Losers of 20 of their last 22 on the road and 27 of their last 38 overall, the Braves are, for the moment, baseball’s worst team. Since the All-Star break, they’ve performed poorly in every aspect of the game.
Batting: .241 BA, .295 OBP, .341 slugging
Pitching: 4.53 ERA, 1.431 WHIP (starters ERA, 4.82)
It’s a wonder they’re 11-22 since the break.
Williams Perez, today’s starter, has been among the worst second half performers. He’s lost all four starts since returning to Atlanta, with a 7.30 ERA and 1.784 WHIP. If he’s a member of the 2016 rotation the Braves are in trouble.
