The Braves made several additions at the Trade Deadline, supplementing a roster in dire need of depth. The club has quickly enjoyed the fruits of their endeavors, with Jorge Soler and Adam Duvall each providing offensive firepower to a lineup that was scuffling. In addition, Richard Rodriguez has notched three scoreless innings for the Atlanta bullpen. Alex Anthopoulos has been a lightning rod for criticism for much of the season, but early returns on his deadline strategy have been outstanding. Soler in particular has been a revelation and has even filled in nicely in the outfield. These three plus Eddie Rosario will be keys to the stretch run for Atlanta.
The Braves have a winning streak. It really happened, and now they have an opportunity to sweep the Cardinals. Is this the hot streak we have been waiting for all season?
The Braves seemingly have an army awaiting their return injury, with multiple players out on rehab assignments at the moment. Two more will join those ranks soon, as Ian Anderson will start for Gwinnett on Thursday and Eddie Rosario will begin a rehab assignment shortly thereafter.
The 2022 schedule is out. The series that caught my eye will take place in mid-July, with the Angels visiting Atlanta for a weekend series. A healthy Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani would be a welcome sight.
Dansby Swanson has been very hot of late, and continued his hot-hitting with a four-hit effort on Wednesday. Stephen takes a look at what makes this recent run so impressive.
The Braves keep hanging around, which means they can win this division, writes Mark Bradley.
Alright Javy, that’s enough. Go back to striking out.
Teams are still paying Cole Hamels.
I do not miss seeing this guy in Washington, but I do miss seeing him healthy.
