From -- thru  --


Twins | Oswaldo Arcia, Kurt Suzuki playing

Sun, 01 May 2016 07:52:55 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Oswaldo Arcia and C Kurt Suzuki are back in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Mike Pelfrey Sunday, May 1. 3B/OF Miguel Sano will play third base and INF Eduardo Nunez is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki is batting .346 with two doubles and three RBI over the past two weeks, so he should be viewed as an inexpensive flier option for daily fantasy leagues. Arcia has batted just .200 over the same stretch and is hitting just .227 versus righties this season, making him a risky play in all formats.

Twins | Eduardo Nunez out Tuesday

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 14:09:59 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Eduardo Nunez is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 26, against the Cleveland Indians. OF Miguel Sano is playing third base and batting fourth against Indians SP Cody Anderson.

Fantasy Tip: Nunez is a player with borderline fantasy value, even though he has hit leadoff. Sano carries plenty of value in the fourth spot (.323-3-6 in the last week) so put him in your lineup and reap the benefits.

Twins | Eduardo Nunez bangs out four hits

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 17:31:07 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Eduardo Nunez went 3-for-4 with two runs scored and an RBI in a 6-5 loss to the Washington Nationals Sunday, April 24.

Fantasy Tip: Nunez continues to destroy right-handed pitching, and while he will likely lose playing time when Trevor Plouffe returns, he makes a decent short-term option in AL-only and deeper mixed leagues.

Twins | Eduardo Nunez, Byron Buxton playing

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 08:36:26 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Eduardo Nunez and OF Byron Buxton are back in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg Sunday, April 24, batting first and eight, respectively. 3B/OF Miguel Sano will move back to right field after playing the hot corner Saturday and OF Oswaldo Arcia will get the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Nunez is batting .405 with seven RBI through his first 37 at-bats this year, including a .455 mark versus right-handed pitching, making him a solid value play in daily fantasy games. On the other hand, Buxton is just 6-for-40 at the plate and should be avoided today.

Fantasy Tip: Arcia is batting .400 with two home runs and five RBI over the last seven days and should be an attractive starting candidate in daily fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Rosario has homered in consecutive games and is the only one of the trio worth a low-end start against Taylor Jungmann.

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 14:28:42 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Nunez has picked up six hits and one RBI in his last three games and could be an attractive option in daily fantasy leagues. Arcia has five hits, one home run and three RBI in the last two games and could also be used in daily leagues.

Twins | Minnesota sitting two starters

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 09:14:57 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Eduardo Escobar and C Kurt Suzuki are not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver Saturday, April 16. SS Eduardo Nunez will start at shortstop and is batting first, while C J.R. Murphy will start at catcher and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Nunez has gone 7-for-9 with two RBI so far this season and could be a sleeper option for owners to use in daily fantasy leagues. Murphy has struggled at the plate so far and probably should be avoided in all leagues.

Twins | Brian Dozier, Byron Buxton out

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 13:57:28 -0700

Minnesota Twins 2B Brian Dozier and OF Byron Buxton (hand) are not in the starting lineup Friday, April 15. SS Eduardo Nunez is at the keystone and leading off, while OF Oswaldo Arcia is starting in left field and hitting fifth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards. Also, OF Eddie Rosario moves from left field to center field, and he's hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Buxton's hand is bruised, so he could return at any point this weekend. He's off to a bad start, though, so you may want to bench him where you own him until he gets things going. Nunez and Arcia are in favorable lineup spots, but until the Twins get going offensively, nobody in their lineup is really attractive in daily games.
