Schafer came into play Tuesday batting .231 (3 for 13) with two RBI and five strikeouts in 12 June games (one start).
The left-hander lasted only three innings, allowing one run on two hits and three walks during a 4-3 loss. Wood (0-1) struck out five, but he was plagued by a high pitch count and a callous on his left hand. Wood needed 73 pitches (38 strikes) to make it through three innings. A callous plit on his index finger, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Wood said he could have kept pitching, but manager Fredi Gonzalez said he pulled him because of the combination of high pitch count and the finger issue.
Wood was just a spot starter because of the doubleheader and is headed back to the bullpen.
I understand that in smaller mixed leagues where each team starts just one catcher, the
I understand why his owner might cut him. With his ever-changing role, he's been the embodiment of uncertainty this season, and his oblique injury might just be the straw that breaks the camel's back. But we've already seen that he's perfectly capable of maintaining big power numbers even with sporadic at-bats. They might even help him, to some degree. His home runs often come in bunches after a few days off.
And who knows? While he's on the DL, the Braves may lose someone else to injury. Brian McCann, Freddie Freeman or anyone in the outfield would free up regular at-bats for Gattis. With the power he offers at a weak position, grabbing him now may prove to be the smartest decision you make all season.
"It just grabbed me on my right side," Gattis said Tuesday, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "I didn’t think I could hit again. Catching, I was loose, warming, and (had) adrenaline going."
Gattis, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, hopes to be back in a few weeks.
"I hope to do whatever I can to get out there as soon as I can," he said.
Hudson is 0-5 with a 4.47 ERA in his last eight starts. He has allowed one run in three of his last four starts and has pitched at least seven innings in four straight starts.
"I feel good about how I'm throwing the ball," Hudson said, per MLB.com. "If I keep throwing it the way I'm throwing, the wins will come. I feel like our team has been playing pretty well. I just happened to be out there on the mound when the other pitcher is throwing a pretty good game."
