Headed west!

The Atlanta Braves’ homestand ended in a washout Thursday as the series finale was postponed due to unplayable conditions at Truist Park. The Braves and Rockies played through a persistent rain storm Wednesday night and the field soaked up a lot of water. That presents a pretty big scheduling problem for Major League Baseball as Atlanta and Colorado don’t have another mutual off day between them. That means that Thursday’s game is likely to be played on October 4 which would be the day after the 2021 regular season is scheduled to end. The game will likely only be played if it has a direct bearing on the NL East or Wild Card standings.

The Braves will now head out west for an 11-game, 10-day trip that will take them to San Francisco, Arizona and San Diego. Brian Snitker said Thursday that the team will push Ian Anderson to Friday’s series opener against the Giants. Charlie Morton and Max Fried will follow on Saturday and Sunday.

Martin has been out since September 2 with what was called forearm inflammation. He made one rehab appearance with Gwinnett before being activated.
