  5. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Corey Kluber

    It’s Corey Kluber’s world. We’re all just living in it. We had no idea we were, though, because most of us don’t pay a heck of a lot of attention to Corey Kluber. Like, how are we supposed to know it’s his world anyway? What are we, psychic? Put up a sign.

  6. Settling the Score: Saturday’s results

    Aaron Harang was far from dominant and Andrelton Simmons made a rare pair of bad errors at shortstop, but the Braves produced 10 runs on 14 hits Saturday to beat the Diamondbacks. It was the ninth win in a row for Atlanta — the top dog in the National League East by 1 1/2 games.

  7. Evan Gattis left the game with back spasms last night

    He’s day-to-day. At least that’s what the Braves hope.

    Marlins catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia has been activated from the disabled list after missing a little over two weeks with a concussion. He will catch Andrew Heaney on Thursday in the 23-year-old top prospect’s major league debut.

  10. The Braves are considering calling up Christian Bethancourt

    Jun 16, 2014, 10:32 AM EDT

    Screen Shot 2014-06-16 at 10.31.22 AM

    He’s a catcher. And Evan Gattis’ bat is essential. So that would make Gattis an outfielder. At least in name.

  13. B.J. Upton got glasses

    Apr 25, 2014, 5:02 PM EDT

    B.J. Upton

    Worst case scenario: he’ll see his strikeouts as clearly as we all do.

    Don’t look at me that way. It’s late afternoon on a Friday that a lot of people have off work. There’s a Reds-Cubs game one. Motivation is kinda hard to come by. Besides, this is kinda mesmerizing.

    Dan Uggla

    The Braves-Phillies game was GONZO with a capital X. In no small part because Dan Uggla was the hero.

    Victor Martinez

    I saw Captain America last night. It was way better than the first few innings of the Tigers-Dodgers game.

    Kemp Ramirez

    Matt Kemp and Hanley Ramirez each went yard twice. And I contemplate the return of the game-winning RBI stat.

  23. VIDEO: B.J. Upton made an impressive throw

    Apr 6, 2014, 9:37 AM EDT

    Braves outfielder B.J. Upton is 3-for-21 with 11 strikeouts this season, but he went 2-for-5 with a double on Saturday night against the Nationals and also unleashed this perfect throw from center field to cut down Jose Lobaton at home plate in the bottom of the fifth inning …

  24. B.J. Upton, Dan Uggla not exactly knocking anyone’s socks off this spring

    Mar 8, 2014, 10:50 PM EDT

    B.J. Upton

    Outfielder B.J. Upton and second baseman Dan Uggla had miserable 2013 campaigns for the Braves, finishing with a .557 and .671 OPS, respectively. Both players finished with batting averages well under the Mendoza Line with 150-plus strikeouts. It was ugly. As the Braves flipped the calendar over to 2014, there was a sense of optimism…
