Atlanta Braves OF Jason Heyward (back) and C Evan Gattis are not in the starting lineup Friday, August 1, against the San Diego Padres. INF/OF Emilio Bonifacio is in the starting lineup batting eighth and playing right field.
Fantasy Tip: Heyward's back injury is starting to look like it could turn into a disabled list stint. Continue to check back for updates on his status. Gattis is likely just having a scheduled off-day. Bonifacio will see near-everyday at-bats while Heyward is injured.

The Atlanta Braves have acquired INF/OF Emilio Bonifacio and RP James Russell from the Chicago Cubs.
Fantasy Tip: Bonifacio will fill a utility role for the Braves. He is unlikely to see everyday at-bats, if the Braves remain healthy. With semi-regular at-bats, Bonifacio retains NL-only and deep mixed league value, due to his base stealing ability. Bonifacio could also push Tommy La Stella for playing time at the keystone position. Russell fills the left-handed-pitching void in the Braves' bullpen, but he has no fantasy value.

Updating a previous report, Chicago Cubs OF Emilio Bonifacio will be available to play Wednesday, July 30, but manager Rick Renteria is choosing to keep him out of the lineup until the trade deadline passes.
Fantasy Tip: This is similar to what the Boston Red Sox did today in choosing to skip Jon Lester's start amid trade rumors. Be prepared to be without Bonifacio for maybe another day.
