Cubs | Anthony Rizzo not starting

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 10:58:13 -0700

Chicago Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo is not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Mat Latos Sunday, July 5. OF Mike Baxter will start in first base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Rizzo ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Baxter ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting .265 in limited time this season, but owners on FantasyScore may want to look for better options to use.

Cubs | Mike Baxter out of lineup Sunday

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 14:20:28 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Mike Baxter is not in the starting lineup Sunday, June 28, against the St. Louis Cardinals. OF Chris Denorfia is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: The presence of Carlos Martinez may be keeping Baxter ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) out of the starting lineup. Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is 3-for-3 against Martinez lifetime, with two RBIs. Start Denorfia if you need an outfielder.

Cubs | Junior Lake out Wednesday

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 11:52:37 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Junior Lake is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 10. OF Chris Denorfia is starting in right field and hitting eighth against Detroit Tigers SP Shane Greene. OF Mike Baxter is serving as the designated hitter and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Denorfia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) isn't a bad deep sleeper play when he's in the lineup, and he's hitting .433 (13-for-30) in limited at-bats due to injuries this year. However, a spot at the bottom of the order probably means you should avoid him. Baxter ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) can also be avoided today.

Dodgers | Matt Kemp activated, but not in lineup

Fri, 04 Apr 2014 10:21:38 -0700

The Los Angeles Dodgers activated OF Matt Kemp (ankle) from the 15-day disabled list Friday, April 4, but he is not in the starting lineup against the San Francisco Giants. OF Mike Baxter was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: This move was expected. It's not a shock that Kemp isn't in the lineup, though, as the team will likely give him plenty of days off to keep from overworking him initially. When he's back in the lineup, he should be in your starting lineup.

Dodgers | Carl Crawford not traveling to Australia

Sun, 16 Mar 2014 11:37:55 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said OF Carl Crawford will not travel to Australia for the team's series against the Arizona Diamondbacks next weekend so that he can attend the birth of his third child.

Fantasy Tip: With Matt Kemp (ankle) and Crawford unavailable for the two-game series in Australia, OF Scott Van Slyke will likely get the starting nod for both games in left field. OF Mike Baxter and either OF Nick Buss or OF Joc Pederson are also expected to be on the roster, but these players carry very little fantasy value.
