The Braves managed a split against the Mets on Monday.

Kyle Muller got the start for Atlanta in the first game of the doubleheader on Monday and was outstanding. The left-hander one run on one “hit” that should have been ruled an error on Guillermo Heredia, but regardless of the final line, Muller was impressive. His ability to command his arsenal was a big question mark entering the season, but this start showcased his immense potential. The Braves’ rotation depth has been tested already this season so having Muller fill in, even if temporarily, could be a huge help in what will certainly be a crucial stretch.
