Zinkie: Yes, I would. I expect them to give similar production this summer. But Peralta is arguably safer.
Zinkie on Reds' callup of Reed
Fred Zinkie examines the Reds' callup of Cody Reed
MLB.com's fantasy writer Fred Zinkie discusses the fantasy impact pitcher Cody Reed could make in the Reds' rotation
@FortonJohnny: Should I replace Randal Grichuk with Robbie Grossman, Corey Dickerson or Justin Turner?
Zinkie: Go with Turner. He is hitting well from a premium lineup spot. Also, he was very good in 2015.
@jakefunkhouser: In a 16-team league, would you rather own Addison Russell or Tim Anderson?
Zinkie: In a deep league, I'll take the safety of Russell. In a 10-team league, I would have chosen Anderson.
@AdamGIvany: I am stashing Dee Gordon. Should I drop Javier Baez for Starlin Castro?
Zinkie: Yes, you should drop Baez for Castro.
@nickk_howardd: Is it time to give up on Marcus Stroman?
Zinkie: He can be dropped in shallow leagues. His low strikeout rate limits his upside.
@thegoldrushh: Please rank Blake Snell, Rick Porcello, Zach Davies and Matt Shoemaker.
Zinkie: Shoemaker, Snell, Porcello, Davies.
@dyl_picks: Which infielder should I drop out of Troy Tulowitzki, Jung Ho Kang and Jonathan Villar?
Zinkie: Drop Tulowitzki. Villar and Kang have played too well to be dropped.
Kang's RBI single
PIT@CHC: Kang scores Marte with an infield single
Jung Ho Kang knocks in Starling Marte with a soft single to third to pull the Pirates within two runs in the 7th inning
@LyndonBryanton: How do you expect John Lackey to fare the rest of the season? Should I give up Rich Hill for him?
Zinkie: I expect Lackey to be very consistent. I prefer him to Hill, due to Hill's injury risk.
@rutpharmknights: What kind of value will Derek Dietrich have after Gordon returns? Should I trade him now?
Zinkie: He will likely be a high-volume bench player when Gordon returns. This is a good time to trade him.
@ljdobson9: Would you rather own Santiago Casilla or Shawn Kelley for the rest of the season?
Zinkie: I'll take Casilla. Kelley is unlikely to earn saves all season.
@yohechris: Would you rather own Devon Travis or Whit Merrifield for the rest of the season?
Zinkie: I will take Travis. Merrifield has a .400 BABIP at the moment.
@Khalchono: Which pitcher should I keep out of Shelby Miller, Yovani Gallardo or Jaime Garcia?
Zinkie: Keep Garcia. But keep a close eye on Miller's start Monday.
Duda on his back injury
Duda discusses his stint on the disabled list
Lucas Duda talks about his back injury which landed him on the disabled list and his timetable for a return
@SslaydenMlb: Is Seung Hwan Oh going to take over closing duties in St. Louis?
Zinkie: He should definitely be rostered in all leagues. Rosenthal's next appearances will be pivotal.
@Itslegend380: Is Dallas Keuchel turning it around?
Zinkie: Yes he is. But not to the level he performed last season.
@einstein2u: Do you have any interest in Tim Lincecum?
Zinkie: In a deep mixed league, I could see adding him to your bench or using him in a favorable matchup.
@polandthunder: Should I stash A.J. Reed over Trea Turner? Who will provide more value this season?
Zinkie: I still prefer Turner, even though I think that Reed may be the first one to get a regular role.
@corycarpenter33: When does Tyler Glasnow get called up?
Zinkie: My best guess (and it is only a guess) is that he debuts prior to the All-Star break.
@JustinHarned: Should I rely on Dexter Fowler for the remainder of the year or sell him now?
Zinkie: You can rely on him. The sell-high price would have to be very good for you to trade him.
Zinkie on buy-low candidates
Zinkie takes a look at buy-low fantasy options
MLB.com fantasy writer Fred Zinkie explains why fans should buy low on Giancarlo Stanton, Adrian Beltre and Andrew Miller
@BillyLessard27 Do you expect that Joey Gallo will get called up soon?
Zinkie: The Rangers' roster is pretty full. I don't expect a promotion soon.
@PedroAlan: I need saves. Should I add Tony Cingrani, Kelley or Brandon Kintzler?
Zinkie: Take Kelley. He won't permanently solve your problem. But he's the best option for now.
@beisbol268: Should I stash Hyun-Jin Ryu now?
Zinkie: I don't think that you should clear space for him. You can stash him if you have an empty spot.
@DaveYoung312: Should I drop Drew Pomeranz for Doug Fister? Zinkie: I would stick with Pomeranz. His strikeout rate gives him plenty of value.
