Rockies | Ryan Raburn in lineup Tuesday

Tue, 24 May 2016 14:25:16 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Ryan Raburn is in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 24, against the Boston Red Sox as a designated hitter. Raburn will hit sixth against Red Sox SP David Price. His on-base plus slugging number is 1.061 against left-handed pitching.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn is hitting .300-5-12 overall, and his other stats rise against left-handed pitching. He should be given strong fantasy consideration against Price Tuesday night for that reason.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez gets a rare rest

Sat, 21 May 2016 12:47:26 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is not in the lineup on Saturday, May 21, against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jon Niese. Gonzalez has played in 40 of the Rockies' first 41 games, starting in 39. 1B Mark Reynolds will bat fourth, OF Gerardo Parra will slide over from left to right field and hit sixth, while OF Ryan Raburn will replace Parra in left and bat fifth.

Fantasy Tip: It's been a rough stretch at the plate to say the least for CarGo, who is batting .186 with a solo homer - which also accounts for his only RBI - this month and hitless over his last four games to boot. Raburn is always a savvy DFS play against left-handers, while Reynolds is sporting a .328 average despite striking out at his usual heavy rate. Both Raburn and Reynolds are sensible low-cost daily options today given how inconsistent Niese has been this season.

Rockies | Gerardo Parra out vs. lefty

Tue, 17 May 2016 14:47:08 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Gerardo Parra is not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals left-handed SP Jaime Garcia Tuesday, May 17. OF Ryan Raburn is starting in left field and is hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn's fantasy value peaks in daily formats when he starts against left-handers. After all, he mashes them. This year he has a .364 average (8-for-22) with three of his five homers against southpaws. At this point, he could be a very popular DFS lineup addition in these instances. Either way, he's a good pick tonight.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez takes a seat

Wed, 11 May 2016 09:08:24 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is out of the lineup Wednesday, May 11, with OF Ryan Raburn hitting fifth. 1B Mark Reynolds is hitting cleanup with 1B Ben Paulsen out against a left-hander.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn has a .389-3-6 split in 18 at-bats against lefties this season. He looks like a dynamite midrange flyer against Robbie Ray. Reynolds is hitting .333 overall and .387 against lefties. Give him a spin today as well.

Rockies | Charlie Blackmon takes a seat

Fri, 06 May 2016 16:02:33 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon is not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants left-handed SP Madison Bumgarner Friday, May 6. OF Ryan Raburn is starting in left field and hitting sixth, with OF Gerardo Parra shifting over to center field. Also, 2B DJ LeMahieu moves up to the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn is a notorious lefty killer, but MadBum isn't your typical southpaw on the hill tonight. It could prove difficult for Raburn to turn a profit in daily affairs. Parra becomes one to avoid in the tough lefty-lefty matchup. LeMahieu gains value with the move all the way up the order, but he should be seen as a contrarian play because of the matchup.

Rockies | Three Rockies regulars sitting

Wed, 04 May 2016 11:05:15 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Gerardo Parra, 2B DJ LeMahieu and C Nick Hundley are out of the lineup Wednesday, May 4. OF Ryan Raburn is hitting sixth, 2B Cristhian Adames is hitting ninth and C Tony Wolters hits seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn has an impressive .361-4-8 line in 36 at-bats. He's certainly worth the low-end flyer against Cesar Vargas. Adames is hitting .148 and isn't worth the stream in Petco Park. Wolters hasn't hit much since his first couple of games and isn't worth the start.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez out vs. lefty

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 15:25:13 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Robbie Ray Friday, April 29. OF Ryan Raburn draws into the lineup in left field and is hitting fifth in the order. 1B Mark Reynolds is batting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn is a notorious lefty killer and is a sound investment in DFS action this evening. Reynolds is coming off a three-hit, one-homer performance Wednesday and gains additional daily value in the cleanup spot in a potent offense. He's also worth a sleeper selection against Ray.

Rockies | Ryan Raburn in starting lineup

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 14:36:41 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Ryan Raburn is starting in left field and batting sixth Wednesday, April 27, against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jon Niese.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn is a regular in the lineup when the Rockies face off against a southpaw, and the same will hold true when Niese toes the rubber at Coors Field for the Pirates. Raburn can be useful in these matchups, as he excels against left-handed pitching. In fact, the former Cleveland Indian hit .325 off lefties last year compared to just .136 versus right-handers. He's out to a pretty good start this season, already having three homers and six RBI in just 27 at-bats.

Rockies | Ryan Raburn draws into lineup

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 13:44:27 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Ryan Raburn is starting in left field and hitting seventh against Los Angeles Dodgers left-handed SP Scott Kazmir Friday, April 22. 1B Ben Paulsen will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: At home at hitter-friendly Coors Field against a soft-tossing lefty is the perfect time to roll with Raburn as a cheap flyer in daily formats. Last year against southpaws Raburn hit .325/.415/.589 with all eight of his long balls. Sneaky good value here.

Rockies | Ben Paulsen sitting out Saturday

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 10:28:10 -0700

Colorado Rockies 1B/OF Ben Paulsen is out of the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta Saturday, April 16. INF Mark Reynolds is playing first base and batting fifth, while OF Ryan Raburn is playing left field and batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Paulsen is off to a decent start in 2016, batting .318 with three RBI through his first nine games, but he will give way to the free-swinging Reynolds, who is homeless through his first seven contests. Raburn is 5-for-12 with a pair of home runs but does not have a favorable matchup versus Arrieta.
