Braves promoting top 3B prospect Riley

The Atlanta Braves are promoting top third base prospect Austin Riley on Wednesday, according to multiple reports. Riley, 22, has homered 13 times in his last 18 games at Triple-A Gwinnett, including a grand slam Tuesday at Buffalo. He is batting .299 with 15 homers, 39 RBIs and 32 runs in 37 games.

Outfielder Ender Inciarte left Tuesday's 14-3 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals with tightness in his lower back and is likely headed to a stint on the 10-day injured list. Riley has been blocked at third base in Atlanta by Josh Donaldson, but Inciarte's injury opens a spot for him in left field with Ronald Acuna Jr. shifting to center.

A first-round pick by the Braves in 2015, Riley batted .294 with 19 home runs, 30 doubles and 70 RBIs across three minor league levels in 2018. --Field Level Media
