Rockies | Nick Hundley receiving a breather

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 16:19:43 -0700

Colorado Rockies C Nick Hundley is not starting Tuesday, June 30. C Michael McKenry is behind the plate and hitting seventh against Oakland Athletics SP Chris Bassitt.

Fantasy Tip: McKenry ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) gets a break by not having to face A's ace Sonny Gray tonight, but he's still a weaker catching play on FantasyScore while playing away from Coors Field. He's hitting only .154 (6-for-39) on the road in 2015.
