Braves | Control issues for Mike Foltynewicz

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 21:04:34 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz allowed three runs on four hits while walking five and striking out five over 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the Colorado Rockies Thursday, July 21.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the control issues, plenty of pitchers have had worse outings at Coors Field. Foltynewicz has shown enough potential to be owned in NL-only formats and deeper mixed leagues.

Rockies | Ryan Raburn earns a start

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 13:48:52 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Ryan Raburn is in the lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz on Saturday, July 16, batting sixth and playing left field in favor of INF/OF Daniel Descalso.

Fantasy Tip: Foltynewicz is coming off a career-high 10 strikeout performance and may be the best fantasy play of the two, although he is far from a recommended fantasy start after the Rockies scored 11 runs Friday. Raburn might be getting the nod today after last night's pinch-hit grand slam in the ninth inning, but he has struggled for most of the season and generally hit southpaws much better than right-handers throughout his career.

Braves | Atlanta sets post-break rotation

Wed, 13 Jul 2016 12:27:56 -0700

Atlanta Braves SPs Lucas Harrell, Mike Foltynewicz and Julio Teheran will face the Colorado Rockies Friday, July 15, Saturday, July 16, and Sunday, July 17, accordingly.

Fantasy Tip: Luckily, the series is at Turner Field and not Coors Field, so Teheran is a viable option in all fantasy formats after a strong fist half (2.98 ERA and 8.1 K/9). Harrell has allowed just two runs through 13 2/3 innings over his two starts and could be a streaming option in deep leagues and a low-priced flier in daily contests. Similarly, Foltynewicz owns a 3.67 ERA over his nine starts and is a potential own in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues.

Braves | Mike Foltynewicz socked around

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 19:18:15 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz allowed five earned runs, eight hits and a walk with five strikeouts and four home runs allowed over 5 2/3 innings in a loss Tuesday, July 5, against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Fantasy Tip: The Phillies have been on fire lately, but that's no excuse for the performance of Foltynewicz. He was serving up batting practice. He should only be trusted in the deepest of NL-only fantasy leagues at this point.

Braves | Mike Foltynewicz to start Thursday

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 08:59:12 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz (elbow) will come off the 15-day disabled list Thursday, June 30, to start against the Miami Marlins instead of making a second rehab start for Class AAA Gwinnett. As a result, SP Julio Teheran has been pushed back a day to Friday, July 1, to give him an extra day of rest.

Fantasy Tip: Folty has had an up-and-down year for Atlanta with a 3.51 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 7.6 K/9 in six starts. He certainly has potential but is pitching for one of the worst teams in the league, and he shouldn't be trusted against Miami in his first start off the DL today.

Braves | Mike Foltynewicz to rehab Thursday

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 20:02:46 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz (elbow) will make what is expected to be his final minor-league rehab start for Class AAA Gwinnett Thursday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Foltynewicz might be back in early July, but it's uncertain if he'll be back in the rotation, long relief, etc. With the team's injury issues in the starting rotation, he is likely to be slotted back in, but he remains nothing more than an option in the deepest of NL-only fantasy formats.

Braves | Mike Foltynewicz ready for rehab start

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 13:38:20 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz (elbow) will make a start with Class AAA Gwinnett this weekend and will likely require at least one more outing before rejoining the Braves.

Fantasy Tip: When healthy, Foltynewicz is nothing more than a cavernous mixed and NL-only option at this stage of the game. Take a wait-and-see approach with him elsewhere. Stay tuned for updates while he works his way back to the majors.

Braves | Mike Foltynewicz throwing off mound

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 13:54:19 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz (elbow) has thrown off a mound and will face hitters this weekend and then move to a couple of rehab starts. He said he's been feeling good.

Fantasy Tip: Folty hasn't been great but hasn't been terrible in his six starts for Atlanta this year (3.51 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, 7.6 K/9). But on this bad ball club and with him still maturing as a pitcher, he's best left to NL-only leagues when he's back in the rotation. Take a wait-and-see approach with him elsewhere.

Braves | Mike Foltynewicz progressing well

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 14:09:31 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz (elbow) is progressing well and is expected to face hitters by the end of the week.

Fantasy Tip: Foltynewicz is likely best left to deep mixed and NL-only leagues, and it isn't out of the question to be selective with who you start him against. Stay tuned for updates.
