Mike Foltynewicz surrendered six earned runs over just 4 2/3 innings Monday in a loss to the Cardinals.

Foltynewicz looked off from the get-go in this one, yielding three runs on four walks, a hit-by-pitch, and a double in the top of the first inning. He then allowed a solo homer to Kolten Wong in the top of the fourth and a two-run blast to Paul DeJong in the top of the fifth. The 26-year-old right-hander fell to 11-10 on the season and watched his ERA jump from 2.66 to 2.90. He'll get the Phillies at home next.

Touki Toussaint will start for the Braves on Wednesday against the Cardinals.

It will be his first start since September 9, although Toussaint made a one-inning relief appearance on Saturday. The exciting rookie had an excellent debut last month but has struggled this month in two starts and one relief outing, posting a 6.35 ERA and 11/11 K/BB ratio over 11 1/3 innings. Still, the upside makes Toussaint a viable streaming option, albeit a risky one.
Sep 17 - 4:37 PM

Johan Camargo (groin) has returned to the Braves' lineup Monday against the Cardinals.

Camargo has been out of action since leaving a game last Tuesday with left groin tightness. He'll bat fifth in his return Monday against Miles Mikolas.
Sep 17 - 3:11 PM

Sean Newcomb was lit up for five runs over three innings Sunday in a loss to the Nationals.

Newcomb surrendered six hits, including a pair of two-run homers, in his shortest outing since July 3. The 25-year-old left-hander has struggled with efficiency throughout his brief major-league career, failing to complete six innings 24 times in 48 career starts. He possesses an electric arsenal, yet massive control issues (76 walks in 158 1/3 innings) continue to tamp down his realistic fantasy upside. With the loss, he falls to 12-9 with a 4.04 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 151/76 K/BB in 29 starts. He’ll look to rebound against the Phillies at home in his next start on Friday.
Sep 16 - 6:02 PM

Charlie Culberson went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in the Braves' loss to the Nationals on Sunday.

Culberson swatted a two-run homer, his 12th of the year, off Nationals reliever Greg Holland to trim the deficit to one run in the eighth inning, but the Braves late comeback effort fell short in this one. The 29-year-old third baseman has filled in admirably for Johan Camargo, who has been dealing with a nagging groin injury, going deep twice in his last five games.
Sep 16 - 5:52 PM

Ronald Acuna went 0-for-5 with a strikeout in the Braves' loss to the Nationals on Sunday.

Acuna was held hitless for only the fifth time in 15 games this month. He's going to be just fine. The Braves offense managed just eight hits on the afternoon with Acuna and Ozzie Albies going a combined 0-for-9 at the top of the lineup. The 20-year-old rookie phenom is hitting a sublime .292/.368/.574 with 71 runs scored, 25 homers, 55 RBI and 14 stolen bases in 432 plate appearances. The race between Nationals teenage slugger Juan Soto and Acuna for National League Rookie of the Year is going to come down to the wire.
Sep 16 - 5:26 PM

Johan Camargo (groin) remained out of the Braves' lineup Sunday.

He hasn't played since tweaking his left groin last Tuesday. Charlie Culberson is again handling third base in Camargo's place.
Sep 16 - 11:54 AM

Braves manager Brian Snitker said Johan Camargo (groin) still has some soreness and may sit out at least one more day.

It sounds as though Sunday isn't a question; the better question might be whether he misses any more games early next week. Camargo hasn't played since leaving Tuesday's game with left groin tightness. The Braves started Charlie Culberson at third base Saturday in Camargo's absence.
Sep 15 - 5:08 PM

Ronald Acuna went 1-for-4 and scored the Braves' lone run in Saturday's loss to the Nationals.

The rookie sensation is now slashing a robust .296/.372/.582 with 25 homers, 55 RBI and 14 stolen bases on the season. His .954 OPS is tops in the league.
Sep 15 - 5:08 PM

Julio Teheran struggled with his command in a losing effort against the Nationals on Saturday, allowing two runs on three hits over his four innings of work.

Teheran fought command issues in this one, issuing six free passes, including a walk of Adam Eaton with the bases loaded in the fourth. On the plus side, he did rack up seven strikeouts on the afternoon. He'll carry a 3.97 ERA and 1.19 WHIP into Thursday's start against the Phillies.
Sep 15 - 4:59 PM

Johan Camargo (groin) remains out of the Braves' starting lineup on Saturday.

Camargo hasn't played since leaving Tuesday's game due to tightness in his left groin. Charlie Culberson will once again start in his place at the hot corner and will bat seventh against Jeremy Hellickson and the Nationals.
Sep 15 - 10:46 AM

Kevin Gausman yielded four runs — three earned — over 5 2/3 innings in a 10-5 win over the Nationals on Friday.

Gausman wasn’t at the top of his game, allowing seven hits (including a solo homer to Juan Soto) and a pair of walks. He struck out just one of the 24 batters he faced. Gausman has looked shaky over his last two starts, but he’s still 5-2 with a 2.61 ERA through his first eight start with Atlanta.
Sep 15 - 12:23 AM

Ronald Acuna enjoyed a huge day at the plate Friday against the Nationals, going 4-for-5 with a two-run single and two runs scored.

The four hits are a new career-high. Acuna finished a homer shy of the cycle. Still, he collected a double, single, and a triple through the first four innings against Max Scherzer. We’re running out of superlatives to describe what this 20-year-old is doing right now. Simply put, he’s a star.
Sep 15 - 12:22 AM

Ender Inciarte finished 3-for-5 with two runs scored Friday versus the Nationals.

Inciarte had two doubles and a single as his big second half continues. He’s batting .306 with four home runs, 24 RBI, and 19 runs scored since the All-Star break. The only disappointment is that he’s just 2-for-6 in stolen base attempts during that time.
Sep 15 - 12:21 AM

Nick Markakis went 2-for-3 with two walks, three RBI, and a run scored in Friday’s win over the Nationals.

Markakis knocked in a run with a single in the fourth inning before coming through with a two-run single in the eighth. The veteran outfielder has faded since the All-Star break, but he’s tied for the major league lead with 176 hits and has reached 91 RBI. That’s his most in any season since 2009.
