Pirates | Gregory Polanco given a breather

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 13:51:28 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco is not in the lineup against San Francisco Giants left-handed SP Madison Bumgarner Friday, Aug. 21. 1B Sean Rodriguez draws the start in right field and is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has only 43 hits in 188 at-bats this year (.229 average) with three home runs and nine RBI. He's one to avoid on FantasyScore tonight against the MadBum while hitting at the bottom of the lineup.

Pirates | Neil Walker resting vs. 'Zona

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 13:28:11 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Neil Walker is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 19. 1B Sean Rodriguez is starting at second base and batting eighth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is having an inconsistent season but has been an extra-base machine in August. He has two doubles, two triples and three home runs to fuel a .500 slugging percentage. Make sure to avoid him in all formats Wednesday, though. Theoretically, Rodriguez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) owns the handedness advantage against Ray ($5,100, 10.2% of cap), but Rodriguez is sporting an uninspiring .561 OPS over 80 plate appearances against lefties this season. FantasyScore players should likely aim higher.

Pirates | Starling Marte out Saturday

Sat, 15 Aug 2015 15:28:18 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte (hand) is out of the lineup Saturday, Aug. 15, with OF Sean Rodriguez hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Sean-Rod ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) faces lefty Jon Niese, but his .215-3-7 line doesn't bode well for a FantasyScore start.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) hasn't done much at all at the plate this year and should be left alone in all formats for the start tonight.

Pirates | Starling Marte leaves with hand injury

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 18:18:28 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte (hand) left the game against the St. Louis Cardinals Wednesday, Aug. 12, due to discomfort in his left hand. He suffered the injury in his first at-bat after fouling off a pitch from SP Michael Wacha in the first inning but remained in the game after being examined by the assistant trainer. Marte left the game after completing his second at-bat in the top of the third inning and was replaced by INF/OF Sean Rodriguez.

Fantasy Tip: The team said Marte ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) was being treated and evaluated but the severity of his injury remains unknown. Check back for further updates on his status.

Pirates | Neil Walker sitting out

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 11:51:44 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Neil Walker is not in the lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers left-handed SP Clayton Kershaw Friday, Aug. 7. 1B Sean Rodriguez is starting at the keystone and hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: You shouldn't even consider starting Rodriguez ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) for a second against the dominant Kershaw. Rodriguez has a weak average of just .217 (34-for-157) with only three home runs and seven RBI.

Pirates | Neil Walker will not start

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 12:01:03 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Neil Walker is not in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester Monday, Aug. 3. OF Sean Rodriguez will start in second base and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has struggled against left-handed pitchers this season, so he receives a day off. Rodriguez ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has only three hits in his last nine games and should not be a starting option on FantasyScore.

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Aramis Ramirez isn't in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 2, against the Cincinnati Reds. 3B Sean Rodriguez will start and hit eighth in the lineup against RHP Keyvius Sampson.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) can be avoided on FantasyScore, as he carries far too much risk of posting zero points.

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 | Sean Rodriguez receives start

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 13:54:07 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Sean Rodriguez will start at third base against Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura Monday, July 20, and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) likely will receive more starts because of the injuries to Josh Harrison and Jordy Mercer. He has picked up only three hits in 35 at-bats this month and should be avoided by owners on FantasyScore.
