Tucker Davidson turned in another solid performance for the Atlanta Braves Thursday in a win over the Washington Nationals. Brian Snitker confirmed Saturday that Davidson will remain in the rotation for at least one more turn.

“We’re gonna we’re gonna need the fifth guy,” Snitker said when asked about Davidson. “First of the week sometime.”

The clues were there since Davidson wasn’t immediately sent back down. If things stay as they are, he would slot into Wednesday’s start in Philadelphia. Davidson allowed just one hit over 5 2/3 scoreless innings in his last start. He did walk five, but also finished with five strikeouts.

Shane Greene update

The Braves added Jacob Webb to the roster Saturday morning after placing Grant Dayton on the 10-day injured list with shoulder inflammation. They opted not to go with Shane Greene just yet and may give him one more appearance at Gwinnett. Adding Webb gives them a fresh arm for the bullpen for Saturday night

“We’re gonna give him another day and Jake’s good to pitch today,” Snitker said of Greene. “We’re talking about it today and probably talking about it after the game also. He may make one more appearance in Gwinnett.”

Greene allowed two hits, a walk and one run in his most recent outing for Gwinnett. Overall, he has appeared in four games allowing four hits and one run in 4 1/3 innings. He has struck out five and walked two.
