Braves | Erick Aybar on a roll

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 09:07:47 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Erick Aybar is hitting .364 with four doubles, four RBI and a .481 on-base percentage in seven games since returning from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Aybar doesn't do much to fill stat sheets, but he's an NL-only commodity worth running out there.

Braves | Erick Aybar sitting vs. Reds

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 09:00:23 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Erick Aybar is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 16. SS Chase d'Arnaud is starting at the 6 and is hitting eighth against Cincinnati Reds SP Dan Straily.

Fantasy Tip: D'Arnaud has limited offensive upside but has been hot at the plate recently, hitting .283 this month with four RBI in 53 at-bats. He's yet to homer, though, in parts of five major league seasons, so he profiles as more of a desperation daily selection, especially while hitting low in the order.

Braves | Erick Aybar returns to action

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 12:40:16 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Erick Aybar (ribs) is back in the starting lineup and is hitting eighth against Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani Wednesday, June 15.

Fantasy Tip: Aybar sat out last night after injuring his ribs in batting practice. He recently returned from a DL stint for another injury. In his two games back, Aybar is 2-for-7 (.286) with two doubles and an RBI. On the year, though, he hasn't done much (.187-0-7). Avoid him in DFS and keep him confined to middle infield depth in the deepest of NL leagues.

Braves | Erick Aybar scratched Tuesday

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 15:33:04 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Erick Aybar (ribs) was scratched from the starting lineup with bruised ribs Tuesday, June 14, after he was hit by a pitch Monday, June 13. 2B Jace Peterson is batting eighth against Cincinnati Reds SP Brandon Finnegan. X-rays on Aybar came back negative, and he's dealing with "just a bruise."

Fantasy Tip: Peterson is extremely limited offensively and is hitting just .231 with no home runs and four RBI in 52 at-bats this year. He draws a lefty on the hill, too, which should further eliminate him from a daily lineup spot.

Braves | Erick Aybar activated from disabled list

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 08:54:44 -0700

The Atlanta Braves have activated SS Erick Aybar (foot) from the 15-day disabled list. He is in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester Sunday, June 12, batting eighth. In a corresponding move, INF Daniel Castro was optioned to Class AAA Gwinnett.

Fantasy Tip: Aybar is batting .182 with six RBI over 148 at-bats and is nothing more than middle infield depth for NL-only fantasy leagues at this stage of his career. He is basically serving as a veteran placeholder until either Dansby Swanson or Ozzie Albies is ready to take over the position on an everyday basis.

Braves | Erick Aybar close to returning

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 11:18:08 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Erick Aybar (foot) is days away from returning from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Aybar is more of a defensive specialist and had an ugly .182/.225/.209 slash line with no home runs, six RBI and two steals before his injury. He's basically just keeping the shortstop job warm for either Dansby Swanson or Ozzie Albies. Aybar is strictly a depth option in deep NL-only leagues.

Braves | Erick Aybar placed on disabled list

Sat, 28 May 2016 12:39:07 -0700

The Atlanta Braves have placed SS Erick Aybar (foot) on the 15-day disabled list with a bruised right foot. He was hit by a pitch from Miami Marlins SP Adam Conley in the fourth inning and left the game during the following inning. X-rays came back negative.

Fantasy Tip: Aybar was batting just .182 with four doubles and six RBI through 148 at-bats before getting injured. Daniel Castro is likely to see the bulk of the action at shortstop in his absence but he is not a great option in any fantasy format. Gordon Beckham and Chase d'Arnaud are also possibilities to receive time at short.

Braves | Several ATL regulars sitting out Saturday

Sat, 28 May 2016 10:16:52 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte, SS Erick Aybar and INF Chase d'Arnaud are not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Wei-Yin Chen Saturday, May 28. OF Mallex Smith will bat leadoff and play center field, 3B Adonis Garcia will bat seventh and play the hot corner and INF Daniel Castro will bat eighth and play shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is batting .288 with two doubles, two triples, three home runs and eight RBI in 66 at-bats this month and makes a decent outfield option in NL-only and deep mixed leagues because of his speed. Garcia and Castro are batting a combined .180 (11-for-61) with two RBI this month and should be avoided in all fantasy formats.

Braves | Erick Aybar hit in foot

Fri, 27 May 2016 21:04:51 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Erick Aybar (foot) was replaced by SS Daniel Castro after being hit on the right foot Friday, May 27. X-rays were negative, and he is day-to-day with a bruised right foot.

Fantasy Tip: Aybar is hitting just .186, and Castro's .204 mark isn't much better. Neither player needs to be owned in any fantasy format.

Braves | Nick Markakis, Erick Aybar sitting

Thu, 26 May 2016 14:47:56 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Nick Markakis (rest) and SS Erick Aybar (rest) are not in the lineup Thursday, May 26. OF Jeff Francoeur is starting in right field and batting sixth, while SS Daniel Castro is in at shortstop and hitting seventh opposite Milwaukee Brewers SP Wily Peralta.

Fantasy Tip: If defense counted in fantasy, Castro would have a little more value, but with a dead bat, he really shouldn't be on any rosters. Francoeur, meanwhile, is the definition of a dart throw, as he's capable of providing some pop with the lumber once in a blue moon. Both guys can be left on the wire.
