Braves | Braves catchers to split playing time

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 15:24:05 -0700

Atlanta Braves Cs A.J. Pierzynski and Anthony Recker will split playing time with C Tyler Flowers (hand) landing on the disabled list, according to interim manager Brian Snitker.

Fantasy Tip: This was basically the same setup Atlanta had in place while Flowers was active. Even with Recker sliding into the equation, this isn't really a situation worth monitoring, as the former New York Met is below the Mendoza Line for his career and has zero potential to contribute. Pierzynski, meanwhile, is on his last legs at this point.

Braves | Several Atlanta regulars resting Sunday

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 07:23:22 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Gordon Beckham, SS Erick Aybar and C A.J. Pierzynski are not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Jon Gray Sunday, July 17. INF/OF Jace Peterson will bat leadoff and play second base, INF Chase d'Arnaud will bat second and play shortstop, OF Jeff Francoeur will bat fifth and play left field and C Anthony Recker will start behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Francoeur has hit safely in eight of his last nine games and is worth considering as a value play in daily fantasy contests, while Peterson, d'Arnaud and Recker should be viewed strictly as a source of desperation salary cap relief.

Braves | Tyler Flowers to the DL

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 20:37:02 -0700

Atlanta Braves C Tyler Flowers (hand) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday, July 15, and in a corresponding move, C Anthony Recker was recalled from Class AAA Gwinnett.

Fantasy Tip: Recker and A.J. Pierzynski will likely split time behind the plate with Flowers out, but neither player has much fantasy value.

Braves | Tyler Flowers has broken hand

Tue, 12 Jul 2016 14:09:26 -0700

Atlanta Braves C Tyler Flowers (hand) has been diagnosed with a broken hand and will miss at least six weeks. C Anthony Recker likely will be recalled from Class AAA Gwinnett when Flowers is placed on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: A.J. Pierzynski likely will receive more starts with Flowers sidelined for multiple weeks. He is hitting only .205 with zero home runs and 18 RBI this season and is not a strong option. Owners in NL-only leagues could consider adding Recker if they need help at the position.

Mets | Travis d'Arnaud sitting out vs. Red Sox

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 07:52:08 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 30. C Anthony Recker is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Boston Red Sox SP Wade Miley Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid d'Arnaud ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Sunday. Recker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore Sunday, and you should probably aim higher.

Mets | Travis d'Arnaud not in lineup

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 12:46:22 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26. C Anthony Recker is behind the plate and is batting eighth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerad Eickhoff.

Fantasy Tip: Recker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap), who's hitting .138 (9-for-65) with two home runs, remains a desperation deep sleeper selection on FantasyScore despite facing a rookie making only his second major league start tonight.

Mets | Travis d'Arnaud out of Sunday lineup

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 13:34:14 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud was not in the lineup Sunday, Aug. 22, against the Colorado Rockies. C Anthony Recker batted eighth against Rockies SP David Hale.

Fantasy Tip: It appears d'Arnaud ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) got a normal day off. He should be back in the lineup for the next game, but keep an eye out if he gets another day off after this.

Mets | Travis d'Arnaud resting Friday

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 13:21:46 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 14. C Anthony Recker is starting and is hitting eighth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP J.A. Happ.

Fantasy Tip: Recker is hitting a measly .123 (7-for-57) with two home runs and three RBI on the season with 24 strikeouts. Avoid him for your daily lineups tonight.

Mets | NY to be cautious with Travis d'Arnaud

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 09:44:38 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud (elbow) will return from the disabled list Friday, July 31, but manager Terry Collins said the team will be cautious with him upon his return. "He won't be a four (games) in a row guy," Collins said of d'Arnaud. "He might play two and a day off. It'll all depend on how he feels." C Kevin Plawecki is likely to remain on the major league roster with C Anthony Recker being sent down. d'Arnaud hasn't played since June 20 and was hitting .296 with four home runs and 17 RBI.

Fantasy Tip: d'Arnaud ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has been a fine fantasy catching commodity for his bat, but he just hasn't been able to stay healthy enough to be viable for fake owners. Now that he's back, he could be a great addition to a team in need of catching, and he could be a great value play on FantasyScore, too, when he's in the lineup.

Mets | Anthony Recker draws into the lineup

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 15:07:01 -0700

New York Mets C Kevin Plawecki is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 29. C Anthony Recker is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against San Diego Padres SP Tyson Ross Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Plawecki ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. He remains a low-end catcher in all fantasy leagues, and he should be reserved for NL-only formats at this point. Recker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is batting .130 this season, and for comparison sake, Mets SP Bartolo Colon is batting .139. Aim higher than Recker in FantasyScore contests Wednesday.
