Even Wilson, Wright can’t believe where they are

When Bryse Wilson strolled into manager Brian Snitker’s office Thursday, he didn’t anticipate being informed he’d start the second game of the season. When Kyle Wright did the same, he thought he was ticketed for Triple-A.

Trae Young named Eastern Conference Player of the Week

Trae Young named Eastern Conference Player of the Week

Well-deserved. The Atlanta Hawks put together a (very) strong showing in back-to-back wins over playoff-bound teams in the Utah Jazz and the Philadelphia 76ers. Though a team-wide effort was required to produce those wins, the team’s offensive engine received an impressive piece of recognition on Monday, when rookie point guard Trae Young was named Eastern Conference Player of the Week for the period covering March 18 through 24. Young was flanked by James Harden in the Western Conference and his numbers were very strong during this three-game stretch. The former Oklahoma star averaged...

Falcons double dip in the trenches in SB Nation’s latest mock draft

Falcons double dip in the trenches in SB Nation’s latest mock draft

A ferocious defensive tackle and athletic interior offensive lineman make it to Atlanta, courtesy of Dan Kadar. In Dan Kadar’s latest mock draft for SB Nation, the Falcons justifiably focus their attention on the trenches. The players they wind up with will rank as a surprise for some and a disappointment for others, but Kadar’s heart is in the right place and his picks make sense when you consider the context in which they occur. Given that, let’s dive in. 14. Atlanta Falcons: Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson Offseason needs: Defensive tackle, cornerback, tight end Maybe it’s...

Atlanta Falcons prospect scouting report: DE Montez Sweat, Mississippi State

What does one of the best defenders in the draft have to offer to the Falcons? Let’s find out. The defensive line theme continues with Eric Robinson as he focuses on another elite prospect that could enhance the Atlanta Falcons defensive line. We all know it’s coming. At this juncture of the offseason, it is quite obvious that the Atlanta Falcons are going to make multiple additions to the defensive line in the April NFL Draft. A matter of ‘when’ and not ‘if’. Sitting at the 14th overall selection in the upcoming draft, the Falcons may have an opportunity to grab a...
The Braves have rookies in the rotation. Good for them

The Braves have rookies in the rotation. Good for them

It’s scary, yes. The Atlanta Braves’ starting pitchers for their opening series in Philadelphia this week include Julio Teheran, who made the playoff roster only as a long reliever, and then two rookies. Max Fried is penciled in as the No. 5 starter. Mike Foltynewicz, Kevin Gausman and Mike Soroka aren’t yet healthy. Touki Toussaint has been sent to the minors. The team that didn’t sign a starter over the winter is running low on starters, and it’s not yet April. The Braves are doomed!
