. Negron ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has not been very successful in his limited playing time this season and should not be used on FantasyScore.

Reds | Billy Hamilton on the bench

Sun, 24 May 2015 07:54:22 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 24. OF Brennan Boesch will be the starting center fielder for the Reds.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) has struggled in some games recently, so he is receiving a day off. Boesch ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting only .121 this season and should not be a starting option on FantasyScore.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco suffers setback

Sat, 23 May 2015 12:30:12 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) tested his hip Friday, May 22, by doing 15 squats, giving signs and trying to get into a catching stance. However, things did not work out as well as planned. "It was very difficult," he said. "(Catching is) probably not something that's going to happen any time soon. It obviously caused some problems afterward. It doesn't make sense to do a whole lot more right now because it doesn't feel good."

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) could wind up undergoing season-ending surgery as a result of this latest setback, although no final decision will be made until the Reds return home from their road trip. FantasyScore owners should avoid using him because he hasn't even been able to serve as a designated hitter in the last two games.

Reds | Brennan Boesch in starting lineup

Sat, 23 May 2015 09:19:16 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Brennan Boesch is starting in right field against the Cleveland Indians Saturday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: Boesch ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has only four hits in his 33 at-bats this season and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Reds | Marlon Byrd not starting

Sat, 23 May 2015 09:03:03 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Marlon Byrd is not in the starting lineup Saturday, May 23. OF Skip Schumaker will be the starting left fielder for the Reds.

Fantasy Tip: Byrd ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has been on a cold streak lately and likely is receiving a day off. Schumaker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting .250 in limited playing time, but owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options.

Reds | Raisel Iglesias to receive start

Sat, 23 May 2015 08:46:44 -0700

Cincinnati Reds P Raisel Iglesias will be the starting pitcher against the Cleveland Indians Sunday, May 24, in place of SP Johnny Cueto.

Fantasy Tip: Iglesias ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has been used as a starter and reliever this season. He will enter the game with a 3.94 ERA and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore but could be an option for owners looking to save money.

Reds | Johnny Cueto not starting Sunday

Sat, 23 May 2015 08:25:26 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto will not make his scheduled start Sunday, May 24, because of general stiffness.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Cueto ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) will miss more time and if he needs to be placed on the 15-day disabled list. Raisel Iglesias ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) will make the start Sunday and could be an option on FantasyScore if owners are looking to save some money.

Reds | Brayan Pena the DH against Tribe

Fri, 22 May 2015 12:01:21 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena is serving as the designated hitter and hitting sixth in the batting order against Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco Friday, May 22. C Tucker Barnhart gets the start behind the dish and is hitting ninth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) who is hitting .322 (29-for-90) with no homers and four RBI, is also excelling from the left side against right-handers, going 23-for-62 (.371) this year. At his price, it's hard not to like him as a sleeper option at catcher. Barnhart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be ignored.

Reds | Brandon Phillips hitting leadoff Friday

Fri, 22 May 2015 11:56:46 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips is hitting leadoff against Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco Friday, May 22. SS Zack Cozart drops down a spot into the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is hitting .368 (21-for-57) with a home run and eight RBI in the month of May and hasn't had trouble hitting righties this year (.304/.349/.373) with both of his home runs. Carrasco has good stuff but has allowed right-handers to hit .310 (31-for-100) with two home runs off him this year. Phillips isn't a bad bet at FantasyScore while he's swinging a hot stick, and a move to the top of the lineup could maximize his value.

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.
