Rockies | Matt McBride starting vs. Pirates

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 12:59:02 -0700

Colorado Rockies 1B Matt McBride is starting at first base and batting sixth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Friday, Aug. 28. 1B Ben Paulsen is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Paulsen ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) rarely plays against lefties, so McBride ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) draws in to face the potentially daunting Liriano ($7,500, 15.0% of cap). FantasyScore players will be able to stack their lineups around McBride, but he is nothing more than a dice roll. After all, he doesn't have an extra base hit or RBI yet this season.

Rockies | Charlie Blackmon sitting vs. Pirates

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 12:50:45 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 28. OF Kyle Parker draws into the lineup and is batting seventh against SP Francisco Liriano Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Blackmon ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday. He hasn't been at his best of late with just 10 runs, six RBI and six stolen bases in August. Parker ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) should be viewed as nothing more than a low-priced flier at FantasyScore Friday. He faces a tough lefty, and he has an uninspiring .200/.236/.318 slash line over 40 games in his career.

Rockies | Justin Morneau headed for rehab stint

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 11:25:06 -0700

Colorado Rockies 1B Justin Morneau (concussion) will begin a rehab assignment at Class AA New Britain Friday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: He's likely to play through the weekend and be evaluated. Morneau ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) could be a factor the last month of the season, but he has such a lengthy history of concussions it's hard to tell what we'll see out of him.

Rockies | Nolan Arenado taking day off

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 14:26:36 -0700

Colorado Rockies 3B Nolan Arenado is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26. 2B DJ LeMahieu moves into the cleanup spot, while 2B Daniel Descalso is starting at third base and batting seventh against Atlanta Braves SP Shelby Miller.

Fantasy Tip: All LeMahieu ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has done is continue to hit this year, so continue to ride him on FantasyScore. However, Miller has been very solid all season long despite his record. Descalso ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a weak daily pick with his .207 average (29-for-140) and four homers on the season.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez returns to lineup

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 14:21:57 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez (knee) is back in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Shelby Miller Wednesday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Miller has been pitching much better than his record might suggest for the Braves. Gonzalez ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) could be overlooked on FantasyScore coming off his minor injury, and a whopping 28 of his 30 home runs this year have come against right-handers. Car-Go is a solid choice tonight.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez out Tuesday

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 13:46:11 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez (knee) is out of the game Tuesday, Aug. 25, due to a sore right knee. OF Matt McBride is batting seventh against Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) just hurt the knee the day before, so the Rockies aren't taking any chances and are keeping him out. He should be stashed away on your bench in regular leagues as well. McBride ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is worth a low-cost flier. He has a .208 mark in August but his bat has warmed up in the past week (.357).

Rockies | Kyle Kendrick to throw sim game

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 22:51:45 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Kyle Kendrick (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a simulated game Sunday, Aug. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick is expected back sometime in September. Until he can officially return, avoid him in FantasyScore.

Rockies | Michael McKenry undergoes surgery

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 22:50:55 -0700

Colorado Rockies C Michael McKenry (knee) had surgery Monday, Aug. 24, in Denver to repair a lateral meniscus tear in his right knee.

Fantasy Tip: McKenry is on the 60-day disabled list and will not return again this season. Scratch him from your FantasyScore cheat sheets.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez exits with sore knee

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 18:39:48 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez (knee) left the game Monday, Aug. 24, against the Atlanta Braves due to a sore left knee. He is considered day to day.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) has been red hot lately, but injuries are always a concern when using him in FantasyScore. Give him a full game to prove his health before trusting him again at this high price.

Rockies | Chad Bettis starting Tuesday

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 15:56:38 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis (elbow) will be activated from the disabled list to start against the Atlanta Braves Tuesday, Aug. 25. In a corresponding move, SP David Hale has been optioned to Class AAA Albuquerque.

Fantasy Tip: Bettis ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) hasn't started for Colorado since Sunday, July 19. And while the Braves are a team to target with your starting pitchers, Bettis remains a risky start. Hale ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) can be dropped in all seasonal formats.

Rockies | Jose Reyes would welcome trade

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 08:52:32 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Jose Reyes would welcome a trade out of Colorado, and the Rockies are likely seeking to trade him, too. Reyes isn't interested in playing for a team that's not competitive, and the Rockies are on pace for another 95-loss year. Colorado owes Reyes more than $56 million through the 2017 season. "I'm at the point in my career that I want to win," Reyes said. "I say it over and over. I want to win. I don't want to spend the rest of my career on a last-place team. That's not the kind of player I feel like I am." Reyes was put through waivers last week and went unclaimed, so the Rockies can trade Reyes to any team. It could be tough to trade him, though, as his OPS is below .700 for the first time since 2005, and he ranks last in defensive runs saved this year among 25 qualifying shortstops.

Fantasy Tip: Even though Reyes ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) is on a last-place team, the move to Colorado was good for his overall fantasy value, as he's hitting in one of the more hitter-friendly home ballparks at Coors Field. Another trade this year would likely decrease his value for the remainder of the 2015 season.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez hits 30th homer

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 00:54:15 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez hit his 30th home run of the season Sunday, Aug. 23, in a 5-1 loss to the New York Mets. It marked the first time since 2010, when Gonzalez smacked 34 homers, that he reached the 30-homer plateau.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($8,000, 16.0% of cap) is making the most of Colorado's largely forgettable season and should remain in FantasyScore lineups as long as his bat stays hot.

Rockies | David Hale sets dubious record

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 00:46:55 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP David Hale threw four wild pitches in his team's 5-1 loss to the New York Mets on Sunday, Aug. 23.

Fantasy Tip: In defense of Hale ($3,200, 6.4% of cap), he did throw nine strikeouts, but Hale's record fell to 3-5 overall. In short, just your typical Coors Field outing. Although his ratio (13 walks, 40 strikeouts) is good, Hale's ERA has risen from 4.12 to 6.15 in his last eight starts. Leave him on your bench.

Rockies | Ben Paulsen returns to lineup

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 11:13:14 -0700

Colorado Rockies 1B Ben Paulsen is back in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Logan Verrett Sunday, Aug. 23, batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Paulsen ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) did not start Saturday, Aug. 22, because the Rockies were facing left-handed SP Jon Niese. He is batting .285 against right-handed pitching and is hitting .319 with six home runs and 16 RBIs in 94 at-bats during day games, making this a favorable matchup for him in FantasyScore.

Rockies | Nick Hundley not catching Sunday

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 11:09:44 -0700

Colorado Rockies C Nick Hundley is not in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Logan Verrett Sunday, Aug. 23. C Dustin Garneau will start behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Garneau ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is 2-for-7 with a pair of doubles and two RBIs. If you need salary cap relief in FantasyScore, he could be worth a flier.
