Braves | Kelly Johnson to move around

Wed, 06 Jan 2016 16:44:12 -0800

Atlanta Braves 2B Kelly Johnson is expected to share time with 3B Adonis Garcia at third base in 2016, and Johnson could also play other infield positions and left field.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson returns to an Atlanta team that he hit nine home runs with in the first half of the season. He can be useful as a utility player with some pop, but the fact that he likely won't be an everyday player makes him strictly a middle infield option in NL-only leagues.

Braves | Adonis Garcia hits two homers

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 13:43:09 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Adonis Garcia hit two home runs Sunday, Oct. 4, in a 6-0 shutout of the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 1 of a doubleheader.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) had a .273-8-23 line through 56 games, which translates fairly well to a full season. Garcia projects as a hitter who will deliver decent average and power for 2016, so keep an eye on his chances.

Braves | Adonis Garcia in lineup Saturday

Sat, 26 Sep 2015 12:32:16 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Adonis Garcia will bat cleanup and play third base against Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino Saturday, Sept. 26. INF Hector Olivera is not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is batting .342 with one home run and 12 RBIs during the month of September, making him a decent value play in FantasyScore this evening.

Braves | Nick Swisher not starting Friday

Fri, 18 Sep 2015 12:46:55 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Nick Swisher is not starting Friday, Sept. 18, and OF Adonis Garcia is in Swisher's outfield spot. Garcia is hitting fourth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has an .059 mark in the last week and his average is tailing off, so he is out of the lineup despite his switch-hitting capability. Garcia ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is hitting .312-6-15 at home and is doing well in his extended tryout with the team. He's definitely worth starting at the FantasyScore price.

Braves | Hector Olivera batting second vs. Jays

Thu, 17 Sep 2015 12:01:46 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Hector Olivera is starting at third base and batting second against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marco Estrada Thursday, Sept. 17. 3B Adonis Garcia is not in the starting lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Olivera ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) hasn't hit the ground running with a .621 OPS through his first 13 games with the Braves, and he shouldn't be viewed as anything more than a lineup filler at FantasyScore. It isn't a great matchup, either, as Estrada ($7,000, 14.0% of cap) has held opponents to three runs or fewer in 14 of his past 16 outings.

Braves | Hector Olivera scratched

Sun, 06 Sep 2015 09:55:48 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Hector Olivera (foot) was scratched from the starting lineup Sunday, Sept. 6, because of a foot injury. 3B Adonis Garcia will take his place in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to look for an update on Olivera over the next day or so. Garcia ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is hitting .267 with one home run and two RBI over the past week but may not be a great option.

Braves | Adonis Garcia starting at the hot corner

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 12:34:25 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Adonis Garcia is starting at third base and batting fifth against Washington Nationals SP Tanner Roark Friday, Sept. 4. 2B Hector Olivera is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has flashed some pop, but he has done most of his damage against lefties, so it isn't a great matchup for him Friday. FantasyScore players should view Garcia as nothing more than a flier. He projects to split time with Olivera ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) down the stretch, and neither should be lineup fixtures in the majority of seasonal leagues at this point.

Braves | Nick Markakis taking day off

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 09:05:36 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Nick Markakis is not in the lineup against Miami Marlins left-handed SP Adam Conley Wednesday, Sept. 2. OF Nick Swisher moves over to right field and is hitting fifth, while 3B Adonis Garcia is starting in left field and hitting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Both Swisher ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) and Garcia ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) qualify as sleeper plays worth considering against the hittable Conley this afternoon, with Swisher likely giving you more bang for your buck.

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.
