Austin Riley is expected to begin the 2021 season at third base, according to Jon Morosi of MLB Network. (Jon Morosi on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Morosi added that the Braves are more focused on adding a left fielder than they are a third baseman so that would give Riley the opportunity to begin the year at the hot corner. He started 45 games at third base last year but got some run in left field and third base as well. Riley isn't known for his defense but Atlanta must feel comfortable enough having him start the year at third.
