Braves' Sean Newcomb: Picks up third win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newcomb (3-1) issued two walks and struck out two in one scoreless inning, earning the win against the Padres on Saturday.

Newcomb's scoreless ninth inning put him in line for the victory when the Braves put three runs on the board in the tenth. The reliever has 36 strikeouts in 41 innings to go with a 2.41 ERA and 1.34 WHIP this year. Closer Luke Jackson has allowed one run in both of his two appearances to start the second half of the season, and Newcomb may receive a chance to close out a game if Jackson's struggles persist. Newcomb has one save and nine holds in his 26 appearances this season.

Braves' Sean Newcomb: Grabs hold in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newcomb gave up two hits and struck out two in a scoreless seventh inning Tuesday to record his seventh hold of the season in a win over the Cubs.

The southpaw was pitching for the first time since June 15, after he took a line drive off the back of his head and subsequently landed on the IL with a concussion. Newcomb will remain part of Atlanta's setup crew for now, but his ability to work multiple innings does give manager Brian Snitker some flexibility in late-game situations.

Braves' Sean Newcomb: Returns from concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newcomb was activated from the 7-day concussion injured list Tuesday.

Newcomb has been out of action since taking a line drive to the back of his head June 15. He's expected to pitch out of the bullpen going forward. Chad Sobotka was optioned to clear a spot for him on the roster.

Braves' Sean Newcomb: Set for activation Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newcomb (concussion) is expected to come off the 7-day IL prior to Tuesday's game against the Cubs, Mark Bowman of reports.

The southpaw struck out five batters in two scoreless innings during a rehab appearance for Triple-A Gwinnett on Saturday, and apparently won't need any further tuneup before rejoining the Atlanta bullpen. Newcomb has a 2.12 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 29:12 K:BB through 34 innings this season.

Braves' Sean Newcomb: Will stick in bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Brian Snitker said Sunday that he expects to keep Newcomb (concussion) in a relief role when the southpaw is reinstated from the 7-day injured list, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Newcomb shined in his rehab outing Saturday with Triple-A Gwinnett, striking out five over two scoreless, one-hit frames. Though Newcomb is on track to return from the IL on Tuesday and the Braves have a need for a fifth starter beginning with Thursday's game against Chicago after Mike Foltynewicz was demoted to Triple-A, Bryse Wilson and Touki Toussaint are viewed as more likely candidates to enter the rotation. Since rejoining the Braves in early May, Newcomb has posted an impressive 0.83 ERA and 24:4 K:BB in 21.2 innings across 17 appearances, all but one of which came out of the bullpen.

Braves' Sean Newcomb: Begins rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newcomb (concussion) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Gwinnett on Saturday.

Newcomb hasn't played since getting hit by a line drive last Saturday. He appears to be making progress in his return from a concussion and should be ready to return to Atlanta soon.

June 20, 2019 02:12 PM
Braves' Sean Newcomb: Lands on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newcomb (concussion) was placed on the 7-day injured list Wednesday.

It was originally thought that Newcomb avoided a concussion after getting hit in the head by a line drive over the weekend, but according to David O'Brien of The Athletic, he experienced symptoms after working out Tuesday. Newcomb is apparently feeling better, but he'll need to make a rehab appearance with Triple-A Gwinnett before the Braves feel comfortable activating him. Huascar Ynoa was recalled from the Stripers and will replace Newcomb in the bullpen for the time being.

Braves' Sean Newcomb: Moving to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newcomb (head) will move to the bullpen due to the impending arrival of Dallas Keuchel and could be available as soon as Wednesday, Mark Bowman of reports.

Newcomb left his start Saturday against the Phillies after getting hit in the head by a line drive. He was not diagnosed with a concussion and was able to throw Monday without issues, so he should be available out of the pen as soon as his arm is rested.

June 16, 2019 12:52 AM
Braves' Sean Newcomb: Early outlook positive
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newcomb (head) went through concussion testing and other medical tests Saturday but appears to have avoided serious injury, Mark Bowman of reports.

Newcomb was forced to leave Saturday's game after being hit in the back of the head by a line drive, but early indications are that he should be okay. The 26-year-old was able to leave the field under his own power and according to Bowman had no issues while undergoing testing. Regardless, Newcomb will continue to be evaluated overnight to be safe.

Braves' Sean Newcomb: Exits Saturday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newcomb was hit by a line drive in the back of the head/neck area and was removed from Saturday's start versus the Phillies, 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.

It was a scary moment with the ball coming off the bat at over 102 mph, but Newcomb was ultimately able to walk off the field under his own power. The left-hander struck out three and allowed two unearned runs and a walk over 2.2 innings.

June 11, 2019 05:00 PM
Braves' Sean Newcomb: Expected to start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newcomb is in line to start Saturday's game against the Phillies, Mark Bowman of reports.

Newcomb tossed 4.2 scoreless innings Monday night against the Pirates, and it appears that he's earned at least one more chance to start unless he's needed out of the bullpen before Saturday's contest. He owns a 2.59 ERA with a 26:10 K:BB over 31.1 innings this season.

June 11, 2019 01:08 PM
Braves' Sean Newcomb: Grabs first win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newcomb (1-0) picked up the win in Monday's victory over the Pirates, allowing only one hit over 4.2 scoreless innings of relief while striking out six.

The southpaw was brilliant after replacing Kevin Gausman in the third inning, and a 13-run outburst by the Atlanta offense was more than enough to reward Newcomb with the win. There's little immediate chance of him moving back into the rotation with Dallas Keuchel on his way, but Newcomb has become a valuable jack-of-all-trades in the team's bullpen. Since returning to the majors a little over a month ago, he's got a 1.42 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 21:2 K:BB over 19 innings while recording a save and six holds in 16 appearances in addition to Monday's victory.

Braves' Sean Newcomb: Notches first career save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newcomb fired a perfect ninth inning with one strikeout to earn the save over San Francisco on Monday.

Since returning to the MLB following a minor-league stint, Newcomb has tossed 8.1 scoreless innings of relief and has yet to walk a batter. In three April starts, he walked eight in just 12.1 frames. Atlanta's closing situation is a mess right now as Luke Jackson has blown three of his nine save chances. It's possible Newcomb gets a few more looks in that role in the near future.

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 Monday. He could get a chance to start again in the near future if Kevin Gausman's pending appeal of a five-game suspension proves unsuccessful, but for now, expect the 25-year-old lefty to bolster Atlanta's bullpen.

May 4, 2019 03:08 PM
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.

April 26, 2019 01:32 AM
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 its 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 was 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 a logical choice to fill the opening in the pitching schedule. Bryse Wilson also looms as a candidate for the spot start, though his availability would hinge on whether or not he's needed in relief Tuesday and Wednesday. According to Mark Bowman of, 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 one of Newcomb/Wilson 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.

April 14, 2019 02:56 AM
Braves' Sean Newcomb: Mauled by Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newcomb didn't factor into the decision during Saturday's 11-7 win over the Mets, surrendering four runs on five hits and two walks over 1.1 innings.

Atlanta handed the southpaw a 4-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning, but Newcomb immediately squandered it and got chased from the game after only 35 pitches (21 strikes). Touki Toussaint pitched very well in relief of Newcomb and Mike Foltynewicz (elbow) is close to rejoining the rotation as well, so Newcomb -- who now sports a 4.38 ERA and awful 5:8 K:BB through 12.1 innings -- could have a lot riding on his next start, currently set for Thursday at home against Arizona.

Braves' Sean Newcomb: Looks good in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newcomb allowed two runs on four hits while striking out two and walking two across seven innings in a no-decision against the Marlins on Sunday.

The 25-year-old shut out the Cubs but didn't make it through five innings in his first start, and then Sunday, the Braves bullpen coughed up a one-run lead in the ninth. Newcomb may still be looking for his first win, but he owns a 1.64 ERA through two starts. He also has a 1.45 WHIP and five strikeouts in 11.0 innings. His next outing is expected to be against the Mets.
