Braves | Ender Inciarte nearing return

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 10:05:40 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte (hamstring) is expected to be back from the disabled list no later than the team's next homestand, and he could return early next week in New York.

Fantasy Tip: Inciarte should've been stashed everywhere, so get ready to return him to all lineups when he's ready. His return is bad news for the youngster Mallex Smith, who may be returned to the minors. Smith has really only been useful in deeper leagues for his speed, as he's hit just .188 (9-for-48) with two stolen bases.

Braves | Ender Inciarte upping baseball activities

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 14:41:48 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte (hamstring) will increase his running during extended-spring training games this week and could begin a rehab assignment by the end of the week.

Fantasy Tip: Inciarte hit .303 and stole 21 bases last season, and he projects to return similar numbers batting leadoff for Atlanta in 2016. Mallex Smith and Drew Stubbs will continue to have fleeting value in deep leagues until Inciarte returns. Stay tuned for updates.

Braves | Ender Inciarte taking at-bats

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 15:18:40 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte (hamstring) is hitting in extended spring training games, but he's not running the bases yet. He's still 10-14 days from returning.

Fantasy Tip: Inciarte is worth stashing for his steals potential. His return would likely push Mallex Smith back to the minors. He's hitting just .162 in 37 at-bats.

Braves | Ender Inciarte could be out longer

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 16:12:01 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte (hamstring) could be out another two weeks before he's ready to return, according to manager Fredi Gonzalez. Inciarte is eligible to come off the disabled list Saturday, April 23. "He has done baseball activities, (increased) the running a little bit, not much, but he's making progress," Gonzalez said. "I say the end of the month (tentatively) because I don't know how much we are going to push him."

Fantasy Tip: Mallex Smith and Drew Stubbs are sharing time in center field with Inciarte out, with Smith seeing the majority of starts. Both Smith and Stubbs are speedsters, with Smith being much more attractive in the short and long term as one of Atlanta's prospects.

Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, April 10, due to a strained left hamstring.

Braves | Ender Inciarte out Saturday

Sat, 09 Apr 2016 12:17:30 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte (leg) is not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez on Saturday, April 9. OF Drew Stubbs will start in center and bat seventh while SS Erick Aybar moves up a spot to replace Inciarte atop the order.

Fantasy Tip: Stubbs was pretty much useless for fantasy purposes last year (.195 batting average and five home runs in 78 games between the Texas Rangers and Colorado Rockies) but is only a season removed from a 15-homer, 20-steal campaign. He's not worth a start against Martinez on Saturday but could be worth stashing in deeper leagues if Inciarte is forced to miss multiple games.

Braves | Ender Inciarte injured Friday

Fri, 08 Apr 2016 17:10:15 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte (leg) left the game against the St. Louis Cardinals Friday, April 8, after suffering an apparent leg injury. He hit an infield single in the bottom of the first inning and was briefly evaluated on the field before leaving under his own power, although he appeared to have a slight limp as he went down the dugout stairs into the clubhouse.

Fantasy Tip: If Inciarte is forced to miss several games, OF Drew Stubbs could replace him in center field. Keep checking back for updates on Inciarte's status.

Braves | Ender Inciarte won't be in strict platoon

Sat, 02 Apr 2016 11:34:10 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte will not play in a strict platoon with OF Drew Stubbs in center field, although Inciarte is expected to sit versus tough left-handed starting pitchers.

Fantasy Tip: Inciarte hit .303 with six home runs, 45 RBIs and 21 steals in 132 games for Arizona last season, although he only hit .227 in 141 at-bats versus southpaws. He should be available in the later middle rounds of mixed-league drafts and he could reach 30 steals if he can improve his performance against lefties.

Braves | Ender Inciarte expected to hit leadoff

Tue, 01 Mar 2016 16:59:31 -0800

Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte has been targeted to hit leadoff ever since the Braves acquired him from the Arizona Diamondbacks in the offseason. However, he hit only .227/.253/.277 against left-handers last year, so he could be involved in a platoon in center field. OF Emilio Bonifacio could spell Inciarte in center and leadoff, but Atlanta doesn't have many other options.

Fantasy Tip: Inciarte must improve against lefties in order to maximize his speed and relevance in mixed fantasy leagues. With full-time duty the talented outfielder could approach 30 stolen bases, and that will be attractive in the middle rounds of drafts.

Braves | Ender Inciarte keeping CF warm

Mon, 15 Feb 2016 21:56:36 -0800

Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte is expected to be the team's primary center fielder heading into the season, at least until prospect OF Mallex Smith is ready. Then, the two could potentially share the duties.

Fantasy Tip: Inciarte could still be moved at some point, but for now he can be depended upon as a No. 4 or 5 fantasy outfielder in most formats. Smith is a good long-term keeper option, and worth stashing in deeper NL-only formats.
