Pirates | Francisco Cervelli, David Freese out

Sun, 01 May 2016 08:54:41 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli and 3B David Freese are not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Tim Adleman Sunday, May 1. INF Sean Rodriguez will bat sixth and play the hot corner, while C Chris Stewart will bat eighth and start behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart and Rodriguez should both be viewed as solid value plays in daily fantasy leagues this afternoon. Stewart is 5-for-18 with a double, home run and two RBI, while Rodriguez is batting .333 with two doubles, four home runs, 13 RBI in just 30 at-bats.

Pirates | Pittsburgh resting right side of infield

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 12:48:21 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B John Jaso and 2B Josh Harrison are not in the lineup Sunday, April 24, against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray. SS Jordy Mercer will replace Jaso in the leadoff spot while 1B Jason Rogers will occupy first base and bat fifth. INF Sean Rodriguez will slide over to second base and hit sixth.

Fantasy Tip: It's a rest day for Jaso and Harrison, each of whom are hitting well over .300. Mercer is 8-for-15 with a homer in the four games he has played during the Pirates' 10-game West Coast road trip and is a sensible low-cost option in DFS. Rodriguez has homered in each of the first two games of this series and appears to be in the middle of one of his patented power binges, making him a fine short-term pickup.

Pirates | Sean Rodriguez pushing for more at-bats?

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 05:54:24 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates INF/OF Sean Rodriguez went 1-for-3 with a solo home run during the Pirates 7-1 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks Saturday, April 23.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez is 7-for-17 to start the season with six runs, three home runs and nine RBI. His hot start could enter him into the conversation for a few more at-bats because he can start all over the diamond. In NL-only formats, Rodriguez could provide nice versatility as a depth piece, and you'll want to keep him in mind when he starts for daily contests.

Pirates | Jordy Mercer takes a seat

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 13:47:12 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jordy Mercer is out of the lineup Saturday, April 23, with SS Sean Rodriguez hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Sean-Rod has been brilliant in limited playing time with a .429-2-8 line in 14 at-bats. He's worth a low-end flyer against Rubby De La Rosa.

Pirates | Bucs blast three tape-measure shots

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 23:34:18 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jordy Mercer, OF Gregory Polanco and INF Sean Rodriguez each launched home runs in the win Friday, April 22, against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Mercer finished 3-for-4 with two runs scored and a walk, while Rodriguez drove in three runs.

Fantasy Tip: Polanco is a must-start fantasy option in most formats, while Mercer is a solid middle infielder option in NL-only play and deeper mixed leagues. Rodriguez is worth using in NL-only fantasy leagues and DFS play as a salary saver.

Pirates | John Jaso, David Freese sitting out

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 15:26:34 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B John Jaso and 3B David Freese are not in the starting lineup Friday, April 22. 1B Jason Rogers is starting at first base and is hitting sixth, while 1B Sean Rodriguez starts at third and is batting seventh against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin. Also, SS Jordy Mercer moves to the leadoff spot and OF Gregory Polanco drops to eighth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Rogers and Rodriguez don't move the needle all that much in daily fantasy leagues hitting near the bottom of the order. But they are facing a lefty in a positive hitting environment. Mercer has a little more intrigue as a low-end shortstop play, while Polanco loses some luster in daily formats against the southpaw.

Pirates | Gregory Polanco, John Jaso sitting

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 15:16:14 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco and 1B John Jaso are not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres left-handed SP Drew Pomeranz Wednesday, April 20. 1B Sean Rodriguez is starting in right field and hitting seventh, while C Chris Stewart is catching and hitting eighth. C Francisco Cervelli moves to first base and SS Jordy Mercer moves up to the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez and Stewart are low-end daily options against the lefty Pomeranz, who has looked sharp in his first two outings of the season for the Friars. Mercer gains the most fantasy value for the evening. He hit .284 (23-for-81) against lefties last year but had zero homers against them. Despite the move up the order, Mercer's fantasy value is capped without much power.

Pirates | Jung Ho Kang ramping up activities

Fri, 04 Mar 2016 11:12:37 -0800

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jung Ho Kang (leg, knee) is ramping up his activities in spring training this week, but it's still unknown if he'll be ready for Opening Day. He can take batting practice, field grounders and run straight sprints, but he hasn't been cleared for baserunning yet. There's also no timetable for him to appear in a spring game. 1B Sean Rodriguez is the likely option to open at third base if Kang is not ready.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the fact that Kang is unlikely to be ready until late April, he should still be an intriguing player in the late middle rounds because of his power profile at a thin position. He'll also be adding eligibility at third base, so that's a plus.

Pirates | Sean Rodriguez may start early

Sun, 14 Feb 2016 15:37:16 -0800

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Sean Rodriguez could start at second base if SS Jung Ho Kang (knee, leg) is not ready for the start of the regular season. 2B Josh Harrison likely would move from second base to third base to fill in for Kang.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez should see playing time at several positions this season but could receive consistent playing time if Kang is out. Rodriguez could be a late-round option in NL-only leagues since he can fill several positions for owners.
