Sat, 04 Jul 2015 14:06:31 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Holly ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) will be a nice option at that price on FantasyScore upon his return.
Sat, 04 Jul 2015 10:32:00 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Pham ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitless in five career at-bats. He should be avoided in FantasyScore until he proves he can hit at the major league level.
Sat, 04 Jul 2015 10:30:29 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Reynolds ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is just 5-for-38 (.132) over his last 10 games and should be avoided in FantasyScore this afternoon.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 21:19:44 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Heyward ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) hit .326 as part of an excellent month of June, and he has picked up right where he left off. Keep plugging him into your lineup at FantasyScore and enjoy the ride.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 21:16:09 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) has had a few minor setbacks, and although there is some risk with starting any pitcher coming off an injury, taking a chance on Garcia and his 1.69 ERA could pay off.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 13:09:51 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Peter Bourjos ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) projects to grab the majority of starts with Jay and Matt Holliday both out. In the short term, Bourjos has fleeting value in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, and those in need of speed, could take a speculative flier on him in deep mixed leagues, too.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 12:02:30 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Reynolds ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has only 20 hits in 91 at-bats (.220) with 31 strikeouts, two home runs and 13 RBI since June 1. Ross has only allowed three home runs in 95 2/3 innings, too, and he's fanning 9.9 hitters per nine innings in 2015. It's a bad matchup for Reynolds on FantasyScore.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 09:48:48 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cooney was not good in his first start and may only be up for one appearance. Avoid him on FantasyScore for now.

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (groin) is expected to throw a side session in the next two or three days. He had been scheduled to start against the San Diego Padres Thursday, July 2, but has been ruled out due to a strained left groin.
Fantasy Tip: Garcia's ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) injury affects him when he pushes off during his delivery. If all goes well during the side session, he could make a start against the Chicago Cubs next week. However, FantasyScore owners should avoid using him until he demonstrates that he is completely healthy. SP Tim Cooney is expected to be promoted from the minors to start Thursday, July 2, but is not a great FantasyScore option.

Fantasy Tip: This will just be a spot start for Cooney to replace Jaime Garcia (groin), who will be pushed back to sometime early next week. Don't invest anything in Cooney in traditional leagues. At FantasyScore, he'll be very cheap and is intriguing against a Padres squad that is really struggling offensively of late. However, he's still pretty risky and profiles as a deep sleeper for the gambling type.

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (groin) is unlikely to start in the series against the San Diego Padres, but the Cardinals are hopeful that he'll avoid landing on the disabled list. The team expects him to start next week against the Chicago Cubs.
Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) has been great this season in seven starts, sporting a 1.69 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 32 strikeouts in 48 innings. His injury isn't believed to be serious, but a matchup against the Cubs leaves plenty of risk for Garcia after missing a start.
Wed, 01 Jul 2015 08:38:31 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Holly is still a couple of weeks away from a possible return. Keep him stashed on your DL.
Tue, 30 Jun 2015 22:21:41 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Avoid Garcia ($7,100; or 14.2% of cap) in FantasyScore until he can officially make a start and pitch without any setbacks or lingering effects of his injury.
Tue, 30 Jun 2015 21:15:10 -0700
St. Louis Cardinals SP John Lackey is the probable starter for Wednesday, July 1, against the Chicago White Sox. He is 7-1 with a 2.08 ERA in 13 career starts in St. Louis, and he is 5-1 with a 1.91 ERA at home this season.
Fantasy Tip: Lackey ($6,300; or 12.6% of cap) is a solid play in FantasyScore, especially considering he is up against Jose Quintana, who is 2-6 over his past 12 starts, mainly due to a lack of run support.
Tue, 30 Jun 2015 15:24:27 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Grichuk ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has been a modestly priced FantasyScore option that is able to hit for plenty of power as a value play. However, he doesn't stand out as a great play tonight against a tough left-hander. Grichuk is hitting .250 (10-for-40) and has none of his six home runs this year against lefties.
