“I think once he starts running around and maybe throwing a little bit we’ll get a better idea. Until he does that, I don’t think we know definitively what the timeline is.”
When Inciarte went on the injured list, Ronald Acuna moved from left field to center, and rookie Austin Riley took over in left. In his first 10 major-league games entering Saturday night, Riley had a .350 batting average (14-for-40) with a 1.131 OPS, five home runs and 12 RBIs. Whatever roster move the Braves make when Inciarte is ready to play, Riley’s bat obviously seems entrenched in the lineup.
