Red Sox | Mookie Betts out again

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 13:30:03 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts (knee) is out of the lineup Saturday, July 23, with OF Michael Martinez hitting ninth. Manager John Farrell said nothing is structurally wrong with Betts. He is day to day, but he could miss some time.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez isn't a potent enough bat to use in fantasy, even against Ricky Nolasco. Keep an eye on what the Red Sox opt to do in Betts' absence. Chris Marrero could come up, and he'd be a matchup play.

Red Sox | Mookie Betts has sore right knee

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 17:42:37 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts (knee) left the game against the Minnesota Twins Friday, July 22, because of right knee soreness. He is considered day-to-day and was replaced in right field by INF/OF Michael Martinez.

Fantasy Tip: Betts went 1-for-2 with a solo home run before leaving Friday's contest after the fourth inning. The 23-year-old is 8-for-14 with three homers in his last four games and is a viable option in all fantasy formats when healthy.

Indians | Juan Uribe back in lineup Sunday

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 08:34:31 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Juan Uribe is back in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander Sunday, June 26, with INF Jose Ramirez playing second base and INF/OF Michael Martinez playing left field. 2B Jason Kipnis (illness) and OF Rajai Davis are receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Uribe is hitting just .196 over the past four weeks and is not a recommended fantasy option this afternoon. Martinez is 6-for-13 (.462) with a home run and two RBI over the past two weeks and can be viewed as a productive source of salary cap relief in DFS.

Indians | Tyler Naquin sitting vs. Rays

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 12:16:42 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Tyler Naquin is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 20. INF/OF Michael Martinez is starting in right field and batting ninth against SP Drew Smyly Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Naquin hasn't started the past three games against left-handed hurlers, so this has all the makings of a platoon going forward. Martinez is a low-end option in cavernous mixed and AL-only formats, and Naquin has slightly more value because of his excellent production when given a chance thus far (.320/.375/.553 slash line through 112 plate appearances).

Indians | Tyler Naquin, Lonnie Chisenhall resting

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 07:54:51 -0700

Cleveland Indians OFs Tyler Naquin and Lonnie Chisenhall are not in the starting lineup versus Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon Sunday, June 19. OF Rajai Davis will lead off and play center field, while OF Michael Martinez bats ninth and plays right field.

Fantasy Tip: Davis should be viewed as a viable outfield option in all fantasy formats today. He is batting .287 at home and is hitting .267 versus left-handed pitching this season. Martinez is 8-for-20 at the plate this month and is batting .467 at home through 15 at-bats, making him a potential value play for daily fantasy games.

Indians | Tyler Naquin sitting vs. White Sox

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 12:44:13 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Tyler Naquin is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 17. INF Michael Martinez is starting in center field and batting ninth against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Naquin has fared well whenever he has been handed an opportunity this season with a .300/.346/.490 slash line, 16 runs, four home runs and 10 RBI through just 107 plate appearances. But he is still nothing more than a depth outfielder in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. Martinez is a desperation own in similar deep formats, and he can be ignored in daily contests Friday.

Cleveland Indians INF Michael Martinez is starting at third base and batting ninth against Kansas City Royals SP Ian Kennedy Wednesday, June 15. INF/OF Jose Ramirez and 3B Juan Uribe (groin) are not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez is the only real fantasy option, and he has 30 runs, 22 RBI, seven stolen bases and a .292/.360/.417 slash line through 215 plate appearances this season. Uribe and Martinez are nothing more than desperation owns in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues.
