      Braves' Kurt Suzuki: Takes seat in series finale

      Kurt Suzuki is out of the lineup Sunday against the Nationals.The Atlanta Braves are continuing to operate their usual rotation behind the plate, so it's now Suzuki's turn to sit out after Tyler Flowers was on the bench for the previous game Friday. The lack of a full-time role hasn't prevented Suzuki from being a useful fantasy asset, particularly in two-catcher formats. He's hitting a respectable .268 over 252 plate appearances this season while chipping in eight home runs, 32 RBI and 31 runs.

      Braves' Kurt Suzuki: Clubs eighth homer Wednesday

      Kurt Suzuki went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Blue Jays.The homer was his eighth of the year and first in June, but Suzuki has still put together a strong .364/.417/.545 slash line through 10 games on the month despite not leaving the yard until Wednesday. He'll continue splitting starts with Tyler Flowers, but both catchers have shown enough with their bats to have value even in shallower fantasy formats despite the cap on their playing time.

      Braves' Kurt Suzuki: Will be available in Toronto

      Kurt Suzuki (head) passed all concussion tests following his early departure from Sunday's 4-1 win over the Padres and will be available for Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.While catching in the second inning Sunday, Suzuki took a bat to the side of the head when Padres hitter Raffy Lopez swung and missed at strike three. The Atlanta Braves pulled Suzuki from the contest as a precaution, but since he exhibited no concussion-like symptoms and apparently escaped with minimal soreness on the side of his head, he won't be forced to miss any time. Suzuki will be available to catch or serve as a designated hitter Tuesday, but it seems more likely the Braves will restrict him to DH duty for a day as a safeguard.

      Braves' Kurt Suzuki: Sustains head injury Sunday

      Kurt Suzuki was lifted from Sunday's game against the Padres after he was struck in the side of the head by Raffy Lopez's backswing while catching, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.Lopez struck out swinging to complete a three-up, three-down inning, but Suzuki was unable to escape the frame unscathed. While Suzuki was able to walk off the field under his own power, the Atlanta Braves likely want to ensure that he isn't experiencing any concussion symptoms as a result of the incident. Suzuki will likely undergo a series of tests Sunday before the Braves determine definitively whether or not he sustained a concussion. Tyler Flowers came on to replace Suzuki and will benefit from more work behind the plate if Suzuki is forced to the disabled list.

      Kurt Suzuki went 2-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Friday's win over the Nationals.His most important work came behind the plate, as he helped guide Mike Foltynewicz to his first career shutout in the 4-0 victory. Suzuki has three multi-hit performances in his last four starts, boosting his slash line on the season to .270/.329/.475, but with Tyler Flowers also hitting well, the two veteran catchers will remain in a timeshare for now.
