Pirates | John Jaso, Gregory Polanco out

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 13:05:36 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B John Jaso and OF Gregory Polanco are not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP James Paxton Wednesday, July 27. 3B David Freese will start at first base and is batting second. 2B Sean Rodriguez will start in right field and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Freese has only three hits in his last 17 at-bats but is hitting .328 with four home runs and 11 RBI against left-handed pitchers this season. He should be a fine starting candidat for owners in daily fantasy leagues. Rodriguez has also posted solid numbers against lefties in 2016, but owners should be able to find better options to use.

Pirates | Pittsburgh sitting four starters

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 09:44:49 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Andrew McCutchen, 3B Jung Ho Kang, C Francisco Cervelli and SS Jordy Mercer are not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Vincent Velasquez Sunday, July 24. OF Starling Marte will start in center field, while OF Gregory Polanco will start in left field. 3B David Freese will start at third base and is batting third. OF Matt Joyce will start in right field and is batting fifth. C Elias Diaz will start at catcher and is batting seventh, while 2B Sean Rodriguez will start at shortstop and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Freese is hitting only .190 over the last seven games but should still be a decent starting option in some leagues. Joyce is hitting .207 in July and probably can be avoided in most leagues. Diaz was recently called up from the minor leagues and should not be used by owners at this point. Rodriguez is hitting .251 with 10 home runs this season but should only be used in NL-only leagues.

Pirates | PIT reshuffles lineup Saturday

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 14:11:08 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B/3B David Freese is not in the lineup against Washington Nationals RH Tanner Roark on Saturday, July 16. 1B John Jaso is playing first and batting leadoff, OF Starling Marte moves from the cleanup spot in the team's previous game to second and occupy left field. 3B Jung Ho Kang is hitting fourth and will replace Freese at third, INF/OF Sean Rodriguez is batting fifth and will be stationed in right field while 2B Josh Harrison will slide down from first to sixth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Of the Pirates' top six hitters from Friday's 5-1 loss, only Andrew McCutchen will retain his spot in the order (third). Marte and McCutchen each have a home run in limited at-bats against Roark and are the best plays from Pittsburgh's lineup in daily or traditional formats today.

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 09:07:59 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez is hitting .250 with three home runs and five RBI over the last seven days. He could be a sleeper option for owners in daily fantasy leagues. Frazier is hitting .350 in limited playing time this season, but owners should be able to find better players to use.

Pirates | Jung Ho Kang, Jordy Mercer resting

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 11:47:15 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Jung Ho Kang and SS Jordy Mercer are not in the starting lineup Friday, July 8. 3B David Freese is starting at third base and hitting cleanup, while 1B Sean Rodriguez is at the 6 and is batting seventh against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta.

Fantasy Tip: On top of a potential suspension depending on sexual assault allegations, Kang has been slumping lately, so go with other options if you have them. Freese, on the other hand, is gaining steam and has hits in all six games this month, going 8-for-20 (.400) with two home runs and five RBI. He's become relevant in deep mixed leagues with more consistent playing time. S-Rod doesn't play enough to be relevant in mixed leagues, and he's a risky DFS pick against Arrieta.

Fantasy Tip: Freese has continued his terrific play and is hitting .409 with two home runs and five RBI in the last seven days. He should be an attractive option for owners in daily fantasy leagues. Rodriguez has gone hitless in his five games this month and can be avoided by owners.

Pirates | Two Bucs out of the lineup

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 07:56:35 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco (leg) and 1B John Jaso are out of the lineup Monday, June 27. 1B David Freese is hitting second, and OF Sean Rodriguez is hitting seventh. SS Jordy Mercer (head) is back in there leading off after exiting the previous game due to a head ailment.

Fantasy Tip: Freese is having a solid .290-6-30 season, and he's a low-end option against Scott Kazmir. Mercer hits .315 off of lefties and is worth consideration in DFS as well. Rodriguez has struggled this month and isn't worth using today.
