  • Braves' Chris Sale: CIN-ATL postponed

    Sale will not start as scheduled Tuesday against the Reds, as the game was postponed due to inclement weather.

    Atlanta and Cincinnati will play a doubleheader Wednesday to make up for Tuesday's contest, and Sale will get the nod to start Game 2, per David O'Brien of The Athletic. The 35-year-old southpaw has posted a 1.91 ERA and 0.99 WHIP alongside a 41:11 K:BB through 28.1 innings across his last five starts.

  • Braves' Allan Winans: Confirmed for start Wednesday

    Atlanta manager Brian Snitker confirmed Tuesday that Winans will be recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett to start Wednesday versus the Reds, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Winans is taking the rotation spot vacated by the injured Max Fried (forearm). Winans was rocked for seven runs (six earned) over five innings in a spot start with Atlanta earlier this season, but he boasts a 2.74 ERA and 75:22 K:BB across 82 frames in 2024 at Gwinnett. Winans might be needed for additional starts but will need to pitch well to continue seeing opportunities.

  • Braves' Allan Winans: Expected to draw start Wednesday

    Winans is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett to start Wednesday against the Reds, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Atlanta has an opening in its rotation with Max Fried (forearm) out and Winans was spotted at Truist Park on Tuesday, so it's not difficult to connect the dots. The right-hander was torched for seven runs (six earned) over five innings in a spot start with the big club earlier this season, but he's pitched well in 2024 with Gwinnett, holding a 2.74 ERA and 75:22 K:BB across 82 frames. Winans could earn additional starts with Atlanta if he pitches well.

  • Braves' Whit Merrifield: Sitting Tuesday

    Merrifield (finger) is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Reds.

    Merrifield was struck in the finger by a groundball while taking part in defensive drills before Monday's game, and although he was cleared of a fracture, his Atlanta debut will be pushed back. It's unclear if Merrifield will be available off the bench Tuesday.

  • Braves' Sean Murphy: Idle Tuesday

    Murphy is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Reds.

    Murphy is hitless in his last 13 at-bats but has more walks (three) than strikeouts (two) during that stretch. Travis d'Arnaud will catch and bat cleanup Tuesday.

  • Braves' Luke Williams: Recalled from Triple-A

    Atlanta recalled Williams from Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday.

    Williams is taking the roster spot vacated by Austin Riley (personal), who was placed on the paternity list. He could see some reps in the infield while Riley is away but is likely to be sent back down to the minors when the latter returns later this week.

  • Braves' Austin Riley: Officially lands on paternity list

    Atlanta placed Riley on the paternity list Monday.

    Riley was removed from Monday's 4-1 loss to the Reds in the ninth inning after his wife went into labor, and he's now officially on the paternity list as he welcomes a new arrival to the family. He is expected to be back with Atlanta for the start of its series Thursday against the Mets, per David O'Brien of The Athletic. Nacho Alvarez is handling third base Tuesday while Zack Short occupies second base.

  • Braves' Jimmy Herget: Sent out on rehab assignment

    Atlanta sent Herget (shoulder) to the rookie-level Florida Complex League on Tuesday to begin a rehab assignment.

    Herget has been shelved since early June with right shoulder inflammation but is ready for game action. He'll eventually move up to a higher affiliate and will probably need a handful of rehab appearances, given how much time he's missed.

  • Braves' Hurston Waldrep: Ready for rehab assignment

    Atlanta sent Waldrep (elbow) to the rookie-level Florida Complex League on Tuesday to begin a rehab assignment.

    Waldrep is ready for game action after missing more than a month with right elbow inflammation. The young right-hander will eventually move his assignment to Triple-A Gwinnett, and he seems likely to stay there once he's activated from the 15-day injured list, unless Atlanta has an opening in its rotation. Waldrep surrendered 13 runs with a 3:8 K:BB over seven innings in his first two big-league starts before landing on the IL.

  • Braves' Reynaldo Lopez: Allows four runs in loss

    Lopez (7-4) took the loss against the Reds on Monday, allowing four runs on seven hits and two walks with five strikeouts over six innings.

    Lopez allowed more than three earned runs for the first time all season in his second consecutive loss. He generated 13 swinging strikes on 85 pitches but also yielded nine hard-hit balls and saw his ERA rise above 2.00 for the first time this year. The 30-year-old still leads all starting pitchers with a 2.12 ERA to go along with a 1.19 WHIP and 100:36 K:BB across 101.2 innings. He will try to rebound in a road matchup with the Mets this weekend.

  • Braves' Whit Merrifield: Viewed as day-to-day

    Merrifield is considered day-to-day after he had a finger on his right hand struck by an errant groundball while he was taking part in defensive drills prior to Monday's game against the Reds, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Merrifield has been cleared of a fracture, but he may be dealing with some soreness or bruising to the digit. The veteran utility player signed a one-year deal with Atlanta on Monday and is expected to provide depth, particularly at second base behind rookie Nacho Alvarez, once he moves past the finger issue.

  • Braves' Whit Merrifield: Being evaluated for finger injury

    Merrifield is being evaluated by Atlanta's medical staff for a finger injury after being struck in the right hand by a ball while warming up prior to Monday's game against the Reds, Kevin McAlpin of 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.

    Merrifield has yet to play for Atlanta after signing with the club earlier Monday, and he might already be banged up. The veteran utility player wasn't in Atlanta's lineup for Monday's game anyway but had been slated to be available off the bench.

  • Braves' Michael Harris: Not doing sprints yet

    Harris (hamstring) has yet to progress to sprinting, Grant McAuley of 929 The Game reports.

    Harris feels good as he works his way back from a left hamstring strain but is following doctor's orders as he slowly ramps things back up. He will need to show he's able to run at full speed before being cleared for a rehab assignment, and it's uncertain when that might happen. At the very least, Harris will remain out until early August.

  • Braves' Nacho Alvarez: Batting second in MLB debut

    Alvarez will start at second base and bat second Monday versus the Reds in his major-league debut.

    Alvarez is not only filling in for Ozzie Albies (wrist) at second base, he's also assuming Albies' spot in Atlanta's batting order. The 21-year-old infielder earned a call-up after slashing .293/.401/.417 with seven home runs and 21 stolen bases across 334 plate appearances between Double-A Mississippi and Triple-A Gwinnett. Alvarez will need to hold off Whit Merrifield for reps at second base, but he'll get the first crack at the keystone in Albies' absence.

  • Braves' Ramon Laureano: Not seeing regular run upon return

    Laureano is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Reds.

    Since being activated from the 10-day injured list Friday, Laureano has started just once in Atlanta's ensuing four games, with the club facing off against right-handed pitchers in all of those contests. Before hitting the shelf July 10 with an oblique strain that had first cropped up about two weeks earlier, Laureano had been getting regular playing time in right field, but his injury appears to have cost him his starting role. Adam Duvall now appears to be Atlanta's preferred option in right field.
