3 years agoThe Pirates are in Boston to start the season, which will give them the chance to put Gregory Polanco at designated hitter. He has been bothered by left shoulder discomfort, which has affected his throwing. It shouldn't affect his availability early in the season, but the club is playing it safe early on and taking advantage of the American League rules. Polanco is batting cleanup on Monday, sandwiched between Andrew McCutchen and David Freese. Deploy him as usual in all leagues.--Pierre Camus - RotoBallerSource: Adam Berry

3 years agoThe Twins will kick the 2017 season off by sending Ervin Santana to the mound to take on the Kansas City Royals at home. Santana was Minnesota's most consistent pitcher last season and should serve as a solid innings-eater again this year. While he doesn't have elite upside, Santana is worth considering as a two-start streamer this week. Kansas City's offense struggled against right-handed pitching last season, ranking 28th in the league in wOBA and last in ISO, giving Santana a good shot at turning in a useful fantasy performance.--Matt Terelle - RotoBallerSource: fangraphs.com

3 years agoScott Feldman is slated to take the mound in Cincinnati's home opener against the Philadelphia Phillies today. Feldman has made two Opening Day starts in his career, so when both Anthony DeSclafani and Homer Bailey went down with injuries during spring training, Feldman became a logical choice to take the ball. While the Phillies didn't have a great offense last season, Feldman can still be safely avoided in all formats and is worth stacking against in daily fantasy leagues. The game in hitter-friendly Great American Ballpark has a high over/under set at 8.5 runs.--Matt Terelle - RotoBallerSource: foxsports.com

3 years agoBrandon Crawford went 2-for-5 in Sunday's loss to Arizona, scoring one run. Crawford batted fifth in the San Francisco lineup, a nice spot for RBI opportunities behind Hunter Pence and Buster Posey. Crawford is a solid yet uninspiring middle infield option -- useful in deep leagues, but you could be better off streaming batters in shallower formats.--Troy Klauder - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
Share:
3 years agoDenard Span batted leadoff and went 2-for-5 in Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks. Span is in a good position to score runs atop the Giants lineup, but he doesn't offer any upside for home run or stolen base production. The 33-year-old put together a full season last year, although he has dealt with injuries in the past and is no sure bet to stay on the field. Span does carry more value in points leagues because of his strong K/BB ratio, but he isn't worth hanging onto in most leagues.--Troy Klauder - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
Share:
3 years agoMatt Kemp showed up to camp in shape and ready to go, but he batted just .200 through 60 at-bats in spring training. Kemp had a much better time with the Braves after leaving San Diego last year, and he hopes to continue where he left off in Atlanta. If Kemp continues to hit behind Freddie Freeman, he can certainly pile up the RBIs. There is plenty of reason to be excited about Kemp having a full season in Atlanta.--DanSource: MLB.com
Share:
3 years agoEnder Inciarte is primed for another great year leading off and manning center field for the Braves. Inciarte is coming off his first Gold Glove season, where he saw a small dip in his batting average, but a slight bump in his ability to get on base. If Inciarte can harness his ability to take a walk while getting back to his 2015 batting average, he just might become one of the premier leadoff men in baseball.--DanSource: Baseball Reference
Share:
3 years agoJulio Teheran is set to start opening day for the Braves for the fourth straight year. Teheran finished 2016 with a solid 3.21 ERA over 188 innings. Teheran pitched 16 innings in spring training for a 2.81 ERA. He is primed to lead a very different looking Braves rotation and a club that is setting their sites on the future. Perhaps all the experience in the Braves rotation can help Teheran take his own game to the next level in 2017.--DanSource: Braves Twitter
Share:
3 years agoSean Rodriguez was officially placed on the 60-day disabled list on Sunday. Rodriguez was in a car accident this offseason that required him to have surgery on a torn rotator cuff. There is a small chance that he can return late in the year, but Rodriguez is likely to miss all of the 2017 season. Emilio Bonifacio took Rodriguez’s place on the 40-man roster, but if Rodriguez can return before the end of the year, he will be a great help that can play anywhere in the field.--DanSource: David O'Brien - Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Share:
3 years agoMasahiro Tanaka finished the 2016 season with a sterling 3.07 ERA, good for third in the American League. Unfortunately for his fantasy owners, little of that talent was on display in today’s loss versus the Rays. Tanaka was rocked for seven earned runs, eight hits, two walks and only three strikeouts in 2 2/3 innings. This was Tanaka’s third consecutive Opening Day start for the Yankees. Concerned owners can take heart from his 2015 campaign, when Tanaka began the season by lasting only four innings in a loss. He rewarded the patient by finishing 2015 with a 3.51 ERA and a 0.99 WHIP. Up next for Tanaka is a matchup against the Orioles, a team he has historically performed well against. In 37 2/3 innings, Tanaka has 40 strikeouts to only four walks and boasts an ERA of 2.39.--Tom Avery - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
Share:
3 years agoThe youth movement in New York hit a speed bump today when the exciting duo of Gary Sanchez and Greg Bird went a combined 0-for-9 in the Yankees' 7-3 loss to the Rays. The pair lit up spring training but found no success against Chris Archer or the Rays bullpen. Sanchez worked the count full with the bases loaded and two outs in the sixth, but was unable to capitalize and grounded out. They'll both look to rebound on Tuesday against Jake Odorizzi, who gave up a combined three home runs in only eight at-bats between the two hitters last season.--Tom Avery - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
Share:
3 years agoZack Greinke opened the season with a decent effort, pitching five innings while giving up two runs on four hits and two walks while striking our four. The outing could have been much worse for Greinke, who needed over 50 pitches to get through the first two innings. He settled down later in the game and left after giving up just the two runs. On the bright side, Greinke's velocity was up from what we saw in spring training. It was an encouraging start for Greinke, who got out of some jams and controlled the damage done early in the game. The former American League Cy Young winner will take on the dangerous Indians in his next start.--Jonathan Chan - RotoballerSource: ESPN
Share:
3 years agoEduardo Nunez had a great start to his 2017 season Sunday. The speedy infielder racked up three hits and stole two bases during San Francisco's loss to Arizona. He also scored a run and had an RBI. Nunez was very busy on the basepaths and seemed to be a distraction for the Arizona pitchers. A career .275 hitter, Nunez can contribute in multiple fantasy categories. He set career highs last year in home runs (16) and stolen bases (40) and appears eager to once again rank near the top of the league in steals. If he continues to hit in the sixth spot in San Francisco's lineup, he should find plenty of RBI opportunities with the likes of Brandon Belt, Buster Posey, Hunter Pence and Brandon Crawford hitting before him.--Barry Leonard - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
Share:
3 years agoMark Melancon's San Francisco debut didn't go as planned Sunday. He entered the bottom of the ninth with the Giants holding a 5-4 lead over the Diamondbacks. However, after retiring the first two batters he faced, the wheels fell off. A double by Jeff Mathis, followed by singles from Daniel Descalso, A.J. Pollock and Chris Owings handed the Giants a 6-5 loss. San Francisco spent $62 million in the offseason to shore up its bullpen with Melancon and will certainly hope for a better return on its investment. The 32-year-old saved 47 games last season and has been arguably one of the better closers in the game over the past few seasons. Consider Sunday just a bump in the road, as he'll have plenty of save opportunities coming up.--Barry Leonard - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
Share:
3 years agoPaul Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with an RBI in the D'Backs opening day win against the Giants. The star first baseman tied the game in the eighth inning with a single that scored A.J. Pollock. It was a great start to the season for Goldy, who was looking to start 2017 with a bang after hitting just .247 last April. His skills should be unquestioned at this point, and owners should expect Goldy to be one of the most valuable players in fantasy once again. The only question surrounding his season is the return of his power stroke. Even if he hits "only" 24 home runs this season, he'll continue to provide everything else for his owners. Expect Goldy to provide one of the most well-rounded lines in fantasy this year.--Jonathan Chan - RotoballerSource: ESPN
Share:
3 years ago2017 started in a big way for Madison Bumgarner on Sunday. The San Francisco ace stuck out 11 batters and became the first pitcher in MLB history to homer twice on Opening Day. Unfortunately, the Giants' bullpen was unable to hold a lead, and Bumgarner walked away with a no-decision. MadBum was very sharp for much of his outing, retiring the first 16 Diamondbacks he faced. However, he ran into trouble in the sixth and allowed three runs in the inning, including a home run to A.J. Pollock. Bumgarner finished his day with no walks and three runs on six hits in seven innings of work. Big numbers can usually be expected whenever Bumgarner takes the mound. Bumgarner's next start will be at Peto Park against the Padres, so he's a no-brainer must-start in all DFS and seasonal formats.--Barry Leonard - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
Share:
3 years agoJustin Verlander will make his ninth Opening Day start for the Tigers on Monday, toeing the rubber against the Chicago White Sox at US Cellular Field. Current White Sox players have managed just a .248 average against Verlander throughout his career, and Verlander owns a 3.84 ERA lifetime against the White Sox. Verlander is coming off a season in which many feel he was robbed of the Cy Young award, and he'll be looking to start 2017 in dominant fashion. He absolutely needs to be in your lineup until further notice.--Tyler Germain - RotoBallerSource: MLB
Share:
3 years agoA.J. Pollock is back. In a thrilling Opening Day win against the Giants, Pollock went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run against Madison Bumgarner. Pollock was instrumental in Arizona's comeback victory, hitting his home run in the sixth to tie the game at three. His ninth-inning single moved Daniel Descalso to third, who eventually scored on a Chris Owings single. After a disappointing spring, Pollock reminded everyone why he was a first-round pick in 2016 drafts. If he's able to stay healthy, Pollock will be one of the biggest draft steals of 2017.--Jonathan Chan - RotoballerSource: ESPN
Share:
3 years agoVeteran Albert Pujols (foot) is healthy heading into 2017 and is starting at designated hitter and batting fourth on opening day against Kendall Graveman and the A's. Pujols has transitioned over to full-time DH in his age-37 season after persistent foot injuries have hampered his mobility in the field. The injury to Luis Valbuena (hamstring) means Pujols will likely be in the lineup nearly every day for the first month or so of the season, but expect occasional days off as the season rolls on. Regardless, Pujols will still supply elite-level power, and hitting behind Mike Trout should provide plenty of RBI opportunities. Plug him into your lineup with confidence as long as he is healthy enough to swing a bat.--Andy Patton - RotoBallerSource: Pedro Moura
Share:
3 years agoOakland A's manager Bob Melvin reiterated that the ninth-inning role will be matchup-based in 2017. Veteran's Ryan Madson, Sean Doolittle and Santiago Casilla appear to be the primary options, with John Axford also in the mix. Situational mixing and matching could boost the value for the only left-hander in the group, Sean Doolittle. The 30-year-old has battled shoulder injuries the last few years. He threw 39 innings in 2016, marking his second straight season under 40 innings. He was productive though, posting a 10.38 strikeout rate and a 1.85 walk rate with a 3.23 ERA and 1.05 WHIP. Doolittle served as the closer in 2014, amassing 22 saves with a 2.73 ERA and 89 strikeouts in 62 2/3 innings. If he can remain healthy, he is a solid speculative add for someone desperate for saves, and a good daily pickup against heavy left-handed hitting teams.--Andy Patton - RotoBallerSource: Susan Slusser
Share:
3 years agoEvan Longoria and Logan Morrison both took Masahiro Tanaka deep on Sunday while driving in three runs apiece. Longoria hit a line drive homer over the short left field wall at Tropicana Field in the second inning and Morrison followed that up with a solo shot in the third to put the Rays up by five. Longoria is likely to lead the Rays in the RBI department this year, but getting regular production like this from Morrison isn't likely to happen.--Tim Hiebert - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
Share:
3 years agoAlex Colome picked up his first save of the season on Opening Day. Despite a five-run lead, Colome entered the game in a save situation after New York loaded the bases with nobody out in the top of the ninth inning. He allowed one run to score on a sacrifice fly, but didn't allow a hit or walk in securing the win. Colome only needed 13 pitches to register the save and should be ready to pitch again soon if needed.--Tim Hiebert - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
Share:
3 years agoChris Archer pitched seven strong innings while picking up the win versus the Yankees in Tampa Bay's home opener. Archer allowed two runs on seven hits while striking out five and walking only one. Archer is already only eight wins away from matching last year's win total, where he struggled to receive a lot of run support. The Rays put up seven runs early for Archer today though, as he cruised to victory. Archer's next start is scheduled for Saturday at home against Toronto, and you should roll him out there with confidence in all formats.--Tim Hiebert - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
Share:
3 years agoThe Angels are planning to start the season with Yunel Escobar as their leadoff hitter, reports Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times. Escobar has hit over .300 the last two seasons, but was supported by BABIPs of .347 and .339, both above his career .309 mark. For him to hold any fantasy value, he will need to hit .300 again, as his five home runs, 39 RBI and zero steals from 2016 make him irrelevant in mixed leagues. His strikeout and walk rates have remained consistent throughout his career, so another .300 season is not out of the question. Hitting leadoff should help Escobar in the runs department, and a very low 5.3 HR/FB ratio last year means he could be in line for a few more home runs in 2017. However, unless you are in a deep mixed or AL-only league, leave Escobar on the waiver wire.--Andy Patton - RotoBallerSource: Pedro Moura
Share:
3 years agoThe A's officially placed starting pitcher Sonny Gray (lat strain) on the 10-day disabled list. This does not come as a surprise, as Gray has been out since March 9 with the injury. Gray was able to throw all of his pitches in a flat-ground session on Saturday, meaning a return to the mound may be on the horizon. The 27-year-old is targeting a late-April return. Gray is a risky bounce-back candidate this season after a poor 2016, but could reward fantasy owners who are patient with him in the early going. If you have a DL spot, he is worth a stash -- at least to see how his first few starts go. Don't expect a return to his 2015 numbers, however.--Andy Patton - RotoBallerSource: Jane Lee
Share:
3 years agoHarrison Barnes has been in a rut lately. Over his last 10 games, he’s averaging just 14.9 points per game (43.5 field goal percentage), 4.9 rebounds and 1.4 assists. Because of that, he really isn’t worth starting today. The Bucks are a stingy defensive unit that isn’t going to allow any easy buckets. That means Harrison Barnes is going to be in for a long night.--Aaron S - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
Share:
3 years agoAfter another season that saw him struggle with injuries and inconsistencies, Giancarlo Stanton would love nothing more than to start off 2017 with a bang. Thankfully for him, Stanton will open the year against Stephen Strasburg and the Washington Nationals. Stanton has absolutely owned Strasburg over his career, batting .368 with three homers and 10 RBI. Stanton's power is unmatched by anyone else in the big leagues, and it's quite possible we could see a moon shot in his first game of 2017.--Steven Slivka - RotoBallerSource: espn.com
Share:
3 years agoThe Angels will hit superstar Mike Trout third in the lineup again this season, according to Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times. Trout will hit between Kole Calhoun and Albert Pujols, a spot that should afford him plenty of runs and RBI. The only real knock on Trout before last season was his year-to-year decline in stolen bases. Trout's stolen base numbers dropped to 11 in 2015. However, he vowed to correct that going into last season and kept good on his word, finishing 2016 with 30 steals for the first time since 2013. There is no reason to anticipate anything less than a 25/25 season from Trout, with 30/30 very much within striking distance. Hitting between two very good hitters will do nothing but help Trout's fantasy value as he heads into his age-25 season.--Andy Patton - RotoBallerSource: Pedro Moura
Share:
3 years agoDerek Dietrich will start the season as the Marlins' third baseman against the Washington Nationals. Dietrich will start in place of Martin Prado, who injured his hamstring during the World Baseball Classic. Dietrich has starting experience, including last season when he spelled second baseman Dee Gordon while Gordon served an 80-game suspensions for performance-enhancing drugs. Always the utility man, Dietrich can play any position in the infield. He will bat seventh in the lineup against Stephen Strasburg and the Nats.--Steven Slivka - RotoBallerSource: marlins.com
Share:
3 years agoThe Charlotte Hornets are facing off against the Oklahoma City Thunder tonight, and that’s good news for Nicolas Batum. OKC doesn’t really have anyone on their roster that’s going to be able to slow him down. Because of that, he needs to be placed into your starting lineups today. Look for him to get close to earning himself a triple-double. I’d say 16 points, seven rebounds and seven assists is what you should expect to see from him.--Aaron S - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
