MLB | Ron Gardenhire not contacted for Miami job

Sun, 17 May 2015 13:28:50 -0700

Free-agent manager Ron Gardenhire (Twins) has not been contacted for the Miami Marlins job, according to a source with direct knowledge of the situation.

Fantasy Tip: Gardenhire had been rumored to take a full year off following his dismissal from the Minnesota Twins, but maybe this was too soon. He will likely end up someplace down the line, but for now scratch him off the Marlins list.

MLB | The wind is blowing out heavily at Wrigley

Mon, 11 May 2015 15:44:22 -0700

The wind is blowing out 30 mph at Wrigley Field where the Chicago Cubs and New York Mets are playing Monday, May 11.

Fantasy Tip: With two solid starters on the hill, FantasyScore players might not want to over evaluate the wind. However, you certainly can expect a little extra distance with any deep fly balls. Jon Lester ($7,000, 14.0% of cap) and Jacob deGrom ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) both lose a little luster with the news, too.

MLB | Rafael Soriano close to deal?

Sun, 10 May 2015 11:17:26 -0700

Scott Boras, the agent for free-agent RP Rafael Soriano (Nationals), said he is getting closer to finalizing a deal with a few teams. His asking price has reportedly come down, allowing more clubs an opportunity to afford him.

Fantasy Tip: Soriano remains the best reliever available in free agency. He has been linked recently to the Detroit Tigers and the Minnesota Twins. However, unless he can find a situation where he can close games, he won't have much fantasy value.

Tue, 05 May 2015 15:41:08 -0700

MLB | Rain delay for Braves-Mets?

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 15:49:41 -0700

The game between the Atlanta Braves and New York Mets may be in line for a rain delay at the start of the game Wednesday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: While it isn't believed to impact the full game, starting the pitchers from this game at FantasyScore is a risk. Eric Stults ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) and Dillon Gee ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) aren't strong daily options to begin with, either.
