Braves | Jace Peterson out vs. lefty

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 13:35:58 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 24. SS Pedro Ciriaco is starting at second base and batting second with OF Cameron Maybin moving up to the leadoff spot against St. Louis Cardinals SP Tim Cooney.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is slumping in July with a .169/.239/.231 slash line over 73 plate appearances, and he should be avoided in the majority of fantasy formats until he turns it around at the dish. Maybin's ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) fantasy value isn't overly impacted, and he remains a mid-tier outfield option. Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) checks out as a cheap flier for FantasyScore contests Friday.

Braves | Pedro Ciriaco playing third base

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 12:16:45 -0700

Atlanta Braves INF Pedro Ciriaco will bat sixth and play third base against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta Sunday, July 19. INF Juan Uribe is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is 5-for-24 with one double during the month of July and is hitless in one career at-bat versus Arrieta. He should be ignored for FantasyScore purposes.

Braves | Jace Peterson out of lineup

Sat, 11 Jul 2015 10:40:38 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa Saturday, July 11. INF Pedro Ciriaco will play second base and bat second.

Fantasy Tip: Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is batting .296 with 10 RBIs this season but has fared better against righties and is hitless in one career at-bat versus De La Rosa. Use him in FantasyScore only if you're in desperate need of cap relief.

Braves | Andrelton Simmons sitting

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 15:08:28 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, July 7, against the Milwaukee Brewers. SS Pedro Ciriaco will start in the field and hit seventh in the order against RHP Tyler Cravy.

Fantasy Tip: Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting .333 against right-handed pitchers through 47 plate appearances. While Ciriaco lacks power and upside, FantasyScore owners can be content with a hit and possibly a run scored at the minimum price.

Braves | Jace Peterson sitting vs. Brewers

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 13:54:43 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 6. SS Pedro Ciriaco is starting at second base and batting sixth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Kyle Lohse Monday.

Fantasy Tip: With Peterson ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) out, the Braves' everyday lineup all move up a slot with Cameron Maybin ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) leading off. It is a slight boost for Maybin. Against Loshe, he and Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) are viable FantasyScore plays. Ciriaco is especially interesting at a shallow position and a minimum price.

Braves | Juan Uribe will not start

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 08:48:54 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Juan Uribe is not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels Sunday, July 5. SS Pedro Ciriaco will start at third base and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Uribe ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) likely is receive a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting .321 in his limited playing time this season, but owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options to use.

Braves | Juan Uribe sitting out

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 07:58:46 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Juan Uribe is not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke Sunday, June 28. SS Pedro Ciriaco will start at third base and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Uribe ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) should return to the lineup in the near future. Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has done very well in his limited playing time this month with a .458 batting average and six RBI. Owners on FantasyScore could consider Ciriaco if they want to save money but there may be better options available.

Braves | Andrelton Simmons sitting out

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 12:22:21 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 25. SS Pedro Ciriaco is starting at shortstop and hitting eighth against Washington Nationals SP Doug Fister.

Fantasy Tip: Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has a .298 average (14-for-47) as a utility infielder for the Bravos. However, he doesn't have much power and his offensive abilities are limited, making him a very weak play on FantasyScore, especially while at the bottom of the lineup.

Braves | Pedro Ciriaco fills in admirably

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 23:01:40 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Pedro Ciriaco started Wednesday, June 17, against the Boston Red Sox in place of the injured SS Andrelton Simmons (hand).

Fantasy Tip: Ciriaco ($1,600; or 3.2% of cap) had three hits in four at-bats with a double and two RBIs as a fill-in. He could be a cheap FantasyScore option with some upside if he gets another chance to start.

Braves | Andrelton Simmons not starting

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 12:10:32 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons (hand) is not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly Wednesday, June 17. SS Pedro Ciriaco will start at shortstop and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Simmons ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) probably is considered day-to-day because of his injured hand. Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is coming off a 2-for-4 performance in his last game with one RBI, but owners on FantasyScore should be able to find a better option for their lineups.
