Braves | Mike Foltynewicz called up

Mon, 02 May 2016 10:24:42 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz was called up from Class AAA Gwinnett in order to start against the New York Mets to replace SP Bud Norris in the starting rotation Monday, May 2. Norris will work in long relief for now. Foltynewicz had a 2.05 ERA with 20 strikeouts, 14 walks and 12 hits allowed in 22 innings over four starts for Gwinnett.

Fantasy Tip: Outside of NL-only leagues, Folty is a guy to watch, as his strikeout upside is tempered by home run allowance and shaky command. His dominant stuff has yet to translate at the major league level, and you'll likely need to remain patient with him.

Braves | Bud Norris could be booted from rotation

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 11:36:08 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Bud Norris could be bumped from the starting rotation soon, and SP Mike Foltynewicz looks like he could be the favorite to take Norris' spot. Foltynewicz could start in Norris' spot against the New York Mets Monday, May 2. Foltynewicz was scratched from his start at Class AAA Gwinnett Friday, April 29. Norris has an 8.74 ERA in his first five starts.

Fantasy Tip: Norris has zero fantasy upside at this point and should be left to the waiver wire. Folty appears to be past his blood clot issues and had 20 K's in 22 innings for Gwinnett. However, but he also has at least four walks in three of his four outings in the minors. He has raw strikeout stuff but allows a lot of fly balls. Take a wait-and-see approach. Only add him in NL-only leagues for now if he gets the opportunity.

Braves | Bud Norris crushed yet again

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 22:31:58 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Bud Norris allowed five runs - four earned - and four hits with two walks over four innings in a loss Friday, April 22, against the New York Mets. He threw just 53 of his 88 pitches for strikes.

Fantasy Tip: Norris hasn't posted a quality start since his first outing of the season April 6. He cannot be trusted in anything but the deepest of NL-only fantasy formats.

Braves | Bud Norris punched around again

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 21:48:54 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Bud Norris allowed five runs and nine hits over five innings in a loss Monday, April 11, against the Washington Nationals.

Fantasy Tip: Norris has lost each of his two starts while allowing eight runs and 15 hits over 12 innings with a 1.58 WHIP. He should be avoided in all but the deepest of NL-only fantasy leagues.

Braves | Bud Norris looks to turn it around

Mon, 04 Apr 2016 19:13:59 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Bud Norris makes his regular season debut Wednesday, April 6, against the Washington Nationals. He went 3-11 splitting time between the Baltimore Orioles and San Diego Padres last season, and he was just 1-3 with a 6.46 ERA in six spring starts.

Fantasy Tip: Norris doesn't give fantasy owners a lot of confidence, and he should only be used in the deepest of NL-only fantasy formats at this time.

Braves | Bud Norris gets knocked around

Tue, 15 Mar 2016 18:56:44 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Bud Norris allowed six earned runs over three innings in his Grapefruit League spring start against the Detroit Tigers Tuesday, March 15. Norris had his ERA balloon to 7.88 as a result.

Fantasy Tip: Norris hasn't looked great this spring, but occasionally veterans use the spring games to tinker and work on mechanics, new pitches, etc. Don't be terribly alarmed by his spring numbers, although he'll need to show some improvement if he is to be relied upon in anything outside of deeper NL-only fantasy play.

Braves | Atlanta's rotation competition

Mon, 29 Feb 2016 14:57:23 -0800

Atlanta Braves SP Julio Teheran is expected to make his third straight Opening Day start this year, followed by SPs Bud Norris and Matt Wisler. SPs Williams Perez and Manny Banuelos are the top candidates for the final two rotation spots, along with SPs Aaron Blair, Sean Newcomb, Tyrell Jenkins and Lucas Sims. SPs Kyle Kendrick or Jhoulys Chacin are veterans who might make more sense.

Fantasy Tip: The Braves are clearly in rebuilding mode, and this is one of the weaker starting rotations in the bigs to begin the year. Teheran has value as a sleeper in mixed leagues, but all the others have major questions and are better left to those in NL-only leagues.

Braves | ATL has two rotation spots up for grabs

Sat, 20 Feb 2016 12:05:08 -0800

Atlanta Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said two spots in the starting rotation will be up for grabs during spring training. SPs Julio Teheran, Matt Wisler and Bud Norris are likely to fill three of the rotation spots.

Fantasy Tip: The battle for the final two spots is expected to include non-roster invitees such as Kyle Kendrick and Jhoulys Chacin, as well as Williams Perez, Mike Foltynewicz and Manny Banuelos. Prospects such as Sean Newcomb, Aaron Blair, Chris Ellis and Lucas Sims could also receive consideration. Teheran and Wisler could be available in the later rounds of drafts for NL-only and deep mixed leagues, while the other pitchers mentioned are likely to go undrafted.

Padres | Bud Norris adjusting to relief role

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 10:17:21 -0700

San Diego Padres P Bud Norris has tossed four scoreless innings of relief since joining the team, reaching 97 mph on the radar gun in his most recent outing. He said he likes the role, although he would like to return to starting one day. "It's definitely a different job," Norris said. "I'm enjoying it. It's a good group of guys; they've really helped me with the transition. So so far, so good. But I know someday, somehow, I'll get back into a rotation, wherever it can be."

Fantasy Tip: Norris said several teams offered him starting jobs after he was released by the Orioles, although those clubs could not guarantee him a job at the major league level. He has little value in most fantasy leagues as long as he's pitching in a long relief role.

Orioles | Bud Norris cut

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 10:09:13 -0700

The Baltimore Orioles designated P Bud Norris for assignment Friday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: Norris went 2-9 with a 7.06 ERA in 18 games (11 starts) this year, after winning 15 games last season as a key component of Baltimore's starting rotation. Drop him in all fantasy formats.
