I think this was the expected outcome when the injury happened. Hate to see that happen, especially being the second time in 4 years. Makes you wonder what the long term prognosis is.

As for this year's team, they're in the thick of the playoff race (if you're willing to consider it a race in late May) and they've really gotten nothing from him. You've also gotten nothing from Riley and Murphy, who will be back soon, and very little from Olson, who seems to be showing signs. Harris and Ozzie are also due for some improvement, although Ozuna is probably due some regression. I'm sure AA is already working the phones to see what trades are out there. Let's not forget he loaded up in 21 after Acuna got hurt and we all know how that ended up.

Something has definitely seemed off with the team this year, so I'm curious to see how they respond to the injury.

I like Acuna but I sometimes wonder how he rubs his other teammates.

I remember there were always reports that he and Freddie butted heads when Freddie was still there.

Only two runs today but that was enough with Fried pitching!

Spencer Schwellenbach is making his MLB debut tonight. Started the season in High A, made a brief stop in AA, and now he's in the Show. You hate to put too many expectations on him, but it sure would be nice if he could solve the 5th starter problem.

Rock bottom? Feels like rock bottom.

Braves take game 1 in Boston. Murphy got hit by a pitch and had to leave though.

Braves also signed Brian Anderson to a deal as a depth piece.

Offense didn't show up again. The Braves pitching is holding up OK, but they have to near perfect with this offense.

Maybe they were corking the bats last year. This year's team is pathetic.

Braves win vs the Rays but Harris left with a hamstring injury

Braves have won 5 of 6. Pitching continues to be good. Minter should start throwing rehab soon.

Schwellenbach had his best appearance tonight. Hopefully he can build on that and solidify the 5th starter spot. Waldrep wasn't quite ready yet.

Up to 7 of 8. Got to enjoy Ozzie getting to face LHP's!

They were up 2-0 after 2 pitches. You don't see that often. Nice win against the mighty Yankees.

Hope they can ride this hot streak into the break. I don't even care that much about winning the division, but the Phillies have finally hit a rough patch and the lead no longer feels insurmountable.

So much for making up ground while Harper and Schwarber are out

Took the series vs the Phillies and now heading out west. Sale, Lopez, and Ozuna are all stars. I do hope they add Chavez. Doesn't really belong but what the heck the guy is 40 and still playing at a high level.

Took the first two in Arizona.

Rosario back with the team.

Hope to keep this momentum rolling into the All Star Break…then really turn it on in the 2nd half!

The pitching has been so good lately. The best part about last night's game was Minter's 3 pitch 9th inning. You don't see that very often

Rained out and will play a double header tomorrow. We have signed 9 of our first 10 picks from the draft so far.

Goodness this team.

How many injuries can we have?

Murphy
Acuna
Harris
Fried
Strider
Riley
Who else?

Ozzie left the game hurt today. Don't know the severity but it didn't look bad. Maybe just a sprained wrist.

Ozzie is out 8 weeks. Nacho Alvarez coming up. Ozzie has been awful this season (like the rest of the lineup, excl Ozuna), so I can't imagine the production out of second base getting any worse, but it's still ridiculous the injury luck this team has had this year.

Yikes! Felt like we were finally gaining a little momentum before the All Star Break.

Braves signed Whit Merrifield, who promptly got hurt in pre-game warmups. Can't even make this stuff up.

Nacho is playing and batting 2nd. Big spot for the rookie who started the year at AA.
