Fantasy Tip: Garcia was recently recalled by the Braves and has gone 1-for-7 at the plate since returning. Owners in most fantasy leagues should be able to find better players to use and can avoid Garcia.

Braves | Several ATL regulars sitting out Saturday

Sat, 28 May 2016 10:16:52 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte, SS Erick Aybar and INF Chase d'Arnaud are not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Wei-Yin Chen Saturday, May 28. OF Mallex Smith will bat leadoff and play center field, 3B Adonis Garcia will bat seventh and play the hot corner and INF Daniel Castro will bat eighth and play shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is batting .288 with two doubles, two triples, three home runs and eight RBI in 66 at-bats this month and makes a decent outfield option in NL-only and deep mixed leagues because of his speed. Garcia and Castro are batting a combined .180 (11-for-61) with two RBI this month and should be avoided in all fantasy formats.

Braves | Adonis Garcia recalled by Braves

Fri, 27 May 2016 11:29:53 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B/OF Adonis Garcia was recalled from Class AAA Gwinnett Friday, May 27, and 2B Reid Brignac was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia was initially sent down to work on his defense in left field, so it remains to be seen how Atlanta will use him this time around, but he's likely to see regular playing time. He was hitting .260 with a home run and eight RBI in 104 at-bats earlier this year and should be added for his power potential in deep mixed and NL-only leagues if he's available.

Braves | Ender Inciarte returns to action Saturday

Sat, 07 May 2016 10:58:39 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte is batting second and playing left field against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Shelby Miller Saturday, May 7. In addition, INF Reid Brignac is batting fifth and playing third base, while INF Daniel Castro will bat seventh and play second base. OF Adonis Garcia and 2B Kelly Johnson are receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Inciarte is making his first MLB appearance since suffering a strained left hamstring nearly one month ago but should be avoided in most fantasy formats so that he can prove that he is healthy. Brignac and Castro should be viewed as desperation cap relief in daily fantasy games, although Brignac is hitting in a favorable spot in the batting order against a starter who has struggled mightily in 2016.

Braves | Adonis Garcia sent down

Sat, 07 May 2016 09:29:10 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Adonis Garcia was sent to the minors Friday, May 6.

Fantasy Tip: The problem isn't with Garcia's bat, it's his defense that has been the liability. The Braves want him to work on his D in left field, and he'll likely be back with the Braves again at some point. Reid Brignac and Daniel Castro could split time at the hot corner for the time being, but neither are whizzes with the bat and should be ignored aside from the deepest of NL-only leagues.

Braves | Atlanta resting three starters

Sun, 01 May 2016 10:44:58 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Daniel Castro, C A.J. Pierzynski and OF Jeff Francoeur are not in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP John Lackey Sunday, May 1. OF Kelly Johnson will start at second base and is batting fifth in the lineup. C Tyler Flowers will start at catcher and is batting sixth. 3B Adonis Garcia will start in left field, while 2B Jace Peterson will start at third base and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is hitting better over the last few days but is not a great option since he has a .186 average this season. Flowers has gone hitless in his last six at-bats but could be used in two-catcher leagues since he is hitting .281 with four RBI. Peterson has struggled at the plate and can be avoided in all leagues.

Braves | Adonis Garcia will be DH

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 14:30:54 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Adonis Garcia will serve as the designated hitter against Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright Wednesday, April 27. SS Daniel Castro will start at third base, while 2B Kelly Johnson will start at second base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has recorded three hits in his last six games and is hitting .179 this season. Owners should be able to find better players for their lineups and can avoid Johnson.

Braves | Adonis Garcia will see outfield starts

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 13:32:43 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Adonis Garcia will play left field against the majority of right-handed pitchers with 2B/OF Kelly Johnson, 2B Jace Peterson and SS Daniel Castro splitting time between second and third base. OF Jeff Francoeur will play left field against left-handed pitchers with Garcia playing third base.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia has a respectable .287/.320/.469 slash line through 269 career plate appearances, and he can provide solid depth in the majority of seasonal leagues. However, he also has just six runs and six RBI to start the season, so there is limited upside. Peterson, Johnson, Castro and Francoeur are nothing more than low-end options in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues.

Braves | ATL waiting on Adonis Garcia's glove

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 12:23:20 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Adonis Garcia owns the worst fielding percentage (.793) of any major leaguer with at least 120 chances as a third baseman dating back to 1910. However, as the only Braves' only position player hitting better than .290, Atlanta is willing to deal with it as long as it believes his offense is superior to his defense.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia has six errors on 29 chances this year, but the Braves are exercising patience in part because they lack other quality offensive options and know he is playing out of position. The 31-year-old is going to struggle to be anything more than a low-upside starting option in fantasy because his supporting cast doesn't figure to give him a lot of RBI opportunities or drive him in all that often.

Braves | Three-hit game for Adonis Garcia

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 22:32:22 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Adonis Garcia went 3-for-5 with a run scored and RBI out of the cleanup spot Friday, April 22, against the New York Mets.

Fantasy Tip: The Cuban hot corner man has back-to-back multi-hit games, and he has managed six games with two or more hits through 16 outings. He is a solid fantasy option in NL-only leagues and deeper mixed formats.
