Twins | Brian Dozier sitting vs. Cleveland

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 15:13:37 -0700

Minnesota Twins 2B Brian Dozier is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 14. SS Eduardo Escobar is starting at second base and batting seventh against Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Dozier ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday. He has emerged as the premiere power hitter at the keystone this season with 24 home runs. Escobar ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is nothing more than a low-priced flier at FantasyScore Friday, and you should likely aim higher.

Twins | Brian Dozier has 10-game hit streak

Wed, 20 May 2015 14:28:02 -0700

Minnesota Twins 2B Brian Dozier enters the game Wednesday, May 20, riding a 10-game hitting streak. He has seven home runs on the season and leads all second baseman with the most home runs (48) since the start of the 2013 season.

Fantasy Tip: Dozier ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is hitting .342 (13-for-38) with five home runs and six RBI during his 10-game streak. Pittsburgh Pirates starter Jeff Locke has allowed at least three earned runs in five of his seven starts last year, including his last five starts, making Dozier a very strong play tonight at FantasyScore.
