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.

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.

Braves | Cameron Maybin sitting out vs. Pirates

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 12:51:35 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Cameron Maybin is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 26. OF Eury Perez is playing center field and batting second against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Maybin ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is likely just receiving a night off, as he has been one of the more pleasant surprises in fantasy baseball this season. At first glance, Perez ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) should likely be avoided at FantasyScore, and at best, viewed as a desperation source of cap relief. He did hit .296 and steal 28 bases through 60 games with Class AAA Gwinnett this season, though, so there is upside.

Fantasy Tip: Maybin ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has turned into a fantasy darling, and he should be owned in all the but the shallowest of year-long leagues. At his cap hit, he is currently an excellent bargain at FantasyScore, too, including against struggling starter Ian Kennedy Monday.
