The Daily Chop: Sean Newcomb to get another chance as a starter

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports Newcomb will get a chance in spring training to compete for a spot in the rotation. Previously this week we discussed the decisions that the Atlanta Braves will have to make in regards to four players with team options. When discussing Julio Teheran, I mentioned that the team would have to consider the 174 innings pitched and how they would go about replacing that should they opt to part ways. Looking at next season’s potential rotation, only Mike Soroka, Max Fried and Mike Foltynewicz appear to be penciled in. Mark Bowman mentioned another candidate in his...

The Braves currently have nine players who will be arbitration eligible this offseason. MLB Trade Rumors has released its annual projection of arbitration salaries for the upcoming offseason.

The NLDS returns to SunTrust Park on Wednesday for a pivotal winner take all Game 5 of the NLDS between the Atlanta Braves and the St. Louis Cardinals. The Braves came into the series boasting one of the league’s best offenses but it has largely been held in check by St. Louis pitching. The good news is, Atlanta’s pitching staff has pretty much matched the Cardinals pitch for pitch with great performances by Mike Foltynewicz and Mike Soroka in Games 2 & 3. While Ronald Acuña Jr, Dansby Swanson and Ozzie...

Atlanta Braves: Can Mike Foltynewicz repeat his success from game 2?

It will be nearly impossible to reproduce such a masterpiece, but if anyone can do it with the series on the line, perhaps it’s the Atlanta Braves top starter from last year.

Forget for a moment that you are a long and suffering Atlanta sports fan and the NLDS between the Atlanta Braves and the St. Louis Cardinals has been wildly entertaining. We have had good pitching, good defense, controversial moments and now we will get a winner take all Game 5. The Braves missed out on multiple opportunities in a 5-4 loss in 10 innings to the Cardinals in Game 4 on Monday.

On to Game 5. The Atlanta Braves had their chances but ultimately came up short in a 5-4, 10-inning loss to the St. Louis Cardinal in Game 4. Atlanta finished the game 0-for-9 with runners in scoring position and left nine men on base. That sets the stage for a winner take all Game 5 back at SunTrust Park on Wednesday with Mike Foltynewicz to square off in a rematch against Jack Flaherty. Brian Snitker discussed the missed opportunities late and disclosed that Max Fried was unavailable. He confirmed that Foltynewicz will indeed get the start in Game 5.

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports The series will shift back to Atlanta for a decisive Game 5 If you enjoyed watching Mike Foltynewicz and Jack Flaherty duke it out last Friday afternoon, good news - it looks like we might have ourselves a rematch. With the Cardinals’ brutal 5-4 victory over the Braves today, the NLDS will head back to Atlanta for a winner-take all Game 5. Some late inning bullpen nonsense, coupled with the Cardinals’ inherent ability to channel voodoo, allowed St. Louis to improbably string together one of the more heartbreaking rallies in recent memory.

Anatomy of a start: Mike Foltynewicz dominates the Cardinals

Photo by Kevin C. Cox/ A pitch-by-pitch look at Mike Foltynewicz’s brilliant start in Game 2. Mike Foltynewicz turned in one of the best performances of his career in Friday’s Game 2 victory for the Atlanta Braves. Foltynewicz allowed just three hits and struck out seven over seven scoreless innings, exhibiting complete control. He became just the third Atlanta Braves pitcher to log seven scoreless innings without a walk in a postseason start, joining Hall of Famers Tom Glavine and Greg Maddux. The big take away from Foltynewicz’ performance was his slider and how much he relied...

While most eyes were focused on Mike Foltynewicz’s performance in Game 2. Max Fried has turned heads with a pair of dominant relief appearances. While Fried spent most of the season as a starter, the Braves have decided that he may be more valuable to them in the postseason as a reliever. Brian Snitker discussed Fried during Saturday’s off day and said that he hasn’t ruled out the possibility of using Fried in the ninth inning at some point in the...
