Twins | Oswaldo Arcia starting rehab assignment

Fri, 22 May 2015 14:35:39 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Oswaldo Arcia (hip) is slated to start a rehab assignment with Class AAA Rochester Sunday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: Arcia ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) was hitting .276 (16-for-58) with two home runs and eight RBI before his injury, and he's likely the team's best option in left field when he returns. However, he's merely a matchup play for FantasyScore users.

Wed, 20 May 2015 20:32:11 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Torii Hunter went 3-for-5 with three RBI against the Pittsburgh Pirates Wednesday, May 20.

Fantasy Tip: Hunter ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) his hitting .344 this month and has two or more hits in four of his last 10 games. Hunter could be a solid starting option on Fantasy because of his price.

Twins | Brian Dozier has 10-game hit streak

Wed, 20 May 2015 14:28:02 -0700

Minnesota Twins 2B Brian Dozier enters the game Wednesday, May 20, riding a 10-game hitting streak. He has seven home runs on the season and leads all second baseman with the most home runs (48) since the start of the 2013 season.

Fantasy Tip: Dozier ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is hitting .342 (13-for-38) with five home runs and six RBI during his 10-game streak. Pittsburgh Pirates starter Jeff Locke has allowed at least three earned runs in five of his seven starts last year, including his last five starts, making Dozier a very strong play tonight at FantasyScore.

Twins | Oswaldo Arcia will need rehab assignment

Tue, 19 May 2015 16:08:42 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Oswaldo Arcia (hip) will likely need a rehab assignment, according to assistant general manager Rob Antony, Tuesday, May 19.

Fantasy Tip: Arcia ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) should only be held in standard leagues if owners have available DL slots. FantasyScore owners will need to wait for some positive showings from Arcia before investing.

Twins | Eddie Rosario not in lineup

Tue, 19 May 2015 13:03:10 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Eddie Rosario is not starting Tuesday, May 19, against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Fantasy Tip: Rosario ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) looks like he is just getting the night off, so don't play him Tuesday. Shane Robinson ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting just .250 in May and has little fantasy value.

Twins | Danny Santana at leadoff spot

Tue, 19 May 2015 12:56:19 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Danny Santana is batting leadoff Tuesday, May 19, against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) had been batting in the bottom third of the order, sometimes as low as ninth, but his bat is warming up again. Santana is hitting .286 with two stolen bases in the past week, so the team wants a leadoff hitter with speed and average. Santana is worth the lower price. It appears the Twins bumped everyone down in the lineup, with leadoff hitter Brian Dozier hitting second and home-run threat Torii Hunter in the fifth spot.

Twins | Tommy Milone rolling in Class AAA

Mon, 18 May 2015 18:31:10 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone has pitched 23 and one-third scoreless innings with 33 strikeouts since his demotion to Class AAA Rochester (N.Y.).

Fantasy Tip: Milone was striking out just 5.16 batters per nine innings before his demotion. If Milone is able to keep this streak going a little longer, he'll be full of confidence upon his eventual re-call to the majors.

Rays | Chris Archer continues to own Twins

Sun, 17 May 2015 20:40:36 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer allowed one run on four hits and struck out four over six innings in an 11-3 win over the Minnesota Twins Sunday, May 17, and he is now 4-0 with a 0.75 ERA in four career starts against Minnesota.

Fantasy Tip: Archer ($8,200, 16.4% of cap) had been struggling in the month of May, but he has now delivered back-to-back solid outings. He owns a 2.47 ERA for the year and with 62 strikeouts in 54 2/3 innings, he is worth paying for at FantasyScore against most opponents.

Twins | Kennys Vargas sent down

Sun, 17 May 2015 15:33:24 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Kennys Vargas was optioned to Class AAA Rochester on Sunday, May 17. OF Eduardo Nunez was recalled in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: On one level this comes as a surprise, considering Vargas ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is 15-for-41 in May with a .366 average and two home runs. The team wants Vargas to cut down on his strikeouts. Vargas had been DH, so look for manager Paul Molitor to rotate different players in and out. Keep Vargas stashed away on your bench in deeper leagues if you can afford it.

Twins | Miguel Sano tearing up minors

Sun, 17 May 2015 15:21:33 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Miguel Sano was named the team's Minor League Player of the Week last week. He hit .379 (11-for-29) with three home runs, eight runs batted in and four doubles in eight games.

Fantasy Tip: Ordinarily this wouldn't be news, but Sano is one of the Twins' biggest prospects and after a slower start it looks like he's warming up dramatically. He could be a candidate for callup after June or whenever he would escape "Super Two" arbitration status, so keep an eye on him.

Twins | Kennys Vargas on the bench

Sun, 17 May 2015 07:54:52 -0700

Minnesota Twins DH Kennys Vargas is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 17.

Fantasy Tip: Vargas ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has played in three of the last six games but should return to the lineup soon. Eduardo Escorbar ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is in the starting lineup and could be a cheaper option on FantasyScore since he is hitting .348 with month with 11 RBI.

Twins | Kurt Suzuki sitting out

Sun, 17 May 2015 07:54:13 -0700

Minnesota Twins C Kurt Suzuki is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 17. C Chris Herrmann will be the starting catcher for the Twins.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has played in each of the last nine games, so he is likely receiving a rest. Herrmann ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting only .179 in his limited playing time this season and is not a great option on FantasyScore.

Twins | Four-hit day for Eduardo Escobar

Sat, 16 May 2015 18:10:01 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Eduardo Escobar went 4-for-4 with two doubles, an RBI and a run scored in a 6-4 win over the Tampa Bay Rays Saturday, May 16.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has been a bit boom or bust, but he does have three games with three or more hits in his last nine. If you are looking to gamble to save a lot of cap space, he makes a decent option at FantasyScore.

Twins | Jordan Schafer to the DL

Sat, 16 May 2015 18:03:11 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Jordan Schafer (knee) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained right medial collateral ligament Saturday, May 16. The move was retroactive to May 11.

Fantasy Tip: Schafer ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has been struggling all year, and this isn't the first knee issue he has dealt with. Even when he returns, he doesn't figure to have much value at FantasyScore.
