Braves' Austin Riley: Power surge continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk in Friday's 9-5 loss to Milwaukee.

The third baseman kept crushing Friday, knocking his seventh homer in his last eight games. Riley is riding a nine-game hitting streak, during which he's gone 15-for-35 (.429) with 15 RBI and eight runs scored. The 24-year-old is slashing .289/.371/.526 with career highs in homers (22), RBI (62) and runs scored (53) through 104 games in a breakout season.

Braves' Austin Riley: Keeps delivering
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI on Thursday against the Mets.

Riley took Taijuan Walker yard in the fourth inning to record his 21st home run of the season. He has now homered in three consecutive games and has tallied six long balls in his past seven starts. In that same seven-game span, he's delivered seven runs scored and 13 RBI. For the season, Riley has a .289/.370/.519 line with 60 RBI and 52 runs scored across 416 plate appearances.

Braves' Austin Riley: Clubs homer No. 20
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Mets.

His sixth-inning blast off Tylor Megill gave Riley five homers in the last six games and 20 on the season, but it was the only offense Atlanta could produce on the night. The 24-year-old also has a seven-game hitting streak going, and the surge has boosted his slash line on the season to .287/.368/.513.

Braves' Austin Riley: Goes yard twice Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riles went 2-for-5 with two home runs and six RBI in Tuesday's 12-5 win over the Mets.

The third baseman launched a grand slam off Jerad Eickhoff in the fourth inning before adding a two-run blast off Yennsy Diaz in the sixth. Riley has been red hot since the All-Star break, slashing .372/.442/.791 over his last 12 games with five of his career-high 19 homers on the year.

Braves' Austin Riley: Showcases power in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 3-for-4 with a solo home run, two doubles and a strikeout in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Phillies.

Riley had totaled just one extra-base hit in his six games following the All-Star break, but he's been hot across the last three contests, as he's gone 6-for-13 with two homers, three doubles, three runs and three RBI. The 24-year-old was a bright spot in Atlanta's lineup Sunday since the team generated only one hit outside of the third baseman's production.

Braves' Austin Riley: Socks two-run shot in rout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run, an additional run scored and a walk in Saturday's win over the Phillies.

Riley snapped a six-game homer drought with a two-run shot in the eighth inning when the game was already decided, but the noteworthy thing about the long ball is that he blasted that rocket off shortstop Ronald Torreyes, who pitched the eighth when the game was all but over. It was Riley's 16th long ball of the campaign and he has gone yard three times already this month.

Braves' Austin Riley: Homers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and a walk in Friday's 7-6 loss to the Rays.

Riley got Atlanta on the scoreboard in the fourth after blasting a two-run homer to center. He would then walk and single his next two times up. The 24-year-old has hit safely in seven of his last eight games and will need to continue to pick up some of the slack left behind by Ronald Acuna's season-ending knee injury. For the year, Riley is slashing .279/.362/.478 with 15 homers, 44 RBI, 43 runs scored and 36:91 BB:K over 359 plate appearances.

Braves' Austin Riley: On base three times Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double, a triple, a run scored and an RBI in Friday's 5-0 win over the Marlins.

The streaky 24-year-old is heating up again. Over his last 12 games, Riley is batting .326 (15-for-46) with two homers and nine RBI, pushing his slash line on the year to .280/.364/.473 -- numbers that would be career highs in all three categories.

Braves' Austin Riley: Cranks 14th home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Mets.

Riley took Jacob deGrom deep in the first inning to give Atlanta the lead. He is the only hitter to homer off deGrom in his last seven starts. The 24-year-old is slashing .280/.359/.476 with 14 long balls, 39 RBI and 40 runs in 314 plate appearances. He is batting .333 over his last eight games.

Braves' Austin Riley: Busts out with three hits and RBI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley finished 3-for-6 with three RBI and a run scored Wednesday in Atlanta's 20-2 win over the Mets.

Riley has been in a bit of a power drought of late with only one home run and two doubles over his final 16 games of June, but he at least closed the month on a four-game hitting streak while lifting his average to .279 on the season. The 24-year-old managed a .232 average over his first two years in the majors, so he's been one of the more pleasant surprises in that category in 2021. Riley's .271 expected batting average suggests he shouldn't be in line for major regression as the season unfolds.

Braves' Austin Riley: Snaps skid
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 3-for-3 with a home run, three RBI, a walk and two runs scored in Sunday's 6-4 win over Miami.

The third baseman entered Sunday 0-for-16 over his last four games. He snapped the skid with a two-RBI single in the first inning to get Atlanta on the board. Riley added a solo shot in the third for his 12th homer of the year. The 24-year-old is slashing .299/.384/.517 with 30 RBI and 34 runs scored across 244 plate appearances in a breakout season. He's had some streaky moments, but there's been more good than bad through 62 games.

Braves' Austin Riley: Blasts 11th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 3-for-5 with a solo home run and an RBI double during Tuesday's 9-5 win over the Phillies.

The 24-year-old opened the scoring Tuesday with an RBI double during the first inning, and he also knotted the game at 5-5 with a solo shot in the eighth. Riley has a .352/.419/.703 slash line with eight home runs, eight doubles, 20 RBI and 16 runs in his past 25 games.

Braves' Austin Riley: Sits amid hot streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Ehire Adrianza will step in at third base to replace Riley, who is getting a breather for the first time since April 16. The 24-year-old has overcome a slow start to the season to emerge as the driving force of the Atlanta offense over the past three weeks. Since a four-strikeout game May 15 in Milwaukee, Riley is slashing .355/.400/.774 with seven home runs, 15 RBI and 14 runs over a stretch of 17 contests.

Braves' Austin Riley: Power surge continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Wednesday's 9-5 loss to the Red Sox.

It almost seems a bit disappointing these days when Riley only hits one homer in a game. The 24-year-old has gone yard seven times in the last nine contests while chipping in four doubles as well, giving him a mammoth .394/.417/1.152 slash line over that stretch with 12 RBI. It is worth nothing that also has a 1:14 BB:K over that stretch, a reminder that he may not have solved his contact issues despite this blistering hot streak.

Braves' Austin Riley: Stays hot with two more homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 2-for-4 with two home runs and five RBI in Sunday's 7-1 win over Pittsburgh.

Riley has been on an absolute tear during his eight-game hitting streak, going 14-for-28 (.500) with six homers, 11 RBI and 10 runs scored in that span. The third baseman's surge has seen him raise his OPS from .769 to .963 in the last week. He's added nine homers, 21 RBI and 27 runs scored across 181 plate appearances this season.

Braves' Austin Riley: Goes yard twice Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 3-for-4 with a double, two home runs and three RBI in Friday's 20-1 rout of the Pirates.

The third baseman led the charge as Atlanta racked up seven homers and 14 extra-base hits while putting at least one run on the board in every inning except the third. Riley is hitting .324 (22-for-68) in May and has gone deep four times in the last five games, pushing his slash line on the season to an impressive .310/.410/.503 with seven home runs and 15 RBI through 45 contests.

Braves' Austin Riley: Provides only offense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Monday's 3-1 loss to the Mets.

Riley gave his team a spark in the eighth inning with a solo home run to right, but it would be the only run Atlanta would muster all night. His homer Monday marked his first since April 28 and his fourth on the season through 41 games.

Braves' Austin Riley: Reaches base five times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley went 2-for-2 with three walks and a run scored in Sunday's 10-9 loss to the Brewers.

Riley reached base in all five plate appearances Sunday. He came around to score following a walk in the seventh inning. The 24-year-old raised his slash line to an impressive .291/.405/.394 through 153 plate appearances. It was hit fourth multi-hit performance of the month.

May 13, 2021 09:56 AM
Braves' Austin Riley: Receives rare off day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Blue Jays.

Riley will exit the lineup for the first time since April 16, breaking a streak of 22 consecutive starts. Ehire Adrianza will step in at the hot corner as a replacement for Riley, who will put a four-game hit streak on hold as he heads to the bench.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

It was his third multi-hit game over his last five appearances and second time with four hits during that span. The 24-year-old is slashing .329/.431/.459 with16 runs scored through 102 plate appearances.
