Can Fredi Gonzalez Deny Jordan Schafer Much Longer?

Atlanta Braves outfielder Jordan Schafer is having an outstanding 2013 season.  Schafer has arguably been the most consistent Braves  position player, hitting .346 in April, .293 in May and .323 in June. In his quest to become a starter, Schafer nailed his resume to Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez‘s forehead Sunday afternoon against the Milwaukee Brewers, by going 4 for 5 with...

Braves' Beachy Plays Catch For First Time Since June 13th

Braves starting pitcher Brandon Beachy, who suffered a minor setback in his recovery from Tommy John surgery, played catch Sunday and threw from 30 and 60 feet, the first time he’s picked up a ball since his setback with elbow inflammation, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. His Sunday session went fine, so Beachy will throw a bullpen session before the end of the...

Braves Mid-Season Top 20 Prospects

This is not MLB.com’s Atlanta Braves prospect list. This is my own list that I have compiled after watching Braves minor league games and keeping stats halfway through the season. I will put the # that MLB.com had them ranked preseason beside each pick, so you can see where these young Braves minor league players stack up.  For me, some players have hurt their prospect status...

Braves’ Justin Upton out with sore hand

The Atlanta Braves held outfielder Justin Upton out of their lineup for the second consecutive game with what manager Fredi Gonzalez called a sore right hand. While Gonzalez told reporters – including Joe DiGiovanni of MLB.com – that Upton was available to play, he wanted to give the slugger a chance to rest his hand for three straight days, including today’s off-day...

McCann Slams Braves Past Brewers

Brian McCann hit the 10th grand slam of his career on Sunday The Braves bats finally came alive on Sunday afternoon.  The Braves won 7-4 and managed to take 1 of 3 from the Brewers in the weekend series.  Previous to Sunday’s game, the Braves had been held scoreless their last 24 innings and losers of 8 straight at Miller Park. Brian McCann did not let the 24 inning scoreless...

FanGraphs Audio: Tim Hudson Now on Tim Hudson Then

Episode 353 On August 19, 1999, the author went to Fenway Park expecting to see Pedro Martinez beat the Oakland A’s handily. Instead, Martinez was outdueled by then-rookie right-hander Tim Hudson. Hudson discusses that start and other relevant matters on this edition of FanGraphs Audio. Don’t hesitate to direct pod-related correspondence to @cistulli on Twitter. You can subscribe...

Taking stock of Braves' play at third base in post-Chipper era

Chris Johnson turned on the waist high, hanging breaking ball from the Brewers' Alfredo Figaro and drove it the opposite way for a solo home run in the Braves' 7-4 win Sunday. It was his fifth of the season and the second in five games. From the offset, Johnson made it clear he knew the difficulty of what was being asked of him this season at third base. "I know the...

Braves drop series to Brewers, hold ground in NL East

Brian McCann snapped the Braves’ consecutive shutouts in game 3 with a grand slam in the 1st inning. When baseball writers use the phrase “feast or famine” in baseball, they usually apply it to streaky players. However, the Atlanta Braves’ offense is as streaky collectively as the most streaky player in the game. Never has this “feast or famine” pattern been more obvious...

Dusty Highes retires from baseball

Dusty Hughes, 30, has retired from baseball. Hughes pitched in 12 games for the Gwinnett Braves at the Triple-A level before being released from his minor league contract last month. Over parts of three big league seasons the left handed Hughes compiled a 4.99 ERA and a 1.58 WHIP for Kansas City and Minnesota. Hughes is said to becoming a coach at a private school.

Preview: Santana, Royals welcome Braves to Kauffman

The Atlanta Braves and Kansas City Royals are hoping they've put an end to their respective scoring slumps. That doesn't mean runs will be easy to come by Tuesday night. Ervin Santana looks to continue his outstanding stretch on the mound and provide a rude welcome to the Braves, who counter with Kris Medlen in the franchise's first visit to Kansas City. After consecutive...

The Statistical Worthiness of OBP and AVG

Dan Uggla has a great OBP, but his AVG is terrible. (Photo credit) How many times have you argued with your friends over a topic that is so insignificant to your daily lives, but you both debate with a level of vigor usually present in a presidential debate? I think I'm going to need a couple more hands and feet to properly keep track. So, if you are into those kinds of arguments...

2nd Half Fantasy Rebounds: BJ Upton, RA Dickey

There are many players that are disappointing teams this year (No, I'm not going to mention Josh Hamilton. I think his performance so far this year has been well documented). Fortunately, there is still more than half the MLB season left for these guys to get it together. Let's take a look at a pitcher and two hitters that need to rebound the second half of this year and...
