Orioles | Pedro Alvarez out against lefty

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 16:07:13 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 1B Pedro Alvarez is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners left-handed SP Wade LeBlanc Friday, July 1. OF Joey Rickard is starting in right field and is hitting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Rickard, a former Rule 5 draft pick, is an average major league hitter with mediocre power and limited speed. That won't play well outside of depth for AL-only leagues, and he's an unattractive DFS target, as well.

Orioles | Hyun-soo Kim, Pedro Alvarez out

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 12:45:14 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Hyun-soo Kim and 3B Pedro Alvarez are not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore Friday, June 24. OF Nolan Reimold will start in left field and is batting eighth. OF Mark Trumbo will serve as the designated hitter, while OF Joey Rickard will start in right field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Rickard has 10 hits in his last 10 games and is hitting .344 this month. He should be a sleeper option in daily fantasy leagues because he plays well against left-handed pitchers. Reimold has struggled at the plate over the last few weeks and can be avoided.

Orioles | Pedro Alvarez homers twice, drives in five

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 21:17:46 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 1B Pedro Alvarez went 3-for-5 with two home runs and five RBI against the San Diego Padres on Tuesday, June 21.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez entered June with a .194-3-11 line in 103 at-bats but has gotten hot of late, going 16-for-47 (.341) with six home runs and 13 RBI this month. He belongs in AL-only lineups as long as he's swinging a hot bat.

Orioles | Three O's regulars sitting out

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 13:05:08 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Hyun-soo Kim, 1B Pedro Alvarez and 3B Ryan Flaherty are not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 16. OF Nolan Reimold is in left field and is hitting eighth, OF Joey Rickard is in right field and batting second and SS Paul Janish is at the hot corner and is hitting ninth against Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez.

Fantasy Tip: Reimold and Janish are desperation dart throws in daily formats because of their low lineup spots. Rickard had a hot start to the season and was a waiver wire consideration in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues, but he's become more of a fourth outfielder of late and doesn't move the fantasy needle all that much because of his lack of power. Consider him a low-end deep sleeper in DFS tonight.

Orioles | Pedro Alvarez takes a seat

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 12:15:29 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 1B Pedro Alvarez is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 15. OF Joey Rickard draws into the lineup in right field and is batting eighth against Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright.

Fantasy Tip: Rickard has cooled off considerably since the season's first month and has essentially lost a starting outfield job to Hyun-soo Kim. He's hitting .278 this month but has only one homer and an RBI. Rickard has very little daily appeal with limited power at the bottom of the batting order.

Orioles | Baltimore resting two players

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 13:08:54 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Hyun-soo Kim and 3B Pedro Alvarez are not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP David Price Tuesday, June 14. OF Mark Trumbo will serve as the designated hitter, while OF Joey Rickard will start in right field and is batting second. OF Nolan Reimold will start in left field and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Rickard is hitting .291 against left-handed pitchers this season, while Reimold has a .250 batting average against lefties. Both should be decent sleeper options in daily fantasy leagues. Trumbo has been outstanding this season and should be a starter in all leagues.

Orioles | Baltimore sitting four starters

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 09:01:03 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Hyun-soo Kim, C Matt Wieters, 3B Pedro Alvarez and 2B Ryan Flaherty are not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ Saturday, June 11. OF Mark Trumbo will serve as the designated hitter, while OF Joey Rickard will start in right field and is batting second. OF Nolan Reimold will start in left field and is batting seventh. C Francisco Pena will start at catcher and is batting eighth, while SS Paul Janish will start at third base and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Rickard and Reimold have posted solid numbers against left-handed pitchers this season and can be decent options in daily fantasy leagues against Happ. Pena has gone 5-for-11 with one home run and two RBI since joining the Orioles and should also have some value in daily leagues. Janish has struggled at the plate this season and should be avoided.

Orioles | No Pedro Alvarez vs. Blue Jays

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 12:31:19 -0700

Baltimore Orioles DH Pedro Alvarez is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 10. OF Nolan Reimold draws into the lineup in right field and is batting eighth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marco Estrada Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez has been better of late with a .293/.326/.634 slash line, four home runs and eight RBI through his past 12 games (10 starts). He has tremendous power upside, but he is also streaky and typically drags down your batting average. If you're chasing home runs, though, Alvarez might be worth an add. Reimold is 16-for-50 with a .955 OPS against right-handed hurlers this season and could be a potential flier for daily contests Friday. He remains nothing more than a cavernous mixed and AL-only option in seasonal setups.

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 09:53:58 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Hyun-soo Kim, C Matt Wieters, 3B Pedro Alvarez and 2B Ryan Flaherty are not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia Sunday, June 5.

C Francisco Pena will start at catcher and is batting eighth, while SS Paul Janish will start at third base and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Rickard and Reimold have received solid playing time against left-handed pitchers this season and have posted solid numbers. Both players can be sleeper options in daily fantasy leagues. Pena and Janish are not strong fantasy players and should be avoided.
