When you’re going up against the son of God, you better come prepared to ask forgiveness after 9. However, before we get to the matchup, we need to take a look at how Dylan Dodd got to be an MLB player again.

The writing was on the wall after Kyle Wright showed the world his angry face, which, in turn, could’ve just been his hurt face. 2 innings in, he was out and the diagnosis is shoulder inflammation. This should not come as a surprise to any Braves fan that has frequented this bar since spring training as Wright had a cortisone shot for shoulder inflammation prior to the season. My guess is he’s out for a month, at the least, and that is a blow for this team. Braves beatwriter Justin Toscano gives us an update, which is pretty vague so take it for what it’s worth.

Jesus, Not Christ, Jesus Luzardo toes the rubber for the Marlins tonight. He’s carrying a 3.48 ERA through 6 games with an outstanding 10.2 K/9 and 2.9 BB/9. The Braves have their work cut out for them… and so does Jesus.

Since Dylan Dodd was demoted, he’s been plagued with walks, allowing 8 in 14.2 innings. However, he’s also struck out 16. However, when it comes to cusp guys like him being sent down, it’s important to take into consideration that they’re likely working on one flaw and the process, not the results, is what matters.

Dylan Dodd Loves His Braves Lineup

Captain Obvious here, but Michael Harris II is out of the lineup, but not on the IL which is likely good news. If it were more serious, my guess is we’d have had an update by now. Brian Snitker said he’d sit today so sit he shall.
