Braves general manager Alex Anthopoulos isn't ready to provide a timetable for when prospect third baseman Austin Riley will make his way to the majors.

Johan Camargo will serve as the regular third baseman now that the Jose Bautista experiment has come to a close, but he could end up being a stopgap until Riley is ready to take over. The 21-year-old Riley mashed to the tune of a .333/.394/.667 batting line with six homers over 27 games prior to a recent promotion to Triple-A. He's batting .308/.362/.500 with three homers over 13 game with Gwinnett. "Obviously, we're high on [Riley] and excited about him," said Anthopoulos. "He'll tell us when he's ready. If he performs and gets hot, that's a good problem to have. You can never have too many good players. If Austin can show us he's ready, we'd love to be in that spot where we have a tough decision to make." It's conceivable that Riley could force the issue later this season.

Manuel Margot (wrist) returned to the starting lineup Sunday against the Pirates and went 1-for-4 with a single and an RBI.

Margot plated a run with a ground out. The young outfielder was limited to pinch-hitting duties the previous two games after hyperextending his left wrist during Thursday's game. It has been a struggle for Margot this season, as he holds a weak .194/.239/.295 batting line over 36 games.
May 21 - 9:10 AM

Hernan Perez (wrist) went 1-for-4 with a single and a strikeout in his return to the starting lineup Sunday against the Twins.

Perez missed a few days with a wrist issue, but he should be good to go moving forward. He started in right field Sunday and should see semi-regular playing time while Ryan Braun (back) is sidelined.
May 21 - 9:03 AM

Jorge Alfaro (knee) went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in his return to action Sunday against the Cardinals.

Alfaro was limited to pinch-hitting duties on Saturday after banging his right knee during Friday's game, but fortunately it wasn't anything serious. The 24-year-old backstop is batting .255/.315/.382 with four homers and 10 RBI through 32 games this season.

Brian McCann blasted a two-run homer on Sunday, powering the Astros to a 3-1 victory over the Indians on Sunday night.

His two-run shot off of Indians' starter Carlos Carrasco broke a scoreless tie in the seventh inning. It was McCann's lone hit in three at-bats on the night and he's now hitting .248/.347/.396 with four homers and 14 RBI on the season.

Jose Altuve went 2-for-4 and swiped his third base of the season as the Astros defeated the Indians on Sunday night in Houston.

While Altuve hasn't been running wild on the bases like he had in previous seasons, he's still hitting a terrific .316/.367/.420 with two homers and 20 RBI. From a fantasy perspective though, owners are surely expecting more power and speed out of a player that they invested an early first-round selection in.

Ken Giles slammed the door on the Indians in the ninth inning on Sunday, recording the final two outs to earn his eighth save of the season.

Giles came on with a man at third and one out in the ninth, allowing the inherited runner to score before closing out the ballgame. He has now converted each of his first eight save chances on the season while compiling a 3.60 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 12/0 K/BB ratio in his 15 innings of work.
May 20 - 11:00 PM

Lance McCullers was dominant in Sunday's victory over the Indians, allowing just one hit and a pair of walks over seven shutout innings.

McCullers racked up eight strikeouts on the night. The right-hander retired the first 15 hitters that he faced until Jason Kipnis lined a single into right field to lead off the sixth inning. With the victory, McCullers improves to 6-2 on the season to go along with a 3.20 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 66/23 K/BB ratio across 59 innings. He'll look to replicate this fine effort on Saturday in a rematch against these same Indians in Cleveland.
