Diamondbacks | Yasmany Tomas hitting second

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 09:52:03 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Yasmany Tomas will start in right field and hit second in the order Sunday, Aug. 2, against the Houston Astros and RHP Collin McHugh. OF A.J. Pollock comes out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Tomas ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) was 4-for-9 in two games before going 0-for-3 Saturday. Tomas doesn't draw many walks, but he has been hitting well of late, and he'll be a FantasyScore option with moderate upside.

Diamondbacks | Yasmany Tomas hitting sixth

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 13:17:44 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Yasmany Tomas will start in right field and hit sixth in the order Saturday, Aug. 1, against the Houston Astros and LHP Dallas Keuchel.

Fantasy Tip: Tomas ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) is 4-for-9 in his last two games, with a double, a run scored and two RBI. While Tomas doesn't offer any cap relief, and he carries some risk on FantasyScore, he's a quality option while he's hot.

Diamondbacks | Jarrod Saltalamacchia starting at catcher

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 13:12:50 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Jarrod Saltalamacchia will start behind the plate and hit seventh in the order Saturday, Aug. 1, against the Houston Astros and LHP Dallas Keuchel. C Welington Castillo will serve as the designated hitter and hit fourth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is 6-for-15 in his last three games with four home runs. He'll be a strong FantasyScore option while not having to worry about the defensive side of the game.

Diamondbacks | Aaron Hill starting Saturday

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 13:08:36 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Aaron Hill will start at third base and hit fifth in the lineup Saturday, Aug. 1, against the Houston Astros and LHP Dallas Keuchel. 3B Jake Lamb comes out of the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Hill ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is hitting just .239 against lefties this season with just a single home run. FantasyScore owners should be looking elsewhere.

Diamondbacks | Nick Ahmed hitting second

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 13:07:14 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed is hitting second in the order Saturday, Aug. 1, against the Houston Astros and LHP Dallas Keuchel. OF A.J. Pollock (knee) is out of the lineup, so SS Cliff Pennington will start in left field and hit ninth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Ahmed ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is hitting .338 against left-handed pitching this season with eight walks and eight strikeouts. Ahmed is just 2-for-his-last-28, and he can be avoided against one of the league's top lefties. Pennington ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has three singles in 14 plate appearances against lefties this season, but he'll have next to no upside while at the bottom of the lineup.

Diamondbacks | A.J. Pollock leaves game

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 04:52:34 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF A.J. Pollock (knee) was removed from the Friday, July 31, game against the Houston Astros due to tightness behind his left knee. He is expected to miss the Saturday, Aug. 1, contest.

Fantasy Tip: Pollock ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) was removed for precautionary reasons, according to manager Chip Hale, so it sounds like this is nothing special to worry about. He could be back later in the weekend, so keep an eye on his progress.

Diamondbacks | Welington Castillo on hot streak

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 04:43:37 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo had a 10th inning homer Friday, July 31, as his team scored a 6-4 win over the Houston Astros. Castillo now has three home runs in his last two games.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Castillo ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has recovered from a slow start to the point where he has pretty high upside in FantasyScore. He has made some recent adjustments at the plate and they do bear watching.

Diamondbacks | Arizona out of Aroldis Chapman stakes

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 11:59:40 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Reds RP Aroldis Chapman is no longer an option for the Arizona Diamondbacks, as trade negotiations have broken down between the two teams, according to the Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Chapman will remain a high-end closer with the Reds or any other team. Though, a trade to a contender could boost his opportunities. The Houston Astros have been linked to Chapman, which projects to be an upgrade for him. Stay tuned.

Diamondbacks | Arizona willing to trade Braden Shipley

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 10:30:49 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Braden Shipley would be available in a package to acquire Cincinnati Reds RP Aroldis Chapman. The Diamondbacks are also willing to include one or two more of their top 10 prospects to land Chapman.

Fantasy Tip: It shows that the D-backs are very serious about trading for Chapman, who would remain an elite fantasy closer. Brad Ziegler would lose all of his fantasy value with a return to a setup role. Shipley is 8-8 with a 3.97 ERA and 1.41 WHIP at Class AA Mobile this year, so he's unlikely to be a fantasy factor for teams until at least next season.

Diamondbacks | Arizona a long shot for Aroldis Chapman

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 07:54:32 -0700

The Cincinnati Reds have better offers for RP Aroldis Chapman, and the Arizona Diamondbacks are now considered long shots to land him.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like there's a good chance Chapman will stay with the Reds, but stay tuned. His fantasy value as an elite closer will not change if he's traded. In fact, it may be boosted if he lands with a contender. Stash J.J. Hoover, the man expected to take over in the ninth, if you're looking for saves avenues.

Diamondbacks | Welington Castillo making changes

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 15:20:47 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo has been working on his approach and it paid off with two home runs Wednesday, July 29, against the Seattle Mariners. "I'm thinking middle all the way and looking for my pitch and not trying to miss," Castillo said. "I'm putting my best swing on it and seeing what happens," said Castillo.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has been benefiting from additional at-bats, and he went 3-for-9 with three home runs in the first two games of the series against his former team. Castillo has eight home runs since joining the D-Backs, and he's a high upside option that can be used in GPP tournaments on FantasyScore.

Diamondbacks | Rubby De La Rosa back in action

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 22:51:03 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa is scheduled to start Thursday, June 30, against the Houston Astros. He has allowed just one earned run over the past 15 innings.

Fantasy Tip: De La Rosa ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has posted good results over the past couple of outings, and he should rack up big strikeout totals against the Astros, who strike out more than anyone in the American League.

Diamondbacks | Welington Castillo back with bang

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 22:50:34 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Welington Castillo (elbow) had a pair of home runs with three RBIs in his return to the lineup Wednesday, July 29, against the Seattle Mariners.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo's ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) performance was impressive enough, but his homers came off of Felix Hernandez which is even more impressive.

Diamondbacks | Nick Ahmed sitting out

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 11:26:54 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 29. SS Cliff Pennington is starting at the 6 and hitting ninth against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez.

Fantasy Tip: Pennington ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be ignored in all daily contests.

Diamondbacks | Yasmany Tomas the DH

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 11:23:05 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Yasmany Tomas is serving as the designated hitter and is batting seventh against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez Wednesday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: Tomas ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has been struggling at the plate a bit in July, going 18-for-75 (.240) with 26 strikeouts and two home runs. It's unlikely that he'll get back on track today against King Felix and the M's. Tomas is a risky daily play.
