Reds | Jay Bruce scores and drives in three

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 05:38:44 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce went 3-for-5 with three runs, a home run and three RBI during the Reds' 12-9 win over the Milwaukee Brewers Saturday, Aug. 29.

Fantasy Tip: It was just the second home run for Bruce ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) in August, and he owns a .154/.183/.298 slash line for the month. He has potential, but FantasyScore players should view him as nothing more than a dice roll at this point. In seasonal formats, a long hard look at alternatives is warranted.

Reds | Todd Frazier launches No. 30

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 05:26:11 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 3B Todd Frazier went 2-for-5 with two runs, a home run and two RBI during Cincinnati's 12-9 win over the Milwaukee Brewers Saturday, Aug. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Frazier ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has cooled off significantly since the All-Star break and owns a disappointing .222/.264/.389 slash line with just five home runs and 20 RBI. Seasonal owners can only hope he can string together a solid run to finish the season, as he was a team carrier through the first three months of the season. FantasyScore players will want to be picky with when they utilize Frazier at his cap hit, though.

Reds | Jason Bourgeois playing center field

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 11:32:23 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jason Bourgeois will bat leadoff and play center field against Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza Saturday, Aug. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Bourgeois ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has hit safely in eight of his last nine games and is batting .268 in 41 at-bats this month. If you're looking for a low-priced flier in FantasyScore, consider him.

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 11:26:49 -0700

Reds | Skip Schumaker playing left field

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 11:24:24 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Schumaker ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is batting .294 over the past week and is 6-for-17 (.353) with a double versus Garza in his career, making this a favorable matchup for him. FantasyScore owners in need of cap relief should keep him in mind for their lineups tonight.

Reds | Brayan Pena batting second vs. Brewers

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:06:26 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena is batting second against Milwaukee Brewers SP Taylor Jungmann Friday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Pena ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) grabs a nice value boost hitting atop the lineup. Still, he you'll want to keep your expectations in check. Pena's on-base percentage (.340) is higher than his slugging percentage (.319), after all. He is nothing more than an endgame lineup filler at FantayScore Friday.

Reds | Anthony DeSclafani suffers hard-luck loss

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 17:37:41 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani (7-10) allowed one run on six hits over seven innings in a loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers Thursday, Aug. 27, with one walk and six strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: DeSclafani ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) had his sixth quality start in his last seven outings but received no run support Thursday afternoon. He will make his next start Tuesday, Sept. 1, against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field.

Reds | Todd Frazier in two-hole

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 07:05:59 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 3B Todd Frazier is hitting second Thursday, Aug. 27, against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke.

Fantasy Tip: The Toddfather ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has a .221-4-18 line in 149 at-bats since winning the Home Run Derby. He has a tough draw against Greinke and might not be the best play on FantasyScore.

Reds | David Holmberg suffers loss Wednesday

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 21:19:56 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP David Holmberg (1-4) allowed six runs on seven hits over 3 2/3 innings in a loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers Wednesday, Aug. 26, with two walks and one strikeout. He allowed three home runs in the fourth inning before being removed from the game.

Fantasy Tip: Holmberg ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) and manager Bryan Price both agreed that lack of command has led to his inconsistency and he plans to work on repeating his delivery between starts. He is scheduled to make his next start at Wrigley Field against the Chicago Cubs Monday, Aug. 31.

Reds | Billy Hamilton rehab update

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 21:10:52 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton (shoulder) is not close to resuming baseball activities. He is still required to wear a shoulder harness for periods of time every day and participates in physical therapy.

Fantasy Tip: As one of the most feared baserunners in the league, Hamilton ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) should remain stashed in all fantasy formats despite his subpar offensive numbers. Jason Bourgeois ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) and Skip Schumaker ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) will continue to platoon in center field but should be ignored in FantasyScore.

Reds | Brayan Pena out Tuesday

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 11:25:21 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena is not in the starting lineup for the second straight day Tuesday, Aug. 25. C Tucker Barnhart receives the start again and is batting eighth against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Alex Wood.

Fantasy Tip: Barnhart ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has just four home runs in the last two years, so he's a very weak FantasyScore option as your catcher. He also is hitting just .194 (6-for-31) with no homers against lefties this year.

Tigers | Jose Iglesias riding pine against Reds

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 12:30:25 -0700

Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias is not in the starting lineup Monday, Aug. 24. SS Andrew Romine is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against Cincinnati Reds SP Keyvius Sampson Monday, Aug. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Iglesias ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Monday. While he doesn't offer much power or speed, Igelsias has nice contact skills and can help in the batting average category. He is worth a look in the majority of formats for those needing a late-season boost in batting average. Romine ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore Monday.

Tigers | Victor Martinez sitting vs. Reds

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 12:20:51 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez is not in the starting lineup against the Cincinnati Reds Monday, Aug. 24.

Fantasy Tip: The Tigers can't utilize a designated hitter during their road game against the Reds, so it is Martinez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) draws out of the lineup. It is also worth adding, Martinez has an underwhelming .631 OPS through 20 games in August, and his seasonal value is trending in the wrong direction.

Tigers | Anthony Gose leading off vs. Reds

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 12:10:15 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Anthony Gose is leading off against Cincinnati Reds SP Keyvius Sampson Monday, Aug. 24. OF Rajai Davis is not in the starting lineup Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Gose ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) receives a nice fantasy boost hitting atop the Detroit lineup, but he has been struggling of late. It has been five games since he batted first, and Gose has a disappointing .190/.264/.304 slash line over his past 23 games. He should be viewed as a high-risk option at FantasyScore Monday.

Reds | Tucker Barnhart draws into lineup

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 11:35:28 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Tucker Barnhart is starting and hitting eighth against Detroit Tigers SP Buck Farmer Monday, Aug. 24. C Brayan Pena is taking the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Barnhart ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) typically is a backup catcher to avoid in daily games, but his matchup against Farmer makes him at least worth consideration as a deep sleeper.
