From -- thru  --


Nationals | Clint Robinson a late scratch

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 15:53:48 -0700

Washington Nationals 1B Clint Robinson (illness) was a late scratch against the New York Mets Friday, July 24, due to illness. OF Matt den Dekker draws into the lineup in left field, and he will bat eighth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Robinson ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) from your fantasy lineups Friday. den Dekker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief Friday, and FantasyScore players should likely look elsewhere.

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 12:47:45 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Matt den Dekker is starting in left field and batting eighth against New York Mets SP Matt Harvey Monday, July 20.

Fantasy Tip: Typically, den Dekker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) drawing in at minimum salary would make him a potential low-priced flier. It is a daunting matchup Monday against Harvey, though. Plus, den Dekker has just 32 plate appearances this season.

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 08:32:40 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Moore ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) should be back in the starting lineup in the next few games. den Dekker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has three hits and two RBI over his last six games and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Nationals | Denard Span remains out

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 12:26:18 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Denard Span (back) is out of the lineup for the second straight day Wednesday, July 8. OF Michael Taylor is starting in center field and hitting leadoff against Cincinnati Reds SP Michael Lorenzen. OF Matt den Dekker also is starting in left field for the second straight game.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) swings and misses often, but his placement atop the lineup gives more justification for a dice roll with him in your daily lineups against Lorenzen. den Dekker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be ignored.

Nationals | Denard Span out Tuesday

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 12:32:04 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Denard Span (back) is not playing Tuesday, July 7, against the Cincinnati Reds. OF Michael Taylor has taken Span's place in center field, and OF Matt den Dekker is in left.

Fantasy Tip: Span ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) should be left out of your lineup until the all-clear is given, but back spasms could be a hindrance for a while. Taylor ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is hitting .182 against Cincinnati pitching. He hasn't seen starter Johnny Cueto this season, but this average is not a good sign.

Nationals | Denard Span scratched late

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 15:02:53 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Denard Span (back) was a late scratch from the game Friday, June 26. OF Michael Taylor moves into center field and is hitting first, and OF Matt den Dekker is playing right field and batting eighth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Harang Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) receives a nice value boost setting the table for the Nats. den Dekker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) and Span ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) should be avoided in all formats. Make sure to check back on Span's availability for the rest of the series, as this isn't the first time he has missed time due to back spasms.

Mets | Matt den Dekker, Eric Campbell in platoon

Fri, 15 Aug 2014 14:35:36 -0700

New York Mets OF Eric Campbell is starting in left field against a left-handed pitcher Friday, Aug. 15, and he and OF Matt den Dekker are essentially involved in a platoon at the position.
