Diamondbacks | Nick Ahmed out of the game

Tue, 24 May 2016 19:12:17 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed (head) left the game early Tuesday, May 24, after he was hit in the face by a pitch. OF Chris Owings moved to shortstop, while C Chris Herrmann entered the game to play center field.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Ahmed will miss any time. Ahmed and Phil Gosselin are options to start at shortstop and would be sleeper option in daily fantasy leagues.

Diamondbacks | Yasmany Tomas resting Saturday

Sat, 21 May 2016 10:25:40 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Yasmany Tomas is out of the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Mike Leake Saturday, May 21. 2B/OF Rickie Weeks will start in left field and bat fifth. In addition, C Welington Castillo is starting behind the plate and batting sixth, INF/OF Chris Owings will bat seventh and play left field and INF Nick Ahmed will bat eighth and play shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Weeks, Castillo and Owings are productive sources of cap relief for daily fantasy contests but Ahmed should be avoided due to his .188 average in 138 at-bats this year, including a .176 mark versus right-handed pitching.

Diamondbacks | Michael Bourn starting Friday

Fri, 20 May 2016 14:37:18 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Michael Bourn is starting in center field and is hitting second against St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez Friday, May 20. SS/OF Chris Owings moves to shortstop and is batting eighth with SS Nick Ahmed taking the night off.

Fantasy Tip: Bourn has always been known as a speedster, and he had 61 steals all the way back in 2011. But as he ages, he's struggled to reach base frequently and had only 17 stolen bases in 141 games with multiple teams last year. The lineup spot is nice tonight, but Bourn remains strictly a low-end outfield option in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues just for his wheels. He won't play every day, either.

Diamondbacks | Chris Owings, Welington Castillo sitting

Mon, 16 May 2016 14:23:27 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Chris Owings and C Welington Castillo are not in the starting lineup Monday, May 16. OF Michael Bourn draws a start in center field and is hitting second, while C Chris Herrmann is behind the plate and batting seventh against New York Yankees SP Chad Green.

Fantasy Tip: The 33-year-old Bourn could see decent playing time while David Peralta is on the disabled list. Bourn is worth a low-priced flier in NL-only leagues for his speed. However, keep in mind that he stole just 17 bases in 24 attempts in 482 plate appearances in 2015. Keep expectations in check. Herrmann can hit the occasional home run but remains a low-end catching option in DFS action.

Diamondbacks | Nick Ahmed not in the lineup

Sun, 15 May 2016 12:51:46 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed is not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain Sunday, May 15. OF Chris Owings will start at shortstop, while C Chris Herrmann will start in center field and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Herrmann is hitting .333 with two home runs and seven RBI over the last seven days and could be a decent starting option in daily fantasy leagues.

Diamondbacks | Welington Castillo, Chris Owings sitting

Wed, 04 May 2016 12:33:23 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo and SS/OF Chris Owings are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 4. 3B Brandon Drury is starting in right field and batting fifth, while C Chris Herrmann is catching and hitting seventh against Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez. OF David Peralta moves over to center field.

Fantasy Tip: The matchup is tough for the D-backs, but with Drury so hot (18-for-46, four home runs in last 11 games), it might be worth keeping him in your starting lineups in traditional leagues. Herrmann has six hits in 33 at-bats (.182) and should be avoided everywhere.

Diamondbacks | Chris Owings not starting

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 14:06:21 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks INF/OF Chris Owings is not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright Wednesday, April 27. OF David Peralta will start in center field, while OF Brandon Drury will start in right field and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Drury has been on a hot streak recently with 12 hits and four RBI over his last eight games. He could be a starting candidate in some daily fantasy leagues even though he is facing one of the better pitchers in the National League.

Diamondbacks | Quintet of Arizona hitters catch a break

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 12:02:26 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt, OF David Peralta, 2B Jean Segura, OF Socrates Brito and C Welington Castillo are not in the lineup on Sunday, April 17, against San Diego Padres SP Robbie Erlin. 2B/OF Rickie Weeks will start in left and bat second, INF Phil Gosselin will play first base and hit third, INF/OF Brandon Drury will move to second base and bat fifth, OF Chris Owings will man center and bat seventh while C Chris Herrmann will set up behind the plate and hit eighth.

Fantasy Tip: For some perspective on how much offensive firepower Arizona is resting on Sunday, Yasmany Tomas moves up from eighth in Saturday's lineup to fourth in today's order. In the wake of last night's 14-inning marathon, the most recommended plays could the pitchers (Erlin and Patrick Corbin), each of whom will face a lineup missing about a good chunk of its regular hitters.

Diamondbacks | Pack of Arizona hitters take a seat

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 12:27:44 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Jean Segura, C Welington Castillo, LF Yasmany Tomas and SS Nick Ahmed are out of the lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta on Sunday, April 10. OF Socrates Brito is batting leadoff in place of Segura while 2B Phil Gosselin is at the keystone and hitting second. 3B/OF Brandon Drury is in left and batting fifth while INF/OF Chris Owings is replacing Segura in the field and hitting seventh. C Chris Hermann is behind the plate and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Arrieta was already a strong play Sunday and facing a number of Arizona bench players probably isn't going to hurt his cause. Conversely, it's hard to recommend starting any Diamondbacks outside of Paul Goldschmidt and maybe David Peralta in year-long or DFS formats in this contest.

Sat, 09 Apr 2016 15:33:02 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb and OF Socrates Brito are out of the lineup Saturday, April 9, with OF Chris Owings hitting second and 3B Brandon Drury hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Drury nor Owings are attractive DFS options today against Kyle Hendricks.
