  • Braves' Touki Toussaint: Sent to Triple-A

    Toussaint (personal) was activated from the bereavement list Sunday and optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Toussaint spent the past few days on the bereavement list following the death of his father, and he'll now make his way to the minors. The 25-year-old has made 10 starts for Atlanta this season but was shifted to the bullpen just before being placed on the bereavement list.

  • Braves' Touki Toussaint: Placed on bereavement list

    Toussaint was placed on the bereavement list Wednesday.

    Toussaint has recently shifted to a bullpen role, and he'll now miss between three and seven games following his placement on the bereavement list due to the recent passing of his father. The team will likely have another bullpen game against the Padres on Sunday, when the fifth spot in Atlanta's rotation comes up again.

  • Braves' Touki Toussaint: Working out of bullpen

    Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said Toussaint will be available out of the bullpen behind opening pitcher Jesse Chavez in Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Snitker didn't explicitly say that Toussaint lost his rotation spot, but that appears to be the implication, given that he hasn't pitched since being tagged for four runs on five hits and three walks in four innings in his last start Sept. 14 versus the Rockies. Toussaint won't necessarily work as a primary pitcher behind Chavez either, as Snitker termed Tuesday's contest as a bullpen day since Atlanta will have its full complement of relievers available. Atlanta will have a need for a fifth starter again Sunday in San Diego, but the early expectation is that the team will get by with another bullpen game rather than reinserting Toussaint into the rotation.

  • Braves' Touki Toussaint: Ineffective once again Tuesday

    Toussaint (3-3) allowed four runs on five hits and three walks while striking out five over four innings to take a loss to the Rockies on Tuesday.

    Toussaint pitched a clean first but had some trouble in the second. He started off the inning by allowing a solo home run to Trevor Story and surrendered one more run on a walk and a pair of base hits. The 25-year-old righty later allowed another homer, this time a two-run blast by Brendan Rodgers to put the Rockies up 4-2 in the fifth. Toussaint's day ended there and Atlanta was unable to mount the comeback. The 2014 first-round pick hasn't pitched more than four innings in either of his last three starts and has given up exactly four earned runs in two of those three outings. He now sits at a 4.50 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 48:22 K:BB over 50 innings this year. He's in line for a tough road matchup against the Giants at the end of the week.

  • Braves' Touki Toussaint: Struggles with free passes

    Toussaint allowed two runs (one earned) on one hit and four walks in three innings of a no-decision against Washington on Wednesday. He also hit a batter and had three strikeouts.

    That's two straight starts in which Toussaint has lasted only three innings. His four walks Wednesday were a season high, and he managed to throw just 29 of his 62 pitches for strikes. Toussaint was lifted in the fourth inning after giving up a Josh Bell homer and a pair of walks without recording an out. The 25-year-old Toussaint will try to get back on track next week with an appealing home matchup against the Rockies.

  • Braves' Touki Toussaint: Lasts three innings Thursday

    Toussaint didn't factor into the decision Thursday against the Rockies after allowing five runs (four earned) on six hits across three innings. He didn't strike out or walk anyone and also hit a batter.

    Toussaint got a chance to return to the rotation, but this outing wasn't a positive one by any means, as the five runs he allowed represent his second-worst mark of the season as he also provided one of his shortest outings of the campaign. As a result, his ERA jumped from 3.60 to 4.19 following this appearance.

  • Braves' Touki Toussaint: Tabbed to start Thursday

    Toussaint will start Thursday's series opener at Colorado, Mark Bowman of reports.

    Manager Brian Snitker indicated earlier in the week Toussaint may rejoin the rotation in the coming days, and he'll do so Thursday against the Rockies. The right-hander has pitched well since joining the big-league club after the All-Star break with a 3.60 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 40:15 K:BB across 40 innings.

  • Braves' Touki Toussaint: May re-enter rotation in Colorado

    Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said Toussaint could re-enter the rotation later this week to make a start during the team's four-game series in Colorado that begins Thursday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    After Ian Anderson returned from the injured Sunday to give Atlanta five healthy starters, Toussaint made an appearance out of the bullpen in that contest, tossing a scoreless inning. While Snitker has yet to formally commit to Toussaint rejoining the rotation, those odds appeared to increase after Monday's loss to the Dodgers, when the struggling Drew Smyly served up four home runs. Even if Toussaint doesn't displace Smyly as the team's fifth starter, his solid work of late has left Snitker to contemplate expanding the rotation to six men. Before his cameo out of the bullpen last weekend, Toussaint had submitted a 2.86 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 20:10 K:BB in 22 innings over his most recent four starts.

  • Braves' Touki Toussaint: Picks up third win

    Toussaint (3-2) allowed a run on five hits and three walks while striking out five in 5.1 innings to earn the win over the Orioles on Sunday.

    Although Toussaint gave up seven runs in his final start in July, he's been much more effective across four outings in August. He's lasted at least five innings in each of his last four starts and has picked up back-to-back wins. Since the start of August, the 25-year-old has recorded a 2.86 ERA and 1.23 WHIP in 22 innings. Since Ian Anderson (shoulder) will likely return next weekend, it's not yet clear whether Toussaint will remain in the rotation.

  • Braves' Touki Toussaint: Fans seven in second win

    Toussaint (2-2) picked up the win in Monday's 12-2 rout of the Marlins, allowing two runs on three hits and two walks over 6.1 innings. He struck out seven.

    Both runs came on early solo shots by Jazz Chisholm and Isan Diaz, but Toussaint steadied the ship before Atlanta seized control of the game with a seven-run fourth inning. The quality start was the third in six outings for the right-hander since he joined the rotation after the All-Star break, and Toussaint will carry a 4.01 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 35:11 K:BB through 33.2 innings into his next start.

  • Braves' Touki Toussaint: Allows two runs in no-decision

    Toussaint hurled five innings against Cincinnati on Wednesday, allowing two runs on four hits and three walks while striking out five. He did not factor in the decision.

    The right-hander breezed through five scoreless frames, but he struggled in the sixth, giving up a two-run homer to Joey Votto and exiting the contest when Mike Moustakas followed with a single. Though he was in line to win upon his departure, the Reds tallied three runs between the eighth and ninth innings to send the game into extra frames and remove Toussaint from a decision. Toussaint's role in the rotation moving forward is uncertain given the imminent return of Huascar Ynoa (hand), though the Braves could opt to go to a six-man rotation to allow both hurlers to keep a starting role.

  • Braves' Touki Toussaint: Decent versus Cards

    Toussaint got a no-decision in Thursday's 8-4 win over St. Louis, allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits and two walks with three strikeouts in 5.1 innings.

    Making his fourth start of the season, Toussaint was adequate in limiting St. Louis' bats until Atlanta broke out with a six-run eighth. The 25-year-old allowed two runs on four baserunners in the third and another run came across in the sixth on a passed ball. It was a nice rebound from a poor outing against Milwaukee last time out. Toussaint has now permitted two runs or fewer in three of four starts.

  • Braves' Touki Toussaint: Ineffective versus Milwaukee

    Toussaint (1-2) allowed seven runs on six hits and two walks with five strikeouts across 3.1 innings, taking the loss versus Milwaukee on Friday.

    The right-hander was spotted a four-run lead after one inning, but he gave it all back in the third and continued to struggle in the fourth before Sean Newcomb relieved him. Toussaint had pitched well in his first two starts of the season, but Friday's outing was a disaster. He's yielded nine runs in 17 innings with a 20:4 K:BB, and he tentatively lines up to face St. Louis on the road next week.

  • Braves' Touki Toussaint: Charged with unlucky loss

    Toussaint (1-1) allowed one run on five hits and no walks while striking out 10 in seven innings to take the loss against the Phillies on Sunday.

    Toussaint recorded double-digit strikeouts for the first time in his career Sunday, and he's allowed just one run in 13.2 innings across his first two starts in 2021. However, Atlanta struggled to generate much offensive production in the series finale, and the right-hander was forced to settle for the loss. Toussaint had slightly better command in Sunday's appearance, as he threw 64 of his 90 pitches for strikes. He tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Brewers on Friday.
