Adam Duvall News
Atlanta Braves outfielder Adam Duvall (wrist) will undergo surgery to repair a torn tendon sheath in his left wrist. Due to the lengthy recovery period following the procedure, he will be out for the remainder of the 2022 season. Duvall sustained the injury when his wrist was jammed into the outfield wall during this Saturday's game. Eddie Rosario and Guillermo Heredia should both see their playing time increase going forward, but we could also see the Braves make a move prior to the trade deadline to bulk up their outfield.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Adam Duvall went deep for the 11th time this season Tuesday, blasting a two-run shot off New York Mets relief pitcher Seth Lugo to give Atlanta a 4-1 lead that would hold as the final score. Nine of Duvall's home runs have come in his last 30 games, a span during which he's slugged .598 in 97 at-bats. He may be a drag in batting average, with a .207 mark on the year, but he's capable of carrying a fantasy team power-wise when he goes on one of his more torrid stretches.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Adam Duvall has been placed on the paternity leave list as of Friday. The 33-year-old is expected to miss the weekend series, but should return early next week. This is actually good timing since Duvall has been dealing with a hand issue. This time off gives him an opportunity to heal and get back to 100 percent healthy. Duvall isn't much of an option in most fantasy formats. He could be useful in deep formats because of his power, but he'll never hit for a high average. Mike Ford has been recalled from the minors to take over the active spot on the roster. The 30-year-old doesn't offer much with the bat, so fantasy managers can ignore him.
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).
