Braves' Sean Newcomb: Sharp in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newcomb gave up a hit and struck out two over two scoreless innings of relief during Monday's loss to the Dodgers.

Control issues cost him his spot in the rotation, but Newcomb seems to have solved the problem, issuing zero free passes in his final 13 innings for Triple-A Gwinnett before being called back up Saturday and continuing to display strong form. He could get a chance to start again later in the year if another pitcher gets hurt, but for now expect the 25-year-old lefty to bolster Atlanta's bullpen.

Braves' Sean Newcomb: Recalled by Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newcomb was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Saturday.

Newcomb was optioned to Gwinnett in mid-April after recording a 5:8 K:BB in his first three starts. The Braves haven't announced what his role will be this time around, but there doesn't appear to be a spot open in the rotation at the moment, so he may be ticketed for a relief role. Touki Toussaint was optioned in a corresponding move.

Braves' Sean Newcomb: Sharp in Triple-A start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newcomb worked seven innings and gave up two runs on six hits and no walks while striking out seven Wednesday in his start for Triple-A Gwinnett. He threw 61 of his 88 pitches for strikes.

There had been some murmurs earlier in the week that Newcomb might be in consideration for a spot start Thursday in Cincinnati, but Julio Teheran was ultimately awarded the nod for that game with Atlanta opting to keep all of their rotation members on normal rest. Newcomb instead stayed on turn for his second start with Gwinnett and turned in an encouraging outing. The zero free passes in particular were a welcome sight after Newcomb walked eight in 12.1 innings with the big club prior to being demoted. The lefty may need to display quality control for a few outings in a row before he earns another look in Atlanta.

Braves' Sean Newcomb: Could make spot start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newcomb could be recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett to start Thursday's game against the Reds, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

The Braves can get away without adding another pitcher to the rotation this week, but it appears they may want to build in an additional day of rest for Mike Foltynewicz (elbow), who is expected to return from the 10-day injured list this weekend against the Rockies after recently completing his fourth rehab start. If Atlanta does in fact save Foltynewicz for the weekend, Newcomb would be eligible to return from the minors Thursday and would make for the most logical choice to fill the opening in the pitching schedule. According to Mark Bowman of MLB.com, the Braves may use the last two games of their series in Cincinnati as a de facto audition for the final spot in their rotation between Newcomb and Mike Soroka, who is scheduled to start Wednesday.

Braves' Sean Newcomb: Heading to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newcomb was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday.

Newcomb allowed four runs over 1.1 innings during Saturday's start against the Mets and apparently gave the Braves all they needed to see with Mike Foltynewicz (elbow) nearing his return from the injured list. Newcomb allowed only two runs over 11 innings during his first two starts, but his 5:6 K:BB tells a more troubling story. Touki Toussaint threw six innings of stellar relief Saturday and figures to be in the mix for the starting rotation with Newcomb now in the minors, though the Braves have yet to announce their plans for the rotation.
