Tomorrow, the Braves Roster News will be flowing as 30 will become 28. However, some of the hardest decisions might have been postponed with last night’s injury, which makes 2 days in a row for the Braves team, whose depth is massive but is being challenged early. Also a lingering problem for one of our stars forces another player on the IL, and likely, a return a bit earlier than anticipated.
Braves Roster News: A Guess on who goes when 30 becomes 28…
Alex Jackson seems like a good bet to be sent down after today’s game, and that will get the Braves to 29. Unfortunately for Schebler, he’s just not seeing time with the Braves and with the addition of Markakis, it’s foolhardy to think that anything will change. While Charlie Culberson and Adeiny Hechavarria seem redundant, they’re definitely not going to be viewed that way while Ozzie’s on the shelf. Sorry Scheb, we hardly knew ya.
Braves Roster News: Wither Ender?
The skill that has kept his career thriving is dissipating. Neither Statcast or Fangraphs sees Ender as a plus defender anymore, and that puts a lot of pressure on his offense which has been really poor. How long can the Braves keep an average fielding CFer that’s currently carrying a .600 OPS in the lineup when Cristian Pache is chomping at the bits in the player pool? My guess is not long.
A …different Braves Lineup
Freddie Freeman sits and Culberson gets Ozzie’s ABs as the Braves put their RH smashers in to face Hyun-jin Ryu. People seem upset online about this lineup and I think it rocks (aside from Ender).
Get that W, boys!
