Pirates | Pedro Alvarez will be DH

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 14:29:01 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Pedro Alvarez will serve as the designated hitter against Kansas City Royals SP Jason Vargas Tuesday, July 21, and is batting sixth in the lineup. OF Sean Rodriguez will start at first base and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is receiving a rare start against a left-handed pitcher but is not a great option on FantasyScore since he is hitting .179 against lefties this season. Rodriguez ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is hitting under .100 this month and should be avoided by owners.

Pirates | Starling Marte remains out vs. Friars

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 13:43:05 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte (oblique) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 8. OF Sean Rodriguez is playing left field and batting eighth against San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: This is the third game Marte ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) has missed, and there is a chance the Pirates take the conservative route and hold him out through the All-Star break. Rodriguez ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is a low-end outfield option in all fantasy formats, including FantasyScore. He does see a fleeting boost in value in cavernous mixed and NL-only formats, though.

Pirates | Starling Marte out Tuesday

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 12:51:17 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte (oblique) is not playing Tuesday, July 7, against the San Diego Padres. 1B Sean Rodriguez is playing instead.

Fantasy Tip: Marte ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) is out for the second day in a row but the team doesn't believe he will need a DL stint. Plan accordingly and bench Marte. Rodriguez ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is hitting .133 in the past week and shouldn't be an option, even though he is hitting .500 against Padres starter Tyson Ross.

Pirates | Starling Marte sitting vs. Friars

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 12:29:29 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte (side) is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 6. OF Sean Rodriguez is starting in left field and batting eighth against San Diego Padres SP James Shields Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Marte ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) left the game early Sunday, July 5, so fantasy owners will want to be on the lookout for updates concerning his health. Make sure to check back. Rodriguez ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is hardly a viable FantasyScore option Monday, as his .649 OPS against righties is rather underwhelming.

Pirates | Pedro Alvarez resting

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 07:34:14 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Pedro Alvarez is out of the lineup Thursday, July 2, with 2B Sean Rodriguez in his spot.

Fantasy Tip: Sean-Rod ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) and his .250-3-5 line isn't much of an option on FantasyScore despite the matchup against youngster Kyle Ryan.

Pirates | Sean Rodriguez draws into lineup

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 12:42:21 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Sean Rodriguez is starting at first base and hitting ninth against Detroit Tigers SP Alfredo Simon Wednesday, July 1. 1B Pedro Alvarez is serving as the designated hitter in an American League park.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) isn't very attractive to FantasyScore gamers normally, let alone hitting at the bottom of the team's lineup. Consider him a very weak sleeper pick.

Pirates | Pedro Alvarez sitting out

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 10:01:40 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Pedro Alvarez is not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Alex Wood Sunday, June 28. OF Sean Rodriguez will start at first base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) likely is sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Rodriguez ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is hitting .235 this month with only one RBI and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.
