Braves | Tyrell Jenkins solid in no-decision

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 21:44:58 -0700

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.

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 15:44:02 -0700

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.

Braves | Tyrell Jenkins solid in first MLB start

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 15:00:09 -0700

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.

Braves | Tyrell Jenkins facing Phillies Wednesday

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 13:20:59 -0700

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.

Braves | John Gant leaves start Monday

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 16:56:07 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP John Gant (oblique) had to leave his start Monday, June 27, versus the Cleveland Indians after experiencing discomfort following a pitch made to SP Trevor Bauer. He departed with one runner on and nobody out in the top of the third inning. SP Tyrell Jenkins came in to replace him.

Fantasy Tip: Hopefully this doesn't turn out to be something that sidelines Gant for an extended period, as he's actually looked pretty decent since entering the rotation after beginning the year in the bullpen. If Gant has to miss any time, Jenkins, a top prospect, would be one of the lead candidates to take his spot. He's worth stashing in NL-only leagues for his potential if this is indeed the case.

Braves | Tyrell Jenkins called up

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 07:28:20 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Tyrell Jenkins was recalled from Class AAA Gwinnett Thursday, June 16. P Casey Kelly was optioned to Gwinnett.

Fantasy Tip: Jenkins has pitched out of the bullpen the last four outings for Gwinnett, which makes one assume he'll do the same with the big club. Jenkins has been a top prospect as a starter for a while. He could contribute in K's and ratios in NL-only leagues, but he's a watch-list player for now.

Braves | Atlanta's rotation competition

Mon, 29 Feb 2016 14:57:23 -0800

Atlanta Braves SP Julio Teheran is expected to make his third straight Opening Day start this year, followed by SPs Bud Norris and Matt Wisler. SPs Williams Perez and Manny Banuelos are the top candidates for the final two rotation spots, along with SPs Aaron Blair, Sean Newcomb, Tyrell Jenkins and Lucas Sims. SPs Kyle Kendrick or Jhoulys Chacin are veterans who might make more sense.

Fantasy Tip: The Braves are clearly in rebuilding mode, and this is one of the weaker starting rotations in the bigs to begin the year. Teheran has value as a sleeper in mixed leagues, but all the others have major questions and are better left to those in NL-only leagues.
