Orioles | Hyun-soo Kim, Pedro Alvarez out

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 12:45:14 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Hyun-soo Kim and 3B Pedro Alvarez are not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore Friday, June 24. OF Nolan Reimold will start in left field and is batting eighth. OF Mark Trumbo will serve as the designated hitter, while OF Joey Rickard will start in right field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Rickard has 10 hits in his last 10 games and is hitting .344 this month. He should be a sleeper option in daily fantasy leagues because he plays well against left-handed pitchers. Reimold has struggled at the plate over the last few weeks and can be avoided.

Orioles | Ubaldo Jimenez defeats San Diego

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 19:32:48 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez (4-7) allowed two runs on four hits over six innings in a victory over the San Diego Padres Wednesday, June 22, with four walks and seven strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Jimenez had allowed at least five runs in seven of his last eight outings entering play Wednesday but recorded his first quality start since May 7. He is too inconsistent to be viewed as a reliable fantasy option in any format.

Orioles | Baltimore interested in Drew Pomeranz

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 17:15:40 -0700

The Baltimore Orioles have expressed interest in San Diego Padres SP Drew Pomeranz.

Fantasy Tip: Baltimore is searching for a left-handed starter and is considering making a deal for Pomeranz, who is 6-7 with a 3.00 ERA in 14 starts, with 38 walks and 96 strikeouts over 81 innings. A potential trade from a pitcher-friendly environment like Petco Park to a hitter-friendly one like Camden Yards would be detrimental to his fantasy value in deep mixed leagues.

Padres | Travis Jankowski leading off vs. Orioles

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 12:36:31 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Travis Jankowski is starting in center field and leading off against Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez Wednesday, June 22. OF Jon Jay (forearm) is not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Jankowski has a career .616 OPS through 166 plate appearances and checks out as nothing more than a desperation flier in daily contests Wednesday. Jay has been sneaky productive in cavernous mixed and NL-only setups, so check back for updates on his status. He is currently considered day-to-day with the forearm injury.

Orioles | Jonathan Schoop jumps to three-hole

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 12:30:36 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 2B Jonathan Schoop is batting third against San Diego Padres SP Erik Johnson Wednesday, June 22.

Fantasy Tip: Schoop is making noise at the keystone with 34 runs, 12 home runs, 41 RBI and a .280/.310/.486 slash line, and jumping into the three-hole highlights the confidence Baltimore has in him. He should be owned in all seasonal leagues and started with confidence in the majority of them. It's likely just a fleeting swap with Manny Machado suspended, but having Schoop closer to the heart of the lineup is a positive moving forward.

Orioles | Pedro Alvarez homers twice, drives in five

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 21:17:46 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 1B Pedro Alvarez went 3-for-5 with two home runs and five RBI against the San Diego Padres on Tuesday, June 21.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez entered June with a .194-3-11 line in 103 at-bats but has gotten hot of late, going 16-for-47 (.341) with six home runs and 13 RBI this month. He belongs in AL-only lineups as long as he's swinging a hot bat.

Orioles | Matt Wieters on the bench

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 13:26:03 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters is not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres SP Luis Perdomo Tuesday, June 21. C Francisco Pena will start at catcher and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Pena started the month off strong but has only one hit in his last 12 at-bats. Owners in most leagues should be able to find better players to use in their lineups and can avoid Pena.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar sitting vs. Orioles

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 13:56:32 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar is not in the starting lineup against the Baltimore Orioles Monday, June 20.

Fantasy Tip: Profar has now started just one of the past five games, which isn't enough work to maintain fantasy value in the majority of seasonal leagues. However, he's 29-for-83 since being recalled with a .873 OPS. Hold onto Profar for now, and start him when he's in the lineup.

Orioles | Ryan Flaherty sitting vs. Rangers

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 13:45:41 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 3B Ryan Flaherty is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 20. SS Paul Janish is starting at third base and batting ninth against Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Flaherty or Janish will have much fantasy value when Manny Machado's suspension is finished this week. Janish owns a .185/.290/.222 slash line and is nothing more than a desperation start in all fantasy formats Monday.

Orioles | Jonathan Schoop homers again

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 17:04:30 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 2B Jonathan Schoop went 3-for-5 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored in an 11-6 win over the Toronto Blue Jays Sunday, June 19, and he has four home runs in his last nine games.

Fantasy Tip: Schoop is locked in at the plate, so take advantage of him in daily formats as well as season-long leagues.

Orioles | Matt Wieters enjoys banner day

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 15:51:59 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters more than made up for the absence of SS Manny Machado (suspension) on Sunday, June 19, going 4-for-5 with a two-run homer, three runs scored and four RBI in a 11-6 win over the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: Well, that came out of nowhere. Wieters, who was 7-for-42 in June and had scored a total of five runs this month entering play on Sunday, posted his first multi-hit game since May 25 and first four-hit game since Sept. 2, 2013. Wieters is still one of the best fantasy catchers available and needs to be locked into all lineups again next week, although he is just 2-for-18 in his career against Derek Holland, who he will face on Monday when the Orioles visit the Texas Rangers.

Orioles | Ryan Flaherty starting at third

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 09:04:07 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 2B Ryan Flaherty will start at third base against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman Sunday, June 19, because 3B Manny Machado is serving his suspension. Flaherty is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Flaherty has been more productive at the plate recently but is hitting only .219 this season. Owners should be able to find better options for their starting lineups.

Orioles | Manny Machado drops appeal

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 16:23:25 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 3B Manny Machado will drop the appeal of his four-game suspension and begin serving it Sunday, June 19.

Fantasy Tip: He'll be eligible to return Friday against the Tampa Bay Rays. He's enough of a stud to keep in your lineups for that weekend set in weekly leagues. J.J. Hardy will probably see more time in his absence. Hardy has pop despite his poor showing thus far. He's an AL-only start in Machado's absence.

Orioles | Jonathan Schoop continues recent tear

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 15:32:55 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 2B Jonathan Schoop carried his team's offense against the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday, June 18, going 3-for-4 with a solo homer and scoring three times in a 4-2 victory. Schoop has at least one hit in eight of his last nine games, three of which have left the yard.

Fantasy Tip: Schoop had three hits last Sunday as well. He hasn't enjoyed a multi-RBI game since June 1, but that's nitpicking for a second baseman that has 11 home runs and 38 RBI to go along with a .272 average in mid-June. Schoop makes for a fine option in the middle infielder slot of a fantasy lineup in leagues that utilize that position.

Orioles | Matt Wieters, Joey Rickard playing

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 12:03:27 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters and OF Joey Rickard are back in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey Saturday, June 18.

Fantasy Tip: Wieters is hitting just .138 over the past two weeks and should be avoided in daily fantasy contests this afternoon. Rickard is batting .333 (8-for-24) over the past two weeks and is worthy of consideration as a productive source of salary cap relief.
