Pirates | No Aramis Ramirez against St. Louis

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 14:27:16 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Aramis Ramirez is not in the starting lineup Friday, Sept. 4. SS Jordy Mercer draws into the lineup and is batting eighth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez Friday.

Fantasy Tip: The veteran Ramirez ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) projects to receive a few games off down the stretch. He has struggled to re-accustom himself to Pittsburgh and sports an underwhelming .697 OPS over 33 games. FantasyScore players shouldn't view Mercer ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) as anything more than a desperation source of cap relief against Martinez ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) Friday.

Pirates | Jung Ho Kang batting cleanup

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 13:02:50 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jung Ho Kang is starting at third base and batting fourth against Colorado Rockies SP Jon Gray Friday, Aug. 28. 3B Aramis Ramirez is not in the the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Kang ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) owns a .323/.392/.579 slash line since the All-Star break with 23 runs, eight home runs and 17 RBI. He is worth a long look at FantasyScore Friday. Ramirez ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has been underwhelming since joining Pittsburgh with a .250/.298/.337 slash line and just one home run. Don't be surprised to see his playing time decrease, if he doesn't improve his production at the dish.

Pirates | Aramis Ramirez will have set off days

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 13:50:07 -0700

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Aramis Ramirez is unlikely to play games when the club will travel the same day, according to manager Clint Hurdle.

Fantasy Tip: Reiterating a past tip, Ramirez ($3,800, 7.6% of cap), Josh Harrison ($4,100, 8.2% of cap), Jordy Mercer ($2,400, 4.8% of cap), Jung Ho Kang ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) and Neil Walker ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) project to rotate around the infield and receive semi-regular starts. It is a slight hit to all their fantasy value, but shouldn't be seen as a deal breaker for anyone except Mercer. It should also present value at FantasyScore, though, so check the Pirates lineup before locking in your own.

Pirates | Aramis Ramirez draws out of the lineup

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 13:40:12 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Aramis Ramirez is not in the starting lineup Monday, Aug. 24. SS Jordy Mercer is starting at shortstop and batting eighth with SS Jung Ho Kang sliding over to play third base and bat fourth against Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler Monday. 2B Josh Harrison is not in the starting lineup Monday, either.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Ramirez ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) and Harrison ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Monday. Expect the Pirates to split up starts among their infielders, which slightly caps all their seasonal value. Mercer ($2,400, 4.8% of cap), Kang ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) and Neil Walker ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) will also receive some games off. For FantasyScore contests Monday, Kang is the more attractive shortstop option.

Pirates | Josh Harrison out of Sunday lineup

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 13:43:24 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Josh Harrison is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 23, against the San Francisco Giants. 3B Aramis Ramirez is batting fourth against Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong.

Fantasy Tip: Harrison ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) just came off the disabled list earlier this week, so this might be the team's way of keeping him refreshed by sitting him. He has been pressing with no hits in five at-bats. Ramirez ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is 9-for-27 with a .333 average against Vogelsong, so feel free to play him in FantasyScore.

Pirates | Josh Harrison playing third base

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 11:22:26 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates INF Josh Harrison will bat sixth and play third base against San Francisco Giants SP Mike Leake Saturday, Aug. 22. 3B Aramis Ramirez is not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Harrison ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is 6-for-22 with a double and a home run in his career against Leake. He is hitless in two at-bats since returning from the disabled list with a thumb injury.

Pirates | Aramis Ramirez to lose playing time

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 13:43:26 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Aramis Ramirez will not be an "everyday guy" going forward, according to manager Clint Hurdle.

Fantasy Tip: That goes without saying now that Josh Harrison is back from the DL. Ramirez ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) will mainly start against left-handers from now on, like he is tonight. He's hitting just .192 (14-for-73) with four of his 12 homers off lefties, though, so he'll be a mediocre, under-the-radar sleeper pick.

Pirates | Big game for Aramis Ramirez

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 16:26:04 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Aramis Ramirez went 4-for-5 with a double, three RBI and a run scored in an 8-1 win over the New York Mets Sunday, Aug. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has hit safely in nine of his last 10 games, driving in 11 runs over the stretch. He has at least one RBI in four straight games, and he is providing solid production at FantasyScore for an affordable price.

Pirates | Aramis Ramirez practices at first base

Sat, 15 Aug 2015 10:03:31 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Aramis Ramirez fielded grounders and took throws at first base prior to the game against the St. Louis Cardinals Thursday, Aug. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) could see reduced playing time at the hot corner once Josh Harrison (thumb) and Jordy Mercer (knee) return from the disabled list later this month, so learning first base could be beneficial for him. He has never played the position in his professional baseball career.

Pirates | No Aramis Ramirez Thursday

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 12:49:31 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Aramis Ramirez is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 13. 1B Sean Rodriguez is starting at the hot corner and hitting eighth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Lance Lynn.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) hasn't done much at all at the plate this year and should be left alone in all formats for the start tonight.
