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.

Diamondbacks | Arizona resting two players

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 15:19:35 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo and SS Nick Ahmed are not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Anderson Friday, June 24. 2B Jean Segura will start at shortstop, while 2B Phil Gosselin will start at second base and is batting fourth. C Chris Herrmann will start at catcher and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Gosselin has been producing at the plate recently and has a .353 batting average and one RBI over the last seven days. He could be a sleeper option in some daily fantasy leagues. Herrmann is hitting .276 in June and should be a starting option in two-catcher leagues and some daily leagues.

Diamondbacks | David Peralta remains sidelined Sunday

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 08:19:30 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF David Peralta (back), INF Jean Segura and C Welington Castillo are not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Zach Eflin Sunday, June 19. INF Phil Gosselin will lead off and play second base, C Chris Herrmann will bat fifth and start behind the plate, OF Brandon Drury will bat seventh and play right field and SS Nick Ahmed will bat eighth and play shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Herrmann and Drury are the best bets for daily fantasy players searching for productive sources of salary cap relief, although both players have struggled recently. Herrmann is batting .282 with six home runs and 23 RBI through 103 at-bats but is just 2-for-11 over the past two weeks. Drury is hitting .270 with eight home runs and 18 RBI through 55 games but has collected only nine hits over his last 53 at-bats (.170), while striking out 18 times.

Diamondbacks | Welington Castillo, Yasmany Tomas out

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 13:56:18 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo and OF Yasmany Tomas are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 14. C Chris Herrmann is behind the plate and is hitting sixth, while OF Michael Bourn is starting in center field and is batting ninth against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Kenta Maeda.

Fantasy Tip: Herrmann has surprised folks this year in a backup role with a .286 average and six home runs to go with 22 RBI in just 98 at-bats. He has notable pop from the left side and is a sleeper catcher selection in daily setups. Bourn has come back from the dead to provide decent numbers and excellent defense. He loses a lot of DFS luster hitting ninth, however.

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 16:33:43 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo is out of the lineup Saturday, June 11, with C Chris Herrmann hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Herrmann has cooled a bit after a hot start, and he faces Jose Fernandez tonight. It's not a good matchup for DFS usage.

Diamondbacks | Two D-Backs sit

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 10:41:26 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo and OF Michael Bourn are out of the lineup Wednesday, June 8. OF Rickie Weeks is hitting fifth and C Chris Herrmann hits sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Weeks is pretty "meh" as a DFS option with his .231-2-7 line. Herrmann is a solid lower-middle streamer today against Jake Odorizzi.

Diamondbacks | Arizona resting two starters

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 10:26:23 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Jean Segura and C Welington Castillo are not in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta Sunday, June 5. 2B Phil Gosselin will start at second base and is batting second, while C Chris Herrmann will start at catcher and is batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Gosselin has only three hits in his last 13 games and probably should be avoided in most fantasy leagues. Herrmann performed well in May but has gone hitless in his last five games. Owners in daily fantasy leagues likely will be able to find better options to use in their lineups and can pass on Herrmann.

Diamondbacks | Welington Castillo out again

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 15:17:10 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo (rest) is not in the lineup for the second straight day Wednesday, June 1. C Chris Herrmann is starting in his place and batting sixth versus Houston Astros SP Mike Fiers.

Fantasy Tip: Herrmann has turned into a very versatile player this season, and it's his bat that continues to get him starts. In fact, the 28-year-old is coming off by far the best month of his major league career, as he produced an impressive .377/.443/.679 line in 18 games in May, registering three homers and 14 RBI in the process. He'll become an asset if he can keep it going through June.

Diamondbacks | Welington Castillo, Nick Ahmed out

Tue, 31 May 2016 09:39:08 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo and SS Nick Ahmed are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 31. C Chris Herrmann is behind the plate and is hitting sixth, while OF Chris Owings is starting at the 6 and is batting seventh. Also, OF Michael Bourn draws in at center field and is hitting second against Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers.

Fantasy Tip: Herrmann has been serviceable as a second catcher in deeper leagues with a .308 average and five home runs and 19 RBI. He's not a bad low-end play if you're looking to save money at catcher in daily setups. Bourn is the better daily buy for upside hitting out of the two-hole, as he has been very productive for the Snakes with a .355 average, six RBI and three stolen bases since being signed.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb, Welington Castillo sitting

Sun, 29 May 2016 11:54:49 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb and C Welington Castillo are not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres SP Drew Pomeranz Sunday, May 29. 2B Phil Gosselin will start at third base and is batting second, while C Chris Herrmann will start at catcher and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Gosselin has three hits in his last three games but has only four RBI on the season. Owners could consider using him in their lineups but should be able better options to use. Herrmann has seen more playing time this month and is hitting .413 with three home runs and 13 RBI during that span. He should be a solid starting option in most daily fantasy leagues.
