      Braves' Mike Foltynewicz: Could begin season on DL

      Foltynewicz (illness) could begin the season on the disabled list, MLB.com reports. A blood clot in his right arm gave Foltynewicz a major scare at the end of last season -- doctors said it was life-threatening -- and forced him to undergo surgery in September to remove the anterior half of his first rib. Fortunately, the 24-year-old was said to be looking good physically and emotionally as he played long toss at Turner Field on Monday, but he will be a couple weeks behind schedule when spring training begins later this month. Down approximately 15 pounds from a season ago, Foltynewicz seems to have the floor of a late-inning reliever, but the rebuilding Braves could give him another chance in the rotation once he's back to full strength.

      Braves' Mike Foltynewicz has successful surgery, season likely over

      Braves pitcher Mike Foltynewicz (blood clots) had successful surgery Monday to remove the anterior half of his first rib. The rookie hurler was hospitalized with blood clots in his arm over the weekend. The whole situation sounds a lot like thoracic outlet syndrome, a condition that has significantly impacted the careers of a number of MLB pitchers, including Chris Carpenter, Josh Beckett and Jaime Garcia. The Braves indicated that Foltynewicz will be released from the hospital Thursday and will be on blood thinners for at least six weeks. His season is certainly over at this point.

Foltynewicz was believed to be dealing with an illness of some kind, and now it appears a blood clot may have been the cause. Fortunately, the issue was caught, which should prevent it from causing too much damage, but it seems unlikely he'll pitch again this season.

      Braves' sloppy defense leads to loss for Mike Foltynewicz

      Braves rookie starter Mike Foltynewicz was let down by the defense behind him on Tuesday, as the Braves fell to the Rockies 5-1. The young left-hander went five innings, with all four runs he allowed coming unearned due to a trio of fielding errors. Foltynewicz (4-6, 5.71 ERA) allowed two runs in the first and two more in the fourth. Despite not allowing an earned run on Tuesday, the 23-year-old has been roughed up over the last month. He has given up four runs or more in four of his last five starts.

      Braves' Mike Foltynewicz gets lit up by Cubs on Thursday

      Braves rookie starter Mike Foltynewicz got rocked in his outing against the Cubs on Thursday. The young right-hander gave up a career-high seven runs on eight hits over 4 2/3 innings in the 7-1 loss. He did strike out six, but that only helped inflate his pitch count to 97 on the night. Foltynewicz (4-5, 6.05 ERA) was able to keep the Cubs off the board over the first two frames. But he fell apart in the third, when he allowed four runs, including a three-run blast by Anthony Rizzo. He allowed another run in the fourth--a solo shot by Addison Russell. Instead of making a change, manager Fredi Gonzalez stayed with his youngster. That didn't work out however, as he allowed two more runs to score in the fifth inning before finally getting pulled from the game. Foltynewicz has struggled over his past five starts, going 1-3 with a hefty 7.67 ERA over that stretch.
