  • Braves' Dylan Lee: Doing flat-ground throwing

    Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said Tuesday that Lee (shoulder) is still limited to flat-ground throwing, Mark Bowman of reports.

    Lee was placed on the injured list in mid-May because of inflammation in his left shoulder and he's not yet ready to take the next step forward in his throwing progression. There won't be a clear timeline for his return to the major-league roster until he begins doing some mound work.

  • Braves' Dylan Lee: Placed on 15-day IL

    Atlanta placed Lee on the 15-day injured list Friday, retroactive to May 17, with left shoulder inflammation.

    Lee struggled in his last appearance Tuesday versus the Rangers, yielding three runs -- two earned -- on six hits and one walk over just 1.1 innings of work. There is no timeline yet for the 28-year-old reliever's return.

  • Braves' Dylan Lee: Solid work as opener

    Lee allowed a walk and struck out three over 2.2 scoreless and hitless innings versus the Red Sox on Wednesday. He did not factor in the decision.

    Lee covered the most innings of the eight pitchers Atlanta used in what ended up being a bullpen game. The 28-year-old hadn't started a game at any level since 2017, so it's unlikely he's a long-term solution for Atlanta's battered rotation, which will be missing Max Fried (forearm) and Kyle Wright (shoulder) for at least two more months. Lee has a 2.41 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 22:6 K:BB over 18.2 innings this season, and he'll likely continue to serve in a versatile role out of the bullpen, though it's also possible he could be tabbed as an opener again on occasion.

  • Braves' Dylan Lee: Working as opener Wednesday

    Lee will serve as Atlanta's opening pitcher for Wednesday's game against the Red Sox, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Lee will pitch the first inning or two for Atlanta as the club navigates its first turn through the rotation without Max Fried (forearm), who was placed on the 15-day injured list Tuesday. In 17 appearances thus far, Lee has pitched well with a 2.81 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 19:5 K:BB over 16 innings. Atlanta doesn't have a clear designated bulk reliever to work behind Lee, but Collin McHugh and Michael Tonkin should both be able to give the club multiple innings, if necessary.

  • Braves' Dylan Lee: Locked in this spring

    Lee gave up a hit and struck out two over a scoreless ninth inning during Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Twins.

    The 28-year-old is coming off an impressive 2022 campaign in the Atlanta bullpen, and Lee has carried that forward into the spring with an 8:0 K:BB through 5.1 scoreless innings. He's still the team's No. 2 left-handed relief option after A.J. Minter, which could limit him to middle relief rather than a consistent set-up role, but after recording nine holds in 46 appearances last year, Lee seems a pretty safe bet to at least reach double digits in 2023.

  • Braves' Dylan Lee: Collects seventh hold

    Lee gave up a run in two-thirds of an inning while walking one and striking out one to record his seventh hold of the season in a 3-1 loss to the Phillies.

    The 28-year-old southpaw finished up the seventh inning for starter Charlie Morton to protect a 1-0 lead but then got the hook after issuing a one-out walk to Rhys Hoskins in the eighth, only to see Collin McHugh fall apart and let Hoskins plus two more Phillies cross the plate. The deadline trade of Will Smith did move Lee up slightly in the pecking order when it comes to lefties in the Atlanta bullpen, but he remains firmly behind A.J. Minter (18 holds) when it comes to high-leverage duty despite Lee's impressive 1.61 ERA, 0.82 WHIP and 31:4 K:BB through 28 innings on the year.

  • Braves' Dylan Lee: Tallies third hold

    Lee gave up a hit and struck out one in two-thirds of an inning in Sunday's extra-innings loss to the Dodgers.

    The left-hander took over for Spencer Strider to begin the seventh inning and retired the first two batters he faced before giving up a single to Chris Taylor and getting the hook. Lee remains third in the pecking order among southpaws in the Atlanta bullpen behind Will Smith and A.J. Minter, but that hasn't stopped him from posting a 0.59 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 13:2 K:BB through 15.1 innings over 11 appearances since rejoining the big-league roster in late May.

  • Braves' Dylan Lee: Recalled from Triple-A

    Lee was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday.

    The reliever will join the big-league club for the second time this season after failing to enter a game during his first stint in April. Lee has pitched 14.1 innings with a 2.51 ERA and 1.13 WHIP while striking out 23 batters over 13 appearances with Triple-A Gwinnett this season. To make space on the active roster, Tyler Thornburg was designated for assignment Monday.

  • Braves' Dylan Lee: Sent to Triple-A

    Lee was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday.

    He was promoted Tuesday as bullpen depth and didn't get in a game before heading back to the minors.

  • Braves' Dylan Lee: Jumps to big leagues

    Atlanta recalled Lee from Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday.

    In order to open up a spot for the left-handed Lee, Atlanta designated southpaw Sean Newcomb for assignment. Lee appeared in just two regular-season games for Atlanta in 2021, but he made three appearances in the playoffs during the club's run to the World Series crown last fall. He'll likely see most of his usage out of the bullpen in lower-leverage spots as he makes his return to the 28-man active roster.

  • Braves' Dylan Lee: Fails to win roster spot

    Lee was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Lee made his big-league debut last season but threw just two innings, so he was likely always a long shot to break camp with the team. His excellent 54:6 K:BB and 1.54 ERA in 46.2 innings for Gwinnett last season means he should be one of Atlanta's top options whenever they need another lefty in the bullpen.

  • Braves' Dylan Lee: Starting World Series Game 4

    Lee will start Game 4 of the World Series against the Astros on Saturday.

    Manager Brian Snitker had previously indicated the team would go with an opener in Game 4 with a 2-1 series lead, but that opener was a mystery until Saturday afternoon. It will be Lee, who has made two appearances so far this postseason, allowing three hits -- including a homer -- over 2.2 innings. Lee spent most of the year at Triple-A, not debuting for the big-league team until the final days of the regular season.

  • Braves' Dylan Lee: Joins NLCS roster

    Lee was added to Atlanta's NLCS roster Wednesday, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    The 27-year-old wasn't included on the initial roster for the NLCS, but he'll join the bullpen mix with Huascar Ynoa (shoulder) going down with an injury. Lee made his big-league debut during the final weekend of the regular season, and he spent the rest of the year at Triple-A Gwinnett, where he posted a 1.54 ERA, 0.76 WHIP and 54:6 K:BB across 46.2 innings.

  • Braves' Dylan Lee: Returns to majors

    Lee was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday.

    The 27-year-old was sent to Triple-A last weekend but will quickly rejoin the big-league club with Edgar Santana (ribs) heading to the injured list. Lee has a 1.54 EA, 0.76 WHIP and 54:6 K:BB over 46.2 innings for Gwinnett this season, and he's looking to make his MLB debut.

  • Braves' Dylan Lee: Sent to Triple-A

    Lee was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Saturday.

    He got his first big-league call-up Wednesday but never made it into a game. Edgar Santana was activated from the paternity list in a corresponding move.

  • Braves' Dylan Lee: Gets first call-up

    Atlanta selected Lee's contract from Triple-A Gwinnett ahead of Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks.

    He'll assume the active roster spot of fellow reliever Edgar Santana, who was placed on the paternity list in a corresponding move. After Atlanta used six relievers to cover nine frames in a bullpen game in Tuesday's 6-1 win, Lee could be needed to eat innings in Wednesday's series finale if starter Ian Anderson is knocked out of the contest early. Over 45.2 innings at Triple-A this season, the 27-year-old lefty has posted a 1.58 ERA, 0.77 WHIP and 52:6 K:BB.
