Tigers | Detroit adds Cameron Maybin

Fri, 20 Nov 2015 14:02:23 -0800

The Detroit Tigers acquired OF Cameron Maybin from the Atlanta Braves in exchange for RPs Ian Krol and Gabe Speier Friday, Nov. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Maybin's 2015 campaign was a tale of two halves. Before the All-Star break, he owned a .289/.356/.418 slash line with eight home runs and 15 stolen bases, but he went to the tune of .240/.289/.311 in the second half with just two home runs and eight steals. There is still upside, though, especially if Maybin can lock down the lead-off job atop a potent Detroit lineup. Monitoring his projected role with the Tigers in spring training is recommended.

Braves | Freddie Freeman being shopped

Mon, 16 Nov 2015 10:37:49 -0800

Atlanta Braves 1B Freddie Freeman is being shopped this offseason, according to sources from three different teams. One source said discussions were "the talk of the (Arizona) Fall League" this month. Freeman hit .276 with 18 home runs and 66 RBI in 118 games in 2015 and is signed through 2021 and is owed $118.5 million over those six years. The Braves are also considering trading SP Julio Teheran and OFs Nick Markakis and Cameron Maybin as they look to rebuild.

Fantasy Tip: The Braves traded defensive specialist Andrelton Simmons last week and are clearly looking to rebuild. Freeman is their best player remaining, and he easily has 20-plus home run power over a full season. A move out of Atlanta would likely boost his fantasy value even further.

Braves | Atlanta shopping outfielders

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 10:30:26 -0800

The Atlanta Braves are aggressively shopping OFs Michael Bourn, Nick Swisher and Cameron Maybin at the general manager meetings this week, according to a rival official. However, Braves GM John Coppolella denies that the Braves are considering moving Maybin.

Fantasy Tip: Maybin had by far the best year of any Braves outfielder in 2015, but he tailed off considerably in the second half. Bourn and Swisher are platoon bats that only have value in deep mixed fantasy leagues. Maybin could be even more intriguing to fantasy owners if he's traded to a better situation.

Braves | ATL starters resting in Game 2

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 13:19:31 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Cameron Maybin, SS Andrelton Simmons, OF Nick Markakis, 1B Nick Swisher and C A.J. Pierzynski are not in the starting lineup for Game 2 of the doubleheader against the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday, Oct. 4.

Fantasy Tip: With nothing on the line, look for some of these players to possibly pinch-hit, but otherwise their regular season is over. Leave them out of your FantasyScore lineup.

Braves | Cameron Maybin returns vs. Nats

Thu, 01 Oct 2015 13:31:05 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Cameron Maybin is starting against Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg Thursday, Oct. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Strasburg ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) has held opponents to a .173/.208/.309 slash line over his past 13 starts, so Maybin ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) checks out as nothing more than a contrarian flier at FantasyScore Thursday.

Braves | Cameron Maybin out against Nationals

Wed, 30 Sep 2015 15:14:29 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Cameron Maybin is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 30, but he is expected to play Thursday, Oct. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Maybin ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has only started two games over the past week due to nagging injuries, and he might also be being squeezed out of playing time in favor of Michael Bourn ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) a touch. Regardless, fantasy owners, outside of cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, have no reason to roster either outfield, and FantasyScore players should view both as desperation fliers.

Braves | Cameron Maybin out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 29 Sep 2015 14:15:49 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Cameron Maybin is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 29, against the Washington Nationals. OF Michael Bourn is hitting eighth against Nationals SP Tanner Roark.

Fantasy Tip: Maybin ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) appears to be getting a normal night off so the Braves can try different lineups. Bourn ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is hitting .467 in the last week, so if you're looking to save some cap space he may make a solid addition.

Braves | Cameron Maybin sitting vs. Marlins

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 08:34:45 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Cameron Maybin is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Sept. 27. OF Michael Bourn is starting in center field and batting eighth against Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Maybin ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) in all fantasy formats Sunday. He has gone 5-for-11 over his past three games and stands to have a solid final week of the season for his patient owners. Bourn ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation flier at FantasyScore Sunday, as he owns a .535 OPS through 128 plate appearances since joining Atlanta.

Braves | Cameron Maybin not starting Tuesday

Tue, 22 Sep 2015 12:22:59 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Cameron Maybin is not starting Tuesday, Sept. 22, against the New York Mets. OF Michael Bourn is hitting eighth in place of Maybin, against Mets SP Logan Verrett.

Fantasy Tip: Maybin ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) appears to be getting a normal off night so Bourn can get some playing time in center. Bourn ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has a .176 average against the Mets and doesn't carry much fantasy value.

Braves | Cameron Maybin does little in return

Wed, 16 Sep 2015 22:48:49 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Cameron Maybin (eye) returned to the lineup Wednesday, Sept. 16, against the Toronto Blue Jays. He was hitless in four at-bats with three strikeouts in his first action since suffering a left eye abrasion Sept. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Maybin ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) showed a ton of rust, so avoid him in FantasyScore until he can start to show a little more consistency.
