Atlanta Braves

NL East

Touki Toussaint was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett by the Braves Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Toussaint had a good spring showing and the reason he was sent down is that he still has options to do so. He'll have plenty of opportunity at the big league level when play resumes.

Will Smith pitched an inning Wednesday, allowing a walk and recording two strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact: Mark Melancon will likely start the year as the 9th inning guy, with Smith pitching the eighth, but manager Brian Snitker has numerous options this year with their bullpen being one of the best in the majors.

Adam Duvall went 1-for-2 with a run scored in Wednesday's game against the Twins.

Fantasy Impact: Duvall is another brave who has had a solid spring, hitting .310 thus far. He will very likely be one of the five outfielders the team will roster to start the season.

Ozzie Albies went 1-for-3 with an RBI in Wednesday's game against the Twins.

Fantasy Impact: Albies is doing well at the plate this spring, batting .303 thus far and has the upside for an All-Star type year in 2020.

Max Fried allowed two hits and five walks while striking out three over 4 2/3 innings against the Twins Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: The five walks are a bit much but he pitched around the damage and his breaking ball and changeup looked solid, although he does need to work on the control. He'll be fine this year.

Freddie Freeman was scratched from Tuesday's lineup and should return Friday, according to manager Brian Snitker. (Source: David O'Brien/Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The reason is to attend to a family matter, according to the team.


Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. went 1-for-2 with a walk, a run scored, and a stolen base in Tuesday's win over the Houston Astros. The steal was his second of the Spring.

Fantasy Impact: Acuna has gotten off to a slow start this Spring as he is batting just .115, but fantasy owners should have plenty of patience with the young superstar after he batted .280 with 41 home runs and 37 stolen bases last season.

Braves starter Ian Anderson tossed three scoreless innings in Tuesday's matchup against the Baltimore Orioles, allowing no hits or walks while striking out two.

Fantasy Impact: Anderson is having a strong camp but is expected to start the season in the minor leagues, where he will continue to work on his secondary pitches.

Christian Pache launched a three-run homer in Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Orioles.

Fantasy Impact: Pache is hitting .269 with an .863 OPS this spring. He will surely begin the season in Triple-A but could debut with the Braves at some point this summer. He'll be a must-add in re-draft leagues whenever that happens.

Mark Melancon allowed two hits and recorded two strikeouts over two innings Tuesday against the Astros.

Fantasy Impact: Melancon has been lights-out so far this spring. He and Will Smith should get the late-inning work this year.

Category: Game Recaps


Chris Martin held the Astros hitless and scoreless while striking out two in Tuesday's spring game.

Fantasy Impact: Martin has pitched really well, better than Shane Greene, and should make the 40-man roster when camp breaks later this month.

Category: Game Recaps


Mike Soroka allowed one hit and three walks over four-plus innings against the Astros Tuesday. Soroka walked a batter in the fifth before hitting his pitch limit and removed from the game.

Fantasy Impact: Soroka is looking to build on the successful campaign that he had last year and is the team's ace. The expectations are high but Soroka is primed to deliver an All-Star season. Draft him with confidence.

Braves reliever A.J. Minter was optioned to minor league camp on Monday, the team announced. (Source: Atlanta Braves on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Minter came with high expectations in 2019, but injuries and poor performances put a quick end to those. With the Braves having added a number of high leverage arms to their bullpen over the course of the last year, Minter has a long way to go before he will see meaningful innings in Atlanta. He will head to minor league camp with a chance to return to the Braves at some point in 2020, but he has a long road ahead of him.

Felix Hernandez allowed six hits, one run (earned), and two walks while fanning six over five innings Monday against the Red Sox.

Fantasy Impact: Not a great start for Hernandez, but the damage was limited. The concern came when he faced the Boston lineup the second time through the order because they were able to hit him pretty well. The Braves have three pitchers vying for two rotation spots to start the season and it appears Sean Newcomb has sewn up one of the spots, so the remaining spot is a duel between Hernandez and Kyle Wight.

Sean Newcomb allowed three hits and two walks while fanning four over four shutout innings Sunday against the Yankees.

Fantasy Impact: It's likely that Newcomb will break camp as a member of the starting rotation for the Braves but the team would rather see him in the bullpen where he has tremendous value as a lefty reliever.

Mike Foltynewicz allowed one hit and two walks while striking out six over 3 2/3 innings Saturday against the Rays.

Fantasy Impact: Folty needed a good spring outing after his implosion against the Red Sox. The man has excellent stuff, no doubt. But can he become consistent, can he control his emotions? The answer will determine how 2020 and beyond go for him.

Shane Greene allowed one hit and a walk while striking out three over two innings against the Red Sox Friday.

Fantasy Impact: This was a welcome sight as Greene has really struggled this spring. The Braves are hopeful Greene can be a part of what might be the best bullpen in baseball this year.

Austin Riley went 1-for-2 with a solo homer, a walk, and a strikeout in Friday's game against the Red Sox. For the spring, he's batting .333 with two homers, four strikeouts, and four RBI over 21 at-bats in eight games.

Fantasy Impact: Riley is battling hard for the third base job against Johan Camargo. Both are having strong spring camps and are neck-to-neck thus far.

Category: Game Recaps


Kyle Wright allowed three hits, two runs (earned), and two walks while striking out five over 3 1/3 innings Friday against the Red Sox.

Fantasy Impact: This was a good outing even though the stats were middling. A couple of the hits just made it through the infield, etc. Wright is battling for a rotation spot but with Sean Newcomb and Felix Hernandez somewhat ahead of him he might start the season at Triple-A. But he has done very well this spring so he'll be in the majors before long, even as a spot starter. This spring he has a 2.16 ERA thus far.

Category: Game Recaps


New Braves outfielder Marcell Ozuna went hitless again on Tuesday and is now 0-for-11 with six strikeouts to start the Spring.

Fantasy Impact: Ozuna did not have a great 2019 and bet on himself by signing a one-year deal with the Braves. He batted .243 with the Cardinals last season but managed to swat 29 home runs in just 130 games.
