Braves | Braves catchers to split playing time

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 15:24:05 -0700

Atlanta Braves Cs A.J. Pierzynski and Anthony Recker will split playing time with C Tyler Flowers (hand) landing on the disabled list, according to interim manager Brian Snitker.

Fantasy Tip: This was basically the same setup Atlanta had in place while Flowers was active. Even with Recker sliding into the equation, this isn't really a situation worth monitoring, as the former New York Met is below the Mendoza Line for his career and has zero potential to contribute. Pierzynski, meanwhile, is on his last legs at this point.

Braves | Several Atlanta regulars resting Sunday

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 07:23:22 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Gordon Beckham, SS Erick Aybar and C A.J. Pierzynski are not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Jon Gray Sunday, July 17. INF/OF Jace Peterson will bat leadoff and play second base, INF Chase d'Arnaud will bat second and play shortstop, OF Jeff Francoeur will bat fifth and play left field and C Anthony Recker will start behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Francoeur has hit safely in eight of his last nine games and is worth considering as a value play in daily fantasy contests, while Peterson, d'Arnaud and Recker should be viewed strictly as a source of desperation salary cap relief.

Braves | Tyler Flowers pulled from game Saturday

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 12:36:59 -0700

Atlanta Braves C Tyler Flowers (hand) left the game against the Chicago White Sox on Saturday, July 9, in the bottom of the second inning with a strained left hand. He was replaced by C A.J. Pierzynski.

Fantasy Tip: The injury was apparently one that was developing as the game progressed, as Flowers waved off the dugout before his first at-bat and Pierzynski was prepared to take the field. More details should follow shortly, but Flowers has been a quality low-end fantasy backstop this season, batting .253 with seven homers and 21 RBI.

Braves | Atlanta resting two players

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 08:52:25 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson and C A.J. Pierzynski are not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Saturday, July 9. 2B Gordon Beckham will start at second base and is batting second, while C Tyler Flowers will start at catcher and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham is hitting .303 with one home run and two RBI against left-handed pitchers this season and can be a sleeper option in daily fantasy leagues. Flowers is hitting only .214 over the last seven days and should only be used in two-catcher leagues.

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 | Atlanta resting two players

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 14:00:33 -0700

Atlanta Braves C A.J. Pierzynski and OF Emilio Bonifacio are not in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer Monday, June 27. C Tyler Flowers will start in catcher and is batting sixth in the lineup, while OF Brandon Snyder will start in left field and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Flowers is hitting .211 with two home runs and three RBI this month but does have three hits in his last two games. Flowers will have value in two-catcher leagues, but owners in other leagues should find better options. Snyder has gone 4-for-15 since joining the Braves but is not a strong option.

Braves | Jeff Francoeur back in lineup Sunday

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 07:54:53 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Jeff Francoeur is back in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon Sunday, June 26, batting seventh and playing left field. In addition, C A.J. Pierzynski is batting sixth and starting behind the plate, while INF Chase d'Arnaud is batting eighth and playing shortstop. C Tyler Flowers and SS Erick Aybar are receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: D'Arnaud is batting .257 with five doubles and five RBI in 74 at-bats this month and could be a productive source of cap relief in DFS. Pierzynski is only batting .195 this month but is a lifetime .277 hitter versus Colon in 65 at-bats, with three doubles, two home runs and five RBI.

Braves | Mallex Smith, A.J. Pierzynski out

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 08:52:43 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Mallex Smith and C A.J. Pierzynski are not in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester Sunday, June 12. OF Jeff Francoeur will bat cleanup and play left field, while C Tyler Flowers starts behind the plate and bats seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Francoeur has arguably been Atlanta's best hitter this season, batting .288 with two home runs and 16 RBI, making him a viable option for daily fantasy contests. On the other hand, Flowers is only batting .204 versus left-handed pitching this year and should be avoided today.
