Description: Braves shortstop Tyler Pastornicky is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mets.
Insight: Pastornicky (.247, 1 HR, 12 RBIs) became fantasy relevant again after Atlanta's starting shortstop Andrelton Simmons (.296, 3 HRs, 15 RBIs) went down with a broken finger. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, Pastornicky hasn't been able to deliver in Simmons' absence. He's 0-13 in his last seven games.

Description: As expected, Tyler Pastornicky has won the Braves starting shortstop job. Atlanta optioned Anderlton Simmons to the minors on Tuesday.
Insight: Pastornicky batted .314 between AA and AAA Gwinnett last season. He doesn't have much power but has stolen 20-plus bases in every minor league season. In NL only leagues he could be a viable backup.
