Braves | Two Braves sitting out

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 14:46:36 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Erick Aybar and 2B Jace Peterson are out of the lineup Saturday, July 23, with SS Chase d'Arnaud leading off and OF Jeff Francoeur hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Frenchy is hanging around, in part, because of what he does against left-handed pitchers. He faces lefty Tyler Anderson in Coors Field and looks to be a dynamite low-end flyer. As for d'Arnaud, he hits slightly better against lefties, and he's a solid low-end option as well.

Braves | Several Atlanta regulars resting Sunday

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 07:23:22 -0700

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.

Braves | Gordon Beckham starting at shortstop

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 13:05:03 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Gordon Beckham is starting at shortstop and is hitting second in his return from the disabled list against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel Thursday, July 7. SS Erick Aybar starts on the bench. Also, OF Ender Inciarte moves down to No. 8 in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham had earned himself regular playing time with a hot bat before his injury, but it remains to be seen how much he'll play now, as he'll likely bounce around the infield. His offensive upside is limited, however, making him more of a low-end DFS option and NL-only commodity. Inciarte hasn't worked out well for Atlanta this year and is hitting just .231 with a homer, 11 RBI and eight steals. He's a low-end DFS pick.

Braves | Erick Aybar on a roll

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 14:07:30 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Erick Aybar is hitting .306 with a .388 on-base percentage and .412 slugging percentage in his last 26 games after posting a slash line of .174/.207/.205 in his first 38 games through May 19.

Fantasy Tip: It really couldn't have gotten any worse for Aybar, and his line is now up to .226/.282/286. However, with almost no power to speak of (one homer in 241 plate appearances), Aybar's offensive ceiling is too low to consider outside of depth purposes in NL-only leagues.

Phillies | Jerad Eickhoff cruises past Atlanta

Mon, 04 Jul 2016 19:34:42 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerad Eickhoff surrendered an early two-run shot to Erick Aybar but settled down to hold the Atlanta Braves scoreless after that en route to his fourth win in his last five decisions on Monday, July 4. Eickhoff yielded five hits and walked three while fanning eight over a season-best seven 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Since falling to 2-8 with a 3.93 ERA with a loss on June 2, Eickhoff has been steady if not spectacular, going 4-1 with a 2.17 ERA. The 26-year-old is going to have a difficult time living up to that standard in his final outing before the All-Star break at the Colorado Rockies on Saturday, but at least he has set the stage for a strong start to the second half of the season.

Braves | Two Braves idle

Mon, 04 Jul 2016 10:23:03 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Erick Aybar and 3B Adonis Garcia are out of the lineup Monday, July 4. 3B Brandon Snyder is hitting seventh, and OF Emilio Bonifacio is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Bonifacio has wheels, but he's hitting just .148. Neither of the two have much luster against Jerad Eickhoff today.

Braves | Julio Teheran unlikely to be dealt

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 11:29:05 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Julio Teheran is unlikely to be traded this summer, but SS Erick Aybar could be moved quickly if they receive an offer for the veteran infielder. Aybar is hitting .306 (15-for-49) with four doubles, five walks, a .404 on-base percentage and .388 slugging percentage in the last 15 games.

Fantasy Tip: Teheran is having an All-Star season (2.46 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 8.41 K/9) and has been extremely valuable for fantasy owners minus his lack of wins. A move outside of Atlanta could make him more attractive, but either way his owners aren't complaining. Aybar was terrible to begin the year but has come on strong lately. He's still nothing more than NL-only middle infield depth.

Braves | Jeff Francoeur back in lineup Sunday

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 07:54:53 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Jeff Francoeur is back in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon Sunday, June 26, batting seventh and playing left field. In addition, C A.J. Pierzynski is batting sixth and starting behind the plate, while INF Chase d'Arnaud is batting eighth and playing shortstop. C Tyler Flowers and SS Erick Aybar are receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: D'Arnaud is batting .257 with five doubles and five RBI in 74 at-bats this month and could be a productive source of cap relief in DFS. Pierzynski is only batting .195 this month but is a lifetime .277 hitter versus Colon in 65 at-bats, with three doubles, two home runs and five RBI.

Braves | Erick Aybar out against the Mets

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 07:25:25 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Erick Aybar is not in the starting lineup Sunday, June 26. INF Chase d'Arnaud is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Aybar has turned it around in June with a .300/.391/.425 line, but it has only resulted in four runs and four RBI. He is a desperation starting option in deep formats. D'Arnaud offers little in the power department (.371 slugging percentage), but he sits with a .282 batting average and .360 on-base percentage, which makes him a viable depth piece in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues.
