Diamondbacks | Nick Ahmed takes a seat

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 14:46:52 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed is not in the starting lineup Friday, April 29. SS Jean Segura moves to shortstop and 3B Brandon Drury is starting at second base and is hitting seventh against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Chatwood.

Fantasy Tip: Ahmed is a defensive-first shortstop who's hitting just .190 (15-for-79), and he could see more bench time if Drury continues to swing a hot bat. Ahmed is an NL-only depth piece. Drury is hitting a cool .414 (12-for-29) with two homers and four RBI in his last seven games. He's a waiver wire target in deep mixed leagues for depth. Keep rolling with him as a low-priced sleeper in daily formats while he's hot.

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 23:55:05 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Jean Segura had two more hits Wednesday, April 27, against the St. Louis Cardinals. It was his 11th multi-hit game, most in the majors.

Fantasy Tip: Segura is hitting a cool .350 with a sparkling .932 OPS, and he has hit safely in each of his past seven games. He has emerged as a must-start in all fantasy formats.

Arizona Diamondbacks SS/2B Jean Segura was 4-for-6 including a three-run homer Monday, April 25, against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Segura is hitting .400 at home and .352 overall. He's a daily consideration in DFS.

Diamondbacks | Jean Segura continues to produce

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 11:40:57 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS/2B Jean Segura is among the league leaders in hits, three-hit games, multi-hit games and total bases, and he has 28 hits in the first 20 games of the year, which is the most by an Arizona player since OF Justin Upton had 28 in 2008. Segura is batting .324 with five RBI in his last seven games and is hitting .367 at home.

Fantasy Tip: It's a great start for Segura and his owners, but it won't last at this rate. For one, he's already hit half of his home run total from last year, and his .352 batting average on balls in play (BAPIB) is well over his career norm. Now would be the right time to sell high on Segura.

Diamondbacks | Jean Segura has three hits

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 00:35:57 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Jean Segura had three hits, including a go-ahead single, on Monday, April 18, in a 9-7 win over the San Francisco Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Segura is a sleeper second baseman for the time being. He was hitting .333-3-6 entering Monday, one year after a .257 campaign with six home runs. The fact he is halfway to last year's homer total is something to think about, and Segura should be entered in fantasy lineups as long as he is this hot.

Diamondbacks | Quintet of Arizona hitters catch a break

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 12:02:26 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt, OF David Peralta, 2B Jean Segura, OF Socrates Brito and C Welington Castillo are not in the lineup on Sunday, April 17, against San Diego Padres SP Robbie Erlin. 2B/OF Rickie Weeks will start in left and bat second, INF Phil Gosselin will play first base and hit third, INF/OF Brandon Drury will move to second base and bat fifth, OF Chris Owings will man center and bat seventh while C Chris Herrmann will set up behind the plate and hit eighth.

Fantasy Tip: For some perspective on how much offensive firepower Arizona is resting on Sunday, Yasmany Tomas moves up from eighth in Saturday's lineup to fourth in today's order. In the wake of last night's 14-inning marathon, the most recommended plays could the pitchers (Erlin and Patrick Corbin), each of whom will face a lineup missing about a good chunk of its regular hitters.

Diamondbacks | Pack of Arizona hitters take a seat

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 12:27:44 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Jean Segura, C Welington Castillo, LF Yasmany Tomas and SS Nick Ahmed are out of the lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta on Sunday, April 10. OF Socrates Brito is batting leadoff in place of Segura while 2B Phil Gosselin is at the keystone and hitting second. 3B/OF Brandon Drury is in left and batting fifth while INF/OF Chris Owings is replacing Segura in the field and hitting seventh. C Chris Hermann is behind the plate and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Arrieta was already a strong play Sunday and facing a number of Arizona bench players probably isn't going to hurt his cause. Conversely, it's hard to recommend starting any Diamondbacks outside of Paul Goldschmidt and maybe David Peralta in year-long or DFS formats in this contest.

Diamondbacks | Jean Segura continues hot start

Sat, 09 Apr 2016 05:07:18 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Jean Segura went 3-for-4 with two doubles against the Chicago Cubs Friday, April 8. He has become the first player in franchise history to start a season with five multi-hit games.

Fantasy Tip: Segura has started the season with 11 hits in his first 22 at-bats with six of the hits being extra base hits. Segura likely will cool off at some point, but owners should use him in their lineups during his hot streak.

Diamondbacks | Jean Segura to cool off?

Fri, 08 Apr 2016 10:25:39 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Jean Segura is hitting just .071 in 14 at-bats in the last five years against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel, who he faces Friday, April 8.

Fantasy Tip: Segura is off to a fine start with his new team, with eight hits (three home runs) in his first 18 at-bats. Segura hit just six home runs last season, so it's safe to say this pace won't stick. However, despite bad results against Hammel, it's hard to go away from Segura while he's hot to begin the year.

Diamondbacks | Jean Segura produces two homers

Fri, 08 Apr 2016 09:30:41 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Jean Segura went 2-for-4 with two home runs Thursday, April 7, against the Chicago Cubs. One of them was an inside-the-park homer. He finished the game with two runs scored and two RBI.

Fantasy Tip: The former All-Star has value right now hitting atop a potent Diamondbacks batting order. He might be worth a speculative pickup in most standard leagues, as he seems to be trending up.
