The Braves are back in the ATL, but will be greeted rudely as they face off against Zack Wheeler. Kyle Wright will counter in the first of 3. With 15 games to go, the Braves are 96-53 and have 3 at home vs. PHI, then head to Washington for 4, then end the season at home against the Cubs and the Nats.
Transaction a Day AA
With Dylan Lee getting transferred to the 60-day IL, the Braves need to see what other LH relievers can help contribute in the postseason. Lucas Luetge is the first trial and might be the last as there really isn’t much else out there. Dereck Rodriguez was never long for this roster and he solidified that by throwing like a position player yesterday.
Braves and Phillies Lineup
Ronald Acuna Jr. gets back out there tonight and the Braves are using the lineup that got them here. It’d be pretty wild for the Braves to have a regular 1-9 with 20+ HRs. With 15 games left, can Orlando Arcia smack 3 and Michael Harris II 2? It would be way cool. Has it ever happened? JF, you’re up.
