Pirates | John Jaso batting fifth vs. Philly

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 12:24:35 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B John Jaso is batting fifth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Zach Eflin Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Jaso owns a .348 on-base percentage against right-handed pitchers this season, and he grabs a fantasy boost hitting behind the three best hitters in the lineup. Still, he's nothing more than a flier in daily contests and fringe starter in cavernous mixed and NL-only setups.

Pirates | John Jaso out Wednesday

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 11:46:37 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B John Jaso is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 20. 3B David Freese is starting at first base and is batting cleanup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Chase Anderson.

Fantasy Tip: Jaso has been cold lately with a .237 average, no homers and only three RBI in July, and he could lose more playing time with Freese hot. Freese has become a notable fantasy commodity in deep mixed leagues now with his .286/.367/.459 slash line, 10 homers and 39 RBI. He's a decent value pick in the cleanup spot tonight.

Pirates | PIT reshuffles lineup Saturday

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 14:11:08 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B/3B David Freese is not in the lineup against Washington Nationals RH Tanner Roark on Saturday, July 16. 1B John Jaso is playing first and batting leadoff, OF Starling Marte moves from the cleanup spot in the team's previous game to second and occupy left field. 3B Jung Ho Kang is hitting fourth and will replace Freese at third, INF/OF Sean Rodriguez is batting fifth and will be stationed in right field while 2B Josh Harrison will slide down from first to sixth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Of the Pirates' top six hitters from Friday's 5-1 loss, only Andrew McCutchen will retain his spot in the order (third). Marte and McCutchen each have a home run in limited at-bats against Roark and are the best plays from Pittsburgh's lineup in daily or traditional formats today.

Pirates | John Jaso out Friday

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 14:07:19 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B John Jaso is not starting Friday, July 15, against the Washington Nationals. 1B David Freese is starting against Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg, and Freese will hit second.

Fantasy Tip: All indications are Jaso is getting a regular off night at the plate. That opens the door for Freese (.291-10-38), who should be a solid fantasy option.

Pirates | Jung Ho Kang starting Saturday

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 15:58:55 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Jung Ho Kang is in back in the lineup batting cleanup Saturday, July 9, against Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester and will play third base. 1B/3B David Freese will replace 1B John Jaso at first and hit second, while C Eric Fryer will bat eighth and fill in for C Erik Kratz.

Fantasy Tip: Even though Lester is coming off a horrible outing, it is hard to recommend any of these Pirates in DFS or most normal-sized leagues, although it is worth noting Kang is 3-for-9 and Freese is 5-for-13 against the southpaw. Fryer is worth adding in two-catcher leagues and may end up becoming the regular catcher in Pittsburgh before long.

Pirates | John Jaso, Gregory Polanco out

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 14:29:39 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B John Jaso and OF Gregory Polanco are not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia Wednesday, July 6. 3B David Freese will start at first base and is batting second, while 2B Sean Rodriguez will start in right field and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Freese has continued his terrific play and is hitting .409 with two home runs and five RBI in the last seven days. He should be an attractive option for owners in daily fantasy leagues. Rodriguez has gone hitless in his five games this month and can be avoided by owners.

Pirates | John Jaso out against lefty

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 15:15:47 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B John Jaso is out of the lineup Saturday, July 2, with SS Jordy Mercer hitting leadoff. 1B David Freese is hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Mercer and Freese are low-end considerations against lefty Rich Hill. Mercer is hitting .305 with three of his five homers against lefties. Freese is hitting .339 against left-handers.

Pirates | John Jaso out vs. lefty

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 15:34:36 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B John Jaso is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners left-handed SP Wade Miley Wednesday, June 29. 3B David Freese starts at first base and is batting cleanup. Also, SS Jordy Mercer is moved up to the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: Jaso usually sits versus southpaws, so don't read too much into it. Miley is returning from the DL for the start, so Freese and Mercer definitely have appeal in daily formats tonight. Freese has a prime opportunity to stuff the stat sheet hitting in the heart of the order, and he's done considerably better against lefties this year (.340/.407/.547 with two home runs).

Pirates | Two Bucs out of the lineup

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 07:56:35 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco (leg) and 1B John Jaso are out of the lineup Monday, June 27. 1B David Freese is hitting second, and OF Sean Rodriguez is hitting seventh. SS Jordy Mercer (head) is back in there leading off after exiting the previous game due to a head ailment.

Fantasy Tip: Freese is having a solid .290-6-30 season, and he's a low-end option against Scott Kazmir. Mercer hits .315 off of lefties and is worth consideration in DFS as well. Rodriguez has struggled this month and isn't worth using today.

Pirates | John Jaso not starting Sunday

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 14:06:34 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B John Jaso is not starting Sunday, June 26, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. 3B David Freese will play first base and bat second against Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw.

Fantasy Tip: Jaso is out because of the lefty vs. lefty matchup. Freese is hitting .291-6-27 this year and has done well when starting, so give him a flyer in DFS leagues.
