I am excited to introduce our weekly fantasy baseball Interleague Report. With interleague play now being year-round, we can benefit from keeping tabs on teams that have played or will be playing games in opposing leagues. The plan is to give you helpful info whether it relates to daily or weekly lineups, waiver or FAAB pickups, or changes in positional eligibility. The Interleague Report will cover last week, this week, and the following week.

  • The big one here is Victor Martinez. We will have to monitor the situation, but I do not think he plays all five games at catcher. I think he definitely catches against the lone lefty (Kershaw), but my guess is that he gets one or two other starts behind the dish.
  • Dunn might get a start at first against one of the righties, but it could be just pinch-hitting duties for the Big Donkey and Konerko.
  • Who knows what Joe Maddon’s lineup will look like next week? I do not, but I would guess Matt Joyce and David DeJesus each get an outfield start against a righty, with Ben Zobrist moving to the outfield and Logan Forsythe getting a start at second against Tony Cingrani.

Unless I missed something, Jordan Schafer is on Atlanta, so it would be hard for Milwaukee to use him in RF.

Nope, I'm missing something. I meant Logan Schafer. Thanks.

Looks like the Phils are going with Gwynn at OF and moving Brown to DH. This is good news for Cliff Lee. This is also good news for Tanner Scheppers.

As an NL-Only leaguer I find this is a great addition to BP's Fantasy coverage. Hopefully it will help me eek-out some extra counting stats that will put me over the top.

Thanks! After the beginning of last season (as an AL and an NL only-ier), I realized that I wasn't looking at this as much as I should. The hope is to get better info as the teams show their hands more.
