Holmes goes on DL with inflamed nerve

ajc.com | Braves | Braves Notebook

The Braves called up Joey Dawley to take his place. I really didn’t expect to see Dawley again, but he’s on the 40-man and he’s been pitching well enough in Richmond. Holmes is eligible to return May 17, but I have no idea how this thing will work out.

  1. Haha, that’s funny. What’s even funnier is we don’t have a better option than Joey Dawley to replace him, being on the 40-man roster or not. I’m pissing myself here…

  2. Mac, I think it’s time to do a whole post on Scheurholz’s moves with the pitching staff. Moss is 5-0 with a minuscule ERA, Millwood is 5-1 with a no-hitter. Glavine is his usual stellar first-half self, though I expect a second-half slump worse than last year.

    I said at the time that while I wished we could keep everybody, the one you had to keep was Millwood. I also thought the Moss-Ortiz was a bad deal, and it seems I was right.

    On the plus side, the Hampton gamble seems to be possibly working out. While I know you hate the Byrd signing, that’s one that made sense at the time and looks bad because of unforeseen injuries.

    I gotta believe that Jason Marquis REALLY pissed somebody off.

    I thik plety of people had caveats about teh Byrd signing at the time,a nd much of it was on injury risk – a guy coming off a fairly lucky season (in terms of his on balls in play), who;d just pitched a career high in innings, and who’d had pain down the stretch last year. All of that added up to bad news.

    The Moss/Ortiz thing bothered me. I did expect Moss to return to earth this year based on last year’s peripherals; but, I also expected Ortiz to see his numbers take a hit from leaving that ballpark. So overall, I expected them to eb about the same.

    One other thing, though, on Moss – he’s now allowed 62 baserunners in 42 innings.

  5. Paul Byrd should have come with flashing warning lights and a giant sign that he was fragile. Last year was his only year over 200 IP and he cratered down the stretch. Rumor and speculation had it that he was damaged goods. He had one previous heavy workload — 199 2/3 IP in 1999 following which resulted he had arm surgery in 2000. He also was on the 60 day DL without surgery for elbow problems in 2001. No pitcher is guaranteed to be healthy; Paul Byrd was simply much more likely to get hurt than is a normal hurler.
