Atlanta's Shelby Miller, who has gone 0-10 in his last 18 starts despite a 3.24 ERA, is MLB's unluckiest player. Who else makes the list?
The Braves have moved Shelby Miller into Mike Foltynewicz's rotation spot for Monday night's game against the Marlins.
Justin Bour has homered in 2 straight games. He aims to stay hot in the #Marlins series opener with the Braves.
Miller will pitch tonight instead of Tuesday because Mike Foltynewicz (illness) was scratched from the 7:10 p.m. start vs. Miami. Miller is 0-10 in his last 18 starts despite a 3.24 ERA.
Gregory Murrey fell during the 7th inning of Saturday's game. The medical examiner ruled the death was caused by blunt force injuries to Murrey's head and torso. Murrey's family released a statement today, which read in part: "The night Greg passed away, he was doing one of his favorite things -- watching the Braves."
The death of a longtime Braves season-ticket holder raises questions about the planned height of guardrails at their new stadium scheduled to open in 2017.
This weeks four featured teams have all played a lot better in their own friendly confines than they have on the road this season. The plummeting Braves own the biggest home/road split in the National League; the White Soxs always-leaky defense has looked even worse away from the Cell; the loaded Blue Jays have been on fire since their trade deadline shopping spree but still own a sub-.500 road record; and the Orioles road losses have prevented them from making headway in the crowded race for the ALs second wild-card spot ... and Baltimore manager Buck Showalter has some thoughts about that.
