Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 20. C Tucker Barnhart is starting and hitting ninth in the batting order against Kansas City Royals SP Jeremy Guthrie.
Fantasy Tip: Barnhart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) does have two home runs and a .308 average (8-for-26) in a small sample size, but he should remain a low-end catching commodity at FantasyScore.

Cincinnati Reds C Tucker Barnhart is starting behind the plate against the San Francisco Giants Saturday, May 16.
Fantasy Tip: Barnhart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is batting .304 through 23 at-bats this season, with a pair of home runs and three RBIs. He is an intriguing catching option for FantasyScore owners who would rather spend their money at other positions.

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena is taking the day off Monday, May 11. C Tucker Barnhart is starting and hitting eighth in the batting order against Atlanta Braves SP Shelby Miller.
Fantasy Tip: Barnhart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be considered a weak option at FantasyScore tonight going up against Miller, who has pitched extremely well in 2015 while effectively using his sinker to his advantage. Barnhart is hitting .250 (5-for-20) with two home runs and two RBI on the year.

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena (forearm) is dealing with soreness in his right forearm and does not want to aggravate it. He was scheduled to play in the second game of the team's doubleheader Tuesday, July 8, against the Chicago Cubs, but he is no longer in the starting lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Devin Mesoraco started the first game of the doubleheader, so Tucker Barnhart will catch and bat eighth in game No. 2. Pena was in the plan to spot start at first base occasionally, with Joey Votto on the disabled list, so monitor the situation. Neftali Soto hit another home run last night for Triple-A Louisville, and he is a potential add in NL-only leagues, if he gets recalled.
