ATLANTA — Braves top prospect Cristian Pache exited Tuesday night’s game against the Marlins with left groin tightness.
It was not apparent when Pache began feeling the discomfort. He was replaced by Ender Inciarte in center field when the fifth inning began.
Pache ranks as MLB Pipeline’s No. 11 prospect. Concerns about him being ready offensively have grown as the 22-year-old center fielder has hit .133 (4-for-30) with 13 strikeouts this season. He struck out in his only two plate appearances Tuesday.
