Baltimore Orioles OF Travis Snider is not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz Wednesday, July 29. OF Nolan Reimold will start in left field and is batting seventh in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Snider ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) probably will return to the lineup in the near future. Reimold ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has recorded five hits in his last two games but had only three hits in the 10 games prior. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options to use.

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman is 2-0 with a 3.41 ERA in 31 2/3 innings and has registered a quality start in his last five interleague starts since July of last year. He faces the Atlanta Braves Wednesday, July 29.
Fantasy Tip: Tillman ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) has allowed only five earned runs in his last five starts (32 2/3 innings) dating back to June 28. He's a very attractive second starter on FantasyScore tonight against the offensively challenged Braves.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) has cranked up the power lately, belting five homers with 12 RBIs over his past seven games. He is a great mid-level FantasyScore option due to his power potential.

Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez allowed two earned runs, four hits and three walks over seven innings in a quality start and win Tuesday, July 28, against the Atlanta Braves. He also struck out three batters, improving to 6-1 with a 2.13 ERA in eight home starts this season.
Fantasy Tip: Jimenez ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) is a must-start in FantasyScore whenever he is toeing the slab at Camden Yards. However, avoid him on the road, as he is a dismal 2-5 with a 5.25 ERA in 12 road assignments with the opposition tuning him up at a .297 clip.

Fantasy Tip: Upton ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) would benefit from a move to Orioles Park at Camden Yards, as it allows 0.142 more runs per game than Petco Park in San Diego.
Tue, 28 Jul 2015 14:47:14 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Flaherty ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is useful for some salary cap relief for daily lineups, but he won't provide much else, especially while hitting at the bottom of the lineup. He's hitting just .230 (41-for-178) with four home runs and 22 RBI on the year.
Tue, 28 Jul 2015 14:43:49 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Parmelee ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) hasn't done much with the stick this year, going 20-for-90 (.222) with four home runs and nine RBI. Consider him a weak value pick at FantasyScore.
Tue, 28 Jul 2015 14:37:57 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Machado ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) has excelled as a leadoff hitter this year, going 86-for-282 (.305) with 17 of his 21 home runs. He remains a fine third base option on FantasyScore during his breakout season.
Tue, 28 Jul 2015 13:48:06 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Wieters ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) and Joseph ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) have platooned for the most part since Wieters came back from elbow surgery. This appears to be a normal night off for Wieters. Joseph is a solid FantasyScore option at this price.

Fantasy Tip: Hardy ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is hitting .314 with seven runs scored, a homer and six RBIs during his 10-game run making him a sound investment in FantasyScore.
Mon, 27 Jul 2015 13:26:00 -0700
San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton has been discussed in trade talks with the Baltimore Orioles, according to sources. A potential deal could be expanded to include SPs Andrew Cashner and/or Tyson Ross, too.
Fantasy Tip: Upton ($6,000, 12.0% of cap), strangely enough, has hit better at Petco Park (.297/.354/.558 with 13 home runs) than on the road (.208/.308/.306 with three homers) this year. However, a move to hitter-friendly Camden Yards would do nothing to hurt his fantasy value moving forward. Save your FAAB money if you're in an AL-only league, as many impact players are likely to come over from the National League at the trade deadline.

Fantasy Tip: Reimold ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) went 3-for-3 with two RBI in his last game and is hitting .250 this month but has not recorded any other RBI during that span. Reimold could be a cheaper option for owners looking to spend money at other positions but there likely are better options on FantasyScore.
Mon, 27 Jul 2015 11:35:52 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Hardy ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is hot with the stick right now, but he's facing a left-handed pitcher in Atlanta Braves starter Alex Wood tonight. Hardy is hitting just .203 (15-for-74) with none of his six home runs and only five RBI on the season against southpaws.
Sun, 26 Jul 2015 19:50:59 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Wieters ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has been struggling most of the year, and there is no reason to use him at FantasyScore until he is healthy and hitting.
Sun, 26 Jul 2015 08:11:35 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Reimold ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is capable, but it is a huge leap of faith to utilize him at FantasyScore. He is nothing more than a desperation flier Sunday.
