Braves | No Andrelton Simmons

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 12:09:19 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons (undisclosed) is not the starting lineup Thursday, July 24, against the Miami Marlins. SS Ramiro Pena is playing shortstop and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Simmons from any daily-transaction lineups. He has just three hits since the All-Star break, so it is likely a scheduled rest day to help him refocus.

Braves | Manager talks lineup order

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 14:53:26 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Tommy La Stella is manager Fredi Gonzalez's preferred No. 2 hitter, as opposed to SS Andrelton Simmons.

Fantasy Tip: La Stella's run-scoring potential is higher hitting in the two spot, increasing his fantasy value. Simmons struggles to get on base, so he is better suited lower in the order, where he'll see more RBI opportunities.
