Braves | Adonis Garcia playing hot corner

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 10:37:53 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Adonis Garcia is back in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Dan Haren Saturday, Aug. 22, batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is batting .231 with two home runs and six RBIs in 65 at-bats this month. He is expected to lose his starting job at third base when the Braves promote 3B Hector Olivera from the minors next week, although he could see playing time in left field.

Braves | Adonis Garcia out Friday

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 10:54:01 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Adonis Garcia is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 21. SS Pedro Ciriaco is starting at the hot corner and hitting sixth against Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks.

Fantasy Tip: Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) hasn't been bad in limited playing time this month (.286-1-5), but he remains limited offensively and should only be a deep FantasyScore sleeper used to give you salary cap relief if you're desperate.

Braves | Adonis Garcia to play LF?

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 17:10:33 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Adonis Garcia could wind up splitting time in left field with OFs Michael Bourn and Jonny Gomes after the team promotes 3B Hector Olivera from the minors. The move is expected to take place Monday, Aug. 24, before a homestand against the Colorado Rockies.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($3,500, 7.0% of cap), Bourn ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) and Gomes ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) won't have much value outside of NL-only seasonal leagues once Olivera is promoted. FantasyScore owners may want to consider one of these three players only if they have a favorable matchup but none of them should be relied upon on a consistent basis.

Braves | Adonis Garcia earns another start

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 13:05:40 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Adonis Garcia is playing left field and batting fourth against Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman Wednesday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has gone 5-for-17 over six games in the majors this season with three runs, two home runs and two RBI. His price and spot in the lineup makes him worthy of considering as a low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests Wednesday. NL-only players looking for a boost should snap him up quickly, too. There could be more than just fleeting value from the minor league veteran.

Braves | Adonis Garcia earning more time

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 18:57:10 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Adonis Garcia went 1-for-4 with a go-ahead solo home run, the first of his career, in a 3-2 win over the St. Louis Cardinals Sunday, July 26, and manager Fredi Gonzalez said Garcia's bat needs to be in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia is 30 years old, so he isn't an up-and-coming prospect. However, his performance is worth keeping an eye on, and he could become a useful value play at FantasyScore if he does become a regular starter going forward.

Braves | Chris Johnson not in the lineup

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 09:08:27 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Chris Johnson is not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha Sunday, July 26. 3B Adonis Garcia will start at third base and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) should return to the lineup in the near future. Garcia has gone 1-for-4 since joining the Braves and should not be a fantasy option at this point.

Mon, 25 Feb 2013 10:34:02 -0800

New York Yankees OFs Matt Diaz and Juan Rivera will see more playing time in the outfield with OF Curtis Granderson (forearm) out until May with a broken forearm. OFs Zoilo Almonte, Melky Mesa and Adonis Garcia could also figure into the mix. INF Eduardo Nunez will not be used in the outfield, according to general manager Brian Cashman. The injury to Granderson likely cements OF Brett Gardner as the starting center fielder.
