Orioles | Manny Machado handles SS well

Tue, 03 May 2016 21:55:42 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 3B Manny Machado started at shortstop Tuesday, May 3, against the New York Yankees with SS J.J. Hardy (foot) on the 15-day disabled list. Machado handled all his chances without incident while 2B Ryan Flaherty slid over to third and was effective. He has a .450/.522/.750 slash line over his past five outings, posting four multi-hit games.

Fantasy Tip: Machado went 1-for-3 with a walk, hitting safely for the fifth straight game after a four-game hitless skid from April 24-27. Machado remains a must-start fantasy option, and his ability to bounce back is why you never bench him despite a cool streak.

Orioles | Manny Machado playing shortstop Tuesday

Tue, 03 May 2016 11:58:39 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 3B Manny Machado moves over to shortstop to face New York Yankees SP Luis Severino Tuesday, May 3. 2B Ryan Flaherty is starting at third base and is batting ninth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: With J.J. Hardy (fractured foot) on the DL, expect this setup to be the norm for a while. Flaherty is only a depth option in AL-only leagues. The biggest thing to note is that Machado should now gain shortstop eligibility this year and for the 2017 season. He's already one of the top third baseman in the league, and this could vault him to a top-three fantasy pick next year.

Orioles | J.J. Hardy out 6-8 weeks

Mon, 02 May 2016 11:28:42 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SS J.J. Hardy (foot) was diagnosed with a hairline fracture on his left foot, and he's expected to miss six to eight weeks. Hardy will land on the disabled list. He was hitting .244/.291/.410 with seven doubles, two home runs and eight RBI in 22 games. 2B Ryan Flaherty is expected to be called up from Class AAA Norfolk to replace Hardy on roster. 3B Manny Machado can slide over to shortstop, with Flaherty seeing the bulk of starts at third base.

Fantasy Tip: You can find healthy and possibly more productive shortstop options to replace Hardy in most mixed leagues. Chris Davis and Pedro Alvarez could also slide to third base, but moving Machado over likely makes the most sense. That'll likely give Machado shortstop eligibility this year and next, which could vault him to a top-three pick in 2017 drafts. Flaherty could be useful for depth in AL-only leagues if he sees enough playing time.

Orioles | Matt Wieters, J.J. Hardy out

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 11:01:33 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters and SS J.J. Hardy are not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura Sunday, April 24. 3B Manny Machado will start at shortstop, while 2B Ryan Flaherty will start at third base and is batting ninth. C Caleb Joseph will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Joseph is hitting .250 over his last seven days and could be a cheaper option for owners in two-catcher leagues. Flaherty is hitting only .143 this season and probably should be avoided by owners.

Orioles | Still no Adam Jones in lineup

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 13:23:56 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Adam Jones (rib cage) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, April 12. OF Joey Rickard is starting in center field again and hitting leadoff, while 2B Ryan Flaherty is starting in left field and batting ninth against Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz.

Fantasy Tip: Jones hasn't started since last Wednesday but could return as soon as tomorrow. There remains a chance he'll land on the DL, so prepare for that possibility. Rickard has been a nice surprise all spring and to start the year, hitting .409 (9-for-22 with a homer) and continues to be a cheap value play in daily formats. You can ignore Flaherty everywhere.

Orioles | J.J. Hardy sitting vs. Tampa Bay

Fri, 08 Apr 2016 13:15:07 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SS J.J. Hardy is not in the starting lineup against the Tampa Bay Rays Friday, April 8. 3B Manny Machado is batting third and starting at shortstop, and 2B Ryan Flaherty is starting at third base and batting ninth against Tampa Bay SP Chris Archer Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Machado played seven games at shortstop in 2015, which gave him eligibility there in some leagues, but 2016 owners will be happy to see him start at the 6, especially where he only needs five games at shortstop to gain eligibility this season. Hardy is a fringe option in deep mixed leagues, whereas Flaherty doesn't project to receive enough at-bats to be anything more than a depth option in AL-only formats.

Orioles | Jonathan Schoop to miss final game

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 10:25:17 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 2B Jonathan Schoop (hand, knee) is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda Sunday, Oct. 4. 2B Ryan Flaherty will start at second base and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Schoop ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) will have the offseason to recover from his injuries. Flaherty ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is not a great fantasy option, and owners should be able to find better options.

Orioles | Jonathan Schoop not starting Game 1

Sat, 03 Oct 2015 07:24:56 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 2B Jonathan Schoop is not in the starting lineup for the first game of a doubleheader against the New York Yankees Saturday, Oct. 3. 2B Ryan Flaherty will start at second base against SP Ivan Nova and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Schoop ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) likely will be in the lineup for the second game, but owners will need to check the lineup. Flaherty ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has only three hits in his last seven games and is not a great option on FantasyScore.

Orioles | J.J. Hardy resting for Game 1

Wed, 30 Sep 2015 10:23:33 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SS J.J. Hardy is not in the starting lineup for Game 1 of a doubleheader against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman. 3B Manny Machado is moving over to shortstop and 2B Ryan Flaherty is starting at the hot corner and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Flaherty ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is a light-hitting utility infielder that should be ignored on FantasyScore.

Orioles | Back still bothering Adam Jones

Wed, 23 Sep 2015 12:46:42 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Adam Jones (back) remains out of the lineup Wednesday, Sept. 23. 2B Ryan Flaherty draws into the lineup in right field and is batting seventh against Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer.

Fantasy Tip: Flaherty ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is definitely one to avoid in all fantasy formats tonight against the Nationals ace. Flaherty has a weak slash line of .215/.294/.373 with eight home runs and 28 RBI in 233 at-bats in 2015.
