Pirates | Andrew McCutchen not in lineup Saturday

Sat, 21 May 2016 10:23:18 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Andrew McCutchen is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Chatwood Saturday, May 21. OF Starling Marte will bat second and play center field, with OF Gregory Polanco playing left field and batting third, while OF Matt Joyce starts in right field and bats sixth. In addition, INF Jung Ho Kang is batting cleanup and playing third base in his return to the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Remove McCutchen from all fantasy lineups this afternoon. Joyce is batting .353 with five home runs and 15 RBI in just 51 at-bats and should be viewed as an inexpensive source of offensive firepower for daily fantasy contests.

Pirates | Starling Marte activated

Thu, 19 May 2016 11:49:20 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte was activated from the paternity list Thursday, May 19, and 2B/OF Alen Hanson was optioned to Class AAA Indianapolis.

Pirates | Starling Marte returning Thursday

Wed, 18 May 2016 14:41:37 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte will return from the paternity list for the game against the Atlanta Braves Thursday, May 18.

Fantasy Tip: Marte might never develop into a huge contributor in the home run column, but he more than tips the scales in each category. He has 21 runs, three home runs, 14 RBI and 12 stolen bases with a .326/.374/.479 slash line. Return him to your starting lineups in all fantasy formats and continue to view Marte as high-end outfielder, especially since his 12 steals are tied for the most in the National League.

Pirates | Starling Marte on paternity leave

Mon, 16 May 2016 10:51:18 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte was placed on the paternity list Monday, May 16. SS Alen Hanson was called up from the minors in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Marte is expected to miss a few games to start the week as a result. Act accordingly in traditional leagues. Matt Joyce might benefit the most with several starts in the outfield this week. He could be a great value play in daily setups, considering he's swinging exceptionally well (.333/.480/.692) in limited at-bats with Pittsburgh this year.

Pirates | Starling Marte absence coming

Mon, 16 May 2016 06:34:23 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte is expected to be sidelined on paternity leave Monday, May 16, and the Pirates are calling up SS/OF Alen Hanson when the move occurs.

Fantasy Tip: Hanson stole 35 bags at Triple-A last season and has seven in the early goings of 2016. He's expected to be a short-term callup, but he's worth the roll of the dice if you can find a spot in NL-only leagues. Marte could be out two or three days. He's certainly worth consideration to remain in your lineups for the back end of the week.

Fantasy Tip: Marte also has rolled up at least two hits in five of his past seven games against the Cincinnati Reds. Needless to say, especially against the Red Legs, he is a must-have fantasy option and DFS play. He is 10-for-30 (.333) with two RBIs and an .844 OPS against Wednesday's starter, Alfredo Simon.

Fantasy Tip: Joyce and Rodriguez have been very productive as role players for the Bucs to start the year, but their daily fantasy stock is down tonight while facing the almighty Arrieta.

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 15:01:43 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Andrew McCutchen is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis Monday, April 25. OF Starling Marte will start in center field, while OF Matt Joyce will start in left field and is batting second in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Joyce has been used mostly as a pinch hitter this season but does have a .300 average over the first few weeks of the season. Joyce could be a desperation option in some daily fantasy leagues, but owners should be able to find better options in most leagues.
