Rockies | Nolan Arenado surging

Mon, 25 May 2015 19:03:21 -0700

Colorado Rockies 3B Nolan Arenado went 3-for-4 with a three-run home run in a 5-4 win over the Cincinnati Reds Sunday, May 25, and he is 7-for-9 with two home runs, seven RBIs and four runs scored over his last two games.

Fantasy Tip: Arenado ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) had been stuck in a rough patch, but he has erupted in the last two games. With Colorado facing the slumping Cincinnati Reds for a couple more games, you may want to jump on the Arenado bandwagon at FantasyScore.

Rockies | Charlie Blackmon busy on the bases

Mon, 25 May 2015 18:56:00 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon went 1-for-3 with two runs scored, two walks and a career-high three stolen bases in a 5-4 win over the Cincinnati Reds Monday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Blackmon ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has shown an intriguing combination of power and speed, and he is on pace for 23 home runs and 38 steals. He makes a solid play at FantasyScore when he is facing a right-handed pitcher.

Rockies | Charlie Blackmon will play

Mon, 25 May 2015 09:33:14 -0700

Updating a previous report, Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon will play against Cincinnati Reds Monday, May 25, after OF Carlos Gonzalez (illness) was scratched from the lineup. Blackmon will bat first in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Blackmon ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) was scheduled to receive the day off but will play with Gonzalez out. He is hitting only .237 this month but has hit four of his six home runs in May. Owners on FantasyScore could consider using him in their starting lineups.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez scratched

Mon, 25 May 2015 09:12:17 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez (illness) has been scratched from the starting lineup Monday, May 25, because of an illness. OF Brandon Barnes will move to right field, and OF Charlie Blackmon will start in center field.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should look for an update on Gonzalez ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) after the game to see if he will miss multiple games. Blackmon ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) was scheduled to sit out the game but will take Gonzalez's spot in the lineup and could be a solid starting option.

Rockies | Troy Tulowitzki sitting out

Mon, 25 May 2015 08:16:10 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Troy Tulowitzki is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 25. SS Daniel Descalso will receive the start at shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Tulowitzki ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) should return to the lineup in the near future. Descalso ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting only .203 in limited playing time this season and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Rockies | Charlie Blackmon not playing

Mon, 25 May 2015 07:59:46 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 25. OF Brandon Barnes will take his place in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Blackmon ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and should return soon. Barnes ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has gone 8-for-13 since being recalled by the Rockies and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez not starting Sunday

Sun, 24 May 2015 12:50:37 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup against the San Francisco Giants Sunday, May 24. OF Brandon Barnes will start in right field and bat sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is receiving the day off. Barnes ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is 7-for-10 since being called up a few days ago and is worthy of consideration as a low-cost flier in FantasyScore.

Rockies | Daniel Descalso playing Sunday

Sun, 24 May 2015 12:38:19 -0700

Colorado Rockies INF Daniel Descalso will start at second base against the San Francisco Giants Sunday, May 24. 2B DJ LeMahieu is getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Descalso ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) offers salary cap relief for FantasyScore owners but is only batting .200 with two home runs and 11 RBIs this season. You can probably find better options for a slightly higher price.

Rockies | David Hale wins debut

Sun, 24 May 2015 06:16:03 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP David Hale allowed two earned runs over six and two-third innings in his Rockies debut Saturday, May 23, against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Hale isn't guaranteed any more starts, despite a strong audition. Hale could make for a stream option the next time he is slated to be in the rotation.

Rockies | Daniel Descalso drives in three

Sun, 24 May 2015 06:04:16 -0700

Colorado Rockies 2B Daniel Descalso homered and drove in three runs to help the Rockies win the second game of a doubleheader Saturday, May 23. It was Descalso's second home run of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Descalso ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has two home runs, four runs scored, 11 RBI and a stolen base in just 60 plate appearances this season. For a minimum-price option, Descalso can offer some upside on FantasyScore on the rare occasion he starts in the field.

Rockies | Ben Paulsen starting again vs. Giants

Fri, 22 May 2015 14:24:56 -0700

Colorado Rockies 1B Ben Paulsen is starting in left field and batting sixth against the San Francisco Giants Friday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: Daily players could take a low-priced flier on Paulsen, as he draws a favorable matchup against Ryan Vogelsong Friday. Paulsen has fleeting value in NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, although, he shouldn't be viewed as anything more than a desperation add.

Rockies | Adam Ottavino doing well

Thu, 21 May 2015 17:45:30 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP Adam Ottavino (elbow) said his elbow "doesn't hurt or anything" Thursday, May 21, two weeks after undergoing season-ending Tommy John surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Ottavino won't be an option for 2016 fantasy drafts, but the fact that he's doing well shortly after the surgery could point toward Ottavino returning at some point next season.

Rockies | Jorge De La Rosa becomes strikeout leader

Thu, 21 May 2015 17:44:08 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa became the Rockies' franchise leader in strikeouts Thursday, May 21. De La Rosa picked up his 774th career strikeout, moving past former teammate Ubaldo Jimenez.

Fantasy Tip: De La Rosa ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) went just four and a third innings, allowing five hits, three walks and three earned runs. De La Rosa owned a strikeout rate of 10.03 per nine innings entering this game, but he didn't help his 6.56 ERA. An xFIP of 3.33 shows that De La Rosa should turn this around eventually, but he'll be a risky FantasyScore play until he does.

Rockies | Brandon Barnes delivers in first start

Thu, 21 May 2015 17:00:41 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Brandon Barnes made his first start of the season Thursday, May 21, one day after being called up from Class AAA Albuquerque, and went 4-for-4 with a double, RBI, and run scored.

Fantasy Tip: Barnes received extensive playing time as a member of the Houston Astros in 2013 and the Rockies last year but never made much of his opportunities. Considering the Rockies already have a loaded outfield, there's probably little to take in here, especially since Barnes could produce only a .205/.266/.364 batting line in the minor leagues. Barring another injury to Colorado's outfield, Barnes is only a DFS play on FantasyScore.

Rockies | Justin Morneau won't return when eligible

Thu, 21 May 2015 11:44:34 -0700

Colorado Rockies 1B Justin Morneau (concussion) will not return to the team when he's eligible to come off the 7-day disabled list, and he'll be at least a few more days, according to manager Walt Weiss.

Fantasy Tip: You have to be at least a bit concerned with Morneau given his history with concussions in his time with the Minnesota Twins. In the meantime, Wilin Rosario ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has been a real nice value play since being recalled from the minors. He's hitting .293 (12-for-41) with a home run and five RBI in May.
