Braves | Jace Peterson falls in lineup

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 12:55:49 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson is batting sixth in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Kevin Gausman Monday, July 27.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has been struggling at the plate this month and could be helped by moving lower in the starting lineup. He is hitting .176 this month and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Braves | Jace Peterson out vs. lefty

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 13:35:58 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 24. SS Pedro Ciriaco is starting at second base and batting second with OF Cameron Maybin moving up to the leadoff spot against St. Louis Cardinals SP Tim Cooney.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is slumping in July with a .169/.239/.231 slash line over 73 plate appearances, and he should be avoided in the majority of fantasy formats until he turns it around at the dish. Maybin's ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) fantasy value isn't overly impacted, and he remains a mid-tier outfield option. Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) checks out as a cheap flier for FantasyScore contests Friday.

Braves | Jace Peterson coasts into second half

Mon, 13 Jul 2015 11:59:22 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson has a .200/.280/.333 slash line with just 11 runs and 11 RBI over his past 27 games and 121 plate appearances. He also has a 24.0% strikeout rate during the span.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has become entrenched in the leadoff spot for the Braves this season, but he'll likely need to up his on-base percentage and batting average to keep the role going forward. FantasyScore players should view Peterson as risky start until he shows signs of life at the dish. In seasonal leagues, Peterson should be reserved for deep mixed leagues.

Braves | Jace Peterson back in lineup

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 11:44:49 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson is back in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis Sunday, July 12, batting second.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) is just 7-for-38 (.184) this month with two RBIs and should be avoided in FantasyScore until he breaks out of his slump.

Braves | Jace Peterson out of lineup

Sat, 11 Jul 2015 10:40:38 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa Saturday, July 11. INF Pedro Ciriaco will play second base and bat second.

Fantasy Tip: Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is batting .296 with 10 RBIs this season but has fared better against righties and is hitless in one career at-bat versus De La Rosa. Use him in FantasyScore only if you're in desperate need of cap relief.

Braves | Jace Peterson sitting vs. Brewers

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 13:54:43 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 6. SS Pedro Ciriaco is starting at second base and batting sixth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Kyle Lohse Monday.

Fantasy Tip: With Peterson ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) out, the Braves' everyday lineup all move up a slot with Cameron Maybin ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) leading off. It is a slight boost for Maybin. Against Loshe, he and Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) are viable FantasyScore plays. Ciriaco is especially interesting at a shallow position and a minimum price.

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 16:23:34 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson is 7-for-11 (.636) with 18 RBI with the bases loaded this season.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) broke out of a 1-for-21 slump with a couple knocks Saturday. He's a solid midrange option on FantasyScore.

Braves | Jace Peterson extends hitting streak

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 19:27:56 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson went 3-for-5 with a home run, three RBI, three runs scored and a steal to extend his hit streak to eight games in a 10-8 loss to the New York Mets Sunday, June 14.

Fantasy Tip: He has five multi-hit games during the streak, and it is worth noting that is began right after Peterson ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) received a cortisone shot in his thumb. He is offering great production for the price at FantasyScore.

Braves | Jace Peterson hot of late

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 15:29:30 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson is hitting .381 in 21 at-bats since he received a cortisone shot June 4 for his thumb.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson's ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) resurgence at the plate is holding off top prospect Jose Peraza as summer approaches. Peterson doesn't have much power (one home runs), but he's stolen six bases and continues to reach base at the top of the batting order. He's a midrange second base option on FantasyScore.

Braves | Atlanta likes Jace Peterson at 2B

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 09:33:13 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson is likely to remain at second base despite 2B Jose Peraza knocking on the doorstep of a callup, in the opinion of beat writer David O'Brien. The Braves really like Peterson's defense at second base.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has had a solid season and is a low-end matchup play at second base on FantasyScore.
