  • Sam Hilliard Back In The Starting Lineup Tuesday

    Headshot for Sam Hilliard

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Sam Hilliard is back in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Los Angeles Dodgers and right-hander Bobby Miller. It's his first game action since May 16 but Hilliard has been rather productive at the plate this season. The former Colorado Rockie is hitting .258 with three homers, four stolen bases, and a .789 OPS across 72 plate appearances on the season. His 41.7% K% is a concern but Hilliard's overall production has been 12% above the league average, as per his 112 wRC+. His career 33.6% K% is rather bloated but Hilliard has a solid track record of hitting for power given his .211 isolated power for his career. He'll hit ninth and man center field Tuesday night in Atlanta.

  • Braves Notes: Ozuna, Harris, Hilliard

    Headshot for Michael Harris

    Marcell Ozuna has been one of the worst hitters in Major League Baseball this season, batting just .073/.192/.200 in 63 trips to the plate this year. The Braves, however, don’t appear set to make a change of any kind, writes Justin Toscano of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Toscano spoke with hitting coach Kevin Seitzer, manager Brian…

  • Sam Hilliard Out Of Monday's Starting Lineup

    Headshot for Sam Hilliard

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Sam Hilliard is not in Monday's starting lineup versus the San Diego Padres. With Padres left-hander Ryan Weathers on the mound, the Braves are stacking right-handed bats which leaves the lefty-swinging Hilliard on the bench to start. Acquired in an off-season trade with the Rockies, Hilliard has been excellent for the Braves with a .308 average alongside a homer, two steals, and a .976 OPS across 32 trips to the plate. He does sport a sky-high 43.8% K% but has at least mitigated that figure with an excellent 18.8% BB%. Eli White will take over for Hilliard in center field and hit ninth Monday night in San Diego.

  • Sam Hilliard Picks Up Second Stolen Base Wednesday

    Headshot for Sam Hilliard

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Sam Hilliard went 0-for-2 with a run scored, his second stolen base of the season, a walk and a strikeout in the team's 5-4 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday. Hilliard is seeing regular playing time in Atlanta's outfield with Michael Harris II (back) on the injured list, and he's impressed with a .333 batting average (7-for-21) with three doubles, an RBI, two steals and four runs scored, although he's also struck out 11 times in just 24 plate appearances. The 29-year-old will only be useful to those in deeper leagues for a little while longer with Harris expected to come off the injured list at some point next week.

  • Sam Hilliard Re-Enters Starting Lineup On Tuesday

    Headshot for Sam Hilliard

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Sam Hilliard is back in the starting lineup on Tuesday after coming off the bench on Monday. With Michael Harris II on the 10-day injured list, Hilliard is getting an opportunity to put his decent power/speed combination to work against the visiting Cincinnati Reds and right-hander Luis Cessa. While the lefty-swinging Hilliard benefitted from the league's hitter-friendliest venue at Coors Field in Colorado in parts of four seasons to begin his career he also owns a strong .199 isolated power in parks not named Coors Field. He's also ranked in the 85th percentile or better in Statcast's spring speed metric in each of his four first MLB seasons including 93rd or better in each of his first three. He could be a sneaky DFS streaming option on Tuesday.

  • Sam Hilliard Starting On The Bench

    Headshot for Sam Hilliard

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Sam Hilliard is not in the team's starting lineup for Monday's series opener against the Cincinnati Reds. Hilliard has become the team's starting center fielder with Michael Harris II (back) on the injured list, but he'll take a seat for some rest on Monday. The 29-year-old has gone 5-for-15 (.333) to begin the year with a double in five games played, and he should continue to see plenty of playing time in Atlanta's outfield until Harris is able to return. With Hilliard sitting out on Monday, Eli White will get the nod in center field and will hit ninth against Reds right-hander Graham Ashcraft. White has hit just .185 with nine home runs and 28 RBI in 131 career MLB games to this point.
