  • Braves' Jarred Kelenic: On base three times in win

    Kelenic went 2-for-5 with a walk, a run scored and an RBI in Friday's win over the Yankees.

    He extended his hitting streak to eight games with another strong performance. Over 16 games in June, Kelenic is slashing .288/.333/.492 with three doubles, three homers, two steals, seven runs and seven RBI, and the 24-year-old has provided a spark for Atlanta since moving into the leadoff spot.

  • Braves' Ozzie Albies: Flashes power Friday

    Albies went 2-for-5 with a walk, a double, a two-run home run and a second run scored in Friday's win over the Yankees.

    The second baseman had a sluggish start to the season, but he appears to be heating up along with the weather. Over the last nine games, Albies is batting .308 (12-for-39) with four doubles, a triple, two homers, seven RBI and 10 runs scored while hitting second in the order behind Jarred Kelenic.

  • Braves' A.J. Minter: Beginning assignment

    Minter (hip) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Rome on Saturday.

    Minter has been on the injured list since the end of May due to left hip inflammation, but he has now been given the green light to return to a competitive setting. It's unclear how long the 30-year-old southpaw will remain in the minors, but it shouldn't take long for him to build back up as a reliever. He currently owns a 2.95 ERA and 0.98 WHIP through 21.1 innings on the year, and he will likely reprise his role as Atlanta's main setup man upon returning to the big-league bullpen.

  • Braves' Ramon Laureano: Bangs out three doubles Friday

    Laureano went 3-for-5 with three doubles and an RBI in Friday's 8-1 win over the Yankees.

    Making his fourth start since joining the Atlanta roster, Laureano played a key role in an offensive explosion that saw the NL East squad rack up eight extra-base hits on the night. The 29-year-old has gone 6-for-17 (.353) in his new uniform with a homer in addition to Friday's barrage of two-baggers, but a 0:5 BB:K suggests the contact issues that have plagued his big-league career haven't gone away.

  • Braves' Austin Riley: Stays hot Friday

    Riley went 2-for-4 with two walks, a solo home run and a second run scored in Friday's 8-1 win over the Yankees.

    The 27-year-old slugger has flipped the switch in June. Riley has at least one extra-base hit in six of his last seven games, batting a blistering .545 (12-for-22) over that stretch with four doubles, four homers, nine runs and nine RBI. After a rough, injury-plagued start to the season, the power surge has pushed his slash line up to .251/.324/.420.

  • Braves' Matt Olson: Clubs 12th homer

    Olson went 2-for-5 with a t wo-run home run and a second run scored in Friday's 8-1 win over the Yankees.

    His fourth-inning shot off Carlos Rodon helped chase the southpaw from the game as part of a three-homer, eight-XBH barrage from Atlanta. Olson's bat has come alive in June, and through 74 plate appearances on the month he's slashing .309/.365/.574 with four of his 12 long balls on the year and 10 of his 40 RBI.

  • Braves' Chris Sale: Fans eight Yankees for win No. 10

    Sale (10-2) picked up the win Friday, allowing one run on one hit and three walks over five innings in an 8-1 victory over the Yankees. He struck out eight.

    A Jahmai Jones triple in the second inning was the only knock on Sale's line as the veteran lefty fanned at least seven batters for the eighth time in nine starts since the beginning of May. Over that stretch, he's posted a 2.45 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 74:9 K:BB through 55 innings en route to becoming the third pitcher in the majors this season to reach double-digit wins, after the Phillies' Ranger Suarez and the Royals' Seth Lugo. Sale will look to keep rolling in his next outing, which lines up to come on the road next week in St. Louis.

  • Braves' Forrest Wall: Sitting again

    Wall isn't part of the starting lineup Friday against the Yankees.

    Wall will give way to Adam Duvall in left field for a second straight game. Jarred Kelenic and Ramon Laureano fill in the rest of the outfield.

  • Braves' Reynaldo Lopez: Another scoreless outing

    Lopez (5-2) earned the win Wednesday over the Tigers, allowing seven hits and a walk over five innings. He struck out six.

    It's the second straight scoreless outing for Lopez, though he failed to make it through six innings for just the second time in his last six starts. The 30-year-old right-hander lowered his ERA to a remarkable 1.57 with a 1.08 WHIP and 76:23 K:BB across 74.1 innings this year. Lopez is currently lined up for a road matchup with the Cardinals early next week in his next start.

  • Braves' Sean Murphy: Breaks out with two homers

    Murphy went 4-for-4 with a pair of two-run homers and three total runs scored in Wednesday's 7-0 win over the Tigers.

    Murphy extended Atlanta's lead to 3-0 in the third inning with a two-run blast off Tarik Skubal before cranking a second two-run homer in the fifth off Mason Englert. It's the first multi-hit game of the year for Murphy, who was batting just .135 with a lone homer through his first 15 games this season. Perhaps Wednesday's outburst is a sign of things to come for the 29-year-old backstop -- Murphy posted an .843 OPS with 21 homers across 438 plate appearances last year.

  • Braves' Jesse Chavez: Thriving in low-leverage role

    Chavez has a 1.21 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 24:10 K:BB through 29.2 innings over 23 appearances this season.

    The 40-year-old right-hander is on his fourth stint with Atlanta during his 17-year career, and Chavez is once again proving to be a valuable piece of the team's bullpen. His low-leverage role limits his fantasy value -- he has zero saves or holds, and his only win came back on March 30 -- but he's worked more than an inning in four of his last seven appearances, helping to keep the team's higher-leverage options fresh.

  • Braves' Forrest Wall: Resting against righty

    Wall is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Tigers.

    After being called up from Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday, Wall started in left field in both of the first two games of the series versus Detroit and went 2-for-5 with an RBI. Atlanta looks as though it'll give the lefty-hitting Wall a look as a strong-side platoon player in the corner outfield, but he'll head to the bench Wednesday in favor of Ramon Laureano while the Tigers bring southpaw Tarik Skubal to the hill.

  • Braves' Raisel Iglesias: Converts on 19th save

    Iglesias picked up the save Tuesday against Detroit, throwing a perfect inning with one strikeout.

    Iglesias is now 19-for-21 on save chances this season and holds the fourth-most saves in baseball. Tuesday's outing was a strong rebound after allowing a two-run homer and taking the loss Sunday against Tampa Bay. Overall, Iglesias owns a 2.60 ERA across 27.2 innings.

  • Braves' Spencer Schwellenbach: Nabs first career win

    Schwellenbach (1-2) earned the win Tuesday, allowing one run on three hits and two walks across six innings against the Tigers. He struck out seven.

    Schwellenbach logged a second straight quality start and set a career high in strikeouts en route to his first big-league win. The lone run against Schwellenbach came in the sixth inning, when Riley Greene hit a leadoff triple and scored on a Gio Urshela single later in the inning. While Schwellenbach owns a 4.98 ERA through four starts with Atlanta, his ERA is inflated by a six-run shelling at the hands of the the Red Sox on June 5. He's lined up to face the Cardinals in St. Louis on Monday.
