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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
