Braves | Ender Inciarte hot of late

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 12:48:03 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte lost his seven-game hitting streak when he pinch hit Tuesday, June 14, but he is batting .355 (11-for-31) in his last eight games and is 2-for-5 with a home run against his opponent Wednesday, June 15, Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the hot streak, his slash line of .234/.300/.310 on the year leaves a lot to be desired. Inciarte has almost zero power and hasn't yet left the yard this year, and he's only stolen three bags after swiping 21 for the D-backs in 2015. For now, Inciarte is strictly depth in AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, and he doesn't have much appeal in daily formats.

Braves | Ender Inciarte takes a seat

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 12:43:29 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte is not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds left-handed SP Brandon Finnegan Tuesday, June 14. OF Jeff Francoeur is starting in left field and is batting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Inciarte often rests against left-handed pitchers. Francoeur has excelled against southpaws this season, so he's not a bad value play in daily games Tuesday night in the cleanup spot.

Braves | Ender Inciarte heating up

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 09:45:50 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte is 10-for-25 (.400) with two doubles, two triples, five runs scored and three RBI during his six-game hitting streak.

Fantasy Tip: Inciarte has been slow to produce following his injury, but he's hitting .279 (12-for-43) during June. The speedy outfielder has yet to steal a base on the year, though, after swiping 21 for the D-backs in 2015. If he continues to reach base, expect him to start running more often as he gains full health.

Braves | Ender Inciarte on the bench

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 11:33:54 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Scott Kazmir Sunday, June 5. OF Mallex Smith will start in center field, while OF Jeff Francoeur will start in left field and is batting fourth.

Fantasy Tip: Francoeur has played very well against left-handed pitchers this season with a .339 average with two home runs and eight RBI in 62 at-bats. He is hitting only .154 over the last seven days but could still be a sleeper option in daily fantasy leagues.

Braves | Several ATL regulars sitting out Saturday

Sat, 28 May 2016 10:16:52 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte, SS Erick Aybar and INF Chase d'Arnaud are not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Wei-Yin Chen Saturday, May 28. OF Mallex Smith will bat leadoff and play center field, 3B Adonis Garcia will bat seventh and play the hot corner and INF Daniel Castro will bat eighth and play shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is batting .288 with two doubles, two triples, three home runs and eight RBI in 66 at-bats this month and makes a decent outfield option in NL-only and deep mixed leagues because of his speed. Garcia and Castro are batting a combined .180 (11-for-61) with two RBI this month and should be avoided in all fantasy formats.

Braves | Ender Inciarte staying at CF

Tue, 24 May 2016 18:54:09 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte will be the everyday center fielder because interim manager Brian Snitker thinks he is the best option at this point. OF Mallex Smith likely will see most of his playing time in left field but will start at center field when Inciarte receives a day off.

Fantasy Tip: Inciarte is hitting only .219 with two RBI since returning to the lineup and probably should be avoided in most fantasy leagues. Smith has been a bit inconsistent at the plate recently but is still hitting .291 in May. He should be considered a decent option in daily fantasy leagues when he is in the lineup.

Braves | Several ATL regulars resting Saturday

Sat, 21 May 2016 11:00:30 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Kelly Johnson, C A.J. Pierzynski, OF Mallex Smith are not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan Saturday, May 21. INF Chase d'Arnaud will bat leadoff and play third base, INF Gordon Beckham will bat second and play second base, OF Jeff Francoeur will play left field and bat cleanup, C Tyler Flowers will start behind the plate and bat sixth and OF Ender Inciarte will bat seventh and play center field.

Fantasy Tip: The Braves are facing a left-handed pitcher this afternoon, which explains why several of their left-handed-hitting position players are on the bench. Beckham and d'Arnaud are a combined 30-for-86 (.349) this season and should be viewed as productive sources of salary cap relief in DFS.

Braves | Routine day off for Ender Inciarte

Thu, 19 May 2016 14:19:03 -0700

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte is receiving a routine day off Thursday, May 19, according to manager Brian Snitker.

Fantasy Tip: Inciarte is off to a slow start since returning from his hamstring injury with a .232/.295/.250 slash line and zero stolen bases. He should kick-start a hot stretch here sooner or later, but Inciarte is nothing more than a low-end starter in the majority of yearly setups.

Braves | Ender Inciarte takes a seat

Thu, 19 May 2016 12:21:54 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte is not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates left-handed SP Jeff Locke Thursday, May 19. OF Jeff Francoeur is starting in left field and is hitting cleanup, while SS Chase d'Arnaud is at third base and moves up to the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: D'Arnaud is a desperation DFS flyer despite the nice lineup positioning. Francoeur doesn't have much upside left in his lumber, but he's hitting well against lefties (.279 with his lone home run), and he could be a successful value pick as a deep sleeper tonight.

Braves | Mallex Smith resting vs. lefty

Wed, 18 May 2016 12:23:02 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Mallex Smith is not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates left-handed SP Francisco Liriano Wednesday, May 18. OF Ender Inciarte is in center field and batting leadoff, while OF Jeff Francoeur draws into the lineup in left field and is batting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Smith takes a seat after a surprising two-homer performance last night. He'll be a popular waiver wire pickup now that his bat is hot. Inciarte is hitting only .216 on the year with one RBI and no stolen bases. He's a weak daily play against the lefty. Francoeur is hitting .300 with a homer against lefties this year, so he's a sleeper worth considering in this matchup and while hitting cleanup.
