2021 Braves Regular Season Thread


Recommended Posts

  • AUTiger7222 changed the title to 2021 Braves Regular Season Thread

The Braves schedule is so stupid. They play the Mets and Phillies only a combined 6 times in their final 58 games of the season. Those are the last 6 games of the season. So if the Braves are chasing either of those teams down the stretch they're gonna need a lot of outside help.

The Braves won't be chasing them.

Not sure if it was posted but a couple of days ago the Braves did sign Yolmer Sanchez to a minor league deal. So they now have Arcia and Sanchez at the alternate site. Yolmer hit .245/.300/.360 in 7 years with the White Sox. He also won a Gold Glove at 2B in 2019. He led the AL in triples in 2018 with 10. He can play 2B/3B and some SS. Basically he's a speed guy that won't hit much but he's very reliable with the glove and can pressure the defense with his speed. Camargo falls even further out of the Braves plans.

Also brought back Jesse Biddle and Carl Edwards JR.

Just since March, Atlanta has picked up:
Chasen Bradford
Mitch Horacek 
Ryan Casteel
Jeff Mathis
Yolmer Sanchez
Jesse Biddle
Orlando Aricia
Edgar Santana

They've also retained Carl Edwards Jr., Jason Kipnis, Abraham Almonte, and Phil Ervin from spring training. None of these guys may end up making a bit of difference, but it's an interesting stockpile.

Interesting... 

Like they said, Ozuna, Dansby and Pache are legit struggling. I think Ozuna and Dansby will snap out of it at least. Pache may take some time, but I’ve got confidence he’ll be Ight 

This is what I was mentioning yesterday. I caught some flak on Twitter for pointing out Ozuna's struggles and people trying to say Ozzie was doing worse than Ozuna and I was like nope, Ozzie is hitting the ball hard but into some bad luck. Ozzie's exit velocity is much higher than his career mark. But Ozuna, Dansby and Pache are really struggling right now.

Acuna is on pace to hit 51 HR right now. He might challenge that record

Yep, just wanna make sure to point out this is Atlanta era only records and not franchise records. But the 51 homeruns are both an Atlanta era record and a franchise record.

Atlanta Braves right fielder Ronald Acuña Jr. is the NL Player of the Week. Acuña hit .385/.515/.846 with 3 home runs, 10 hits, 13 runs scored, 8 RBI, 7 walks, and a stolen base. 


In further good Acuña news, the Braves have announced that he had an MRI and is listed as day to day with a mild abdominal strain. The Braves have not made any roster moves, and it doesn't look like they will.

The #Braves today reinstated LHP Sean Newcomb from the injured list, recalled RHP Edgar Santana to Atlanta and transferred RHP Mike Soroka to the 60-day IL. The club optioned RHP Bryse Wilson and INF Johan Camargo to the alternate training site following last night’s game.
