  • Braves' Sean Murphy: Receiving Sunday off

    Murphy is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

    Murphy went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader and will sit Sunday while in the midst of a 3-for-23 slump. Travis d'Arnaud will work behind the plate and bat sixth in the series finale.

  • Braves' Adam Duvall: Taking seat Sunday

    Duvall is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

    The veteran outfielder went 0-for-8 with a strikeout and a run during Saturday's doubleheader and will sit after starting the previous 20 games. Ramon Laureano will start in right field Sunday in Duvall's stead.

  • Braves' Dylan Dodd: Summoned from Triple-A, could start

    Atlanta recalled Dodd from Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday.

    Dodd may be available out of the bullpen for Sunday's series finale with the Cardinals, but Atlanta could elect to stay away from the left-hander so that he can make a start during the club's upcoming three-game series with the Reds this week. Atlanta has an opening in its rotation after Max Fried was surprisingly placed on the 15-day injured list Sunday in a corresponding move due to left forearm neuritis. After turning in a 7.60 ERA over seven starts with the big club in 2023, Dodd has pitched exclusively for Gwinnett thus far in 2024, logging a 4.99 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 76:26 K:BB across 83 innings.

  • Braves' Max Fried: Lands on injured list

    Atlanta placed Fried on the 15-day injured list Sunday, retroactive to July 18, due to left forearm neuritis.

    The 30-year-old was expected to make his first start of the second half in the upcoming series against the Reds early this week, but the forearm issue will instead send him to the injured list. Fried will be eligible to be reinstated in early August, though it wouldn't be surprising if his absence extends beyond that given the nature of the injury. Dylan Dodd was called up from Triple-A Gwinnett in a corresponding move and could have the first crack at filling Fried's rotation spot.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Big power display against Cards

    Ozuna went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader split against the Cardinals.

    After going 1-for-4 in the matinee, Ozuna piled up 855 feet worth of long balls off Sonny Gray in the nightcap, accounting for half of the four homers Atlanta slugged off the right-hander in a losing effort. Ozuna has hit safely in eight straight games, and through 62 plate appearances in July he's slashing .328/.355/.724 with seven home runs and 12 RBI. The 33-year-old needs to go yard twice more in 2024 to record the third 30-homer campaign of his career, and he's on pace to top the career-high 40 he launched just last season.

  • Braves' Eddie Rosario: Goes yard in both ends of twin bill

    Rosario went 3-for-7 with a walk, two home runs and three RBI across both ends of Saturday's doubleheader split with the Cardinals.

    After taking Ryan Fernandez deep in the seventh inning of the matinee for a game-tying two-run blast, Rosario clubbed a solo shot off Sonny Gray in the sixth inning of the nightcap. It was the veteran outfielder's first homers and first RBI in nine games for Atlanta this season, but he's batting just .219 (7-for-32) since returning to the club. With Atlanta's front office rumored to be looking for outfield help at the trade deadline, Rosario may need to heat up quickly if he wants to hang onto a significant role with the club down the stretch.

  • Braves' Bryce Elder: Hit hard in spot start

    Elder (1-4) took the loss in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Cardinals, coughing up six runs on eight hits and a walk over five innings. He struck out nine.

    The nine strikeouts were a season high for Elder, and his highest total since he fanned nine Pirates on Sept. 8 of last season, but Elder also served up homers to Nolan Gorman and Brendan Donovan in a 9-5 victory for the Cardinals. Elder is saddled with a 6.35 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 33:14 K:BB through 39.2 innings over his eight big-league starts in 2024, and he's likely headed back to Triple-A Gwinnett following this outing.

  • Braves' Charlie Morton: Collects quality start Saturday

    Morton came away with a no-decision in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Cardinals, allowing one run on six hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out four.

    The matinee of the twin bill saw a pitchers' duel between two veteran right-handers, as both Morton and Kyle Gibson recorded one-run quality starts in an eventual 3-2 extra-inning win for Atlanta. Morton's quality start was his eighth of the year, but the 40-year-old isn't racking up the Ks like he used to -- he's fanned five batters or less in four of his last five starts, managing a 3.94 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 25:9 K:BB over 29.2 innings during that stretch. He lines up to make his next trip to the mound on the road next week against the Mets.

  • Braves' Bryce Elder: Added as 27th man

    Atlanta added Elder to its roster ahead of his start in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader versus the Cardinals.

    Elder hasn't enjoyed the same success in the majors this season (5.71 ERA) as he had last year (3.81 ERA), but he'll be called upon nonetheless to get Atlanta through the final game of Saturday's twin bill. The 25-year-old right-hander already faced St. Louis earlier this season, taking a loss after allowing two runs in six innings while striking out four batters. He'll likely be sent back to Triple-A Gwinnett following the end of the game.

  • Braves' Sean Murphy: Sitting for matinee

    Murphy isn't in Atlanta's lineup for the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Cardinals.

    Travis d'Arnaud will start behind the plate for the first game of Saturday's twin bill, making Murphy the likely choice to start at catcher during the nightcap.

  • Braves' Bryce Elder: Headed to majors

    Atlanta will recall Elder from Triple-A Gwinnett to start Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Cardinals, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    With Friday's game against St. Louis being pushed back to Saturday due to rain, Elder will join Atlanta for a spot start in the nightcap. The 25-year-old righty owns a 5.71 ERA and 1.62 WHIP through 34.2 innings in the majors this season, though he allowed just two runs in six frames when he started against the Cardinals on June 26.

  • Braves' Spencer Schwellenbach: Friday's start rained out

    Schwellenbach won't start as scheduled Friday against the Cardinals, as the game was postponed due to rain.

    Atlanta and St. Louis will play a doubleheader Saturday. Charlie Morton and Bryce Elder will start during the twin bill, while Schwellenbach will get bumped to Sunday's contest, per Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The 24-year-old allowed four earned runs in five innings while striking out six batters and walking none in a loss the first time he faced the Cards on June 24.

  • Braves' Ian Anderson: Rehab transferred to Triple-A

    Anderson (elbow) will start for Triple-A Gwinnett on Saturday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Saturday's outing will be Anderson's first at the Triple-A level and the fifth start of his rehab stint. The 26-year-old has been recovering from Tommy John surgery he underwent in April 2023 and worked up to 46 pitches in his last rehab outing. Anderson will likely only require one or two more starts before being activated, although it's not clear if Atlanta has a spot for him in the big-league rotation.
