  • Sean Newcomb will make his next start on Monday after his scheduled start against the Nationals was rained out on Saturday.
    Advice: The Braves have decided to keep Mike Foltynewicz on his scheduled turn on Sunday, with Newcomb getting pushed back until Monday. Julio Teheran will have his start pushed back from Monday to Tuesday.

  • Sean Newcomb let in three runs in 5 2/3 innings and was charged with a loss to the Diamondbacks on Saturday.
    Advice: He gave up RBI knocks to Steven Souza and Jeff Mathis in the early going and then served up a solo bomb to Ketel Marte in the sixth. He didn't get any run support as the Braves were shut out in the loss. The young left-hander falls to 8-5 with a 3.51 ERA and 1.28 ERA through 19 starts. If he can harness his control a bit better and cut down on his walks (52 in 105 innings) he could evolve into a top of the rotation pitcher down the road.
