Look out for
The Braves are 5-0 since Chipper Jones joined Twitter (@RealCJ10), including a three-game sweep of the Phillies. That put them 13 games over .500 for the first time this season, but theyre four games behind the first-place Nationa...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Atlanta Braves placed right-hander Tommy Hanson on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday with a strained lower back.
Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez had said Hanson - who is 12-5 with a 4.29 ERA - would likely be given extra rest before his next scheduled start, but Monday night's trade with the Cubs for Paul Maholm made that move unnecessary.
Maholm will join the Braves on Wednesday...
Manager Fredi Gonzalez said right-hander Jair Jurrjens "was fine" when he was told Saturday that he'd be going to the bullpen, replaced in the rotation for the foreseeable future by right-hander Kris Medlen.
However, Medlen will join the rotation Tuesday night against Miami only if general manager Frank Wren is unable to swing a deal for a veteran starter by that afternoon...
The Atlanta Braves sent outfielder Christian Marrero to Pittsburgh for infielder Brian Friday on Saturday, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported. The Braves need infield depth with injuries to shortstops Andrelton Simmons and Jack Wilson. Marrero, who had played at both Class AA and Class AAA this season for Atlanta, is expected to replace promoted Starling Marte at Class...
ATLANTA (AP) -- Mike Minor struck out nine and combined with Craig Kimbrel on a four-hitter, Jason Heyward had two hits and drove in a run, and the Atlanta Braves edged Joe Blanton and the Philadelphia Phillies 2-1 Saturday night.
Minor (6-7) allowed one run on four hits and no walks in eight innings. His nine strikeouts matched his season high. He retired the last 13 batters he...
ATLANTA -- Mike Minor solidified his spot in the Braves' inconsistent rotation with a Tom Glavine-esque fastball -- 89 mph -- with which he struck out nine Phillies over eight innings to lead the Braves to a 2-1 win Saturday. Craig Kimbrel pitched the ninth for his 30th save. "We got two runs and we made it count," manager Fredi Gonzalez said. Minor didn't...
ATLANTA -- Chipper Jones doesn't usually play a day game after a night game, but he had to play Sunday when the Phillies sent Roy Halladay to the mound, because Jones was batting .500 against him. And Jones delivered again, scoring one run and driving in another with a home run to lead the Braves to a 6-2 win and a series sweep of their National League East division rivals....
Player of the game. :)
Mike's gameface and smileface are so different - love it! And, can I just say, I'm pretty tired of people saying he doesn't belong in our rotation. He clearly does. He's had a rough inning here and there but for the most part he's been awesome. Seems like Glavine always gave up runs in the first but then he settled in and now? Now his number...
Atlanta Braves right-hander Tommy Hanson had very little control last week against the Miami Marlins, but it all worked out.
It didn't for the uncharacteristically wild Mark Buehrle in his recent outing versus Atlanta.
Hanson will try to lead the Braves to a sixth consecutive victory Monday night and help them continue their mastery of the Marlins as he squares off against...
ATLANTA (AP) -- Jason Heyward and Chipper Jones homered off Roy Halladay, and the Atlanta Braves completed a three-game sweep of the last-place Philadelphia Phillies with a 6-2 victory Sunday.
Atlanta, which began the day four games behind first-place Washington in the NL East, has won five straight.
Tim Hudson (10-4) gave up two runs and seven hits in 5 2-3 innings. Hudson combined...
Final: Phillies 1, Braves 2.
WP: Mike Minor (6-7, 5.18 ERA)
LP: Joe Blanton (8-9, 4.59 ERA)
SV: Craig Kimbrel (30)
In order for a team to be a serious contender, both their offense and pitching have to click and perform efficiently at the right time. For obvious reasons, the 2012 Philadelphia Phillies have been unable to do just that. With tonight's loss, the team may feel...
High socks and high hopes on a Monday #Braves instagr.am/p/NuRZMWJnPF/

More soon. THIS IS THE BEST GAME EVER AND I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M NOT THERE.
ATLANTA -- Mike Minor solidified his spot in the Atlanta Braves' inconsistent rotation with a Tom Glavine-esque fastball -- 89 mph -- with which he struck out nine Philadelphia Phillies over eight innings to lead the Braves to a 2-1 win Saturday. Craig Kimbrel pitched the ninth for his 30th save. Minor didn't rattle when Chase Utley hit a solo home run in the fourth inning...
ATLANTA (AP) -- The Atlanta Braves have boosted their rotation and added a right-handed bat to their bench by acquiring left-hander Paul Maholm and outfielder Reed Johnson from the Chicago Cubs.
Braves general manager Frank Wren confirmed late Monday night the team is sending right-handed pitchers Arodys Vizcaino, a top prospect who had season-ending Tommy John surgery in April...
