Braves News: Sighs of relief as bullpen nearly implodes again

Adam Hagy-USA TODAY Sports The Braves can never have an easy win. BRAVES NEWS Braves pounce on Mets’ ‘pen, hold off rivals What an insane game. The Braves struggled to figure out Steven Matz, but torched Seth Lugo after Matz was inexplicably removed from the game in the seventh. Atlanta led 6-2 entering the ninth, but made nothing easy on themselves as Mark Melancon struggled mightily. Johan Camargo also had an absolutely putrid game all-around and may have played his way out of the starting lineup for good. The Braves did hold on for a 6-4 win, but man did they make it ugly. 2018...

Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap: Bryce Ball impressed in Rome debut as Danville bats erupt

It was a quiet night on the Braves farm, but Bryce Ball’s Rome debut was one of many big nights at the plate. The Atlanta Braves farm system didn’t have much action when it came to actual games, but there was certainly plenty of excitement at the plate and on the base paths. Let’s take a look how it went down on the Braves minor leagues. Gwinnett Stripers — OFF We know the story here. Drew Waters has 13 total bases in his first six games in Triple-A.

Will the Braves demote Johan Camargo or Austin Riley?

Photo by Mike Zarrilli/ With Dansby Swanson coming back from injury soon, the Braves will be tasked with an interesting decision. The Braves may be forced to send down to Triple-A a player who, at some point, was thought to be a central cog of the team. Unless another unfortunate injury to a position player occurs in the next few days before Dansby Swanson returns from the Injured List, the Braves will likely send either Johan Camargo or Austin Riley to Triple-A Gwinnett to make room for Swanson on the active roster.
