Braves | Jordan Walden, Luis Avilan helping to form new Big 3 in bullpen

Atlanta Braves RP Jordan Walden has allowed just one hit and two walks, with 11 strikeouts, in 11 1/3 scoreless innings (11 games) since returning from the DL. His .163 opponents' average is tied for second-best in the NL, behind Los Angeles Dodgers RP Paco Rodriguez. RP Luis Avilan has allowed just two hits and three walks, with nine strikeouts, in his last 15 appearances (12 2/3 frames).

Fantasy Tip: Perhaps Walden is aligning himself as the fill-in for Craig Kimbrel, should it ever come to that. The lefty Avilan might earn situational duty in that event.
