Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen will return to the lineup Friday and bat in the No. 6 spot. The outfielder has been a shell of his former self this season and was rested the past two nights. He did pinch hit on Wednesday and went 0-for-1. The outfielder has really struggled and is 2-for-22 over... Read More

Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Gregory Polanco was activated from the disabled list on Thursday but didn't take the field. On Friday, he will be back in his usual cleanup spot against Mets starter Jacob deGrom.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 19% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: Adam Frazier won't hold down center field for the Pirates all season, but maybe he should. In two days filling in for a struggling Andrew McCutchen, Frazier hit three-run homers on consecutive days. He is now hitting a surprising .361 with a .961 OPS on... Read More

Don't look now, but in addition to hitting .361 on the season, Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Adam Frazier is going on a power surge. The utility man was in center field the last two days, and he did his best Andrew McCutchen impression while filling in for the struggling star. Frazier hit a three-run homer for the... Read More

Pittsburgh Pirates catcher Francisco Cervelli went 4-for-5 with two runs and two RBI on Thursday afternoon, marking his best game of the season. Cervelli isn't a high-end option as far as catchers go, but he is picking up the pace lately with three multi-hit games and five total RBI in the last week. On the season,... Read More

Pittsburgh Pirates starting pitcher Ivan Nova nearly went the distance against Atlanta before being pulled in the ninth inning Thursday. He threw exactly 100 pitches on the afternoon, giving up four runs and 10 hits over 8 1/3 innings. Nova was cruising along with a shutout until the Braves scored once in the seventh, once in...

Pittsburgh Pirates starting pitcher Jameson Taillon is making steady progress in his return from surgery for testicular cancer. He went through a 25-pitch bullpen session on Wednesday, then a slightly more intense 35-pitch session this morning. He will keep ramping up his activity gradually. "We will see how his body responds to the volume... and... Read More

Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen had a scheduled day off on Wednesday but wound up pinch hitting in the 10th inning and delivered a leadoff single that led to a Pirates rally. After McCutchen reached, the Bucs exploded for seven runs and won in extras 12-5. Perhaps due to his appearance late in the game, he... Read More

Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Gregory Polanco was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list on Thursday morning, the first day he was eligible. Polanco has been dinged up all year with various issues including shoulder soreness and groin soreness, but it was a hamstring strain that finally sidelined him. He is not in the starting lineup posted by... Read More

Welcome back to Digging Deeper! I'll be taking a look at some deeper AL waiver wire options for Week 8 of the fantasy baseball season. Not to toot my own horn, but if you've been following this series thus far, you should have found a diamond in the rough by now. Some of the names that... Read More

Saves are an important component for many fantasy baseball leagues. Closers are one of the most volatile positions in fantasy baseball, and one of the highest turnover positions in MLB. Each year, closers drop like flies and many MLB teams make in-season changes due to injuries or poor performance. Stay on top of all closer depth... Read More

Today is broken into two slates that are similar in size. Neither slate is very big, but there are plenty of plays on the early and late slate, though. This article focuses on both of these slates.  In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for DraftKings on... Read More

After a dismal 0-for-5 performance the night before, Pittsburgh Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen is getting a day off Wednesday. There are no physical issues to speak of, so it seems to be strictly for mental rest. McCutchen is slashing .200/.271/.359 on the season with an 0.80 GB/FB rate that is the highest of his...

We have another big slate, but there is a smaller early slate, as well. This article will use picks from both slates, as there are enough games to comfortably make lineups.  In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for DraftKings on 5/24/17. The DFS lineup picks will... Read More

Pittsburgh Pirates closer Tony Watson played the role of goat on Tuesday night, blowing another save and taking his first loss of the season. After a lengthy rain delay and a comeback by the Pirates in the top of the ninth to take the lead, he promptly blew the game in the bottom half of the... Read More

Pittsburgh Pirates starting pitcher Tyler Glasnow was good on the mound, but even better at the plate on Tuesday night. Glasnow managed to throw six innings of two-run ball before the rain came, earning a quality start for the third time in nine starts. He was arguably better as a hitter, going 3-for-3. He is now... Read More

Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen went 0-for-5 and stranded seven runners on Tuesday night. The miserable evening dropped his average to an even .200. There's still plenty of season left to turn things around, but Cutch has been an albatross to the averages for his fantasy owners. It shouldn't be a surprise, as his batting average... Read More

The pitcher landscape is honestly not all that inspiring save for some guys lingering around due to market inefficiencies. You'll find three Rockies here, and honestly, Jeff Hoffman could've made four but those in redraft leagues likely can't deal with stashing him while Colorado shuttles him back and forth between the Majors and Minors. Here... Read More

Surprisingly, there aren't many value pitching options, but there are plenty of value bats to take advantage of.  In this article, I will be... Read More

He was tagged for two home runs, including one by new Braves first baseman Matt Adams. This goes down as Cole's shortest outing of... Read More

In the midst of turning a double play in the fifth inning, Pittsburgh Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer took a groundball to the hand. He left the game with discomfort in his throwing hand and is considered day-to-day for the time being. Mercer is not much of a fantasy factor, so he won't be missed in many... Read More
