Mets | Rene Rivera catching Saturday

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 10:16:33 -0700

New York Mets C Rene Rivera will start behind the plate and bat eighth against San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain Saturday, April 30.

Fantasy Tip: Rivera is starting instead of C Kevin Plawecki because the club is playing a day game following a night game. He should be viewed as nothing more than an inexpensive flier in daily fantasy contests.

Mets | Travis d'Arnaud placed on DL

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 11:28:45 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right rotator cuff strain Tuesday, April 26, and the Mets purchased the contract of C Rene Rivera from Class AAA Las Vegas in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: A slow start (.196/.288/.261 with no home runs) just got even worse for d'Arnaud. This could be an injury that could require surgery and keep him out for an extended timeline, too, so stay tuned for updates. If you don't have the room to stash in shallow mixed leagues, you may be forced to drop him. Kevin Plawecki should see the majority of starts behind the plate but is nothing more than a second catcher in two-backstop leagues.

Mets | Travis d'Arnaud set for shoulder exam

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 22:00:43 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud (shoulder) left the game Monday, April 25, against the Cincinnati Reds due to shoulder soreness. If he needs a stint on the 15-day disabled list, C Kevin Plawecki would be the regular backstop with C Rene Rivera coming up from Class AAA Las Vegas to serve as the backup.

Fantasy Tip: D'Arnaud should be avoided in all NL-only fantasy leagues and DFS play until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks.

Rays | Rene Rivera catching Saturday

Sat, 03 Oct 2015 11:53:25 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C Rene Rivera will bat ninth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marco Estrada Saturday, Oct. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Rivera ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is batting just .162 with two RBIs in 74 at-bats since the All-Star break and is 4-for-38 against Toronto this season. FantasyScore owners should avoid using him Saturday.

Rays | J.P. Arencibia sitting out series finale

Wed, 16 Sep 2015 13:16:36 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C J.P. Arencibia is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 16. C Rene Rivera is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against New York Yankees SP Luis Severino Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Arencibia ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has exploded onto the scene in September for the Rays. He has a 1.142 OPS with five home runs and 15 RBI through 46 plate appearances. Still, he is nothing more than a flier for seasonal players, albeit one that could pay off down the stretch in the power categories. Rivera ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has an active 4-for-29 stretch and is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief for FantasyScore players Wednesday.

Rays | Rene Rivera receives start

Sun, 06 Sep 2015 07:07:54 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C Rene Rivera will start at catcher against New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova Sunday, Sept. 6, and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Rivera ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has been out of the lineup for the last several games but has received at-bats during those games. He is hitting .181 this season and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Rays | Rene Rivera will not start

Sat, 05 Sep 2015 07:51:53 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C Rene Rivera is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi Saturday, Sept. 5. C Luke Maile will start at catcher and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Rivera ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has not been in the lineup for a few games but could return soon. Maile was a September call up and does not have much fantasy value at this point.

Rays | Rene Rivera out of the lineup

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 14:39:11 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C Rene Rivera is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone Thursday, Aug. 27. C J.P. Arencibia will start at catcher and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Rivera ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return soon. Arencibia recently joined the team but should not be a fantasy option at this time.

Rays | Rene Rivera grabs start vs. Twins

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 13:46:26 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C Rene Rivera is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against Minnesota Twins SP Tyler Duffey Wednesday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: With Curt Casali ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) on the disabled list, Rivera ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) and J.P. Arencibia will likely split starts behind the plate. FantasyScore players could take a speculative swing with Rivera Wednesday, but he is truly nothing more than a dice roll due to his .510 OPS over 289 at-bats this year. Arencibia owns power potential, but he also comes with a .231 on-base percentage over his past 201 games in the majors. Arencibia is a desperation add in AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, if your hunting for home runs.

Rays | Rene Rivera catching Sunday

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 12:53:54 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C Rene Rivera will bat ninth against Oakland Athletics SP Kendall Graveman Sunday, Aug. 23. C Curt Casali will receive a scheduled day off.

Fantasy Tip: Rivera ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is 8-for-23 (.348) during the month of August with a double and an RBI, and merits consideration for FantasyScore lineups that need a productive catcher at a low cost.
