Braves | Adonis Garcia recalled by Braves

Fri, 27 May 2016 11:29:53 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B/OF Adonis Garcia was recalled from Class AAA Gwinnett Friday, May 27, and 2B Reid Brignac was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia was initially sent down to work on his defense in left field, so it remains to be seen how Atlanta will use him this time around, but he's likely to see regular playing time. He was hitting .260 with a home run and eight RBI in 104 at-bats earlier this year and should be added for his power potential in deep mixed and NL-only leagues if he's available.

Braves | Gordon Beckham, Kelly Johnson sitting

Wed, 25 May 2016 12:52:46 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2Bs Gordon Beckham and Kelly Johnson are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 25. SS Chase d'Arnaud is starting at the hot corner and is hitting second, while 2B Reid Brignac is starting at second and batting seventh against Milwaukee Brewers SP Junior Guerra.

Fantasy Tip: D'Arnaud and Brignac should be very low on your potential list of lineup selections in daily setups. D'Arnaud has a little more luster as a deep sleeper because of his position in the lineup, but you can surely find better options on a day with a full slate of games.

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.
