A look at what's happening around the majors today:
This year’s Braves also have a full-time designated hitter for the first time, and don’t have a run out a pitching staff that batted a collective . an OPS+ of 9), as the 2003 team did. And that’s including Russ Ortiz and Mike Hampton, who were pretty good hitters for pitchers.
The Braves have announced the return of starting pitcher Max Fried off of the injured list and back to the big league team. Absolutely massive news as the Braves are entering the final stretch of the regular season with a slim 2.5 game lead in the division. They will need big contributions from the starting staff if they look to make any kind of impact so the arrival of Max Fried is extremely welcoming news.
