  • Yankees' Ender Inciarte: Back in action at Triple-A

    Inciarte (illness) was reinstated from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre's 7-day injured list Saturday and returned to the lineup Sunday, going 1-for-3 with a run and a stolen base in the club's 3-1 win over Syracuse.

    Inciarte was sidelined for approximately two weeks due to COVID-19-related protocols after presumably testing positive for the virus. The veteran outfielder has logged 53 plate appearances through 15 games with the Triple-A club, slashing .298/.377/.447 with two home runs and three stolen bases.

  • Yankees' Ender Inciarte: Lands on COVID-19 IL

    Inciarte was placed on the COVID-19 injured list for an unspecified reason Saturday, Conor Foley of The Scranton Times-Tribune reports.

    It's not yet clear whether Inciarte has tested positive for COVID-19 or when he'll be able to rejoin the team. After missing out on an Opening Day roster spot, the 31-year-old is slashing .295/.380/.455 with two homers, a double, nine RBI, four runs and two stolen bases at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this year.

  • Yankees' Ender Inciarte: Loses out on roster bid

    The Yankees reassigned Inciarte to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Monday.

    With Inciarte out of the picture, Tim Locastro looks to be on track to break camp with the Yankees as their fourth outfielder. Despite possessing a longer track record than Locastro at the big-league level, Inciarte's declining production at the plate in recent years might not be enough to make up for the above-average defense and baserunning he typically brings to the table. After submitting a .244 wOBA in 220 plate appearances over his final two seasons in Atlanta, Inciarte didn't show much improvement this spring, going 4-for-25 at the dish during Grapefruit League play.

  • Yankees' Ender Inciarte: Signs minor-league contract

    Inciarte signed a minor-league contract with the Yankees on Thursday, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

    Inciarte appeared in 52 major-league games with Atlanta last year and slashed .215/.276/.316 with two homers, 11 runs, 10 RBI and a stolen base. However, the 31-year-old was released in late July before landing a minor-league contract with the Reds. Inciarte will likely compete for a major-league roster spot with the Yankees during spring training in 2022.

  • Reds' Ender Inciarte: Lands minor-league deal

    Inciarte signed a minor-league contract with the Reds on Thursday.

    Inciarte was released by Atlanta on July 29 after he hit .215 across 52 big-league games to begin the season, and he'll now report to Triple-A Louisville. It isn't encouraging that the 29-year-old was unable to maintain a spot on Atlanta's active roster that had already lost Ronald Acuna (knee) and Marcell Ozuna (not injury related), but he's a strong candidate to join the Reds' major-league roster if injuries occur in their outfield.

  • Ender Inciarte: Let go by Atlanta

    Inciarte was released by Atlanta on Thursday.

    Inciarte was designated for assignment Saturday, and he'll now become a free agent after he went unclaimed on waivers. The 30-year-old slashed .215/.276/.316 with two homers, 11 runs, 10 RBI and a stolen base in 52 games this season.

  • Braves' Ender Inciarte: Designated for assignment

    Inciarte was activated from the COVID-19 injured list Saturday and designated for assignment.

    Inciarte is in the final year of a five-year, $30.5 million contract, but Atlanta will have to pay him the remainder of this year's $8 million salary whether or not he's part of the roster. The team evidently decided they'd rather pay him to not play than keep him around. It's hard to argue with that decision considering that his .592 OPS in limited action this season isn't much better than his .512 mark from last year, though it's notable that the 30-year-old isn't deemed worthy of a roster spot even on a squad that's already lost fellow outfielders Ronald Acuna (knee) and Marcell Ozuna (not injury related). That seemingly doesn't bode well for Inciarte's ability to find a spot on an active roster elsewhere.

  • Braves' Ender Inciarte: On COVID-19 IL

    Atlanta confirmed that Inciarte was placed on the injured list Monday due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols.

    Inciarte has been testing negative for the virus, so his deactivation may have been the result of him being a close contact of an infected person or persons. Assuming Inciarte remains negative in his subsequent testing, he could rejoin Atlanta before the end of the week.

  • Braves' Ender Inciarte: Moves to IL

    Atlanta placed Inciarte on the injured list Monday.

    Atlanta didn't provide an injury designation for Inciarte, so his deactivation could be related to COVID-19 protocols. Regardless, Inciarte's absence shouldn't prove costly, given that Atlanta has Abraham Almonte and Ehire Adrianza to provide depth in the outfield behind regular starters Joc Pederson, Guillermo Heredia and Orlando Arcia. Inciarte hasn't started since June 26 and has only nine plate appearances off the bench since that time.

  • Braves' Ender Inciarte: Stuck behind Heredia on depth chart

    Inciarte remains out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays.

    Even though top center fielder Guillermo Heredia has gone 2-for-29 over his past eight games, Atlanta doesn't appear to be considering dropping him from the lineup in favor of Inciarte. The 30-year-old still brings value with his glove, but Inciarte's deplorable .592 OPS and career-worst 24.7 percent strikeout rate on the season give Atlanta little reason to open up playing time for him. He hasn't started a game since June 26.

  • Braves' Ender Inciarte: Pops second homer

    Inciarte went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 7-3 loss to the Mets.

    The blast was his second homer of the year, with the first coming June 13. Inciarte continues to see sporadic playing time despite Atlanta's injuries in the outfield, and his .207/.250/.414 slash line through 32 plate appearances in June isn't making a compelling case for a larger role.

  • Braves' Ender Inciarte: Still not starting

    Inciarte isn't starting Wednesday's game against Boston.

    Inciarte has split time with Guillermo Heredia in center field recently, and he'll remain out of the lineup for a third straight game. Heredia will bat eighth in Wednesday's series finale.

  • Braves' Ender Inciarte: Out of lineup again Tuesday

    Inciarte is not in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Red Sox.

    Inciarte and Guillermo Heredia have been splitting time in center field in recent days, with the former starting the previous three games before Sunday and the latter set to start his second straight Tuesday. It appears Inciarte is the preferred option against right-handers, with Heredia getting the bulk of opportunities against southpaws, though it hasn't been a strict platoon to this point.

  • Braves' Ender Inciarte: Hits homer off bench

    Inciarte went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Sunday's 6-4 win over Miami.

    It was supposed to be a day off for the outfielder, but Ronald Acuna's exit with pectoral tightness forced Inciarte into the game. The 30-year-old delivered some insurance with a solo shot in the sixth inning, his first long ball of the season. He's slashing only .235/.286/.314 with six RBI, seven runs scored and a stolen base across 58 plate appearances this year. The severity of Acuna's injury is unknown. If the star outfielder misses time, Inciarate would be a near lock to play center field while Guillermo Heredia shifts over to right.

  • Braves' Ender Inciarte: Cedes spot to Heredia on Sunday

    Inciarte is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins.

    Though Guillermo Heredia will replace him in center field Sunday, Inciarte appears to have inched ahead of him on the depth chart for the time being. Inciarte started each of the past three games, going 1-for-9 with three strikeouts.

  • Braves' Ender Inciarte: Moving into starting role

    Inciarte will start his third straight game Saturday against the Marlins, batting eighth and playing center field.

    Inciarte had seemed to be behind Guillermo Heredia on the depth chart in center, but he now appears to be the primary option. A platoon between the pair could be a natural setup, with the left-handed Inciarte getting the majority of the opportunities ahead of the right-handed Heredia. Inciarte isn't the most exciting fantasy option even with a regular role, however, as he's hitting just .234/.288/.255 on the year.

  • Braves' Ender Inciarte: Getting limited opportunities

    Inciarte will start in center field and bat eighth Sunday against the Dodgers.

    Inciarte will be entering the lineup for the first time since May 26. Even with Marcell Ozuna (finger) on the injured list, Inciarte appears to rank no higher than fifth in the pecking order for playing time in the Atlanta outfield. All of Ronald Acuna, Guillermo Heredia, Ehire Adrianza and Abraham Almonte appear to be ahead of Inciarte on the depth chart.

  • Braves' Ender Inciarte: Out of Sunday's lineup

    Inciarte is not in the lineup Sunday against the Pirates.

    Inciarte will head to the bench for the series finale with Guillermo Heredia receiving the start in center field. The pair should continue splitting reps in center while Cristian Pache (hamstring) is sidelined.

  • Braves' Ender Inciarte: Reinstated from paternity list

    Inciarte was reinstated from the paternity list Thursday.

    Inciarte was away from the team for three days but should be available for Thursday's game against the Pirates. Guillermo Heredia is starting in center field and batting eighth, but Inciarte could be available off the bench.
