Braves | Lineup notes

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 15:54:15 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Jason Heyward (back) and C Evan Gattis are not in the starting lineup Friday, August 1, against the San Diego Padres. INF/OF Emilio Bonifacio is in the starting lineup batting eighth and playing right field.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward's back injury is starting to look like it could turn into a disabled list stint. Continue to check back for updates on his status. Gattis is likely just having a scheduled off-day. Bonifacio will see near-everyday at-bats while Heyward is injured.

Braves | Justin Upton scorching hot

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 09:14:13 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Justin Upton is batting .347 with nine runs scored, six doubles, two home runs and eight RBIs in 14 games since the All-Star break.

Fantasy Tip: We all know that Upton is prone to stretches of domination. He also turns that around and can turn in terrible stretches of coldness. Right now, you need to right him while he's hot.

Braves | Acquire Emilio Bonafacio and James Russell

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 13:29:54 -0700

The Atlanta Braves have acquired INF/OF Emilio Bonifacio and RP James Russell from the Chicago Cubs.

Fantasy Tip: Bonifacio will fill a utility role for the Braves. He is unlikely to see everyday at-bats, if the Braves remain healthy. With semi-regular at-bats, Bonifacio retains NL-only and deep mixed league value, due to his base stealing ability. Bonifacio could also push Tommy La Stella for playing time at the keystone position. Russell fills the left-handed-pitching void in the Braves' bullpen, but he has no fantasy value.

Braves | Jason Heyward out until at least Friday

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 21:14:57 -0700

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Braves OF Jason Heyward (back) is not expected to return to the lineup until Friday, Aug. 1, against the San Diego Padres. Manager Fredi Gonzalez said Wednesday, July 30, that he would probably give Heyward one more day of rest once Heyward says the back feels ready. "We talked about it today and he's still not feeling well," Gonzalez said. "If he comes in tomorrow and he's not feeling well, I'm not doing it, I'm not running him in there."

Fantasy Tip: Daily fantasy league players will want to play it safe and reserve Heyward Thursday and Friday. Wait to see him officially return and prove his health in one full game without setbacks before trusting him again.
