5/24/2016 | Teheran notches 4-K inning in dazzling start

5/24/2016 | Proud grandfather Snitker relishes time with family

Brian Snitker did not necessarily expect to sell his house as quickly as he did this winter, and he certainly did not anticipate the opportunity he gained when the Braves dismissed former manager Fredi Gonzalez last week. So for now, Snitker will simply appreciate that he is likely the only big league manager living in his daughter's basement.


5/24/2016 | Crew Scoots way to win in pitchers' duel

5/24/2016 | Snitker likes Inciarte in CF with Smith in lineup

5/22/2016 | Atlanta's 'train rolling' after encouraging trip

Though they ended a 10-game road trip a 5-0 loss to the Phillies on Sunday afternoon, the Braves returned to Atlanta with a different look and feel than they had when they were last home nearly two weeks ago.


5/22/2016 | Phils ride Eickhoff's 7 scoreless over Braves

5/22/2016 | Pipeline preview: Walker, Sheffield among prospects to watch

Here's a look at top prospects to watch in today's Minor League action:


5/21/2016 | Birthday wish: Continue to dominate dish

If Braves right-hander Williams Perez uses his birthday wish wisely, he will request that each of this season's remaining starts prove to be as efficient as the two dominant ones he has authored against the Phillies over the past two weeks.


5/21/2016 | Kelly to make first '16 start as Braves eye sweep

5/21/2016 | Norris now late-inning bullpen option

Bud Norris may not rejoin the Braves' rotation at any point during this season, but if the right-hander continues to pitch as effectively as he has since moving to the bullpen, he could prove to be one of the reliable late-inning relief options Atlanta has been seeking.


5/21/2016 | A.J.: No disrespect meant by celebratory hop

As A.J. Pierzynski has attempted to duplicate last season's success, he has provided the kind of production one might expect from a 39-year-old veteran who has served as a catcher in nearly 2,000 Major League games.


5/21/2016 | Power on: Braves double HR total in 5 games

Maybe it's purely coincidental that the Braves have matched their previous home run total since essentially turning Monday's batting-practice session at PNC Park into a modified home run derby. Or maybe the more aggressive approach taken during this week's batting-practice sessions has simply helped create some confidence for an offense that needed it, especially in the power department.


5/20/2016 | Morgan, Perez vying to replicate gems in Philly

Both Adam Morgan and Williams Perez picked up wins for their respective teams when the Phillies and Braves met earlier in the month. They'll square off Saturday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park, with Atlanta looking to secure the series after a win in the opener.


5/20/2016 | Wisler, Freeman's 2 HRs lift Braves in Philly

5/20/2016 | Braves call up De La Cruz, option Gant

When Mike Foltynewicz recorded just nine outs in Thursday night's 8-2 loss to the Pirates, he became the second Braves starting pitcher to complete fewer than four innings within a three-day span. Thus, there was a need to provide yet another Minor Leaguer a chance to serve as a long reliever in Atlanta's bullpen this weekend.


5/20/2016 | Pinder, Taillon among top prospect performers Thursday

A look at the best performances from top prospects Thursday.


5/19/2016 | Braves' young arms experiencing growing pains

Even though they came to Pittsburgh feeling good about the early results produced by their reconfigured, young starting rotation, the Braves knew they were still bound to continue dealing with the growing pains.


5/19/2016 | Polanco backs Locke as Pirates beat Braves

Left-hander Jeff Locke threw seven strong innings, Gregory Polanco led another complete performance by the Pirates lineup and the Bucs beat the Braves, 8-2, on Thursday night to clinch a victory in their four-game series at PNC Park.

Braves shortstop Erick Aybar was taken to a medical facility to have a chicken bone removed from his throat late Thursday afternoon.


5/19/2016 | Gutsy pitching change pays off for Snitker

Brian Snitker understood the risk he took when he removed Julio Teheran to provide Arodys Vizcaino a four-out save opportunity on Wednesday night at PNC Park.
