CHRIS WITHROW RUMORS

WATCH: Braves reliever can

  The Atlanta Braves have the second worst record in all of baseball, and one particular event Friday night summed up their season perfectly. Reliever Chris Withrow was summoned from the bullpen in the 7th inning, but there was just one problem: he couldn’t get out of the bullpen no matter what he did.   It should be noted that this was at Citi Field in New York, so this...

Watch Braves reliever Chris Withrow's epic struggle to open the bullpen door

The Atlanta Braves surprisingly had few problems on Friday night against the New York Mets, with the exception of the Citi Field bullpen door.Called in to protect a 4-1 lead in the seventh inning, reliever Chris Withrow had a little trouble getting to the mound. So, how many Braves relievers does it take to open a bullpen door?Perhaps that incident should have served as an omen....

Braves add Bonifacio for extra bat, Withrow sent to minors

CHICAGO (AP) The Atlanta Braves have added an extra bat for their bench by selecting the contract of veteran utility player Emilio Bonifacio from Triple-A Gwinnett. Reliever Chris Withrow was optioned to Gwinnett on Sunday to make room on the 25-man roster.

2014 Dodgers In Review: RP Chris Withrow

G IP K% BB% ERA FIP xFIP WAR MLB 20 21.1 31.1% 20.0% 2.95 3.79 4.11 -0.1 What Happened In 2014: So long, elbow. Remember how surprisingly useful Chris Withrow was in 2013? Perhaps we should have been worried that his 2014 kicked off with a February Brim post in which he worried about how much projection systems didn’t seem to like Withrow, but Brim was confident. Brim was right...

Chris Withrow’s Elbow Takes A Long Vacation

Eight days ago, Chris Withrow was optioned down to Triple-A in order to make room for Hyun-jin Ryu to return from the disabled list and start in New York. (Fans hated it, though it made all of the sense since he was walking half the league.) I was in the locker room that day, and as we cautiously eyed Paul Maholm to see if maybe it’d be him, it always seemed clear it’d be Withrow...

Let’s Just Accept That Chris Withrow Is Getting Optioned Now And Be Done With It

On Wednesday, Hyun-jin Ryu is going to be activated from the disabled list in order to make a start in New York against the Mets. This is, of course, outstanding news, and puts the rotation at full strength for the first time all season.

Projection Systems Don’t Like Chris Withrow, Should We Be Worried?

(via) Chris Withrow had a surprisingly good season in 2013. After being stuck in AA for over three years, he managed to make an impact at the major league level, which was far beyond what we expected. Withrow’s season came out of nowhere, but it was not without its warning signs. As a result, all four major projection systems that have been released see Withrow taking a major step...
