Marlins' Matt Joyce: Headed for RF platoon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce is expected to start about three times a week in right field once the regular season finally begins, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Marlins manager Don Mattingly sees the veteran outfielder as the left-handed half of a platoon, but the identity of his platoon partner hadn't yet been determined when Grapefruit League play was suspended. Joyce is coming off a strong 2019 campaign with Atlanta and is a career .252/.354/.452 hitter against RHP, so consistent at-bats could give him some fantasy utility in NL-only formats or leagues with daily moves.

Marlins' Matt Joyce: Lands with Marlins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce agreed to a one-year deal with the Marlins on Sunday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

Joyce will join his seventh organization after hitting .295/.408/.450 with seven home runs, 32 runs scored and 23 RBI in 129 games with the Braves in 2019. The 35-year old will join fellow free agent signee Corey Dickerson in bringing experience to a young Miami outfield. Joyce could enter a platoon situation with Harold Ramirez and Garrett Cooper, both of whom hit right-handed. The veteran recorded a .871 OPS in 212 plate appearances against righty pitchers last season.

Braves' Matt Joyce: Sitting for decisive Game 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce is out of the lineup Wednesday for Game 5 of the Braves' NLDS series with the Cardinals.

Joyce started in the first four games of the series, going 1-for-9 with a walk. Even with the Braves set to face a right-hander (Jack Flaherty) in the winner-take-all game Wednesday, the lefty-hitting Joyce will take a seat as manager Brian Snitker rides the hot bat of Adam Duvall, who has produced three clutch hits and five RBI off the bench so far in the series.

Braves' Matt Joyce: Out against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce will hit the bench Saturday against the Mets.

Joyce sits as usual with a lefty (Steven Matz) on the mound for the opposition. Nick Markakis moves to right field in his absence, with Adam Duvall starting in left.

Braves' Matt Joyce: Sitting vs. lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Royals.

Joyce will head to the bench for Wednesday's series finale with left-hander Mike Montgomery starting for the Royals. In his place, Nick Markakis is starting in right field, with Adam Duvall in left.

Braves' Matt Joyce: Sits against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce will sit Tuesday against the Royals.

Joyce hits the bench with lefty Danny Duffy on the mound for Kansas City. Nick Markakis will start in right field, with Adam Duvall getting the nod in left.

Braves' Matt Joyce: Rides pine Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce is not in Thursday's lineup against the Phillies.

He is hitting .314 with two home runs in 15 games this month. Rafael Ortega will start in right field and bat seventh.

September 15, 2019 03:32 PM
Braves' Matt Joyce: Day ends early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce was ejected in the fifth inning of Sunday's game against the Nationals for arguing balls and strikes, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.

Joyce went hitless in two at-bats before departing, ending a six-start on-base streak. Though the Braves recently added another corner outfielder to the mix in Nick Markakis, there should be room in the lineup for both lefty hitters versus right-handed pitching. Rather than Joyce, Markakis' return from the injured list spells bad news for the likes of Rafael Ortega, Adam Duvall and Austin Riley, all of whom are poised to fill reserve roles in the outfield moving forward.

September 12, 2019 03:24 PM
Braves' Matt Joyce: Sits against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce is not in Thursday's lineup against the Phillies.

He heads to the bench with lefty Drew Smyly starting for the Phillies. Austin Riley will start in right field and bat sixth.

September 10, 2019 04:00 PM
Braves' Matt Joyce: Sits against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce is not in the lineup against lefty Jason Vargas and the Phillies on Tuesday.

Joyce owns an excellent .412/.524/.735 slash line over his last 12 contests, though he's been held out of the lineup against southpaws. Johan Camargo will start in right field in his absence.

Braves' Matt Joyce: Homers in second straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a double Sunday in the Braves' 9-4 loss to the Nationals.

Joyce went yard in both of the final two games of the series and is now slashing an impressive .329/.430/.534 since the beginning of August. The 35-year-old seized hold of a large-side platoon role in right field in mid-August and doesn't look on track to surrender the job anytime soon. He'll pick up his third straight start Monday versus the Phillies and will bat fifth.

September 1, 2019 04:36 PM
Braves' Matt Joyce: Sitting out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox.

Joyce will take a seat after starting in eight of the last nine games and slashing .385/.515/.538 over that stretch. Though he'll be sitting out against a right-hander (Lucas Giolito) in the series finale, Joyce still looks like the Braves' primary option in right field most nights.

August 28, 2019 11:40 PM
Braves' Matt Joyce: Goes yard Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce went 3-for-5 with a home run and two RBI on Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

Joyce led off the second inning by taking Jacob Waguespack deep for his fifth home run of the season. With the effort, he's now managed at least one hit in eight of his last 10 starts. While he is still relegated to the bench against most left-handers, Joyce has quietly produced a .282/.386/.451 line across 166 plate appearances for the season.

Braves' Matt Joyce: Sitting against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce is not in the lineup for Sunday's game versus the Mets, 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.

Joyce started the last three games but will take a seat with lefty Steven Matz on the mound for the Mets. Charlie Culberson will start in right field and bat seventh.

August 21, 2019 04:36 PM
Braves' Matt Joyce: Sitting against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Marlins.

Joyce will take a seat with southpaw Caleb Smith on the hill for Miami, but the 35-year-old tentatively looks on track to fill a large-side platoon role in the Braves outfield following Ender Inciarte's (hamstring) recent move to the 10-day injured list. The 35-year-old started in four of the past five games, going 6-for-14 with a home run, four RBI and three runs over that span.

Braves' Matt Joyce: Swats fourth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Mets.

The fourth-inning shot off Marcus Stroman was Joyce's first long ball since July 3 and only his fourth of the year through 128 plate appearances. Joyce has been a useful pinch-hitting option for Atlanta this season, slashing .255/.359/.427, but he doesn't get enough playing time to have much fantasy value even in deep NL-only formats.

August 7, 2019 08:00 PM
Braves' Matt Joyce: Sitting after back-to-back starts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Twins, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Joyce surprisingly drew the designated hitter assignment over Austin Riley for the first two games of the interleague series but didn't do much with the opportunity, going 1-for-8 with a walk and three strikeouts between the contests. He'll retreat to a bench role Wednesday and should see most of his usage as a pinch hitter over the remainder of the season.

Braves' Matt Joyce: Starts rally with pinch hit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce went 1-for-1 and scored the first run of the game in Sunday's win over the Padres.

Stepping to the plate as a pinch hitter with one out in the eighth inning, Joyce laced a single to right field and then came around to score on Freddie Freeman's game-winning homer. Joyce has been a key bench weapon for Atlanta this season, slashing .300/.404/.500 in 94 plate appearances with 14 of his 24 hits -- and two of his three home runs -- coming as a pinch hitter.

Braves' Matt Joyce: Collects three base knocks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce went 3-for-4 with two doubles, two walks, an RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Marlins.

Joyce plated the game-winning run in the top of the 12th inning on an infield single. He was able to make the most of his opportunities in the series finale, reaching base four times. The 34-year-old has only made six starts this season, but he's batting .310 with two homers and seven RBI in 58 at-bats (48 games).

June 9, 2019 01:08 PM
Braves' Matt Joyce: Makes rare start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce will start in right field and bat eighth Sunday against the Marlins.

It's only the sixth start of the season for Joyce, who has seen light usage off the Atlanta bench since cracking the Opening Day roster. Joyce will merely be a one-day replacement for Nick Markakis, who is resting for just the third time since the beginning of May.
