Braves | Eury Perez playing left field

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 12:22:45 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Eury Perez is batting seventh and starting in left field against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta Sunday, July 19.

Fantasy Tip: Perez ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is batting .283 with three RBIs in 60 at-bats this season and should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief.

Braves | Eury Perez draws into lineup

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 14:55:55 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Eury Perez is starting in left field and hitting eighth against Washington Nationals SP Doug Fister Wednesday, July 1. OF Kelly Johnson is receiving the start at first base.

Fantasy Tip: Perez ($1,700, 3.4% of cap), who has eight hits in 28 at-bats (.286) is strictly a source of salary cap relief as a deep sleeper on FantasyScore. Johnson ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is a midrange outfield commodity in daily games, and all six of his home runs have come against righties this year. However, Fister is a ground-ball pitcher, leaving Johnson with limited upside tonight.

Braves | Cameron Maybin sitting out vs. Pirates

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 12:51:35 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Cameron Maybin is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 26. OF Eury Perez is playing center field and batting second against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Maybin ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is likely just receiving a night off, as he has been one of the more pleasant surprises in fantasy baseball this season. At first glance, Perez ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) should likely be avoided at FantasyScore, and at best, viewed as a desperation source of cap relief. He did hit .296 and steal 28 bases through 60 games with Class AAA Gwinnett this season, though, so there is upside.

Braves | Eury Perez making third start

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 13:50:49 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Eury Perez will make his third consecutive start in left field Saturday, June 20, against the New York Mets. Perez will hit eighth in the batting order against RHP Noah Syndergaard.

Fantasy Tip: Perez was hitting .296 in 260 plate appearances in Class AAA before joining the Braves lineup. Perez is a major threat on the base paths, but he isn't a FantasyScore option until he gets a little more confident at the plate.

Braves | Eric Young off to good start

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 16:44:41 -0800

Atlanta Braves OF Eric Young Jr. has gone 0-for-3 with three walks, a hit by pitch and two stolen bases in two spring training games. Young is expected to compete with OFs Todd Cunningham and Eury Perez for the starting center field job while Melvin Upton Jr. (foot) is out of the lineup. Young has not played much in center field but believes he can become a quality center fielder with hard work during the spring.

Fantasy Tip: Young probably has an edge over the other candidates because of his major league experience. Young could be a later-round option in drafts if he wins the job because of his stolen base potential.

Braves | Eury Perez to start in CF for ATL?

Fri, 27 Feb 2015 15:29:18 -0800

Atlanta Braves OF Eury Perez is the early favorite to start in center field to begin the year with OF Melvin Upton Jr. (foot) likely sidelined until at least May 1, in the opinion of MLB.com's Mark Bowman

Fantasy Tip: Perez tallied just 10 plate appearances in the majors last season, and he isn't an impact player in standard leagues. That said, he's bested 20 stolen bases in the minors each of the past five seasons and could be a cheap stolen base source to start the year for NL-only gamers.

Braves | Melvin Upton has sesamoiditis

Fri, 27 Feb 2015 13:48:17 -0800

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Braves OF Melvin Upton Jr.'s (foot) MRI exam Friday, Feb. 27, revealed sesamoiditis, or inflammation in the bone behind the ball of the left foot. He'll be in a short-leg cast for two weeks and a walking boot for roughly four to six weeks. Upton will miss most of spring training and is expected to start baseball activities in early April. OFs Todd Cunningham, Eury Perez and Zoilo Almonte are the likely candidates to fill in in center field with Upton out.

Fantasy Tip: Although Upton's batting average tanked the last two years, he was still a sleeper candidate at the end of mixed drafts for his stolen base abilities. That won't be the case now, as he could miss the first month of the season. Don't forget about Eric Young Jr. figuring into the outfield mix, at least as a platoon candidate. He or Almonte will likely be your best fantasy bets in Upton's absence, but their main value will come in NL-only leagues.

Braves | Eric Young looking to win a job

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 14:06:16 -0800

Atlanta Braves OF Eric Young Jr., who hit a career-worst .229 with one home run and 30 stolen bases in 100 games for the New York Mets in 2014, has the chance to compete with OFs Zoilo Almonte and Eury Perez for a spot as a backup outfielder or platoon job in left field. He could also play some second base in a pinch. Not working in Young's favor is that Almonte is out of minor league options.

Fantasy Tip: Young is mainly valuable for his speed, but without a spot that gives him consistent at-bats, he's not much use to fantasy owners. Keep an eye on how the outfield battles go this spring. If he wins a spot as a platoon partner in left field, he could be a deep sleeper in deep mixed leagues.
