4:41 pm: Braves manager Brian Snitker told reporters that Duvall will have surgery, and Toscano Reports That action would end Duvall’s season. The 2022 outsider will finish with a .213/.276/.401 slash and 12 home hurdles on 315 PA, so between that inconsistent production and his wrist injury, Duvall could face a very modest market as a free agent this winter.
Marcel OzunaAnd the Guillermo HerediaAnd the Orlando Archia Each can be used as the right side of the platoon with Rosario, or the Braves will very likely be looking to add a new player to the mix before the trade deadline.
9:03 am: The brave have put a defensive player Adam Duval In the injured list for 10 days with a sprain of the left wrist. Mike Ford Called from Triple-A to fill Duvall’s roster spot, says Justin Toscano of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (Via Twitter).
Duvall started the year as the Braves quarterback, but the arrival of Michael Harris II Push the veteran into the seat role. Over the past few weeks, he’s been in a fairly straight platoon with Eddie Rosario in the left field. Offensively, he has yet to reach the massive energy output that makes him an effective player. He has 12 home runs across 315 board appearances, but that’s only more than the 401 SLG and .188 ISO, numbers close to average by Duval’s professional standards.
Ford, 30, will occupy a short-term role on the bench as a left-handed bat for the Braves. He’s already appeared in the Majors this season with the Giants and Mariners, as well as the Braves. However, he only collected nine paintings among those three stops.
