Braves | Christian Bethancourt not playing

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 12:12:55 -0700

Atlanta Braves C Christian Bethancourt is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Sept. 3. C A.J. Pierzynski is behind the plate and is batting cleanup against Washington Nationals SP Jordan Zimmermann.

Fantasy Tip: While Pierzynski ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is facing one of the tougher matchups Thursday, he still could be one of the safer catcher plays on FantasyScore, with a short slate of games and many starting catchers being rested.

Braves | Christian Bethancourt not starting Tuesday

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 12:29:09 -0700

Atlanta Braves C Christian Bethancourt is not starting Tuesday, Sept. 1, against the Miami Marlins. C A.J. Pierzynski is in Bethancourt's place, and he is batting fifth against Marlins SP Justin Nicolino.

Fantasy Tip: Bethancourt ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is out for the second time in three days, likely because of the presence of the lefty pitcher for Miami. He is also hitting .091 against the Marlins. Pierzynski ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is hitting .222 in the last week, so that light bat carries little FantasyScore value.

Braves | A.J. Pierzynski not in lineup

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 11:56:43 -0700

Atlanta Braves C A.J. Pierzynski is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26. C Christian Bethancourt is starting and hitting seventh against Colorado Rockies SP Yohan Flande. Also, OF Jonny Gomes is starting in left field and hitting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Against Flande, using Bethancourt ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) and Gomes ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) aren't bad considerations if you're looking for salary cap relief. Gomes, especially, could return nice value in the middle of the order against a lefty.

Braves | Christian Bethancourt starts vs. Rockies

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 13:11:25 -0700

Atlanta Braves C Christian Bethancourt is starting behind the plate and batting fifth against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa Monday, Aug. 24. C A.J. Pierzynski is not in the starting lineup Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Bethancourt struggled mightily during a 29-game stint with the Braves earlier this season, and it is unknown how many starts he'll receive, so seasonal owners will want to temper their expectations. However, there is plenty of upside, as Bethancourt posted a .327/.359/.480 slash line over 218 plate appearances with Class AAA Gwinnett this season. Pierzynski's ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) fantasy value will likely take a hit, as Atlanta didn't recall Bethancourt to sit on the bench. Expect a near timeshare.

Braves | A.J. Pierzynski gets day off

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 11:01:57 -0700

Atlanta Braves C A.J. Pierzynski is not in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel Sunday, Aug. 23. C Ryan Lavarnway will start and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Lavarnway ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is 4-for-15 with two doubles and two RBIs during the month of August. Unless you're a FantasyScore owner in dire need of salary cap relief, look elsewhere for a catching option.

Braves | A.J. Pierzynski resting Wednesday

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 11:29:22 -0700

Atlanta Braves C A.J. Pierzynski is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 19. C Ryan Lavarnway is behind the dish and is batting eighth against San Diego Padres SP Tyson Ross.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners should have no reason to use Lavarnway ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) other than to save valuable cap space for the rest of your lineup. He's hitting a combined .206 (14-for-68) with a home run and five RBI this year with the Baltimore Orioles and Braves.

Braves | A.J. Pierzynski out of lineup

Sat, 15 Aug 2015 12:51:04 -0700

Atlanta Braves C A.J. Pierzynski is not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin Saturday, Aug. 15. C Ryan Lavarnway will start behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Lavarnway ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is 3-for-9 during the month of August but should only be considered as a FantasyScore option if you are really desperate for salary cap relief.

Braves | A.J. Pierzynski ends hit streak

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 05:31:21 -0700

Atlanta Braves C A.J. Pierzynski saw his hitting streak come to an end at 13 games Sunday, Aug. 9, against the Miami Marlins.

Fantasy Tip: Pierzynski ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has been a valuable source of support for the younger players on the team, and all indications are he may return for another season in Atlanta. Pierzynski is hitting a solid .300 following the hit streak.
