Wed, 19 Aug 2015 13:19:40 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 19. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is starting behind the plate and batting fifth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP J.A. Happ Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has 13 home runs over 188 plate appearances with a .915 OPS since joining Arizona, and he is a great option in the majority of fantasy formats. FantasyScore players should view Saltalamacchia ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) as a viable budget play because of his respectable .280/.333/.520 slash line against lefties this season. Just note, it is a smaple size of only 27 plate appearances.

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 11. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is behind the dish and is hitting sixth against Philadelphia Phillies SP David Buchanan.

Fantasy Tip: Every now and then, Salty ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) will run into one, but otherwise he's not much of an offensive force and mainly is a source of salary cap relief on FantasyScore.

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 11:31:08 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo has hit five home runs in his last six games, and he has nine doubles, nine home runs and 19 RBI since June 12.

Fantasy Tip: The move to Arizona was the best thing for Castillo's ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) fantasy value in all leagues. He's now receiving starter's at-bats ahead of backup Jarrod Saltalamacchia. While he's hot, continue to look to him as a great value pick on FantasyScore.
