Cardinals | Yadier Molina slumping

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 10:50:58 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina is stuck in a 4-for-45 slump entering the game Wednesday, June 1, and he has started 49 of the team's first 54 games. Molina could be rested more once C Brayan Pena (knee) returns in a couple of weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Molina is still hitting .271 with a homer and 19 RBI and remains one of the better fantasy starting catchers to own despite his recent slump. Ride it out and wait for Molina to find his groove at the plate again.

Cardinals | Brayan Pena undergoes surgery

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 20:59:39 -0700

Fantasy Tip: With Pena on the shelf, Eric Fryer will serve as the primary backup backstop to Yadier Molina.

Cardinals | Brayan Pena to DL

Sat, 02 Apr 2016 13:46:21 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Brayan Pena (knee) will open the season on the disabled list to remove a loose particle of cartilage in his left knee, an injury that Pena says stems from a dugout slip during the spring. The injury is expected to sideline him two to four weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Pena was slated to begin the season as Yadier Molina's backup catcher - a job that will belong to Eric Fryer for the next few weeks. The biggest fantasy impact here is that Molina may play in a game or two more during that stretch since Fryer has such limited major-league experience.

Cardinals | Still looking for veteran catcher

Fri, 29 Jan 2016 04:55:39 -0800

St. Louis Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak is looking for options behind the plate to complement C Yadier Molina and C Brayan Pena.

Fantasy Tip: Molina may not be ready for Opening Day and Pena is little more than a backup that can be pressed into starting duty for a few weeks. The club needs more help, so monitor who the Cardinals get.

Reds | Brayan Pena tests his injuries

Wed, 16 Sep 2015 20:39:27 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena (hamstring) did some crouching and throwing drills Wednesday, Sept. 16, and he caught a bullpen session from SP Anthony DeSclafani. He might return to the lineup sometime during the upcoming series with the Milwaukee Brewers, manager Bryan Price said.

Fantasy Tip: Pena ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) could return sometime soon, but he is still not a useful FantasyScore option until he proves his health in a full game without any setbacks.

Reds | Brayan Pena to miss time

Wed, 09 Sep 2015 21:39:34 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena (hamstring) left the game Wednesday, Sept. 9, against the Pittsburgh Pirates due to a hamstring injury. He said initial test results were positive, but he will have more tests Thursday, Sept. 10. He might only be out a couple of days.

Fantasy Tip: Pena ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is only worth using in FantasyScore to help save salary to allocate to more valuable positions.

Reds | Brayan Pena batting second vs. Brewers

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:06:26 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena is batting second against Milwaukee Brewers SP Taylor Jungmann Friday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Pena ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) grabs a nice value boost hitting atop the lineup. Still, he you'll want to keep your expectations in check. Pena's on-base percentage (.340) is higher than his slugging percentage (.319), after all. He is nothing more than an endgame lineup filler at FantayScore Friday.

Reds | Brayan Pena out Tuesday

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 11:25:21 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena is not in the starting lineup for the second straight day Tuesday, Aug. 25. C Tucker Barnhart receives the start again and is batting eighth against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Alex Wood.

Fantasy Tip: Barnhart ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has just four home runs in the last two years, so he's a very weak FantasyScore option as your catcher. He also is hitting just .194 (6-for-31) with no homers against lefties this year.

Reds | Tucker Barnhart draws into lineup

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 11:35:28 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Tucker Barnhart is starting and hitting eighth against Detroit Tigers SP Buck Farmer Monday, Aug. 24. C Brayan Pena is taking the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Barnhart ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) typically is a backup catcher to avoid in daily games, but his matchup against Farmer makes him at least worth consideration as a deep sleeper.

Reds | Brayan Pena starting vs. Arizona

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 12:33:18 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena is batting seventh against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa Friday, Aug. 21.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players should view Pena ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) as a potential source of cap relief Friday. He has a .359 on-base percentage against righties, but he also offers limited upside with a measly .347 slugging percentage against them. It is likely wise to aim higher.
