Diamondbacks | Brad Ziegler hit hard

Fri, 29 May 2015 22:01:11 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks RP Brad Ziegler has allowed three hits, two earned runs and two walks in 1 2/3 innings over his last two appearances, converting one of his two save opportunities.

Fantasy Tip: The closer situation in Arizona is shaky, and Ziegler could lose chances to Addison or Enrique Burgos if he doesn't right the ship. Needless to say, you can't count on any of Arizona's relievers to provide you saves for the long haul.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb a few weeks away

Fri, 29 May 2015 16:08:55 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb (foot) is still around two weeks away from returning to the team, according to manager Chip Hale.

Fantasy Tip: Lamb ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) likely will need to play in some rehab games before returning to the Diamondbacks, so owners should avoid him until he rejoins the team. Yasmany Tomas ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is on an 11-game hitting streak and has at least two hits in eight of those games. Tomas could be a starting option on FantasyScore while he is on a hot streak.

Diamondbacks | Jarrod Saltalamacchia the No. 1 catcher

Fri, 29 May 2015 16:06:23 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Jarrod Saltalamacchia will receive the majority of starts behind the plate, according to manager Chip Hale.

Fantasy Tip: Saltalamacchia went 2-for-29 over nine games with the Miami Marlins earlier this season, and then he posted an uninspiring .188/.222/.375 slash line through nine games with Class AAA Reno. He is a desperation flier in NL-only and two-catcher formats until proven otherwise. In daily contests, "Salty" is nothing more than a low-priced flier.

Diamondbacks | Jarrod Saltalamacchia will play often

Fri, 29 May 2015 15:36:57 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Jarrod Saltalamacchia will receive most of the playing time at catcher with C Tuffy Gosewich (knee) sidelined, according to manager Chip Hale.

Fantasy Tip: Saltalamacchia did not have a lot of success when he played for the Miami Marlins earlier this season and has a .069 batting average. Saltamacchia could be an option in NL-only and two-catcher leagues since he will be a starter, but owners should not expect great stats from him.

Diamondbacks | Tuffy Gosewisch likely out awhile

Fri, 29 May 2015 14:30:03 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Tuffy Gosewisch (knee) said he likely has an anterior cruciate ligament tear in his knee.

Fantasy Tip: If Gosewisch ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is correct, it is likely he'll miss the remainder of the season. Jarrod Saltalamacchia projects to see the majority of starts in the short term, but he has struggled significantly over the past few seasons. Prospect Peter O'Brien is mashing at Class AAA Reno, but he has only played 10 games behind the plate compared to 25 in the outfield. Still, if he were to be recalled to Arizona, there would be huge upside. O'Brien currently has 32 runs, 11 home runs, 45 RBI with a .345/.388/.648 slash line.

Diamondbacks | Jarrod Saltalamacchia in lineup

Fri, 29 May 2015 14:03:32 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is batting sixth and starting behind the plate against the Milwaukee Brewers Friday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: Over his last 123 games, Saltalamacchia is sporting a .209/.310/.351 slash line with 46 runs, 12 home runs and 45 RBI. His 25-home run season in 2012 seems like a distant memory at this point, and fantasy owners should take a wait-and-see approach with "Salty" in the majority of formats. A speculative add in NL-only and two-catcher formats isn't out of the question, but expectations should be kept in check.

Diamondbacks | Mark Trumbo not in lineup Friday

Fri, 29 May 2015 12:27:51 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Mark Trumbo is not in the lineup Friday, May 29, against the Milwaukee Brewers. OF David Peralta is playing left field, with OF Ender Inciarte over to right and OF A.J. Pollock in center.

Fantasy Tip: Trumbo ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) appears to be out just for a night off, so there should be no immediate worries on your roster. Peralta ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has a weak bat and carries little fantasy value.

Diamondbacks | Tuffy Gosewisch to DL

Fri, 29 May 2015 11:15:25 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Tuffy Gosewisch (knee) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday, May 29, with a left knee ACL injury. To fill the roster spot, the Diamondbacks selected the contract of C Jarrod Saltalamacchia.

Fantasy Tip: Gosewisch ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) should be removed from your lineups immediately in FantasyScore, and he should be shelved in keeper leagues. As for Saltalamacchia, he carries little fantasy value. There is a catcher in the organization, Peter O'Brien, who could be called up later this year and he carries much more promise.

Diamondbacks | Jarrod Saltalamacchia coming up?

Thu, 28 May 2015 16:27:06 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is expected to be called up from Class AAA Reno Friday, May 29, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: With Tuffy Gosewisch getting injured last night, Saltalamacchia could split time behind the dish with Jordan Pacheco in the desert. Salty hit just .069 (2-for-29) before being released by the Miami Marlins earlier this year. He's worth considering in deep NL-only leagues if he sees enough playing time, but he should be avoided at FantasyScore, at least to start.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb may start rehab assignment

Wed, 27 May 2015 21:16:58 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb (foot) went 2-for-4 in an extended spring training game Wednesday, May 27, and could start a rehab assignment in the near future. He is expected to serve as a designated hitter in an extended spring training game Thursday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: Lamb ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is making progress in his recovery and could return to the team in the next few weeks. It is not known if he would start when he rejoins the team, so owners may want to see what his role would be before considering him as an option.

Diamondbacks | Tuffy Gosewisch to undergo MRI

Wed, 27 May 2015 20:59:17 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Tuffy Gosewisch (knee) is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his injured knee Thursday, May 28, according to manager Chip Hale.

Fantasy Tip: Gosewisch ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) may have to go on the 15-day disabled list if the injury is more than day-to-day. Jordan Pacheco ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) could receive more playing time but is not a great option on FantasyScore.

Diamondbacks | Tuffy Gosewisch leaves game

Wed, 27 May 2015 20:15:49 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Tuffy Gosewisch (knee) left the game early Wednesday, May 27, because of a left knee injury.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see when Gosewisch ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) will be able to return to the lineup. Gosewisch is hitting only .211 this season and probably is not a great option on FantasyScore when he returns.

Diamondbacks | Nick Ahmed hot

Wed, 27 May 2015 16:46:07 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed is batting .381 in his last 13 games, which is the sixth-best average in the National League over that span of time.

Fantasy Tip: Ahmed ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) could continue to be an under-the-radar sleeper play at FantasyScore tonight against St. Louis Cardinals starter Lance Lynn, but hitting eighth in the batting order limits his upside.

Diamondbacks | Mark Trumbo slots into five-hole

Wed, 27 May 2015 14:43:30 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Mark Trumbo is batting fifth against the St. Louis Cardinals Wednesday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Trumbo ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) is mired in an 8-for-43 run with a .558 OPS over his past 12 games. He also has just one home run and two RBI during the stretch. Until Trumbo picks it up at the dish, he is a high-risk, high-reward option going forward in FantasyScore contests, including Wednesday.

Diamondbacks | Yasmany Tomas batting cleanup

Wed, 27 May 2015 14:37:32 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Yasmany Tomas is batting fourth against the St. Louis Cardinals Wednesday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Tomas ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is riding a 10-game hit streak with three runs, a home run, nine RBI and a .435/.447/.609 slash line. It isn't a plus-matchup against Lance Lynn, but Tomas is scoring hot and a worthy FantasyScore option, especially at his cap-friendly price. He should be owned in all seasonal formats, and his value is rising.
