Short on subs, Braves turn to Teheran in pinch

Sat, 29 Apr 2017 18:48:54 EDT

When National League teams opt to carry just a four-man bench in order to have an extra reliever, managers are sometimes forced to get creative during games. Add in an injury to a starting position player, and that's when things can get really interesting.



Freeman's HR caps Braves' rallies vs. Crew

Sat, 29 Apr 2017 00:42:57 EDT

Freddie Freeman's two-run homer in the ninth gave the Braves a 10-8 victory over the Brewers after Atlanta overcame a pair of four-run deficits on Friday night at Miller Park.



Battling Braves believe in second chances

Sat, 29 Apr 2017 01:26:59 EDT

After a frustrating first four at-bats, Freddie Freeman just wanted one more chance. Thanks to the Atlanta offense erasing a pair of four-run deficits, Freeman got his wish in the ninth inning. He made the most of it, launching a go-ahead two-run home run to lift the Braves to a 10-8 victory over the Brewers on Friday.

Davidson perfect at plate for Fire Frogs

Sat, 29 Apr 2017 01:21:00 EDT

Francisco Mejia has already piled up plenty of hits for Double-A Akron this season, but it wasn't until Friday night that the Indians' No. 2 prospect entered the home run column, connecting on a solo shot in the ninth inning of the RubberDucks' 6-1 win over Bowie.



Phillips again out of lineup, but near return

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 19:42:34 EDT

Braves second baseman Brandon Phillips was out of the lineup for the second consecutive game Friday with a groin strain, but the veteran is making progress.



Suzuki's 3-run homer lifts Braves to win

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 19:47:51 EDT

Landing at LaGuardia Airport this week with a six-game losing streak in tow, the Braves needed something to jolt them out of their recent malaise -- and quickly. The Mets gave it to them in the form of their own miserable week, which included a pair of defeats and the losses of their two biggest stars.

Dickey doesn't expect to miss start after injury

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 17:37:22 EDT

Braves right-hander R.A. Dickey doesn't expect to miss a start after exiting Thursday's game against the Mets with a left quad spasm.



Suzuki makes up for missed knuckleball

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 19:41:04 EDT

The knuckleball from R.A. Dickey fluttered in and took a severe late left turn, and Kurt Suzuki missed it. It happens. It's an accepted hazard of trying to catch a knuckleball.

Wentz fires six scoreless for Rome

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 01:00:28 EDT

Tyler Mahle's chances of throwing his second straight perfect game came undone just two batters into his start on Thursday. The Reds' No. 10 prospect still was plenty good, tossing six dominant frames to extend his scoreless innings streak to 19 2/3 for Double-A Pensacola.



Reliever Motte joins Braves; Recker optioned

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 21:14:01 EDT

The Braves selected the contract of right-handed pitcher Jason Motte from Triple-A Gwinnett and optioned catcher Anthony Recker to Gwinnett prior to Thursday's game against the Mets in New York.



Teheran, 5-run 1st help Braves thump Mets

Wed, 26 Apr 2017 23:35:39 EDT

The Braves carried a six-game losing streak into Citi Field on Wednesday, while the Mets came into the night having lost four straight. Both streaks could not remain intact. In the end, Julio Teheran's years-long mastery of the Mets trumped any more recent trends. The Braves starter held New York to two runs in 6 1/3 innings of an 8-2 victory, snapping Atlanta's funk while sending the Mets to their fifth straight defeat.



Citi Field dominance the standard for Teheran

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 00:27:01 EDT

The numbers say what they say, and Julio Teheran isn't going to tell you to ignore them. There's no reason for him to say that, because when the Braves right-hander faces the Mets, the numbers are all in his favor. When he pitches at Citi Field, it almost always goes well.



Freeman confident Swanson will surge

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 19:44:59 EDT

As bad as a .139 batting average looks, Freddie Freeman let Dansby Swanson know he has seen worse. He's done worse.

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 20:09:33 EDT

Braves trade reliever Hernandez to Angels

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 14:52:36 EDT

As the Braves have evaluated multiple ways to improve their bullpen, they never gained the sense David Hernandez would serve as a viable solution, at least not before he would have a chance to opt out of his Minor League contract next week. So instead of simply losing the veteran reliever without gaining anything in return, the Braves traded Hernandez to the Angels on Monday for a player to be named or cash considerations.

Wed, 26 Apr 2017 13:50:53 EDT

Confident Foltynewicz K's 9 in dominant start

Sun, 23 Apr 2017 19:26:39 EDT

If Mike Foltynewicz continues to make strides, the Braves might recognize their current stretch as when they gained a frontline starter.



Braves-Phillies' similarities could lead to rivalry

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 10:32:08 EDT

Some rivalries have historic foundations. Others are more temporal, based on trends that pull franchises toward each other.



Wisler called up to provide fresh arm out of 'pen

Sun, 23 Apr 2017 13:37:21 EDT

As the Braves adjust to their transition to a seven-man bullpen that is stacked with relievers who are out of Minor League options, they may attempt to keep their relief corps fresh by routinely promoting Luke Jackson, Aaron Blair or Matt Wisler to experience short stints on the big league roster.



Foltynewicz solid through 7; bullpen falters

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 09:18:29 EDT

The Phillies are not a home run-hitting team, but they showed some serious muscle late in Sunday afternoon's 5-2 victory over the Braves at Citizens Bank Park.



Allard hurls five scoreless frames for M-Braves

Sun, 23 Apr 2017 22:28:36 EDT

It seems like every time he takes the mound, Kolby Allard keeps showing why the Braves drafted him No. 14 overall two years ago. Allard is among Sunday's top prospect performers.



Hard-hit balls not falling for Swanson

Sun, 23 Apr 2017 01:07:14 EDT

What had the makings of a night when Dansby Swanson could jubilantly walk out of the clubhouse feeling like the tide had just turned, instead turned into one that none of the Braves want to relive any time soon.



Phillips extends streak, but Braves fall

Sun, 23 Apr 2017 00:38:08 EDT

How in the world did the Phillies win Saturday night at Citizens Bank Park? They blew a one-run lead in the ninth inning and allowed the go-ahead run in the 10th, but they scored twice in the bottom of the 10th in improbable fashion in a 4-3 victory over the Braves.



Colon never shy about going after strike zone

Sat, 22 Apr 2017 19:45:47 EDT

As Braves catcher Tyler Flowers sat behind the plate for Bartolo Colon's start against the Phillies on Friday night, he certainly wasn't reminded of any of those days when he was with the White Sox serving as Chris Sale's batterymate.



Jackson slugs sixth homer for Fire Frogs

Sun, 23 Apr 2017 01:01:33 EDT

Clint Frazier has had Yankees fans abuzz since New York traded for him last July, but he hadn't gotten off to the hottest start to the 2017 season at the plate. As of Saturday, that looks like it might be changing.



Braves hope offense clicks to join Freeman

Sat, 22 Apr 2017 00:01:43 EDT

As Freddie Freeman continues to produced incredible statistics through this season's first three weeks, the potential value of his contributions has been diminished by the lack of consistent production created within the first two spots of the Braves' lineup.
