LF,RF - ATL
Abraham Almonte went 1-for-3 with an RBI double and a walk, in Thursday's game against the Cards.
Nobody knows if Almonte can continue at the pace he is on, slashing .300/.463/.550, but one can say this is the best he has played over his career. He's a journeyman, filling in for Marcell Ozuna, and he's making the most of this opportunity. Good for him. He's batting in the cleanup spot which presents an interesting fantasy opportunity for managers. With all of the injuries out there, somebody can use him. Nothing wrong with going with the hot hand.
Abraham Almonte went 2-for-3 with two doubles, a walk, an RBI, and a run scored in Wednesday's game against the Red Sox.
Almonte is getting an extended run in the lineup with the Marcell Ozuna absence and he is batting fourth in the order. He has a very good eye at the plate plus he is taking advantage of this opportunity and playing well, with an OBP of .460. So, this creates an opportunity for fantasy managers. Batting fourth, he hits ahead of Austin Riley and Dansby Swanson, both of whom have proven they can hit and drive in runs. Almonte is playing his way into deep mixed league conversation, certainly in NL-only formats.
Abraham Almonte went 1-for-3 with an RBI double and two runs scored in Tuesday's game against the Red Sox.
Almonte is getting an extended run playing left field for the Braves and is making the most of the opportunity. He's slashing .265/.444/.471 thus far and the OBP stands out. He has a keen eye at the plate and can draw walks as well as hit singles and doubles. The thing is, he doesn't steal bases so he's dependent on others to get him around to score. So, if OBP gets points in fantasyland, he might be useful in NL-only formats.
