Inciarte (hamstring) was activated from the 10-day injured list Friday as expected.
Inciarte is healthy just in time, as Cristian Pache hit the injured list with a hamstring injury of his own in a corresponding move. While Inciarte's temporary starting role keeps him interesting in leagues deep enough that every player with regular at-bats has value, he's unlikely to be a particularly interesting option. He does have a 104 wRC+ in a tiny sample of 20 plate appearances this season, but he hit just .225/.314/.343 with six homers and two steals in 111 games over the previous two years.
Inciarte (hamstring) will be reinstated from the 10-day injured list Friday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
Inciarte spent a week with Triple-A Gwinnett on a rehab assignment and will return to action Friday after missing nearly a month with a left hamstring strain. Cristian Pache (hamstring) will be placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move, so Inciarte should take over in center field while Guillermo Heredia (hamstring) is unavailable.
Inciarte (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday.
Inciarte has been out for just shy of three weeks with a strained left hamstring, but it doesn't look as though he's going to miss much more time. He should return to his role as a bench outfielder once he's back with the team.
Inciarte was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left hamstring strain Saturday.
Inciarte was removed from Friday's game after he pulled up with a hamstring injury while running the bases. It's not yet clear exactly how much time Inciarte could miss, but Guillermo Heredia is starting in center field against the Cubs on Saturday and could see increased playing time going forward with Inciarte and Cristian Pache (groin) sidelined.
Inciarte exited Friday's game against the Cubs with a left hamstring injury, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
Inciarte pulled up with the injury while running the bases. It's unclear how much time he's expected to miss. He'd been forced into the starting lineup due to Cristian Pache's groin injury, so Atlanta is already running a bit thin on outfield options. It's not yet clear how much time Inciarte is expected to miss.
Inciarte left Friday's game against the Cubs with an apparent injury, 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.
The nature and severity of Inciarte's injury are not yet clear. He was expected to be mostly a bench player this season but had recently moved into the starting lineup when Cristian Pache (groin) landed on the injured list. Guillermo Heredia is the next man up in center should Inciarte be forced to miss time, though Atlanta could also shift Ronald Acuna to center and Austin Riley to right, opening up starts at third base instead.
Inciarte will start in center field and bat eighth Wednesday against the Marlins.
With Atlanta placing Cristian Pache (groin) on the injured list Wednesday, Inciarte looks poised to receive the majority of the starts in center field in the short term. The lefty-hitting Inciarte could end up filling the strong side of a platoon at the position with the right-handed Guillermo Heredia, who was recalled from Atlanta's alternate site after Pache was placed on the IL.
Inciarte is out of the lineup for Thursday's season opener against the Phillies, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
As expected, Inciarte will serve as Atlanta's fourth outfielder to begin the season while Cristian Pache takes over as the team's everyday center fielder. Inciarte's playing-time outlook took a major hit after MLB opted not to use a universal designated hitter in 2021, as Marcell Ozuna now appears set to play the outfield on a full-time basis.
Inciarte (thumb) will start in center field and will bat seventh in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Rays.
Inciarte will check back into Atlanta's spring lineup for the first time since March 4 after missing time due to a sore thumb. The 30-year-old appears to have lost ground in his battle with Cristian Pache for the top job in center field, but Inciarte should still be in good position to make the Braves' Opening Day roster as a fourth outfielder.
Inciarte hasn't played in a week due to a sore thumb, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
It's not clear when Inciarte is expected to get back on the field. He's already fallen behind Cristian Pache on the depth chart, but he's lined up to serve as Atlanta's fourth outfielder if he's healthy for the start of the regular season.
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.
