Braves | Alex Wood pitches well Wednesday

Wed, 27 May 2015 22:54:41 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Alex Wood allowed one run on seven hits in seven innings against the Los Angeles Dodgers Wednesday, May 27. He struck out six batters and walked two during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Wood ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has pitched well in each of his last two games but will have a 3.50 ERA entering his next start. He is scheduled to face the Arizona Diamondbacks in his next outing and could be a solid option on FantasyScore.

Braves | Juan Uribe in lineup vs. former team

Wed, 27 May 2015 15:47:27 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Juan Uribe is batting fifth and playing third base against the Los Angeles Dodgers Wednesday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Uribe ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is having an awful season with just six runs, a home run, six RBI and a .596 OPS over 87 plate appearances. Add that he is facing Zack Greinke, and there is little incentive to roll with Uribe in any fantasy format Wednesday.

Braves | Juan Uribe to Atlanta is official

Wed, 27 May 2015 13:53:03 -0700

The Atlanta Braves officially acquired 3B Juan Uribe and RP Chris Withrow from the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for 3B Alberto Callaspo, SP Eric Stults and RP Ian Thomas Wednesday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Uribe ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) projects to split third base duties with Chris Johnson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap), and until one of them significantly out performs the other, it'll likely remain a platoon. Niether player offers FantasyScore owners a lot of upside, at this point, and they're low-end third base options in NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues.

Braves | Chris Johnson returning Wednesday

Wed, 27 May 2015 12:01:25 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Chris Johnson (hand) will return from the disabled list Wednesday, May 27, a day earlier than expected after the team traded away 3B Alberto Callaspo.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) may see more playing time at the hot corner now with Callaspo out of the picture, but it's unclear how the Braves will work in their new acquisition, Juan Uribe. In his first game back against Los Angeles Dodgers starter Zack Greinke, plan on avoiding Johnson at FantasyScore.

Braves | Nick Markakis has good history against Greinke

Wed, 27 May 2015 10:11:06 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Nick Markakis is 5-for-17 with a home run in his career against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke, who he faces Wednesday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the good track record against Greinke, Markakis ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is a pretty risky FantasyScore selection today against Greinke, who has been lights out all season long to this point.

Braves | Freddie Freeman struggling

Tue, 26 May 2015 18:00:47 -0700

Atlanta Braves 1B Freddie Freeman entered the series against the Los Angeles Dodgers Monday, May 25, with just four RBI in his past 13 games. Freeman is 14-for-54 with no home runs, a .365 on-base percentage and a .315 slugging percentage during the stretch.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has played extremely well at Dodgers Stadium in his career, and he may be able to break out of the slump. FantasyScore owners should be waiting for a positive sign.

Braves | A.J. Pierzynski out Tuesday

Tue, 26 May 2015 17:36:41 -0700

Atlanta Braves C A.J. Pierzynski is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, May 26, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. C Christian Bethancourt gets the start behind the plate, and he will bat eighth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Bethancourt ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is not worthy of FantasyScore consideration, especially with Clayton Kershaw on the mound for the Dodgers.

Braves | Jonny Gomes starting in LF

Tue, 26 May 2015 17:22:52 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Jonny Gomes will start in left field and bat fifth in the order Tuesday, May 26, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. OF Todd Cunningham is out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is riding a four-game hit streak in which he has gone 5-for-14. Gomes hasn't driven in any runs, but he has scored three times in that span. FantasyScore owners can consider Gomes for GPP use.

Braves | Alberto Callaspo a late scratch

Mon, 25 May 2015 17:08:54 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Alberto Callaspo (undisclosed) was a late scratch Monday, May 25, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. SS Pedro Ciriaco replaced Callaspo at third base, and he will bat seventh in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has just three hits through 20 plate appearances and he should be avoided on FantasyScore.

Braves | A.J. Pierzynski out of lineup Monday

Mon, 25 May 2015 13:52:17 -0700

Atlanta Braves C A.J. Pierzynski is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 25. C Christian Bethancourt is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Bethancourt ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has struggled at the plate this season, but it appears Pierzynski will get a night off regardless. Do not play Bethancourt in your lineup.

Braves | Jonny Gomes in lineup Monday

Mon, 25 May 2015 13:49:10 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Jonny Gomes is in the starting lineup Monday, May 25, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. OF Todd Cunningham is on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) looks like he is spelling Cunningham for a regular night off. Gomes has a .300 average in the last week, so he may be a decent low-cost option for your daily lineup.

Braves | Alex Wood available Sunday

Sat, 23 May 2015 17:41:14 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Alex Wood (illness) could pitch out of the bullpen Sunday, May 24, if needed, manager Fredi Gonzalez said Saturday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: Wood ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) appears to be recovering well from the stomach virus that forced him to miss his last start, and if he doesn't throw in relief Sunday, he should make a start sometime next week. That being said, he has been up and down so far this season, and he is only worth considering at FantasyScore when he draws a solid matchup.

Braves | ATL had interest in Jonathan Lucroy

Sat, 23 May 2015 11:32:02 -0700

The Atlanta Braves expressed interest in trading for Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy (toe) recently but were told that he is untouchable.

Fantasy Tip: Lucroy ($5,100, 10.2% of cap), who is widely considered to be one of the best catchers in baseball, is expected to return from the disabled list in a few weeks. Christian Bethancourt ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has been a disappointment both offensively and defensively, leading to A.J. Pierzynski ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) receiving the bulk of the playing time behind the plate in Atlanta.

Braves | Eric Stults a late-notice starter

Fri, 22 May 2015 13:10:03 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Eric Stults is starting against the Milwaukee Brewers Friday, May 22, after SP Alex Wood (illness) was scratched due to a stomach virus.

Fantasy Tip: Stults ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has a 1-4 record with a 5.36 ERA, a 1.29 WHIP and a 5.6 K/9 over 40 1/3 innings and seven starts this season. FantasyScore players should aim higher Friday, especially with the number quality options available in the starting pitcher player pool.

Braves | Alex Wood scratched vs. Brewers

Fri, 22 May 2015 13:05:12 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Alex Wood (illness) was scratched from his start against the Milwaukee Brewers Friday, May 22, due to a stomach virus. SP Eric Stults will start for Atlanta Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Wood ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday, especially daily contests. Check back for updates on when he'll make his next start. Stults ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation flier for FantasyScore players Friday. He is currently sporting a 5.36 ERA, a 1.29 WHIP and a 5.6 K/9.
