Atlanta Braves Cs A.J. Pierzynski and Anthony Recker will split playing time with C Tyler Flowers (hand) landing on the disabled list, according to interim manager Brian Snitker.
Fantasy Tip: This was basically the same setup Atlanta had in place while Flowers was active. Even with Recker sliding into the equation, this isn't really a situation worth monitoring, as the former New York Met is below the Mendoza Line for his career and has zero potential to contribute. Pierzynski, meanwhile, is on his last legs at this point.

Atlanta Braves 2B Gordon Beckham, SS Erick Aybar and C A.J. Pierzynski are not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Jon Gray Sunday, July 17. INF/OF Jace Peterson will bat leadoff and play second base, INF Chase d'Arnaud will bat second and play shortstop, OF Jeff Francoeur will bat fifth and play left field and C Anthony Recker will start behind the plate and bat eighth.
Fantasy Tip: Francoeur has hit safely in eight of his last nine games and is worth considering as a value play in daily fantasy contests, while Peterson, d'Arnaud and Recker should be viewed strictly as a source of desperation salary cap relief.

Atlanta Braves C Tyler Flowers (hand) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday, July 15, and in a corresponding move, C Anthony Recker was recalled from Class AAA Gwinnett.
Fantasy Tip: Recker and A.J. Pierzynski will likely split time behind the plate with Flowers out, but neither player has much fantasy value.

Atlanta Braves C Tyler Flowers (hand) has been diagnosed with a broken hand and will miss at least six weeks. C Anthony Recker likely will be recalled from Class AAA Gwinnett when Flowers is placed on the disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: A.J. Pierzynski likely will receive more starts with Flowers sidelined for multiple weeks. He is hitting only .205 with zero home runs and 18 RBI this season and is not a strong option. Owners in NL-only leagues could consider adding Recker if they need help at the position.

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 30. C Anthony Recker is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Boston Red Sox SP Wade Miley Sunday.
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid d'Arnaud ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Sunday. Recker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore Sunday, and you should probably aim higher.

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26. C Anthony Recker is behind the plate and is batting eighth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerad Eickhoff.
Fantasy Tip: Recker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap), who's hitting .138 (9-for-65) with two home runs, remains a desperation deep sleeper selection on FantasyScore despite facing a rookie making only his second major league start tonight.

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud was not in the lineup Sunday, Aug. 22, against the Colorado Rockies. C Anthony Recker batted eighth against Rockies SP David Hale.
Fantasy Tip: It appears d'Arnaud ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) got a normal day off. He should be back in the lineup for the next game, but keep an eye out if he gets another day off after this.
