Braves | Mike Foltynewicz to rehab Thursday

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 20:02:46 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz (elbow) will make what is expected to be his final minor-league rehab start for Class AAA Gwinnett Thursday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Foltynewicz might be back in early July, but it's uncertain if he'll be back in the rotation, long relief, etc. With the team's injury issues in the starting rotation, he is likely to be slotted back in, but he remains nothing more than an option in the deepest of NL-only fantasy formats.

Braves | Mike Foltynewicz ready for rehab start

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 13:38:20 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz (elbow) will make a start with Class AAA Gwinnett this weekend and will likely require at least one more outing before rejoining the Braves.

Fantasy Tip: When healthy, Foltynewicz is nothing more than a cavernous mixed and NL-only option at this stage of the game. Take a wait-and-see approach with him elsewhere. Stay tuned for updates while he works his way back to the majors.

Braves | Mike Foltynewicz throwing off mound

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 13:54:19 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz (elbow) has thrown off a mound and will face hitters this weekend and then move to a couple of rehab starts. He said he's been feeling good.

Fantasy Tip: Folty hasn't been great but hasn't been terrible in his six starts for Atlanta this year (3.51 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, 7.6 K/9). But on this bad ball club and with him still maturing as a pitcher, he's best left to NL-only leagues when he's back in the rotation. Take a wait-and-see approach with him elsewhere.

Braves | Mike Foltynewicz progressing well

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 14:09:31 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz (elbow) is progressing well and is expected to face hitters by the end of the week.

Fantasy Tip: Foltynewicz is likely best left to deep mixed and NL-only leagues, and it isn't out of the question to be selective with who you start him against. Stay tuned for updates.

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 | 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 sharp in win

Mon, 30 May 2016 16:27:58 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz improved to 2-2 after beating the San Francisco Giants in his start Monday, May 30. He tossed six solid innings of one-run ball, surrendering only three hits and two walks, while striking out four.

Fantasy Tip: The 24-year-old has been the definition of a mixed bag in 2016 so far, as he's had two outings where he couldn't make it beyond the fourth inning, and his other four starts saw the right-hander yield two runs or fewer. He's definitely exhibited some intriguing potential, and while he still might be inconsistent for most mixed leagues, Foltynewicz could definitely be a worthwhile pickup for NL-only formats.

Braves | Mike Foltynewicz bounces back

Wed, 25 May 2016 21:53:14 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz bounced back from a poor outing in his start Wednesday, May 25, against the Milwaukee Brewers. He went 5 2/3 innings, surrendering only one run on four hits and four walks. He also had seven strikeouts in the no-decision.

Fantasy Tip: Despite an off performance his last time out, the former first-round draft pick has actually provided mostly quality work since coming up, as this was his third start in five tries in which he allowed three runs or fewer. Owners in NL-only leagues should check him out despite the fact he pitches for the worst team in baseball; he can be a nice cheap source for strikeouts, too.

Braves | Mike Foltynewicz struggles Thursday

Thu, 19 May 2016 19:10:57 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz (1-2) allowed five runs (four earned) on seven hits over three innings in a loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates Thursday, May 19. He had no walks and one strikeout.

Fantasy Tip: Foltynewicz was unable to duplicate the success he had in his last outing against the Kansas City Royals Saturday, May 14, when he tossed eight scoreless innings. He's only worth rostering in deep NL-only seasonal leagues and should only be used in DFS when the matchup is extremely favorable.

Braves | Career night for Mike Folynewicz

Sat, 14 May 2016 19:41:05 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz threw a career-high eight scoreless innings in a win over the Kansas City Royals Saturday, May 14, allowing seven hits and striking out four.

Fantasy Tip: Foltynewicz has two strong outings in three starts this year, and the 24-year-old could be worth a shot in NL-only formats. Just don't expect a lot of wins from a guy playing for a terrible Atlanta squad.
