Braves | Jeff Francoeur back in lineup Sunday

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 07:54:53 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Jeff Francoeur is back in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon Sunday, June 26, batting seventh and playing left field. In addition, C A.J. Pierzynski is batting sixth and starting behind the plate, while INF Chase d'Arnaud is batting eighth and playing shortstop. C Tyler Flowers and SS Erick Aybar are receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: D'Arnaud is batting .257 with five doubles and five RBI in 74 at-bats this month and could be a productive source of cap relief in DFS. Pierzynski is only batting .195 this month but is a lifetime .277 hitter versus Colon in 65 at-bats, with three doubles, two home runs and five RBI.

Braves | Erick Aybar out against the Mets

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 07:25:25 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Erick Aybar is not in the starting lineup Sunday, June 26. INF Chase d'Arnaud is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Aybar has turned it around in June with a .300/.391/.425 line, but it has only resulted in four runs and four RBI. He is a desperation starting option in deep formats. D'Arnaud offers little in the power department (.371 slugging percentage), but he sits with a .282 batting average and .360 on-base percentage, which makes him a viable depth piece in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues.

Braves | Mallex Smith, Jace Peterson in lineup

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 07:52:44 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Mallex Smith and 2B Jace Peterson are back in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom Sunday, June 19. In addition, INF Chase d'Arnaud is starting at third base and batting seventh this afternoon. OF Jeff Francoeur is receiving the afternoon off.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is being used as the leadoff hitter today but he is just 5-for-45 (.111) in that role, so he should be avoided in all fantasy formats. Peterson is batting .360 in 25 at-bats over the last two weeks and makes an excellent source of cap relief in daily games.

Braves | Three Braves out Saturday

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 14:28:24 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Mallex Smith, 3B Adonis Garcia (ankle) and 2B Jace Peterson are out of the lineup Saturday, June 18, with 2B Chase d'Arnaud leading off, OF Jeff Francoeur cleaning up and 3B Brandon Snyder hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: With lefty Steven Matz on the hill, d'Arnaud and Frenchy are low-end options as both have success against lefties. Snyder has just nine at-bats on the year and isn't worth consideration.

Braves | Adonis Garcia out vs. Mets

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 12:23:24 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Adonis Garcia (ankle) is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 17. INF Chase d'Arnaud is starting at third base and batting sixth against New York Mets SP Matt Harvey Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia is day-to-day with the ankle injury. He is nothing more than a low-end option in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, and d'Arnaud is even lower on the totem pole in those deep setups. Don't fret fading d'Arnaud in daily contests Friday.

Braves | Erick Aybar sitting vs. Reds

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 09:00:23 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Erick Aybar is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 16. SS Chase d'Arnaud is starting at the 6 and is hitting eighth against Cincinnati Reds SP Dan Straily.

Fantasy Tip: D'Arnaud has limited offensive upside but has been hot at the plate recently, hitting .283 this month with four RBI in 53 at-bats. He's yet to homer, though, in parts of five major league seasons, so he profiles as more of a desperation daily selection, especially while hitting low in the order.

Braves | Jace Peterson resting vs. southpaw

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 12:09:51 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson is not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds left-handed SP Brandon Finnegan Tuesday, June 14. SS Chase d'Arnaud is starting at the keystone and is hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: D'Arnaud has picked it up at the plate of late and is now up to a .309/.362/.402 slash line, but he still has no home runs and only three RBI. That shows how limited he is in the power department, so despite a nice lineup spot he's nothing more than a low-end daily pick at the shortstop position.

Braves | Adonis Garcia out vs. Padres

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 17:02:07 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Adonis Garcia is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 7. SS Chase d'Arnaud is starting at third base and is hitting second against San Diego Padres SP Colin Rea. Also, SS Daniel Castro draws into the lineup at the 6 and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: D'Arnaud is on a nice little streak here, but his bat is limited for fantasy owners, and he's nothing more than a deep sleeper selection in daily games without much power to speak of. Castro is a similar defense-first player and should be avoided everywhere Tuesday.

Braves | Chase d'Arnaud effective of late

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 09:49:47 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Chase d'Arnaud is 9-for-25 (.360) with two doubles in six games in June.

Fantasy Tip: D'Arnaud isn't much of a hitter and possesses very little power, which makes him only attractive for playing time right now in NL-only leagues with Erick Aybar on the DL.

Braves | Chase d'Arnaud hot right now

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 15:34:12 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Chase d'Arnaud is hitting .372 (16-for-43) in his last 13 games.

Fantasy Tip: He's raised his average to .351 on the year, but he has no home runs or RBI and has just 65 plate appearances. D'Arnaud is unlikely to keep the hot hitting up and won't see regular playing time throughout the season. He's strictly an NL-only candidate and remains a low-end play in daily formats even while hitting second Friday night.
