Reds | Joey Votto receives day off

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 07:47:40 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto isn't in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 2, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. 2B Skip Schumaker will start in left field and hit second in the order, while 2B Ivan De Jesus will start at first base and hit eighth against RHP Charlie Morton.

Fantasy Tip: De Jesus ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is hitting .317 through 73 plate appearances against righties this season. It would be nicer to see him a little higher in the order, but De Jesus has some upside to offer FantasyScore owners. Schumaker ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has an on-base percentage of just .305 for the season, and he has very little to offer FantasyScore owners despite hitting at the top of the lineup.

Reds | Billy Hamilton sitting out

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 10:39:56 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton is out of the lineup Tuesday, July 21, with OF Skip Schumaker hitting eighth in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Schumaker ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) isn't much of an option on FantasyScore. It's their fifth game in as many days so it's likely a routine day off for Hamilton.

Reds | Marlon Byrd out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 12:25:34 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Marlon Byrd is not starting Tuesday, July 7, against the Washington Nationals. 2B Skip Schumaker is starting in Byrd's place.

Fantasy Tip: This is a bit of a surprise as Byrd ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has a 10-game hitting streak and a .356 average during that streak. It is likely because Max Scherzer is pitching for the Nationals. Byrd has a .200 mark with four strikeouts against Scherzer, and Schumaker ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has three hits in six at-bats.

Reds | Skip Schumaker starting

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 12:57:27 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Skip Schumaker will start in left field and bat sixth against Matt Harvey and the New York Mets Saturday, June 27.

Fantasy Tip: Schumaker ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) hasn't done a lot with the limited playing time he's been given this year. It's probably best to fade him against Harvey today, unless you want to use more of your salary cap at other positions.

Reds | Jay Bruce sitting out vs. Pirates

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 14:46:36 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 25. 2B Skip Schumaker is starting in right field and batting seventh against Pittsburgh Pirates SP A.J. Burnett Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Bruce ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. He is currently in fine form and sporting a seven-game hitting streak with nine runs, three home runs, nine RBI and a .467/.500/.900 slash line. Against Burnett, Schumaker ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief for FantasyScore contests Thursday.

Reds | Skip Schumaker not in the lineup

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 14:07:33 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Skip Schumaker is not in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Kyle Ryan Tuesday, June 16. 2B Ivan De Jesus will start in left field and is batting second in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Schumaker ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. De Jesus ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has picked up at least one hit in five of his last six games, but owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options to use.

Reds | Skip Schumaker to be designated hitter

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 13:25:04 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Skip Schumaker will serve as the designated hitter against Detroit Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez Monday, June 15, and is batting second. OF Brennan Boesch will start in left field and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Schumaker ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has struggled this month with a .207 batting average over 12 games. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find other options to use. Boesch ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting only .132 on the season and should not be a fantasy option.

Reds | Skip Schumaker out of Sunday lineup

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 13:55:43 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Skip Schumaker is not in the starting lineup Sunday, June 14, against the Chicago Cubs. OF Kris Negron is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Schumaker ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is hitting .429 against left-handed pitching this season, so it's a bit of a surprise to see him down against lefty Jon Lester. Negron ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has a .152 average but is hitting .286 in the past week. He may be a decent low-price alternative.

Reds | Skip Schumaker leading off against Cubs

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 10:18:42 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Skip Schumaker is hitting leadoff and playing left field against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel Friday, June 12.

Fantasy Tip: Schumaker ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has only 18 hits in 79 at-bats (.228) and doesn't have much power to speak of, and he's also never stolen more than eight bases in a full season. Even at leadoff, that shouldn't excite you at all on FantasyScore, especially when facing Hammel, who could wind up as a top-20 fantasy starter in 2015.

Reds | Skip Schumaker receives start

Sun, 31 May 2015 08:34:02 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Skip Schumaker is starting in left field Sunday, May 31.

Fantasy Tip: Schumaker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has picked up four hits in his last seven games and is hitting .270 this month. Schumaker is one of the cheaper players available on FantasyScore, but owners should be able to find better options to use.
