The latest Ben Revere MLB and fantasy baseball news

From -- thru  --


Nationals | Two Nationals out Thursday

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 06:31:05 -0700

Washington Nationals OFs Ben Revere and Jayson Werth are out of the lineup Thursday, July 21, with SS Trea Turner leading off and OF Chris Heisey hitting seventh. Also, OF Michael Taylor draws in at center field and is batting second.

Fantasy Tip: There was a tweet this morning that Turner has two of the highest three top speeds in running out a triple this season. Those wheels are an underrated part of his game as he stole 25 bags in the minors and has two in the majors. He has upside against left-hander Julio Urias today. Heisey has made a living off of left-handed pitching, and he's a sneaky basement option in DFS. Taylor has an intriguing power-speed comination and is also a decent value pick Thursday.

Nationals | Ben Revere returns to lineup

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 14:38:58 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Ben Revere is in the lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates RH Gerrit Cole on Saturday, July 16, and will lead off. Rookie 2B Trea Turner will head to the bench after starting the last two games in favor of 2B/SS/3B Stephen Drew, who will play second base and hit seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Revere is 7-for-12 against Cole, so perhaps he is a sneaky DFS option given his speed (10 steals), but he doesn't bring much else to the table. Drew has shown a bit of pop so far (seven homers in 91 at-bats), but he can be avoided outside of NL-only formats.

Nationals | Ben Revere not in Friday lineup

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 12:13:05 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Ben Revere is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 15, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. OF Michael Taylor will bat seventh against Pirates SP Francisco Liriano.

Fantasy Tip: Revere is out because a lefty is pitching for Pittsburgh, but with his .224-1-17 line you have to wonder if Revere will lose more playing time moving forward. Taylor's average of .228 isn't much better but he does have some pop (six homers), making him a slightly more desirable play in daily leagues.

Nationals | Trea Turner, Michael Taylor starting

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 07:31:39 -0700

Washington Nationals INF Trea Turner will bat leadoff and play second base against New York Mets SP Steven Matz Sunday, July 10, with INF Daniel Murphy hitting third and playing first base. In addition, OF Michael Taylor will bat seventh and play center field, with OF Ben Revere receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Turner is 3-for-3 with a double and a walk this season and is worthy of consideration as a value play in daily fantasy games because of his upside. Taylor is batting .286 in 63 at-bats since June 1, and is hitting .262 versus lefties and .271 in day games. He should be viewed as an inexpensive flier option in DFS.

Nationals | Ryan Zimmerman, Anthony Rendon starting

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 08:43:15 -0700

Washington Nationals 1B Ryan Zimmerman and 3B Anthony Rendon are back in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP John Lamb Sunday, July 3. In addition, OF Michael Taylor will bat leadoff and play center field, with OF Ben Revere receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Zimmerman is hitting just .174 in 86 at-bats since June 1, and should be avoided in daily fantasy formats this afternoon. Rendon is batting .254 overall but has a .293 mark versus southpaws, although he is still looking for his first home run off a left-hander in 2016. Taylor hit .310 with two home runs, six RBI and four steals during the month of June and is worth considering as a value play in DFS.

Nationals | Bryce Harper, Ben Revere sitting

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 12:09:12 -0700

Washington Nationals OFs Bryce Harper and Ben Revere are not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds left-handed SP Brandon Finnegan Thursday, June 30. OF Michael Taylor is starting in center field and leading off, while OF Chris Heisey starts in right and is batting seventh. C Wilson Ramos moves into the cleanup spot.

Fantasy Tip: Harper and Revere have a routine day off against a southpaw. Get them out of your starting lineups. Taylor has a good combination of power and speed that plays well in the leadoff spot, and he's surely attractive as a low-priced outfielder in DFS. Heisey is more of a low-end play. Ramos is having the best fantasy season for a catcher this year and should be fired up everywhere.

Nationals | Big night for Ben Revere

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 04:20:11 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Ben Revere had four hits and stole three bases Monday, June 27, in an 11-4 win over the New York Mets.

Fantasy Tip: This game was a big pick-me-up for Revere, whose batting average is nearly 90 points lower than last year's. Revere is in a platoon in the outfield, so he should not be started in seasonal leagues. Even DFS is a risk, because the odds are he won't repeat a performance like this.

Nationals | Jayson Werth not starting

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 14:06:53 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Jayson Werth is not in the starting lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Zach Davies Friday, June 24. OF Ben Revere will start in left field, while OF Michael Taylor will start in center field and is batting second in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor is coming off a tough game but did have seven hits in his previous four games. Taylor should have some value in daily fantasy leagues but is not a great fantasy option.

Nationals | Ben Revere not starting

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 15:14:39 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Ben Revere is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Julio Urias Wednesday, June 22. OF Michael Taylor will start in center field and is batting first in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor seven hits, two home runs and two RBI over the last four games and is hitting .378 in June. Taylor should be a fine starting option in daily fantasy leagues because he is hitting .302 against left-handed pitchers.

Nationals | Ben Revere sitting second straight

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 16:18:35 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Ben Revere (rest) is not in the lineup for the second straight game Monday, June 20. OF Michael Taylor is once again starting in center field and batting leadoff opposite Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw.

Fantasy Tip: Just like Sunday, Revere will take a seat on the bench with a lefty on the hill, who also happens to be the most dominant pitcher in the game. Taylor had an outstanding game yesterday against the Padres, collecting four hits and two home runs, so he could be a sneaky value play in daily games for this evening. However, it's hard to recommend any hitter when they have to deal with Kershaw.
