Orioles | BAL interested in Jarrod Saltalamacchia

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 18:05:51 -0800

The Baltimore Orioles are one of several clubs that have expressed interest in free-agent C Jarrod Saltalamacchia (Diamondbacks), according to an industry source. Baltimore could pursue him if C Matt Wieters declines the team's one-year, $15.8 million qualifying offer.

Fantasy Tip: Any team that signs Saltalamacchia would only have to pay him the league minimum because the Miami Marlins are on the hook for the bulk of his $7.5 million contract next year. He hit .251 with eight home runs and 23 RBIs in 70 games for the Diamondbacks after being released by Miami early in the season.

Diamondbacks | Jarrod Saltalamacchia wants to test market

Tue, 06 Oct 2015 01:24:32 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Jarrod Saltalamacchia wants to test the free agent market in search of a starting role, but the Diamondbacks want to bring him back in a platoon with C Welington Castillo.

Fantasy Tip: Saltalamacchia may have better fantasy value seeking a starting job elsewhere, but history suggests he is a catcher who is best served as part of a platoon. If that is the case, Saltalamacchia's fantasy value drops significantly.

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo is not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers Sunday, Oct. 4. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia will start at catcher and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) played well after joining Arizona and should have fantasy value next season. Saltalamacchia ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is hitting .224 this season and is not the best option for owners.

Arizona Diamondbacks C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is starting behind the plate and batting sixth against Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis Wednesday, Sept. 30. C Welington Castillo is not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Saltalamacchia ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) owns a .302/.375/.721 slash line with five home runs and 11 RBI through 48 plate appearances in September. He is in fine form, and FantasyScore players should view him as a viable option for contests Wednesday.

Tue, 08 Sep 2015 16:52:28 -0700
