Braves | Jordan Schafer, Reed Johnson could see time

Atlanta Braves OFs Jordan Schafer and Reed Johnson could see playing time in right field with OF Jason Heyward (appendix) on the disabled list. The team also has the option of moving OF Justin Upton from left field to right field. C Evan Gattis could also play left field, but it's unlikely Atlanta will ask Gattis to play left field in Coors Field this week.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis clearly gives Atlanta the most offensive upside over Schafer and Johnson, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see them try to get his bat in the lineup any way possible. Schafer should be your first target over Johnson in NL leagues if Atlanta doesn't move Gattis to left. Stay tuned.
