Fantasy Tip: Mercer's defense keeps him in the lineup, so playing through injury should further hinder his offensive production. You should be able to do better in the majority of leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Return Mercer to your lineups in NL-only leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez's at-bats are likely to take a significant hit. He could prove to be unworthy of a roster spot in the majority of formats. If you have the luxury to be patient in deep mixed leagues, see how Hurdle handles Alvarez's playing time before you cut ties.
Tue, 19 Aug 2014 12:54:42 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Remove Alvarez from your daily lineups. Scouting for alternatives is advised in the majority of formats. Alvarez's playing time could continue to dwindle.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez is getting his first start at first base and likely will be spending more time at the position next season. He is still considered a third baseman in most fantasy leagues and has not hit a home run in about a month, which makes him a risky play.
Mon, 18 Aug 2014 12:51:53 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation to see if McCuthen is ready to come off the disabled list or still needs a few more days to recover. When he does come off the disabled list, he should return to the lineup in all fantasy leagues.
