Braves | Atlanta resting four starters

Sun, 08 May 2016 09:42:37 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Kelly Johnson, C A.J. Pierzynski, 2B Reid Brignac and OF Mallex Smith are not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin Sunday, May 8. C Tyler Flowers will start at catcher and is batting fourth in the lineup. OF Jeff Francoeur will start in left field and is batting fifth. SS Chase d'Arnaud will start at second base and is batting seventh, while 2B Daniel Castro will start at this base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: None of the players in the starting lineup has posted great numbers this season. Francoeur is hitting .370 with three RBI against left-handed pitchers and could be a desperation option for owners in daily fantasy leagues, but the other three players can be avoided.

Braves | Ender Inciarte returns to action Saturday

Sat, 07 May 2016 10:58:39 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte is batting second and playing left field against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Shelby Miller Saturday, May 7. In addition, INF Reid Brignac is batting fifth and playing third base, while INF Daniel Castro will bat seventh and play second base. OF Adonis Garcia and 2B Kelly Johnson are receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Inciarte is making his first MLB appearance since suffering a strained left hamstring nearly one month ago but should be avoided in most fantasy formats so that he can prove that he is healthy. Brignac and Castro should be viewed as desperation cap relief in daily fantasy games, although Brignac is hitting in a favorable spot in the batting order against a starter who has struggled mightily in 2016.

Braves | Reid Brignac survives scare

Mon, 02 May 2016 22:30:58 -0700

Atlanta Braves INF Reid Brignac (face) was hit in the face by a ball after a grounder deflected off second base and skipped up Monday, May 2, against the New York Mets. He was checked by a trainer and remained in the game.

Fantasy Tip: Brignac was just recalled from the minors and is only worth using in the deepest of NL-only fantasy play and DFS play as a salary saver for when he starts.

Braves | Jace Peterson sent down

Mon, 02 May 2016 14:36:15 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson was optioned to Class AAA Gwinnett Monday, May 2. SS Chase d'Arnaud, OF Matt Tuiasosopo and SS Reid Brignac were all called up from Gwinnett.

Fantasy Tip: Atlanta has plenty of options for the keystone. Including the recent call-ups, Daniel Castro and Kelly Johnson could also see time at the keystone. As was the case with Peterson, none are really attractive outside of cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues as middle infield depth, though.

Braves | Reid Brignac earns a start

Mon, 02 May 2016 13:30:24 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Reid Brignac is starting at second base and batting sixth against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon Monday, May 2. 2B Jace Peterson will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: It'll be Brignac's first start of the year for Atlanta. He hit only .222 (18-for-81) with one home run and 10 RBI for the Philadelphia Phillies in 2015 and is a bottom-of-the-barrel daily option Monday evening. Against the light-hitting Braves, Colon is a nice cheap selection as your second starter in DFS.

Marlins | Martin Prado resting

Sun, 03 May 2015 08:26:01 -0700

Miami Marlins 3B Martin Prado will rest Sunday, May 3, against the Philadelphia Phillies. Marlins SS Reid Brignac will start at third base and hit sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Brignac ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will have some potential as a GPP play on FantasyScore as he'll take on a right-handed pitcher in Phillies SP Severino Gonzalez. Brignac is still only a .232-hitter against righties and doesn't have a hit this season, so owners could do better, even at the minimum price.

Marlins | Four competing for two bench spots

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 00:00:13 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Jordany Valdespin, 3B Don Kelly, 2B Donovan Solano and SS Reid Brignac are in contention for the final two bench spots.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy value here depends on how much playing time these bench players get and whether the starters get hurt. In NL-only leagues it may be worth snapping up the bench winners as handcuff picks for the starters, and in FantasyScore or daily leagues it's worth checking players out if they are in the lineup.
