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.

Braves | A.J. Pierzynski sitting out

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 09:09:37 -0700

Atlanta Braves C A.J. Pierzynski is not in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Dillon Gee Sunday, June 14. C Christian Bethancourt will be the starting catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Pierzynski ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) probably will return to the lineup in the next game or two. Bethancourt ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has six hits and two RBI in his last four games and could be a cheaper catcher option for owners on FantasyScore.

Braves | A.J. Pierzynski out of lineup Tuesday

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 12:22:42 -0700

Atlanta Braves C A.J. Pierzynski is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 9, against the San Diego Padres. C Christian Bethancourt is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Pierzynski ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is likely out of the lineup with righty James Shields pitching for San Diego. Bethancourt ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) gives the Braves the righty vs. righty matchup, and he is 4-for-8 in his last two games. He's definitely worth the start.

Braves | Christian Bethancourt hits first homer

Sat, 06 Jun 2015 20:43:16 -0700

Atlanta Braves C Christian Bethancourt hit a walk-off home run, his first career home run, in a 5-4 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates Saturday, June 6. He finished 3-for-4 with two RBIs and two runs scored.

Fantasy Tip: Bethancourt's ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) first homer was certainly memorable, but for fantasy purposes, he remains an unexciting option. He is hitting just .205 and hasn't shown enough consistency to warrant consideration at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Bethancourt ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has just three multi-hit games on the season, with the most coming May 21. Bethancourt can be completely ignored for FantasyScore purposes.

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 10:20:54 -0700

Atlanta Braves C A.J. Pierzynski is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 3. C Christian Bethancourt is starting and hitting eighth in the batting order against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa.

Fantasy Tip: Bethancourt ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is hitting only .175 (14-for-80) in limited duty, and De La Rosa has been tough on right-handed hitters all year. Avoid Bethancourt today.

Braves | Christian Bethancourt catching Sunday

Sun, 31 May 2015 12:11:16 -0700

Atlanta Braves C A.J. Pierzynski is not in the starting lineup against the San Francisco Giants Sunday, May 31. C Christian Bethancourt will start behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: It wouldn't be a surprise if Bethancourt ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) begins seeing an increase in playing time as a result of A.J. Pierzynski's ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) recent offensive struggles. After hitting .135 in April, Bethancourt is batting .231 this month, while Pierzynski is only batting .131 in May following a .422 April.

Fantasy Tip: Bethancourt ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is hitting just .181 this season and isn't worth the plug and play on FantasyScore.
