Pirates | Sean Rodriguez in the lineup vs. Texas

Fri, 27 May 2016 13:45:49 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Sean Rodriguez is starting at first base and batting ninth against Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels Friday, May 27. 1B John Jaso is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez owns a respectable .752 OPS against left-handed pitchers dating back to the beginning of last season, which makes him a potential against-the-grain flier in daily contests Friday. Just keep your expectations in check. In seasonal leagues, he is a low-end option in cavernous mixed and NL-only setups.

Pirates | Two Pirates sitting Thursday

Thu, 26 May 2016 07:41:23 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B John Jaso and 2B Josh Harrison are out of the lineup Thursday, May 26, with 1B David Freese hitting third and 2B Sean Rodriguez hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Freese homered yesterday and is hitting .350 against lefties this year. He's a solid option against Patrick Corbin. Rodriguez is hitting just .258 this month after a fast start. He hits lefties much better than righties, though, and he's a low-end option.

Pirates | Three Pirates record three hits

Tue, 17 May 2016 21:06:51 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B John Jaso, OF Andrew McCutchen and C Francisco Cervelli each recorded three hits and two RBI against the Atlanta Braves Tuesday, May 17.

Fantasy Tip: Jaso, McCutchen and Cervelli have all started the season strong and will be in the starting lineup most days. McCutchen and Cervelli should be starters in all fantasy leagues, while Jaso should be a valuable option in deeper mixed leagues.

Pirates | John Jaso, Gregory Polanco out

Sun, 15 May 2016 10:59:43 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B John Jaso and OF Gregory Polanco are not in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester Sunday, May 15. 3B David Freese will start at first base and is batting third, while 2B Sean Rodriguez will start in right field and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Freese has played well during the first six weeks of the season and should be used in most leagues. Rodriguez is hitting .400 against left-handed pitchers this seasons and could be a sleeper option in daily fantasy leagues.

Pirates | John Jaso, Josh Harrison out again

Wed, 11 May 2016 11:12:59 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B John Jaso and 2B Josh Harrison are out of the lineup again Wednesday, May 11, after the game the previous day was postponed. 3B David Freese is leading off, and 2B Sean Rodriguez is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Freese has a .282-1-10 line with a decent matchup against Alfredo Simon. It's questionable how well Freese translates to the leadoff spot, but Andrew McCutchen is behind him. He should see plenty of fastballs when the order turns over. Rodriguez still has a ridiculous .341-4-14 line, and both are worthy considerations today.

Pirates | Bucs backstops can't hit Wednesday's SP

Tue, 10 May 2016 22:39:10 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli is just 1-for-14 (.071) with three RBIs and two strikeouts against Cincinnati Reds SP Alfredo Simon, Wednesday's probable starter. C-1B John Jaso is 2-for-12 (.167) against Simon, while C Chris Stewart is 1-for-5 (.200) lifetime in limited exposure against Simon.

Fantasy Tip: It's a good idea to avoid Cervelli, Jaso and Simon in daily fantasy leagues and DFS play due to their struggles against the Cincinnati starter.

Pirates | John Jaso, Josh Harrison sitting

Tue, 10 May 2016 11:30:57 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B John Jaso and 2B Josh Harrison are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 10. 3B David Freese is starting at first base and hitting leadoff, while 1B Sean Rodriguez is at the keystone and is batting seventh against Cincinnati Reds SP Alfredo Simon.

Fantasy Tip: Leadoff is an odd spot for Freese, but the positioning atop the order gives him mild intrigue as a daily sleeper against the hittable Simon tonight. Rodriguez has four homers, 14 RBI and a .341 average in just 44 at-bats this year and also profiles as a sleeper to target in DFS action tonight.

Pirates | John Jaso takes a seat

Wed, 04 May 2016 06:59:38 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B John Jaso is out of the lineup Wednesday, May 4, with SS Jordy Mercer leading off. INF Sean Rodriguez is hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Mercer is hitting .319 with 13 RBI thus far, and he's worth midrange consideration against Jon Lester. Rodriguez has a .342-4-14 line on the season and is worth lower-middle DFS consideration.

Pirates | John Jaso sitting vs. lefty

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 14:11:14 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B John Jaso is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies left-handed SP Jorge De La Rosa Tuesday, April 26. 1B Jason Rogers is at first base and is hitting sixth. Also, SS Jordy Mercer moves up to the leadoff position.

Fantasy Tip: Rogers has a bit of power but has only four career long balls, and they all came last season. He's a desperation source of salary cap relief in DFS play. Mercer is more known for his glove but does carry a .300 early-season average. He's facing a pitcher that can yield plenty of hits, too, so he could be worth a sleeper selection tonight atop the order.

Pirates | Pittsburgh resting right side of infield

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 12:48:21 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B John Jaso and 2B Josh Harrison are not in the lineup Sunday, April 24, against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray. SS Jordy Mercer will replace Jaso in the leadoff spot while 1B Jason Rogers will occupy first base and bat fifth. INF Sean Rodriguez will slide over to second base and hit sixth.

Fantasy Tip: It's a rest day for Jaso and Harrison, each of whom are hitting well over .300. Mercer is 8-for-15 with a homer in the four games he has played during the Pirates' 10-game West Coast road trip and is a sensible low-cost option in DFS. Rodriguez has homered in each of the first two games of this series and appears to be in the middle of one of his patented power binges, making him a fine short-term pickup.
