Adam Duvall News
Atlanta Braves outfielder Adam Duvall is back in action on Saturday after a one-game absence. He will be manning center field and batting seventh as the team faces right-hander Elieser Hernandez and the Miami Marlins. Duvall was forced to miss Friday's game due to a family-related illness. The 33-year-old is still looking for his first home run of the year. He's slashing just .200/.273/.280 over 14 games.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Adam Duvall is not with the team for Friday's game against the Miami Marlins. He is dealing with a family-related illness, according to Braves beat writer Mark Bowman. Bowman reports that there is a chance Duvall will be back in the lineup for Saturday's game. The 33-year-old has yet to go yard in 2022. He's slashing just .200/.273/.280 over 14 games. His 92.6 mph average exit velocity and 31.7 degree average launch angle certainly suggest that his first home run shouldn't be far away.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Adam Duvall is absent from the starting lineup for Friday's game against left-hander Trevor Rogers and the Miami Marlins. Guillermo Heredia will be patrolling center field for the game with Travis Demeritte in right field. Duvall is off to a slow start to the 2022 season. Through 14 games, he's slashing just .200/.273/.280 and he's still in search of his first home run of the year. The 33-year-old launched a career-high 38 home runs last season. We'll see if he can get back on track after Friday's day off.
Duvall may be the most predictable hitter in the game, and I mean that in a good way. Since 2019, he has pounded 64 home runs in 894 plate appearances, a full-season pace of 40+ bombs. That makes Duvall one of the premier power hitters in the league. The problem is that in the fantasy world, you need more than just homers. He is a big-time downer in batting average (career .232 mark, and that came down to .228 in 2021), and that does not figure to ever change. He also does not add anything gin steals, and with a low walk rate he also crushes teams in OBP leagues. A tiny silver lining here is that he is set up to drive in 100+ runs again if he can stay in this Braves lineup every day. He is what he is, a homer and RBI specialist, but your team needs to be ready to absorb the hit in batting average and steals if you are drafting him, even at the cheap draft price (#218 in ADP).
