Rangers | Pedro Ciriaco continues to rake

Wed, 23 Mar 2016 23:46:13 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Pedro Ciriaco had a pair of hits in the Cactus League spring game Wednesday, March 23, against the Chicago Cubs, raising his spring average to .500.

Fantasy Tip: Ciriaco has hit safely in 11 of his 12 games this spring. He is in the mix for a utility spot, and is worth adding in deeper AL-only fantasy leagues for help at middle infielder.

Rangers | Pedro Ciriaco can play all over

Tue, 23 Feb 2016 19:28:57 -0800

Texas Rangers INF Pedro Ciriaco can play multiple infield positions, and 10 of his 272 Major League games have come in the outfield.

Fantasy Tip: Ciriaco could win a roster spot with a strong spring, but he would only be worth a look in deeper AL-only fantasy formats for his positional versatility from an eligibility perspective.

Braves | Jace Peterson sitting Saturday

Sat, 05 Sep 2015 13:30:22 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson is not in the starting lineup Saturday, Sept. 5, against the Washington Nationals. 2B Pedro Ciriaco is batting second against Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is largely out thanks to his .202 average against left-handed pitching. Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has only batted twice against Gonzalez but has a .500 average, so he could be a sneaky low-cost source of points.

Braves | Andrelton Simmons out of lineup

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 11:01:52 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons is not in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel Sunday, Aug. 23. INF Pedro Ciriaco will play shortstop and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is batting .316 this month with a home run and five RBIs. However, his limited offensive potential means he should be ignored in FantasyScore unless you need the cap relief.

Braves | Adonis Garcia out Friday

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 10:54:01 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Adonis Garcia is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 21. SS Pedro Ciriaco is starting at the hot corner and hitting sixth against Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks.

Fantasy Tip: Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) hasn't been bad in limited playing time this month (.286-1-5), but he remains limited offensively and should only be a deep FantasyScore sleeper used to give you salary cap relief if you're desperate.

Braves | No Andrelton Simmons Wednesday

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 12:22:01 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 12. SS Pedro Ciriaco is starting at shortstop and hitting ninth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi.

Fantasy Tip: You shouldn't be considering Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) on FantasyScore. The infielder has 24 hits in 95 at-bats (.253) with no home runs and 11 RBI this year.

Braves | Jace Peterson out vs. lefty

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 13:35:58 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 24. SS Pedro Ciriaco is starting at second base and batting second with OF Cameron Maybin moving up to the leadoff spot against St. Louis Cardinals SP Tim Cooney.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is slumping in July with a .169/.239/.231 slash line over 73 plate appearances, and he should be avoided in the majority of fantasy formats until he turns it around at the dish. Maybin's ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) fantasy value isn't overly impacted, and he remains a mid-tier outfield option. Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) checks out as a cheap flier for FantasyScore contests Friday.

Braves | Pedro Ciriaco playing third base

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 12:16:45 -0700

Atlanta Braves INF Pedro Ciriaco will bat sixth and play third base against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta Sunday, July 19. INF Juan Uribe is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is 5-for-24 with one double during the month of July and is hitless in one career at-bat versus Arrieta. He should be ignored for FantasyScore purposes.

Braves | Jace Peterson out of lineup

Sat, 11 Jul 2015 10:40:38 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa Saturday, July 11. INF Pedro Ciriaco will play second base and bat second.

Fantasy Tip: Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is batting .296 with 10 RBIs this season but has fared better against righties and is hitless in one career at-bat versus De La Rosa. Use him in FantasyScore only if you're in desperate need of cap relief.

Braves | Andrelton Simmons sitting

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 15:08:28 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, July 7, against the Milwaukee Brewers. SS Pedro Ciriaco will start in the field and hit seventh in the order against RHP Tyler Cravy.

Fantasy Tip: Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting .333 against right-handed pitchers through 47 plate appearances. While Ciriaco lacks power and upside, FantasyScore owners can be content with a hit and possibly a run scored at the minimum price.
