Atlanta Braves C A.J. Pierzynski is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 19. C Ryan Lavarnway is behind the dish and is batting eighth against San Diego Padres SP Tyson Ross.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners should have no reason to use Lavarnway ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) other than to save valuable cap space for the rest of your lineup. He's hitting a combined .206 (14-for-68) with a home run and five RBI this year with the Baltimore Orioles and Braves.

Braves | No A.J. Pierzynski against the Giants

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 15:20:23 -0700

Atlanta Braves C A.J. Pierzynski is not in the starting lineup against the San Francisco Giants Wednesday, Aug. 5. C Ryan Lavarnway is starting behind the plate and batting seventh against Giants SP Madison Bumgarner Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Pierzynski ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) in all fantsy formats Wednesday, as he receives the night off against tough-lefty Bumgarner ($9,500, 19.0% of cap). Lavarnway ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is a risky FantasyScore play against Bumgarner. He does have a respectable .273/.351/.424 slash line over 37 plate appearances this season, though.

Braves | A.J. Pierzynski will be DH

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 13:00:14 -0700

Atlanta Braves C A.J. Pierzynski will serve as the designated hitter against Baltimore Orioles SP Kevin Gausman Monday, July 27, and is batting fourth in the lineup. C Ryan Lavarnway will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Pierzynski ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) remains in the lineup even though he receives a day off from the field. He is hitting .345 this month and is a solid option for owners on FantasyScore. Lavarnway ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has played well since joining the Braves, but owners should be able to find better options to use.

Braves | A.J. Pierzynski sitting vs. lefty

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 12:20:05 -0700

Atlanta Braves C A.J. Pierzynski is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 3. C Ryan Lavarnway is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Lavarnway ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has drawn in against southpaws recently, and he projects a low-end catcher option for FantasyScore players Friday. Similarly, in seasonal leagues, Pierzynski ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) checks out as bottom-tier catcher in NL-only, cavernous mixed and two-catcher formats. Over his last 81 plate appearances, Pierzynski has an underwhelming .256/.284/.397 slash line.
