Mariners | Travis Ishikawa inks minor league deal

Sun, 17 Jan 2016 14:50:56 -0800

Free-agent OF Travis Ishikawa (Pirates) has inked a minor-league contract with the Seattle Mariners. Ishikawa can earn up to $900,000 if he spends the entire season in the majors.

Fantasy Tip: Ishikawa has eight major league seasons under his belt, but his average has dropped considerably in the past year and he has little, if any fantasy value.

Pirates | Travis Ishikawa back with club

Mon, 07 Sep 2015 21:42:31 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Travis Ishikawa (back) re-joined the big club after a two-game minor-league rehab stint with Class AAA Indianapolis. He has been sidelined since Aug. 23 due to a lower back strain.

Fantasy Tip: Ishikawa ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) could be a solid FantasyScore value if he draws a start down the stretch.

Pirates | Travis Ishikawa to DL

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 14:07:14 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Travis Ishikawa (back) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, Aug. 23, due to a lower back strain. In a corresponding move, SS Jordy Mercer (leg) was activated from the disabled list but he is not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: This hurts the Pirates' depth slightly. Ishikawa ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) was mostly in the background, but with Pedro Alvarez struggling and the team asking Aramis Ramirez to take reps at first base, the loss of Ishikawa may force Alvarez to be used a little more. As for Mercer ($2,400, 4.8% of cap), hold off until he has two or three solid games under his belt.

Pirates | Andrew McCutchen sitting out

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 08:27:17 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Andrew McCutchen is not in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Matt Harvey Sunday, Aug. 16. OF Starling Marte will start in center field, while OF Travis Ishikawa will start in left field and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: McCutchen ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup in the next game. Ishikawa ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has only one hit in his last 10 games and is should be avoided on FantasyScore.

Pirates | Starling Marte remains sidelined

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 15:23:31 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte (hand) remains out of the lineup Friday, Aug. 14. 1B Travis Ishikawa is starting in left field again and is hitting seventh against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon.

Fantasy Tip: Normally we wouldn't recommend Ishikawa ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) to FantasyScore users, but Colon is 1-4 with 19 earned runs allowed, four home runs given up and an opponent's average of .328 in his last five starts (29 1/3 innings). Ishikawa is still a deep sleeper in daily formats, but this matchup could prove worthwhile for those that take the chance.

Pirates | Starling Marte not playing

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 12:45:16 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte (hand) is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 13. 1B Travis Ishikawa is starting in left field and hitting seventh against St. Louis Cardinals SP Lance Lynn.

Fantasy Tip: Ishikawa ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is one to avoid on FantasyScore, as he's hitting only .174 (8-for-46) with one home run and eight RBI this season.

Pirates | Pedro Alvarez will be DH

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 16:33:15 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Pedro Alvarez will serve as the designated hitter against Minnesota Twins SP Mike Pelfrey Tuesday, July 28, and is batting seventh in the lineup. OF Travis Ishikawa will start at first base and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is hitting only .190 this month but does have four home runs and 13 RBI during that span. Owners could use Alvarez in their lineup but could also look for better options. Ishikawa ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has not done much since joining the Pirates and should not be an option on FantasyScore.

Pirates | Pedro Alvarez sitting vs. Royals

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 13:54:50 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Pedro Alvarez is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 22. OF Travis Ishikawa is playing first base and batting sixth against Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: It is unlikely Alvarez ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) will bounce back with the high-end power he flashed during the 2012 and 2013 seasons, but it doesn't mean he isn't a solid daily option in the right matchups. Ishikawa ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) could serve as an upside source of cap relief for FantasyScore players Wednesday, especially given his spot in the order.

Pirates | Pedro Alvarez will be DH

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 13:30:19 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Pedro Alvarez will serve as the designated hitter against Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura Monday, July 20, and is batting sixth in the lineup. OF Travis Ishikawa will start at first base and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has struggled at the plate this season with a .159 batting average but does have seven RBI during that span. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options. Ishikawa ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should not be used in any fantasy leagues at this point.

Pirates | Pedro Alvarez not in the lineup

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 09:58:19 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Pedro Alvarez is not in the starting lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Taylor Jungmann Sunday, July 19. OF Travis Ishikawa will start at first base and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is hitting only .159 this month, so he is likely receiving a day off. Ishikawa ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has only one hit in nine at-bats since joining the team and should be avoided by owners.
