Diamondbacks | Welington Castillo had minor hand injury

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 18:48:00 -0700

Updating a previous report, Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo (hand) was out of the starting lineup against the Toronto Blue Jays Wednesday, July 20, because of a minor hand injury suffered after being hit by a pitch Monday, July 18. However, manager Chip Hale said he was fine and added that he was available off the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Through 69 games this season, Castillo is batting .261 with 10 home runs and 30 RBI. He should be viewed as a midrange catching option in all fantasy formats.

Diamondbacks | Welington Castillo not playing

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 10:14:51 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 20. C Tuffy Gosewisch is doing the catching and batting seventh against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman.

Fantasy Tip: Ignore Gosewisch in all fantasy formats Wednesday. The backstop has a .213 career average and only two home runs in four major league seasons. Castillo figures to be taking a normal day of rest.

Diamondbacks | Welington Castillo takes a seat

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 12:22:36 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo and OF Yasmany Tomas are both absent from the lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Kenta Maeda on Sunday, July 17. 2B/OF Mike Freeman will get the nod in right field and bat sixth, while C Tuffy Gosewisch will draw a start behind the plate and hit seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo is mired in a 2-for-24 slump with no extra-base hits over his last nine games, although today's non-start appears to a regularly scheduled maintenance day. Tomas has received only one game off since June 20 - not including the All-Star break and is scuffling as well, batting .150 with no extra-base hits in July. Freeman and Gosewisch should only be considered as last-minute options in NL-only leagues today.

Diamondbacks | Welington Castillo receiving day off

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 10:38:40 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo is receiving the day off against San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy Saturday, July 9. C Tuffy Gosewisch will start behind the plate and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Gosewisch is 3-for-5 since returning earlier this month from surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. The career .218 hitter should be viewed as a desperation source of cap relief in DFS.

Diamondbacks | Welington Castillo takes a seat

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 15:12:14 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 6. C Chris Herrmann is doing the catching and is hitting fifth against San Diego Padres SP Colin Rea.

Fantasy Tip: Herrmann has been a pleasant surprise for the Snakes this year, slashing .289/.353/.504 with six home runs and 27 RBI in 135 at-bats. He's a perfect second catcher in two-catcher formats, and he profiles as a decent value selection in DFS tonight against Rea.

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo is not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Albert Suarez Sunday, July 3. C Tuffy Gosewisch will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Gosewisch was recalled earlier this week and has not received an at-bat this season. Owners should avoid him in all fantasy leagues.

Diamondbacks | Welington Castillo posts big stat line

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 05:36:23 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo went 2-for-4 with two runs, a home run and four RBI during the Diamondbacks' 6-5 win over the San Francisco Giants Saturday, July 2.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo is a low-end starter in all fantasy formats and sits with 24 runs, 10 home runs, 30 RBI and a .283/.325/.469 slash line for the season. He's been particularly strong of late with seven runs, three home runs, eight RBI and a .898 OPS through his past 15 games, too.

Diamondbacks | Three D-backs resting Wednesday

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 09:23:43 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed, C Welington Castillo and OF Peter O'Brien are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 29. 2B Phil Gosselin is starting at second and hitting second, C Chris Herrmann is catching and batting sixth and 3B Brandon Drury is in left field and hitting seventh against Philadelphia Phillies SP Zach Eflin.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the juicy lineup spot, Gosselin is a light-hitting middle infielder that isn't attractive to those playing DFS today. Drury had a hot start to the year but has faded with limited playing time and is a low-end option near the bottom of the order. Herrmann has been a big surprise this year with a .298/.363/.529 slash line, six home runs and 26 RBI. You could do much worse than Herrmann if you're looking for a cheap value pick at catcher in daily games.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb back in lineup

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 12:19:18 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb is in the lineup Sunday, June 26, against Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis and will bat fourth. OF Rickie Weeks will start in place of Peter O'Brien in left and hit fifth, while C Chris Herrmann will be behind the plate in place of C Welington Castillo and bat sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Lamb plays primarily against right-handers and has been mashing them for the better part of the season, hitting .310 with 12 homers and 39 RBI in 197 at-bats, although he is only 1-for-12 in his career against Bettis. Weeks is 2-for-2 versus the Rockies' right-hander, but he's a risky bet in any format. Herrmann has been exceptional whenever he's received a chance to play this year and makes for a solid DFS play today as well as a great fill-in for any starting fantasy catcher around the league that is getting the day off.

Diamondbacks | Several ARI regulars return Saturday

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 10:47:31 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Yasmany Tomas, C Welington Castillo and SS Nick Ahmed (hip) are back in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa Saturday, June 25. In addition, INF/OF Brandon Drury will play third base and bat seventh, while 3B Jake Lamb receives the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Tomas has six home runs and 12 RBI during the month of June, including three homers in the past week, making him a viable outfield option in all formats. Castillo, Ahmed and Drury have been mediocre at the plate recently and should not be viewed as great fantasy options this afternoon.
