News
Braves starter Mike Minor had major problems Sunday in Texas. He surrendered five runs on eight hits in 4 2/3 innings to lower his record to 6-11 as the playoff chances of his team continued to dwindle.

Minor was hanging in there until a brutal fifth inning in which he allowed three singles, two doubles, one walk and six runs - all after retiring the first two batters. He finished with three walks and one strikeout. Minor, who was coming off six straight quality starts, will try to turn it around Saturday against the Mets.

Over his last three starts covering 17 innings, Santana has allowed 11 earned runs. He owns a 3.74 ERA and a 1.28 WHIP over 29 starts (185 1/3 innings). His next start will come Sunday at home against the Mets.

News
Just before the All-Star break, Jason Heyward started to pick up his batting average, and he hasn't really cooled off since. Over his last 54 games, Heyward is batting .329 with a .387 on-base percentage. Sadly for his Fantasy owners, it's come with very little power.

While Heyward has hit 12 doubles and a triple over that span, he has launched only three home runs. Given that the Braves' outfielder has been an inconsistent power hitter over his five years in the majors, it's reasonable for owners to start wondering if that consistency is ever going to materialize.

In my latest blog post, I have taken a look at Heyward's offensive trends this season to get an early read on what sort of value he will have next season. His ability to make contact (32 strikeouts over his last 207 at-bats) and steal make him a must-start option right now, but given his lack of power, Heyward will be something less than an early-round option in 2015.

News
Braves catcher Evan Gattis has missed the last eight days due to strep throat, and the team is unsure of when he'll be able to return, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

"I really don’t know," manager Fredi Gonzalez said Tuesday. "We will let the doctors and people who are looking at him decide when, where. But hopefully (it’s) soon."

Gattis started to feel sick on Sept. 7, and although the team reported last Wednesday that he was feeling better, he hasn't seen any action since the first day of his sickness. Gattis has hit .270/.325/.507 with 22 home runs and 52 RBI in 359 at-bats.

News
Braves pitcher Aaron Harang took a loss Tuesday, giving up two earned runs on five hits and two walks in seven innings while striking out eight in his team's 3-0 defeat against the Nationals.

Harang (11-11) delivered five scoreless innings before serving up a two-run home run in the sixth, and it would be all the scoring the Nationals would need to win the game and clinch the NL East title. Harang owns a 3.68 ERA and 149:67 K:BB ratio in 190 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Pirates Monday.

News
Braves pitcher Julio Teheran picked up a complete-game loss Saturday, giving up three unearned runs on three hits and one walk in eight innings while striking out six in his team's 3-2 defeat against the Rangers.

Teheran (13-12) took a no-hitter into the sixth inning but saw the frame extended by an error with two outs, and the Rangers pushed three runs across the late in that same inning to take the lead. Teheran owns a 2.89 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 174:48 K:BB ratio in 209 innings. He's scheduled to face the Mets Friday.
