Braves Giving Prospect Austin Riley Time In Outfield 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Mon May 13, 2019 12:17 pm

The Atlanta Braves have been experimenting with top prospect Austin Riley in the outfield.

Riley may be baseball\'s best third base prospect. He\'s been playing as a left fielder at Triple-A Gwinnett.

He\'s been receiving two starts per week in the outfield.

The presence of Josh Donaldson may leave Riley without a clear path to Major League playing time this season, but the ability to play in the outfield could get him some at-bats.
