Reds | Tucker Barnhart draws into lineup

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 15:13:38 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Tucker Barnhart is starting behind the plate and batting seventh against Kansas City Royals SP Jeremy Guthrie Wednesday, Aug. 19. C Brayan Pena is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Barnhart ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) and Pena ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) are both switch hitters, and they've entered a full-on platoon. Each has started three of the past six games. It is hard on their seasonal value, but at FantasyScore, they're both low-priced options for favorable matchups. Barnhart is worth a look as a lineup filler Wednesday.
