Suzuki went 2-for-5 with a home run, two runs scored and two RBI in Wednesday's 13-2 rout of the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

It's his fourth homer of the season and first since May 19, and the performance snapped a 1-for-22 slump over his previous six games. Suzuki continues to play second fiddle behind the plate in Atlanta to Tyler Flowers, but he still gets enough playing time to have a little value in NL-only fantasy leagues that require two catchers.

Suzuki is batting sixth and catching Thursday, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Suzuki is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

With the Braves playing a day game Saturday, Suzuki will take a seat while Tyler Flowers takes over behind the dish. Suzuki has been heating up in May, slashing .333/.400/.762 with two home runs and six RBI over his last 21 at-bats. Still, Suzuki and Flowers are seeing a relatively even split as far as playing time is concerned, which hinders both of their values in one-catcher formats.

Suzuki went 2-for-3 with a double, a homer, a walk, three RBI and two runs against the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

This was a rare outburst for Suzuki, who's on the short end of a timeshare behind the plate in Atlanta. That keeps his fantasy value quite limited.

Suzuki went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run, two walks and two runs scored during Thursday's win over the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran backstop hasn't been playing regularly, and Thursday's outburst was his first real sign of offense this season. Through 38 plate appearances, Suzuki sports a .179/.342/.286 slash line.

Suzuki is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Nationals, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

Suzuki had started the last two games with Tyler Flowers (hamstring) unable to catch due to injury, but he'll concede backstop duties to No. 3 option Anthony Recker on Wednesday. With knuckleballer R.A. Dickey on the mound Thursday, Suzuki, Dickey's personal catcher, should be in store for another start in the series finale, but it's expected that Flowers will be back behind the plate at some point over the weekend. Once that materializes, Suzuki probably won't be in line for regular at-bats.

Suzuki went 0-for-1 with two walks and an RBI during Saturday's start against the Pirates, but also committed three passed balls trying to catch R.A. Dickey's knuckleball.

EDGE Analysis

The battery was paired together often during the spring in an effort to acclimate Suzuki to the pitch, but apparently he's got a lot of work to do yet. If he ends up losing his spot as Dickey's regular catcher, it would put a big dent in Suzuki's playing time and fantasy value.

Suzuki is in the Braves' Friday lineup batting eighth, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The backstop continues to make Atlanta's positional picture a frustrating time share. The more promising Tyler Flowers sits again. It'll be interesting to see which pitchers Atlanta wants to pair with Suzuki -- perhaps Friday starter Mike Foltynewicz included -- which could develop a pattern of his usage moving forward.

Suzuki went 2-for-3 with a double, a run scored and an RBI in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

The 33-year-old is now hitting .429/.455/.762 through 21 spring at-bats, with five of his nine hits going for extra bases, while Tyler Flowers is muddling along with a .150/.261/.150 line. There's been no indication yet from Braves manager Brian Snitker that Flowers' starting job is in jeopardy, but if Suzuki keeps raking to close out the spring, he could find himself getting a lot more playing time than expected in April.

Suzuki went 1-for-2 with a walk and a two-run home run in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

The blast was his first of the spring, and Suzuki is now hitting .389/.421/.722 through 18 at-bats. With Tyler Flowers only hitting .176/.300/.176 through his first 17 at-bats of the spring, the Braves may find themselves with some tough decisions to make behind the plate by the time Opening Day rolls around.
