      Braves' Mike Foltynewicz: Completes rehab start

      Mike Foltynewicz (elbow) allowed six earned runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out two across 5.1 innings in a rehab start against Triple-A Durham on Sunday. He was sitting 93 mph with his fastball and had both his slider and curveball working, Kyle Glaser of Baseball America reports.Foltynewicz's numbers weren't strong, but he was hit hard in the early going while he struggled to get the feel for his secondary pitches. However, his slider improved as the game went on and he threw a total of 89 pitches, both good signs for his return. Based on this outing, Foltynewicz could rejoin the rotation later this week.

      Mike Foltynewicz (elbow) gave up two runs on four hits and a walk over 3.2 innings while striking out five for Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday, throwing 61 pitches (43 strikes), Manny Randhawa of MLB.com reports.A rain delay interrupted the rehab outing, and Foltynewicz threw another dozen pitches in the bullpen during the delay to reach the pitch count the Atlanta Braves were targeting for him. "He felt good, that's the big thing," manager Brian Snitker said. "We'll see how he feels [Wednesday], and reevaluate then. ... Until he comes in the next day, and nothing developed or he feels OK, then we kind of get a better read on where they're at and make sure everything is OK." Snitker fell short of saying the right-hander's next start would come in the majors, but if Foltynewicz checks out Wednesday, his activation from the IL seems imminent.
