Twins | Eduardo Nunez slugs 10th homer

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 13:57:02 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Eduardo Nunez finished 2-for-5 with a solo homer against his former team - the New York Yankees - on Sunday, June 26.

Fantasy Tip: Nunez is enjoying a dream season thus far for the last-place Twins, batting .312 with 10 home runs, 29 RBI and 17 steals. He doubled his previous career high in homers with today's blast, is one RBI short of tying his personal best in RBI and five stolen bases shy of matching his career best in that category as well. Nunez, Jose Altuve and Melvin Upton Jr. are the only three players with as many as 10 homers and 15 steals already. In case you hadn't already guessed, he's a must-start.

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 07:38:52 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe (groin) is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda Saturday, June 25. SS Eduardo Nunez will start at third base, while SS Eduardo Escobar will start at shortstop and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar is currently on a seven-game hitting streak and has nine RBI during that span. He should be an attractive starting option in daily fantasy leagues because of his recent success at the plate.

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 09:32:23 -0700

SS Eduardo Escobar will start at shortstop and is batting sixth.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe on the bench

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 08:40:54 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda Saturday, June 18. SS Eduardo Nunez will start at third base, while SS Eduardo Escobar will start at shortstop and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Nunez has slowed down a bit this month but still has at least one hit in eight of his last nine games. He is a decent starting candidate in most leagues. Escobar is hitting .385 with one home run and two RBI over the last seven days and should have value in daily fantasy leagues.

Twins | Byung Ho Park resting vs. Yanks

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 14:20:32 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Byung Ho Park is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 17. SS Eduardo Escobar draws into the lineup at the 6 and is batting sixth against New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka. SS Eduardo Nunez remains in the leadoff spot and is serving as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar is hitting .252 with no home runs and 10 RBI on the year. In limited playing time he has yet to find a groove at the plate and is not an intriguing daily selection. Nunez has been one of the Twins' most consistent hitters on the year. He's cooled off a bit of late but contributes across the board and remains a fantasy option in the majority of seasonal leagues, especially for his multiposition eligibility.

Twins | Joe Mauer out vs. lefty

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 14:27:55 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Joe Mauer is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees left-handed SP CC Sabathia Thursday, June 16. As a result, SS Eduardo Escobar draws into the lineup at shortstop and is hitting sixth. SS Eduardo Nunez moves to third base and 3B Trevor Plouffe is serving as the designated hitter. Also, 2B Brian Dozier is hitting third in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Mauer is in the midst of a resurgent season thanks mainly to increased plate patience. He's squaring up more balls at the plate and has become an asset in most seasonal leagues with a .285/.386/.417 slash line and seven homers and 26 RBI. Escobar has lost considerable playing time to Nunez this year and has very little fantasy value remaining. Dozier has had a down year but is more of a contrarian play this evening in the three-hole in daily setups.

Twins | Byung Ho Park not in the lineup

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 09:10:53 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Byung Ho Park is not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello Sunday, June 12. 3B Trevor Plouffe will serve as the designated hitter. SS Eduardo Nunez will start at third base, while SS Eduardo Escobar will start at shortstop and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Plouffe and Nunez have posted solid numbers this season and should be starting options in many leagues. Escobar has recorded four hits in his last eight games but is not a great fantasy option for owners.
