Braves recall Preston Tucker from Gwinnett

Braves recall Preston Tucker from Gwinnett

The Braves have filled the roster spot vacated by Luiz Gohara. When the Braves sent Luiz Gohara back down to Triple-A to get settled back into his role as a starter, it opened up a roster spot for a reinforcement for the Braves’ last series before the All-Star break. There was some merit to bringing up another pitcher (which may end up happening anyways before the end of that series) or to bolster the Braves’ bench which is....lacking in some ways. While other options such as Michael Reed existed, the Braves went with a familiar face for this roster move. #Braves recalled OF Preston...

Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap 7/4: Your Special July 4th MiLB Extravaganza

Cristian Pache, Michael Reed and Jean Carlos Encarnacion were pulled due to possible injuries. However, there were some really strong performances. Gwinnett Stripers 5, Norfolk Tides 10 Box Score Rio Ruiz, 3B: 3-5, 2B, RBI, K Preston Tucker, LF: 1-4, 3B, RBI Matt Wisler, SP: 4IP, 11H, 7ER, 1BB, 4K Chad Bell, RP: 1IP, 1H, 0ER, 0BB, 2K Matt Wisler had his worst start of the year. I’m not sure what more I can add to that. The bullpen didn’t help things either allowing another 3 runs over 4 innings with Chad Bell being the only guy to not give up a run. The offense tried. The Stripers...
