Braves | Jordan Walden, Luis Avilan helping to form new Big 3 in bullpen

Wed, 26 Jun 2013 10:55:02 -0700

Atlanta Braves RP Jordan Walden has allowed just one hit and two walks, with 11 strikeouts, in 11 1/3 scoreless innings (11 games) since returning from the DL. His .163 opponents' average is tied for second-best in the NL, behind Los Angeles Dodgers RP Paco Rodriguez. RP Luis Avilan has allowed just two hits and three walks, with nine strikeouts, in his last 15 appearances (12 2/3 frames).

Fantasy Tip: Perhaps Walden is aligning himself as the fill-in for Craig Kimbrel, should it ever come to that. The lefty Avilan might earn situational duty in that event.

Braves | Craig Kimbrel unavailable

Mon, 20 May 2013 15:49:29 -0700

Atlanta Braves RP Craig Kimbrel is unavailable to pitch Monday, May 20, after saving all three games over the weekend. RPs Luis Avilan and Cory Gearrin will be mixed and matched late in the game if a save situation arises Monday against the Minnesota Twins.

Fantasy Tip: Avilan and Gearrin shouldn't be added for one day in case either get thrown into a save situation against the Twins. Both pitchers will be used heavily in setup roles now that Jonny Venters (elbow) and Eric O'Flaherty (elbow) are out for the season.
