Sean Newcomb aims to reach a point in his career when he will not be forced to battle trouble as frequently as he has during the first few months of his career.

Book-Ender: Inciarte finishes road trip in style

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 20:50:16 EDT

Ender Inciarte has not suddenly evolved into some kind of legitimate power threat. But as the Braves' National League Gold Glove center fielder has matured offensively, he has enhanced his fly ball percentage and displayed his home run trot much more frequently than ever envisioned.

Improved slider proves to be key for Teheran

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 20:47:52 EDT

Unpredictable seems to be an appropriate term to describe Julio Teheran's inconsistent season. So, maybe it shouldn't be surprising to learn after shying away from his slider in his first two starts this month, the Braves right-hander relied heavily on this weapon as he produced one of his best starts of the season in Monday night's 3-0 loss to the Rockies at Coors Field.
