Matt Wisler to start Friday’s game against Marlins, Max Fried oddly demoted

Matt Wisler to start Friday’s game against Marlins, Max Fried oddly demoted

Your guess is as good as mine. Matt Wisler will start Friday night’s game against the Marlins after being recalled from Gwinnett. Max Fried, who was called up from Gwinnett on Thursday in order to start in place of injured Mike Soroka before the game was eventually postponed due to rain, was sent back down. Your guess is as good as mine. Sean Newcomb was originally scheduled to start tonight’s game, but it appears he will now pitch with an extra day’s rest on Saturday. This will be Wisler’s third start of the year for Atlanta. His first one against the Mets was encouraging (7...

Mike Soroka placed on 10-day DL with shoulder strain, Max Fried to start tonight

Mike Soroka placed on 10-day DL with shoulder strain, Max Fried to start tonight

Early reports indicate the injury is not a serious one. Mike Soroka has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with a shoulder strain. Max Fried will start tonight against the Cubs. Soroka hadn’t show any visible signs of ailment during his most recent start in Miami. The Braves made the move retroactive to May 14th so he will be available to come off the DL on May 24th. Shoulder injuries are always a concern, but Mark Bowman reports “the early thought is (Soroka) will be ready to make his next start.” Soroka owns a 3.68 ERA and 2.80 FIP with strong strikeout and walk numbers through...

Braves place Dansby Swanson on DL with sore wrist, Preston Tucker recalled

Braves place Dansby Swanson on DL with sore wrist, Preston Tucker recalled

The Braves have placed shortstop Dansby Swanson on the 10-day disabled list due to left wrist inflammation. Just hours after being optioned to Gwinnett to make room for Jose Bautista’s arrival, Preston Tucker was recalled to Atlanta. He will be on the bench for tonight’s series opener against the Giants. First pitch is scheduled for 7:35 p.m. Johan Camargo is starting at shortstop tonight for the Braves and batting seventh. Wrist injuries can be nasty and can take a long time to heal if not allowed proper time to rest. Mark Bowman reported earlier today that Swanson’s wrist is...

Shane Carle avoids serious injury, listed as day-to-day

Shane Carle avoids serious injury, listed as day-to-day

Of all the pleasant surprises in the early going of this season, perhaps no one has surprised more than reliever Shane Carle. So when Carle left Tuesday night’s game after throwing just two pitches, there was obvious reason for concern. Thankfully, it appears Carle avoided a serious injury. #Braves reliever Shane Carle is feeling better, listed as day-to-day.— David O'Brien (@DOBrienAJC) May 2, 2018 The Braves said Carle’s issue was numbness in two of his fingers, and while it may continue to cause him issues in the future, it’s (obviously) better than an elbow or shoulder...

Nick Markakis an unsung hero of the Braves’ red-hot start

Nick Markakis an unsung hero of the Braves’ red-hot start

Markakis is showing he still has something left in the tank as his Braves tenure comes to a close. We have reached the end of April, and the Braves have scored more runs than any National League team. The lineup tops the NL in batting average (.268), on-base percentage (.342), slugging percentage (.440), wRC+ (113) and position player WAR. Just like we all predicted a month ago, right? Ozzie Albies deserves to be the NL Player of the Month. Ronald Acuña looks like a star in the making. Freddie Freeman continues to hit at an incredible level. Kurt Suzuki (somehow) keeps on hitting. The...

Ronald Acuña being promoted to Atlanta, per report

It appears the Braves’ superstar prospect may be on his way up. The Braves are calling up top prospect Ronald Acuña, according to multiple reports out of Venezuela tonight. The first report of Acuña being promoted came from Daniel Álvarez of EnTV Miami, a Venezuelan television affiliate based out of Miami. Source: Ronal Acuña has been called up to the Big Leagues. #Braves.— Daniel Álvarez Montes (@DaniAlvarez_16) April 25, 2018 There were other reports of Acuña’s promotion shortly after that, including one who said his source was Acuña’s father. Ronald Acuña Jr. fue...
