Pittsburgh Pirates shortstop Kevin Newman is off for Thursday's series finale at the San Francisco Giants. Cole Tucker will play short and bat sixth, while second baseman Adam Frazier moves to Newman's usual leadoff spot. No one usually makes for a particularly good DFS hitting play at Oracle Park, and Tucker's rookie struggles make him a particularly poor option. Frazier is slightly better, but not by much with just nine home runs and four steals this season.
Pittsburgh Pirates shortstop Kevin Newman (leg) is back in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Miami Marlins. He missed a few games due to a lingering leg issue, but appears to be fine now. Newman will bat leadoff and play shortstop versus righty Elieser Hernandez. He's a great DFS option for games on Thursday.
Pittsburgh Pirates infielder Kevin Newman (leg) will not be in the starting lineup Wednesday against the Miami Marlins. Newman has been experiencing leg tightness but is going to test out how he feels before the game and could be available for the Pirates off the bench. Erik Gonzalez has started at short in his absence but may take a seat in this matchup after the recent call-up of shortstop prospect Cole Tucker. Both players aren't worth much fantasy consideration.
