2020 Atlanta Braves Player Reviews: Robbie Erlin

The Robbie Erlin experience was hardly a source of happiness for Braves fans in 2020. The left-hander was signed for depth and quickly became a necessary experiment for Atlanta as their rotation options dwindled.

After that start, he would allow 18 runs over his next five appearances. Erlin would make four more starts for the Braves but wouldn’t last longer than four innings and allowed at least two runs in each of his appearances. He was released by the club on August 14.

2020 Atlanta Braves Player Reviews: Chris Rusin

Despite the abbreviated schedule, remembering the lone appearance of the season from Chris Rusin is still a challenge.

Rusin’s stint with the Braves would include just one appearance on August 3. He would enter in long relief against the Mets and allow six hits, three walks and three runs over 3 1/3 innings. Rusin was designated for assignment on August 4 as the Braves continued to shuffle in some fresh arms for the bullpen. He would clear waivers but would later be released to clear a spot in the player pool.
