Braves | Bud Norris has terrific outing

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 16:20:12 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Bud Norris pitched seven scoreless innings against the New York Mets Sunday, June 26, to pick up his fourth win of the season. He allowed four hits during the game, while striking out eight batters.

Fantasy Tip: Norris has allowed seven runs in his last five starts and has lowered his ERA to 4.22. He is scheduled to face the Miami Marlins in his next start and can be a decent option in daily fantasy leagues.

Marlins | Miami interested in Bud Norris

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 16:16:08 -0700

The Miami Marlins are among several teams that have expressed interest in trading for Atlanta Braves SP Bud Norris.

Fantasy Tip: The 31-year-old right-hander has posted a 2.43 ERA in 16 appearances (four starts) since May 1, with 17 walks and 35 strikeouts over 40 2/3 innings. He should be owned in NL-only and deep mixed fantasy leagues but only warrants usage in DFS if he has a favorable matchup.

Marlins | Marcell Ozuna out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 12:36:18 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna is not playing Tuesday, June 21, against the Atlanta Braves. Ozuna's replacement, OF Ichiro Suzuki, will lead off against Braves SP Bud Norris.

Fantasy Tip: Ozuna is having a superb season to date with a .322-15-43 line, and all this is for Ozuna is a scheduled night off. Suzuki has been decent as of late and is still a good bet in daily formats. His playing time is uneven, so DFS is your best bet for Suzuki and he is a valuable start tonight in the leadoff spot.

Marlins | Derek Dietrich batting seventh again

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 12:27:50 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Derek Dietrich, who had been hitting leadoff in recent games, will bat seventh once again against Atlanta Braves SP Bud Norris.

Fantasy Tip: Dietrich has just returned from an injured foot, so the team may be opting to keep him out of high-profile batting situations. It also enables Ichiro Suzuki to bat leadoff, which is a no-brainer given his warm bat. Dietrich is still worth the daily and regular-format starts with his .297-3-24 line.

Braves | Mike Foltynewicz to DL

Sat, 04 Jun 2016 09:15:54 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz (elbow) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with bone chips in his elbow Saturday, June 4. RP John Gant was recalled from the minors in a corresponding move. SP Bud Norris will make the spot start against the Los Angeles Dodgers Saturday. An MRI exam and CT scan showed no structural damage in Foltynewicz's elbow.

Fantasy Tip: Folty had two nice outings back-to-back before his injury, allowing only two earned runs in 11 2/3 innings while striking out 11. His ERA on the year sits at 3.51, but he's a matchup play, at best, in deep mixed and NL-only leagues when he's healthy. Norris should be avoided in all leagues in his spot start, especially since he'll likely be on a short leash out of the bullpen.

Braves | Bud Norris starting Saturday

Sat, 04 Jun 2016 09:01:34 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Bud Norris will be the starting pitcher against the Los Angeles Dodgers Saturday, June 4.

Fantasy Tip: Norris has been used as mostly as a relief pitcher this season but has started a few games. Norris has a 5.71 ERA in 2016 and probably should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

Braves | Mike Foltynewicz scratched Saturday

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 19:52:37 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz (elbow) will miss his start Saturday, June 4, because of elbow soreness. SP Bud Norris or SP John Gant will start in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Foltynewicz has been solid in four his six starts this season, and he is worth hanging on to in NL-only leagues until more details about his injury emerge. Norris and Gant can be ignored in all formats.

Braves | Mike Foltynewicz called up

Mon, 02 May 2016 10:24:42 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz was called up from Class AAA Gwinnett in order to start against the New York Mets to replace SP Bud Norris in the starting rotation Monday, May 2. Norris will work in long relief for now. Foltynewicz had a 2.05 ERA with 20 strikeouts, 14 walks and 12 hits allowed in 22 innings over four starts for Gwinnett.

Fantasy Tip: Outside of NL-only leagues, Folty is a guy to watch, as his strikeout upside is tempered by home run allowance and shaky command. His dominant stuff has yet to translate at the major league level, and you'll likely need to remain patient with him.

Braves | Bud Norris could be booted from rotation

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 11:36:08 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Bud Norris could be bumped from the starting rotation soon, and SP Mike Foltynewicz looks like he could be the favorite to take Norris' spot. Foltynewicz could start in Norris' spot against the New York Mets Monday, May 2. Foltynewicz was scratched from his start at Class AAA Gwinnett Friday, April 29. Norris has an 8.74 ERA in his first five starts.

Fantasy Tip: Norris has zero fantasy upside at this point and should be left to the waiver wire. Folty appears to be past his blood clot issues and had 20 K's in 22 innings for Gwinnett. However, but he also has at least four walks in three of his four outings in the minors. He has raw strikeout stuff but allows a lot of fly balls. Take a wait-and-see approach. Only add him in NL-only leagues for now if he gets the opportunity.
