    Headshot for Austin Riley

    After flying out to right in his first at-bat in Sunday's 5-4 Grapefruit League loss to the Boston Red Sox, Atlanta Braves third baseman Austin Riley hit a Joe Jacques pitch off the pavilion in right field for his first hit and home run of the spring. It was a solo shot for the 2x All-Star, ending the day 1-2 with one RBI and one run scored. Riley hit 37 long balls last season and with the slugger projected for 38 again in 2024, he's in prime position to rack up RBIs hitting out of the third spot in the potent Braves batting order. The former first-round pick won't help you in the stolen base department but will provide stellar production in every other meaningful category. He's also durable, playing nearly 160 games in three consecutive seasons, which helps affirm his status as the second third baseman off of draft boards and his ranking of 19th overall at RotoBaller, just ahead of his NFBC ADP of 20th overall.
