Pirates | Starling Marte back in the lineup

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 12:08:08 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte (illness) is starting in left field and batting fourth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Zach Eflin Friday, July 22. Marte was a late scratch because of flu-like symptoms Thursday, July 21.

Fantasy Tip: Marte is a top-tier outfielder who provides five-category production. Confidently return him to your lineups. He's a potential buy-low candidate, too. Some owners could be underwhelmed with his lack of home runs (seven), but his 33 stolen bases might be even more valuable given the scarcity of steals this season.

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 15:52:11 -0700

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte (illness) was scratched for the game against the Milwaukee Brewers Thursday, July 21, because of flu-like symptoms.

Fantasy Tip: There's a decent chance Marte is right back in the starting lineup Friday, July 22, but you'll want to check back for an update on his status before locking him into your lineups. Expect Matt Joyce or Sean Rodriguez to fill in for Marte Thursday, and Joyce in particular could be a nice flier in daily contests.

Pirates | PIT reshuffles lineup Saturday

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 14:11:08 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B/3B David Freese is not in the lineup against Washington Nationals RH Tanner Roark on Saturday, July 16. 1B John Jaso is playing first and batting leadoff, OF Starling Marte moves from the cleanup spot in the team's previous game to second and occupy left field. 3B Jung Ho Kang is hitting fourth and will replace Freese at third, INF/OF Sean Rodriguez is batting fifth and will be stationed in right field while 2B Josh Harrison will slide down from first to sixth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Of the Pirates' top six hitters from Friday's 5-1 loss, only Andrew McCutchen will retain his spot in the order (third). Marte and McCutchen each have a home run in limited at-bats against Roark and are the best plays from Pittsburgh's lineup in daily or traditional formats today.
