Giants | Gregor Blanco leading off vs. Reds

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 10:25:46 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco is starting in center field and leading off against Cincinnati Reds SP Dan Straily Wednesday, July 27. Giants OF Denard Span is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: View this as a routine day off for Span, but he's barely moving the fantasy needle enough to be anything more than a low-end option in deep mixed leagues. He's got just three stolen bases through his past 38 games, after all. Blanco is a nice value play in daily contests Wednesday.

Reds | Homer Bailey to debut in San Diego

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 19:17:52 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Homer Bailey (elbow) is expected to start Sunday, July 31, against the San Diego Padres assuming he has no setbacks in the next few days.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners in NL-only leagues and deeper mixed formats will want to scoop him up, but wait a few starts for him to knock off the rust before activating him.

Reds | Tucker Barnhart not starting

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 16:08:17 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Tucker Barnhart is not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain Tuesday, July 26. C Ramon Cabrera will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera is hitting .265 with seven RBI in his limited playing time this season. He can be a decent option in NL-only leagues but probably should be avoided in most other leagues.

Reds | Homer Bailey returning Tuesday?

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 23:50:49 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Homer Bailey (elbow) may rejoin the parent club as soon as Tuesday, July 26.

Fantasy Tip: You can go ahead and pick Bailey up in deeper NL and mixed formats, but wait a bit before you activate him. Bailey hasn't pitched a big-league game in quite some time, so he will need to find his pitching legs.

Reds | Anthony DeSclafani stays unbeaten

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 23:43:41 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani allowed five runs over five innings, struck out six and walked two Monday, July 25, in a 7-5 win over the San Francisco Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Not bad for a pitcher who missed the first two months of the year due to a strained oblique. DeSclafani is now 6-0 overall and one of the few bright spots for the Reds. Start him in DFS formats and regular leagues as well.

Reds | Jay Bruce on homer tear

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 23:38:50 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce hit two homers Monday, July 25, in a 7-5 win over the San Francisco Giants. It was his 22nd and 23rd homers of the year.

Fantasy Tip: Bruce is already hot in demand as one of the top players to possibly move before the trade deadline. He's been red-hot this season at the plate and will likely be valuable in all formats no matter where he goes.

Reds | Jay Bruce has two hits Sunday

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 14:56:23 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce had two hits and drove in four runs Sunday, July 24, in a 9-8 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Bruce is up to 21 homers and 73 RBI, and there's no doubt the Reds are trying to showcase him for a trade. With numbers like that, someone is sure to bite. Stay tuned to see who.

Reds | Zack Cozart sitting vs. Arizona

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 07:30:48 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart is not in the starting lineup Sunday, July 24. 2B Jose Peraza is starting at shortstop and batting second against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Godley Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Cozart is having a sneaky fantasy season with 53 runs, 15 home runs, 41 RBI and a .265/.317/.471 slash line. He's a viable starter in most fantasy leagues, but you'll want to sub him out where you can Sunday. Peraza is a highly regarded youngster, but he isn't receiving the playing time to carry value as anything more than a depth option in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. View Peraza as a potential flier in daily contests Sunday, though.

Reds | Jay Bruce goes deep

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 20:20:07 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and a double in a 6-1 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks Sunday, July 23.

Fantasy Tip: Bruce is up to 20 homers, and he remains a must-start in all formats thanks to his power potential.

Reds | Three steals for Billy Hamilton

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 20:02:27 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton went 2-for-4 with two runs scored, three steals and a walk in a 6-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton is riding a modest five-game hitting streak, and he has seven steals over the stretch. When he is reaching base at a decent clip, he can be a fantasy stud in both season-long and DFS formats.

Reds | Joey Votto's tear continues

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 19:58:25 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto homered for the third time in four games, finishing 1-for-3 with three RBI, two runs scored and two walks in a 6-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Votto has raised his average from .252 to .271 since the All-Star break. Take advantage of his hot streak in DFS formats.

Reds | Homer Bailey to pitch Monday

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 14:46:58 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Homer Bailey (elbow) will make another rehab start with Class AAA Louisville Monday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Bailey made two starts in 2015 before he was injured and needed Tommy John surgery. Given that he pitched well for Cincy previously, including a no-hitter, Bailey should definitely be monitored in the majority of leagues. There's no guarantee he'll return favorable results for however much he pitches in 2016, but he's worth stashing now in cavernous mixed and NL leagues. Monitor his progress everywhere else.

Reds | Rangers looking at Anthony DeSclafani

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 09:29:13 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani is among the "rotation names" being considered by the Texas Rangers as the trade deadline approaches.

Fantasy Tip: DeSclafani's stock has risen considerably since returning from an oblique injury that sidelined him the first two months of the campaign. He's 5-0 in eight starts with a 2.50 ERA, while registering a solid 40-to-9 K/BB ratio across 50 1/3 total innings. The right-hander would get a sizable boost if dealt to Texas, as although Arlington doesn't feature favorable conditions for pitchers, it's not that different from Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, plus he would be in a much better position for wins.

Reds | Homer Bailey makes rehab start

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 15:50:46 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Homer Bailey (elbow) pitched in a rehab game Wednesday, July 20, for Class AAA Louisville. He went 5 1/3 innings and surrendered five runs, throwing 53 of 83 pitches for strikes.

Fantasy Tip: Bailey is getting closer to making it back to the Reds after missing more than a year due to Tommy John surgery. He'll be someone to consider right away, considering the notable success he had in Cincinnati before going down with the injury, but probably should be scouted first by owners in case he endures struggles upon his return.

Reds | Joey Votto continues strong July

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 15:29:57 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto went 1-for-3 with his 16th home run of the season Wednesday, July 20, versus the Atlanta Braves. He finished the game with a run scored and two RBI, and he also drew a walk.

Fantasy Tip: Votto has been enjoying a scorching July, now hitting 18-for-45 (.400) for the month with a pair of homers and 10 runs scored. As expected, the former NL MVP has recovered nicely from a disastrous start and is always worth starting every time he's in the lineup.
