Diamondbacks | Arizona resting three players

Sun, 01 May 2016 12:44:02 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Jean Segura, 3B Jake Lamb and C Welington Castillo are not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies Chad Bettis Sunday, May 1. 2B Phil Gosselin will start at second base and is batting first in the lineup. 3B Brandon Drury will start at third base and is batting second, while C Chris Herrmann will start at catcher and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Drury is hitting .321 with three runs and five RBI over the last seven days and should be an attractive starting option in most leagues. Gosselin is batting .276 in limited playing time and could be an option for desperate owners in daily fantasy leagues. Herrmann should be avoided by all owners.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb, David Peralta out

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 12:46:38 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb and OF David Peralta are not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Sunday, April 24. OF Brandon Drury will start in right field and is batting second, while 2B Phil Gosselin will start in third base and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Drury is batting .400 with one home run and three RBI over the last seven days and is a fine starting option in most leagues. Gosselin has gone hitless in his last three games but is hitting .280 this season and could be a cheaper option in daily fantasy leagues.

Diamondbacks | Two D-Backs sitting Thursday

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 09:40:34 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed and C Welington Castillo are out of the lineup Thursday, April 21, with 2B Phil Gosselin hitting sixth and C Chris Herrmann hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Gosselin is 5-for-9 (.556) with a homer the last seven days. He's a low-end flyer worth using against Johnny Cueto. Herrmann is just 1-for-17 (.059) on the season and isn't worth consideration.

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 | Phil Gosselin goes deep

Mon, 14 Mar 2016 19:33:02 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Phil Gosselin socked a two-run home run Monday, March 14, in Cactus League spring play against the Seattle Mariners.

Fantasy Tip: Gosselin is battling Brandon Drury for at-bats and playing time behind Jake Lamb and Chris Owings at third base and second base. He has a chance to have some value in deeper NL-only fantasy leagues, but he needs Owings or Lamb to have a long-term injury before he is worth using in other formats.

Diamondbacks | Phil Gosselin in running for 2B opening

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 16:53:49 -0800

Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Phil Gosselin is one of a handful of candidates for the team's second-base job. Gosselin, 2B Chris Owings, SS Jean Segura and SS Nick Ahmed are all expected to draw starts at the keystone corner in Cactus League action.

Fantasy Tip: Gosselin can play second, third and both corners in the outfield, and may see some time at first this spring as well. In short, he's probably more valuable to the Diamondbacks as a super-sub than as a regular starter at one position. Gosselin hit .303 in 24 games during the last month of the season, but can be left on waivers in most standard leagues.

Diamondbacks | Phil Gosselin walks off a winner

Wed, 30 Sep 2015 01:00:00 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Phil Gosselin knocked in the winning run Tuesday, Sept. 29, as the Diamondbacks needed 11 innings for a 4-3 win over the Colorado Rockies.

Fantasy Tip: Gosselin ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) can play three different positions, so he could go into 2016 as a versatile bench threat for the Diamondbacks. He has a .429 average in the last week, so he could be a way to save cap space should Gosselin earn a start.

Diamondbacks | Aaron Hill not in lineup Saturday

Sat, 19 Sep 2015 11:22:37 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Aaron Hill is not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Mike Leake Saturday, Sept. 19. INF Phil Gosselin will bat sixth and play second base.

Fantasy Tip: Gosselin ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is batting .257 with two home runs and nine RBIs this month and can be viewed as a productive source of salary cap relief in FantasyScore.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb out vs. southpaw

Fri, 11 Sep 2015 15:46:42 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb is not in the starting lineup Friday, Sept. 11. 2B Phil Gosselin is starting at third base and batting fifth against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Alex Wood Friday, Sept. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Lamb ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) typically sits against lefties, so seasonal owners should take that into account for the stretch drive if you're looking to pack as much punch as possible over the final weeks. Gosselin ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation flier for FantasyScore contests Friday.
