Top Guillermo Heredia News

  • Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Avoids arbitration with Atlanta

    Heredia agreed to a one-year, $1 million deal Tuesday, avoiding arbitration, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    Heredia played a minor role on Atlanta's championship team, hitting a modest .220/.311/.354 in 347 plate appearances. Given his ability to handle center field, that line is enough to keep him around in a bench role, especially as his right-handed bat makes him a natural platoon partner for Joc Pederson.

  • Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Back to bench after five starts

    Heredia isn't in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Yankees.

    Heredia started in each of past five games and is typically included in the lineup versus opposing lefty pitchers like the Yankees' Andrew Heaney, but he'll head to the bench while manager Brian Snitker turns to the lefty-hitting Joc Pederson in center field. Heredia didn't help his case for sticking in the starting nine by going 1-for-19 over the past five games.

  • Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Fourth straight start

    Heredia will start in center field and bat eighth Sunday against the Orioles.

    Heredia has gone 0-for-12 over the past three games, but he'll nonetheless pick up his fourth consecutive start in center field as Atlanta wraps up its series in Baltimore. He's mostly been the beneficiary of Atlanta having an extra lineup spot available due to the designated hitter, so expect Heredia's playing time to take a hit when the team begins a a five-game homestand during the upcoming week.

  • Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Launches fifth homer

    Heredia went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 8-6 win over Cincinnati.

    Heredia made his only hit in the contest count, as his two-run blast in the second inning helped Atlanta build an early lead. The long ball snapped a 38-game homerless drought for the outfielder, during which he hit only .197. The extended slump along with the trade-deadline acquisitions of Jorge Soler and Adam Duvall have knocked Heredia out of an everyday role -- Wednesday's start was his first Aug. 4.

  • Braves' Guillermo Heredia: On outs as everyday player

    Heredia is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Nationals.

    Atlanta's recent pickups of Jorge Soler and Adam Duvall to fortify the outfield have resulted in Heredia losing hold of an everyday role. With the new arrivals holding down the corner spots, Joc Pederson has shifted over to center field, leaving no room in the lineup for Heredia, who will sit for the fourth game in a row. Aside from occasionally spelling the lefty-hitting Pederson when Atlanta faces left-handed pitching, Heredia looks set to occupy a bench role for the rest of the season.

  • Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Back in lineup Sunday

    Heredia will start in center field and bat seventh Sunday against the Brewers.

    Heredia saw a streak of 30 consecutive starts come to an end in Saturday's 8-1 win, but he'll re-enter the lineup Sunday with Atlanta holding out the lefty-hitting Joc Pederson against Milwaukee southpaw Brett Anderson. While manager Brian Snitker could still use Heredia regularly against left-handed pitching, the 30-year-old could be the odd man out versus right-handed pitching if Atlanta is willing to play Pederson in center field, as it did Saturday. Trade-deadline pickups Jorge Soler and Adam Duvall will man the corner spots in most games, leaving no room in the lineup for Heredia or Abraham Almonte.

  • Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Reaches base twice

    Heredia went 2-for-3 with a double and a run scored in Game 1 of Monday's doubleheader against the Mets.

    Heredia doubled to lead off the top of the third inning and was driven home by Joc Pederson, who laced a double of his own to right field (106.6 mph exit velocity). Monday's multi-hit performance was Heredia's first since July 18. He's scuffled at the dish over 20 games this month, going 13-for-72 (.181 average) with three RBI and eight runs scored in 20 contests.

  • Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Scores three times in rout

    Heredia went 1-for-3 with two walks and three runs Saturday in Atlanta's 15-3 win over the Phillies.

    The three runs nearly matched Heredia's total (four) from his other 17 games in July combined. After Ender Inciarte was activated from the COVID-19 injured list and designated for assignment Saturday, Heredia remains locked in as Atlanta's everyday center fielder. He'll start his 24th consecutive game in the series finale Sunday, batting seventh for Atlanta.

  • Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Drops in order

    Heredia will start in center field and bat eighth Sunday against the Rays.

    Heredia remains entrenched as Atlanta's top center fielder ahead of Ender Inciarte, but the former's ongoing slide at the plate has resulted in a move down the batting order. After going 2-for-29 over his last eight starts to drop his season average to .247, Heredia will hit eighth for the first time since June 25.

  • Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Swats fourth homer

    Heredia went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in Friday's 3-2 win over the Reds.

    His seventh-inning blast off Vladimir Gutierrez proved to be the winning run. Heredia continues to give Atlanta a reliable presence in the outfield, and the 30-year-old is slashing .269/.359/.478 through 45 games with four homers, 15 RBI and 25 runs.

  • Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Rejoins Friday's lineup

    Heredia (wrist) is starting in center field and batting eighth Friday against the Reds.

    Heredia was available off the bench to past two games while managing inflammation in his right wrist, and he struck out in his lone plate appearance. The 30-year-old is 8-for-23 with a homer, four doubles, five walks, three RBI and six runs in his past 10 games, and he'll look to pick up where he left off now that he's healthy.

  • Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Available off bench again

    Heredia (wrist) isn't starting Thursday against the Reds but is available to pinch hit, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Heredia will be out of the lineup for a third consecutive game due to right wrist inflammation, but he'll be available off the bench once again. It's not yet clear whether he could be ready to return to the lineup Friday.

  • Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Available off bench

    Heredia (wrist) is available as a pinch hitter or defensive replacement Wednesday against the Mets, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Manager Brian Snitker didn't specify whether Heredia is fully recovered, or just feeling good enough to enter the game late if necessary.

  • Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Not in Wednesday's lineup

    Heredia (wrist) isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Mets.

    Heredia was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to right wrist inflammation, and it's not yet clear whether he could be available off the bench Wednesday. Ender Inciarte will step in as the center fielder and bat eighth.

  • Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Scratched from Tuesday's lineup

    Heredia has been scratched from Tuesday's lineup against the Mets due to right wrist inflammation.

    The severity of the wrist issue isn't clear at this point, but Heredia can be considered day-to-day for the time being. Ender Inciarte will start in center field and bat eighth Tuesday.

  • Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Sitting for Game 1 of doubleheader

    Heredia is out of the lineup for the first game of Sunday's doubleheader with the Cardinals.

    Though he'll give way to Ender Inciarte in the front end of the twin bill, Heredia appears to have taken back the reins of primary duties in center field. Heredia started at the position in each of Atlanta's last five games, going 8-for-16 with a home run, four doubles, three walks, six runs and three RBI. He was also hit by two pitches, bringing his on-base percentage up to a monstrous .619 over that five-game stretch.

  • Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Homers, reaches base three times

    Heredia went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a double, a walk and an additional run scored in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Cardinals.

    Heredia took John Gant deep with two outs in the fifth inning for the first run of the game. It was his only long ball this season other than his two-homer game April 18. In addition, he added a leadoff double in the seventh inning and scored. The 30-year-old is slashing .275/.360/.467 with three homers, 14 RBI and 24 runs in 136 plate appearances. He is not a great fantasy option with his limited power and lack of speed.

  • Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Takes back primary CF duties

    Heredia will start in center field and bat eighth Wednesday against the Red Sox.

    Heredia is making his third consecutive start and is in the lineup for the second straight game against a right-handed pitcher, with that usage seemingly indicating that he's retaken control of primary center-field duties from Ender Inciarte. Other than a two-homer, six-RBI game against the Cubs back on April 18, Heredia's box-score lines have typically been empty this season. He has no home runs and seven RBI across his other 36 games.

  • Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Remains on bench

    Heredia remains on the bench for Friday's game against the Marlins.

    Heredia started 10 games in a row over a stretch which began back in late May, but he now finds himself on the bench for the third time in five games. Ender Inciarte will start in center field in his absence.

  • Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Takes seat in series finale

    Heredia is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Phillies.

    Ender Inciarte will get the nod in center field in place of Heredia, who has been serving as Atlanta's main option at the position with starts in 12 of the team's previous 13 games. During that stretch, Heredia hit .163 with two extra-base hits (both doubles), six runs and one RBI.
