Braves | A.J. Pierzynski sitting vs. Pirates

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 13:25:21 -0700

Atlanta Braves C A.J. Pierzynski is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 26. C Ryan Lavarnway is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Pierzynski ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is bouncing back slightly after a disastrous May. Still, his seasonal value is tied to being a low-end option in two-catcher, cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. Lavarnway ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a career .192 hitter through 312 at-bats, so FantasyScore players can fade him without concern.

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 13:56:19 -0700

Atlanta Braves C A.J. Pierzynski is not in the starting lineup Sunday, June 21. C Ryan Lavarnway is catching for the Braves.

Fantasy Tip: It appears to be a normal day off for Pierzynski ($3,300, 6.6% of cap), so take him out of your lineup. As for Lavarnway, keep him seated and look elsewhere for your replacement.

Braves | Christian Bethancourt sent down

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 09:14:01 -0700

Atlanta Braves C Christian Bethancourt was optioned to Class AAA Gwinnett Monday, June 15. C Ryan Lavarnway was brought up from Gwinnett in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Bethancourt really struggled with a .208-1-9 line. A.J. Pierzynski, who has slowed after a hot start, has vastly outplayed the developing prospect. At $4,200 (8.4% of cap), Pierzynski's .204-1-7 line since April just doesn't cut it on FantasyScore.

Baltimore Orioles C Ryan Lavarnway will start at catcher and bat seventh in the order Sunday, May 24, against the Miami Marlins. C Caleb Joseph will be available off the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Lavarnway ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has just one multi-hit game and one run scored on the season. FantasyScore owners need to look elsewhere.

Orioles | Caleb Joseph starting

Sun, 10 May 2015 08:11:49 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Caleb Joseph will start behind the plate Sunday, May 10, against the New York Yankees. C Ryan Lavarnway comes back out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Joseph ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is 4-for-8 in his last two games with one double and one home run. Joseph is worth a flier in GPP tournaments while in the midst of a hot streak.

Orioles | Caleb Joseph sitting out

Sat, 09 May 2015 08:24:40 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Caleb Joseph is not in the starting lineup Saturday, May 9. C Ryan Lavarnway will be the starting catcher for the Orioles.

Fantasy Tip: Joseph ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Lavarnway ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has gone only 3-for-19 at the plate this season and is not the best option for owners on FantasyScore.

Orioles | Ryan Lavarnway starting at catcher

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 08:05:39 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Ryan Lavarnway will start behind the dish Sunday, April 26, against the Boston Red Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Lavarnway ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has just one hit through 14 plate appearances to begin the season. Lavarnway has hit .210 in 110 career plate appearances against left-handed pitchers, and he shouldn't be considered at all with Wade Miley on the mound for the Red Sox.

Orioles | Ryan Lavarnway added to roster

Sun, 05 Apr 2015 17:32:49 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Ryan Lavarnway was added to the opening day roster Sunday, April 5.

Fantasy Tip: Lavarnway joins C Caleb Joseph and C Steve Clevenger on the Orioles 25-man roster, but Clevenger is expected to be optioned to Triple-A Norfolk once 1B Chris Davis is activated off the restricted list Tuesday, April 7. Orioles catchers should be avoided until C Matt Wieters (elbow) is able to return.
