The Braves let one get away last night and Collin McHugh turned into Collin McPugh, giving up 4 runs in 1.1 innings of work. McHugh hasn’t been right for awhile now. He’s carrying a 4.42 ERA since 5/23 and is carrying his 2nd worst K/9 and BB/9 of his career. I thought he’d be a shoo-in for his 2024 $6MM option, but I’m now not so sure that AA will bite. Tonight, Bryce Elder takes the mound against Austin Gomber, a LHP whose scouting report is likely “meh”.

Transaction A Day AA

My favorite player is back! Ozzie Albies, who I think is the real glue between the Latin and American players, is back Darius Vines will, at some point, likely get to make his debut in Colorado, of which I’m sure he’s thrilled about. Vaughn Grissom and Jared Shuster are the active roster casualties and I’m completely ok with that.
