Brian McCann removed from game with left knee soreness

Brian McCann removed from game with left knee soreness

Photo by Rich von Biberstein/Icon Sportswire via The Braves are down to one catcher, at least for the rest of Tuesday evening. The Atlanta Braves are battling extensive injury issues at the moment, with Dansby Swanson, Ender Inciarte and Austin Riley on the shelf. On Tuesday night, the list of maladies continued to grow, with catcher Brian McCann leaving the series opener against the Miami Marlins after just three innings of work. Tyler Flowers replaced McCann behind the plate but, over the final six innings (or more) against a divisional opponent, Atlanta is forced to operate with...

Braves vs. Marlins, August 20, 2019: Game Thread & Discussion

Photo by John Adams/Icon Sportswire via The Braves welcome the Marlins to town to bring the home stand to a close. Tonight begins the third series of a nine-game home stand for the Braves, and hopefully they can ride their momentum into a victory. The Braves are 5-0-2 in their last seven series, including a recent split against these same Marlins. For a game between two teams that are 27 ½ games apart in the standings, there sure are plenty of fun story lines to track this evening. Will Ronald Acuña, Jr. steal his 30th base tonight and join the 30/30 club? Will he hit a home run and...

Ortega’s slam earns him another start; Acuña, Jr. back at leadoff for first game of Braves-Marlins

Ortega’s slam earns him another start; Acuña, Jr. back at leadoff for first game of Braves-Marlins

Photo by Logan Riely/ Rafael Ortega’s heroics against the Dodgers did not go unnoticed After Alex Anthopoulos’ recent statement about “going with the hot hand” and using the best 25 players on the roster, it looks like Brian Snitker is following suit. After Rafael Ortega’s surprising grand slam on Sunday which put the game - and series - against the Dodgers out of reach, he has been upgraded to “hot hand” status and finds himself planted into the Braves’ lineup again. He will bat eighth and man left field. The off day is over. Let's get back to #Braves baseball!#ChopOn...

Braves, Keuchel have redemption on the brain against Marlins

Braves, Keuchel have redemption on the brain against Marlins

Adam Hagy-USA TODAY Sports The last time Dallas saw Miami, it was not pretty When the Braves last saw the Marlins, they had just toppled the mighty Twins on their way to a series victory against one of baseball’s best teams. Instead of the momentum carrying over after the Minnesota series, the Braves wound up struggling and splitting the four-game set against last-place Miami, whom they had handled with ease for much of the year. Two weeks later, coming off an important series win against the Dodgers, the narrative is similar as they roll into a mid-week series with the Marlins -...
