Rockies | Troy Tulowitzki being rested

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 13:32:18 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Troy Tulowitzki is not in the starting lineup Friday, April 24. 2B Daniel Descalso is starting at shortstop and hitting eighth in the batting order against San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston.

Fantasy Tip: Descalso ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a light-hitting utility infielder that shouldn't even be considered at FantasyScore while taking hacks at hitter-friendly Coors Field tonight against a rookie hurler.

Rockies | Jordan Lyles fixes mechanics in win

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 16:38:18 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Jordan Lyles resisted the urge to fall toward first base on his fastballs in his impressive start and win over the San Diego Padres Thursday, April 23. It gave him better control, and he held the Padres to one run and six hits in 6 2/3 innings. Lyles walked two and struck out four in the outing.

Fantasy Tip: Lyles ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has been very impressive to start the 2015 season, and he should be owned in all standard fantasy leagues at this point. An efficient outing in a hitter's park against one of the better offenses in the league Thursday will put him on the FantasyScore radar moving forward.

Rockies | Corey Dickerson on power binge

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 16:30:36 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Corey Dickerson hit a solo home run in a win over the San Diego Padres Thursday, April 23, for his third solo shot in the last two days while he deals with plantar fasciitis. He was removed in the eighth inning on a double switch, but it was just precautionary.

Fantasy Tip: Dickerson's ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) sore foot hasn't really impacted his performance at the dish, at least not yet. You can't be too concerned if you own him, but keep an eye out. While he's hot, continue riding him at FantasyScore. However, keep in mind that he has drastic home-road splits, and hits much better at hitter-friendly Coors Field.

Rockies | Adam Ottavino asked for day off

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 15:30:45 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP Adam Ottavino is not injured, but he asked for the day off Thursday, April 23, after complaining of "usual pitcher's soreness."

Fantasy Tip: Ottavino had an 11-pitch save against the San Diego Padres Wednesday night. In his absence Thursday, John Axford nailed down the save Thursday. With LaTroy Hawkins on the DL, Axford is likely next in line for save opportunities, but Ottavino should continue to serve as the Rockies' main fireman in the ninth inning.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez on bench

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 10:25:29 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 23. OF Drew Stubbs is starting in center field and hitting seventh in the batting order against San Diego Padres SP Tyson Ross.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) is in a bad slump to start 2015, going 10-for-56 (.179) with one home run and five RBI. Until he gets back on track, you'll probably want to bench him in standard leagues, and avoid him at FantasyScore. Stubbs ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) doesn't come recommended for daily gamers, as he's much better against left-handed pitchers.

Rockies | Justin Morneau out against Padres

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 10:21:58 -0700

Colorado Rockies 1B Justin Morneau is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 23. 2B Daniel Descalso is starting at first base and hitting sixth in the batting order against San Diego Padres SP Tyson Ross.

Fantasy Tip: Descalso ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) doesn't really tip the offensive scales for FantasyScore owners looking for a cheap infield option. It's best to look elsewhere for your keystone starter Thursday.

Rockies | LaTroy Hawkins to DL

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 15:46:11 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP LaTroy Hawkins (biceps) was placed on the disabled list with a biceps injury Wednesday, April 22. RP Scott Oberg was recalled from the minors in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Hawkins lost the closing gig earlier this month to Adam Ottavino, and he's the Rockies' long-term solution to the ninth. John Axford, who activated to the roster, could be next in line for save chances, but all indication is that it's Ottavino's job to run with for the foreseeable future. Anyone that was stashing Hawkins in an NL-only or deep mixed league can now cut him.

Rockies | Wilin Rosario sent down

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 14:46:08 -0700

Colorado Rockies C Wilin Rosario was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque Wednesday, April 22, where he'll play first base regularly. RP John Axford was called up in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Rosario ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) wasn't very useful to owners aside from those in deep NL-only leagues because of his inconsistent playing time. On the bright side, he did have five hits in 14 at-bats (.357) with a home run. You can now cut bait on him if you were holding him in deep mixed leagues.

Rockies | Nick Hundley resting

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 14:31:27 -0700

Colorado Rockies C Nick Hundley is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 22. C Michael McKenry is starting behind the dish and hitting seventh in the batting order against San Diego Padres SP James Shields.

Fantasy Tip: McKenry ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) isn't much of an offensive force for FantasyScore owners to salivate over, but he did post a .328 average (41-for-125) with five of his eight home runs against right-handed pitchers in 2014. Shields will be a tall task Wednesday night, but McKenry might be worth a look as a deep sleeper at catcher that could save you valuable loot elsewhere.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez dropped in order

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 14:27:10 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is being dropped to sixth in the batting order against San Diego Padres SP James Shields Wednesday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has just 10 hits in 53 at-bats (.189) to start the season, although he does have a home run and five RBI. Despite his struggles, it's hard to argue selecting him at FantasyScore for the price, and he does have two home runs in nine career at-bats against Shields. Car-Go will be an under-the-radar pick in daily games tonight.

Rockies | Nolan Arenado playing Wednesday

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 14:23:47 -0700

Colorado Rockies 3B Nolan Arenado (wrist) is returning to the starting lineup against San Diego Padres SP James Shields Wednesday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: Arenado ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) hasn't played since Sunday with his wrist issue. He's typically a must-start at FantasyScore, and he remains a strong play tonight coming off his injury against a good pitcher in Shields.

Rockies | Corey Dickerson back in lineup

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 14:19:21 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Corey Dickerson (foot) is back in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres SP James Shields Wednesday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: Dickerson ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) is dealing with a bit of plantar fasciitis, which could become troublesome in the long run. Keep an eye on his status. Drew Stubbs would see a significant fantasy boost if Dickerson's foot issues persist. Now that he's back in, though, Dickerson is an attractive FantasyScore option, even against Shields. Dickerson hit .328 (113-for-345) against righties in 2014, and he hits much better in the launching pad known as Coors Field.

Rockies | Nolan Arenado unable to start

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 18:58:02 -0700

Colorado Rockies 3B Nolan Arenado (wrist) missed his second straight game Tuesday, April 21, against the San Diego Padres due to a sore left wrist.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain when Arenado will be back, although he did say he felt better Tuesday. Rafael Ynoa ($1,600; 3.2% of cap) made another start in Arenado's absence and is a low-end FantasyScore option.

Rockies | Corey Dickerson still sidelined

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 18:57:21 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Corey Dickerson (foot) was sidelined for the game Tuesday, April 21, against the San Diego Padres due to plantar fasciitis in his left foot.

Fantasy Tip: Manager Walt Weiss said that Dickerson's bout with plantar fasciitis is minor, but FantasyScore owners will want to be careful going forward, especially at $4,400 (or 8.8% of cap).
