  • Braves' Jarred Kelenic: On bench against southpaw

    Kelenic is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Rangers.

    Kelenic is 2-for-13 with six strikeouts over his past four games and will sit Friday since lefty Andrew Heaney is starting for Texas. Adam Duvall will receive another start in left field as the pair of outfielders continue to platoon the position.

  • Braves' Jarred Kelenic: Heads to bench vs. lefty

    Kelenic is out of the lineup for Sunday's game versus the Marlins.

    Kelenic will hit the bench for the third time in four games, with all three absences coming while Atlanta has faced left-handed starting pitchers. The 24-year-old looks to be in a strict platoon in left field with the right-handed-hitting Adam Duvall, who gets the starting nod Sunday.

  • Braves' Jarred Kelenic: Takes seat versus lefty

    Kelenic is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Mets.

    The lefty-hitting Kelenic will give way to the righty-hitting Adam Duvall while the Mets bring southpaw Jose Quintana to the hill for the series finale. Kelenic has been a strict strong-side platoon player thus far in his first season in Atlanta, logging just one plate appearance versus a lefty while slashing .480/.536/.600 in 28 plate appearances versus righties.

  • Braves' Jarred Kelenic: On bench versus lefty

    Kelenic is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Diamondbacks.

    Southpaw Tommy Henry is pitching Friday for Arizona, so Kelenic will unsurprisingly head to the bench. Adam Duvall will start in left field and bat sixth.

  • Braves' Jarred Kelenic: Swing adjustments paying off

    Kelenic is 6-for-11 (.545) with a double, two RBI, two runs scored and a 2:2 BB:K to begin the season.

    The 24-year-old has yet to get a plate appearance against a left-handed pitcher while platooning with Adam Duvall in left field for Atlanta, but Kelenic has been ripping the cover off the ball against righties. Hitting coach Kevin Seitzer credited the hot start to mechanical adjustments Kelenic made with his swing in training camp, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports. "We quieted down all the hand movement," Seitzer said this week. "Then the last adjustment was him saying, 'I just want to bang the leg kick.' He goes, 'I'm trying to do too much, swinging too hard, my timing is not good.' He goes, 'I've done this before where I've just kind of spread out and gone just a little no-stride.' Well, his spread-out, no-stride has equated into a real small leg kick, and it's helped his position on his takes." Kelenic's simpler swing has allowed him to see the ball better as well as get to it quicker when he pulls the trigger -- while the sample size is tiny, his 21.2 percent whiff rate so far in 2024 would be a career low, even though his 52.4 percent swing rate would be a career high. While his fantasy ceiling is limited by his platoon role and the fact that he's batting ninth in a stacked Atlanta lineup, the sixth overall pick in the 2018 Draft could still be headed for a long-awaited breakout.

  • Braves' Jarred Kelenic: Sits down against lefty

    Kelenic isn't in Atlanta's lineup for Tuesday's game against the White Sox, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Left-handed starter Garrett Crochet will toe the slab for the White Sox on Tuesday, meaning the left-handed bat of Kelenic will retreat to the dugout. Adam Duvall will take over in left field and bat sixth.
