Braves' Chad Sobotka: Optioned to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sobotka was optioned to team's alternate training site Sunday.

Sobotka was recalled to the big-league club Saturday to provide depth in the bullpen. However, he struggled in two-thirds of an inning, surrendering five earned runs on five hits. Bryse Wilson takes over his roster spot as bullpen depth.

Braves' Chad Sobotka: Recalled by Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sobotka was recalled by Atlanta on Saturday.

Sobotka was sent to the alternate training site in the middle of August, but he'll now return to the major-league club after Huascar Ynoa was sent down. Sobotka tossed three scoreless innings while allowing one hit and two walks and striking out one over three appearances earlier this season.

Braves' Chad Sobotka: Heads back to Gwinnett
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Braves optioned Sobotka to their alternate training site in Gwinnett on Monday.

Sobotka was removed from the active roster as the Braves cleared a spot for designated hitter Matt Adams (hamstring) to return from the 10-day injured list. The right-hander's latest stint with Atlanta lasted two days, with Sobotka failing to appear out of the bullpen in victories Saturday and Sunday over the Marlins.

Braves' Chad Sobotka: Recalled by Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sobotka was recalled from the Braves' alternate training site Saturday.

Sobotka has gone back and forth between the major-league club and the alternate training site, but he'll claim a spot on the active roster after Ronald Acuna (wrist) was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday. The right-hander has made three relief appearances in 2020, tossing three scoreless innings while allowing one hit and two walks with one strikeout.

Braves' Chad Sobotka: Returns to alternate training site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sobotka was returned to the Braves' alternate training site Sunday.

Sobotka served in Atlanta's bullpen as the 29th man for Sunday's doubleheader against the Phillies. He came in to finish the contest in the second game of the twin bill, firing one scoreless inning while allowing no hits or walks and striking out one. He could be an option to fill in later in the season, but he'll continue working at the alternate training site for now.

Braves' Chad Sobotka: Sent to alternate camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Braves recalled Sobotka from their alternate training site ahead of Sunday's doubleheader with the Phillies.

Sobotka was demoted after Saturday's 5-0 loss to clear a spot in the bullpen for Robbie Erlin, but the Braves will bring the former back as the 29th man for the twin bill. The right-hander has tossed a pair of scoreless innings across his two relief appearances this season.

Braves' Chad Sobotka: Rejoins big-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sobotka was recalled from the Braves' alternate training site Friday.

Sobotka was optioned to the alternate training site Thursday but will quickly rejoin the team. The 27-year-old delivered a scoreless inning during his only appearance this season.

August 6, 2020 12:32 PM
Braves' Chad Sobotka: Sent to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Braves optioned Sobotka to their alternate training site Thursday.

Sobotka and catcher Alex Jackson were the victims of Atlanta having to reduce its 30-man active roster to 28 ahead of Thursday's deadline. The reliever had already been optioned to the alternate site once before this season and made only one appearance out of the Atlanta bullpen.

Braves' Chad Sobotka: Back in big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sobotka was recalled by Atlanta on Tuesday.

Sobotka spent a day on the active roster earlier in the season but did not enter a game. After posting a 6.21 ERA in 29 innings last season, he'll likely be ticketed for low-leverage innings during his time with the team.

July 29, 2020 03:48 PM
Braves' Chad Sobotka: Sent back to alternate camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sobotka was optioned to the Braves' alternate training site Wednesday.

Sobotka spent just one day on the active roster and did not make an appearance. He'll make way for outfielder Scott Schebler, who was called up in a corresponding move.

July 27, 2020 10:20 PM
Braves' Chad Sobotka: Recalled from satellite camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sobotka was recalled from the Braves' satellite camp following Monday's loss to the Rays, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

This move corresponds with Mike Foltynewicz getting designated for assignment. Sobotka had a 6.21 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 38 strikeouts in 29 innings out of the Braves' bullpen in 2019.

March 9, 2020 03:12 PM
Braves' Chad Sobotka: Heading to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sobotka was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday.

Sobotka could spend some time in the big-league bullpen this season, but it's hardly surprising to see him open in the minors after he struggled to a 6.21 ERA in 29 innings last season. His 28.4 percent strikeout rate was fairly strong but was overshadowed by his 14.2 percent walk rate.

September 1, 2019 01:00 PM
Braves' Chad Sobotka: Rejoins big-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sobotka was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett by the Braves on Sunday.

Sobotka made the Braves' Opening Day roster but hasn't pitched in the majors since late July. The 26-year-old has a 5.54 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 33:14 K:BB over 26 innings this season.

August 1, 2019 05:40 PM
Braves' Chad Sobotka: Shuttled back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sobotka was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday.

Mark Melancon, who was acquired from the Giants on Wednesday, will take Sobotka's place on the roster. The 26-year-old Sobotka has struggled in eight appearances since the All-Star break, posting a 5.68 ERA, 1.74 WHIP and 9:3 K:BB in 6.1 innings.

June 30, 2019 06:40 PM
Braves' Chad Sobotka: Rejoins Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sobotka was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday.

Sobotka was sent down Tuesday but makes a quick return to the Braves with Anthony Swarzak (shoulder) heading to the injured list. Sobotka has a 7.07 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 18:9 K:BB over 14 innings this season.

June 25, 2019 11:04 AM
Braves' Chad Sobotka: Moving back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Braves optioned Sobotka to Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Sobotka's latest stint in the majors lasted just two days, but the right-hander at least made a good impression with two scoreless innings in Monday's 8-3 loss. His demotion clears a spot on the active roster and in the Atlanta bullpen for Sean Newcomb (concussion), who was reinstated from the 7-day injured list in a corresponding move.

June 23, 2019 12:36 PM
Braves' Chad Sobotka: Rejoins major-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sobotka was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday.

Sobotka spent nearly a month on the injured list with an abdominal strain earlier this season and was optioned to Gwinnett after being activated in late May. The 25-year-old had a 1.88 ERA and 0.98 WHIP in his first taste of the majors last season, but he's struggled in 2019 with 11 runs allowed over 12 innings.

May 25, 2019 11:48 AM
Braves' Chad Sobotka: Activated, optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sobotka (abdomen) was activated from the 10-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett.

He only made one appearance on his rehab assignment before coming off the injured list. Sobotka will likely be promoted to the majors the next time the Braves need a fresh arm in the bullpen.

Braves' Chad Sobotka: Begins rehab assignment Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sobotka (abdomen) will begin a rehab assignment Thursday with Triple-A Gwinnett, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

He has been out since late April and could return before the end of May. While Sobotka's fastball-slider combo gives him some late-inning upside in the long term, he will likely pitch in mid-leverage situations when he is activated.

April 29, 2019 05:32 PM
Braves' Chad Sobotka: Sent to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sobotka was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday with a left abdomen strain.

Sobotka apparently suffered the injury during Sunday's win over the Rockies, during which he allowed an unearned run on one hit, one walk and one hit batsman while striking out two in 1.1 innings. The severity of the issue has yet to be determined; the right-hander will be eligible to return May 9, should he prove ready. Grant Dayton was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett in a corresponding move.
