    Evan Gattis was the Braves’ only source of offense this afternoon against Cole Hamels in the series finale in Philadelphia. The Braves scored two runs on two hits, both Gattis solo home runs — one in the second inning, and one in the seventh, giving him 18 on the season. The Phillies scored twice in…

    Brandon Beachy

    Some good news for the Braves: no structural damage was found in Brandon Beachy‘s elbow when he went to visit Dr. James Andrews on Monday. “He confirmed what I’ve been hoping,” Beachy told Carroll Rogers of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “He just thought it was inflamed, a lot of fluid in there. The ligament is intact…

  4. Report: Braves claimed Kyle Lohse earlier this month

    Aug 24, 2013, 8:30 PM EDT

    Kyle Lohse

    It’s old news that right-hander Kyle Lohse was claimed on waivers and then pulled back without a trade, but it wasn’t known who tried to pluck him away from the Brewers. FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal revealed today that it was the Braves who made the claim. Lohse would have been pretty much the perfect replacement for…

    Brandon Beachy

    As if the Braves hadn’t gotten enough bad news in the last day, Brandon Beachy, who returned from Tommy John surgery last month, will see Dr. James Andrews next week after experiencing a setback. According to David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Beachy underwent an MRI on Wednesday, the results of which the Braves…

    The first-place Braves haven’t missed Paul Maholm much since he landed on the disabled list last month with a bruised left wrist, but he’s on track to rejoin the starting rotation soon. Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports that Maholm made it through a simulated game this afternoon with no issues. The next step will be…

  8. Winners and losers at the trade deadline

    Jul 31, 2013, 5:50 PM EDT

    Jake Peavy

    Given how disappointing this afternoon’s trade deadline proved to be, it’s only fair that the annual winners and losers column is a little lopsided. Let’s get right to it: Winners Red Sox: I didn’t like the idea of Boston giving up top prospects for Jake Peavy because I just didn’t see him being a big…

  9. Are the Braves OK without Tim Hudson?

    Jul 25, 2013, 11:32 AM EDT

    Tim Hudson was, quite obviously, placed on the disabled list this morning. Paul Maholm is getting DL’d too. With their two eldest starting pitchers going down, do the Braves need some rotation help? Not necessarily. Brandon Beachy is done with his rehab assignment and is coming back, so he’ll fill a slot. Alex Wood, who…

  10. Paul Maholm goes on disabled list with wrist injury

    Jul 22, 2013, 4:49 PM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Paul Maholm exited Sunday’s start in the fourth inning with a left wrist injury and the Braves have placed him on the disabled list with what they’re calling a contusion. Maholm was excellent for the Braves in the second half last season after coming over in a trade from the Cubs and as of June…

  11. Paul Maholm exits start with sprained left wrist

    Jul 20, 2013, 6:45 PM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Paul Maholm had an ugly afternoon against the White Sox, surrendering a first-pitch grand slam to Alex Rios in the third inning, then exiting with an arm injury in the fourth inning after putting the first two batters he faced on base. David O’Brien points out that Maholm pointed to his lower left arm before…

  12. Brandon Beachy will not start on Tuesday, after all

    Jun 14, 2013, 11:20 PM EDT

    Brandon Beachy Getty

    The Braves had been internally debating for a while what to do when Brandon Beachy is activated from the disabled list. Would they use the 26-man rule to use him for Tuesday’s double-header against the Mets, and then figure it out in a week? Would they move Kris Medlen to the bullpen? Or attempt to…

  13. Braves face tough decision when Brandon Beachy returns

    Brandon Beachy hasn’t pitched since June 16 last season. He felt soreness in his right elbow and subsequently underwent Tommy John surgery, ending his season and significantly cutting into his 2013 hopes. Nearly a full year later, though, Beachy is nearing a return. He has made two rehab starts with Triple-A Gwinnett spanning nine innings,…

    Cubs prospect Arodys Vizcaino won’t pitch in 2013. Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune reports that the 22-year-old underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow this week to clear out a calcium buildup and has been ruled out for the remainder of the 2013 campaign. Vizcaino had Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery last March and…

  15. Danny Espinosa has been playing with a broken wrist since April

    May 24, 2013, 5:02 PM EDT

    Danny Espinosa, Allen Craig

    Since that series against the Braves, specifically. The one in which he said he wasn’t impressed by them. Guess he meant it, because one of the Braves pitchers broke his friggin’ wrist and he apparently didn’t take notice of it: Source: #Nats 2b Danny Espinosa‘s right wrist was broken when Paul Maholm hit him with…

  16. The Braves are regressing badly

    May 4, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    Washington Nationals v Atlanta Braves

    The Braves were 12-1 after their victory over the Royals on April 16. They had just rattled off ten consecutive wins, due to an incredibly potent offense and unhittable pitching. The Braves hit three or more home runs in three of their first five games with Justin Upton hitting one just about every night. In…

  17. Pirates end Paul Maholm’s scoreless inning streak

    Apr 20, 2013, 9:05 PM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Paul Maholm entered tonight’s start against the Pirates with a 0.00 ERA and 20.1 consecutive scoreless innings over three starts. The lefty took his streak into the sixth inning until it was finally snapped on an Andrew McCutchen RBI double. Gaby Sanchez followed it up with a two-run home run to give the Pirates a…

    Washington Nationals Kurt Suzuki waits on the ball as Atlanta Braves Jason Heyward slides in safe in the third inning at their MLB game in Atlanta

    We’re only nine games into the season, but this weekend we have what you might consider to be the first big series of the season: Braves vs. Nationals at Nats Park. Atlanta is 8-1, their best start since winning 13 of 14 to begin the 1994 season. It’s hard to get a true gauge on them…

  19. Justin Upton, Paul Maholm an unbeatable combination for Braves

    Apr 8, 2013, 11:54 PM EDT

    Paul Maholm

    Justin Upton went 4-for-4 and homered yet again while Paul Maholm pitched one-hit ball for seven innings in the Braves’ 2-0 defeat of the Marlins on Monday. Upton leads the majors six homers, one more than Seattle’s Mike Morse, and he also chipped in with his second double tonight. He scored both runs for the…

  21. Braves sign Reed Johnson to one-year deal with option

    Dec 6, 2012, 2:23 PM EDT

    Reed Johnson

    Even though Reed Johnson struggled after coming over from the Cubs in the Paul Maholm-Arodys Vizcaino deal in July, the Braves saw something they liked. They re-signed the veteran outfielder to a one-year deal with a club option for 2014. Johnson, who turns 36 later this week, hit .302/.355/.444 in 169 at-bats for the Cubs…

  22. The National League is poised to have some excellent rotations

    Dec 4, 2012, 12:32 PM EDT

    Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez

    Even with Zack Greinke and Anibal Sanchez still up for grabs, the National League already seems set to sport some excellent rotations in 2013. How about this for the top four: Nationals: Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez, Jordan Zimmermann, Dan Haren, Ross Detwiler Giants: Matt Cain, Madison Bumgarner, Tim Lincecum, Ryan Vogelsong, Barry Zito Phillies: Roy…

  23. How about an Upton-Upton-Heyward outfield in Atlanta?

    Nov 25, 2012, 6:28 PM EDT

    Justin Upton

    We know the Braves are in hot pursuit of free agent B.J. Upton, who could well be the next top free agent to sign. It makes one wonder if they’d considering pairing the Upton brothers and bringing in Justin from Arizona. On the surface, it seems like a great idea. Neither Upton brother has quite…

    According to Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun Times the Cubs “already have expressed interest in” Brandon McCarthy and “another buy-low candidate the Cubs are eyeing” is Shaun Marcum.
