Ya win one. Ya lose one. It’s hardly worth being upset about as Kyle Wright got back on the mound and took another step toward being playoff ready. At this point, it’s hard to see what role Kyle would play in the postseason, especially considering it’s already 9/12 and that likely means he gets, at the most, 3 more starts before the postseason. Hopefully he can find his release point and get back to painting like he did last year.

Jesse Chavez and Ehire Adrianza Nearing Returns

Jesse Chavez and Ehire Adrianza begin rehab assignments in Gwinnett tonight. It’ll be the first game Chavez has played in since his injury on June 14th. Adrianza has been playing in Rome a little over a week with good results and he’s going to be joining Chavez in Gwinnett.

Braves Going to Have Some 40-Man Work this Offseason

As of right now, the Braves have 50 men on their 40-man roster due to 10 players being on the 60-day IL. Those players are Kolby Allard, Nick Anderson, Jesse Chavez, Yonny Chirinos, Daysbel Hernandez, Tyler Matzek, Michael Soroka, Huascar Ynoa, Ehire Adrianza, and Sam Hilliard. My guess is Allard, Anderson, Yonny, Ehire, and Hilliard find homes elsewhere, the Braves signed Chavez back on an MiLB deal (with intention of selecting his contract before the season begins), but that still leaves a ton of players. I’m sure it will work out like it always does, but something to keep an eye on.
