Reds | Tucker Barnhart sitting vs. Friars

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 12:35:57 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Tucker Barnhart is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 23. C Ramon Cabrera is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against San Diego Padres SP Christian Friedrich Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Barnhart is a low-end option in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and NL-only formats, but he does receive the majority of starts, so his volume slightly helps maintain his limited fantasy value. Cabrera is a respectable 23-for-73 (.315 batting average) in the majors, and he could be utilized as a low-priced flier in daily contests Thursday.

Reds | Tucker Barnhart back in lineup Saturday

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 10:49:57 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Tucker Barnhart is back in the starting lineup versus Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Saturday, June 18, batting ninth. In addition, 1B Joey Votto will serve as the designated hitter and bat second, with INF Ivan De Jesus batting eighth and playing first base.

Fantasy Tip: Barnhart is hitless in 14 at-bats this week, so owners should avoid using him during the midst of his slump. De Jesus is hitting .323 with seven RBI in 31 at-bats over the past four weeks and should be viewed as a productive source of cap relief in daily fantasy games.

Reds | Tyler Holt, Tucker Barnhart out Sunday

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 08:14:06 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Tyler Holt and C Tucker Barnhart are not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Kendall Graveman Sunday, June 12. OF Steve Selsky will play center field and bat seventh, with C Ramon Cabrera starting behind the plate and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Selsky is 1-for-3 at the plate this season and doesn't have enough of a track record to be worth considering for daily fantasy games. Cabrera has eight hits in 32 at-bats and should be viewed as nothing more than an inexpensive flier.

Reds | Tucker Barnhart returns to lineup

Sat, 04 Jun 2016 10:59:57 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Tucker Barnhart is back in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg Saturday, June 4, batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Although Barnhart carries a five-game hitting streak into Saturday's contest, he has only had one multi-hit game in his last 17 appearances. Daily fantasy players should be able to find better options for a similar price.

Reds | Billy Hamilton out of lineup Saturday

Sat, 28 May 2016 10:19:48 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton is not in the starting lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Chase Anderson Saturday, May 28. OF Tyler Holt will bat seventh and play center field. In addition, C Tucker Barnhart is back in the lineup as the No. 8 batter.

Fantasy Tip: Holt is batting just .161 (5-for-31) with a double and three RBI this month and is not a great fantasy option. Barnhart has also cooled off after a solid April, with just 13 hits in 68 at-bats during May.

Fantasy Tip: Each of the four players filling in for the regulars who are resting should be viewed as nothing more than sources of desperation cap relief in daily fantasy contests.

Reds | Tucker Barnhart to play a lot

Tue, 03 May 2016 16:29:56 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Tucker Barnhart "will play a lot" with C Devin Mesoraco (shoulder) possibly out for the rest of the year with a torn labrum in his left shoulder, according to manager Bryan Price. C Ramon Cabrera will serve as the backup, and C/3B Jordan Pacheco is the third backstop if a need arises. Barnhart, a switch-hitter, has improved his offensive game and has been hitting the ball hard this year.

Fantasy Tip: Barnhart has 14 hits in 47 at-bats (.298) this year after slashing .252/.324/.326 with three homers and 18 RBI in 242 at-bats in 2015. He's a second catcher option for those in two-catcher or NL-only leagues. He could be a decent short-term replacement if you own Mesoraco or d'Arnaud.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco not in lineup

Mon, 02 May 2016 11:40:41 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco remains out of the starting lineup Monday, May 2. C Tucker Barnhart is behind the plate and batting eighth against San Francisco Giants SP Johnny Cueto.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco is hitting .140/.218/.160 with one RBI in 50 at-bats and hasn't started since last Wednesday. It's time to start looking for other catching options in mixed leagues. Barnhart, on the other hand, is hitting .302 (13-for-43). However, he has only four career home runs and is nothing more than a low-end second catcher in two-catcher formats.
