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 | 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 | Nick Swisher playing left field

Sat, 26 Sep 2015 13:10:02 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Nick Swisher will bat fifth and play left field against Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino Saturday, Sept. 26. OF Michael Bourn is not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is 1-for-15 over the past week and hitless in three career at-bats versus Nicolino, so he should be avoided in FantasyScore.

Braves | Freddie Freeman sitting out

Wed, 23 Sep 2015 12:37:08 -0700

Atlanta Braves 1B Freddie Freeman is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 23. 1B Nick Swisher is starting at first base and batting third, while OF Michael Bourn is starting in left field and hitting eighth against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is a fine value pick in daily lineups, as he's hitting 7-for-15 (.467) with two home runs in his career against Colon. Bourn ($3,500, 7.0% of cap), on the other hand, is hitting only .176 (18-for-102) with the Braves since being traded and isn't worth your time on FantasyScore, especially while at the bottom of the lineup.

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 | Nick Markakis out again vs. Mets

Mon, 21 Sep 2015 12:47:46 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Nick Markakis is not in the starting lineup Monday, Sept. 21. OF Michael Bourn is starting in right field and batting first against New York Mets SP Jon Niese Monday.

Fantasy Tip: This is the second consecutive game Markakis ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has sat out, so check back for updates on a potential injury announcement. Bourn ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is nothing more than a flier at FantasyScore Monday. After all, he has a .461 OPS through 34 games with the Braves.

Braves | Nick Markakis sitting out vs. Philly

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 08:34:08 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Nick Markakis is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Sept. 20. OF Michael Bourn is starting in right field and batting first against Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Nola Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Leading the National League in at-bats, Markakis ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is likely due to have a day off. He owns a sneaky-good .371 on-base percentage this season and 37 doubles. Still, he is a low-end outfielder in the majority of formats. Bourn ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) owns a .226/.298/.271 slash line this season, and he has been even worse since joining Atlanta. It is safe to pass on Bourn at FantasyScore Sunday.

Braves | Cameron Maybin cleared to play

Tue, 15 Sep 2015 13:15:28 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Cameron Maybin (eye) has been cleared to play, but OF Michael Bourn is starting over him against Toronto Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle Tuesday, Sept. 15, because of his career numbers against the pitcher.

Fantasy Tip: Bourn ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has five hits in 11 at-bats (.455) against Buehrle. It's not exactly a large sample size, so to expect Bourn to be a lock on FantasyScore is foolish. Maybin ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) could return to the lineup tomorrow, but take a wait-and-see approach with him in your daily lineups.

Braves | Cameron Maybin remains out vs. Mets

Fri, 11 Sep 2015 13:26:22 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Cameron Maybin (eye) is not in the starting lineup Friday, Sept. 11. OF Michael Bourn is starting in center field and batting eighth against New York Mets SP Steven Matz Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Maybin ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) appeared to be nearing a return, so expect him back sooner than later. Bourn ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) warrants no attention at FantasyScore Friday. He has a sub-.500 OPS over 26 games since joining the Braves.
