Pirates | Francisco Cervelli back in lineup

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 13:09:28 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli (wrist) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, July 19, and is batting sixth in the lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Junior Guerra. The team also designated C Erik Kratz for assignment.

Fantasy Tip: Cervelli should receive most of the starts at catcher as long as he can stay healthy. He is hitting .257 with 21 RBI this season and should be a decent starting option in two-catcher leagues.

Pirates | Josh Harrison, Jung Ho Kang resting

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 08:54:16 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Josh Harrison and 3B Jung Ho Kang are out of the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer Sunday, July 17. INF Adam Frazier will bat second and play second base, while INF David Freese will bat fifth and play first base. In addition, OF Matt Joyce will bat sixth and play right field, with C Erik Kratz batting eighth and starting behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Freese and Joyce have been enjoying productive seasons, although Joyce is just 2-for-20 in his career off Scherzer and is not a recommended fantasy option this afternoon. Frazier and Kratz should be viewed strictly as a means of emergency cap relief in DFS.

Pirates | Jung Ho Kang starting Saturday

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 15:58:55 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Jung Ho Kang is in back in the lineup batting cleanup Saturday, July 9, against Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester and will play third base. 1B/3B David Freese will replace 1B John Jaso at first and hit second, while C Eric Fryer will bat eighth and fill in for C Erik Kratz.

Fantasy Tip: Even though Lester is coming off a horrible outing, it is hard to recommend any of these Pirates in DFS or most normal-sized leagues, although it is worth noting Kang is 3-for-9 and Freese is 5-for-13 against the southpaw. Fryer is worth adding in two-catcher leagues and may end up becoming the regular catcher in Pittsburgh before long.

Pirates | Jung Ho Kang out Monday

Mon, 04 Jul 2016 09:51:12 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Jung Ho Kang is out of the lineup Monday, July 4, with 3B David Freese hitting fifth. C Erik Kratz is also in there hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Freese has had a nice .289-8-35, and he's a lower-middle option in his hometown against Carlos Martinez. Kratz isn't worth consideration in DFS today.

Pirates | Chris Stewart not starting

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 11:15:17 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Chris Stewart is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Daniel Mengden Sunday, July 3. C Erik Kratz will start at catcher and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Kratz is hitting only .085 with one home run this season and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.
