      Braves' Charlie Culberson: Opportunities remain scarce

      Charlie Culberson remains out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Pirates, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.Culberson hasn't drawn a start since May 23 and has only picked up four at-bats in the Atlanta Braves' subsequent 10 games. Unless Atlanta loses one of its everyday players to an injury, Culberson will continue to see limited work off the bench.

      Braves' Charlie Culberson: Back-to-back starts

      Charlie Culberson will start in left field and hit eighth Thursday against the Padres.After not starting in any of the Atlanta Braves' first 29 games, Culberson has now entered the lineup on back-to-back days. Culberson filled in for Ronald Acuna on Wednesday and will replace Ender Inciarte in the series finale in what amounted to rest days for both everyday outfielders. Expect Culberson to resume his usual reserve duties in this weekend's series in Miami.

      Braves' Charlie Culberson: Smacks pinch-hit homer

      Charlie Culberson hit a two-run pinch-hit home run off Justin Wilson in the sixth inning of Sunday's win over the Mets.The veteran utility player has been used exclusively as a pinch hitter so far but has produced when his name has been called, going 3-for-7 with two homers and five RBI. As long as Atlanta's starting lineup stays healthy and Johan Camargo is around as the first option off the bench, Culberson's playing time will be very limited no matter how well he hits.

      Braves' Charlie Culberson: Having rough spring

      Charlie Culberson went 1-for-3 in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Red Sox.The utility player has had a sluggish spring, going 5-for-30 with a 2:8 BB:K through 12 games. Culberson became a fan favorite in Atlanta last year after hitting .270 with a career-high 12 homers, but his .678 career OPS suggests he could have trouble repeating the performance.

      Braves' Charlie Culberson: Agrees to deal with Atlanta

      Charlie Culberson and the Atlanta Braves avoided arbitration Friday with a one-year, $1.395 deal, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.Culberson was an effective utility man in his first year in Atlanta, playing seven positions while receiving a career-high 322 plate appearances and finishing with his first above-average batting line (.270/.326/.466, good for a 108 wRC+). He'll likely be reprising that role again this season.

      Braves' Charlie Culberson: Back in reserve role

      Charlie Culberson is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Cardinals.Culberson saw his five-game starting streak come to an end in Monday's series opener, when Johan Camargo was cleared to return from a groin injury. With Camargo emerging as one of the Atlanta Braves' top hitters in the second half, he should continue to stick in the lineup on a regular basis, closing Culberson's path to an everyday role over the final week and a half of the regular season.

      Braves' Charlie Culberson: Smacks two-run homer in win

      Charlie Culberson went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Giants.Culberson entered the game in the top of the third inning after Johan Camargo exited with a groin injury, and he'd go on to deliver his 11th homer of the season. If Camargo is forced to miss any amount of time, Culberson -- who's slashing .280/.327/.494 -- will likely be the top option to take over third in his stead, though the initial word is Camargo may not be out long.
