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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
