Orioles | Steve Pearce to be out a while?

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 20:18:13 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 2B Steve Pearce (oblique) is iffy to come to off the 15-day disabled list when he is eligible early next month, manager Buck Showalter said Friday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: Pearce ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has battled injuries all year and is hitting just .224. It sounds like his latest injury could linger well into August, so it might be time to cut ties with Pearce in seasonal leagues if you haven't already done so.

Orioles | Steve Pearce placed on DL

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 19:31:24 -0700

The Baltimore Orioles placed 2B Steve Pearce (oblique) on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, July 22, due to a strained left oblique. The move is retroactive to July 19.

Fantasy Tip: Pearce has dealt with a number of injuries lately, so a rest period should get him right. Ryan Flaherty ($1,800; or 3.6% of cap) and Chris Parmelee ($3,300; or 6.6% of cap) might pick up a few more at-bats as a result of this move.

Orioles | Steve Pearce hitting second

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 13:05:04 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 2B Steve Pearce is hitting second in the order Saturday, July 18, against the Detroit Tigers and LHP David Price. 2B Jimmy Paredes is out of the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Pearce ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has gone 2-for-11 over his last three starts, with one triple and one home run. Pearce is hitting .267 against lefties for the season, and he can be used as a contrarian play on FantasyScore with the difficult matchup against Price.

Orioles | Chris Davis staying in RF?

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 10:20:36 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 1B Chris Davis has made 14 starts in right field this season, and he figures to start there again when the second half of the season starts Friday, July 17, against the Detroit Tigers. OFs Chris Parmelee and Steve Pearce have been playing first base. Davis isn't a stranger to the position, as he played 30 games in right field in 2012.

Fantasy Tip: The main reason for moving Davis ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) was done to keep both Parmelee and Jimmy Paredes in the lineup. Davis' owners can't complain, as he has added another position for eligibility, and in some leagues he's also eligible at third base. Davis remains an excellent source of power in all fantasy formats, but he won't do you any favors in batting average thanks to a poor contact rate.

Orioles | Steve Pearce on the trade block?

Tue, 14 Jul 2015 20:12:21 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 2B Steve Pearce might be traded in either July or August, although the team might not fetch much in return.

Fantasy Tip: Pearce makes an occasional start with the O's, but he probably could use a change of scenery if he wants regular playing time. FantasyScore players will find him to be a salary saver when he does start, but double-check those lineups daily to make sure he is included.

Baltimore Orioles OF David Lough is starting in left field and batting eighth against Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer Sunday, July 12. OF Nolan Reimold and 2B Steve Pearce are not in the starting lineup Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Lough ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is an ill-advised start at FantasyScore facing Scherzer Sunday.

Orioles | Chris Davis scratched

Sat, 11 Jul 2015 15:56:24 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 1B Chris Davis was a late scratch Saturday, July 11, with OF Steve Pearce taking his place in the sixth spot.

Fantasy Tip: Pearce ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has a tough matchup against Jordan Zimmermann, and we'd like to see some sustained success before using him on FantasyScore. As for Davis, it's unknown if it's an injury situation or he simply needed a rest day.

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 12:01:20 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 2B Steve Pearce is playing first base and batting second against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Friday, July 10.

Fantasy Tip: Pearce ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is riding a 16-for-44 run with a .927 OPS, and he has a respectable .206 ISO and .318 wOBA against southpaws at home. FantasyScore players should view Pearce as an upside source of cap relief Friday.

Orioles | Steve Pearce hitting cleanup

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 09:42:12 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 2B Steve Pearce is hitting cleanup Wednesday, July 8, against left-handed Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone.

Fantasy Tip: Pearce ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is a plug-and-play option on FantasyScore with his lineup upside. He hasn't done much this year, but his .278 average against lefties is 70 points higher than against righties.

Orioles | Chris Parmelee not in the lineup

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 10:05:14 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Chris Parmelee is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon Sunday, July 5. OF Steve Pearce will start at first base and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Parmelee ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) likely is sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Pearce ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has gone hitless in 10 at-bats this month and could be passed over by owners on FantasyScore.
