Yankees | Chris Denorfia can make cheddar

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 20:17:28 -0800

Updating a previous report, New York Yankees OF Chris Denorfia will report to the big league camp after agreeing to a minor-league deal Wednesday, March 2. If he is added to the 40-man roster he would get a one-year contract of $1 million in the majors, and $120,000 in the minors. He could also earn $1 million in performance bonuses based on plate appearances: $250,000 for each 300, 350, 400 and 450.

Fantasy Tip: Denorfia is likely a depth player, and if he approaches those plate appearance totals than the season for the Yankees is likely not going very well. He is only worth a look in the deepest of AL-only fantasy leagues if he works his way up the depth chart.

Yankees | Chris Denorfia joins Yanks

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 09:06:00 -0800

Free-agent OF Chris Denorfia (Cubs) signed a minor league deal with the New York Yankees Wednesday, March 2.

Fantasy Tip: Denorfia is essentially a bench guy if he makes the active roster for opening day. He'll have to compete with the likes of Dustin Ackley, Aaron Hicks and Mason Williams for playing time in the outfield, but a significant injury could open up more time for him. For now, he's a flier in AL-only leagues.

Cubs | Chris Coghlan sitting out

Thu, 01 Oct 2015 07:06:09 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Coghlan is out of the lineup Thursday, Oct. 1, with OF Chris Denorfia hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has played sparingly this season, but he hit .284 with 14 homers (twice as many as against righties) from 2012-2014 against left-handers like John Lamb. Denorfia is a very marginal basement play on FantasyScore.

Cubs | Kyle Schwarber not starting Saturday

Sat, 19 Sep 2015 07:33:23 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Kyle Schwarber is not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha Saturday, Sept. 19. OF Chris Denorfia will start in left field field and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Schwarber ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) likely is just receiving a day off. Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has four hits in his eight at-bats this month, but owners should be able to find better options to use.

Cubs | Chris Coghlan not starting Sunday

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 14:46:22 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Coghlan is not starting the Sunday, Aug. 30, game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. OF Chris Denorfia is in right field and hitting second against Cubs SP Alex Wood.

Fantasy Tip: Coghlan ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) is hitting .158 in the past seven days, so with the left vs. left matchup it is an appropriate time to sit him. Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has four hits in five at-bats against Wood and may be worth the small FantasyScore price.

Cubs | Chris Denorfia batting second

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 15:43:50 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Denorfia is starting in right field and batting second against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw Friday, Aug. 28. 2B Chris Coghlan is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Coghlan ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) has been manning the outfield of late, but he rarely starts against lefties. Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) shouldn't be viewed as anything more than a desperation flier at FantasyScore Friday. Kershaw ($9,900, 19.8% of cap) presents an incredibly difficult matchup.

Cubs | Chris Denorfia leading off vs. Giants

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 11:15:31 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Denorfia is playing left field and leading off, and OF Matt Szczur is starting in center field and batting seventh against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner Thursday, Aug. 27. OF Dexter Fowler (shin, hand) is not in the starting lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Fowler ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) made a pinch-hit appearance Wednesday, Aug. 26, but with a difficult hurler on the mound, it is an opportune chance to allow him an extra day to rest his nagging injuries. Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) and Szczur are nothing more than low-end fliers in daily contests facing Bumgarner Thursday.

Cubs | Dexter Fowler sitting out vs. Giants

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 15:50:50 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler is not in the starting lineup Wednesday Aug. 26. OF Chris Denorfia is starting in center field and batting seventh against San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Fowler ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. While he is 0-for-8 over his past two games, Fowler owns a .301/.439/.544 slash line since the All-Star break with 30 runs, six home runs, 11 RBI and five stolen bases. He should be owned and started in all seasonal leagues. Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is a potential value play at FantasyScore, but you'll want to keep your expectations in check. Interestingly, Kyle Schwarber ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is batting leadoff Wednesday, but his value doesn't change with the one-spot promotion.

Cubs | Kyle Schwarber sitting Sunday

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 08:31:40 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Kyle Schwarber isn't in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 16, against the Chicago White Sox. OF Chris Denorfia will start in left field and hit second in the order against LHP Chris Sale.

Fantasy Tip: Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has a .241 batting average against lefties this season, and he should be avoided against an ace like Sale.

Cubs | Jorge Soler out Friday

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 10:01:56 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 14. OF Chris Denorfia is starting in right field and hitting seventh against Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija.

Fantasy Tip: Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has had a fine season in a reserve role for the Cubs, and he's hitting .298 (31-for-104) with both of his home runs against right-handers this year. However, he remains mainly a sleeper pick in one of your three outfield spots as a way to save some salary space.
