The ATL Thread™ 5/15: Austin Riley Called Up Edition
quote:

Austin Riley will now have a chance to extend his impressive power surge at the Major League level.

Multiple sources confirmed the Braves' plan to promote Riley from Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday. The highly regarded prospect will take the roster spot previously filled by Ender Inciarte, who is expected to be placed on the injured list after leaving Tuesday night’s 14-3 loss to the Cardinals with lower back tightness. The Braves have not confirmed the moves.

Riley has homered 13 times in his past 70 at-bats and 10 times in his first 51 May at-bats.

Thank you for this thread. Not because I care for the Braves, but so I could be first to get Riley in my fantasy league.

This team needs a shot in the arm right now

Excited to see him get a shot and Lord knows Ender needed to get out of the lineup. The problem for this team is pitching or lack thereof though. What has happened to Folty?

My gut feeling is that his elbow is still bothering him and that's why his slider doesn't have the same bite. He needs a long DL stint.

I’ve got a good friend who is pretty sure any value we get out of Folty going forward will be as a closer.

That actually would be a damn good role for him

Just need another young arm to step up alongside Fried and Soroka.

I think most teams actually considered him more a pitching prospect than a hitter prior to the draft. The Braves were one of the few looking at him strictly as a hitter.

Folty doesn’t have the mental makeup to close games.

I’m no expert but a 95 mph slider that doesn’t slide is not going to get many saves.

They better use Stone Cold's theme for his walkup music.

Riley is a big boy. Jesus. Looks like an outside linebacker
