CF,LF - ATL
Braves top prospect OF Cristian Pache went 3-for-5 with two homers in Thursday's game for Triple-A Gwinnett.
Pache is considered a better "real life" prospect since his 80-grade defense makes up so much of his value as a player. However, he's still worth rostering in dynasty leagues given his upside and likely everyday role. The best thing for him might be to have some offensive success in the minors for a bit.
Christian Pache (hamstring) was activated from the 10-day injured list Wednesday and was subsequently optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett.
Even with Marcell Ozuna out indefinitely, the Braves don't feel the need to have Pache up with the big club. Before landing on the IL, Pache posted a .358 OPS in 68 plate appearances. He'll likely get the call to the majors again after demonstrating success at the plate in the minors.
Braves OF Christian Pache left Thursday's game early with hamstring tightness and is now out for at least 10 days.
OF Ender Inciarte has been recalled in a corresponding move and should see playing time in both CF and RF with fellow Braves OF Ronald Acuna Jr. (ankle) being day-to-day. Gadget player Ehire Adrianza should also see time in the OF if Acuna is unable to play Friday.
Braves OF Christian Pache was taken out of the game after experiencing tightness in his right hamstring while running out a ground ball in the 2nd inning.
3B Austin Riley, who had a scheduled day off, came in for Pache with utility guy Ehire Adrianza moving to outfield to take Pache's spot defensively. Pache is currently hitting .111 with an OPS at .358 with one home run.
Cristian Pache went 1-for-3 with a double in Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays.
Pache has really struggled at the plate so it's newsy when he hits a double. The Braves are weak at the center field position and they really need to address that issue. Currently, Ender Inciarte is continuing his rehab at Triple-A and might be called up. Guillermo Heredia, another option, remains on the IL.
