The #Braves today selected RHP Spencer Strider to Atlanta, recalled LHP Dylan Lee to Atlanta, optioned LHP Sean Newcomb to Triple-A Gwinnett, and placed RHP Edgar Santana on the 10-day injured list, retroactive to September 28, with a strained right intercostal muscle.— Atlanta Braves (@Braves) October 1, 2021
Talking Chop’s Eric Cole was the first to report that Strider would be joining the major league club. It has been remarkable season for Strider who began the season at Low-A and has now advanced all the way to the majors.
