Fantasy Tip: A move to the leadoff spot has agreed with Jones, and he's hitting .310 with 11 bombs and 26 RBI in the month of June. Combine that with his comfort in San Diego against a lefty today and you have a great option for fantasy lineups. Click on him with confidence.

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters and OF Hyun-Soo Kim are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 29. C Francisco Pena is behind the dish and is hitting seventh, while OF Joey Rickard starts in left field and is batting eighth against San Diego Padres SP Christian Friedrich.
Fantasy Tip: With a lefty on the hill, Wieters and Kim are both given a day off. Pena is hitting only .214 in limited time this year and should be avoided everywhere. Rickard has faded considerably after a strong spring, and he doesn't possess much thump with the lumber. He's a low-end DFS pick today.

Fantasy Tip: Like many of the O's, Machado is locked in at the plate and has now hit safely in eight consecutive games. His numbers in that stretch: 19-for-36 (.528), 1 HR, 5 RBI and 8 runs scored. If he's on your team, sit back and enjoy the benefits.

Fantasy Tip: Schoop has been, dare I say, a mighty good man of late. During his current 10-game hitting streak, Schoop is 21-for-43 (.488) with three home runs, eight RBI and a whopping 15 runs scored. He's no threat to run, but don't let that dissuade you from plugging him into your everyday lineup for the time being.

Fantasy Tip: Jimenez vs. the Padres: 2-0, 2.45 ERA, 1.36 WHIP, 12 K's in 11 IP. Jimenez vs. the rest of baseball: 3-7, 7.34 ERA, 2.00 WHIP, 57 K's in 65 IP. Unless the Orioles can successfully petition MLB to allow Jimenez to exclusively face the Padres going forward, the veteran is of no interest to anyone besides desperate AL-only owners.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has been on a tear for most of this month, hitting .315 with 10 home runs and 25 RBI to go along with 25 runs scored after batting .234 and totaling five homers, 23 RBI and 21 runs through the end of May. Like almost every other notable Baltimore hitter at the moment, he's a must-start in fantasy.

Fantasy Tip: Trumbo, who also ranks third in the AL with 55 RBI, has scored 43 runs and is batting .279, providing exceptional four-category production. In a favorable ballpark for hitting home runs like Camden Yards and in such a stacked lineup, Trumbo is well-positioned to blow right past his previous career highs of 34 homers and 100 RBI. Every day he's in the Orioles' lineup, he needs to be in yours.

Fantasy Tip: His seven grand slams since 2011 are the most in the majors over that time. Davis has homered in back-to-back contests after failing to leave the yard in his previous 11. Still, he's enjoying his finest month of the season so far, batting .280 with eight home runs and 22 RBI to go along with 22 runs scored. Davis is obviously elite option in the power categories and needs to remain in lineups, even if the Orioles travel to Petco Park for the first of two games against the San Diego Padres beginning on Tuesday.
Sun, 26 Jun 2016 08:59:01 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Pena is 6-for-25 with a home run and three RBI this season but is just 1-for-10 with five strikeouts over the past two weeks. Better catching options should be available in DFS for a similar price.
Sun, 26 Jun 2016 07:45:55 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Schoop has emerged as four-category machine for fantasy owners this season with 38 runs, 12 home runs, 42 RBI and a .287/.317/.489 slash line. Take the hit in stolen bases and view Schoop as strong starter in all fantasy leagues. Rememer, Schoop started slow, too. He's done most of the damage over the past 55 games with 34 runs, nine home runs, 34 RBI and a .859 OPS.
Sat, 25 Jun 2016 21:30:49 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Schoop has three hits in the doubleheader, and he is hitting .455 (15-for-33) over his past eight games with two homers and five RBIs. He is a must-start in all AL-only fantasy leagues, deeper mixed formats and DFS play while running hot.
Sat, 25 Jun 2016 21:30:20 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Jones stumbled out of the gate and had been putting up mediocre numbers until June. However, he is making up for lost time, posting 10 homers with 23 RBIs in 24 games in June. He remains a must-start in all fantasy leagues, raising his average from .234 to .254 this month.
Sat, 25 Jun 2016 21:29:50 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Wieters has managed nine RBIs over his past six games, and he has driven in 20 runs in 19 games in the month of June. He has re-emerged as a must-start across all fantasy formats and DFS play.

Baltimore Orioles SP Vance Worley (groin) allowed one run and five hits over 1 2/3 innings in a minor-league rehab outing for Class AA Bowie Saturday, June 25. It was his first rehab appearance since going on the 15-day disabled list June 14.
Fantasy Tip: Worley is likely to return to a long relief role when healthy. He is only worth a look in the deepest of AL-only rotisserie formats for help in the ERA and WHIP categories.
Sat, 25 Jun 2016 21:28:51 -0700
Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman allowed six runs and 10 hits over five innings in a no-decision in Game 2 of a doubleheader Saturday, June 25, against the Tampa Bay Rays. He walked two batters and struck out two, throwing 64 of his 95 pitches for strikes.
Fantasy Tip: Tillman had his worst outing of the season, but he is still 10-1 with a 3.52 ERA and 1.21 WHIP. Tillman remains a tremendous fantasy option across the board and in DFS play, especially due to his 88 strikeouts over 94 2/3 innings.
