Braves' Julio Teheran: Now slated to start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Teheran is now scheduled to start Wednesday against the Mets following Tuesday's postponement, Kevin McAlpin of 680 The Fan reports.

The Braves will keep their entire rotation in order, with everyone simply moving back a day following the rainout. After three straight quality starts to open the 2017 campaign, Teheran was rocked four seven runs over four innings against Washington his last time out. He has an 18:11 K:BB in 23 innings so far this season.

Braves' Lane Adams: Called up to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams had his contract purchased from Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday, Kevin McAlpin of the Braves Radio Network reports.

The speedy outfielder pushed the envelope in the minors by batting .333 in his first 13 games, so the Braves decided to give him a chance for a cup of coffee with the big-league club. He'll replace the recently-DFA'd Chase d'Arnaud on the Braves roster, although Adams seems to be destined for a bench role moving forward unless injuries strike. That being said, he could be a cheap source of steals in deeper leagues if the Braves opt to use him liberally in pinch-running situations.

Braves' Chase d'Arnaud: DFA'd by Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

D'Arnaud was designated for assignment by the Braves on Tuesday, Kevin McAlpin of the Braves Radio Network reports.

This is a somewhat surprising move, as d'Arnaud had been playing fairly well in a reserve super-utility role. In just 11 games played and 10 plate appearances, the 30-year-old was also batting .375 and picked up five runs, but it ultimately wasn't enough to save his spot on the roster. Lane Adams will come up to replace him in Atlanta, which will likely keep d'Arnaud in an organizational depth role unless injuries strike the big-league club.

Braves' Dansby Swanson: Braves remaining patient
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson is unlikely to be demoted despite his poor start at the plate, Michael Cunningham of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. "He's a young player," Braves hitting coach Kevin Seitzer said Monday. "He's very talented. He knows he belongs here. We all know he belongs here. He doesn't have the type of swing that is conducive to slumps. He's just trying a little bit too hard right now, which is normal. Every hitter goes through this. They want to get off to a really good start and when they don't you see them try to start trying a little bit too hard."

The numbers back up the idea that the young shortstop is simply having some really bad luck to begin 2017. Swanson's .173 BABIP is over 200 points below his 2016 mark in the majors, while his hard-hit ball and line-drive percentages are comparable to last year's performance. The 23-year-old may already have been dropped in shallow fantasy leagues by impatient GMs, but the Braves are still confident that hits will begin falling in for Swanson very soon, making him a potentially worthwhile player to stash on your bench if you have room to wait for his production to come around.

Braves' Emilio Bonifacio: Assumes pinch hitter, defensive replacement role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonifacio has two hits in 18 at-bats to begin 2017.

Bonifacio sees the bulk of his playing time as a pinch hitter and defensive replacement during the late innings of ballgames. Once a threat on the basepaths, the 32-year-old stole only two bases over the previous two seasons. In 2016, Bonifacio hit .211 over 43 plate appearances.
