    Eric Karabell

  8. What's next for Atlanta Braves rotation?

    Eric Karabell

    On the surface, it appears that the Atlanta Braves have been blessed with much luck concerning the health of their starting pitchers this season. But that the luck is changing. They entered Thursday having used a mere six starting pitchers all season...

  9. Second-half rankings reactions: Hitters

  13. Where will Beachy fit in Braves rotation?

    Eric Karabell

    The way Atlanta Braves right-hander Brandon Beachy pitched last season, and knowing that pitchers can return from Tommy John surgery at a similar or occasionally better level than before, he was probably one of my top long-term DL stash options for t...

  14. Don't dismiss Adam Dunn, Dan Uggla

    Eric Karabell

    Relying on batting average drains such as Chicago White Sox first baseman Adam Dunn and Atlanta Braves second baseman Dan Uggla can be painful for any fantasy owner, but when they're hitting for power -- like they were Monday night -- they can still ...
