Pirates | McCutchen, Marte out for Pittsburgh

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 07:34:14 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Andrew McCutchen and OF Starling Marte (foot) are out of the lineup Thursday, June 23. OF Matt Joyce is hitting fifth, and OF Sean Rodriguez is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Joyce has two homers and nine RBI in 36 June at-bats. He's a low-end option against Albert Suarez. Rodriguez is hitting .196 this month, and he's an underwhelming option in DFS.

Pirates | Three Pirates regulars out

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 14:35:03 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte (face), OF Gregory Polanco and 1B John Jaso are out of the lineup Saturday, June 18. 1B David Freese is hitting fifth, OF Matt Joyce hits sixth and OF Sean Rodriguez hits seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Freese is hitting .349 against lefties this year, and he's a decent flyer against Jon Lester. Joyce hits left-handed, but he hits lefties to a .313 clip. He's a decent low-end grab, too. Rodriguez's production has hit a freefall, but he hits .289 against lefties. He's an iffy low-end flyer.

Pirates | Sean Rodriguez starting at the 6 vs. Mets

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 13:33:38 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates INF Sean Rodriguez is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard Wednesday, June 8. SS Jordy Mercer is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez and Mercer are low-end options in cavernous mixed and NL-only setups, and Rodriguez is an ill-advised start in daily contests against Syndergaard Wednesday. Expect Mercer to see the lion's share of starts at shortstop going forward, and Rodriguez to revert back to more of a bench role.

Pirates | Pittsburgh sitting four players

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 16:17:31 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte (ankle), 3B Jung Ho Kang, 2B Josh Harrison and C Francisco Cervelli are not in the starting lineup for the second game of a doubleheader against the New York Mets Tuesday, June 7. OF Gregory Polanco will start in left field, while OF Matt Joyce will start in right field and is batting fourth against Mets SP Jacob deGrom. 1B Sean Rodriguez will start at third base and is batting sixth. 2B Cole Figueroa will start at second base and is batting seventh, while C Chris Stewart will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Joyce is probably the only player that has value among the new players in the lineup. Joyce is hitting .319 on the season and should be an attractive option in daily fantasy leagues.

Pirates | John Jaso out of the lineup

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 09:20:01 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B John Jaso is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago Sunday, June 5. 1B Sean Rodriguez will start at first base and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez has received playing time at multiple positions this season and is hitting .314 with one home run and six RBI against left-handed pitchers. He should have some value in daily fantasy leagues, but owners should be able to find better players for their lineups.

Pirates | Francisco Cervelli, Jordy Mercer out

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 15:40:50 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli (foot) and SS Jordy Mercer (elbow) are out of the starting lineup Friday, June 3. C Chris Stewart is behind the dish and is batting eighth, while 1B Sean Rodriguez is starting at the 6 and hitting seventh against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver.

Fantasy Tip: Both Cervelli and Mercer were injured and removed from the game last night. Their injuries aren't believed to be too serious, but check for updates on when they might return. Stewart is right at the Mendoza Line (.200) and is a low-end daily pick to save salary cap space. S-Rod has notable power for his stature and can be considered a decent value pick in DFS play against Weaver this evening.

Pirates | Andrew McCutchen exits with thumb injury

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 18:09:19 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Andrew McCutchen (thumb) left the game against the Miami Marlins Thursday, June 2, due to right thumb discomfort. OF Starling Marte moved from left field to center field to replace him defensively, with INF/OF Sean Rodriguez entering the game to play left field.

Fantasy Tip: McCutchen went hitless in three at-bats before leaving in the bottom of the sixth inning. The severity of his injury is not yet known, so check back occasionally for updates on his status. The 29-year-old is batting .254 with nine home runs and 23 RBI through 51 games this season.

Pirates | Sean Rodriguez playing right field

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 12:49:39 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Sean Rodriguez is starting in right field and batting seventh against Miami Marlins SP Adam Conley Wednesday, June 1.

Fantasy Tip: After driving in 13 runs in just 36 plate appearances in April, Rodriguez cooled in May with a .255 batting average and just four RBI. He is a flier in daily contests Wednesday, and now that he's slowed down, Rodriguez is nothing more than a depth piece in cavernous mixed and NL-only formats.

Pirates | Sean Rodriguez starting at the 6

Mon, 30 May 2016 13:42:50 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Sean Rodriguez is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino Monday, May 30. SS Jordy Mercer is not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez is having a solid season in limited playing time and boasts a .288/.395/.575 slash line with 18 runs, five home runs and 15 RBI through just 87 plate appearances. He is a cavernous mixed and NL-only option in seasonal leagues and a potential option in daily contests Monday. Mercer has been solid for Pittsburgh, but you need to aim higher in the majority of fantasy formats.
