The Braves will open a two-game series against the Yankees on Tuesday, but have yet to name a starting pitcher. Speculation has led many to believe that this signifies the debut of top prospect Ian Anderson, the acquisition of another starter through trade, or that Atlanta will simply opt for a bullpen game. The first two options would obviously be most exciting, but even the beat writers are somewhat perplexed at the moment.

Whatever option the Braves choose, the reality is simple: Max Fried cannot be the only good pitcher on a team that seeks playoff success. Max Fried has been unbelievable this season, but outside of his significant contributions the Braves have nothing but black holes in the rotation. Something has to give, and Tuesday could be the first clue as to how that may happen going forward.
