Braves | Cameron Maybin not batting Tuesday

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 12:32:42 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Cameron Maybin is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25, against the Colorado Rockies. OF Michael Bourn is in center field and has the eighth spot against Rockies SP Chad Bettis.

Fantasy Tip: Maybin ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) hits .326-5-27 at Turner Field but only has one at-bat against Bettis for his career. This appears to be a standard night off and a chance to get Bourn ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) in the lineup. Bourn is hitting .125 in the last week, so don't take a chance he'll break out.

Braves | Cameron Maybin on hot streak

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 11:40:01 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Cameron Maybin is 16-for-40 (.400) in his past 10 games, including 10-for-21 with 5 extra-base hits and two home runs in his current streak of five 2-hit games.

Fantasy Tip: Maybin ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has been down in numbers in previous seasons, but it appears he is warming up to the point where he is a regular fixture in the Atlanta lineup. Analyze Maybin's situations before you play him in FantasyScore, but for now he's on a hot streak so he's a good bet.

Braves | Cameron Maybin won't be affected

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 14:23:30 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Cameron Maybin will not be affected by the acquisitions of OF Michael Bourn and 1B Nick Swisher, according to president John Hart. It sounds as if the Braves are planning to have Maybin back next year.

Fantasy Tip: Maybin ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has been extremely productive for his owners this year, but he's fallen on hard times of late, going 15-for-80 (.188) with no home runs and four RBI since the All-Star break. He might not be as productive as he was earlier this year for the rest of the season, but he can still contribute valuable power and speed numbers.

Braves | Cameron Maybin sitting vs. Giants

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 15:42:08 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Cameron Maybin is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 5. OF Jonny Gomes is playing left field and batting third against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Maybin ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has been struggling of late, and with Bumgarner ($9,500, 19.0% of cap) on the hill, it is a good night to provide Maybin with a breather. Over his past 20 games, Maybin has a .171/.209/.195 slash line with seven runs, two doubles, three RBI and three stolen bases. It isn't out of the question to avoid him in all fantasy formats until he heats back up at the dish. With the tough matchup, aim higher than Gomes ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) at FantasyScore Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Perez ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) has three singles and three walks in 12 plate appearances against lefties this season, and he can be used in GPP tournaments in the hope he's able to get on base.

Braves | ATL shopping three players

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 17:10:17 -0700

Atlanta Braves OFs Jonny Gomes and Cameron Maybin and RP Jim Johnson could be moved by the team before the trade deadline.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has struggled at the plate this season, batting .203 with four home runs and 13 RBIs through 62 games entering play Friday, July 24. On the other hand, Maybin ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is enjoying arguably the best season of his career, hitting .283 with eight homers, 44 RBIs and 16 steals through 83 contests. Johnson is 2-3 with a 2.15 ERA and eight saves since replacing Jason Grilli as the Braves' closer.

Braves | Jace Peterson out vs. lefty

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 13:35:58 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 24. SS Pedro Ciriaco is starting at second base and batting second with OF Cameron Maybin moving up to the leadoff spot against St. Louis Cardinals SP Tim Cooney.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is slumping in July with a .169/.239/.231 slash line over 73 plate appearances, and he should be avoided in the majority of fantasy formats until he turns it around at the dish. Maybin's ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) fantasy value isn't overly impacted, and he remains a mid-tier outfield option. Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) checks out as a cheap flier for FantasyScore contests Friday.

He is tipping the scales in all five categories, and at this stage, Maybin should be owned in all yearly formats.

Giants | SF eyeing Cameron Maybin, Gerardo Parra

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 09:51:56 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Cameron Maybin and Milwaukee Brewers OF Gerardo Parra have caught the attention of the San Francisco Giants as they look to upgrade their outfield. Giants outfielders have just 12 home runs all season.

Fantasy Tip: Both Maybin ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) and Parra ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) are having fine seasons and have made their fantasy owners very happy. Maybin is the more valuable because of his mix of speed and power, but Parra has been a very nice value play on FantasyScore himself with Khris Davis on the DL. Both outfielders would likely lose a little fantasy luster with a move to San Fran and their pitching-friendly home environment. Also, their playing time might become cloudy once Nori Aoki and Hunter Pence return from injury.
