2 down, 2 to go. It’s Braves and Dodgers Game 3 with Bryce Elder taking one Emmett Sheehan. Sheehan, the Dodgers 6th round pick in the 2021 draft. He carries a high octane FB that averages 95.7, then a slider and a change up. The heater is his bread and butter, but he’s been slapped around in the bigs thus far (5.63 ERA). I’ll not lie, Elder worries me with this lineup but likely no more than a Dodgers fan is worried about Sheehan against this Braves lineup.
Transaction a Day AA
I thought Darius Vines would get the nod again in a few days considering he had such a strong debut, but it’s a hard no from AA. A week back, I made a prediction that Kyle Wright would be back after 2 rehab starts and I’m wondering if that is the plan. Honestly, I hope not. Ben Heller, who’s been lights out at AAA, rejoins the pen to see if he can stick this time.
It’s the A+ lineup tonight and let’s put these suckers down for the count.
Hurston Waldrep is pitching for Mississippi tonight and looks good early on, although he’s walked 3 in 3 innings. I’m still interested to see what AA does with him and if he gets added to the 40-man at some point in September.
