The 20 worst A-Braves pitchers: #19 Mark Redman

Craig Wilson (remember him?) started at 1B. Chris Woodward hit lead-off and played second base. Tyler Yates and Oscar Villarreal had cameos. And on the mound to start the 2007 home opener? Veteran southpaw Mark Redman, whose stay in Atlanta was blessedly brief.

His first start as a Brave, on a freezing night at the Ted, reminded us why he was on his 7th team in 9 years. Redman allowed 9 hits and 5 runs in 5-2/3 IP en route to an 11-1 loss. And it was far from his worst start.

A week later Redman gave up 6 hits and 7 earned in 2-2/3 IP vs. the Fish. He didn’t make it past the third 10 days later against the Marlins. In his next start the Phils chased him after 1-2/3 in which Redman walked three, allowing 5 hits and 4 earned. An ingrown toenail landed him on the DL, and he returned for one last appearance, in relief against the Red Sox. Two walks and a grand slam later, Redman was released.

Redman as a Brave: 0-4, 11.63 ERA, 21-2/3 IP, 38 H, 11 BB, 2.262 WHIP.


One thought on “The 20 worst A-Braves pitchers: #19 Mark Redman

  1. The 2006-2008 seasons are ripe with many such characters. Chris Resop. Kyle Davies. Lance Cormier. Anthony Lerew. Wil Ledezma (a strange story in there). The dynamic closers-by-committee of Ken Ray, Chris Reitsma and Jorge Sosa. Danys Baez’s appendix.

    Almost makes me nostalgic. Almost.
