Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

Was looking at overall numbers since last season's All-Star break while considering my ASG picks for this season. One thing I had not expected to find: Since July 15, 2016, Atlanta's Ender Inciarte leads all big-leaguers with 200 hits.

Power Rankings: Braves trending upward

The Braves have been one of the five best teams in baseball the past two weeks, winning some close games and crushing the ball in the process. Dansby Swanson has been one of the bright spots.

Stats & Info

Dickey feeling at home in Atlanta

In his last four starts, R.A. Dickey has three quality outings at SunTrust Park and a stinker against the Nationals on the road (eight runs in five innings). Such has been a larger theme for the knuckleballer this season.

The walk-off home run that Braves LF Matt Kemp hit in the 11th inning of Wednesday's 5-3 win vs. the Giants was the eighth extra-inning long ball of his career, fourth-most among active players behind Albert Pujols (15), Nelson Cruz (10) and Brian McCann (9), per the Elias Sports Bureau.

Braves' Freeman could play 3B upon DL return

The Braves could have a problem when Freddie Freeman returns from the DL, since he and hot-hitting Matt Adams both have primarily played first base in the majors. Atlanta, however, is considering playing Freeman at third base.

Braves' Colon to remain on DL with stiff back

Bartolo Colon's return to the Atlanta Braves' rotation has been put on hold, as manager Brian Snitker said Tuesday that the 44-year-old right-hander will remain on the DL a bit longer because of a stiff back.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Matt Adams has done a great job filling in for Freddie Freeman in Atlanta (slugging .658 with the Braves), but once Freeman returns there may not be room for him. With today's pitcher-heavy rosters, it's hard to carry a 1B-only bench player. How about a trade to the Astros, where Carlos Beltran hasn't been that good, or the Royals, who could use a DH?
