Open thread, 6/15, #Braves vs. results

They may be talented, but so far Atlanta’s top prospects haven’t performed up to expectations. Which is not to say they won’t. But so far, so meh.


Rio Ruiz, .258 BA, .363 slugging, 60 Ks, 56 games

Ozzie Albies, .238 BA, .282 OBP, 42 games

Tyrell Jenkins, 2.91 ERA, 1.446 WHIP, 6.2 K/9

Lucas Sims, 6.80 ERA, 1.791 WHIP


Dustin Peterson, .276-7-39, .774 OPS

Dansby Swanson, .245-4-20, .726 OPS, 39 games

Sean Newcomb, 4.11 ERA, 1.462 WHIP, 69 Ks, 37 BB, 65-2/3 IP

Chris Ellis, 2.75 ERA, 1.131 WHIP, 7 K, 4BB/9


Braxton Davidson, .225 BA, .660 OPS

Max Povse, 3.82 ERA, 1.273 WHIP, 9.2 K/9


Austin Riley, .260-3-24, 80 Ks in 223 AB

Lucas Herbert, .228-2-19

Max Fried, 4.25 ERA, 1.416 WHIP, 8.6 K, 5.2 BB/9

Mike Soroka, 2.92 ERA, 1.155 WHIP, 8.2 K, 1.9 BB/9

Touki Toussaint, 4.89 ERA, 1.298 WHIP (dominant last two starts)

The present is still grimmer. The Braves, at 18-46, are five games behind the pace of the woeful ’88 Braves. As many as 2,000 people are gathering to see this line-up face off against the immortal Anthony DeSciafani:

Mallex, Inciarte, Freddie, Garcia, Markakis, Peterson, Flowers, Aybar, Norris

    A few nights ago Chip & Joe showed a stat that the Braves had played the toughest schedule so far this year. However, the Braves are 4-13 against losing teams, so that’s not why the Braves have a bad record.

  2. I don’t think they’re going to win 50 games

    Did anyone else notice last night that the highest batting average in the starting lineup belonged to the pitcher? (Thankfully, that changed after multi-hit games from Freddie and Adonis.)
