Inside the numbers - A look at Newcomb’s first three starts

Now that Sean Newcomb has made three starts in the majors, it’s time to take a look at his production thus far When left-handed pitching prospect Sean Newcomb got the call to come up and make his major league debut against the New York Mets in game one of a doubleheader on June 10, many Braves fans were simply relieved to see anyone on the mound other than Bartolo Colon. Newcomb’s debut evoked feelings of curiosity and excitement. While a lot can be taken from reading the scouting reports about his tendencies, strengths and weaknesses in the minor leagues, it is not until a prospect is...

Braves RHP Bartolo Colon to remain on DL with stiff back

ATLANTA (AP) - Bartolo Colon's return to the Atlanta Braves' rotation has been put on hold. Colon was scheduled to start Wednesday against San Francisco after coming off the 10-day disabled list with what was described as a strained oblique muscle. But manager Brian Snitker said Tuesday the 44-year-old Colon ...

Bartolo Colon scratched from next start due to stiff back

Bartolo Colon scratched from next start due to stiff back

It looks like we will not be seeing Bartolo return to the mound for the Braves quite yet Much has been made both of much maligned Braves starter Bartolo Colon’s hold on a roster spot as well as the Braves’ plan to employ a six-man rotation upon his return from the disabled list. With newcomer Sean Newcomb pitching well in his first two starts, it has only further problematized Colon’s return to the rotation as the Braves are clinging to respectability this season and Colon’s results this season have been, well, not good. However, whether it be because there was an actual injury that...

Braves manager says team could explore 6-man rotation when Bartolo Colon returns

Braves manager says team could explore 6-man rotation when Bartolo Colon returns

Colon is eligible to come off the DL in a few days. Braves manager Brian Snitker said on Wednesday that he would not completely rule out the possibility of adding Bartolo Colon back to the rotation when he is ready to be activated, going with a six-man rotation without displacing anyone. Snit wouldnt rule out the idea of going with a six man rotation when Bartolo returns, meaning Newcomb would remain in the rotation. #Braves— Kevin McAlpin (@KevinMcAlpin) June 14, 2017 This likely mean Sean Newcomb earned a few more starts thanks to his sterling debut on Saturday, when he hurled 6...

Braves place Eric O’Flaherty on the DL with “rotator cuff tendinitis”, recall Jason Hursh

Braves place Eric O’Flaherty on the DL with “rotator cuff tendinitis”, recall Jason Hursh

EOF got roughed up again and now it looks like he could be missing some significant time on the DL. Eric O’Flaherty has really struggled this season...emphasis on REALLY. After surprisingly making the Braves roster out of spring training, O’Flaherty has been worth -0.5 WAR on the season and after getting beat up by the Mets yesterday, he has given up home runs in 4 of his last 6 relief appearances and sports a 7.85 ERA in 2017. He has not looked remotely like the dominant reliever he was during his first stint with the team. Not unlike Bartolo Colon in the past week, it appears that the...

Preview: Can Julio Teheran finally get things back on track?

Julio Teheran’s had a rough season so far, but he’ll be facing off tonight against a team he has good memories of pitching against. Tonight will be Bartolo Colon Bobblehead Night at SunTrust Park, and while you could argue that Colon is very fortunate to still be around for his own bobblehead night, there’s another pitcher in the Braves rotation who needs to step things up. Julio Teheran has had a disappointing start to the season so far, and he’ll be looking to turn things around tonight against the Mets. Julio Teheran’s ERA (5.40) and FIP (5.74) are already two points higher...

R.A. Dickey, Braves look for series split against Phillies

Dickey looks to get back on track against Phillies. The Atlanta Braves will be looking to salvage a series split against the Philadelphia Phillies Thursday night when the two teams wrap up a four-game set at SunTrust Park. Philadelphia opened the series on Monday by battering Bartolo Colon who later ended up on the disabled list. Aaron Nola followed on Tuesday with a good outing to silence the Braves bats in a 3-1 win over Jaime Garcia. Atlanta struck back on Wednesday to the tune of a 14-1 win behind another solid performance from Mike Foltynewicz. The Braves will turn to R.A. Dickey on...

NL East: Braves place Colon on DL

Check out all the news happening in the National League East. Hearts across America are a little bruised this morning as Big Sexy heads to the 10-day disabled list for a left oblique strain. Uh, yeah, oblique strain...let’s all go with that to live in a beautiful little world built on ignorance. Bartolo Colon’s 2017 season was not going how the Braves would have hoped. Signed during the offseason to provide stability to the rotation, his 7.78 ERA has done the exact opposite. Maybe a quick DL stint will give the veteran a decent enough rest so that he has a chance of bouncing back by...
