Inciarte is not on the Braves roster for the NL Wild Card Series against the Reds.
Cristian Pache beat out Inciarte as the team's defensive replacement off the bench. Adam Duvall, Ronald Acuna and Nick Markakis will start in the outfield from left to right in Game 1. Inciarte hit .194/.231/.250 in 36 September at-bats.
Inciarte is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Orioles.
Inciarte began to poach starts from Nick Markakis while the latter was slumping earlier this month, but the former appears to have since faded into a fourth-outfielder role. He'll be on the bench for a fifth straight game while the Braves roll out an outfield of Markakis, Ronald Acuna and Adam Duvall.
Inciarte went 2-for-5 with an RBI and two runs Wednesday in the Braves' 29-9 win over the Marlins.
Batting out of the ninth spot in the order didn't prevent Inciarte from getting in on the Braves' NL-record scoring outburst, though the outfielder posted one of the more modest box-score lines of the night. After appearing to slip into a full-time reserve role earlier in the month, Inciarte picked up his third straight start while the struggling Nick Markakis was benched for the second day in a row. Of the two players, Markakis typically provides more value at the plate, but until he breaks out of his 0-for-24 funk to begin September, the Braves may continue to favor Inciarte and his superior defense in the outfield.
Inciarte went 1-for-2 with a home run -- his first of 2020 -- and a walk in a 7-4 loss to the Phillies on Friday.
Inciarte came off the bench in the fifth inning as a pinch runner for Adam Duvall but stayed in the game afterward and was productive at the plate. He and Austin Riley hit back-to-back homers to open up the seventh inning. Despite the home run, Inciarte is only hitting .208/.301/.278 with six RBI and should remain in a bench role unless another outfielder gets injured.
Inciarte will start in center field and will bat ninth Sunday against the Phillies.
Inciarte appeared headed for a full-time bench role after posting a .521 OPS through the Braves' first 17 games, but Ronald Acuna's (wrist) and Nick Markakis' (COVID-19) subsequent moves to the injured list has reopened playing time for the 29-year-old. Though Inciarte will make his 10th straight start Sunday, he hasn't shown any improvement in his form at the plate, supplying a .491 OPS in the preceding nine contests. Acuna looks poised to come off the IL at some point during the upcoming week and Markakis could also be cleared soon, so despite the recent uptick in playing time, Inciarte doesn't look like a strong pickup in most fantasy leagues.
Inciarte will be on the bench Monday against the Phillies.
Inciarte clearly seems to have fallen out of favor in Atlanta, as he's now started just one of the team's last five games. It's hard to say he's earned regular at-bats, as he's hitting just .171/.293/.229. Ronald Acuna again shifts to center field, with Nick Markakis starting in right.
Inciarte is out of the lineup for Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader in Philadelphia.
Inciarte started in center field and batted ninth in the matinee, going 0-for-3. Ronald Acuna will shift to center field for Game 2 with Adam Duvall and Nick Markakis starting in left and right field, respectively.
Inciarte is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Phillies.
The Braves are going with the same lineup they intended to use Friday before that game got rained out. That means Inciarte is out of the lineup for the third straight day but just the second straight game. Ronald Acuna again starts in center field, with Nick Markakis starting in right.
Inciarte is out of the lineup Friday against the Phillies.
The 29-year-old sits for the second straight game despite the fact the Braves are facing another right-handed starter (Vince Velasquez). The return of Nick Markakis is already making a dent in Inciarte's playing time.
Inciarte isn't starting Thursday's game against the Blue Jays.
Even with right-hander Nate Pearson on the mound for the Blue Jays on Thursday, Inciarte will take a seat after going 3-for-9 with a double, two runs and two stolen bases over the past three games. Ronald Acuna will shift to center field with Nick Markakis making his first start of the season in right field.
Inciarte is not in the lineup Sunday against the Mets.
Inciarte will head to the bench for the third time this season with southpaw David Peterson on the mound for the Mets. Inciarte has struggled to begin the season with a .460 OPS through 28 plate appearances. Ronald Acuna will slide into center field Sunday while Adam Duvall takes over in right.
Inciarte is expected to handle an everyday role when the Braves face right-handed pitching in 2020, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
The Braves lost out on a potential everyday outfield option after Nick Markakis opted out of the 2020 season, but they gained two more with the pickups of Marcell Ozuna and Yasiel Puig. Though Ozuna is the top candidate to serve as the Braves' designated hitter this season, the arrival of the righty-hitting Puig lessens any need the team may have for the lefty-hitting Inciarte versus same-handed pitching. While Inciarte may lose out on some plate appearances and counting stats production as a result, sitting against southpaws should at least prop up his batting average. For his career, Inciarte has hit .289 against righties compared to a .275 mark against lefties.
Inciarte, who was scratched Friday with dehydration, is in the lineup for Saturday's spring game against the Rays, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
It turns out Friday's game was the only one Inciarte will miss as a result of his dehydration. He will occupy both center field and the top spot in the Braves' batting order Saturday.
Inciarte was scratched from the lineup for Friday's game against the Red Sox due to dehydration, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
The issue shouldn't have any serious impact on Inciarte's readiness for the upcoming season. He lines up as the Braves' starting center fielder this season, though Ronald Acuna could slide to the position on occasion to give Nick Markakis starts in right field.
Inciarte (hamstring/quad) is in the lineup for Saturday's spring opener against the Orioles.
Inciarte's 2019 campaign was cut short by a couple leg injuries, but he is good to go for the first exhibition game of the new season. Inciarte will man center field and hit sixth Saturday.
Inciarte (hamstring/quad) could miss the rest of the season, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
Inciarte was already expected to be sidelined until at least the NLCS, but the 28-year-old could now miss the remainder of the season as he deals with a right quad strain in addition to his hamstring injury. Inciarte has been sidelined since Aug. 17 with a right hamstring strain, but Ronald Acuna appears ready to return to game action and should handle the postseason duties in center field.
Inciarte (hamstring) will be shut down at least until the NLCS, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
Inciarte still isn't ready to return to game action, and the Braves have determined that he'll remain sidelined at least until the NLCS, should they make it that far into the postseason. He'll likely be reevaluated at the conclusion of the NLDS.
Inciarte (hamstring) could be cleared to return Friday against the Mets, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
Inciarte ran the bases in Kansas City on Wednesday and is scheduled to take batting practice before being reevaluated. If the outfielder checks out OK in the coming days, he could be back in the starting lineup for Friday's series opener in New York after missing more than a month with a Grade 2 hamstring strain.
Inciarte (hamstring) will run the bases and likely take some at-bats in the instructional league on Wednesday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
Inciarte apparently had a "real good day" rehabbing Tuesday, according to manager Brian Snitker, and he'll ramp things up Wednesday before the Braves decide whether to activate him ahead of Friday's series opener against the Mets.
The Braves could activate Inciarte (hamstring) from the injured list Tuesday but may wait until Friday to do so, according to Mark Bowman of MLB.com.
The Braves don't have much reason to rush Inciarte back into the lineup with a playoff berth in hand, so they will be cautious with him and likely choose to activate him only when they are certain he is 100 percent.
