Atlanta Braves bullpen: Trade options abound but could be costly

The Atlanta Braves roll along, winning games with late-inning magic but the bullpen’s displayed some late-inning vulnerabilities. Last week’s acquisition (theft) of Kelvin Herrera by the Washington Nationals generated a series of how will the Atlanta Braves respond posts. That’s not a hard question to answer, they’ll stick with their plan.

Braves restore order to universe, beat Orioles 7-3

For once, things went somewhat as they should have as the Braves salvaged the final game of the series.

Things did not go according to plan on Friday and Saturday, but the Braves restored a small semblance of order to the universe on Sunday afternoon with a 7-3 defeat of the Baltimore Orioles.

The Braves jumped all over David Hess (as they should have), held Chris Davis to an 0-for-4 line (as expected), and even hit a home run for the first time in the series, courtesy of Dansby Swanson’s...

Introducing The Newest Braves Pitcher Evan Phillips

Evan Phillips has been the most dominant reliever in the Braves system this season and has earned himself a call up to Atlanta.

The Braves made the decision to call up Gwinnett reliever Evan Phillips to bolster a struggling and tired bullpen. Many have called for Phillips to be promoted over the last month as he has dominated for Gwinnett, and he could be a strong addition to the Braves relief corp. Evan was originally drafted in the 17th round back in 2015 out of the University of North...

The Braves (finally) call up Evan Phillips, Arodys Vizcaino headed to the DL

After taking their time to evaluate the bullpen and 40 man roster, the Braves finally made the move to bring up one of their more promising relief prospects. The Braves’ bullpen has been struggling as of late to say the least. Arodys Vizcaino has an ailing shoulder, Dan Winkler has had some rough outings lately, and it feels like every time Sam Freeman and Peter Moylan take the mound that the game turns into a bit of an adventure. That is not to say that the bullpen has been completely...

Braves try to avoid ignoble sweep behind McCarthy

The Braves weren’t able to hit Alex Cobb, but maybe they’ll be able to hit a far worse David Hess. It’s unavoidable, it’s already happened: the Braves have lost a series to the Baltimore Orioles, the worst team in baseball. Actually, that’s not even true anymore: with their two consecutive wins over the Braves, the Orioles have surpassed the Royals and are now only baseball’s second-worst team. You’re welcome, Orioles.

Too little, too late for the Braves in second straight loss to the Orioles

The Braves made an attempt to come back late but the deficit was too much.

As hard as last night’s game was the action in the first inning today was not much better. The Orioles first three batters reached on two walks and a double which loaded the bases in front of Mark Trumbo who proceeded to punch a ball over the center field wall for a grand slam to put the Orioles up 4-0 before ever even posting an out.

Teheran snaked his way through the bottom of the Orioles lineup to get the Braves...
