Fantasy Tip: Owners on FantasyScore should remove any player they have from this game out of their lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to stash Wieters in all fantasy formats as he works his way back from Tommy John surgery, an early May return still appears to be the goal and likely. In the meantime, Caleb Joseph ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) continues to be an upside FantasyScore play and holds fleeting value in deep mixed and AL-only seasonal leagues. Continue to check back for updates on Wieters' recovery progress and for a timeline on his return.

Fantasy Tip: Young ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) drove in five RBI Sunday, April 26, and he is locked in at the plate with a .448 batting average over his last 29 at-bats. It is also worth noting Young is receiving more at-bats against right-handed pitchers of late. He was a solid fantasy contributor in his younger years, and a semi-rebound year isn't out of the question if Young continues to receive consistent at-bats. He could be worth a look in deep mixed leagues, and at his price point and in his current form Young is a nice FantasyScore play.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Pearce in all fantasy formats, and his year-long fantasy stock is plummeting in a hurry, as he isn't receiving enough at-bats. He did go 2-for-5 with three RBI and two runs Sunday, April 26, though. While it might not be time to send him packing yet, you should be searching the waiver wire for potential replacements in the majority of leagues.

Fantasy Tip: De Aza ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is a low-priced target for FantasyScore players due to his lineup spot in front of a number of hot hitters and facing a weak opposing pitcher. However, he is in a 2-for-22 funk, so it isn't a risk-free start.
Mon, 27 Apr 2015 12:43:34 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Snider ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) from your lineups Monday, and it is worth noting he didn't play Sunday, April 26, either. He is currently mired in a 1-for-11 funk, after starting the season with a .325 batting average through his first 40 at-bats.
Mon, 27 Apr 2015 00:49:50 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Davis ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) had been off to a slow start, so this might help him regain some confidence. As long as his salary is lower, it is worth paying to put him in the lineup.
Sun, 26 Apr 2015 08:05:39 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Lavarnway ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has just one hit through 14 plate appearances to begin the season. Lavarnway has hit .210 in 110 career plate appearances against left-handed pitchers, and he shouldn't be considered at all with Wade Miley on the mound for the Red Sox.
Fri, 24 Apr 2015 13:45:55 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Paredes ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has a solid minor league track record, but it isn't anything spectacular, so don't read to much into his 7-for-20 start to the season. Still, he is hitting between the best two hitters on the team, so there is certainly fantasy potential. View Paredes as a nice source of cap relief with upside in FantasyScore contests Friday.

Baltimore Orioles SS J.J. Hardy (shoulder) will not begin a rehab assignment until he is pain-free for a few days, according to manager Buck Showalter. The organization is hopeful Hardy can begin a rehab assignment next week.
Fantasy Tip: Hardy is likely still two weeks away from fantasy contributions in a best-case scenario. He has shown nice pop for a shortstop in the past, but fell to just nine home runs last season after topping 20 in each of the previous three years. Plus, at 32, Hardy's best offensive years are likely in the rear-view mirror. He is worth owning in the majority of seasonal leagues, but expectations should be kept in check. Take a wait-and-see approach with Hardy in FantasyScore contests.

Fantasy Tip: Wieters is working his way back from Tommy John surgery and should continued to be stashed in all fantasy formats. In the meantime, Caleb Joseph ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is an upside FantasyScore play and holds fleeting value in deep mixed and AL-only seasonal leagues. Continue to check back for updates on Wieters' recovery progress and for a timeline on his return.
Fri, 24 Apr 2015 13:30:20 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Pearce ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has now started just one of the last six games, and he is currently sporting a .149 batting average through 52 plate appearances. In the majority of leagues there is no reason to stick with Pearce, as the replacement level at first base and in the outfield is high. FantasyScore players should avoid him until he shows signs of life at the plate, too.
Fri, 24 Apr 2015 13:26:54 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Young ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has been solid in limited playing time to begin the season going 9-for-28 at the dish. However, he has traditionally been a better hitter against left-handed pitching in his career. FantasyScore players should view Young as a cap-relief flier Friday.
Fri, 24 Apr 2015 13:20:02 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Snider from your fantasy lineups Friday. He is off to a nice start (.304 batting average, seven runs and nine RBI) and should be owned in all deep mixed and AL-only leagues. Young ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has been a better hitter against left-handed hurlers during his career, and should be viewed as nothing more than a low-priced flier in FantasyScore contests Friday.
Fri, 24 Apr 2015 13:12:09 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Jumping up the order stands to help Machado's ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) ability to score runs, but it'll slightly hurt his RBI potential. He is coming off a two-homer game, and FantasyScore players should look for him to continue his current offensive surge and extend his three-game hitting streak.
