Pirates | Acquiring Ike Davis

Fri, 18 Apr 2014 15:27:22 -0700

The Pittsburgh Pirates are working with the New York Mets to acquire 1B Ike Davis, and Davis has approved the trade.

Fantasy Tip: The Bucs clearly aren't satisfied with Travis Ishikawa in a platoon at first base with Gaby Sanchez. Davis will essentially replace Ishikawa in that role. Davis' value probably won't increase all that much, but his playing time should increase if he's in a straight platoon with Sanchez.

Pirates | Not a cookie cutter platoon at 1B

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 18:17:48 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said Tuesday, April 15, that the platoon at first base is not "cookie cutter" in nature, meaning left-handed hitting 1B Travis Ishikawa will not start against all right-handed pitching. Hurdle said he anticipated giving 1B Gaby Sanchez more at-bats against right-handed pitching. He has made just three starts through the first 13 games. "It's not all hard numbers," Hurdle said. "We're kind of old school here. We'll look at what our eyes tell us and what our gut tells us."

Fantasy Tip: Neither Ishikawa nor Sanchez have a whole lot of fantasy appeal outside of the deepest of NL-only formats. First base is kind of a black hole in the Steel City.

Pirates | 1B, RF positions up in the air

Tue, 11 Mar 2014 09:02:52 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates manager Clint Hurdle continues to try and figure out the team's left field and first base positions this spring. 2B Michael Martinez, who is a switch hitter and can play second base and the outfield, is the only one who has distinguished himself in the game Monday, March 11. OFs Andrew Lambo, Jaff Decker, Chris Dickerson, Chris McGuiness and Travis Snider and 1B Travis Ishikawa are all in the mix. "We'll just keep giving them opportunities to play. We'll keep giving them at-bats and see where they take them," said Hurdle, who has begun to divide what he refers to as "separation" among the candidates. "But I'm not gonna seed them for you."
