News
Thanks to a strong start to the season, teams have begun to eye Braves starting pitcher Shelby Miller as a potential trade target, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

However, Heyman writes it is hard to see the Braves moving Miller since he is still under team control through 2018.

The right-hander, who was acquired in an offseason trade with St. Louis, is coming off a two-hit shutout against the Marlins. He is 5-1 with a 1.33 ERA through eight starts.

News
Coming off a poor start Tuesday, Braves pitcher Mike Foltynewicz spoke after the game about why he struggled to put the Rays away in a difficult fifth inning.

"I kind of started to overthrow stuff and trying to make things break a little more than I wanted to," he told mlblogs.com.

Foltynewicz struck out the first two batters in the inning before allowing a walk, single and double that turned a 3-3 tie into a 5-3 deficit.

The good news is that he is making hitters flail at air more frequently recently despite greater overall struggles. His swing-and-miss rate of 13.2 and 13.5 in his last two starts is far superior to what he achieved in his first two starts. Only four pitchers in the major leagues boast a better one than 13.5 this season.

Braves reliever Jason Grilli earned his 12th save of the season during Wednesday night's 2-1 victory over the Rays. 

Grilli entered the game in the ninth inning and only allowed one hit. This was an improvement after giving up an earned run in three of his last four games. He now has a 4.73 ERA for the season. 

It's the third appearance in a row that Grilli has been able to record a save.

Braves catcher A.J. Pierzynski and left fielder Todd Cunningham are getting a rest and are being held out of the lineup on Thursday against the Brewers. 

Pierzynski had been behind the plate each of the last four games, but has struggled with the bat. He's hitting .185 (5 for 27) over his last seven games. He'll cede Thursday's start to rookie Christian Bethancourt.

Cunningham has been on a tear since being called up last week. In his first five games this season, the 26-year-old rookie is 9 for 19 with a pair of doubles. Nevertheless, he'll sit on Thursday with Jonny Gomes making the start in left while batting fifth.

Braves center fielder Cameron Maybin batted second for the first time this season on Thursday, going 1 for 4 with a walk, two RBI, three runs scored and a stolen base in his team's 10-1 win over the Brewers.

"It was cool, man," Maybin said of hitting second after the game, per MLB.com. "I didn't really change my approach, tried to keep the same approach -- be a tough out, get a good pitch to hit and just make sure I'm on base, somehow, someway. Whenever I can do that good things happen, and good things happened tonight."

Maybin has excelled since taking over the full-time starting role in center field on May 2, going 17 for 54 with nine runs and 21 RBI.

"My confidence is high," Maybin said. "I've been able to put in some really good work with [hitting coach Kevin Seitzer] in the cage. And every day is a competition. Every day I feel like you have to fight to keep the job, win the job. So my mentality is to come out and go hard everyday and things will work out."

Maybin has hit .255/.352/.426 with four home runs, 17 RBI and five stolen bases in 94 at-bats.

Braves infielder Pedro Ciriaco is in the starting lineup for the second time this season, as he will be the starting third baseman on Tuesday against the Rays. Ciriaco started Sunday's game at shortstop, but will slide over to the hot corner with Phil Gosselin lost for at least two months with a thumb injury.

The light-hitting Ciriaco is batting second in the order on Tuesday. He does have three hits in seven at-bats this season, with all of them going for extra bases (two doubles and a triple).

News
Braves third baseman Chris Johnson, who has been on the disabled list with a hand injury, could rejoin his teammates as early as next Thursday in San Francisco, per the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Johnson has been sidelined for just over three weeks after sustaining a fracture and bone bruises in his left hand. He is slated for five at-bats in an extended spring training game Friday before taking batting practice Saturday and Sunday with the Braves.

When he returns, he will do so on a 6-for-31 slide that lowered his batting average from .500 to .279.

News
Braves pitcher Williams Perez allowed just one earned run in a no-decision during Wednesday night's 2-1 win over the Rays. 

This was Perez's first start of the season as he replaced Eric Stults in the rotation. He went five innings, struck out seven batters and gave up six hits. He walked just one batter. 

"[Perez] pitches with his eyes a little bit," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said, via MLB.com. "He knows what kind of swings [hitters] are taking at his pitches and he makes adjustments and he competes."

This was a particularly strong effort from Perez, who had only appeared in two prior games this season. Ater a horrid appearance against the Nationals on May 8, Perez had a better showing in two innings on May 13 against the Reds. 

His performance on Wednesday will likely keep him in the rotation for now. Getting the win for the Braves was Brandon Cuniff, who entered the game in the seventh inning. 

Perez's next start is projected for May 25 against the Dodgers.

Stults has given up 12 runs in his last two starts and he has not pitched past the seventh inning in any of his eight starts this season. Stults started in place of Alex Wood, who was scratched due to an illness.

Braves pitcher Julio Teheran earned a win on Thursday, allowing one earned run on just two hits and one walk in seven innings while striking out eight in his team's 10-1 victory over the Brewers.

"He had command of all his pitches," manager Fredi Gonzalez said after the game, per MLB.com. "He kept them off-balance and made some pitches when he had to."

Teheran (4-1) gave up a run on a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning but was brilliant on Thursday to earn just his second win in his last seven starts. He was in danger of missing out on the win as the score remained tied heading into the bottom of the seventh, but the Braves were able to explode for seven runs to put the game out of reach.

"I've been working to get back on track and it showed today that I've been working really good, trying to get my fastball, trying to get all my pitches for strikes and that's something that will get some wins for us," Teheran said.

Teheran owns a 3.91 ERA and 47:19 K:BB ratio in 50 2/3 innings. He's on track to face the Dodgers in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

The hot streak that sent the numbers soaring for Braves second baseman Jace Peterson is decidedly over.

Peterson went on a 20-for-51 tear in late April and early May to catapult his average from .171 to .293 and increase his on-base percentage to .362. He has not gone into a slump, but he has certainly cooled off. Peterson has just five hits in 27 at-bats since.

His slash line is now at .269/.346/.328.
