From -- thru  --


Orioles | Several BAL regulars return to action

Sat, 28 May 2016 10:57:06 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters, 3B Pedro Alvarez and OF Joey Rickard are back in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar Saturday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: Wieters is batting .389 (7-for-18) with two doubles, a home run and three RBI over the past week and makes a solid catching option in all fantasy formats. Alvarez and Rickard have combined to go 4-for-32 at the plate over the same time period, so they should be avoided for now.

Orioles | Pedro Alvarez sitting out

Sun, 22 May 2016 11:47:56 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 3B Pedro Alvarez is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angeles of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver Sunday, May 22. 2B Ryan Flaherty will start at third base and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Flaherty has gone 8-for-36 this month but does not have any RBI during that span. Owners should be able to find better options for their lineups in daily fantasy leagues.

Orioles | Nolan Reimold takes a seat

Sat, 21 May 2016 15:58:19 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Nolan Reimold is out of the lineup Saturday, May 21, with 1B Pedro Alvarez hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez is hitting .167 this month and has just two homers and nine RBI on the season. He's not a real good option in DFS against Matt Shoemaker.

Orioles | Pedro Alvarez sitting vs. southpaw

Fri, 20 May 2016 15:18:09 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 1B Pedro Alvarez is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim left-handed SP Hector Santiago Friday, May 20. SS Paul Janish is starting at the hot corner and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Expect to see Alvarez rested most days when the O's face a left-handed hurler. Janish has a career .215 average with seven home runs in eight big league seasons, so there's no incentive for you to click on him in daily formats this evening.

Orioles | Pedro Alvarez out vs. lefty

Tue, 17 May 2016 11:59:03 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 1B Pedro Alvarez is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners left-handed SP Wade Miley Tuesday, May 17. OF Nolan Reimold is starting in left field and is batting eighth. OF Joey Rickard shifts from left field to right field.

Fantasy Tip: It's a common occurrence for Alvarez to sit against lefties. Reimold has played well this year (.340/.389/.580 with three home runs). He has a home run and is hitting .308 (8-for-26) against lefties this year, too, so he's not a bad low-priced flyer in DFS action. Hitting eighth will cap his ceiling tonight, though.

Orioles | Hyun-soo Kim playing left field

Sat, 14 May 2016 12:20:43 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Hyun-soo Kim is batting ninth and playing left field against Detroit Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez Saturday, May 14. In addition, OF Joey Rickard is batting leadoff and playing right field, OF Mark Trumbo is batting fifth and serving as the designated hitter and 3B Pedro Alvarez is batting seventh and playing the hot corner. 3B Ryan Flaherty is not in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Kim is 11-for-23 (.478) with two RBI this season, although just one of those hits has gone for extra bases. That being said, he makes an excellent source of cap relief in daily fantasy contests.

Orioles | Pedro Alvarez out of lineup

Wed, 11 May 2016 09:13:29 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 1B Pedro Alvarez is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 11. OF Nolan Reimold draws the start in right field and is hitting sixth against Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes. OF Mark Trumbo is serving as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Reimold is getting it done this year, hitting .333 (14-for-42) with three home runs and six RBI and is a decent sleeper selection in daily games. He also has three hits (one home run) in 10 career at-bats against Hughes.

Orioles | Two Orioles sitting second game

Sat, 07 May 2016 14:32:37 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters and OF Joey Rickard are out of the lineup for the second game of a doubleheader Saturday, May 7. OF Hyun-soo Kim is hitting second, DH Pedro Alvarez hits sixth and C Caleb Joseph hits ninth.

Fantasy Tip: It's the highest Kim has hit this season, and for good reason, as he's hitting .526 in 19 at-bats. He's a solid low-end option against Jesse Hahn. Alvarez, who has yet to get it going, and Joseph aren't great starts.

Orioles | Pedro Alvarez, Ryan Flaherty out

Sat, 07 May 2016 09:04:25 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 1B Pedro Alvarez and 2B Ryan Flaherty are not in the starting lineup for the first game of a doubleheader against the Oakland Athletics Saturday, May 7. OF Mark Trumbo will serve as the designated hitter. OF Nolan Reimold will start in left field and is batting seventh, while SS Paul Janish will start at shortstop and is batting ninth against Athletics SP Rich Hill.

Fantasy Tip: Reimold and Janish are in the starting lineup because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Reimold is hitting .333 with one home run and three RBI against lefties this season and could be a sleeper option in daily fantasy leagues. Janish was recently recalled from the minor leagues and can be avoided.

Orioles | Pedro Alvarez sitting vs. Oakland

Fri, 06 May 2016 12:38:56 -0700

Baltimore Orioles DH Pedro Alvarez is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 6. OF Nolan Reimold is starting in left field and batting sixth against Oakland Athletics SP Rich Hill Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Reimold is 8-for-24 with a .542 slugging percentage against left-handed hurlers this season, but Hill has performed well of late and limited opponents to a .219/.314/.295 slash line over his past five outings. View Reimold as a risky option in all fantasy formats Friday. Alvarez is quickly losing all his fantasy luster and sits with a .196 batting average and a single home run for the campaign.
