Hit Parade for Week 3

Senior Fantasy Writer
  •  

Editor's note: We don't state the obvious here at CBSSports.com because we don't want to waste your time (or ours). You won't read Scott telling you to start Evan Longoria or Andrew McCutchen. Instead, he'll be focusing on the fringe players on every roster to help you make those tough weekly lineup decisions. These designations indicate a player's Fantasy value for the current week only.

All stats are updated through Wednesday, April 10.

Arizona Diamondbacks

Schedule: @NYY3, @COL3
Worth a second look: Gerardo Parra, A.J. Pollock
Less than advisable: Jason Kubel
Even though he's only 1 for 12 against lefties this season, I'm throwing caution to the wind and recommending Parra in points leagues with three lefties on tap this week. That's because two of them, Jorge De La Rosa and Jeff Francis, probably won't last long at Coors Field, where all of the Diamondbacks figure to put up big numbers. Pollock should get consistent playing time with the DH available the first half of the week.

Atlanta Braves

Schedule: KC2, @PIT4
Worth a second look: Evan Gattis, Andrelton Simmons
Less than advisable: Jason Heyward
Now that he's actually eligible at catcher and playing every day to help make up for the loss of Freddie Freeman, Gattis is an advisable start in all formats, especially with three hittable lefties in Jeff Locke, Wandy Rodriguez and Jonathan Sanchez on tap. Those lefties might also be the excuse you need to sit Heyward. Even last year, he hit only .224 against southpaws, and his mechanics appear to be out of whack right now.

10. Josh Rutledge, 2B, Rockies 69

Baltimore Orioles

Schedule: TB3, LAD3
Worth a second look: None
Less than advisable: Chris Davis, J.J Hardy
To be honest, I probably won't sit Davis either given his hot start, but I don't think he'll have a particularly good week. The six pitchers he's facing -- Matt Moore, Alex Cobb, David Price, Hyun-Jin Ryu, Josh Beckett and Chad Billingsley -- all have the kind of stuff that should give a free-swinger like him fits. Plus, three of them are lefties. Maybe in a 10-team league with 16-man lineups, I could talk myself into it?

Boston Red Sox

Schedule: TB1, @CLE3, KC3
Worth a second look: Jackie Bradley, Jarrod Saltalamacchia
Less than advisable: David Ortiz
Given his lack of production to date, starting Bradley is no doubt risky, but with Ortiz expected to return from the DL as early as April 19, this week may be Bradley's last chance to make an impression. And seeing as the Red Sox face nothing but right-handers, with the first four being Jeremy Hellickson and whoever the Indians dig up, I trust him to make the most of it.

Chicago Cubs

Schedule: TEX3, @MIL3
Worth a second look: None
Less than advisable: Alfonso Soriano, Darwin Barney
The Cubs have decent matchups this week, but with most of the high-end pitchers around the league making only one start, most teams do. With that in mind, decent matchups aren't enough to compel me to start an ice-cold Soriano, who is without an extra-base hit on the season.

Chicago White Sox

Schedule: @TOR4, MIN3
Worth a second look: Paul Konerko, Alexei Ramirez, Tyler Flowers
Less than advisable: Dayan Viciedo
The White Sox play in nothing but hitter's parks this week, so the fringy hitters who perform significantly better at home -- another hitter's park -- will be getting a second look from me. Konerko has reached the stage in his career when a slow start gets him benched in a third of all leagues, but I'm thinking he steps it up against Mark Buehrle, J.A. Happ and the lightweight Twins rotation.

Cincinnati Reds

Schedule: PHI3, MIA4
Worth a second look: Todd Frazier
Less than advisable: Zack Cozart
In a week the Reds are facing Kyle Kendrick, John Lannan, Kevin Slowey, Wade LeBlanc and Alex Sanabia over seven games, I'd like to be able to hype all of their hitters. Unfortunately, Frazier is the only one who falls into the fringy range, and with a starting percentage of 87, he's pushing it. OK, so there's Cozart as well, but unless he's blazing hot, he's pretty much worthless to me.

Cleveland Indians

Schedule: BOS3, @HOU3
Worth a second look: Mark Reynolds
Less than advisable: Jason Kipnis, Lonnie Chisenhall
As much as you paid for him, maybe you stick with Kipnis out of principle. But he has yet to get anything going at the plate this season, and he hit .215 with a .581 OPS against lefties last season. I expect Felix Doubront, Jon Lester and Erik Bedard to give him fits this week and would be looking to the waiver wire for a short-term replacement.

10. Daniel Murphy, 2B, Mets 14

Colorado Rockies

Schedule: NYM4, ARI3
Worth a second look: Dexter Fowler, Michael Cuddyer, Josh Rutledge, Chris Nelson
Less than advisable: None
A full week at home. It's a beautiful thing for Rockies hitters, especially when hittable types like Jeremy Hefner, Aaron Laffey and Brandon McCarthy are among the seven pitchers they're facing. Hot hands like Fowler and Cuddyer are no-brainers for this week, but even Rutledge and Nelson are advisable in mixed leagues, given their eligibility at second base. Nelson hit .347 with a .911 OPS at home last year.

Detroit Tigers

Schedule: @SEA3, @LAA3
Worth a second look: Alex Avila, Torii Hunter
Less than advisable: Victor Martinez, Jhonny Peralta
During what was a miserable, injury-plagued 2012, Avila actually posted respectable numbers against right-handed pitchers, batting .262 with a .796 OPS. He gets five this week -- and some of them lightweights like Blake Beavan, Garrett Richards and Joe Blanton. With a couple home runs in his last four games, he could be on the verge of a big week. Coming back from knee surgery, Martinez is 3 for 25 and now playing with a stitched thumb. Sit him until he proves himself.

Houston Astros

Schedule: @OAK3, CLE3
Worth a second look: Jason Castro, Marwin Gonzalez
Less than advisable: J.D. Martinez
Though Gonzalez's power surge is unlikely to continue, he, like many switch-hitters, is significantly better against right-handers than left-handers, batting .291 compared to .138 for his career, so righties like A.J. Griffin, Bartolo Colon, Ubaldo Jimenez, Brett Myers and Carlos Carrasco should help him remain the hot hand at a weak position this week. With Fernando Martinez back from the DL this weekend, J.D. Martinez's time as a semi-regular is likely done.

Kansas City Royals

Schedule: @ATL2, @BOS3
Worth a second look: None
Less than advisable: Eric Hosmer, Lorenzo Cain
The problem for the Royals this week is they're the only team playing five games, and three of them are against some pretty tough pitchers in Kris Medlen, Mike Minor and Clay Buchholz. With the DH spot unavailable in Atlanta, Hosmer is likely to sit at least one game, leaving him with a four-game week. Cain has been heating up but lacks the big-game potential to factor in such a short week.

Los Angeles Angels

Schedule: @MIN3, DET3
Worth a second look: None
Less than advisable: Erick Aybar
Aybar's bruised left heel showed enough improvement after Wednesday's game that a trip to the DL is no longer a foregone conclusion, but it's still enough of a possibility that you're better off sitting him for an Andrelton Simmons or Jean Segura type. The six righties on tap wouldn't do him much good anyway. He hit about 60 points higher against lefties last season.

Los Angeles Dodgers

Schedule: SD3, @BAL3
Worth a second look: Andre Ethier
Less than advisable: None
Ethier has been a disappointment so far, but when you consider the Dodgers have faced five left-handers in their eight games, it's not too surprising. Ethier hit only .222 with a .606 OPS against lefties last year compared to .325 with a .945 OPS against righties. The Dodgers do face two lefties this week, but the four righties on the schedule -- Jason Marquis, Tyson Ross, Jason Hammel and Jake Arrieta -- are the kind that end slumps.
Best Five Hitting Schedules
Team Schedule
1. Rockies NYM4, ARI3
2. Rangers @CHC3, SEA3
3. Reds PHI3, MIA4
4. Diamondbacks @NYY3, @COL3
5. Red Sox TB1, @CLE3, KC3

Miami Marlins

Schedule: WAS3, @CIN4
Worth a second look: None
Less than advisable: Justin Ruggiano
Maybe if you play in a deep NL-only league, players like Placido Polanco and Donovan Solano might have some value at weak positions during a week when the Marlins are playing seven games, but as much trouble as they've had scoring runs so far, who can I honestly endorse here? Ruggiano did most of his damage against lefties last year, so with six righties on tap, I wouldn't expect a bounce-back week.

Milwaukee Brewers

Schedule: SF3, CHC3
Worth a second look: Norichika Aoki
Less than advisable: Carlos Gomez, Jonathan Lucroy
Aoki is hot enough, batting .500 (11 for 22) with three doubles and two steals over his last five games, that the matchups shouldn't have much say in whether you start or sit him. But Ryan Vogelsong, Matt Cain and Jeff Samardzija won't do much good for anyone else. I wouldn't suggest you drop Lucroy, but given the number of hot-hitting catchers emerging off the waiver wire right now, if you can afford to roster two, Lucroy is probably the one to sit.

Minnesota Twins

Schedule: LAA3, @CHW3
Worth a second look: Justin Morneau, Darin Mastroianni
Less than advisable: Aaron Hicks
It may not happen this week, but with rookie Aaron Hicks bombing at the plate and angering manager Ron Gardenhire with his lack of hustle, the transition to speedster Mastroianni in center field seems inevitable. The 27-year-old, who was hobbled by a bruised ankle at the start of the year, has league-leading steals potential, so even now, he's startable in Rotisserie leagues if you need help in that category.

New York Mets

Schedule: @COL4, WAS3
Worth a second look: Lucas Duda, Daniel Murphy
Less than advisable: John Buck
Yes, it's true. Buck, the lord of the long ball, opens the week with four games at Coors Field, and I want nothing to do with him. He's performed so far over his head to this point that you've probably missed your opportunity with him. A course correction is coming, and if it doesn't during that first series, it's sure to against Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez and Jordan Zimmermann to end the week.

New York Yankees

Schedule: ARI3, @TOR3
Worth a second look: Vernon Wells
Less than advisable: Travis Hafner
The Yankees haven't faced a left-hander since Jon Lester in the season opener, so going against Wade Miley, Patrick Corbin and Mark Buehrle this week is uncharted territory for them. It can only be a good thing for the already-hot Vernon Wells, though, whose career batting average is about 30 points higher against lefties than righties. He's adequate in leagues that require five outfielders.

Oakland Athletics

Schedule: HOU3, @TB3
Worth a second look: Coco Crisp, Jed Lowrie
Less than advisable: Brandon Moss, John Jaso
The Athletics have some of the hottest hitters in baseball right now, and pitchers like Brad Peacock, Bud Norris, Jeremy Hellickson and Roberto Hernandez figure to keep it that way. Unfortunately, the other two pitchers on tap, Erik Bedard and Matt Moore, are tough enough lefties that the Athletics are likely to sit Moss and Jaso against them, and I wouldn't recommend any player destined for a four-game week.

Philadelphia Phillies

Schedule: @CIN3, STL4
Worth a second look: Ryan Howard, Domonic Brown, Ben Revere
Less than advisable: None
In short, any Phillie worth rostering is worth starting this week (John Mayberry and Erik Kratz don't quite make the cut for me). Howard, Brown and Revere aren't off to the greatest starts this season, but none of them look lost at the plate either. With seven games at tiny ballparks and six right-handers on the schedule (which is especially important for Howard and Brown), I have a feeling all three come alive this week.

Pittsburgh Pirates

Schedule: STL3, ATL4
Worth a second look: Garrett Jones
Less than advisable: Pedro Alvarez, Starling Marte
With the Pirates facing a disproportionate number of lefties to start the season, Jones has been sort of an afterthought in Fantasy, but he hit .289 with an .888 OPS against righties last year. With six on tap this week, he's a sleeper for deeper leagues. The specific pitchers are pretty tough, though. Marte, one of the few Pirates who's been hitting well, has poor splits against righties and at home so far in his career.
Worst Five Hitting Schedules
Team Schedule
1. Padres @LAD3, @SF3
2. Orioles TB3, LAD3
3. Royals @ATL2, @BOS3
4. Brewers SF3, CHC3
5. Pirates STL3, ATL4

San Diego Padres

Schedule: @LAD3, @SF3
Worth a second look: None
Less than advisable: Yonder Alonso, Jedd Gyorko, Everth Cabrera, Chase Headley
In a week when few teams have bad matchups, the Padres have the worst, facing off against Clayton Kershaw and Madison Bumgarner, among others. None of their fringies are good enough to start with those hurlers on tap. Headley doesn't normally fall into that category, of course, but the possibility of him picking up a few at-bats at the end of the week may cause some Fantasy owners to waver. Better give him more time.

San Francisco Giants

Schedule: @MIL3, SD3
Worth a second look: Angel Pagan
Less than advisable: Brandon Belt
Apart from Buster Posey and Pablo Sandoval, who are too obvious to mention, really, Pagan is the Giant swinging the hottest bat right now, batting .429 (9 for 21) with a double, a triple and a steal in his last five games. He's startable even with so-so matchups this week. Belt may eventually earn that status, but with him still regaining his strength after losing 10 pounds to an early-season illness, you can do better.

Seattle Mariners

Schedule: DET3, @TEX3
Worth a second look: Kendrys Morales, Kyle Seager, Raul Ibanez
Less than advisable: Dustin Ackley
Looking at last year's splits, the five righties on tap should benefit both Kendrys Morales, who has been heating up lately, and Kyle Seager, who hasn't but who hit .364 with a .977 OPS in 44 at-bats at Texas last year, where the Mariners close out their week. Ibanez figures to be the prime beneficiary of Michael Saunders' sprained shoulder, at least against righties. Deeper-league owners, take note.

St. Louis Cardinals

Schedule: @PIT3, @PHI4
Worth a second look: Matt Carpenter
Less than advisable: Jon Jay, Matt Adams
Adams has raised eyebrows by homering in back-to-back games, the first as a pinch-hitter, but manager Mike Matheny has suggested the rookie will play only two or three times per week -- and not always at Allen Craig's expense. The distribution of at-bats between Carpenter, Freese and Daniel Descalso at second and third base is the one more pertinent to Fantasy owners. The way he's swinging the bat, Carpenter could sit twice during a seven-game week and still deliver starter-worthy numbers.

Tampa Bay Rays

Schedule: @BOS1, @BAL3, OAK3
Worth a second look: None
Less than advisable: Yunel Escobar
The only Rays to play every game through the team's first nine games are Evan Longoria, Ben Zobrist, Desmond Jennings and Yunel Escobar. With all that mixing and matching, none of the borderline types are especially advisable even in a seven-game week. Escobar qualifies as a borderline type, but considering he's off to a 3-for-30 start, you can do better.

Texas Rangers

Schedule: @CHC3, SEA3
Worth a second look: Lance Berkman
Less than advisable: Leonys Martin, Mitch Moreland
Fear not, Berkman owners. With only Moreland standing in his way, the Rangers should have no qualms playing the 37-year-old at first base during the three games they'll be without the DH. He may sit once during that series, but chances are he'll sit once a week anyway. Speaking of sitting, Martin has done too much of it so far for me to trust him in mixed leagues, good matchups or not.

Toronto Blue Jays

Schedule: CHW4, NYY3
Worth a second look: J.P. Arencibia
Less than advisable: Colby Rasmus
Arencibia's high strikeout rate hasn't held him back so far. As long as he's hot, you might as well make the most of his power potential. He's always fared better against lefties, and some of the Blue Jays' toughest matchups in a relatively easy week are Jose Quintana, Chris Sale and Andy Pettitte. Rasmus has just as many home runs so far but was almost a non-factor against lefties last season.

Washington Nationals

Schedule: @MIA3, @NYM3
Worth a second look: Jayson Werth, Denard Span
Less than advisable: Wilson Ramos, Kurt Suzuki
Yet another of the many teams with terrific matchups this week, about the only Nationals you'd consider sitting are those mired slumps, which basically just includes Ryan Zimmerman. He's obviously too high-end to sit. Given the way Ramos and Suzuki are alternating starts, you should probably avoid both in standard mixed leagues. Werth, meanwhile, is looking like a must-start again now that his wrist is back to full strength.

Player News
Robbie Ross earns win Wednesday vs. A's
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:48 am ET) Rangers pitcher Robbie Ross picked up a win Wednesday, striking out one in 1 2/3 scoreless innings in his team's 6-1 victory over the A's.

Ross (3-6) was one of three pitchers to appear in the bottom of the eighth inning Wednesday, and after the Rangers scored six runs on three A's relievers in the top of the ninth, Ross finished off the win with a clean bottom half of the final inning. He owns a 6.39 ERA and 49:29 K:BB ratio in 74 2/3 innings.


J.P. Arencibia slugs 10th home run in win vs. A's
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:46 am ET) Rangers designated hitter J.P. Arencibia went 1 for 4 with a three-run home run in his team's 6-1 victory over the A's Wednesday.

After the Rangers evened the score at 1-1 in the ninth inning, Arencibia put his team up with a big blast over the left field fence. He has a modest four-game hitting streak with two home runs during that stretch. Arencibia has hit .173/.234/.367 with 10 home runs and 35 RBI in 196 at-bats.


Sean Doolittle blows save, takes loss Wednesday vs. Rangers
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:46 am ET) Athletics closer Sean Doolittle blew a save opportunity Wednesday and was stuck with the loss in his team's 6-1 defeat against the Rangers.

Doolittle (1-4) was tasked with protecting a 1-0 lead but surrendered a game-tying double before the Rangers broke things open with a three-run home run. The closer finished with five earned runs on three hits and two walks in just one-third of an inning. Doolittle owns a 2.97 ERA, 0.76 WHIP and 83:7 K:BB ratio in 57 2/3 innings.


Jeff Samardzija strikes out 10 in gem vs. Rangers
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:45 am ET) Athletics pitcher Jeff Samardzija didn't factor into the decision Wednesday despite giving up just four hits in eight scoreless innings while striking out 10 and walking none in his team's 6-1 defeat against the Rangers.

Samardzija matched his season high for strikeouts in the gem, and he's now delivered 15 innings of scoreless baseball over his last two starts. However, the bullpen blew his lead in the ninth inning to keep him at 6-12. Despite his record, he's been excellent this season, posting a 2.98 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 190:43 K:BB ratio in 205 2/3 innings. Samardzija is slated to face the Angels Monday.


Derek Holland allows one run in no-decision vs. A's
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:45 am ET) Rangers pitcher Derek Holland didn't factor into the decision Wednesday, giving up one earned run on four hits and three walks in 6 1/3 innings while striking out five in his team's 6-1 win over the A's.

Holland turned in his fourth straight strong start and actually saw his ERA rise despite the excellent line. The only run came on a single with two men on in the fifth inning, giving Holland four straight starts with one run or no runs since coming off the disabled list. He owns a 0.99 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 22:3 K:BB ratio in 27 1/3 innings. Hollard is scheduled to face the Astros Monday.


Mariners announce weekend rotation plans
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:33 am ET) The Mariners announced Wednesday that Taijuan Walker will draw the start in Friday's series opener against the Astros in Houston.

Walker hasn't made a start for the Mariners since late July, but he's managed to make three appearances out of the bullpen in September. He owns a 2.96 ERA and 21:15 K:BB ratio in 24 1/3 innings.

The announcement will move Chris Young back to Saturday and Hisashi Iwakuma to Sunday.


Eric Stults chased in fifth inning of loss vs. Phillies
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:03 am ET) Padres pitcher Eric Stults took a loss Wednesday, allowing four earned runs on six hits in 4 1/3 innings while striking out two in his team's 5-2 defeat against the Phillies.

Stults (7-17) delivered four scoreless innings before running into trouble in the fifth, when the Phillies opened the inning with four singles to score two runs and then followed a sacrifice with a two-run double, which chased the starter from the game. It's the first time since June 8 Stults has failed to finish five innings. He owns a 4.59 ERA and 101:44 K:BB ratio in 162 2/3 innings. Stults is scheduled to face the Rockies Tuesday.


Cole Hamels strikes out nine in win vs. Padres
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:03 am ET) Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels earned a win Wednesday, allowing one earned run on seven hits and one walk in seven innings while striking out nine in his team's 5-2 victory over the Padres.

Hamels (9-7) gave up just one run for the second straight start, and he's turned in 11 quality starts in 12 tries in the second half, with the only "off" day resulting in a five-inning, three-run win. He owns an excellent 2.47 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 187:57 K:BB ratio in 189 2/3 innings. Hamels is scheduled to face the Marlins Tuesday.


C.J. Cron swats 11th home run Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:52 am ET) Angels first baseman C.J. Cron went 2 for 3 with a three-run home run in his team's 5-0 win over the Mariners Wednesday.

Cron's home run came at an opportune time, as the Mariners turned to the bullpen in the seventh inning only for the Angels first baseman to immediately smack a three-run blast to put the lead out of reach. He has hit .273/.301/.482 with 11 home runs and 35 RBI in 220 at-bats.


C.J. Wilson tosses seven one-hit innings in win Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:48 am ET) Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson earned a win Wednesday, allowing just one hit and three walks in seven scoreless innings while striking out seven in his team's 5-0 victory over the Mariners.

Wilson (13-9) retired the first 11 batters he faced Wednesday before issuing a walk, and his no-hitter came to an end with two outs in the fifth. It's his first time since May 17 getting through a start without giving up a run. Wilson owns a 4.42 ERA and 149:78 K:BB ratio in 169 innings. He's slated to face the A's Monday.
