Braves' Austin Riley making MLB debut Wednesday

Atlanta Braves third baseman Austin Riley is making his major league debut on Wednesday versus right-hander Michael Wacha and the St. Louis Cardinals.

What It Means:

Riley was just called up from Triple-A Gwinnett to help make up for the absence of Ender Inciarte (back). Despite being a third baseman, Riley is making his debut in left field and hitting sixth. The 22-year-old only made four appearances in left field in the minors, all of which came in the past five games. Ronald Acuna is moving to center field.

Riley slashed .299/.377/.681 with a 1.058 OPS in 162 plate appearances at Triple-A this season. He posted 15 homers, 10 doubles, 39 RBI, and 32 runs scored in 37 games.
