Arizona Diamondbacks C Tuffy Gosewisch isn't in the starting lineup Sunday, May 17, against the Philadelphia Phillies. C Jordan Pacheco will get the start behind the plate and bat eighth in the order.
Fantasy Tip: Pacheco ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) has two home runs on the season, but he is hitting too low in the order to make much of an impact on FantasyScore. Owners should look elsewhere, despite the excellent matchup against Sean O'Sullivan of the Phillies.

Arizona Diamondbacks C Jordan Pacheco is batting seventh and starting behind the plate against the Colorado Rockies Monday, May 4.
Fantasy Tip: Pacheco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is 5-for-12 with two runs, a home run and three RBI over the past four games. There is a reasonable chance he begins seeing more starts and at-bats, too, because Tuffy Gosewisch is sporting a .176/.222/.176 slash line through 72 plate appearances. Taking a speculative leap of faith and adding Pacheco in NL-only and two-catcher formats isn't out of the question. FantasyScore players will be interested to note Pacheco's .318 career batting average at Coors Field, too.

Arizona Diamondbacks C Jordan Pacheco will start against the Los Angeles Dodgers Saturday, May 2.
Fantasy Tip: Pacheco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has just 20 at-bats under his belt this season, but he is 3-for-7 with a home run and three RBIs in his last two starts, and a matchup against journeyman starter Scott Baker isn't exactly intimidating. Pacheco could be worth a flier at FantasyScore if you are looking to punt the catcher position to free up cap space.

Arizona Diamondbacks C Tuffy Gosewisch is not in the starting lineup Sunday, April 26. C Jordan Pacheco will be the starting catcher for the Diamondbacks.
Fantasy Tip: Gosewisch ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) started each of the previous four games, so he is receiving a day off. Pacheco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has not had much success at the plate this season and should not be an option on FantasyScore.

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt (hand) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured left hand. OF Alfredo Marte was recalled from Triple-A Reno.
Fantasy Tip: Goldschmidt is a big loss to fantasy lineups, and his season could be over with less than two months to go. Jordan Pacheco is playing first base Saturday, Aug. 2, but Mark Trumbo could see time there as well. Pacheco and Marte are NL-only adds.

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt was given the day off to rest Friday, Aug. 1, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. It was just his second day of rest this season. He has logged 965 2/3 innings played this season, and that's third-most in the majors. C/1B Jordan Pacheco started in his absence.
Fantasy Tip: It's good news that Goldschmidt has no injury and is just getting a breather. The right-handed slugger should be back in the lineup Saturday, and he'll definitely be in there Sunday. In the series finale he faces Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano, a left-handed starter. Goldy is hitting a robust .384 (28-for-73) with six doubles, three homers, 10 RBI and a 1.115 OPS against southpaws this season. Daily fantasy owners need to remember that when setting their lineups.
