Braves | Kelly Johnson, Erick Aybar out

Sun, 22 May 2016 09:47:25 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Kelly Johnson and SS Erick Aybar are not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerad Eickhoff Sunday, May 22. 3B Gordon Beckham will start at second base, while SS Chase d'Arnaud will start at third base and is batting second. 2B Daniel Castro will start at shortstop and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Castro has been pretty quiet over the past week, while d'Arnaud has posted a .474 batting average during the same span. Owners probably can pass on Castro in most leagues, but d'Arnaud can be a sleeper option in some daily fantasy leagues.

Braves | Erick Aybar back in starting lineup

Fri, 20 May 2016 12:39:06 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Erick Aybar (throat) is back in the starting lineup and is hitting seventh against Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Nola Friday, May 20.

Fantasy Tip: You're best off avoiding Aybar in all fantasy formats after the way he's started the year. He has a .174/.207/.205 line with no home runs, five RBI and only two stolen bases. Aybar has been pretty useless to fantasy owners.

Braves | Erik Aybar sustains unique injury

Thu, 19 May 2016 13:59:48 -0700

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Braves SS Erick Aybar (throat) got a chicken bone stuck in his throat eating lunch, and he had to be sedated by a physician to have the bone removed.

Fantasy Tip: This likely won't keep Aybar out of the lineup longer than his Thursday absence, but you'll want to check back for any updates. Light-hitting Daniel Castro (.207 batting average this season) is filling in for Aybar Thursday, and Castro stands to handle the 6, if Aybar misses additional time.

Braves | No Erick Aybar Thursday

Thu, 19 May 2016 12:27:47 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Erick Aybar is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 19. SS Daniel Castro is starting at the 6 and is batting seventh against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke.

Fantasy Tip: Castro has been seeing decent playing time moving around the infield as a defensive specialist. His bat, on the other hand, isn't nearly as good. He has just 18 hits in 87 at-bats (.207) and has zero power to speak of. Avoid him in all formats.

Braves | No Gordon Beckham Wednesday

Wed, 18 May 2016 12:28:06 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Gordon Beckham is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 18. SS Chase d'Arnaud is starting at the hot corner and is batting seventh against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano. SS Erick Aybar is starting at second base and hitting sixth, while SS Daniel Castro is at shortstop and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: None of the Braves infielders tonight aside from Freddie Freeman have much upside at all at the plate, so you should look in another direction.

Braves | Erick Aybar out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 17 May 2016 12:09:16 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Erick Aybar is not in the lineup Tuesday, May 17, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. 2B Daniel Castro will start at shortstop and bat seventh against Pirates SP Juan Nicasio.

Fantasy Tip: Castro is one of those players that will get you fantasy points in leagues where fielding counts, and those leagues are few and far between. Castro doesn't have a ton of fantasy value and should be left alone in all but the deepest of NL formats, where you may have more roster space.

Braves | Atlanta resting three players

Sun, 15 May 2016 10:23:59 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Kelly Johnson, C A.J. Pierzynski and SS Erick Aybar are not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy Sunday, May 15. C Tyler Flowers will start at catcher and is batting fourth. SS Chase d'Arnaud will start at second base and is batting seventh, while 2B Daniel Castro will start at shortstop and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Flowers is hitting .273 over the last seven days and should be considered in two-catcher leagues. Castro and d'Arnaud have received limited playing time over the past few weeks and are not a great option for owners.

Braves | Erick Aybar to lose playing time?

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 16:22:20 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Erick Aybar, who is hitting only .134 on the year and .043 (1-for-23) against lefties, will likely move to second base for some games in the near future. Manager Fredi Gonzalez wants to give SS Daniel Castro some time at shortstop. Aybar started 35 games at second in 2007 as a rookie, but he played only two innings there in 2008 and hasn't played there since.

Fantasy Tip: Aybar is a slap hitter that never has had much offensive prowess, so his fantasy value should've already been limited to NL-only leagues. Castro is a defensive specialist, too, so his ownership should be limited to the same formats for now.

Braves | Erick Aybar out again

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 13:44:18 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Erick Aybar is out of the starting lineup again Monday, April 25. SS Daniel Castro is starting at shortstop again and is hitting second against Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello.

Fantasy Tip: Aybar has just nine hits in 66 at-bats (.136) and could continue to lose playing time at the 6. Only hang onto him for bench depth in NL-only affairs. Castro, on the other hand, has 12 hits in 35 at-bats (.343). However, he's more of a defensive-minded utility infielder for Atlanta and remains a low-end shortstop play in DFS action.

Braves | Erick Aybar not playing

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 09:44:43 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Erick Aybar is not in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom Sunday, April 24. 2B Daniel Castro will start at shortstop in place of Aybar. OF Kelly Johnson will start at second base, while 2B Jace Peterson will start in left field and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson has gone 3-for-11 with three RBI over the last seven days but his hitting only .206 on the season. Owners probably could find better options to use in their lineups.
