  • Braves' Jarred Kelenic: In line for everyday at-bats

    Atlanta president of baseball operations Alex Anthopoulos said Thursday that the team is leaning toward playing Kelenic every day in left field rather than platooning him, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    This isn't terribly surprising to hear since Atlanta doesn't have an obvious platoon partner for Kelenic right now, but it's nonetheless encouraging for his fantasy prospects. The 24-year-old actually had a better OPS against lefties (.774) than he did versus righties (.738) in 2023, although in his career he has just a .566 OPS and 29.9 percent strikeout rate against southpaws. Atlanta feels that giving Kelenic regular work versus lefties will be the best way for him to improve.

  • Braves' Jarred Kelenic: Dealt to Atlanta

    Kelenic, Marco Gonzales and Evan White were traded from Seattle to Atlanta on Sunday in exchange for Cole Phillips (elbow) and Jackson Kowar, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    Kelenic was once regarded as the top prospect in baseball, but he struggled to consistently perform at the major-league level with the Mariners. Over portions of three seasons in Seattle, he slashed .204/.283/.373 with 32 home runs, 109 RBI, 105 runs and 24 steals over 252 games. However, he'll now get a chance for a fresh start in Atlanta as part of a move that was largely made by Seattle for financial purposes. Atlanta has a hole in left field, and the expectation is that Kelenic will start there against right-handed pitchers while Vaughn Grissom starts against southpaws, per David O'Brien of The Athletic.

    Kelenic will hit the bench against lefty Andrew Heaney and the Rangers on Saturday.

  • Mariners' Jarred Kelenic: Takes seat Wednesday

    Kelenic is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Astros.

    Kelenic has only one extra-base hit (a double) in 43 plate appearances since returning Sept. 11 from a fractured left foot, though he has drawn eight walks. Dylan Moore, Julio Rodriguez and Teoscar Hernandez will start across the outfield for Seattle on Wednesday as Sam Haggerty occupies the DH role.

  • Mariners' Jarred Kelenic: Productive in one-hit day

    Kelenic went 1-for-4 with an RBI fielder's choice, a run-scoring single, a stolen base, a walk and a run in a loss to the Rangers on Sunday.

    The 24-year-old's busy stat line had a bit of everything, including his 13th steal of the season. Kelenic's afternoon also included his second two-RBI tally over the last four starts, pushing his average and OPS to .286 and .766, respectively, in nine games since returning from an extended stint on the injured list due to a fractured foot.

  • Mariners' Jarred Kelenic: Idle against southpaw

    Kelenic isn't starting Saturday versus Texas.

  • Mariners' Jarred Kelenic: Snaps RBI drought Tuesday

    Kelenic went 2-for-5 with a pair of RBI singles in a win over the Athletics on Tuesday, marking his first two runs driven in since July 17.

    He's now played five games since his return from a near-two-month stay on the injured list due to a fractured foot. The outfielder has a pair of two-hit efforts in that span and has reached safely in three of those contests overall. Next up for Kelenic in terms of unfavorable streaks is a homerless drought that's now at an atypical 36 games and dates all the way back to June 9, when factoring in his time on the IL.

  • Mariners' Jarred Kelenic: On base three times

    Kelenic (foot) went 2-for-3 with a walk in Friday's 6-3 loss to the Dodgers.

    Kelenic had been battling a sore foot after fouling a ball off it earlier in the week. He was one of three Mariners to get on base multiples times in this loss, and one of two with multiple hits. The outfielder is at a .254/.323/.437 slash line with 11 home runs, 45 RBI, 43 runs scored and 12 stolen bases through 92 contests. He should have a steady role in the corner outfield if he can stay healthy.

  • Mariners' Jarred Kelenic: Back in lineup Friday

    Kelenic (foot) is back in the lineup Friday against the Dodgers.

    Kelenic will start in left field and bat sixth versus the Dodgers and right-hander Bobby Miller after missing a couple of games with a sore right foot. The 24-year-old is slashing .251/.319/.435 with 11 homers and 12 steals through 91 major-league games this season for Seattle.

  • Mariners' Jarred Kelenic: Nursing sore foot

    Kelenic is not in the lineup Wednesday due to a sore right foot, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    Kelenic is still sore after fouling a ball off the foot Monday. Notably, it's not the same foot that he previously fractured. Kelenic is available off the bench Wednesday, although the Mariners would prefer to hold him out until this weekend following Thursday's off day.
