Pirates | Gregory Polanco back in lineup

Thu, 28 May 2015 14:37:22 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco is back in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy Thursday, May 28, after sitting out the last two games.

Fantasy Tip: Polanco ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has been in a funk at the plate, going 4-for-30 (.133) with one RBI since May 13. He does have 12 stolen bases on the season, but hitting near the bottom of the order will mitigate his fantasy value for his speed. Until we see signs of life from Polanco with the lumber, it's best to stay away from him at FantasyScore.

Pirates | Gregory Polanco out again

Wed, 27 May 2015 09:24:49 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco is out of the lineup again Wednesday, May 27. 3B Josh Harrison moves to right field and is hitting leadoff against Miami Marlins SP Brad Hand, while SS Jung Ho Kang starts at third base again.

Fantasy Tip: Both Harrison ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) and Kang ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) have been swinging hot bats of late, and both are solid FantasyScore options against Hand, who is making a spot start for the Fish. For that matter, stacking your daily lineups with Pirates hitters isn't a bad idea today.

Pirates | Gregory Polanco not playing

Tue, 26 May 2015 15:18:59 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 26. 3B Josh Harrison moves to right field, and SS Jung Ho Kang is starting at third base and hitting fifth in the batting order against Miami Marlins SP Jose Urena.

Fantasy Tip: Polanco ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is hitting .192 (14-for-73) with no homers and five RBI this month while striking out 16 times. He's a weak play until he shows signs of life. Both Harrison ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) and Kang ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) could be excellent value plays tonight against Urena, who is making his big league starting debut.

Pirates | Gregory Polanco will not start

Sun, 24 May 2015 09:46:07 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 24. OF Jose Tabata will start in right field for the Pirates.

Fantasy Tip: Polanco ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) likely is sitting out since the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Tabata has picked up two hits in his three at-bats since joining the team but may need more plate appearances to be trusted as a starting fantasy option.

Pirates | Gregory Polanco bumped down the order

Fri, 22 May 2015 12:34:28 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco is batting eighth against the New York Mets Friday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: Polanco ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) had a nice surge setting the table of the Pirates, but he has a measly .412 OPS dating back to Tuesday, May 5, so a demotion in the lineup shouldn't be surprising. At his cap hit, he is a risky FantasyScore play, and especially against capable hurler Noah Syndergaard.

Pirates | Gregory Polanco out of Wednesday lineup

Wed, 20 May 2015 12:44:53 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco is out of the starting lineup Wednesday, May 20, against the Minnesota Twins. The move triggered a chain reaction, as 3B Josh Harrison took Polanco's spot in right field, SS Jung-Ho Kang moved over to third and SS Jordy Mercer is playing shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Polanco ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is struggling mightily in the past 10 games with a .161 batting average. Wednesday's benching is also due in part to Twins right-hander Mike Pelfrey being on the mound. Still, Polanco is losing his fantasy value at this high price. Don't be surprised to see this more often if Polanco struggles.

Pirates | Gregory Polanco sticking atop lineup?

Fri, 01 May 2015 14:45:11 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco is batting leadoff for a second consecutive game Friday, May 1.

Fantasy Tip: Josh Harrison ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) had been leading off, but Polanco ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) might be better suited for the gig. Polanco is 15-for-44 (.341 average) with 12 runs and five stolen bases over his last 12 games, after all. Polanco's stolen base and runs scored potential receives a boost leading off, but his RBI takes a minor hit. Overall, consider it a positive for Polanco.
