Arizona Diamondbacks news, rumors and injuries
Fri, 24 Apr 2015 13:41:18 -0700
Arizona Diamondbacks 3B/OF Yasmany Tomas is starting at third base and hitting fifth in the batting order against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole Friday, April 24. 2B Aaron Hill is sitting the bench tonight.
Fantasy Tip: Tomas ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has epic power abilities, but his inconsistent playing time makes him hard to rely on at FantasyScore. The matchup against Cole isn't endearing to daily gamers, either.

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Ender Inciarte is starting in left field and hitting leadoff against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole Friday, April 24. OF David Peralta is the odd-man out in the outfield and is sitting the bench.
Fantasy Tip: Inciarte ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has been a spark plug at the top of the Snakes lineup early this season, and he's often times been an excellent value play at FantasyScore with such a cheap salary. Tonight may not be one of those nights, though, as he's facing one of the better all-around pitchers in the league.

Fantasy Tip: O'Brien is one of the team's top minor league prospects. The way he's swinging the bat, he may be due for a call-up soon, especially with Tuffy Gosewisch and Jordan Pacheco not cutting it at the plate. NL-only managers need to have O'Brien on their radar now.

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B/OF Yasmany Tomas is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 22, a day after making his starting debut at the hot corner. 2B Aaron Hill is starting at third base and hitting fifth in the batting order against Texas Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo.
Fantasy Tip: Tomas had two hits in his starting debut Wednesday night, but his fantasy owners in seasonal leagues will be frustrated by his inconsistent playing time in Arizona. Hill ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is off to a slow start (.171, 6-for-35) and only has three hits in 18 at-bats against Gallardo. Look elsewhere for your FantasyScore second baseman.

Fantasy Tip: Ender Inciarte ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) will start in left field and hit leadoff Wednesday night. It's hard to find a more alluring outfield value at FantasyScore in a hitter's park against a midrange starting pitcher. The fact that Inciarte is leading also boosts his daily value.
Wed, 22 Apr 2015 13:50:00 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Inciarte ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has effectively become the team's fourth outfielder. He has shined in 2015 so far, hitting .321 (17-for-53) with six RBI. Inciarte hit all four of his home runs in 2014 off of righties, and he's a great value play at his cheap FantasyScore price against Gallardo tonight.

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Ender Inciarte will sit out Tuesday, April 21, against the Texas Rangers. The Diamondbacks continue to rotate their outfielders and will start OFs A.J. Pollock, Mark Trumbo and David Peralta Tuesday.
Fantasy Tip: Trumbo ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) and Pollock ($3,300, 6.6% of leagues) are both worth owning, while Peralta and Inciarte typically work different sides of a platoon. Inciarte is worth using against left-handed starters, while Peralta is the go-to against righties on FantasyScore.

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B/OF Yasmany Tomas will start at third base Tuesday, April 21, against the Texas Rangers. Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said earlier in the day, Tomas would get occasional starts at third, with 3B Jake Lamb (foot) expected to miss another two-to-three weeks.
Fantasy Tip: Tomas ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has recorded one single in four major league plate appearances to begin his MLB career and will be hitting sixth in the order Tuesday, behind LF David Peralta and ahead of C Tuffy Gosewisch. Tomas will be an option in GPP tournaments, with left-hander Nick Martinez starting for the Rangers.

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb (foot) may not return for two-to-three more weeks, according to manager Chip Hale, Tuesday, April 21. 2B Aaron Hill will continue to receive the majority of the starts at the hot corner, while Hale said prospect 3B Yasmany Tomas could see occasional time at third.
Fantasy Tip: Hill ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has just six hits in 37 plate appearances to begin the 2015 season, and has been on a pretty steady decline offensively, since 2012. Tomas ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has one hit in his first four major league plate appearances, but isn't worth owning with the exception of a deep stash in keeper leagues.
Tue, 21 Apr 2015 15:30:47 -0700
Arizona Diamondbacks prospect 3B Yasmany Tomas' future will be as an outfielder, according to manager Chip Hale, Tuesday, April 21. Hale also said Tomas will receive some time at third base with 3B Jake Lamb (foot) still out of the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Tomas ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has one hit in four major league plate appearances since being re-called from Class-AAA, while serving as a bench player. Tomas is an appealing stash option in keeper leagues, but isn't yet worthy of a start in FantasyScore contests.
Tue, 21 Apr 2015 13:58:07 -0700
Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb (foot) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left foot stress reaction Tuesday, April 21. The D-backs recalled INF Danny Dorn from Triple-A Reno in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Lamb should be stashed in a DL slot in all fantasy baseball leagues. Yasmany Tomas ($2,500, 5.0% of cap), who was initially called up to be a bat off the bench, will now see his fantasy value rise significantly with consistent playing time. Tomas is starting at third base Tuesday night, and he has considerable upside at his price.

Fantasy Tip: Tomas was recalled from Class AAA Reno Wednesday, April 15, but went 0-for-3 in his first three appearances as a pinch-hitter. Tomas won't be worthy of consideration until he locks down a regular roster spot, but he does have considerable upside in keeper/dynasty leagues.

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Josh Collmenter threw a complete game shutout against the San Francisco Giants Friday, April 17. Collmenter allowed four hits over the nine innings with two strike outs and one walk.
Fantasy Tip: Collmenter ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) struggled in his first two starts of the season but had a great outing against the Giants. Collmenter is scheduled to face the Pittsburgh Pirates in his next start and could be a risky option on FantasyScore.
Fri, 17 Apr 2015 16:08:53 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Peralta ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has only two hits over his last five games. Peralta may not be the best option for owners on FantasyScore.
Fri, 17 Apr 2015 15:58:50 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Trumbo ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) likely is just receiving a day off and will return to the lineup Saturday, April 18. David Peralta ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is taking his place in the lineup but may not be the best option for owners on FantasyScore.
