Player Notes
A.J. Pierzynski is not in the Braves' starting lineup on Thursday evening against the Reds.

Advice: Christian Bethancourt is catching and batting sixth versus Reds right-hander Mike Leake. Pierzynski has an incredible .422 batting average and 1.131 OPS in 52 plate appearances this season for the Braves, but he'll rest his 38-year-old legs for a day.

A.J. Pierzynski extended his hitting streak to 12 games with a 1-for-4 performance in Wednesday's 13-4 loss to the Nationals.

Advice: Pierzynski got the Braves on the board, knocking in two runs with a single off of Jordan Zimmermann in the first inning. He went 4-for-4 against the Nats on Tuesday and has yet to go hitless in a game this season. The veteran catcher is batting .422/.442/.689 with three home runs and 14 RBI.

Thu, Apr 30 Rotoworld
A.J. Pierzynski's 4-for-4 performance was wasted as the Braves lost to the Nationals on Tuesday.

Advice: Fun fact: Pierzynski has hit safely in all 11 games he's played in for the Braves this season. The catcher has been the unlikely offensive star for the Braves in the season's first month. He brought in a run with a sacrifice fly in the first inning, singled in a run in the fourth, doubled in a run in the sixth, and singled in one more run in the seventh. The 38-year-old Pierzynski owns an eye-popping .439/.458/.732 triple-slash line with three home runs and 12 RBI.
