Twins | Three Twins starters on the bench

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 09:33:52 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Robbie Grossman, SS Eduardo Escobar and C Kurt Suzuki are not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello Sunday, July 24. SS Eduardo Nunez will start at shortstop, while 1B Kennys Vargas will serve as the designated hitter and is batting sixth. OF Eddie Rosario will start in left field and is batting seven, while C Juan Centeno will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Vargas is hitting .211 with one RBI over the last seven days and probably will not be the best starting candidate for most owners. Rosario should be a sleeper option in daily fantasy leagues because he is hitting .396 with two home runs and seven RBI in July. Centeno is hitting .245 this season and would only have value in two-catcher leagues.

Twins | Kennys Vargas takes a seat vs. Boston

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 12:47:51 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Kennys Vargas is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 22. SS Eduardo Escobar draws into the lineup at shortstop and is batting sixth against Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Vargas is 12-for-39 with a .718 slugging percentage over 12 games since being recalled. If you're chasing power, he's a worthy add in all settings. Escobar is nothing more than a desperation flier in daily contests and depth option in cavernous mixed and AL-only seasonal leagues.

Twins | Two Twins riding the pine

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 08:38:12 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Byron Buxton and SS Eduardo Escobar (hamstring) are out of the lineup Wednesday, July 6, with OF Eddie Rosario hitting seventh and SS Danny Santana hitting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Rosario is hitting .203, and Santana is hitting .244. Neither are good options against Sonny Gray today.

Twins | Joe Mauer, Eduardo Escobar out

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 13:18:21 -0700

Minnesota Twins C Joe Mauer and SS Eduardo Escobar (hamstring) are not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Sean Manaea Tuesday, July 5. 1B Kennys Vargas will start at first base and is batting fifth. SS Eduardo Nunez will start at shortstop, while OF Robbie Grossman will serve as the designated hitter. OF Danny Santana will start in left field and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Vargas went hitless in his only other start of the season, so owners outside of AL-only leagues should avoid him. Santana is hitting only .188 over the last seven days and is not a strong fantasy option.

Minnesota Twins SS Eduardo Escobar (hamstring) and OF Byron Buxton are out of the lineup Monday, July 4, with 1B Kennys Vargas hitting fifth and OF Danny Santana hitting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Vargas has power potential, and he's worth a basement play against Kendall Graveman. Santana isn't much of an option at the bottom of the order.
