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.

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.

Braves' Austin Riley: Sits Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley is not in Thursday's lineup against the Pirates.

Mark Bowman of MLB.com went out of his way to say that Riley is healthy and is just getting a day off. He is hitting .213 with three home runs and a 15:1 K:BB in 11 games this month. Matt Joyce will start in left field and bat eighth.

June 13, 2019 12:56 PM
Braves' Austin Riley: More late-inning heroics
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 3-for-5 with a triple, a home run, three runs scored and three RBI in Wednesday's 8-7 extra-innings win over the Pirates.

The rookie was one of the heroes in this one for Atlanta -- he tied the game in the bottom of the ninth inning with a solo shot, then scored the winning run in the 11th, coming around on Ozzie Albies' double after being hit by a pitch. Riley is now slashing .292/.336/.623 through his first 26 big-league games with 10 homers and 29 RBI despite a shaky 4:36 BB:K.

Braves' Austin Riley: Smashes ninth home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run and a walk during a 12-5 victory against the Pirates on Tuesday.

The rookie drove an outside breaking pitch right down the right-field line and over the 21-foot wall at PNC Park to give the Braves back the lead in the seventh. It was an impressive display of hitting. Riley has been excellent since he came up in the middle of May, slashing .324/.368/.732. He also has nine home runs, 25 RBI and 15 runs in 71 at-bats.

Braves' Austin Riley: Launches another homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer and two strikeouts in Saturday's 10-5 win over the Tigers.

Riley broke through with the 428-foot blast during the sixth inning to give the Braves a 6-4 lead. The 22-year-old is slashing .349/.388/.762 with eight homers and 22 RBI through his first 16 major-league games, as he continues to stake his claim to an everyday spot in the lineup.

Braves' Austin Riley: Launches grand slam in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 2-for-4 with a grand slam in Wednesday's 14-4 loss to the Nationals.

His seventh-inning shot didn't make much of a difference to the final outcome -- Atlanta was already down 14-0 at the time -- but it did give Riley a stunning seven homers and 20 RBI through his first 14 big-league games, to go along with a .375/.407/.786 slash line. Pitchers will figure out the 22-year-old eventually, but he's quickly establishing himself as a fixture in the team's lineup.

Braves' Austin Riley: Slugs sixth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Nationals.

The rookie took Kyle Barraclough deep in the eighth inning to bring his team to within a single run, but Atlanta couldn't get any closer. Riley is now slashing a remarkable .365/.400/.750 through his first 13 MLB games with six homers and 16 RBI.

Braves' Austin Riley: Goes deep again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 3-for-6 with a home run and three RBI in an extra-innings win against the Giants on Thursday.

Riley smoked a two-run shot to center field off reliever Tony Watson in the eighth inning to tie the game at 4-4. Five innings later, he drove home the winning run with an RBI single. The talented freshman has gotten off to a blazing hot start in the majors, setting a Braves rookie record by hitting his fifth home run in only his ninth game. He also boasts an incredible .389/.421/.833 slash line with 12 runs batted in.

Braves' Austin Riley: Launches fourth home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley finished 1-for-4 with a three-run homer in Wednesday's 9-2 victory over the Giants.

Riley smacked a two-out, three-run shot off reliever Derek Holland in the seventh inning to boost the Braves' lead to 9-2. It was Riley's fourth long ball in eight games since getting called up last week. The 22-year-old has spent time both at third base and in the outfield while slashing at a ridiculous .367/.406/.800. With his hot bat and versatile glove, the Braves should continue to find him a spot in the lineup.

Braves' Austin Riley: Drills third homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer and a walk in Monday's 4-1 victory over the Giants.

The rookie slugger has been stellar in his first week at the MLB level; he's knocked three homers with a .409 average in 22 at-bats. It looks like Riley is going to force the Braves to keep him in the lineup, even when Ender Inciarte (back) returns. He should be owned in all standard leagues at this point.

Braves' Austin Riley: Goes deep again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer in a 4-3 victory over the Brewers on Saturday.

The magical start to Riley's MLB career continued Saturday night. He singled in the second inning and then the Braves took the lead on his homer during the sixth. It's still a small sample size, but Riley is 8-for-15 (.533) with three extra-base hits -- including two home runs -- to begin his MLB career.

Braves' Austin Riley: Three hits in encore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 3-for-4 with a double, two runs scored and an RBI in Thursday's rout of the Cardinals.

After homering in his big-league debut Wednesday, Riley followed up with another impressive performance. The 22-year-old figures to get regular at-bats in left field at least until Ender Inciarte (back) is healthy, but if Riley keeps raking it'll be tough for Atlanta to justify sending him back down to Triple-A.
