The latest Craig Gentry MLB and fantasy baseball news

From -- thru  --


Angels | Rafael Ortega on the bench

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 11:34:18 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Rafael Ortega is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Wade Miley Sunday, April 24. OF Craig Gentry will start in left field and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gentry has recorded only one hit in his last eight games and should be avoided by owners in all leagues.

Angels | Craig Gentry batting second vs. lefty

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 12:30:44 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Craig Gentry is batting second against Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone Friday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: Gentry has been batting second against southpaws, as the right-handed hitter in the platoon with Daniel Nava in left field. Being on the smaller side of the timeshare restricts Gentry's fantasy value to cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues, especially since he doesn't offer much fantasy upside to begin with. Gentry owns a career .273/.355/.365 slash line against left-handed arms and is nothing more than a low-priced flier in daily contests.

Angels | Daniel Nava sits

Sat, 09 Apr 2016 16:21:58 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Daniel Nava is out of the lineup Saturday, April 9, with OF Craig Gentry hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: The left-handed hitting Nava sits out against lefty Cole Hamels. Gentry's .261 average against lefties the last three years isn't anything special to give him a start in fantasy tonight.

Angels | Daniel Nava could take over LF

Wed, 17 Feb 2016 16:20:31 -0800

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Daniel Nava is set up to get the most plate appearances in left field, though he would still likely sit against most left-handed pitchers. OF Craig Gentry, a right-handed hitter, would "start basically every third day" if that's the case, but there will probably be an open competition in spring training for the job. This would also include OFs Ji-Man Choi, Rafael Ortega and Todd Cunningham.

Fantasy Tip: Clearly, Nava and Gentry would have the highest ceiling out of everyone in this competition, especially the former, who slashed a respectable .278/.364/.403 with the Boston Red Sox from 2012-14. Gentry, meanwhile, has pretty much always been a platoon player so that will probably remain the case in Anaheim. Keep an eye on Nava if he prevails with the job.

Angels | Daniel Nava signs with Halos

Wed, 16 Dec 2015 15:38:23 -0800

Free-agent OF Daniel Nava (Rays) signed a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Wednesday, Dec. 16. Nava could form a platoon in left field with OF Craig Gentry next year. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Nava bounced around last year with the Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays as a reserve outfielder, and he hit .194 (27-for-139) in limited action over 60 games. He's a career .281 hitter against right-handed pitching but has very limited power and won't play everyday. He's strictly an AL-only commodity for depth if he's platooning.

Angels | Craig Gentry signs with Halos

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 14:25:25 -0800

Free-agent OF Craig Gentry (Athletics) signed an undisclosed major league contract with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Wednesday, Dec. 9.

Fantasy Tip: At best, Gentry will likely find himself in a platoon role in the Angels outfield, most likely in left field. He has basically zero pop, but he has reached the 20-stolen base mark multiple times in his career, so if he sees extended playing time for some reason, he'll be useful in deep mixed and AL-only leagues for his speed.

Athletics | Billy Burns not starting Sunday

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 11:56:21 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Billy Burns is out of the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Vidal Nuno. OF Craig Gentry will bat eighth and play center field.

Fantasy Tip: Gentry ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has always been known primarily as a defensive-minded outfielder, so FantasyScore owners should avoid using him this afternoon.

Athletics | Josh Reddick, Stephen Vogt out

Mon, 28 Sep 2015 16:16:53 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick and C Stephen Vogt are not in the lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim left-handed SP Hector Santiago Monday, Sept. 28. OF Craig Gentry is starting in right field and batting eighth, while C Bryan Anderson is behind the plate and batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: You should look to ignore both Gentry ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) and Anderson ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) in a pitching-friendly environment tonight on FantasyScore.

Athletics | Billy Burns remains out vs. Chicago

Mon, 14 Sep 2015 14:11:16 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Billy Burns (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Monday, Sept. 14. OF Craig Gentry is starting in center field and batting ninth against Chicago White Sox SP John Danks Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Burns ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) is likely to return sooner than later, but for now you'll want to keep him stashed on your benches. Gentry ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has shown he is a capable hitter in the past, but this season has been a mess for the veteran. He owns a .077/.159/.077 slash line over 44 plate appearances this year, and he is nothing more than a desperation flier at FantasyScore Monday.

Athletics | Ben Zobrist activated from DL

Mon, 25 May 2015 10:22:16 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Ben Zobrist (knee) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Monday, May 25. The team also optioned OF Craig Gentry to Class AAA Nashville.

Fantasy Tip: Zobrist ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) could be eased back into the lineup and could also see more time in the outfield. Owners on FantasyScore may want to see how he does in a game or two before considering him as a starting option.
