Braves | A.J. Pierzynski returns to action

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 12:43:40 -0700

Atlanta Braves C A.J. Pierzynski is back in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Charlie Morton Saturday, June 27, batting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Pierzynski ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is batting .294 over the past week and has one hit in three career at-bats against Morton. He's worthy of consideration as a low-end catching option in FantasyScore.

Braves | A.J. Pierzynski sitting vs. Pirates

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 13:25:21 -0700

Atlanta Braves C A.J. Pierzynski is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 26. C Ryan Lavarnway is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Pierzynski ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is bouncing back slightly after a disastrous May. Still, his seasonal value is tied to being a low-end option in two-catcher, cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. Lavarnway ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a career .192 hitter through 312 at-bats, so FantasyScore players can fade him without concern.

Braves | A.J. Pierzynski the cleanup stick

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 12:06:42 -0700

Atlanta Braves C A.J. Pierzynski is hitting fourth in the order against Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg Tuesday, June 23.

Fantasy Tip: Pierzynski ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) might find himself in this better run-producing spot more often with Freddie Freeman (wrist) on the DL. After a hot opening month, Pierzynski has cooled down considerably, and he's hitting just .243 (17-for-70) with a home run and eight RBI since May 24. You could do worse at catcher, though, and he's facing a pitcher fresh off the DL that has been roughed up often this season.

Braves | A.J. Pierzynski not starting Sunday

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 13:56:19 -0700

Atlanta Braves C A.J. Pierzynski is not in the starting lineup Sunday, June 21. C Ryan Lavarnway is catching for the Braves.

Fantasy Tip: It appears to be a normal day off for Pierzynski ($3,300, 6.6% of cap), so take him out of your lineup. As for Lavarnway, keep him seated and look elsewhere for your replacement.

Mets | Travis d'Arnaud exits game

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 18:34:54 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud (arm) exited against the Atlanta Braves with an apparent left arm injury after a collision at the plate with C A.J. Pierzynski Saturday, June 20.

Fantasy Tip: He just can't catch break. d'Arnaud ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) had a homer and three RBI before suffering another injury. He has shown promise as a value play at FantasyScore in the games he has managed to play, but it remains to be seen how long this latest issue will sideline him.

Braves | A.J. Pierzynski sitting out

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 09:09:37 -0700

Atlanta Braves C A.J. Pierzynski is not in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Dillon Gee Sunday, June 14. C Christian Bethancourt will be the starting catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Pierzynski ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) probably will return to the lineup in the next game or two. Bethancourt ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has six hits and two RBI in his last four games and could be a cheaper catcher option for owners on FantasyScore.

Braves | A.J. Pierzynski out of lineup Tuesday

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 12:22:42 -0700

Atlanta Braves C A.J. Pierzynski is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 9, against the San Diego Padres. C Christian Bethancourt is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Pierzynski ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is likely out of the lineup with righty James Shields pitching for San Diego. Bethancourt ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) gives the Braves the righty vs. righty matchup, and he is 4-for-8 in his last two games. He's definitely worth the start.

Braves | A.J. Pierzynski out of lineup Saturday

Sat, 06 Jun 2015 13:47:00 -0700

Atlanta Braves C A.J. Pierzynski will receive a rest day Saturday, June 6, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. C Christian Bethancourt will start behind the plate and hit eighth in the order against LHP Jeff Locke.

Fantasy Tip: Bethancourt ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has just three multi-hit games on the season, with the most coming May 21. Bethancourt can be completely ignored for FantasyScore purposes.
