Cristian Pache News
The Atlanta Braves called up outfielder Cristian Pache from Triple-A on Tuesday and added him to their NLDS roster. The move was made after the team placed outfielder Jorge Soler on the COVID-19 injured list. Soler will be out for a minimum of five days after testing positive for COVID-19. Pache is likely to serve as a reserve outfielder while Soler is out. Fellow outfielder Guillermo Heredia is earning his first start of the NLDS for Tuesday's Game 4. The 22-year-old Pache spent the bulk of the year at Triple-A, slashing .265/.330/.414 with 11 home runs, nine stolen bases, 44 RBI and 50 runs over 89 games.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Cristian Pache (hamstring) will be on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Gwinnett. Pache landed on the injured list a few weeks ago due to a left hamstring strain, and he also dealt with a groin injury earlier in the year. The 22-year-old has struggled during the 2021 campaign, batting just .111 through 63 at-bats. However, fantasy managers can partially attribute his lack of productivity due to health issues, so he should remain on fantasy rosters for those with room to spare.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Cristian Pache (hamstring) hit the injured list on Thursday and was replaced by veteran outfielder Ender Inciarte, who was activated after recovering from his own hamstring injury. It's been a rough season for Pache who already suffered through a groin injury earlier in the season. When healthy enough to play, he hit just .111 with an ugly BB-K of 2-25 in 22 games. The rookie is known for his plus defense in center field but has yet to show that he's advanced enough at the plate to produce even average numbers against big league pitchers. When healthy again, he'll likely produce modest fantasy value for the 2021 season.
The young Braves outfielder is a plus-plus centerfielder who has star potential simply due to his glove but that's a skill set that has little-to-no value in fantasy baseball. Offensively, his numbers have been nothing to write home. However, he's shown signs that he could potentially develop into a strong hitter when you take into consideration that he's been one of the youngest hitters in each of the leagues he's played in. Pache's 2019 season was especially promising when he posted a 134 wRC+ in Double-A at the age of 20. Another thing to like about his trajectory is the power development a skill that commonly improves with age (physical maturity). After not hitting a home run in his first two pro seasons, Pache's home run totals have since increased each year and reached double-digits in 2019. With some continued physical maturity and tweaks to beef up his launch angle, there are 20 to 25 home runs in that bat. He hasn't run much since stealing 32 bases in 2017 but Pache still possesses good speed and there is the potential for double-digit steals down the road if a base-running coach can help him polish that skill. With an ADP of 365, fantasy managers realize the Braves prospect is still a work-in-progress despite a solid shot at an everyday outfield role in 2021. Pache is a surefire target in dynasty leagues but he's also an intriguing late-round sleeper in redraft leagues.
