Twins | Oswaldo Arcia injures hip

Sun, 03 May 2015 19:03:05 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Oswaldo Arcia (hip) left in the fifth inning against the Chicago White Sox Sunday, May 3, with right hip irritation. He was 2-for-2 with a run scored and an RBI before exiting.

Fantasy Tip: Arcia ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) should be considered day-to-day for now, but even when he is in the lineup, doesn't offer much in the way of upside at FantasyScore.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe heating up

Sun, 03 May 2015 18:33:22 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe went 3-for-5 with a grand slam, five RBIs and two runs scored in a 13-3 win over the Chicago White Sox Sunday, May 3, and he is hitting .364 since April 17. Plouffe credits working with hitting coach Tom Brunansky with his recent success.

Fantasy Tip: Plouffe ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has three homers and 10 RBIs in his last five games, and he could make a nice source of cap relief at FantasyScore while he is swinging a hot bat.

Twins | Kurt Suzuki out of the lineup

Sun, 03 May 2015 10:52:49 -0700

Minnesota Twins C Kurt Suzuki is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 3. C Chris Herrmann will be the starting catcher for the Twins.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) likely is receiving the day off and should return soon. Herrmann ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has seen limited playing time this season but is not a great option on FantasyScore.

Twins | Byron Buxton lighting up minors

Sat, 02 May 2015 13:21:31 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Byron Buxton is hitting .423/.515/.654 with six walks and two strikeouts in his last seven games at Double-A.

Fantasy Tip: Ordinarily we wouldn't deal with players like Buxton, except he's one of the hottest prospects in baseball still in the minor leagues. If he keeps hitting like this the Twins might give him a look later in the season. Buxton is worth a draft pick in leagues that let you pick up minor leaguers.

Twins | Phil Hughes to start Monday

Fri, 01 May 2015 14:34:41 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes (hip) is good to go for his next start Monday, May 4, according to manager Paul Molitor.

Fantasy Tip: Hughes ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) was in the midst of a fine start against the Detroit Tigers before his hip impingement knocked him out this week. The Oakland Athletics are a decent matchup for Hughes on Monday, but you may want to play it safe and avoid him at FantasyScore coming off a short outing.

Twins | Oswaldo Arcia out again

Fri, 01 May 2015 14:23:56 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Oswaldo Arcia is out of the starting lineup against a left-hander Friday, May 1. OF Shane Robinson is starting in center field and hitting eighth in the batting order against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana.

Fantasy Tip: Robinson ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) had two hits last night and is hitting .342 (13-for-38) in limited duty as a backup outfield for the Twins. However, Robinson has very little offensive upside for those looking for a cheap outfield candidate at FantasyScore.

Twins | Jordan Schafer returns

Fri, 01 May 2015 14:16:29 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Jordan Schafer (knee) is back in the starting lineup Friday, May 1.

Fantasy Tip: Schafer ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) won't be a popular or smart play at FantasyScore tonight coming off a knee injury, and he's hitting only .188 (9-for-48) with two RBI on the season. He's also facing a lefty, and he hit just .143 (7-for-49) with no homers against southpaws in 2014. Avoid him everywhere.

Twins | Tommy Milone headed to bullpen

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 14:48:02 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone will pitch out of the bullpen with the return of Ricky Nolasco (elbow) to the starting rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Milone ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) posted a 7.20 ERA through 15 innings over his past three starts, so he held minimal fantasy value to begin with. He can be dropped in all mixed leagues. He is a low-upside stash in cavernous AL-only leagues, as he could be forced into starting duty again at some point this season.

Twins | Ricky Nolasco starting Saturday

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 14:41:05 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco (elbow) will start against the Chicago White Sox Saturday, May 2. He will be a on a pitch limit of approximately 75 to 80 pitches, according to manager Paul Molitor.

Fantasy Tip: A pitch count is typically bad news for fantasy upside, so Nolasco ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) isn't a great option for FantasyScore contests Saturday. Outside of AL-only leagues, Nolasco will have to prove he can handle the American League before he warrants a roster spot. Take a wait-and-see approach with Nolasco.

Twins | Eduardo Escobar not getting aboard

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 18:06:39 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Eduardo Escobar has reached base just 10 times in 51 plate appearances so far this season.

Fantasy Tip: Minnesota hitters have struggled at the plate, and are striking out way too much and not taking enough walks. While Escobar ($1,600; 3.2% of cap) has hit safely in back-to-back games for just the third time this season, but he hasn't hit in three in a row yet. Avoid him for Thursday's game, especially against an arm like Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale.

Twins | Jordan Schafer injures knee

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 16:32:30 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Jordan Schafer (knee) left in the sixth innings with a mild sprain of the medial collateral ligament in his right knee Wednesday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Schafer ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is likely to miss at least a couple of days, if not longer, after injuring his knee. Shane Robinson ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) replaced Schafer in center in the game, and he could see a few starts in center field depending on how long Schafer sits out. Robinson doesn't tip the scales at all at FantasyScore.

Twins | Phil Hughes expects to make next start

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 14:47:23 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes (hip) said his hip worsened as the game went on Wednesday, April 29, but he thinks it's a minor injury and hopes to make his next start.

Fantasy Tip: Hughes ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) was coming off his best start of the year, giving up only two earned runs in eight innings against the Seattle Mariners last Friday, and he was pitching well today before leaving. He almost certainly won't match his outstanding 2014 season in which he went 16-10 with a 3.52 ERA, but Hughes can be useful in the right matchups at FantasyScore.

Twins | Phil Hughes injured

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 12:39:11 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes (hip) left his start early Wednesday, April 29, because of a mild hip flexor strain.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation to see if Hughes ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) will be able to make his next start. Hughes has struggled at times this season, so owners on FantasyScore may want avoid him for the time being.

Twins | Torii Hunter sitting out Wednesday

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 08:08:51 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Torii Hunter is out of the lineup Wednesday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Eduardo Escobar ($1,600, 3.2% of your cap) takes the open spot in the outfield today, but he has no FantasyScore appeal.

Twins | Brian Dozier resting Tuesday

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 14:44:55 -0700

Minnesota Twins 2B Brian Dozier is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 28. SS Eduardo Escobar is starting at the keystone and hitting sixth in the batting order against Detroit Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a light-hitting infield option that should be considered a weak play at FantasyScore Tuesday night.
