Braves' Touki Toussaint: Optioned to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toussaint was optioned to Atlanta's alternate training site following Monday's game.

Toussaint allowed eight runs (five earned) while recording just eight outs in his start against the Orioles on Monday. He now owns an 8.88 ERA in 24.1 innings on the year and a 5.97 ERA in 95 career big-league innings. Jasseel De La Cruz was recalled in a corresponding move.

Braves' Touki Toussaint: Hammered for eight runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toussaint (0-2) allowed eight runs (five earned) on seven hits and three walks over 2.2 innings Monday, striking out two batters and taking the loss against Baltimore.

Toussaint allowed a run in the first inning before the Orioles began teeing off in the third inning. After allowing five runs through 2.2 innings, he left the game with the bases loaded and was charged with three more runs that scored on Luke Jackson. The 24-year-old's season ERA is up to 8.88 in 24.1 innings. With Cole Hamels (triceps) returning this week, Toussaint will likely move to a bullpen role.

Braves' Touki Toussaint: Called up for start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Braves recalled Toussaint from their alternate training site ahead of his scheduled start Monday in Baltimore.

Toussaint will be making his fifth start and his first since Aug. 17 as the Braves continue to cycle through pitchers in a patchwork rotation that has had several members deal with injuries or perform ineffectively this season. The latter case applies to Toussaint, who has stayed healthy but has submitted a 7.89 ERA and 1.52 WHIP across 21.2 innings with the big club. While a baseline quality start Monday could be enough for Toussaint to earn another turn through the rotation, his poor form this season suggests that fantasy players can't rely on him to meet that low standard.

Braves' Touki Toussaint: Slated to start Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toussaint will start Monday's game against the Orioles, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Toussaint has been working at the alternate training site for nearly three weeks, but he'll return to the active roster for the series opener in Baltimore on Monday. Toussaint's start will allow Cole Hamels (triceps) and Max Fried (back) to get a few extra days of rest before potentially returning to the mound. Toussaint has been quite inconsistent this season and carries a 7.89 ERA and 1.52 WHIP over 21.2 innings during six appearances (four starts).

Braves' Touki Toussaint: Sent to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toussaint was optioned to Atlanta's alternate training site Tuesday.

Ian Anderson's contract was purchased in a corresponding move. Inconsistency has plagued Toussaint at the big-league level, as he had a splendid nine-strikeout outing against the Blue Jays earlier this year, but followed that up by walking nine batters over his next 8.1 innings (three appearances). He could rejoin the big-league club when it needs a fresh bullpen arm later this summer.

Braves' Touki Toussaint: Works out of bullpen Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toussaint came on in relief in Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Phillies, giving up a run on two hits and two walks while striking out one over 1.1 innings.

Though the Braves headed into the weekend with just three healthy rotation members -- including two in Josh Tomlin and Robbie Erlin who were recently promoted from the bullpen -- manager Brian Snitker decided he had seen enough from Toussaint as a starter. Over his four starts, Toussaint gave up 13 runs (12 earned) on 13 hits and 10 walks over 17.2 innings, prompting the Braves to move him back to a relief role. The Braves will have to settle on a new replacement in the rotation for Toussaint on Tuesday against the Yankees, with Mark Bowman of MLB.com speculating that 22-year-old prospect Ian Anderson could get the chance to make his MLB debut.

Braves' Touki Toussaint: Not starting this weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toussaint won't start during the upcoming weekend series against the Phillies.

It was reported earlier in the day that the 24-year-old would be taking the mound for Sunday's series finale, but Josh Tomlin will be starting instead. The Braves have two scheduled off days next week, so it's possible Toussaint is shifted to the bullpen until Atlanta requires the full complements of its starting rotation.

Braves' Touki Toussaint: Next start coming Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toussaint is scheduled to start Sunday against the Phillies, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Toussaint was originally lined up to start Saturday, but Robbie Erlin will get the ball instead as the Braves give the right-hander -- who has allowed nine earned runs over his last seven innings -- an extra day of rest.

Braves' Touki Toussaint: Early exit Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toussaint didn't factor into the decision in Monday's 7-6 win over the Nationals, giving up four runs on two hits and six walks over three innings. He struck out four.

His control issues were exacerbated by the fact that both hits he gave up left the yard, but the damage could have been a lot worse, and Toussaint was taken off the hook for the loss by a ninth-inning rally. The erratic right-hander now has a 7.97 ERA and 27:11 K:BB through 20.1 innings, and he'll try to turn things around in his next outing Saturday, at home against the Phillies.

Braves' Touki Toussaint: Struggles versus Yanks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toussaint (0-1) was charged with the loss Tuesday against the Yankees after allowing six runs (five earned) on four hits with three strikeouts and one walk over four innings.

The 24-year-old surrendered a three-run homer to Luke Voit in the opening frame, and he gave up another three spot during the third inning to doom his start. Toussaint will carry a 7.27 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 23:5 K:BB into his next outing, which lines up for Sunday in Miami.

Braves' Touki Toussaint: Whiffs nine in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toussaint took a no-decision during Thursday's win over the Blue Jays, striking out nine while surrendering three runs on four hits across 6.2 innings.

Making his second start of the season, Toussaint reached career highs in both innings pitched (6.2) and strikeouts (nine). The 24-year-old gave up a solo home run to Bo Bichette in the fourth frame and did not issue any walks. Despite a shaky first appearance in relief this season during which he was roughed up for six runs over 2.2 innings, Toussaint has been solid in both starts so far. Next up, he'll head to New York for a tough matchup against the Yankees.

Braves' Touki Toussaint: Blanks Mets in short outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toussaint didn't factor into the decision during Saturday's 7-1 win over the Mets, allowing three hits and three walks over four scoreless innings. He struck out five.

Making his first start of the season, Toussaint's control came and went -- he threw 45 of 74 pitches for strikes -- and he wasn't efficient enough to last the five innings necessary to qualify for a win, but he otherwise gave Atlanta everything it could have hoped for. There are other candidates for a rotation spot in the organization if he falters, but Toussaint pitched well enough to hold onto the job for now. He'll next take the mound Thursday in a home start against the Blue Jays.

Braves' Touki Toussaint: Named Saturday's starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toussaint will start Saturday against the Mets, 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.

Atlanta had a rotation spot open after designating Mike Foltynewicz for assignment following his poor season debut Monday. Whether Toussaint remains in the rotation for good or simply gets the first crack at the job is not yet clear. The 24-year-old was once considered a fairly interesting prospect, combining promising stuff with shaky control, but he's yet to put things together through 73.1 big-league innings, the majority of which have come out of the bullpen. His 24.7 percent strikeout rate has thus far been more than canceled out by his 14.3 percent walk rate, leading to a career 5.52 ERA.

Braves' Touki Toussaint: Roughed up in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toussaint gave up six runs on five hits and a walk over 2.2 innings of relief during Monday's 14-5 loss to the Rays. He struck out six.

While the right-hander did show flashes of dominance and fired 42 of his 67 pitches for strikes, Toussaint was far too hittable when he was over the plate, serving up a homer to Hunter Relfroe along with a pair of doubles to Brandon Lowe. Atlanta has a sudden opening in its rotation after Mike Foltynewicz was abruptly designated for assignment, but Toussaint's performance in relief of Folty on Monday doesn't suggest he's ready to fill it.

Braves' Touki Toussaint: Cleared to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toussaint (illness) was cleared to return to the field Friday, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Toussaint hadn't been able to report to camp after testing positive for COVID-19. He's since cleared MLB protocol by testing negative twice and is now back on the field. It's unclear whether or not the lost time will prevent him from playing a role early in the season, though he doesn't project as a key member of the Braves' staff after struggling to a 5.62 ERA and a 1.68 WHIP in 41.2 innings last season.

Braves' Touki Toussaint: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toussaint (illness) has been placed on the COVID-19 injured list.

The Braves confirmed July 4 that Toussaint tested positive for COVID-19, and he'll be on the COVID-19 injured list as a result. The 24-year-old is reportedly asymptomatic, but under MLB protocol, he'll need to test negative twice before he's allowed to rejoin the team. Toussaint was already a bit of a longshot to crack the Opening Day roster, but it's unclear whether he'll be physically ready to play by the start of the regular season.

Braves' Touki Toussaint: Tests positive for COVID-19
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Brian Snitker said Saturday that Toussaint tested positive for COVID-19, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Toussaint is one of four members of the Braves to test positive for COVID-19. While the 24-year-old is reportedly asymptomatic, he'll need to clear the league protocol prior to rejoining the team.

Braves' Touki Toussaint: Could be part of expanded roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toussaint could see consistent usage as part of the Atlanta staff this season if rosters are expanded beyond 26 players, Gabriel Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The 23-year-old right-hander failed to win a rotation spot in camp and had already been optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett when play was suspended, but Toussaint would be one of the top candidates to handle a long relief or sixth starter role for the team, along with Kyle Wright and Bryse Wilson. Toussaint has strikeout upside, but his control and command remain an issue and he has a 77:47 K:BB in 70.2 career big-league innings. He did at least appear to take a small step forward on that front with an 8:3 K:BB in 8.2 Grapefruit League frames this spring.

March 20, 2020 04:56 PM
Braves' Touki Toussaint: Heading to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toussaint was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday.

The 23-year-old was competing for a spot in Atlanta's starting rotation but once the season resumes, he'll begin 2020 in the minors. Toussaint appeared in 24 games (one start) for the Braves last season and had a 5.62 ERA, 1.68 WHIP and 13.1 percent walk rate over 41.2 innings

Braves' Touki Toussaint: Crisp outing in long relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toussaint fired 2.2 no-hit innings of relief in Monday's 6-4 loss to the Phillies, giving up one run on two walks while striking out four.

Though he entered the contest out of the bullpen, Toussaint is building up his arm for starting duty and remains firmly in the mix for one of the two available spots in the Braves' Opening Day rotation. Toussaint might have bolstered his bid for the rotation with Monday's strong showing, with Brian Snitker telling David O'Brien of The Athletic afterward that he's been satisfied with how the right-hander has cleaned up his delivery over the offseason. If Toussaint can continue to limit the free passes in his subsequent spring outings, it could be enough to put him ahead of Sean Newcomb, Kyle Wright, Bryse Wilson and non-roster invitee Felix Hernandez in the battle for the two starting spots.
