Braves | Erick Aybar activated from disabled list

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 08:54:44 -0700

The Atlanta Braves have activated SS Erick Aybar (foot) from the 15-day disabled list. He is in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester Sunday, June 12, batting eighth. In a corresponding move, INF Daniel Castro was optioned to Class AAA Gwinnett.

Fantasy Tip: Aybar is batting .182 with six RBI over 148 at-bats and is nothing more than middle infield depth for NL-only fantasy leagues at this stage of his career. He is basically serving as a veteran placeholder until either Dansby Swanson or Ozzie Albies is ready to take over the position on an everyday basis.

Braves | Adonis Garcia out vs. Padres

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 17:02:07 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Adonis Garcia is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 7. SS Chase d'Arnaud is starting at third base and is hitting second against San Diego Padres SP Colin Rea. Also, SS Daniel Castro draws into the lineup at the 6 and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: D'Arnaud is on a nice little streak here, but his bat is limited for fantasy owners, and he's nothing more than a deep sleeper selection in daily games without much power to speak of. Castro is a similar defense-first player and should be avoided everywhere Tuesday.

Braves | Four players sitting for Atlanta

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 06:32:40 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Gordon Beckham, OF Nick Markakis, 2B Kelly Johnson and C A.J. Pierzynski are not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner Thursday, June 2. SS Chase d'Arnaud will start at second base and is batting second. OF Jeff Francoeur will start in right field and is batting fourth in the lineup. C Tyler Flowers will start at catcher and is batting sixth, while 2B Daniel Castro will start at shortstop and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: All four players in the lineup have received decent playing time against left-handed pitching this season. Francoeur and d'Arnaud have posted solid numbers over the last seven days and should be considered sleeper options in daily fantasy leagues. Flowers and Castro should be avoided in most leagues since they have struggled at the plate.

Braves | Daniel Castro sitting out

Mon, 30 May 2016 08:23:28 -0700

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.
