Orioles | Pedro Alvarez sitting vs. Rockies

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 12:32:20 -0700

Baltimore Orioles DH Pedro Alvarez is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 27. OF Nolan Reimold is starting in right field and batting ninth against Colorado Rockies SP Jon Gray Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez is not seeing enough playing time to be anything more than a depth option in deep mixed leagues. Though, he's been better since the calendar flipped to June with nine home runs, 20 RBI and a .863 OPS over 111 plate appearances. Reimold is nothing more than a low-end option in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues.

Orioles | Pedro Alvarez out vs. lefty

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 13:27:57 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 1B Pedro Alvarez is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies left-handed SP Jorge De La Rosa Monday, July 25. OF Dariel Alvarez draws into the lineup in right field and is hitting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez probably won't see enough playing time to be viable outside of deep AL-only leagues, and he has just seven hits in 29 career at-bats the last two years. He's a desperation source of salary cap relief in DFS this evening.

Indians | Cody Allen tagged with fourth loss

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 14:48:54 -0700

Cleveland Indians RP Cody Allen was charged with two unearned runs in the ninth inning and took the loss against the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday, July 24. Pedro Alvarez reached base on a throwing error following a strikeout to lead off the inning and pinch hitter Nolan Reimold belted a tiebreaking, two-out home run to left-center to end it.

Fantasy Tip: Even though it was a non-save situation, the timing of this is a bit ironic since Cleveland reportedly became the favorite to land Aroldis Chapman this weekend. Such a move would obviously strengthen the Indians' bullpen, but it would also remove Allen from the closer's role and make him nearly worthless in most fantasy leagues that do not score holds. Owners should to start preparing for that possibility as soon as possible.

Orioles | Pedro Alvarez takes a seat

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 08:37:51 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 1B Pedro Alvarez is out of the lineup Thursday, July 2, with OF Ryan Flaherty hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Flaherty is a left-handed hitter with some success against left-handers and against CC Sabathia in a very limited sample size. He doesn't offer much upside, but he's a basement filler you could use to load up elsewhere in DFS.

Orioles | Matt Wieters, Nolan Reimold resting

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 08:32:12 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters and OF Nolan Reimold are not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi Sunday, July 17. INF Pedro Alvarez will bat sixth and serve as the designated hitter, while C Caleb Joseph will bat ninth and start behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez is 8-for-16 with three doubles and a home run this month and is 2-for-5 in his career versus Odorizzi, making him a decent option for DFS. Joseph is batting just .160 this season and is 1-for-10 against the right-hander, so he should be avoided in all formats.

Orioles | Pedro Alvarez resting Saturday

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 11:38:56 -0700

Baltimore Orioles DH Pedro Alvarez is not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore Saturday, July 16. OF Mark Trumbo will bat cleanup and serve as the designated hitter, with OF Nolan Reimold hitting eighth and playing left field and OF Joey Rickard hitting ninth and playing right field.

Fantasy Tip: Trumbo is batting .359 with five home runs and eight RBI in 39 at-bats this month and is a must-start option in all fantasy formats. Reimold is 4-for-13 with two doubles and two RBI in his career against Moore, while Rickard is batting .294 during the month of July. Both outfielders are worth considering as value plays in daily fantasy contests today.

Orioles | Matt Wieters, Pedro Alvarez out Saturday

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 11:49:37 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters and DH Pedro Alvarez are not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Nick Tropeano Saturday, July 9. OF Joey Rickard will bat eighth and play right field, with C Caleb Joseph starting behind the plate and batting ninth. OF Mark Trumbo will serve as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Rickard is 4-for-9 with a double and two RBI at the plate this month and is worth considering as a productive source of cap relief in DFS Saturday. On the other hand, Joseph is hitting just .164 with zero RBI through 73 at-bats and is not a recommended fantasy option.

Orioles | Pedro Alvarez reinstated

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 14:31:00 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 1B Pedro Alvarez was reinstated from the bereavement list Thursday, July 7.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez hasn't been anything special for the O's, with a .242 average, nine home runs and 26 RBI in 165 at-bats, mainly against right-handed pitching. Since he doesn't play regularly, he's more of a commodity in single-universe leagues for his power.

Orioles | Pedro Alvarez to go on bereavement list

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 14:26:21 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 3B Pedro Alvarez will be placed on the bereavement list after the team's game Sunday, July 3, and is expected to miss the entire series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez probably will only be away from the team for a few days, but owners in mixed leagues probably should take him out of their lineups this week. The Orioles will be playing in a National League stadium while Alvarez is away, so the team will not need to replace him in the lineup.

Orioles | Pedro Alvarez out of the lineup

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 15:07:26 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 1B Pedro Alvarez is out of the lineup Saturday, July 2, with OF Joey Rickard hitting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez is out against a lefty and has only made one start this week because of interleague play and left-handers. Rickard hit .306 last month and is a low-end consideration against James Paxton.
