  • Braves' Max Fried: Blanks Reds in Game 1

    Fried allowed six hits over seven scoreless innings in a no-decision against the Reds on Wednesday in a Game 1 of the NL Wild Card Series. He struck out five and did not issue a walk.

    While he was not quite as dominant as opposing starter Trevor Bauer, all that matters is that Fried hung zeros on the scoreboard. The lefty showcased his incredible curveball and worked out of two-on, one-out jams in the first, sixth and seventh innings as part of Atlanta's 13-inning combined shutout. Fried stepped up in a major way after the Braves lost Mike Soroka (Achilles) early on, posting a 2.25 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 50:19 K:BB in 56 frames during the regular season. He will start Game 1 of the NLDS if the Braves are able to close this series out.

  • Braves' Bryse Wilson: Left off wild-card roster

    The Braves excluded Wilson from the 28-man roster for their wild-card series with the Reds that began Wednesday.

    Atlanta only needs a three-man rotation for its three-game series, so Wilson found himself as the odd man out with the Braves expected to turn to Max Fried, Ian Anderson and Kyle Wright for starts. Wilson could be a candidate to rejoin the postseason roster in the divisional round, should the Braves win their series with the Reds.

  • Braves' Luke Jackson: Denied spot on wild-card roster

    The Braves excluded Jackson from their roster for their wild-card series with the Reds that began Wednesday.

    Jackson was on the Braves' active roster throughout the regular season, but his poor finish to the campaign likely cost him a spot in the team's bullpen for the playoffs. Over his last five outings, Jackson gave up 13 runs on 18 hits and five walks over 10.1 innings.

  • Braves' Adeiny Hechavarria: Misses out on wild-card roster

    The Braves optioned Hechavarria to their alternate training site Wednesday.

    Hechavarria missed out on one of three available reserve infielder roles on Atlanta's roster for its wild-card series with the Reds. The Braves will instead go with Charlie Culberson, Johan Camargo and Pablo Sandoval as their reserve options.

  • Braves' Charlie Culberson: Joining big club for playoffs

    The Braves selected Culberson's contract from their alternate training site Wednesday ahead of Game 1 of their wild-card series with the Reds.

    Atlanta opened up a spot for Culberson on the 40-man roster by releasing Tommy Milone (elbow) and a spot on the active roster by demoting Adeiny Hechavarria. Culberson, who logged seven plate appearances with the Braves during the regular season, is expected to serve as a utility man in the playoffs.

  • Braves' Johan Camargo: Returns to big club

    The Braves recalled Camargo from their alternate training site Wednesday ahead of Game 1 of their wild-card series with the Reds.

  • Braves' Cristian Pache: Makes wild-card roster

    Pache made the roster for the NL Wild Card Series against the Reds.

    Despite only have four MLB at-bats to his name, Pache is Atlanta's best defensive outfielder, which was a key reason he made the roster. The rookie may not make a single start in these playoffs, but he could come in late in games as a defensive replacement or pinch runner.

  • Braves' Ender Inciarte: Not on wild-card roster

    Inciarte is not on the Braves roster for the NL Wild Card Series against the Reds.

    Cristian Pache beat out Inciarte as the team's defensive replacement off the bench. Adam Duvall, Ronald Acuna and Nick Markakis will start in the outfield from left to right in Game 1. Inciarte hit .194/.231/.250 in 36 September at-bats.

  • Braves' Austin Riley: Batting ninth in Game 1

    Riley (quadriceps) will start at third base and bat ninth Wednesday in Game 1 against the Reds.

    We already knew that he was going to be in the Game 1 lineup, despite the fact he is not fully healthy. Riley will have his work cut out for him facing righty Trevor Bauer, who has held same-handed hitters to a .146/.205/.220 line this season.

  • Braves' Ronald Acuna: Leading off in Game 1

    Acuna (wrist) is leading off and starting in center field Wednesday in Game 1 against the Reds.

    He missed the season finale with left wrist irritation but will start Game 1 of the NL Wild Card Series as expected. Acuna hit .256/.400/.620 against right-handed pitchers this season. Righty Trevor Bauer is starting for Cincinnati. Bauer held right-handed batters to a .146/.205/.220 line this season.
