Braves' Austin Riley: Rocking for Stripers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 4-for-5 with a double, two solo home runs and a third run scored for Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday.

His second blast actually cleared the left-field scoreboard at Coolray Stadium, traveling an estimated 492 feet. Riley is on fire right now, going yard five times in the last six games while slashing a dizzying .542/.577/1.333. He's blocked from a promotion as long as Josh Donaldson is healthy, but the 22-year-old is making a strong case that he's just about ready to face big-league pitching.

Braves' Austin Riley: Big power display for Gwinnett
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 3-for-5 with a double, two home runs, three RBI and three runs scored for Triple-A Gwinnett on Saturday.

After striking out four times in his first two games of the season, Riley put on a show against Norfolk. The Braves' No. 1 fantasy prospect could struggle to hit for a plus batting average in the majors if he can't keep the K's under control, but he has legit middle of the order power -- his 12 homers in 75 games last year in his first exposure to Triple-A pitching was just scratching the surface of his potential. Riley will continue working on his game in the minors while Josh Donaldson occupies third base in Atlanta, but if the veteran breaks down once again, the 22-year-old could make his big-league debut later this season.

Braves' Austin Riley: Slugs first spring homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 2-for-2 with a double, a solo home run and a second run scored in Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Nationals.

The Braves' No. 1 fantasy prospect connected on his first spring homer in the fifth inning off Anibal Sanchez. Riley hasn't wowed anyone at the plate in camp, slashing .267/.327/.378 with a 3:12 BB:K in 18 games, but the organization's willingness to try him out in an outfield corner suggests they expect him to force their hand on a big-league promotion sooner rather than later. The 21-year-old's best path to a 2019 debut might come via a Josh Donaldson injury, however.

Braves' Austin Riley: Gets nod in LF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley is starting in left field and hitting sixth Wednesday against the Nationals.

This is Riley's first spring start in the outfield. He previously saw time this spring at third base and first base, and the Braves will continue to expand his positional utility. Riley will open the year at Triple-A, but is positioned to potentially serve as an injury replacement at all four corner spots.

Braves' Austin Riley: Seeing work at first base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley is starting at first base and batting cleanup in Sunday's spring game against the Marlins, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

There was some indication previously that the Braves may test Riley in the outfield in spring training, but it instead appears as though they would prefer to give him a look at first base. The signing of Josh Donaldson this offseason pushed Riley from the organization's immediate plans at third base, and any additional versatility would only further his chances of cracking the majors in the near future.
