Atlanta Braves SP Tyrell Jenkins was pretty good in his start Tuesday, July 19, versus the Cincinnati Reds. The right-hander went six innings, allowing two runs on four hits, including a homer. He also walked four and struck out two.
Fantasy Tip: Not a terrific outing, but certainly an acceptable one from the 24-year-old making just his second career major league start. He's yielded only three combined runs over those two assignments, which should place him on the radar in deep formats. Unfortunately, he was robbed of his first career victory when Jim Johnson blew the save in the ninth, but there's certainly some potential here despite the team he pitches for.

Atlanta Braves SP Tyrell Jenkins will start Tuesday, July 19, against the Cincinnati Reds.
Fantasy Tip: The start will be in Great American Ball Park, and Jenkins hasn't done a lot to swoon fantasy players into using him in the rough matchup.

Atlanta Braves SP Tyrell Jenkins lasted 4 2/3 innings in his first major league start Wednesday, July 6, against the Philadelphia Phillies, but he was solid, allowing only a single run on four hits and a walk. He also struck out one, en route to picking up a no-decision.
Fantasy Tip: Jenkins showed some promise at Class AAA Gwinnett, so perhaps this fine first start will get him going, should the Braves elect to keep him in the rotation. He won't pick up many wins or strikeouts, however, which should limit his usefulness to deep NL-only formats.

Atlanta Braves SP Tyrell Jenkins will start against the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday, July 6.
Fantasy Tip: Jenkins hasn't made a start in the majors, so this likely has the makings of a bullpen outing with Jenkins pitching five innings in a best-case scenario. View him as a desperation start in all fantasy formats Wednesday. However, he is a highly regarded prospect, so monitoring his results is encouraged for keeper/dynasty and NL-only owners.
