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.

Braves | A.J. Pierzynski sitting vs. Pirates

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 13:25:21 -0700

Atlanta Braves C A.J. Pierzynski is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 26. C Ryan Lavarnway is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Pierzynski ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is bouncing back slightly after a disastrous May. Still, his seasonal value is tied to being a low-end option in two-catcher, cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. Lavarnway ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a career .192 hitter through 312 at-bats, so FantasyScore players can fade him without concern.

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 13:56:19 -0700

Braves | Christian Bethancourt sent down

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 09:14:01 -0700

Atlanta Braves C Christian Bethancourt was optioned to Class AAA Gwinnett Monday, June 15. C Ryan Lavarnway was brought up from Gwinnett in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Bethancourt really struggled with a .208-1-9 line. A.J. Pierzynski, who has slowed after a hot start, has vastly outplayed the developing prospect. At $4,200 (8.4% of cap), Pierzynski's .204-1-7 line since April just doesn't cut it on FantasyScore.
