Diamondbacks | Jarrod Saltalamacchia to play in minors

Sat, 09 May 2015 10:37:28 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Jarrod Saltalamacchia, who was recently signed to a minor league contract, will report to Triple-A Reno and there is no guarantee he will be promoted to the major leagues, according to chief baseball officer Tony La Russa. He added that the Diamondbacks likely would not have signed him if he had not been willing to report to the minors. Saltalamacchia's contract allows him to opt out if he is not with the parent club by June 1.

Fantasy Tip: It's hard to imagine Saltalamacchia not being able to play well enough to unseat Tuffy Gosewisch ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) as Arizona's regular catcher. If he regains his stroke, he could be an affordable backstop option in FantasyScore down the line.

Royals | Jarrod Saltalamacchia on KC's radar

Wed, 06 May 2015 18:39:20 -0700

The Kansas City Royals are interested in free-agent C Jarrod Saltalamacchia (Marlins). As many as three other teams are believed to be interested in his services, and he could sign with a team as early as Thursday, May 7.

Fantasy Tip: Saltalamacchia would back up Salvador Perez in KC, so his at-bats would be minimal at best. However, if he lands in the right situation he could be useful in FantasyScore again.

Diamondbacks | Jarrod Saltalamacchia to the desert?

Wed, 06 May 2015 06:49:51 -0700

Free-agent C Jarrod Saltalamacchia (Marlins) is being pursued by the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Salty is worth snagging in NL-only leagues, but he's not an option in mixed leagues yet. Tuffy Gosewich has hit just .176 the first 24 games, and Salty could thrive in the Arizona heat.

Marlins | Jarrod Saltalamacchia likely to be dealt

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 00:18:06 -0700

Miami Marlins C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is likely to be dealt sometime during the 10-day period he is designated for assignment. The club has heard from five teams interested in his services.

Fantasy Tip: Salty's fantasy value was non-existent to start with, but it could improve a bit depending on where he lands. Still, remember how bad Salty was this year and steer clear.

Marlins | Jarrod Saltalamacchia cut by Marlins

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 13:28:49 -0700

Miami Marlins C Jarrod Saltalamacchia was designated for assignment Monday, April 27, after he returned from paternity leave. He started the season 2-for-29, and he's owed $14.2 million through the end of the 2016 season.

Fantasy Tip: Salty can now be cut in all formats. J.T. Realmuto ($1,800, 3.6% of cap), the team's rookie backstop, should receive a value boost in NL-only and deep mixed leagues as a result. He's hitting .265 (9-for-34) and should split playing time behind the plate with Jhonatan Solano.

Marlins | Jarrod Saltalamacchia to paternity list

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 12:04:00 -0700

Miami Marlins C Jarrod Saltalamacchia was placed on the paternity list Friday, April 24.

Fantasy Tip: Expect J.T. Realmuto ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) to continue receiving the majority of starts behind the dish for the Marlins, and especially with Saltalamacchia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) out of the picture in the short term. Realmuto is off to a nice start with the stick, too. He has gone 7-for-23 with a .391 on-base percentage to start the season, and he is a nice source of cap relief for FantasyScore players.

Marlins | Jarrod Saltalamacchia unhappy

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 14:55:05 -0700

Miami Marlins C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is unhappy about being benched, as C J.T. Realmuto will start his third consecutive game Friday, April 17. "I can't control this," he said. "I can't grab the lineup and put my name on it. Do I want to be in there? Yeah. There's not a day I don't want to be in there. I'm not going to sit here and complain. I want to play. But I'm not going to hurt this team. I'm not going to be the reason."

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Saltalamacchia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) in FantasyScore contests Friday, and his lack of playing time is a real concern for owners in deep mixed, two-catcher and NL-only formats. Realmuto ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is worth a look in daily contests Friday, and he is likely worth a speculative add in all the deep leagues previously mentioned.
