Ender Inciarte won’t be an option for the Atlanta Braves in the division series after all. The Braves had hoped to activate Inciarte in time for this weekend’s series against the New York Mets but he once again experienced discomfort in his injured hamstring while running and testing it out this afternoon.

With that as a backdrop, Inciarte has been ruled out for the division series but could still could be a possibility for the NLCS if the Braves advance.

For now, Inciarte will be sent back to Atlanta for further evaluation and treatment. With Inciarte ruled out, Billy Hamilton’s spot on the postseason roster is pretty much cemented.
