Braves' Ronald Acuna: Collects hit in MLB debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna went 1-for-5 with a run scored in Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Reds.

He very nearly kicked his career off with a bang, driving the first big-league pitch he saw to the warning track in center field and coming up about three feet shy of a home run, but Acuna redeemed himself later in the game by singling up the middle and coming around to score the tying run in the eighth inning. The 20-year-old is the youngest player in the league and there will undoubtedly be growing pains -- he struck out twice Wednesday -- but his five-category upside is already apparent.

Braves' Ozzie Albies: Goes yard again Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Albies went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a second run scored in Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Reds.

He crossed the plate with the winning run in the top of the ninth inning after being hit by a pitch to lead off the frame. Albies' homer was his seventh of the year, but he almost had an even better fantasy performance -- he appeared to steal third base easily in the first inning, only to have it waved off due to umpire interference on Reds catcher Tucker Barnhart's attempted throw. The 21-year-old is only 1-for-3 on steals through 23 games, but he has the speed and instincts to add a lot more value in that category as the season progresses.

Braves' Matt Wisler: Struggles in Wednesday's no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wisler didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Reds, allowing four runs on nine hits and three walks over five innings. He failed to strike out a batter.

The right-hander loaded the bases with nobody out in the first inning, and while he was able to escape that jam unscathed, it set the tone for the rest of his night. Wisler generated only four swinging strikes among his 83 pitches, and with an off-day coming Monday for the Braves, he may not get another start before Luiz Gohara (ankle) is ready to come off the disabled list.

Braves' A.J. Minter: Could see more save chances
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minter notched his first save of the season after striking out one batter in a scoreless inning against the Reds on Wednesday, and manager Brian Snitker said after the game that he expects to see Minter in more of those spots moving forward, Kevin McAlpin of 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.

Minter has excelled as the team's top setup man so far this season, and the young lefty didn't miss a beat when given his first career big-league save opportunity Wednesday. With a pair of lefties due up for Cincinnati in the ninth inning -- Joey Votto and Scooter Gennett -- Snitker opted to play matchups and go with Minter over the team's primary closer, right-hander Arodys Vizcaino. The move paid off, as the 24-year-old southpaw needed just 11 pitches -- seven of which were strikes -- to sit the Reds down in order. According to Gabriel Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Snitker was pleased with how Minter responded in the ninth inning and expects to use him in more save situations going forward depending on matchups and who is available. "I'm hoping we see (Minter) in it a lot," Snitker said. "That means we're using a lot of guys and doing well in the ninth inning. So I have no problem at all with just going with the matchups and not wearing one guy out."

Braves' Lane Adams: Sent outright to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams cleared waivers Wednesday and was outrighted to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Adams was cast off the 40-man roster last week to clear a spot on the roster for Matt Wisler, but he ultimately didn't garner any interest on the waiver wire. The outfielder now seems to be destined for an organizational depth role for the Braves organization.
