Braves | Sean Newcomb struggling

Tue, 08 Mar 2016 11:27:54 -0800

Atlanta Braves SP Sean Newcomb has allowed 11 of the 15 batters he's faced this spring to reach base with six walks and five hits allowed.

Fantasy Tip: It's clear that Newcomb will need more minor league seasoning to start 2016, despite his success in the minors last year. He's one of the Braves' top pitching arms now, though, and he could see a taste of MLB action later this year. Newcomb is only an option in dynasty/keeper formats.

Braves | Sean Newcomb shaky in first start

Thu, 03 Mar 2016 15:30:39 -0800

Atlanta Braves SP Sean Newcomb allowed two hits and walked four in just one-plus inning in his Grapefruit League debut Thursday, March 3, and 11 of his 31 pitches went for strikes. Newcomb came over in the deal that sent SS Andrelton Simmons to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, and the southpaw is ranked as the Braves' No. 2 prospect. He's made only seven starts above Class A, though.

Fantasy Tip: Newcomb looked dominant in the minors last year with the Angels, and his fastball/changeup combination is daunting for hitters. With Atlanta in the rebuilding process, Newcomb could get a look later this year. He should be on your radar as an owner in a dynasty/keeper league.

Braves | Atlanta's rotation competition

Mon, 29 Feb 2016 14:57:23 -0800

Atlanta Braves SP Julio Teheran is expected to make his third straight Opening Day start this year, followed by SPs Bud Norris and Matt Wisler. SPs Williams Perez and Manny Banuelos are the top candidates for the final two rotation spots, along with SPs Aaron Blair, Sean Newcomb, Tyrell Jenkins and Lucas Sims. SPs Kyle Kendrick or Jhoulys Chacin are veterans who might make more sense.

Fantasy Tip: The Braves are clearly in rebuilding mode, and this is one of the weaker starting rotations in the bigs to begin the year. Teheran has value as a sleeper in mixed leagues, but all the others have major questions and are better left to those in NL-only leagues.

Angels | Jose Briceno acquired from ATL

Thu, 12 Nov 2015 17:48:20 -0800

Updating a previous report, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have also acquired C Jose Briceno from the Atlanta Braves, along with SS Andrelton Simmons, to complete a deal for SS Erick Aybar, Ps Sean Newcomb and Chris Ellis and cash considerations.

Fantasy Tip: The 23-year-old Briceno is not considered a major prospect. He hit .183 with four home runs and 20 RBIs in 311 at-bats for Class A Carolina last season and has no fantasy value.

Braves | Atlanta acquires Erick Aybar, pitchers

Thu, 12 Nov 2015 15:58:08 -0800

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Erick Aybar was acquired by the Atlanta Braves Thursday, Nov. 12, in exchange for SS Andrelton Simmons. The Braves also acquired P Sean Newcomb, P Chris Ellis and cash considerations.

Fantasy Tip: Aybar likely will be the starting shortstop for the Braves this season, while Newcomb likely will be part of the pitching staff in some role. Aybar could be a middle infield option in deeper leagues next season because of his consistent playing time. Newcomb could be an option in NL-only and keeper leagues.

Angels | Andrelton Simmons acquired by Angels

Thu, 12 Nov 2015 15:57:05 -0800

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons was acquired by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Thursday, Nov. 12, in exchange for SS Erick Aybar, P Sean Newcomb, P Chris Ellis and cash considerations.

Fantasy Tip: Simmons should be the Angels' everyday shortstop after the trade, but it probably will not affect his fantasy value for the 2016 season. Simmons could be a middle infield option in deeper mixed leagues next season but probably should not be a shortstop option.
