Twins | Torii Hunter hitting fifth Friday

Fri, 29 May 2015 14:32:16 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Torii Hunter is hitting fifth in the batting order against Toronto Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle Friday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: Hunter ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) continues to hold his own at age 39, going 46-for-164 (.280) with seven home runs and 29 RBI this season. In his career against Buehrle, he's 23-for-93 (.247) with three home runs and 16 RBI. Hunter is hitting an even .300 (18-for-60) with three of his seven homers against lefties this year, too, making him a pretty safe FantasyScore investment tonight.

Twins | Eddie Rosario not in lineup

Fri, 29 May 2015 14:29:51 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Eddie Rosario is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 29. OF Shane Robinson is starting in left field and hitting second in the batting order against Toronto Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle.

Fantasy Tip: Robinson ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has never hit more than three home runs in a major league season, and he doesn't have much speed, either (career-high five stolen bases). That makes him a very uninspiring FantasyScore option, even while hitting in the two-hole for a team that has been very productive at home this year.

Twins | Aaron Hicks ends homer drought

Wed, 27 May 2015 15:55:25 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Aaron Hicks hit a two-run home run in a winning effort Wednesday, May 27, for his first home run in 171 at-bats since April of last season. He finished the game 1-for-2 with two runs, two RBI and a walk to raise his average to .240.

Fantasy Tip: Hicks ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) hasn't done much offensively since returning to Minnesota, but perhaps his biggest contribution has been drastically improving the team's outfield defense in center field. If he can improve his offense, he may hold off Byron Buxton just a little longer.

Twins | Kurt Suzuki sitting vs. Boston

Wed, 27 May 2015 08:17:55 -0700

Minnesota Twins C Kurt Suzuki is not in the starting lineup against the Boston Red Sox Wednesday, May 27. C Chris Hermann is batting seventh and starting behind the plate Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Suzuki ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) from your lineups Wednesday. Over his past 14 games, Suzuki has six runs, three RBI and a .280/.351/.400 slash line. He should continued to be viewed as a low-end catching option in the majority of formats. Hermann is nothing more than a desperation flier in daily contests.

Twins | Ervin Santana throws batting practice

Mon, 25 May 2015 19:55:44 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana threw 42 pitches in a live batting practice session Sunday, May 24, as he prepares to return from an 80-game suspension in early July.

Fantasy Tip: Santana will likely crack the rotation at some point, but he is still a couple of months away from having any use at FantasyScore.

Twins | Eduardo Nunez will be DH

Mon, 25 May 2015 10:11:26 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Eduardo Nunez will serve as the designated hitter for the Twins Monday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Nunez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has not seen much playing time lately and has only one hit in five at-bats this month. Owners probably should avoid using Nunez in their starting lineups.

Twins | Danny Santana out again

Mon, 25 May 2015 10:00:20 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Danny Santana is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 25. INF Eduardo Escobar will be the starting shortstop for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is receiving another day off but should return to the lineup soon. Escobar ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has a .279 batting average this month, but owners should be able to find better options to use.

Twins | Eddie Rosario driving in runs

Mon, 25 May 2015 01:48:45 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Eddie Rosario has eight runs batted in despite playing in just 13 games and 40 at-bats in the major leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Rosario ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is definitely hitting, but it's hard to read the Twins. They tend to send down players who are hitting and keep around the ones that aren't. Still, it doesn't look like Rosario is going anywhere, and as long as he's driving in runs he should be safe as a low-cost outfielder.

Twins | Byron Buxton triples way to success

Sun, 24 May 2015 15:39:40 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Byron Buxton has 11 triples on the season and nine in May alone. It is part of a season that has Buxton hitting .267 with five doubles, five home runs and 33 RBIs at Class AA Chattanooga.

Fantasy Tip: Buxton, the Twins' top prospect, could be in line for a callup later this year if this keeps up. If you can secure his services now in a deeper league where prospects are allowed, pick him up.

Twins | Shane Robinson starting in LF

Sun, 24 May 2015 10:40:11 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Shane Robinson will be the starting left fielder against the Chicago White Sox Sunday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: Robinson ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has struggled in his limited playing time in May and is hitting .179 during the month. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options to use in their lineups.

Twins | Danny Santana on the bench

Sun, 24 May 2015 10:36:00 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Danny Santana is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) probably will return to the lineup in the next day or two. Eduardo Escobar ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will be the starting shortstop and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore since he is hitting .298 this month.

Twins | Kurt Suzuki will not start

Sun, 24 May 2015 10:28:35 -0700

Minnesota Twins C Kurt Suzuki is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 24. C Chris Herrmann will be the starting catcher for the team.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return in the next day or two. Herrmann ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has not has much success at the plate this season and is not a great option on FantasyScore.

Twins | Personal best for Trevor May

Sat, 23 May 2015 17:55:38 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Trevor May allowed three runs on six hits while striking out nine in a career-high seven innings in a win over the Chicago White Sox Saturday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: The nine strikeouts were his most in a game this season, but overall, May ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) hasn't showed the game-to-game consistency to be considered anything more than a risky matchup play at FantasyScore.

Twins | Jordan Schafer will not need surgery

Fri, 22 May 2015 23:59:45 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Jordan Schafer (knee) got a second opinion on his right knee from Dr. James Andrews, who confirmed Schafer will not need surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Schafer ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is on the disabled list until the end of May, and it could be a little longer even though the injury is a mild sprain of his medial collateral ligament. Keep an eye on his progress.

Twins | Oswaldo Arcia starting rehab assignment

Fri, 22 May 2015 14:35:39 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Oswaldo Arcia (hip) is slated to start a rehab assignment with Class AAA Rochester Sunday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: Arcia ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) was hitting .276 (16-for-58) with two home runs and eight RBI before his injury, and he's likely the team's best option in left field when he returns. However, he's merely a matchup play for FantasyScore users.
