Flowers set to begin rehab assignment this weekend

Flowers set to begin rehab assignment this weekend

The Braves’ catching corps appears to be approaching being fully healthy as Tyler Flowers should begin his rehab assignment soon. The Braves catching duo of Tyler Flowers and Kurt Suzuki was among the most productive in the major leagues last season much to the surprise of pretty much anyone. While many of us expected some regression (and with good reason), Flowers and Suzuki were still expected to be a net positive on the team especially when you factor in Flowers’ excellence at framing pitches for what is a relatively young rotation. Unfortunately, the first weeks of the season did...

Lineups: Atlanta Braves @ Chicago Cubs, April 14

It’s Newcomb vs. Quintana in the windy city. The Braves will hope to do battle with the Cubs today if the weather permits. Atlanta will send Sean Newcomb to the mound and Chicago will start Jose Quintana. Braves players have not had the best luck against Quintana. Freddie Freeman predictably has hit Quintana best with a 3-for-6 career mark against him. Braves catcher Kurt Suzuki has definitely seen Quintana the most and is 5-for-21 in his career against the lefty. Here's how we'll line up for today's 2:20 ET first pitch in Chicago! #ChopOnGame Preview: https://t.co/xCAeI8WN5K...

Braves blowout Rockies 8-3 and win third straight game

The Braves bats cannot be stopped. After a sizable delay in today’s game due to some snow finding its way to Coors Field, the Braves bats brought the heat. In the first inning the Braves got on the board with a moonshot from second baseman Ozzie Albies who is uber powerful for his size. The Braves were not done there as Freddie Freeman and Nick Markakis drew back to back walks in front of Kurt Suzuki who blooped a single to left center to load the bases. Preston Tucker has had a fine year to this point and continued his good work with a laser beam sacrifice fly to center field to score...
