Atlanta Braves OF Jason Heyward, who is hitting only .083, had the night off Tuesday, April 9. OF B.J. Upton went hitless and is batting .103.
Fantasy Tip: Justin Upton is carrying both Heyward and Upton in the outfield to start the season. It's not uncommon to see players get off to horrible starts to begin the year. It isn't time to panic, but if you have other options, it may not be a bad idea to keep them out until you see a spark.

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons (thumb) is back in the lineup Monday, April 8, but OF B.J. Upton is in the leadoff spot. Simmons is hitting eighth against the Miami Marlins. Simmons went 3-for-17 with a double, walk, a stolen base and a .222 on-base percentage in four games in the leadoff spot. Upton was 3-for-6 with a home run, two stolen bases, three walks and no strikeouts in two games at leadoff over the weekend. Manager Fredi Gonzalez is playing it day-to-day with his lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez said moving Upton up to leadoff also made more sense with Freddie Freeman (oblique) on the disabled list. It's unknown if this will continue, but based off Upton's weekend performance, it's a good bet.

Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria said the team is in a better place with SP James Shields and OF B.J. Upton gone. "There was a lot of history with B.J. and Shields and this organization, and I think there were some things that it was tough for them to get beyond," Longoria said. "As much as you try to instill the new way, some of those things, it was tough to get some of those thoughts out of their head. And so, I think, obviously they were great players, but as far as an over-arching belief in what we try to do here, I think with the new people that we have now, it's a completely new belief in what we're trying to do here."
