Description: Andy LaRoche is hitting .333 with three homers this spring.
Insight: He is competing for a backup infield job. If he wins one he likely won't help anyone outside of deep AL-Only leagues.
 
11/20/2010 11:19:00 AM
Description: The Pirates have released 3B Andy LaRoche. The team also released Delwyn Young. SOURCE: ESPN.com
Insight: LaRoche lost his job to Pedro Alvarez; he is still just 27 years old so expect another team to take a flier on him.
 
8/6/2010 11:13:00 AM
Description: Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune Review reports the Cardinals are eyeing Andy LaRoche as a potential trade target.
Insight: LaRoche is hitting just .223 with three home runs and 14 RBI for the Pirates this season, and could fit with the Cardinals at third base with David Freese (ankle) out for the season. (SportsBuff.com)
 
5/26/2010 10:07:00 AM
Description: The Pittsburgh Tribune Review reports LaRoche (back) missed his fourth straight game on Tuesday night due to back stiffness.
Insight: Pirates' manager John Russell said LaRoche could return anytime over the next three days, but the injury is unpredictable. Neil Walker took his place at 3B on Tuesday night, and would likely do so again if he can't go. (SportsBuff.com)
 
4/26/2010 10:13:00 AM
Description: LaRoche (back) went 4-for-4 with two RBI against the Astros on Sunday.
Insight: LaRoche is now 6-for-8 since missing a week with back spasms. He definitely seems to be healthy now, but that does not make him a high-end fantasy option at the hot corner. (SportsBuff.com)
 
4/22/2010 11:57:00 PM
Description: The Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports Pirates' manager John Russell is "hopeful" LaRoche (back) will be able to play in the weekend series against the Astros.
Insight: LaRoche has not played since suffering back spasms last Friday. Hopefully this is not huge news for your fantasy team, unless perhaps you're in an NL-only league. (SportsBuff.com)
 
4/19/2010 12:38:00 PM
Description: The Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports LaRoche (bacK) took swings in an indoor batting cage on Sunday and expects to return to the lineup on Tuesday.
Insight: LaRoche left last Friday's game against the Reds with back spasms. Hopefully this is not huge news for your fantasy team, as he is hitting just .222 this season so far. (SportsBuff.com)
 
4/14/2010 11:25:00 AM
Description: LaRoche went 1-for-4 with his first home run of the season on Tuesday night against San Francisco.
Insight: LaRoche is still not a strong fantasy option, especially with the looming threat of top prospect Pedro Alvarez taking his playing time at some point this season. (SportsBuff.com)
 
3/30/2010 12:17:00 PM
Description: The Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports, with the Pirates batting the pitcher eighth this season, LaRoche will hit in front of him.
Insight: Hopefully this news isn't big for your fantasy team, but hitting in front of the pithcher is not good news for whatever fantasy value LaRoche had. As if the likely eventual arrival of top prospect Pedro Alvarez wasn't enough. (SportsBuff.com)
 
3/24/2010 9:51:00 AM
Description: LaRoche went 0-for-3 against the Astros on Tuesday, dropping his batting average to .194 this spring.
Insight: LaRoche is trying to keep top prospect Pedro Alvarez at bay, and his offensive production so far this spring doesn't help. He is likely to relinquish the starting job at 3B to Alvarez at some point this season. (SportsBuff.com)
 
9/30/2009 1:17:00 AM
Description: LaRoche went 2-for-4 with two doubles on Tuesday against the Cubs.
Insight: LaRoche extended his hitting streak to six straight games and now has 13 hits over that span. (SportsBuff.com)
 
9/29/2009 1:00:00 AM
Description: LaRoche went 5-for-5 with two doubles, two home runs, six RBI and four runs scored on Monday against the Dodgers.
Insight: LaRoche is on a five game hitting streak and is now 7-for-10 with two home runs and eight RBI over his past two games. (SportsBuff.com)
 
8/18/2009 10:56:00 PM
Description: LaRoche went 2-for-2 with a double, RBI and two walks against the Brewers on Tuesday.
Insight: LaRoche is now 4-for-6 with a home run, double and two RBI over his last two games as his average is now up to .260 on the season with six home runs and 43 RBI. (SportsBuff.com)
 
Steady7/5/2009 10:31:00 AM
Description: LaRoche went 2-for-4 with his third homer of the season.
Insight: LaRoche has hits in six of his last seven games and three of those efforts were two-hit games. He is hitting .278 with 34 RBI and 38 runs. (SportsBuff.com)
 
Steady6/29/2009 9:50:00 AM
Description: LaRoche went 2-for-3 and tripled for the second straight game.
Insight: LaRoche has hit just .231 in June, but he has a triple streak going. He has become a decent fantasy option at the hot corner. (SportsBuff.com)
 
Steady6/2/2009 10:08:00 AM
Description: LaRoche continued to upstage his older brother by going 2-for-4 with three RBI. He is hitting .304.
Insight: LaRoche has six hits in his last four games. He only has two homers, but has 13 doubles which suggests that greater power could come. (SportsBuff.com)
