22 hours ago Braves News: AJ Smith-Shawver sharp in debut, Pittsburgh pitching probables, and more
Photo by Michael Reaves/Getty Images Atlanta Braves news and notes from Thursday. AJ Smith-Shawver and the Atlanta Braves shutout the Chicago Cubs on Thursday with a 3-0 final. It was Smith-Shawver’s first big league start of the season, and he came up huge to contribute to the Braves’ series win. 4.1 IP, 3 H, 2 BB, 4 K, 87 pitches.Solid 2024 season debut for AJ Smith-Shawver. pic.twitter.com/Pi5Pzsec55— Bally Sports: Braves (@BravesOnBally) May 23, 2024 He threw 87 pitches in 4.1 scoreless innings. He struck out four, surrendered two walks, and three hits. The now 21-year-old appeared in six big league games last season before beginning this season in the minors. He’s had a tough season in Triple-A thus far, but luckily, those numbers didn’t carry into his big league appearance Thursday. More Braves News: The Braves continue the roadtrip in the form of a three game set against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Reynaldo Lopez, Chris Sale, and a pitcher yet to be determined are each penciled in to start a game. While AJ Smith-Shawver was recalled to Atlanta, the Braves optioned right-hander Daysbel Hernández back to Gwinnett. Hernández was just recalled to Atlanta on May 20. Spencer Schwellenbach turned in a remarkable seven inning outing on Wednesday. More in the minor league recap. Austin Riley was able to throw across the diamond ahead of Thursday’s matchup in Chicago. He appears to be nearing his return. Braves Podcasts: MLB News: Chicago White Sox outfielder Eloy Jimènez will miss an “extended period of time” after suffering a hamstring injury on Tuesday. The club had already placed him on the 10-day injured list. The New York Mets claimed right-hander Ty Adcock off waivers from the Detroit Tigers and optioned him to Triple-A Syracuse. The Tigers designated him for assignment on Saturday. The Baltimore Orioles placed left-hander John Means on the 15-day injured list with a forearm strain. There is not yet a timetable for his return. The Texas Rangers placed pitcher Jon Gray on the injured list with a mild right groin strain. The move is another blow to the Rangers’ pitching staff. Chicago Cubs manager Craig Counsell announced that right-hander Adbert Alzolay will be out for at least two more weeks. Alzolay suffered a flexor strain on May 13. Houston and Miami are among parks that will host the 2026 World Baseball Classic.

1 day ago Takeaways from the Braves’ series win at Wrigley Field
Photo by Michael Reaves/Getty Images The Braves didn’t exactly break out offensively, but pitching carried the day once again in a series win The Atlanta Braves did this week what they also did last week: take a series from the Chicago Cubs. In Atlanta, they won the first two games and got blown out when they couldn’t finish off a sweep; at Wrigley Field, they dropped the first game and took the next two. Pitching remains a strength Overall, the Braves did what they’ve done to rack up wins even as the bats have struggled to get the results they were hoping for: keep the opposing team off the board. Charlie Morton got blown out in the finale against the Cubs in Atlanta, but bounced back with a nice outing where he struck out eight in five innings and kept the ball in the yard. Sure, he walked four, but he also kept things manageable despite spotty defense behind him. The Braves ended up losing the game, but mostly due to a lack of scoring and some strange reliever choices. Max Fried then threw a complete game in an eventual blowout, going 15-up, 15-down to start and finishing with a stellar 9/0 K/BB ratio. The Braves followed that with a well-managed and even-better-pitched game where AJ Smith-Shawver and five relievers combined to shut the Cubs out while striking out nine and walking just three. Smith-Shawver was fortunate to get some big outs on fly balls in sequences where the defense and/or his command caused the water to get a little hotter, but was ultimately effective across 18 batters faced. The bullpen, meanwhile, was allowed to do what they weren’t really deployed for in the series opener, and locked it down from there. With today’s effort, the Braves have now clambered into the top ten among MLB teams by pitching fWAR. Their pitching triple-slash line is 80/94/93, marks which are fourth, sixth, and fifth, respectively. They’ve been a top-five pitching staff over the last two weeks (not counting today) as well as over the last month. Max Fried is Max Good Okay, maybe not max good, but really good, again! After his complete game on Wednesday, Fried now has a 82/90/85 line — his career line is 71/79/79. That’s mighty impressive considering that he started the season with a very ugly 188/130/110 in four starts. Since then? He’s had two complete games (one Maddux), two no-hit outings, and a couple of so-so outings, combining for 42/75/76. With Fried hitting 1.0 fWAR thanks to his last start, the Braves are now one of seven teams in baseball with at least three starters at or above that threshold. (Unsurprisingly, the Phillies are the only team with four.) A rare lapse with runners in scoring position (yes, you read that right) You might be hard-pressed to believe anything that links the Braves and “situational hitting” positively, especially after Tuesday night’s horrific loss where the Braves ended up losing on an extra-innings chopper despite outhomering the Cubs and clogging the bases seemingly every inning, but it’s true! The Braves came into the series finale with a 123 wRC+ with runners in scoring position, good for seventh-best in MLB. Why is that impressive? Well, their wRC+ is only 109 on the season (also seventh-best). By Baseball-Reference’s OPS+ measure, they’re hitting 15 percent better with RISP than their overall line, and 14 percent better than the league in that situation. By comparison, last year, they actually hit 17 percent better than league with RISP... but four percent worse than their overall line. While they were better in this regard in 2021 (19 percent and 18 percent better, respectively), they were comparatively unimpressive with RISP in the other seasons. There’s two ways to think about this — I found this surprising (and keep in mind these stats are after Tuesday’s debacle), but as Kris pointed out to me: this kind of has to be the case this season, or else they’d be scoring basically zero runs every game.

1 day ago Space Queen brings bright vintage to Candler Park
It’s impossible not to notice the bright exterior at the corner of Oakdale Road and McLendon Avenue in Candler Park. Painted saturated tones of purple, pink, and green, the building formerly housed a gas station, thrift store, and, most recently, a Hungarian bakery pop-up in the driveway. The striking makeover is courtesy of Space Queen, a new vintage retail concept and community arts center from Michelle Norris and Forrest Aguar, the duo behind creative studio Tropico Photo. The post Space Queen brings bright vintage to Candler Park appeared first on Atlanta Magazine.
