Kyle Wright made the Opening Day roster

Postby zhangzk » Fri May 17, 2019 10:31 pm

In a season that figures to feature a lot of pitcher shuffling between the major league club and Triple-A Gwinnett Ubaldo Jimenez Jersey , the Braves have made a move:Both Kyle Wright and Touki Toussaint made their major league debuts in 2018, but Wright was chosen to start the year in Atlanta’s rotation given injuries to other players. Unfortunately for him, he didn’t fare very well, allowing 11 runs in 14 innings of work across three starts. The season started poorly for him as he was devoured by the Phillies (4/5 K/BB ratio, three runs, didn’t make it out of the fifth, allowed a homer), rebounded somewhat against the Marlins (4/1 K/BB ratio, two runs, six innings, but both runs came on homers) Joey Rickard Jersey , and then got much worse last night against the Mets, as he yielded six runs while getting just 11 outs, with a once-again-below-1 K/BB ratio (3 strikeouts, 4 walks) and another homer allowed. His line was made worse by being hung out to dry the third time through the lineup against a bevy of lefties, but he hadn’t fared well up to that point either.Kyle Wright finishes his first big league stint of 2019 with an ugly 7.07 / 7.63 / 5.93 pitching triple-slash (ERA/FIP/xFIP). He’ll work on his craft or just bide his time in Triple-A Gwinnett, though hopefully the former, until the Braves need him once again.Touki Toussaint, meanwhile, made five starts and two other relief appearances down the stretch last year, and even made Atlanta’s playoff roster. But, command was an issue throughout his appearances , as he walked an unlivable 17 percent of all batters he faced. He didn’t make the Opening Day roster and has had just one appearance at Gwinnett so far, where he issued four walks in three innings of work. He’ll presumably work out of Atlanta’s bullpen for the time being.This move deepens Atlanta’s relief corps, which might be a little drained despite Wednesday’s unexpected offday after using four relievers on Thursday and five on Friday in two games that weren’t particularly close. Toussaint may be sent back down to the minors if and when the Braves activate Mike Foltynewicz from the Injured List. A look at what’s happening around the majors Wednesday:MOVING ONThe Red Sox are set for a postseason rematch with the World Series champion Astros. Boston eliminated the Yankees with a dramatic 4-3 victory Tuesday night in Game 4 of their AL Division Series, and now rookie manager Alex Cora and his club will wait until Saturday night to open the AL Championship Series against Houston at Fenway Park. Ace lefty Chris Sale figures to get the ball after making an impressive turn in a setup role for the eighth inning Tuesday. It’ll also mark a reunion for Cora and the Astros — he was the bench coach during their championship run last season.“I’ve been talking about them the whole season, so now we go,” Cora said. “Best of seven. They know me. I know them. It should be fun.”The Yankees, meanwhile, begin an offseason that’s sure to bring a few changes. CC Sabathia, Brett Gardner, David Robertson and J.A. Happ can become free agents, and New York could be major a player in an anticipated free agent market that will likely include Manny Machado Tim Beckham Jersey , Bryce Harper, Patrick Corbin, Dallas Keuchel and possibly even Clayton Kershaw. The Yankees have lost four straight postseason home games to the Red Sox, and now they’ll watch on TV as Boston chases a fourth World Series title in 15 years — New York has just one pennant and championship during that span (2009).STAY OR GO?Braves manager Brian Snitker expects to find out this week whether general manager Alex Anthopolous will bring him back. Snitker is not yet under contract for 2019, though there’s nothing to indicate he won’t return for his third full year at the helm — especially after a season that makes him one of the leading candidates for NL manager of the year. Still, Anthopolous met with Snitker and the coaching staff Tuesday and didn’t make any promises.“Until something gets done … I understand that you’re never guaranteed tomorrow,” said Snitker, who turns 63 next week. “I don’t know. I know I’d like to (return). I enjoyed it. I love that group in there. I like being around ’em. That group in there is awesome. I’ve got a few more years in me.”NOT A HITSan Diego is hunting for a new hitting coach a day after firing Matt Stairs. The rebuilding Padres continued to rank at or near the bottom of the majors in key offensive stats in their first year under Stairs. His replacement will be the Padres’ 10th hitting coach since Petco Park opened in 2004. While saying he felt Stairs did a good job with mostly younger players, general manager A.J. Preller said he and manager Andy Green decided that the team needed a different approach. The team is expected to promote someone from within the organization.
