Braves' Dylan Dodd: Hit hard in finale
Dodd (2-2) allowed five runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out one over six innings Sunday against the Nationals. He did not factor into the decision.
Dodd gave up a four-spot to the Nationals in the first inning and then allowed another run to score in the second. He was able to settle in the rest of the way, allowing three hits over the next four innings and exiting with the game tied at 5-5. It was just the second time he's lasted six innings this year and it was the fourth straight start he allowed at least four runs. The 25-year-old finishes the year with a 7.60 ERA, 1.89 WHIP and 15:12 K:BB over 34.1 innings (seven starts) and should be expected to begin next season at Triple-A Gwinnett.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Dylan Dodd: Promoted for Sunday's start
Dodd was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett to start Sunday's regular-season finale against the Nationals, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
The 25-year-old was previously announced as Atlanta's probable starter for Sunday, and he's now officially been added to the MLB roster. Dodd has a 7.62 ERA, 1.94 WHIP and 14:11 K:BB across 28.1 innings (six starts) this season, but he'll receive a chance to end the campaign on a positive note with game No. 162 being meaningless for Atlanta....

Braves' Dylan Dodd: Starting Sunday
Dodd will be recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett to start Sunday's game against the Nationals, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
Dodd's last big-league start dates back to Sept. 9 against the Pirates, when he surrendered four runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out two across four innings. He'll be tasked with eating innings for Atlanta with little left to play for before the postseason begins.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Dylan Dodd: Sent to Triple-A
Dodd was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday.
Dodd made his first big-league start since June versus the Pirates on Saturday, but he'll return to Triple-A after he surrendered four runs on seven hits and three walks over four innings. The left-hander has a 7.62 ERA and 14:11 K:BB across 28.1 frames in the majors this season, so he likely won't be atop the list of candidates should Atlanta need another spot starter down the stretch....

Braves' Dylan Dodd: Struggles versus Pittsburgh
Dodd (2-2) allowed four runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out two over four-plus innings to take the loss Saturday versus the Pirates.
Dodd's first major-league outing since June 14 didn't go very well. He ran into trouble in the third inning when the Pirates rallied for three runs, and more issues emerged before he got a quick hook in the fifth. The rookie left-hander has a 7.62 ERA, 1.94 WHIP and 14:11 K:BB over 28.1 innings across six starts. Darius Vines allowed one run over three innings in a relief assignment Saturday, so it's unclear if Dodd will be in the mix for any starts beyond this one, especially if Kyle Wright (shoulder) is activated next week....

Braves' Dylan Dodd: Will get start Saturday
Dodd will be called up from Triple-A Gwinnett to start Saturday in Atlanta against the Pirates, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
Dodd made the Opening Day rotation, but he has posted an ugly 7.40 ERA in five major-league starts (24.1 innings) and a 6.55 ERA in 69.1 innings at Triple-A. The 25-year-old is a risky fantasy streaming option, even versus a Pittsburgh offense that ranks 27th in wRC+ against southpaws.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Dylan Dodd: Comes off Triple-A IL
Dodd (undisclosed) was reinstated from Triple-A Gwinnett's 7-day injured list Wednesday and returned to the rotation Thursday, covering three innings and allowing three runs on five hits and two walks in a no-decision versus Indianapolis. He struck out one batter in the 59-pitch outing.
Dodd was making his first appearance for Gwinnett since June 22 after missing nearly six weeks due to the unspecified injury. The 26-year-old southpaw has previously made six starts for Atlanta this season, but after compiling an 8.02 ERA and 1.90 WHIP in 42.2 innings through his 10 outings with Gwinnett, he's unlikely to receive another promotion anytime soon....

Braves' Dylan Dodd: Starts up rehab assignment
Dodd (undisclosed) began a rehab assignment last Thursday with Atlanta's rookie-level Florida Complex League affiliate, striking out four over 3.1 perfect innings.
Dodd's appearance in the FCL was his first at any level since June 22. He landed on Triple-A Gwinnett's 7-day injured list shortly after that outing, but based on his performance Thursday, Dodd likely isn't far away from rejoining Gwinnett's rotation. Dodd previously made five starts with Atlanta earlier in the season, but even once healthy, the lefty could find himself behind all of AJ Smith-Shawver, Michael Soroka, Allan Winans and Jared Shuster for a promotion if the big club requires another starter at any point....

Braves' Dylan Dodd: Shelved at Triple-A
Triple-A Gwinnett placed Dodd on its 7-day injured list June 24 with an unspecified injury.
Dodd was included in Atlanta's season-opening rotation and made spot starts with the big club on three other occasions in May and June before being optioned to Gwinnett. Following his most recent demotion, Dodd was roughed up for eight runs (seven earned) on 10 hits and two walks over four innings in his lone start with Gwinnett on June 22 before he was deactivated two days later. Atlanta hasn't provided any details regarding the nature of Dodd's injury or when he might be ready to return.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Dylan Dodd: Back in minors
Atlanta returned Dodd to Triple-A Gwinnett following Wednesday's doubleheader with the Tigers.
Dodd was called up Wednesday to start Game 2 and ended up allowing all five of Detroit's runs across four innings in a 6-5 Atlanta win. The 25-year-old lefty now holds a 7.40 ERA in the majors across 24.1 innings and will return to Triple-A where his numbers aren't much better (7.07 ERA and 1.73 WHIP through 35.2 innings)....

Braves' Dylan Dodd: Called up, starting Game 2
Atlanta called up Dodd from Triple-A Gwinnett, and he's scheduled to start the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Tigers.
Dodd will operate as Atlanta's 27th man for the doubleheader and draw his fifth major-league start of the season. To this point, the left-hander has posted a 6.64 ERA and 1.77 WHIP with 10 strikeouts over 20.1 innings with Atlanta. His Triple-A numbers are actually less impressively, as he owns a 7.07 ERA over 35.2 frames in eight outings with Gwinnett. Dodd will be returned to Triple-A following Wednesday's spot start....

Braves' Dylan Dodd: Optioned to Triple-A
Dodd was sent down to Triple-A Gwinnett on Saturday.
Dodd will return to Gwinnett after being recalled for Thursday's start, during which he allowed four runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out three batters over five innings in a no-decision versus the Phillies. The decision to return the left-hander to Triple-A suggests that Michael Soroka is set to make his season debut with Atlanta, though nothing official has been announced.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Dylan Dodd: Yields four runs over five frames
Dodd pitched five innings in a no-decision against Philadelphia on Thursday, allowing four runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out three batters.
Dodd was recalled from Triple-A prior to the game and gave Atlanta five innings, but he wasn't particularly sharp. The rookie surrendered three runs in the second inning and another in the fifth, and he served up two homers among the seven hits he allowed. Dodd also continued to post subpar strikeout numbers -- with his three punchouts Thursday, he's struck out just 10 batters over 20.1 innings as a big-leaguer. On the plus side, the southpaw at least managed to keep Atlanta in the game, which may be enough to earn him another turn in the rotation, though it's also possible that Michael Soroka is called up to make his first major-league start since 2020....

Braves' Dylan Dodd: Recalled for Thursday's start
Atlanta recalled Dodd from Triple-A Gwinnett ahead of his scheduled start Thursday against the Phillies.
Dodd will get another opportunity to work out of Atlanta's rotation despite struggling to a 6.46 ERA through his first 15.1 major-league innings (three starts) this season. He's also been roughed up at times in Triple-A. The 24-year-old southpaw seems like an iffy fantasy streaming bet, even on Thursday's lighter slate.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Dylan Dodd: Promotion imminent
Dodd will be recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday to start against the Phillies in Atlanta later that day, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Dodd holds a 6.46 ERA and 1.83 WHIP in the majors this season through 15.1 innings across three starts. His Triple-A numbers are similar, but he is coming off a four-inning shutout performance in his last minor-league start. Dodd is still in the process of proving he belongs in the big leagues....
