    • Braves' Kurt Suzuki: Sitting series finale
      By RotoWire Staff

      Suzuki is out of the lineup Sunday against the Cubs. Suzuki has been behind the plate for the first three games of the series, but the 33-year-old will sit the series finale in favor of David Freitas. Both should see a reduction in playing time when Tyler Flowers (hand) eventually returns, though a concrete timetable has yet to be determined.

    • Braves' Kurt Suzuki: Not in Game 2 lineup
      By RotoWire Staff

      Suzuki is out of the lineup for Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against Philadelphia. Suzuki will get the second contest of the twin bill off after going 0-for-4 and catching R.A. Dickey during Game 1. In his place, David Freitas makes his major-league debut, batting eighth in the order.

    • Suzuki will start at catcher and bat fifth in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Phillies, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Braves manager Brian Snitker has been splitting the starts at catcher lately between Suzuki and Tyler Flowers, but Suzuki should be in store for an uptick in at-bats for at least the next week or so following Flowers' placement on the disabled list Wednesday with a left wrist contusion. The Braves recalled David Freitas from Triple-A Gwinnett in a corresponding move to offer some additional depth behind the plate, and though he's expected to start the nightcap Wednesday, he's not a serious threat to push Suzuki for regular action. Despite serving in a part-time role in the second half, Suzuki has been valuable to fantasy owners with a .304 average, eight home runs and 15 RBI across 69 at-bats. His utility will only increase while Flowers is out of the picture.

    • Braves' Kurt Suzuki: Hits 14th homer in loss
      By RotoWire Staff

      Suzuki went 1-for-4 with a solo home run during Monday's loss to Seattle. Suzuki continues to post solid fantasy numbers despite splitting time behind the dish with Tyler Flowers. Monday's homer was his seventh through just 17 second-half games, and Suzuki sports an impressive .268/.344/.537 slash line for the year. While the other foot is likely to drop at some point, Suzuki is currently moving the needle in the majority of settings.

    • Suzuki went 3-for-4 with a double, a two-run homer, a walk and two runs Saturday against the Reds. Suzuki's 13th blast of the season pulled the Braves within three runs in the seventh inning of a home loss. Despite being a part-time player, he's been a strong option at catcher with a .269 batting average along with a .527 slugging percentage.
