Ervin Santana posts quality start in losing effort
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Braves pitcher Ervin Santana turned in a quality start in a losing effort Monday night against the Nationals, dropping to 14-9 on the year. He allowed two runs on three hits and two walks while striking out six over six innings of a 4-2 defeat.

Over his last three starts covering 17 innings, Santana has allowed 11 earned runs. He owns a 3.74 ERA and a 1.28 WHIP over 29 starts (185 1/3 innings). His next start will come Sunday at home against the Mets.

Fantasy Analysis | 1410815731
Jason Heyward still lacking thump
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

Just before the All-Star break, Jason Heyward started to pick up his batting average, and he hasn't really cooled off since. Over his last 54 games, Heyward is batting .329 with a .387 on-base percentage. Sadly for his Fantasy owners, it's come with very little power.

While Heyward has hit 12 doubles and a triple over that span, he has launched only three home runs. Given that the Braves' outfielder has been an inconsistent power hitter over his five years in the majors, it's reasonable for owners to start wondering if that consistency is ever going to materialize.

In my latest blog post, I have taken a look at Heyward's offensive trends this season to get an early read on what sort of value he will have next season. His ability to make contact (32 strikeouts over his last 207 at-bats) and steal make him a must-start option right now, but given his lack of power, Heyward will be something less than an early-round option in 2015.

Evan Gattis remains out of the lineup
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Braves catcher Evan Gattis continued to sit Monday against the Nationals with a case of strep throat. Christian Bethancourt once again started in his place. It's the seventh straight game Gattis has missed with the illness.

Gattis was originally expected to miss just one series but wasn't able to return even as a DH at Texas over the weekend.

Mike Minor has major issues in loss to Rangers
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Braves starter Mike Minor had major problems Sunday in Texas. He surrendered five runs on eight hits in 4 2/3 innings to lower his record to 6-11 as the playoff chances of his team continued to dwindle.

Minor was hanging in there until a brutal fifth inning in which he allowed three singles, two doubles, one walk and six runs - all after retiring the first two batters. He finished with three walks and one strikeout. Minor, who was coming off six straight quality starts, will try to turn it around Saturday against the Mets.

Julio Teheran takes complete-game loss Saturday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Braves pitcher Julio Teheran picked up a complete-game loss Saturday, giving up three unearned runs on three hits and one walk in eight innings while striking out six in his team's 3-2 defeat against the Rangers.

Teheran (13-12) took a no-hitter into the sixth inning but saw the frame extended by an error with two outs, and the Rangers pushed three runs across the late in that same inning to take the lead. Teheran owns a 2.89 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 174:48 K:BB ratio in 209 innings. He's scheduled to face the Mets Friday.
