Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb, Michael Bourn out Sunday

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 09:30:27 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb and OF Michael Bourn are not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Brandon Finnegan Sunday, July 24. INF/OF Chris Owings will hit sixth and play center field, while INF/OF Brandon Drury will bat seventh and play third base. In addition, INF Phil Gosselin will bat second and play second base, OF Rickie Weeks will hit cleanup and start in left field and C Welington Castillo will bat fifth and start behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Arizona is using a lineup exclusively made up of right-handed and switch hitters against the lefty Finnegan this afternoon, which explains the absences of Bourn and Lamb. Although he has struggled recently, Weeks may be worthy of consideration as a value play in DFS because he is hitting fourth and has performed well on the road (.304) and against southpaws (.278) this season.

Diamondbacks | Rickie Weeks batting cleanup

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 15:07:20 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Rickie Weeks is starting in left field and batting fourth against San Diego Padres SP Christian Friedrich Tuesday, July 5. Arizona INF/OF Phil Gosselin is not in the starting lineup Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Weeks owns a .563 slugging percentage against southpaws this season, and he is a potential low-priced flier for daily contests Tuesday. However, his seasonal value is tied to cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. Gosselin's playing time projects to dwindle once Arizona is healthy, and his .263/.315/.347 slash line doesn't exactly move the fantasy needle.

Diamondbacks | Three D-backs resting Wednesday

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 09:23:43 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed, C Welington Castillo and OF Peter O'Brien are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 29. 2B Phil Gosselin is starting at second and hitting second, C Chris Herrmann is catching and batting sixth and 3B Brandon Drury is in left field and hitting seventh against Philadelphia Phillies SP Zach Eflin.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the juicy lineup spot, Gosselin is a light-hitting middle infielder that isn't attractive to those playing DFS today. Drury had a hot start to the year but has faded with limited playing time and is a low-end option near the bottom of the order. Herrmann has been a big surprise this year with a .298/.363/.529 slash line, six home runs and 26 RBI. You could do much worse than Herrmann if you're looking for a cheap value pick at catcher in daily games.

Diamondbacks | Arizona resting two players

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 15:19:35 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo and SS Nick Ahmed are not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Anderson Friday, June 24. 2B Jean Segura will start at shortstop, while 2B Phil Gosselin will start at second base and is batting fourth. C Chris Herrmann will start at catcher and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Gosselin has been producing at the plate recently and has a .353 batting average and one RBI over the last seven days. He could be a sleeper option in some daily fantasy leagues. Herrmann is hitting .276 in June and should be a starting option in two-catcher leagues and some daily leagues.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb sitting vs. Toronto

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 09:57:15 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 22. INF Phil Gosselin is starting at third base and batting second against Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Lamb has been seeing more time against left-handed hurlers lately, but draws out Wednesday. He is putting together a great season, though, and his 34 runs, 14 home runs, 45 RBI and .278/.361/.556 slash line plays in the majority of seasonal leagues. Gosselin owns a career .731 OPS against southpaws and checks out as a viable flier in daily contests Wednesday.

Diamondbacks | Paul Goldschmidt sits Monday

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 07:49:19 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt is out of the lineup Monday, June 20, with 1B Phil Gosselin hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Gosselin has a .253-1-5 this season and doesn't have a lot of luster in the two-hole ahead of Jake Lamb instead of Goldy. The D-Backs face Jeremy Hellickson, but Gosselin isn't a fruitful DFS play.

Diamondbacks | David Peralta remains sidelined Sunday

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 08:19:30 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF David Peralta (back), INF Jean Segura and C Welington Castillo are not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Zach Eflin Sunday, June 19. INF Phil Gosselin will lead off and play second base, C Chris Herrmann will bat fifth and start behind the plate, OF Brandon Drury will bat seventh and play right field and SS Nick Ahmed will bat eighth and play shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Herrmann and Drury are the best bets for daily fantasy players searching for productive sources of salary cap relief, although both players have struggled recently. Herrmann is batting .282 with six home runs and 23 RBI through 103 at-bats but is just 2-for-11 over the past two weeks. Drury is hitting .270 with eight home runs and 18 RBI through 55 games but has collected only nine hits over his last 53 at-bats (.170), while striking out 18 times.
