Braves' Austin Riley: Begins rehab assignment Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley (knee) will begin a rehab assignment with Low-A Rome on Friday, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

He is reportedly feeling strong and went through normal pregame activities Wednesday. Riley will begin his rehab assignment as the designated hitter, and is on track to rejoin the big club when rosters expand in September.

Braves' Austin Riley: Rehab assignment this weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley (knee) could begin a rehab assignment this weekend, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

He hit on the field for the first time Tuesday. This lines up with the last reported timetable, as Riley will attempt to get back shortly after rosters expand in September. With Ender Inciarte (hamstring) and Nick Markakis (wrist) also on the shelf, there will be at-bats waiting for Riley, assuming he is able to return first.

Braves' Austin Riley: Won't require surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley (knee) will not require surgery and hopes to begin playing in minor-league games in two weeks, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

This is excellent news, as he met with Dr. James Andrews earlier in the week to get a second opinion on his partially torn LCL, which is typically an ominous sign. It sounds like if everything goes smoothly, Riley will join the big-league roster at some point in September.

Braves' Austin Riley: Has partially torn LCL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley has a partially torn LCL and will get a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews on Monday, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Riley will be seen by team doctors in Miami, according to 680 The Fan Atlanta, but is feeling a lot better Thursday and is walking around without any issues. With a surgery decision looming, it is uncertain if the 22-year-old has played his last game of the season. The Braves currently believe Riley won't be forced to go under the knife, according to Burns, though more won't be known until after Monday's visit with Dr. Andrews. He is currently slashing .242/.294/.504 with 45 RBI and 38 runs scored in 255 plate appearances.

Braves' Austin Riley: Visiting Dr. James Andrews
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley (knee) will visit Dr. James Andrews on Monday, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

He was already placed on the injured list with a right knee ligament injury, to a different part of the knee than last year's injury, per Burns. Riley apparently suffered the injury while working out in the weight room earlier this week. A visit with Dr. Andrews typically means surgery is a likelihood, so Riley could have played his last game of the 2019 season.

Braves' Austin Riley: Headed to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley will be placed on the injured list with a knee ligament injury, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Riley apparently suffered the injury while working out in the weight room Tuesday. The severity of the issue is not yet known, leaving the rookie without a timetable for his return. Per David O'Brien of The Athletic, Riley is headed back to Atlanta to be further evaluated.

Braves' Austin Riley: Slugs 17th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Reds.

Making just his second start in the last nine games, Riley went yard for the first time since July 6. The rookie's contact issues (35.1 percent strikeout rate) have caught up with him, but Riley still has 17 homers and a .241/.295/.504 slash line through his first 65 big-league games. If the 22-year-old can learn to generate more consistent offense, he should be able to reclaim a regular spot in Atlanta's starting lineup.

Braves' Austin Riley: Remains on bench Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Phillies.

It's the fourth straight contest on the bench for Riley, who has a .169 average with a 41.5 percent strikeout rate in July. The Braves may simply be giving the 22-year-old some extra time off to help him reset, but if replacements Adam Duvall and Ender Inciarte perform well, he may find it difficult to find playing time.

Braves' Austin Riley: Sitting again Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley is not in the lineup Saturday against the Phillies.

Riley is hitting just .169 with a 41.5 percent strikeout rate this month (18 games), so he'll head to the bench for the third time in as many games as Ender Inciarte picks up another start in the outfield in his stead.

July 26, 2019 04:24 PM
Braves' Austin Riley: Out of Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley is not in the lineup for Friday's game at Philadelphia.

Riley is on the bench for the second straight contest and for the fourth time in the last seven games. The Braves undoubtedly want to get the young slugger back on track -- he's hitting .172 with a 41.3 percent strikeout rate in July -- but Ender Inciate will start again in the outfield Friday.

Braves' Austin Riley: Splitting time with Inciarte
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Royals.

Since Ender Inciarte was activated from the injured list last week, Riley has sat three of six games. It's a tricky situation for the Braves, because they would like to allow their young slugger to work through some adjustments at the plate (hitting .172 with a 41.3 percent strikeout rate in July), but they are also trying to secure a top seed in the NL playoffs. Inciarte is starting in center field, hitting eighth.

Braves' Austin Riley: Absent from Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley is not in the lineup Sunday against the Nationals.

Riley has now been relegated to the bench in two of the team's last four games thanks to the return of Ender Inciarte. However, Riley hasn't helped his cause by hitting just .170/.224/.302 across 58 plate appearances in July. Inciarte is starting in Riley's place, manning center field and batting eighth.

Braves' Austin Riley: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley is not starting Thursday against the Nationals.

Riley is slashing just .159/.224/.295 through 12 games this month, so he'll retreat to the bench for Thursday's series opener as Ender Inciarte (back) -- who was reinstated from the injured list Thursday -- picks up a start in the outfield in his stead. Even with Inciarte back in the fold, the 22-year-old Riley still figures to see the majority of playing time in left field, with Inciarte filling in as the team's' fourth outfielder, per Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Braves' Austin Riley: Bat going cold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Wednesday's loss to the Brewers.

The rookie is now hitting .159 (7-for-44) through 12 games in July with a rough 4:19 BB:K, although he's still supplied some pop with two homers and six RBI. Riley is picking a bad time to slump with Ender Inciarte (back) about to come off the IL, but it remains to be seen how Atlanta will handle the upcoming competition for at-bats in the outfield.

Braves' Austin Riley: Breaks game open with homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Wednesday's 9-2 win over the Phillies.

Riley's three-run blast during the sixth inning chased Phillies starter Nick Pivetta and helped the Braves take control with a four-run cushion. The 22-year-old is slashing .266/.317/.578 with 15 home runs through his first 45 major-league games and has shown no signs of slowing down.

Braves' Austin Riley: Hits tie-breaking homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 2-for-4 with a tie-breaking solo homer in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Mets.

Riley followed a homer by Nick Markakis by going deep on the next pitch from Seth Lugo in the seventh inning to give the Braves a 5-4 lead. It was the 22-year-old's 14th homer in just 161 at-bats, and the strong power he has displayed has produced a .280/.333/.596 slash line this year.

June 29, 2019 12:52 AM
Braves' Austin Riley: Mashes 13th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and a second run scored in Friday's 6-2 win over the Mets.

The rookie had been stuck in a 1-for-15 mini-slump with seven strikeouts before he took Jacob deGrom deep in the second inning. Riley is now slashing .274/.329/.580 through his first 41 big-league games with 13 homers and 36 RBI.

June 26, 2019 03:52 PM
Braves' Austin Riley: Not in lineup Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Cubs.

Riley has started the past 11 games, slashing .233/.313/.465 with two home runs and a 37.5 percent strikeout rate during that stretch. Johan Camargo is starting in left field and hitting eighth in his stead Wednesday.

June 22, 2019 03:20 PM
Braves' Austin Riley: Smashes 12th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a 4-3 loss against the Nationals on Friday.

The rookie hit his homer in the second to give the Braves an early 2-0 lead, but Riley then struck out in two of his final three at-bats. He is batting .291 with a .619 slugging percentage, 12 home runs, 34 RBI and 29 runs in 134 at-bats this season.

June 16, 2019 06:28 AM
Braves' Austin Riley: Cranks 11th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 6-5 loss to the Phillies.

After a slow patch to begin June, Riley is heating up again, hitting .368 (7-for-19) over his last five games with a double, a triple, two homers, five RBI and six runs. The rookie now has 26 homers on the season -- 15 for Triple-A Gwinnett prior to his promotion, and 11 in 29 games for Atlanta.
