Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb back in lineup

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 12:19:18 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb is in the lineup Sunday, June 26, against Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis and will bat fourth. OF Rickie Weeks will start in place of Peter O'Brien in left and hit fifth, while C Chris Herrmann will be behind the plate in place of C Welington Castillo and bat sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Lamb plays primarily against right-handers and has been mashing them for the better part of the season, hitting .310 with 12 homers and 39 RBI in 197 at-bats, although he is only 1-for-12 in his career against Bettis. Weeks is 2-for-2 versus the Rockies' right-hander, but he's a risky bet in any format. Herrmann has been exceptional whenever he's received a chance to play this year and makes for a solid DFS play today as well as a great fill-in for any starting fantasy catcher around the league that is getting the day off.

Diamondbacks | Several ARI regulars return Saturday

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 10:47:31 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Yasmany Tomas, C Welington Castillo and SS Nick Ahmed (hip) are back in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa Saturday, June 25. In addition, INF/OF Brandon Drury will play third base and bat seventh, while 3B Jake Lamb receives the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Tomas has six home runs and 12 RBI during the month of June, including three homers in the past week, making him a viable outfield option in all formats. Castillo, Ahmed and Drury have been mediocre at the plate recently and should not be viewed as great fantasy options this afternoon.

Diamondbacks | Brad Ziegler earns another save

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 05:20:44 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks RP Brad Ziegler pitched a scoreless ninth inning against the Colorado Rockies Friday, June 24, to pick up his 16th save of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Ziegler has been pitching well over the last few weeks and had dropped his ERA to 2.43. He should continue to be Arizona's closer and is still a solid starting option in most fantasy leagues.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb drives in three

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 05:11:41 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb went 3-for-4 with three RBI against the Colorado Rockies Friday, June 24.

Fantasy Tip: Lamb continued is terrific production at the plate Friday and is hitting .293 with seven home runs and 22 RBI this month. He has become one of the better third baseman in fantasy and should be used in all leagues.

Diamondbacks | Yasmany Tomas homers twice

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 05:11:03 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Yasmany Tomas went 3-for-5 with two home runs and four RBI against the Colorado Rockies Friday, June 24.

Fantasy Tip: Tomas has picked up at least one hit in six of his last seven games and has nine RBI during that span. He has posted solid numbers so far this season and should be a solid starting candidate in most leagues.

Diamondbacks | Nick Ahmed has minor hip injury

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 17:41:03 -0700

Updating a previous report, Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed (hip) is not in the starting lineup versus the Colorado Rockies Friday, June 24, because of "hip issues," according to manager Chip Hale. He is expected to return to the lineup Saturday, June 25.

Fantasy Tip: Ahmed is batting just .211 with four home runs and 19 RBI through 71 games and is known more for his glove than his bat. When healthy, he should be viewed as nothing more than an inexpensive flier in DFS and a low-end starting option in NL-only fantasy leagues.

Diamondbacks | Arizona resting two players

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 15:19:35 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo and SS Nick Ahmed are not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Anderson Friday, June 24. 2B Jean Segura will start at shortstop, while 2B Phil Gosselin will start at second base and is batting fourth. C Chris Herrmann will start at catcher and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Gosselin has been producing at the plate recently and has a .353 batting average and one RBI over the last seven days. He could be a sleeper option in some daily fantasy leagues. Herrmann is hitting .276 in June and should be a starting option in two-catcher leagues and some daily leagues.

Diamondbacks | Socrates Brito lands on DL

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 10:52:24 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Socrates Brito (toe) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday, June 24, with a fractured toe on his right foot. OF Brandon Drury was recalled from Class AAA Reno.

Fantasy Tip: Michael Bourn is likely to see most of the time in center now that Brito is out. Tough break for Brito, too, because he homered last night. Drury will be a low-end DFS flyer when he's in the lineup.

Diamondbacks | Brad Ziegler's streak ends

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 23:15:38 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks RP Brad Ziegler blew his first save Thursday, June 23, after converting 43 consecutive opportunities dating back to May 29, 2015. He didn't allow an earned run, but he allowed a hit and a walk while fanning two in 1 2/3 innings and recorded the win.

Fantasy Tip: Ziegler doesn't have electric numbers, but he has struck out six in 4 2/3 innings the last week. His lack of K's and 1.36 WHIP are what keep him relegated to a second reliever in fantasy.

Diamondbacks | Socrates Brito starting vs. Rockies

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 14:12:30 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Socrates Brito is starting in center field and batting ninth against Colorado Rockies SP Eddie Butler Thursday, June 23. OF Michael Bourn is not in the starting lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Brito has just 68 plate appearances in the majors, but this is a potential spot to role with him in daily contests, as the game is at hitter-friendly Coors Field. He is nothing more than a depth option in cavernous mixed and NL-only setups. Bourn is flaming out with an active 13-for-75 run at the plate, and his playing time could dwindle if Brito plays well.

Diamondbacks | Yasmany Tomas hitting second

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 14:08:40 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Yasmany Tomas is batting second against Colorado Rockies SP Eddie Butler Thursday, June 23.

Fantasy Tip: Tomas receives a boost with the lineup promotion, but the game is also at Coors Field, so he becomes an even better play in daily contests Thursday. For the campaign, Tomas has 33 runs, 10 home runs, 25 RBI and a .257/.308/.455 slash line and is worth starting in deep mixed and NL-only leagues.

Diamondbacks | Robbie Ray tagged with loss

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 19:03:35 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray (4-6) allowed four runs on four hits over 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Toronto Blue Jays Wednesday, June 22, with two walks and eight strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Although he didn't have his best stuff Wednesday, Ray is still a viable back-of-the-rotation option in seasonal fantasy leagues because he is averaging more than a strikeout per inning this year. He has a favorable matchup in his next outing versus the Philadelphia Phillies Monday, June 27.

Diamondbacks | Rickie Weeks hitting cleanup

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 10:05:41 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Rickie Weeks is batting fourth as the designated hitter against Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ Wednesday, June 22.

Fantasy Tip: With a .935 OPS against left-handed hurlers this season, Weeks is a viable low-priced flier in daily contests Wednesday. He isn't receiving enough playing time to be anything more than a depth option in cavernous mixed and NL-only seasonal leagues.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb sitting vs. Toronto

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 09:57:15 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 22. INF Phil Gosselin is starting at third base and batting second against Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Lamb has been seeing more time against left-handed hurlers lately, but draws out Wednesday. He is putting together a great season, though, and his 34 runs, 14 home runs, 45 RBI and .278/.361/.556 slash line plays in the majority of seasonal leagues. Gosselin owns a career .731 OPS against southpaws and checks out as a viable flier in daily contests Wednesday.

Diamondbacks | Patrick Corbin solid on road

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 05:01:55 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin picked up his fourth win of the season Tuesday, June 21, in a 4-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. Corbin is now 4-6 overall and 4-1 on the road.

Fantasy Tip: This is where it pays to analyze fantasy matchups. Starting Corbin in Phoenix is not recommended because he hasn't won at Chase Field. However, starts on the road have been much kinder. Corbin is recommended as a starter but only if the Diamondbacks are the road team.
