Pirates | Neil Walker demoted to eight-hole

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 13:08:58 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Neil Walker is batting eighth against Cincinnati Reds SP David Holmberg Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: It is an interesting relegation. Walker ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has eight runs, three home runs, nine RBI and a .273/.279/.485 slash line over his past 15 games, which is hardly production to turn your nose up at. Still, Walker's fantasy value takes a hit at FantasyScore, and if he sticks down at the bottom of the lineup, his year-long value is diminished, too.

Pirates | Neil Walker moves down order

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 13:31:14 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Neil Walker was dropped to seventh in the order Saturday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) had been in the two-hole most days, but with Aramis Ramirez coming aboard, Starling Marte is hitting second. Walker has a .318-4-14 line this month, but he might be too costly on FantasyScore so low in the order.

Pirates | Neil Walker enjoying July

Wed, 15 Jul 2015 15:58:18 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Neil Walker has a .370/.393/.574 slash line with 12 runs, three home runs, 10 RBI and a stolen base through 12 games in July.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is a solid middle-of-the-pack second baseman in the majority of fantasy formats. He has established himself as a reliable contributor, and while hot, he is an excellent FantasyScore option.

Pirates | Neil Walker with three more hits

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 19:51:08 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Neil Walker went 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in a 5-2 win over the St. Louis Cardinals Friday, July 10.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) has been on a tear in July, hitting .405 with 10 RBI and 11 runs scored in 10 games. He is providing great production for a mid-level price at FantasyScore, and he deserves daily consideration right now.

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 07:57:21 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Neil Walker is 13-for-28 (.464) with two homers and nine RBI the last seven days.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is at a price point that presents a lot of upside on FantasyScore during his hot stretch.

Pirates | Neil Walker stays hot

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 17:07:10 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Neil Walker collected his second straight four-hit game Thursday, July 2, against the Detroit Tigers. Walker went 10-for-17 in the series, while driving in seven runs, and he raised his batting average by more than 20 points.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) now has hits in six consecutive games. Walker has a considerable preference for right-handed pitching, and he needs to be in FantasyScore lineups for the next few days.

Pirates | Jordy Mercer up to No. 2

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 09:22:30 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jordy Mercer was moved up to the two-hole Thursday, July 2, with 2B Neil Walker dropped to seventh against a left-hander.

Fantasy Tip: Mercer ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is a good plug-and-play against the youthful Kyle Ryan today. Mercer is hitting .448 with six RBI in the last seven days. Walker ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has a .417-2-4 line the last seven days, but he's hitting just .200 against lefties this year. Avoid Walker against the lefty.

Pirates | Neil Walker homers twice

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 20:54:52 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Neil Walker went 4-for-6 with two home runs, three RBI, three runs scored and a steal in a 9-3 win over the Detroit Tigers Wednesday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is riding a five-game hitting streak, and he has multiple hits in three of his last four games. He could make a nice lower-priced sleeper at FantasyScore while he is swinging the bat well.

Pirates | Neil Walker on the bench

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 09:47:57 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Neil Walker is not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Alex Wood Sunday, June 28. 3B Josh Harrison will start at second base and is batting first in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has struggled against left-handed pitchers, which is why he is sitting out. Harrison ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) has at least one hit in 14 of his last 16 games and is a solid starting option on FantasyScore.

Pirates | Neil Walker moved to second in order

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 12:32:29 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Neil Walker is batting second against Atlanta Braves SP Williams Perez Friday, June 26.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) hasn't driven in a run since Friday, June 5, and sports a .175/.298/.225 slash line over the 12-game stretch. At his manageable cap hit, he projects as a flier for FantasyScore contests, but it might be wiser to aim for someone in better form.
