Giants | Ramiro Pena shines in start

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 21:51:15 -0700

San Francisco Giants INF Ramiro Pena went 2-for-5 with a double, run scored and two RBIs Wednesday, June 22, against the Pittsburgh Pirates while starting at third base.

Fantasy Tip: Pena will see occasional starts at the hot corner with Matt Duffy on the shelf, and he isn't a bad short-term option in deeper NL-only fantasy leagues. However, Conor Gillaspie is still expected to see more playing time at third than Pena. He is also a solid low-priced add in DFS play when he draws into the starting nine.

Giants | Ramiro Pena could play hot corner

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 20:38:33 -0700

San Francisco Giants INF Ramiro Pena might see playing time at third base while 3B Matt Duffy (Achilles') is sidelined, although manager Bruce Bochy said Tuesday, June 21, that 3B Conor Gillaspie will get "the lion's share" of the starts with Duffy on the shelf.

Fantasy Tip: Pena is worth adding in deeper NL-only fantasy leagues for his positional versatility from an eligibility perspective. He also might emerge as a value play in DFS if he starts to draw some starts.

Giants | Matt Duffy sitting with an injury

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 12:31:53 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Matt Duffy (Achilles') is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 20, after injuring his Achilles' Sunday, June 19. INF Ramiro Pena is starting at third base and batting sixth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy is having an extremely mediocre season, and his .253/.313/.358 slash line hurts the appeal of his counting stats (32 runs, four home runs, 21 RBI and eight stolen bases). You can hold onto him in deep mixed leagues, but he isn't worth keeping in shallow setups. Pena is a fantasy afterthought at this point.

Giants | Kelby Tomlinson placed on DL

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 23:43:22 -0700

San Francisco Giants INF Kelby Tomlinson (thumb) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained thumb. In a corresponding move, INF Ramiro Pena was promoted from Class AAA Sacramento.

Fantasy Tip: Tomlinson is a nice backup for the Giants, but he doesn't play enough to resonate in fantasy leagues. Pena has a career .244-8-53 line in 557 major-league at-bats but hasn't played in the majors since 2014. He's of no interest.

Braves | Andrelton Simmons on crutches

Wed, 06 Aug 2014 12:55:24 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons (ankle) was on crutches Wednesday, Aug. 6, but he is hoping to avoid the disabled list after spraining his left ankle Tuesday, Aug. 5. "We'll keep our fingers crossed that in the next two days the ankle reacts to treatment, and maybe we can hold him out for three or four days and not DL him. But take it one day at a time. I think that's why you use the word undetermined," manager Fredi Gonzalez said.

Fantasy Tip: For now, Simmons will be day-to-day, but if he's unable to return this weekend, the Braves will probably seriously consider putting him on the disabled list. Ramiro Pena replaced Simmons Wednesday, but Emilio Bonifacio could also play the 6 if Simmons is out for a while.

Braves | No Andrelton Simmons

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 12:09:19 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons (undisclosed) is not the starting lineup Thursday, July 24, against the Miami Marlins. SS Ramiro Pena is playing shortstop and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Simmons from any daily-transaction lineups. He has just three hits since the All-Star break, so it is likely a scheduled rest day to help him refocus.

Braves | Tyler Pastornicky to see plenty of action

Tue, 13 May 2014 18:08:29 -0700

Atlanta Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said Tuesday, May 13, that 2B Tyler Pastornicky will see a majority of the time at second base over the next few days. He wants 2B Ramiro Pena available to come off the bench.

Fantasy Tip: The team has grown tired of waiting for Dan Uggla to hit, and appear to be going a new direction. Pastornicky has also struggled offensively, but perhaps more regular at-bats will get his bat going. For now, he is only worth using in NL-only fantasy play.
