Pirates | Three Pirates regulars out

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 14:35:03 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte (face), OF Gregory Polanco and 1B John Jaso are out of the lineup Saturday, June 18. 1B David Freese is hitting fifth, OF Matt Joyce hits sixth and OF Sean Rodriguez hits seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Freese is hitting .349 against lefties this year, and he's a decent flyer against Jon Lester. Joyce hits left-handed, but he hits lefties to a .313 clip. He's a decent low-end grab, too. Rodriguez's production has hit a freefall, but he hits .289 against lefties. He's an iffy low-end flyer.

Fantasy Tip: Joyce is probably the only player that has value among the new players in the lineup. Joyce is hitting .319 on the season and should be an attractive option in daily fantasy leagues.

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 15:36:15 -0700

Fantasy Tip: McCutchen has started slow in the past and remains stuck in neutral, but he should remain a starter in all seasonal leagues. Get him back into your lineups. Polanco, meanwhile, is having a breakout season and is contributing across the board for fantasy owners. Both players are strong plays against the soft-tossing Weaver.
