Braves P Mike Minor had to get urethra surgery – ouch

Regular readers of LBS will tell you that one of our favorite pastimes is poking fun at baseball players for their weird — and oftentimes wimpy — injuries.

I'll update if any games are added. Remember, you can listen to every single game's broadcast on the Braves Radio Network.

Braves Batting Order Restored

Atlanta Braves analysis: finishing up with our series on the Atlanta Braves batting order, I’m going to discuss the seventh and eighth positions.  So far I’ve agreed with Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez on batting Freddie Freeman third and Evan Gattis fourth.  All the other positions we have differed. I’d like to see Tommy LaStella start the season at second base and hit seventh...

Reliever Ryan Buchter making push for Braves talented bullpen

Ryan Buchter is pulling double duty this spring training. First, there's baseball, a craft the 6-foot-3 Braves left-hander has been professionally honing for the past nine years at various minor league destinations. After team workouts and games comes dinner. Then class until lights out. The 27-year-old journeyman pitcher, who is coming off a dominant 2013 campaign at Triple...

Braves starting pitcher Mike Minor recovering from urethra surgery

Mike Minor was one of the few young Atlanta players that didn't get a contract extension this winter. While a deal still may get done this spring, Minor may not be too active during Spring Training, because this winter, he underwent...urethra surgery. Oh. Mike Minor is a few weeks behind because he had to rest for a month after undergoing a 12/31 procedure to repair scarring...

Justin Upton Needs More Consistency

Continuing with our series on the Atlanta Braves batting order, I am going to talk about the number six position.  I think Justin Upton should bat sixth for the Braves. and that is despite the fact that he had a .301/.384/.538 in the number two slot in the order last season. Fredi Gonzalez has already indicated that Upton will again bat second this season, based on his numbers last...

Three Cuts: Braves drop first spring game; Garcia starts strong

The Atlanta Braves took to the field for the first time in 2014 on Wednesday afternoon, looking similar to the group that hung around with Clayton Kershaw and the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 4 of the NLDS last season. With the Detroit Tigers in town for the first game of spring training, the Braves gave veteran Freddy Garcia (the Game 4 starter) the starting nod and lost in a rain...

Will Andrelton Simmons Hit?

One of the major pieces of breaking baseball news in recent days was the Braves’ signing of shortstop Andrelton Simmons to a seven year, $58 million contract extension. This is big news partially because Simmons is arguably the first, youngest and least experienced player to earn such a deal primarily because of his defensive excellence. […]
