Top Braves News

  • Braves' Max Fried: Exits with illness, 2-1 lead

    Fried exited Friday's start against the Mets after five innings with an apparent illness, Kevin McAlpin of 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.

    He allowed four hits and one run while striking out three over five innings before exiting. Fried had only thrown 71 pitches, but he was seen vomiting in a trash can in the dugout in between innings, so it seems like he caught a stomach bug. He lines up to pitch in the final game of the regular season Wednesday in Miami if he feels up to it.

  • Braves' Charlie Morton: Back with Atlanta for at least 2023

    Morton agreed with Atlanta on a one-year, $20 million contract for the 2023 season that includes a $20 million club option for 2024.

    Morton, who turns 39 in November, has a 4.29 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 200 strikeouts (ninth most in the majors) in 167.2 innings this season. The club option does not include a buyout.

  • Braves' Spencer Strider: Not throwing

    Strider (oblique) has not been cleared to resume throwing, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

    Strider won't be returning during the regular season, but Atlanta hopes to make another deep playoff run, so Strider's status remains relevant. He has not pitched since Sept. 18 due to an oblique strain.

  • Braves' Kirby Yates: Throws bullpen Friday

    Yates (elbow) threw a bullpen session Friday, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

    Yates has been sidelined since mid-September due to right elbow inflammation but has been hopeful that he'll be able to return this season. It's not yet clear whether he'll be available for the playoffs, but he's trending in the right direction and would likely be able to have a relatively normal offseason, even if he isn't cleared to return to game action.

  • Braves' Matt Olson: Crushes 30th home run

    Olson went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 3-2, extra-inning loss against Washington.

    The Atlanta slugger took an 0-2 fastball from Josiah Gray the opposite way to left field for his 30th home run of the season and tie the game at 1-1. Olson's bat has come back to life the last couple of days after he received a breather Sept. 24 in response to a .111/.210/.167 slash line in his first 81 September plate appearances. Since the breather, he is 5-for-14 with three extra-base hits.

  • Braves' Jake Odorizzi: Unable to finish four innings

    Odorizzi did not factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing two runs on four hits and three walks over 3.2 innings in a 3-2 loss against the Nationals.

    For the fourth start in a row, Odorizzi failed to complete five innings. Wednesday's struggles were highlighted by a 0:3 K:BB on the night, as manager Brian Snitker opted to turn to the bullpen in the fourth inning with Atlanta fighting for the division title. In nine starts since being traded to Atlanta, Odorizzi owns a 5.69 ERA with one win compared to three losses. He is tentatively scheduled to face Miami next week.

  • Braves' Eddie Rosario: Gaining traction in regular lineup

    Rosario will start in left field and bat seventh in Wednesday's game against the Nationals, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    He's now picked up starts in each of Atlanta's last 13 matchups with right-handed pitchers, a firm indication that the lefty-hitting Rosario has settled back into the large side of a platoon in left field. The 31-year-old will take a six-game hitting streak into Wednesday's series finale.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Back on bench

    Ozuna is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game in Washington, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Ozuna went 2-for-7 with a home run, a double, a walk and two RBI while starting against right-handed pitchers the past two days, but he'll cede designated hitter duties to Robbie Grossman in the series finale. Atlanta will likely take a committee approach to the DH spot over the final week of the regular season, making it difficult to depend on Ozuna seeing consistent at-bats.

  • Braves' Orlando Arcia: Overtakes Grissom on depth chart

    Arcia will start at second base and bat eighth in Wednesday's game against the Nationals, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Arcia appears to have taken over as Atlanta's primary option at the keystone, as he'll stick in the lineup against a right-handed pitcher for the third game in a row while slumping rookie Vaughn Grissom remains on the bench. After slugging home runs in both of the first two games in Washington, Arcia should continue to see steady run while he's wielding a hot bat.

  • Braves' William Contreras: Takes seat Wednesday

    Contreras is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Nationals, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Contreras is getting a breather for the series finale after he caught the past two games while Travis d'Arnaud rested. Though Contreras often handles designated-hitter duties on days d'Arnaud catches, manager Brian Snitker will tab Robbie Grossman for the DH role Wednesday.

  • Braves' Vaughn Grissom: Loses grip on everyday role

    Grissom is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game in Washington, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    For the third game in a row, the rookie finds himself on the bench against a right-handed starting pitcher, an indication that manager Brian Snitker views Grissom as a bench player. Orlando Arcia will pick up another start at the keystone at the expense of Grissom, who has slashed .163/.250/.163 with a 29.2 percent strikeout rate over his last 14 games.

  • Braves' Ronald Acuna: Homers twice in Tuesday's win

    Acuna went 2-for-5 with two solo home runs in Tuesday's 8-2 win over the Nationals.

    After missing a few games late last week with back trouble, Acuna came off the bench for a key hit Sunday and appeared to be 100 percent healthy Tuesday as he launched his 14th and 15th homers of the year. The 24-year-old is slashing just .256/.304/.477 through 92 plate appearances in September, but he could be gearing up for a big finish to the regular season as Atlanta tries to win its fifth straight NL East crown.

  • Braves' Kyle Muller: Sent back down

    Muller was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday.

    The southpaw was productive during Tuesday's start in Washington, allowing two runs on six hits and a walk while striking out four in 4.2 innings. However, he'll head back to the minors as part of a move to make room for Silvino Bracho on the active roster. Muller spent most of the 2022 season at Gwinnett and posted a 3.41 ERA and 1.18 WHIP in 134.2 innings over 23 starts.

  • Braves' Huascar Ynoa: Lands on 60-day IL

    Ynoa (elbow) was recalled and placed on the 60-day injured list Wednesday.

    Ynoa has been in the minors since August, but he underwent Tommy John surgery in early September. He'll likely miss the entire 2023 campaign, and Wednesday's transaction is simply procedural to make room on the 40-man roster.

  • Braves' Silvino Bracho: Contract selected Wednesday

    Bracho's contract was selected from Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday.

    Bracho was traded from Boston to Atlanta in late June, and he's posted a 2.08 ERA and 1.04 WHIP in 26 innings over 20 appearances (four starts) at Gwinnett. He had a brief stint in Atlanta's bullpen in early July and will rejoin the active roster ahead of the final week of the regular season.
