Guillermo Heredia: Heading overseas
Heredia agreed to a contract with the SSG Landers of the Korea Baseball Organization on Tuesday, Francys Romero of beisbolfr.com reports.
Heredia was designated for assignment by Atlanta last week and has opted to continue his career overseas. The 31-year-old appeared in 74 games in 2022 and had a .158/.220/.342 slash line with three home runs and eight RBI.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Bumped from 40-man roster
Heredia was designated for assignment by Atlanta on Tuesday.
Heredia hung around as short-side platoon option for Atlanta these past two seasons, but he fell out of favor after hitting .158 with a 39 percent strikeout in 74 games in 2022. He could be a non-roster invitee to spring training.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Recalled by Atlanta
Heredia was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday.
Heredia was sent to the minors Sunday but will rejoin the major-league roster less than a week later after Ehire Adrianza (undisclosed) was placed on the injured list Friday. Heredia saw sporadic playing time prior to his demotion and will likely serve in a depth role now that he's back in the big leagues.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Sent to minors
Heredia was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday.
The 31-year-old has appeared in only four games with seven plate appearances since the All-Star break, and he'll head to Triple-A to make room on the big-league roster for catcher Chadwick Tromp. Heredia has a .549 OPS in 47 games this year and could rejoin Atlanta down the stretch if the team needs outfield depth.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Seeing scarce playing time
Heredia remains on the bench for Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks.
Heredia has picked up only three starts since June 2, and his playing-time outlook doesn't look to have improved even after Adam Duvall suffered a season-ending wrist injury. So long as all of Ronald Acuna, Eddie Rosario, Marcell Ozuna, Michael Harris and William Contreras are healthy, Heredia doesn't look like he'll have a path for even short-side platoon work out of the Atlanta outfield....

Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Home run in win
Heredia went 1-for-2 with one homer, one RBI and one run scored in Tuesday's victory over the Athletics.
Heredia hit the game-winning home run in the bottom of the seventh inning off Lou Trivino. The outfielder has seen limited time this season and a .140/.218/.400 slash line will not help his case for more playing time. The home run was his first since May 4 and only his third of the season.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Slugs second homer
Heredia went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run, a walk and two runs scored Wednesday against the Mets.
Heredia was a late addition to the lineup after Travis Demeritte (undisclosed) was a late scratch. Heredia took advantage of the unexpected opportunity and smacked his second home run of the season in the eighth inning. He's served primarily as a depth outfielder -- particularly since Ronald Acuna's return -- and has only four hits in 33 plate appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Added to lineup
Heredia is starting Wednesday against the Mets.
The 31-year-old was initially slated to be out of the lineup for the fifth time in the last six games, but he'll start in right field and bat ninth after Travis Demeritte (undisclosed) was a late scratch. Heredia is hitting .111 with a home run, a double, four runs and two RBI this year.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Belts first long ball
Heredia went 1-for-3 with a solo home run Monday in a loss to the Dodgers.
Los Angeles starter Clayton Kershaw cruised through four innings before Heredia got to him for a solo homer in the sixth. The long ball was Heredia's third hit and first home run this season. The 31-year-old hasn't hit more than six homers in any MLB campaign, so there's no reason to expect this to be part of a power surge.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Scores three times
Heredia went 1-for-4 with a double, a walk, three runs and an RBI in Tuesday's 16-4 win over the Nationals.
Heredia made the most of his first start of the season, but he's unlikely to see a major uptick in opportunities as a result. He filled in in right field for the lefty-hitting Eddie Rosario in right field due to the Nationals bringing a lefty (Patrick Corbin) to the hill, but Rosario isn't necessarily viewed as a strict platoon player for Atlanta....

Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Not starting Saturday
Heredia isn't starting Saturday's game against the Reds, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
Even though Ronald Acuna (knee) has been sidelined to begin the regular season, Heredia will be out of the lineup for a third straight game to begin the year. Adam Duvall will start in center field while Alex Dickerson serves as the designated hitter Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Not starting Thursday
Heredia isn't starting Thursday's game against the Reds.
Heredia should see a decent amount of at-bats early in the season while Ronald Acuna (knee) is sidelined, but he'll be out of the lineup for Opening Day. Adam Duvall will start in center field while Alex Dickerson serves as the designated hitter.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Starting Friday
Heredia (hand) is starting in center field and batting eighth in Friday's Grapefruit League game against Minnesota.
Heredia was hit by a pitch on the hand Wednesday against the Red Sox and sat out Thursday's contest, but he apparently avoided a serious injury and will quickly rejoin the lineup. The 31-year-old could see more action early in the season as Atlanta's fourth outfielder until Ronald Acuna (knee) receives full clearance to play the field.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Dealing with sore hand
Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said Thursday that Heredia is dealing with a sore hand, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
Heredia seemingly avoided any structural damage to his hand after he was hit by a pitch in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Red Sox. Snitker termed Heredia's absence from the lineup Thursday against the Rays as a "rest day," so the 31-year-old stands a good chance of returning to action over the weekend.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Exits after HBP
Heredia was removed from Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Red Sox in the top of the fourth inning after being hit on the hand by a pitch, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Heredia appeared to be in considerable pain after being hit by the pitch, and he was immediately removed from the game. It's not yet clear whether the issue will impact his availability for Opening Day.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Avoids arbitration with Atlanta
Heredia agreed to a one-year, $1 million deal Tuesday, avoiding arbitration, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
Heredia played a minor role on Atlanta's championship team, hitting a modest .220/.311/.354 in 347 plate appearances. Given his ability to handle center field, that line is enough to keep him around in a bench role, especially as his right-handed bat makes him a natural platoon partner for Joc Pederson....

Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Back to bench after five starts
Heredia isn't in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Yankees.
Heredia started in each of past five games and is typically included in the lineup versus opposing lefty pitchers like the Yankees' Andrew Heaney, but he'll head to the bench while manager Brian Snitker turns to the lefty-hitting Joc Pederson in center field. Heredia didn't help his case for sticking in the starting nine by going 1-for-19 over the past five games.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Guillermo Heredia: Fourth straight start
Heredia will start in center field and bat eighth Sunday against the Orioles.
Heredia has gone 0-for-12 over the past three games, but he'll nonetheless pick up his fourth consecutive start in center field as Atlanta wraps up its series in Baltimore. He's mostly been the beneficiary of Atlanta having an extra lineup spot available due to the designated hitter, so expect Heredia's playing time to take a hit when the team begins a a five-game homestand during the upcoming week....
