Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez returns to action

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 11:51:19 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is back in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa Sunday, July 5, batting cleanup and playing right field. OF Brandon Barnes, who played right field Saturday, July 4, is playing left field and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) and Barnes ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) have each had success against De La Rosa, albeit with small sample sizes. Gonzalez is 2-for-4 in his career against the righty, while Barnes is 1-for-3. On the other hand, both hitters have combined to go 6-for-44 (.136) over the past week, so it's not a lock that they'll be productive in FantasyScore today.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez sitting out

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 15:04:32 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is out of the lineup Saturday, July 4, against a left-handed starter. OF Brandon Barnes is hitting eighth in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Barnes ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is in a 2-for-17 slump (.118) the last seven days and isn't a good option on FantasyScore.

Rockies | Brandon Barnes taking day off

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 10:50:01 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Brandon Barnes is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 1. OF Rafael Ynoa is starting in left field and hitting ninth against Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Hahn.

Fantasy Tip: Ynoa ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has 20 hits in 85 at-bats (.235) this year, and he's hitting only .118 (4-for-34) with one RBI on the road in 2015. That should make you want to avoid him at all costs, especially since this start will come in the pitching-friendly O.co Coliseum.

Rockies | Charlie Blackmon out of lineup

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 12:16:43 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon is not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner Sunday, June 28. OF Brandon Barnes will play center field and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Blackmon ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) should be removed from all fantasy lineups. Barnes ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is 5-for-19 in his career against Bumgarner and could be viewed as a means of productive salary cap relief in FantasyScore.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez still out

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 11:11:57 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez (hand) remains out of the starting lineup Thursday, June 25. OF Brandon Barnes is starting in right field and hitting eighth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa.

Fantasy Tip: Barnes ($2,100, 4.2% of cap), who is hitting .299 (29-for-97) with a home run and eight RBI, isn't a bad sleeper pick while taking hacks at Coors Field. He's hitting .316 (24-for-76) with his only homer against right-handed pitching and has a slash line of .354/.447/.477 at home this year.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez out again vs. Arizona

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 16:33:50 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez (hand) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 24. 1B Ben Paulsen is starting in left field and batting fifth, and OF Brandon Barnes is starting in right field and batting eighth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Allen Webster Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Gonzalez ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) in all formats Wednesday. His injury comes at an unfortunate time, too, as he was sporting a .900 OPS with six home runs and 14 RBI through 19 games in June. Paulsen ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) and Barnes ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) are upside value plays at FantasyScore whenever they play at home in hitter-friendly Coors Field, especially Paulsen hitting in the five-hole Wednesday.

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 17:02:47 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez (hand) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, June 23, against the Arizona Diamondbacks. OF Brandon Barnes will start in right field and hit eighth in the lineup against RHP Chase Anderson.

Fantasy Tip: Barnes ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is hitting .314 off righties so far this season, with 22 singles and seven doubles. Barnes can offer cap relief in Rockies' stacks on FantasyScore.

Rockies | Rafael Ynoa in lineup Sunday

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 12:58:06 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Rafael Ynoa is batting eighth and starting in left field against the Milwaukee Brewers Sunday, June 21. OF Brandon Barnes is getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Ynoa ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) only has two hits in his last 17 at-bats and isn't worthy of being used in FantasyScore this afternoon.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez out of the lineup

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 14:49:17 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Monday, June 15. OF Brandon Barnes will start in right field and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) probably is sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Barnes ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is hitting .317 with three RBI this month and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore to consider.

Rockies | Corey Dickerson not playing

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 08:58:59 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Corey Dickerson (foot) is not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Dan Haren Sunday, June 14. OF Brandon Barnes will be the starting left fielder and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Dickerson's ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) status likely will be updated in the near future, so owners should watch for any updates. Barnes ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has recorded three hits in his last six games but is hitting .297 this month. Owners on FantasyScore could consider Barnes as a cheaper option for their lineups.
