Braves | Ender Inciarte unlikely to be moved

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 06:15:28 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte likely will not be traded this season because general manager John Coppolella said the team is happy with how Inciarte has performed. He said Inciarte has played well defensively and is a better hitter than he has shown.

Fantasy Tip: Inciarte is hitting only .242 with one home run and 12 RBI but should continue to be an everyday player at this point. Owners in most leagues should be able to find better options to use in their fantasy lineups.

Braves | Several Braves could be dealt

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 14:38:03 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Jeff Francoeur, 2B Gordon Beckham and RP Jim Johnson, who are all pending free agents, are the prime focus of Atlanta's trade talks as the deadline nears. OFs Ender Inciarte and Nick Markakis are also involved, but there's less of a chance they'll be traded.

Fantasy Tip: Francoeur, Beckham and Johnson aren't likely to be anything more than depth for any team that acquires them in a trade this summer. Francoeur can be useful in NL-only and daily leagues in the right lefty matchups. Beckham contributes modestly across all categories for NL-only middle infield depth. Right now, Johnson is a candidate for saves in Atlanta with Arodys Vizcaino shelved, but he's already shown he's a shaky option there.

Braves | Gordon Beckham starting at shortstop

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 13:05:03 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Gordon Beckham is starting at shortstop and is hitting second in his return from the disabled list against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel Thursday, July 7. SS Erick Aybar starts on the bench. Also, OF Ender Inciarte moves down to No. 8 in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham had earned himself regular playing time with a hot bat before his injury, but it remains to be seen how much he'll play now, as he'll likely bounce around the infield. His offensive upside is limited, however, making him more of a low-end DFS option and NL-only commodity. Inciarte hasn't worked out well for Atlanta this year and is hitting just .231 with a homer, 11 RBI and eight steals. He's a low-end DFS pick.

Braves | Ender Inciarte back in the lineup

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 12:50:04 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte (groin) is batting second against Philadelphia Phillies SP Zach Eflin Tuesday, July 5.

Fantasy Tip: Inciarte missed the previous three games with the injury, but if you were relying on him in seasonal leagues, you can return him to your starting lineup. It's been a down year for the speedster, though, as Inciarte has an underwhelming .236/.307/.305 slash line. He's best left to deep mixed leagues.

Braves | Ender Inciarte out again

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 14:30:06 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte (groin) is out for the second straight game Sunday, July 3, against the Miami Marlins. OF Chase d'Arnaud is in the lineup and hitting second against Marlins SP Adam Conley.

Fantasy Tip: Keep Inciarte off your active rosters until he is deemed safe to return, and even then you may want to wait a game or two. As for d'Arnaud, he is hitting .271-1-9 but has six stolen bases. D'Arnaud's fantasy value for now largely revolves around speed, but he is part-timer at best.

Braves | Ender Inciarte hopes to return Sunday

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 17:11:10 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte (groin) said he hopes to return to the lineup Sunday, July 3, against the Miami Marlins.

Fantasy Tip: Inciarte is batting just .234 with no homers, so his potential return isn't particularly noteworthy for fantasy owners.

Braves | Jace Peterson back in lineup Saturday

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 10:12:38 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson is back in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez Saturday, July 2, with INF/OF Chase d'Arnaud batting second and playing center field. In addition, C A.J. Pierzynski will hit seventh and start behind the plate, while OF Emilio Bonifacio hits eighth and plays left field. OFs Jeff Francoeur and Ender Inciarte and C Tyler Flowers are receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson is batting .393 in 28 at-bats over the past week and is hitting .348 with a home run and six RBI in just 23 at-bats versus the Fish this season, so he's worth considering in DFS as a source of productive cap relief. D'artaud, Pierzynski and Bonifacio can be ignored in DFS this afternoon.

Braves | Ender Inciarte suffers injury

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 05:47:37 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte (groin) left the game early Friday, July 1, because of a strained right groin.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see when Inciarte will be able to return. Chase d'Arnaud and Jeff Francoeur are options to start in the outfield if Inciarte misses time, but neither player is a strong mixed league option.

Braves | Jace Peterson sitting vs. Marlins

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 13:43:36 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 1. INF Chase d'Arnaud is starting at second base and batting second against Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino Friday, and Braves OF Ender Inciarte slides up into the leadoff spot Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson has hit in the leadoff spot in each of his past 10 games and returned a .357/.386/.548 slash line with three runs, two home runs and four RBI. He's currently a viable option in deep mixed and NL-only leagues. Inciarte isn't impacted significantly by the one-spot boost in the lineup, and d'Arnaud should be viewed as a potential low-priced flier in daily contests Friday.

Braves | Ender Inciarte gets day off

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 14:28:02 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte (rest) is not in the lineup Thursday, June 30, against the Miami Marlins. 2B Chase d'Arnaud will start in center field and hit second opposite SP Wei-Yin Chen.

Fantasy Tip: With a lefty on the hill, Inciarte will receive a day off. In his place, d'Arnaud will log a rare start in the outfield -- only his third of the year -- and this should ensure he gains eligibility as an outfielder in many leagues. However, while the journeyman has overachieved this season, his ceiling only limits him to NL-only and extremely deep mixed formats anyway.
