Braves | Mike Foltynewicz's surgery details

Tue, 22 Sep 2015 08:59:13 -0700

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz (rib, arm) had surgery to remove half a rib after he was hospitalized with blood clots in his right arm. He's expected to be released from the hospital Thursday, Sept. 24, and will continue to receive treatment of blood thinners for at least six weeks.

Fantasy Tip: That's a wrap on Foltynewicz's ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) 2015 season. You can drop him anywhere you still owned him, and you can ignore him on FantasyScore to close out the year.

Braves | Mike Foltynewicz undergoes procedure

Mon, 21 Sep 2015 13:45:04 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz (illness, arm) underwent a procedure for blood clots in his arm Monday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Foltynewicz's ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) fantasy value is plummeting, as time is running out for him to return, and his role is still unknown, if he is capable of returning. Plus, Foltynewicz owns a career 5.64 ERA, so there isn't a lot to be excited about anyway.

Braves | Mike Foltynewicz could start or relieve

Fri, 11 Sep 2015 00:23:24 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz (illness) could return to the starting rotation or pitch in relief when he comes back to the lineup. Manager Fredi Gonzalez has not made the decision as of yet.

Fantasy Tip: Foltynewicz ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) loses his FantasyScore value if he pitches as a reliever, and in other leagues he could be effectively shelved for the rest of the year. If he starts, remember the Braves' struggles and only use him in key matchup situations.

Braves | Mike Foltynewicz throws from 90 feet

Thu, 10 Sep 2015 13:01:47 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz (illness) threw from 90 feet on flat ground Thursday, Sept. 10. He is currently on the disabled list with an illness.

Fantasy Tip: Foltynewicz ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) last pitched Tuesday, Aug. 25. He holds very little fantasy value pitching for the worst-offensive team in the league over the past month and owning a 5.71 ERA. He is a desperation stash in NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues.

Fantasy Tip: With Foltynewicz on the mend, Williams Perez ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) will make a start Wednesday.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez out Tuesday

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 13:46:11 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez (knee) is out of the game Tuesday, Aug. 25, due to a sore right knee. OF Matt McBride is batting seventh against Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) just hurt the knee the day before, so the Rockies aren't taking any chances and are keeping him out. He should be stashed away on your bench in regular leagues as well. McBride ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is worth a low-cost flier. He has a .208 mark in August but his bat has warmed up in the past week (.357).

Braves | Mike Foltynewicz looks for rebound

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 22:49:24 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz is scheduled to start the Colorado Rockies Tuesday, Aug. 25. He has allowed 21 runs in 21 innings in four starts in the month of August, allowing at least six runs in three of his past four outings.

Fantasy Tip: Foltynewicz ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is attractive for FantasyScore players due to his low salary, but he has been terrible lately. Avoid him until he can get untracked, especially on nights like Tuesday where there are a full slate of games.

Braves | Mike Foltynewicz likely to enter rotation

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 11:39:01 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz is likely to start in the place of SP Manny Banuelos (elbow) Wednesday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: Folty has a 5.27 ERA, 1.61 WHIP and 52 strikeouts in 54 2/3 innings over nine starts for the Braves this season. His stay in the Atlanta rotation could be short, depending on how Banuelos heals. Folty has plenty of strikeout upside, but a matchup against the Baltimore Orioles tomorrow is very risky for FantasyScore users.

Braves | Mike Minor will undergo surgery

Tue, 12 May 2015 16:40:58 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Minor (shoulder) will undergo surgery this week, according to Bill Shanks of FOX Sports. SP Mike Foltynewicz should remain in the starting rotation for the time being.

Fantasy Tip: Foltynewicz ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) picked up the win in each of his first two major league starts, but did so with an ERA of 5.23. Foltynewicz does have nine strikeouts through 10 and one-third innings pitched, showing his upside. Foltynewicz is an option in NL-only leagues, and he should be owned in dynasty leagues.

Braves | Mike Foltynewicz tries for another win

Mon, 11 May 2015 22:04:14 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz looks for his second straight win over the Cincinnati Reds Tuesday, May 12. He allowed two earned runs over five innings in a win May 1.

Fantasy Tip: Foltynewicz ($3,700; or 7.4% of cap) is a decent mid-level FantasyScore play if you want to save money to spread across your hitter spots.
