Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Neil Walker is batting sixth against the Miami Marlins Wednesday, May 27.
Fantasy Tip: Walker ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is a mid-tier second base option who is 3-for-8 with two runs, a home run and three RBI over his past two games. Moving down the lineup should help his RBI potential, but it is worth noting his struggles against left-handed pitchers this season (.526 OPS over 28 plate appearances).

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Josh Harrison was dropped to seventh in the batting order Wednesday, May 6. 2B Neil Walker is in the two-hole against Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake.
Fantasy Tip: Harrison ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) hasn't been able to put it together this year after a breakout in 2015. He's hitting just .188 (18-for-96) with two home runs and six RBI. His owners are hoping a drop in the order can jump start him, but you'll probably want to stay away from him until that happens. Walker ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is an intriguing player for FantasyScore rosters today in the two-hole, and he's hitting .262 (11-for-42) with a home run and 12 RBI in his career against Leake. He has value play written all over him.

Fantasy Tip: It is a scheduled night off for Walker, so make sure to remove him from all your fantasy lineups. Sean Rodriguez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is starting at the keystone and batting eighth. Consider anything other than cap relief a miraculous return from Rodriguez, and FantasyScore players should likely aim higher. Rodriguez hit just .200 off of right-handed pitchers last season.
