  • Soroka to make first start in native Canada
    Mike Soroka will experience a thrill when the Braves open a two-game series against the Blue Jays tonight at 7:07 ET. Soroka will be pitching in front of a number of friends and family members, who will come from his hometown of Calgary to see him start in Canada for the first time. The 20-year-old right-hander carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning of Wednesday's start against the Mets. The Blue Jays will counter with Jaime Garcia, who spent last season's first four months in Atlanta's rotation.
  • Freeman, Braves dominating ASG ballot
    Freddie Freeman and Nick Markakis have drawn more All-Star votes than any other National League players. Ozzie Albies is also still currently positioned to be an All-Star starter. Seems safe to say the Braves have drawn notice across the baseball world.
  • Teheran throws 6 no-hit innings in win over SD
    Julio Teheran delivered six innings of no-hit ball, and Johan Camargo provided a two-run double that proved decisive as the Braves strengthened their status atop the National League East standings with Sunday afternoon's 4-1 win over the Padres at SunTrust Park. Teheran struck out a season-high 11 but showed a slight limp after the sixth. The Padres then got their first hit in the seventh. Matt Strahm started the Padres' planned bullpen day and pitched 2 2/3 scoreless innings.

  • Suzuki avoids serious injury when hit by bat
    Braves catcher Kurt Suzuki felt fortunate to avoid a significant injury when he was struck in the head with Raffy Lopez's backswing during the second inning of Sunday's 4-1 win over the Padres at SunTrust Park. Suzuki exited the game and underwent a series of evaluations, none of which indicated he sustained a concussion. The veteran catcher will be available to play defense or serve as a designated hitter when the Braves open a two-game set in Toronto on Tuesday.

  • Braves, Padres players remember their dads
    As Braves catcher Tyler Flowers delivered a couple of key hits after making an unexpected entry into Sunday afternoon's 4-1 win over the Padres, he was pretty sure his dad was relaxing and enjoying Father's Day without possibly knowing what was transpiring at SunTrust Park.

  • Braves host regional Pitch, Hit & Run event
    When Olivia Shaw, a Hoschton, Ga. native, stepped onto the field at SunTrust Park early Saturday morning, she wasn't very nervous, not that she should've been.
  • Gohara sent down to Triple-A to make starts
    While the Braves were hoping Luiz Gohara would establish himself as a valuable big league reliever, his recent struggles combined with limited activity have led the team to determine it's best to allow him to spend the next couple of weeks starting at the Minor League level.
  • Newcomb dominates as Braves shut out Padres
    Sean Newcomb remained stoic as he avoided early trouble and constructed his latest impressive start in a 1-0 Braves win over the Padres on Saturday afternoon. Charlie Culberson's fifth-inning homer provided the necessary support for Newcomb, who allowed two hits over six strong innings. The left-hander retired 13 straight to conclude his outing but did not return after a 25-minute rain delay. Playing in front of a SunTrust Park-record 41,916 fans, the Braves had trouble solving Padres starter Jordan Lyles, who allowed five hits and one run over seven innings but was dealt the loss.
  • Braves place Folty on DL, activate Teheran
    Mike Foltynewicz will get a little extra rest with a disabled-list stint, but it appears the Braves right-hander could come off the DL to start one of the last two games of next weekend's series against the Orioles.
  • Acuna could begin rehab assignment soon
    Ronald Acuna Jr. flashed a bright smile as he shook Braves manager Brian Snitker's hand and said, "Ready to go." While Acuna is close to being cleared to start playing Minor League rehab games, he will first spend the next few days working out at the Braves' Spring Training complex in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
  • Freeman stings Padres again, smacks 15th HR
    Freddie Freeman has frustrated plenty of pitchers over the past few years, but he has recently picked on Padres pitching to enhance his MVP credentials.
  • Braves seeking answers after 'pen falters vs. SD
    Now that the Braves feel good about the depth in their rotation, they may have to further their thoughts about possibly using their starting pitching surplus to bolster their bullpen. Braves manager Brian Snitker wasn't ready to make a decision or specifically reveal potential plans after his bullpen squandered a one-run seventh-inning lead in Friday night's 9-3 loss to the Padres.

  • Braves being cautious with Acuna's knee
    Ronald Acuna Jr. has successfully progressed through the preliminary process of reacquainting himself to baseball activities. But the Braves have maintained a cautious approach with the young outfielder, who will test the strength and stability of his knee this weekend.
  • Inciarte among those poised for turnaround
    Ender Inciarte has been here before. He hit .227 with a .599 OPS through the 2016 All-Star break, then batted .341 with an .836 OPS the rest of the way.
