Braves | Shelby Miller flirts with no-hitter

Sun, 17 May 2015 19:52:12 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Shelby Miller came within one out of a no-hitter in a 6-0 win over the Miami Marlins Sunday, May 17, allowing two hits and striking out four in a complete-game shutout.

Fantasy Tip: Miller ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) has been superb this year. He owns a 1.33 ERA and hasn't allowed more than two earned runs in any start this year. He is providing ace-caliber production at FantasyScore for a discount price.

Braves | Shelby Miller in dominant groove

Wed, 06 May 2015 13:26:31 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Shelby Miller is 6-1 with a 1.58 ERA over his past 11 starts, and he has held opposing hitters to a .183 batting average. He has pitched six or more innings in eight of those starts and allowed two or fewer runs in 10 of 11 outings. His offense failed to score a single run while he was in the game in the five games he failed to win during the stretch. Miller adopted a sinker from Boston Red Sox SP Justin Masterson when they both pitched for the St. Louis Cardinals last season, and Miller began throwing the sinker a lot and became more efficient and capable of pitching deeper into games.

Fantasy Tip: Miller ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) credits adding the sinker to his arsenal around the 2014 All-Star break for his improved mound work. He struggled late in his rookie year with arm fatigue and then looked to be suffering through a sophomore slump early in 2014. Now, Miller appears like he could pitch his way into the conversation of being a top-tier arm. Until he proves otherwise, Miller is an excellent FantasyScore option, especially at his modest cap hit.

Braves | Personal catchers for Braves?

Tue, 05 May 2015 16:15:09 -0700

Atlanta Braves Cs A.J. Pierzynski and Christian Bethancourt could be paired with SPs Shelby Miller and Julio Teheran, respectively, according to manager Fredi Gonzalez. Miller has worked with Pierzynski since the two were teammates with the St. Louis Cardinals last year. Miller's start Tuesday is his ninth career start with Pierzynski catching him, and Miller had a 4.29 ERA in six games with Pierzynski catching him last year. Teheran has made eight career starts with Bethancourt as his catcher and has a 2.23 ERA in those games.

Fantasy Tip: Pierzynski ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has seen the most of the playing time behind the plate thanks to his ridiculous start to the year, however, he's gone hitless the last two games. Pierzynski can't maintain that pace, and as soon as he starts slowing down, Bethancourt could see more of an even time split.
