            Michael Austin Riley was born April 2, 1997 in Memphis, Tenn. The Braves drafted Riley in the first round in 2015 (41st overall) out of DeSoto Central HS in Southaven, Miss. Riley hit 19 五福彩821ccapp runs in 408 at-bats in 2018, spending most of the season at Double-A or Triple-A. Riley hit 20 五福彩821ccapprs in 484 at-bats in 2017 at high Single-A and Double-A. He hit 20 五福彩821ccapprs (495 ABs) in 2016 and 12 五福彩821ccapprs (217 ABs) in 2015. Riley made his Triple-A debut May 7, 2018 for the Triple-A Gwinnett Stripers. Riley had two fo

            Josh Donaldson on Austin Riley: He has a tremendous ability to hit

            Donaldson, 34, saw plenty of competitors Riley and Johan Camargo a season ago. He saw Riley, also represented by MVP Sports Group, scorch earth upon his MLB promotion but soon sink low enough to he eventually was left off the postseason roster. He saw Camargo’s uneven 2019, when the switch-hitter didn’t take well to a utility role and ultimately had his season cut short by a shin fracture.

            Both players are off to encouraging starts this spring, though the Braves – to this point – have said it’s unrealistic for both to make the initial 26-man roster. A trimmer Camargo is 8-for-26 with one 五福彩821ccappr and six RBIs. He’s appeared looser and more athletic than a season ago.

            Riley is 9-for-27 with two 五福彩821ccapprs and four RBIs, showing less propensity to chase those pesky away pitches. Spring training is a minuscule sample size, of course, but the Braves wanted to see progress. After winning rookie of the month in May, hitting .356 with seven 五福彩821ccapprs, Riley endured a harsh regression to the mean. He finished with a .226/.279/.471 line in 80 games.

            “Austin, I think, has a tremendous amount of ability,” Donaldson said. “He has a tremendous amount of ability to hit. I think what I tried to (explain) to Austin last year was – he came in and was knocking the cover off the ball, we all saw it, we were part of it, it was very exciting to watch – but I know, in this game, there’s only a few people who don’t take that rough patch. It’s how mentally ready you are and secure in what you’re doing with how high those highs get and how low those lows get.” 

            “I was trying to be that guy for Austin last year because I know how important he can be. Sometimes it just takes a little bit of time for that seed to grow. I tried to plant those seeds with Austin last year, and with Camargo, and with a lot of different guys in that organization. Sometimes it takes a little bit of time for that seed to grow. I’m excited to be able to see Austin or Camargo get that opportunity, because both of them I feel are very capable.”

            When the Braves opted not to match Minnesota’s offer to Donaldson (worth $92 million over four years with a fifth-year option), they opened a third-base competition between their two in-house options. They addressed their clean-up void with free-agent outfielder Marcell Ozuna, who was willing to sign a one-year deal.
