Aaron Harang pegged with tough-luck loss
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Braves pitcher Aaron Harang pitched well but wasn't backed by any run support Monday night against the Pirates, dropping to 11-12 on the year. He allowed one run on four hits and two walks while striking out seven over seven innings of a 1-0 defeat.

Over his last three starts covering 21 innings, Harang has allowed three earned runs. He owns a 3.60 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP over 32 starts (197 2/3 innings). His final start of the season will come Saturday in Philadelphia.

Jason Heyward misses another start
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

Jason Heyward was not in the Braves' starting lineup for Monday's game against the Pirates, as Emilio Bonifacio got the start in right field. Heyward did not play at all during the Braves' three-game weekend series against the Mets due to a thumb injury. He remains day to day.

Evan Gattis hopes to catch this week
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Evan Gattis is aiming to return to catching for the Braves sometime before the end of the season. Gattis made an appearance as a pinch-hitter in Saturday's game against the Mets, but he has not played defensively since Sept. 7.

Gattis has been out the last two weeks with strep throat and a kidney stone. He was not in the Braves' starting lineup for Monday's series opener against the Pirates.

Frank Wren fired as general manager
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Braves fired general manager Frank Wren Monday, bringing to fruition weeks of speculation with the team's second September collapse in three seasons.

Special advisor John Hart, former GM of the Indians and Rangers, inherits the position on an interim basis. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, he isn't believed to have interest in returning to the role full-time. Braves president and former general manager John Schuerholz, former manager Bobby Cox and Hart will conduct the search for a long-term replacement.

Fredi Gonzalez will remain manager of the team for now.
